Pros Decent range, easy to setup, price
Cons echo, distortion, range, remote
Summary I bought this a few months ago from Best Buy and have had the chance to move this all over my apartment. It has a decent range and will work through walls...though not well. I had to experiment with placement to get a good strong signal.
I have it currently placed about 70' away (through two brick walls) from the transmitter in another room and I get pretty clear sound. Occasionally it will fade or breakup if there are a lot of people in either room. On a whole, it was pretty easy to set up for putting a spare speakers into another room.
If you are looking for sound quality, I'd look elsewhere. Otherwise, it was a great product.

Pros the devices uses 2.4 GHz
Cons unknown - I have not tried the product
Summary I am considering buying this product so my rating is bogus, I'm just adding info. I called Rocketfish and was told that this device uses the 2.4 GHz frequecy to send the signal.Updated
"...chips operate in the 2.4GHz band, the same one used by most household appliances. However, the chips use a proprietary wireless transmission standard. The standard has a small spectrum footprint and can use up to 40 different channels in the spectrum. This lets the chips dynamically elect channels not being used by other devices and cut down interference."
Pros No more unsightly wires and no wire routing
Cons Not much power
Summary I wish the rear amp had more power since my receiver puts out 100W to the rear, but otherwise I've never had any pops from my rear speakers. I have a HTIB Onkyo setup. The rear speakers will hum a little bit if you have the stereo off and leave the receiver/rear amp on, but I always turn mine off when I'm not using it. Great sound for movies, but not for audiophiles.

Pros Limits Wires, easy to set up
Cons Random pops, not made for anyone with OCD, the sound never gets "perfect"
Summary This is a decent in-home system if you can set this up relatively close to your speakers. The biggest problem was the random pops and a speaker randomly not working. This is really just a pass type of item.
In other words, this item isn't worth it unless you can set it up close to your sound system, or you have a small empty room.
Pros Good price and quick fix.
Cons If another transmitter is close it may interfere or block transmit ion.
Summary When I NOTHING or a continuous "PINWHEEL" I thought the problem was my MAC or the APPLE TV transmitter. After trying everything, as a last resort I unplugged the Rocketfish and the APPLE TV came on immediately. The two transmitter were next to each other. I had to separate them by 3 feet but still get some intermittent problems.
