Introduction:

With all the content now available to us on our computers we are always looking for simple ways to share and display that content, not just from our laptops or computer screens, but also on a big screen TV. With bulky set top boxes and cable connections we can do just that. However, there are alternatives. Today I have the pleasure of reviewing a device from Diamond Multimedia that is one such alternative. We have their WPCTVPRO VideoStream Wireless USB PC to your TV device on the bench and are going to put it through its paces.

The Diamond Multimedia WPCTVPRO VStream wirelessly streams HD video and internet content to your HDTV. Enjoy and share your home computer content and stream movies from your laptop from sites like Hulu®, Netflix®, Boxee, iTunes® and YouTube from the comfort of your own living room. Watch 1080P video and 6 channel HD 5.1 audio content, share pictures, presentations, office documents, web content and other types of data, on your HD display without wires. Read on and let’s see how well the VideoStream from Diamond performs on a larger size display streaming video and content without any cable limitations.

    Hi, this looks like a good device, with the heat generation do you think it would last in an environment that was left on 24/7? Or could you recommend a product that might be more suited?

    Leaving it on will not generate a lot of heat it only gets hot when your streaming video

    I bought DIAMOND PC to TV Wirelessly last week and happy to watch my laptop screen saw wirelessly on my Samsung HD LCD 40inTV. But I found that the system was not really support to transmit video file wirelessly to my TV. :-(

    I have 3 questions: 1- my desktop is in another room that has a glass door on it and it is about 30 feet away – will this transmit OK in that scenario? My second question is: 2- how can this transmit in 1080p quality when it uses the VGA port on your TV? I thought VGA technology was not up to that? Is there another similar product that has a stronger WIFI transmitter on the market yet?
