To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Works well in open areas but as soon you go across rooms its off and ON, its almost like you need a line of sight (non obstructed ) between the sender and receiver. We are talking about less than 25 feet
Out of the box setup was quick and easy. Used this to avoid a long HMDI from my component video/stereo rack to my new BenQ projector for my newly installed 100" screen. It connected right away and we watched "Antman" as a precursor to the sequel coming out soon. Video quality was okay but not as crisp as I expected. At times it looked more like DVD quality than Blu-ray but mostly pretty good. After 2 days the receiver stopped powering on. Tried different outlets in different rooms with no luck. Since the image quality wasn't what I expected (especially for a device at this cost) I'm going to a $17.00 50 ft high speed HDMI cable and a wall cover to hide it running up to the projector. Return was offered with no issues.
I bought this product to connect my Xbox to my TV in another room so I could play in either location. It works in theory, but there is a delay that makes playing games impossible. It's only a fraction of a second, but when playing games that require quick reflexes, it doesn't work. Very disappointing for such an expensive product.
For the price it does what I need them for. I use them to transmit the HDMI signal from my NVR (Camera DVR) to a Monitor in the den about 30 feet. The video has a tendency to freeze every so often, so these units would not be suitable to watch TV or Movies with. They do run pretty hot which I attribute to poor design. I have them on smart plugs that turns them off at bed time and on in the early evening. The did connect to each other ith out any problems.
We use these in all of our job site trailers for meetings. I have had nothing but problems with a couple of them. One gets overheated and shuts off after a couple hours of use. I'm going to have to find another solution because the price doesn't justify buying any more.
First Experience: I run a photo scavenger hunt business (frogquest.com) and wanted to display the photo slideshow on 3 TVs all with line of sight to each other. The furthest TV was 50ft from the transmitter, but while I was able to get the first TV (25ft away) to connect no problem, I wasn't able to get the second to connect at all. I tried multiple receivers, but no luck. I ultimately had to suffice with just the two TVs, which is a bummer given the price of these things. Now, I'm not sure how useful they'll be in general.
Its unfortunate that manufacturers have to resort to B.S. advertising hype to differentiate their products.
This system definitely functions better than IOGear's less powerful "non-pro" model from last year. The basic difference is that you can transmit to several different receivers at the same time. We have one receiver in the living room and one receiver in each bedrooms. (Total of 3 receivers) The signal is transmitted in full 1080p resolution with sound level and surround sound intact. We are not audiophiles around here so I can't comment on the nuances of the sound delivery except to say we notice no degradation between the transmitted sound and the direct link to the soundbars.
The "hype" part that disappoints was the advertised range. I found this system to have no further range than last years non-pro system with its single receiver. Definitely not several times the range it advertises.
It works perfectly in the same room. It can handle one wall between out to about 40 feet. Two walls and you start to have problems. The room with 2 walls between requires me to mount the receiver near the door and run long hdmi cable to the projector.
The signal definitely won't carry through 3 walls, to another receiver outside the house (50 feet away.) To use it with our outside projector I have to mount the receiver in the closest bedroom and run a 30' hdmi cable the rest of the way.
It seems to hiccup occasionally when we are transmitting to all three receivers at the same time. Its rare that we need to do that, but still it appears to be a limitation.
This equipment and last years single receiver equipment both have hdmi passthrough so you can run your signals into the transmitter and then out to the closest TV. Each display that is in a remote location will need its own receiver.
If you need to use more than one remote receiver then this is the equipment you need. For all other applications the non-pro model is sufficient. Signal range is about the same. Reception quality is the same. Only difference is the number of receivers.
Both HDMI cables that I ran during remodeling went bad ( not sure how), regardless, ordered this 4K connector. Works good, 1080 no problem, however, 4K signal is not happening. IR is not needed for signal. TV and Cable box are 5ft apart. Hope someone can assist in how to get the 4K signal.
