"Quick delivery"on by Tomas_Eklund
Pros Looks nice - finish and look similar to original Wii parts. This was exactly the item I need for my setup with multiple gaming consoles to be hooked up to one projector through a HDMI switching receiver.
Cons (I haven't had the chance to try it yet. Star rating is preliminary and based on concept, price, delivery time and finish.)
Summary I have just received the product and unfortunately I cannot try it at this point, but the long shipping times mentioned in other reviews seems to have been fixed now. It took exactly one week (7 days) from when I placed the order until the postman rang the doorbell and delivered the package. I think that's pretty good considering it has traveled around half the globe (Hong Kong to Sweden).
Pros It works fine right out of the box. Better resolution then composite but pretty much the same as component. Cleaner install for your entertainment center.
Cons Price and long wait for shipping. This is the only HDMI convertor I have found for the WII.
Summary I bought this mainly because I wanted to use a single HDMI cable to make my Plasma TV installation cleaner. I would of given it 5 stars but the price and shipping pretty much suck, LOL.
Pros The product didn't kill me.
Cons The product didn't kill me because it still hasn't arrived 10 weeks after I ordered it.
Summary I have a TV with one set of component/composite inputs and 4 HDMI inputs. The component/composite input is needed for a composite device so I ordered the Wii2HDMI in order to connect a Wii to the TV. I placed the order on February 1 2011. Over the next 4-6 weeks I contacted the company several times asking when my order would arrive, each time being provided a shipping number and being asked to be patient. It's now been *ten weeks* since I placed the order and *six weeks* since I last heard anything from the company. I'm in the process of having the charge disputed.
In short, if your goal is to spend $46 on nothing, then by all means place an order with Neoya. If your goal is to get a device that connects your Wii to an HDMI input, I suggest you look elsewhere.
Pros Quick shipment - for a price. Fully functional plug-and-play in less than five minutes.
Cons No U.S. vendor.
Summary On the Neoya site, after adding to cart, at the "Proceed to checkout" page, click on the "Get Estimate" button and pay the extra six dollars for registered international airmail. Mine arrived USPS Registered in only nine days.
Pros Small size.
Cons Only buy this if you don't care about when you get the product or how it performs.
Summary I ordered a Neoya HDMI converter because my Wii was going to be used with a TV that had only an HDMI input available. Neoya charged my credit card the same day I placed my order online, but did not ship the product.
Three weeks later I sent them an email asking for my order to be cancelled. They did not answer my email or cancel my order, but instead then took the converter to the post office in Hong Kong. Perhaps they left it in the post office lobby, because, according to the tracking number they provided, the part was still sitting in the Hong Kong post office weeks later.
Eventually, several additional weeks after that, after I was no longer living at the address at which I needed the product, it arrived.
Weeks after that, a friend forwarded the part to me. I don't need it at my current location, but decided to try it anyway. While I didn't expect it to improve resolution beyond what the Wii is capable of, I also didn't expect the resolution to be downgraded from what I had using the Wii component video cables. It's as if the converter lowers the bandwidth of the Wii signal before converting it to the digital HDMI signals.
Other reviewers may be happy with Neoya and this product, but for me, it was a purchase and experience I regret.
