This unit worked fine once I moved it to within 10' of my pc.I tried it at 20'(due to the tv being in another room) and it had difficulty staying connected. I eventually had to get creative with a longer HDMI cable to get the transmitter and receiver closer together. A quirk of the software or my pc, I'm not sure which but I often have to restart my media player to get the sound to work.

I decided to try this product which was described as easy to install and ordered it thru Amazon. I was super disappointed.
1. After installing their application on CD, my laptop screen was magnified up 2000 times (big big icons overlapped and couldn't move anything) and nothing showed on my HDTV. Tried several times, got the same result.
2. Then called their support team for help. The person identified herself as engineer(from oversea) seemed to read a script and didn't know to troubleshooting problems...hour wasting. Then she told me to go their website download the application file and hang up. I did download the compressed zip file and couldn't open it. I tried to use other applications to unzip the file. Finally I still got the same result as CD downloaded. It didn't work.
3. Tried for six hours and was fustrated for the product described as easy to install. Many hours were wasted trying to make it work. Then I returned it next day after receiving.
To me, this product at this time is not worth unless they fix their application. I wouldn't recommend it. Don't take my words, try yourself and see it yourself. May be you can make it work. Good luck.

I probably just had a bad one, but I couldn't get it to connect to the TV after the first few minutes. When it was connected and I enlarged the picture it was very poor quality. The laptop was about 20 feet away and had direct line of site to the device. The other NetGear Push2TV adapter seemed like it would have worked with my WiDi capable laptop, but unfortunately my laptop wasn't compatible so it would disconnect. As such, I didn't try to troubleshoot or get a replacement. I was done with the PTVU1000 and just sent it back.

Seemed like just the thing to show the information on the PC screen on the much larger plasma across the room. It did just that with the mirror function. No delay and looks great. Software loaded fine. Connection to TV was simple. All work as advertised. Need to be a bit patient the first time the USB dongle is plugged in as it takes several minutes to gather and load all of the required drivers. Took about 30 minutes from inserting software disc and attaching the receiver unit to the TV before seeing the PC screen on the big screen. Really no problems getting this device running.

Hooking my laptop to my TV with a 15-pin cable was not compatible, too much flashing b/c of mismatched refresh screen rates, so I was glad to see something that worked without having a HDMI connector on my computer. I'm still just back in the USB port age.

Warned by somebody else's review, I checked my computer speed to see if this would be compatible to play decent streaming video and give it a try. The booklet says: System Requirements for 720p playback, you need a 1.8GHz Core Duo processor or better. For 1080p playback, you need a 2.4 GHz Core2 Duo processor with 2 GB of memory or better. Since I kinda had an idea of what this meant, I went on Help on my computer and searched until I found out how to check my computer speed. I saw enough numbers to give me hope that this an my High Speed internet would work out to project onto my 32" flatscreen. They also give you some adjustments you can make if you would like it to run a little smoother by making your image smaller. I would imagine that the bigger the TV screen, the more powerful a computer you need to project a better picture.

I got the package in the mail, followed the instructions step by step for hookup. Loading the program took the longest, a little under 10 min or so. Altogether it took about 20 minutes to set up ---- Then it worked!!!

SCREEN SIZE ADJUSTMENTS: I find the computer seems to give a lot of automatic popup buttons for "find best compatibility/optimization" so I click them and the screen fits the TV automatically. After I played with it a little bit, I found there are a lot of ways to adjust fitting things to the screen.

The PTVU 1000 is very easy to install. I had it working in mirror mode rather quickly, but the performance was somewhat poor and seemed to deteriorate as time went on. The colors on the TV were intermittently washed-out and the video became "jerky" at times. The sound was badly distorted at times, but the sound eventually became clear and stayed that way. I am using an HP Tower with a 2.6 GHz AMD Quad Core Processor and 8GHz of ram which should be enough. The video played perfectly on my monitor. I don't know if some issues are related to the AMD processor, but in my opinion there's no excuse for shipping a product with the flaws I encountered.

I read through the manual and tried all the suggestions of how to make the video better. Nothing really helped, so I tried the recommended extend mode. The result was the TV showed the background scenery with no desktop icons and no cursor. The sound from the movie could be heard on the TV, but that's all. Then, I noticed that I didn't have a cursor on my monitor either. I could not get back to the mirror mode even after a re-boot. I had to uninstall and reinstall the software. This was a hassle. I found that two drivers did not load: WSR_CBA.SYS and WSR_USF.SYS. I decided to get support from Netgear. What a joke. They require you to register -which is OK- but they require as much personal information as a mortgage lender: that's not OK with me. I was ready to send the product back when I decided to check Display Link for updated software. After downloading, the unit worked better but I'm still not able to get the "Fit to TV' or "Extend" modes to work properly. I think I may keep the unit because it meets my minimum expectations and I purchased it at a good price, but I would not recommend this unit to a friend.
