I ordered the Asus model for a customer; I'll see how it performs.

From what I can tell this is a 2 item kit, so you dont have to worry about router issues from what I see, its a mated conection between your GPU and the adapter on the TV. Its not something you run on your home wireless network.

This would be hugely benefiticial if done right, Id like to know if you can tap the PC to more then 1 TV at a time.

Any idea of the total costs of this?

Could be great. Still a $5 cable will work but not as convenient.

Pointless and or a waste of money cause i already see $99 price tag
I game on my big screen all the time with out moving my rig.
Wireless M/KB and a thirty foot VGA Frankenstein cable and extra long M/KB sensor.
For streaming movies may I suggest a HTPC and a home network.

between Wireless N, WiFI, Cell phones, Wireless Electricity, and the cordless phone I don't need anymore "signals" in my home.

htpc's are a lot more than $100..
I think this could be huge. I could already see it being quite beneficial for watching movies on the 55" tv downstairs. I could just stream it wirelessly down to the tv from my main computer.

If your 55" TV has a USB port then just put a movie on flash drive then plug it into the TV.


Ive been watching HD movies on my big screen for a while and I don't own a Blu-ray player or this HD streaming device that's why I said waste of money cause there are already cheap work arounds if your tech savvy.

the problem with this is, a few (most?) TVs that I know of can't read NTFS, only FAT32, which makes HD nearly impossible with the 4GB file limit.

if my house was filled with money transfers and nuclear material such that my house is deemed radioactive, I'd advise you all to start running >;)
