"Yes, it really does stream your Mac or PC, and well!"4.0 starson by notacapulet
Pros: Works consistently well from anywhere in the room. 1080p video streams smoothly - no jerky movement, no audio sync issues, beautiful picture! Audio is clear - no breaks or artifacts. Sounds as if it were connected by wire.
Cons: Product is clearly a first generation - updating firmware is very unpolished. Line of sight - generally, I have only broken line of sight by cupping the USB stick with my hand.
Summary: This product streams HD video and 5.1 surround wirelessly from your PC or Mac to your home theater system - and it does so very well. The Veebeam company is small, but their passion and support has been incredible. I purchased both the Apple TV (2G, aka the black one) and the Veebeam, to compare my experience. I have returned the Apple TV as my Veebeam experience was far superior - I need my HULU streaming! Also, I use the product to play music from it iTunes collection on my Yamaha receiver without the TV sometimes - so much utility in this product.
You will not be disappointed - I consider myself a tough critic, and I'm pleased. Purchase and enjoy!
