Pretty good product, though not perfect....,
This review is from: NETGEAR Push2TV TV Adapter for Intel Wireless Display PTV1000 (Black) (Old Version) (Electronics)
This basically worked as advertised for me right out of the box. I have a Toshiba R705 laptop that has the Intel Wireless Display capability built in.
I connected the adapter to TV and power using provided connectors. Then I fired up the Intel Wireless Display software, typed in the 4 digit code displayed on the TV and then the connection was rock solid.
Connection never failed
Audio and Video were extremely good.
Streaming movies from netflix was excellent, no different than streaming from my LG blu-ray player
Youtube etc etc etc, everything was excellent.
Google Web albums looks great
If you fail to break the wireless connection between the adapter and laptop before closing the laptop, the laptop basically has to be "hard" rebooted. (i.e.disconnect from power and remove battery) since the LCD screen refuses to function after waking up.
The screen has a little bit of space (half an inch all around) around the edges where the wireless display doesn't put anything (even when you set the laptop resolution to match the TV resolution). My TV has a adjustment using which I can fill it up, but other TV's may not have such adjustments and it is a little bit of a pain.
UPDATE: Found a adjustment in the Intel software that lets me increase the size to fill the screen. Extremely happy with the product now!
Overall, I am happy I bought this product. I'm able to do a lot of stuff like stream foriegn TV channels etc etc that I could not do before. It's a bit pricey for 99 bucks, but doubtless there will be price drops.

I think i get it. Connecting your TV via wireless streaming from your computer. Hmmmm, if I have a TV with built-in wireless adapter I wouldn't need this would I? My Panasonic G20 doesn't have wireless built-in but I have a D-Link DWL-G730AP wireless adapter that I plug into the ethernet port (yea it sucks it doesn't have a USB port) for my TV to get into my wi-fi network to play Amazon Video, Netflix, Youtube, etc. The network setup was a pain and in fact I can't get it to work again after my settings got screwed up when I hooked it back to my ReplayTV. I'll try this and if doesn't work I can always return it or sell it on eBay. My old unreliable wireless ethernet adapter costed me $50 which can be had as low as $15-20 sometimes.

Unless your laptop is equipped with the intel wireless display hardware as part of the chipset, it won't work. The netgear adapter will not work without the specific PC hardware.
