    This product worked great, right out of the box, as I was easily able to stream video from my laptop right to my TV.

    Well, set-up was quick and easy, plugged the USB adapter/transmitter into my Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 (64 bit) and loaded drivers with no problem.

    I then connected the receiver via HDMI > AVR > HDTV and plugged it in and in a matter of seconds the desktop was extended to my TV screen. I was prepared to have to move things around since my laptop sits about 18' away from the TV and it's not a direct line of sight, although you'd never know it, as it connected quickly and solidly, no issues here.

    Okay, so far, so good. I then proceeded to go into the laptop's display settings and changed it from 'extend' to 'duplicate desktop'. It quickly responded and I was now looking at my desktop on my TV screen but the resolution was off, i.e., everything was oversized, so opening a web page that would normally fit, I now needed to scroll to see the page in it's entirety. Thinking this was just a matter of adjusting my laptop's output resolution, I was expecting to correct this easily but my laptop's recommended (maximum) resolution of 1366x768 was no longer an option....the highest resolution I could choose now was 800x600 so I couldn't change how the desktop or web pages were displayed on my TV screen. Oh, and the picture on my laptop was now pillar boxed and couldn't be changed either.

    Then it occurred to me that maybe I just needed to restart the computer....nope, it didn't help, it came up the same way. I will say this though, the picture quality was very good, text was crisp and easy to read, and I may have even been able to live with the aformentioned problem but things got worse. I'll explain.

    I like to watch movies, and I have a really nice TV for doing this. Streaming movies from the web to my PC was lame because I only have a 19" LCD, but they look great with this product on my TV. Netflix streaming through my PS3 was really poor quality compared to the browser based one as well. I also like that I can put together a slide show of my pictures and let the entire family view it on the TV which having to crowd around my computer to see them on my monitor. The best part is the ability to be doing something else on my regular monitor while the the TV shows the movie/youtube/pictures at the same time.

    Very fun product to have in my living room. Not only have we been watching on line videos from shows we missed or on youtube, but also looking at pictures and home movies stored on our computer. It was very relaxing to not have to huddle around a small screen, and we can all enjoy watching on our large TV as a group and family. Definitely worth it for the $149. I have been waiting for a product like this!

    The product was easy to install. I had one hiccup with full screen video not showing from some online sites like hulu. I followed the manual which said to disable 'hardware acceleration' by right clicking on the video and it fixed the problem.

    I ordered my LINK on Pre-order on Friday Aug 28th. I set it up in my bedroom attached to a 52" Samsung 720P HDTV. The setup was easy; quick reminder, plug the dongle in first, before turning on the adapter unit attached to the TV. Once I did that, I changed the source input on my HDTV with my TV remote to the alternative HDMI port. There on my TV screen was my laptops desktop image. I chose duplicate mode instead of the default of extended mode in the popup window. That way my TV's image mirrored my Laptops screen. I didn't have to do any configuration to make the dongle connect, so it was easy to get going.

    I brought up Google, then some news sites. Looked great. I then went to YouTube and Hulu and watched some video. All looked and sounded very good.

    I have since used Skype to video call my daughter. It was a different experience. Instead of this tiny image on my 13" laptop, she was full sized on my TV, with the sound coming from the TV's speakers.

    I bought the Link because I wanted a simple way to watch general Internet video, Hulu TV shows or Netflix up on my TV using my laptop. I wanted something easy to set up that didn't make me learn new software or buy a media server. What I like is that I can use the PC applications or visit web sites I am already familiar with but watch up on my big TV instead of my little laptop screen. Likewise, I can give the dongle to my son, and he can use his MAC with the Link and connect to the TV if he wants to.

    First thing first, this is my first review of anything, but I felt so strongly about this product that I needed to break the chains of my product review laziness and share the wealth. A little background on me..I am a apple fanatic, from the iphone, ipad, macbook etc. I watch alot of sports live feeds on my computer that I stream to my tv. In the past I have used a HDMI cable which was always a hastle and looked horrible, and set up was time a drag. So when I saw this product I jumped on it! I was a little skeptical with some of the reviews. I am never one to buy a product right away. I always reseach, research, research, sometimes too much. After much deliberation, I decided to try it out. And the verdict is....it is AWESOME. Set up was so simple a caveman could do it, the pirture quality is unbelievable, mac compatiability was amazing, and to top it all of look mom NO CORDS!!!! Now all I have to do when I want to watch my computer on the tv is change the input. Overall, awesome product, great service, and my new favorite toy!
