[Amazon] Amazon.com - Netgear PUSH2TV Wireless Display $29.99 After MIR

Well rated Netgear WiDi unit that is pretty heavily discounted on Amazon.com at the moment. Retails for $145.00. Pretty good deal at $49.99 and then $20.00 MIR! Also eligible for free shipping.

More and more laptops are coming equipped with Intel WiDi technology, this is a great wires free option and improved over it's first iteration!

We are not able to ship this item to your default shipping address.
this is in Ontario FYI.

However this is a newer model for $59.99 ($10 more than the $49.99 before the rebate): http://www.amazon.com/Netgear-PTV3000-1 ... b_title_ce

Thanked OP nevertheless.

Scroll down a bit, and you'll see this.

Shipping: Currently, item can be shipped only within the U.S.

Good for those with US address or want to get the package redirected.

Definitely better deal for those with US address, tough to find shy of $100 territory in Canadian retail stores..

You need a compatible Intel processor for this to work. Maybe a product like that will exist someday but for now you'll have to use wireless HDMI.

You're half correct. You current need a compatible Intel process, and to be using MS Windows. I use Linux. While Intel's support for Linux is generally good, WiDi is unsupported.

This is a good deal I believe.
Just to add I have the latest model 3000 and I love it with my HP Pavilion dv6. I paid $60 Dell Canada. It is very small. I got it going very quickly. I don't recall updating the s/w. Distance to my Panny 42" about 16 ft.
For those who want some tips for the 3000. Perhaps they might work for the 2000

Not necessarily. Miracast is supported by the WiFi alliance and Intel isn't necessary for it (look at the Android devices). From a technical standpoint, all you need is the 5GHz antenna.

Edit: go buy a miracast dongle or streamer . Many exist on the market, iirc.

Right you are about Miracast, past Intel's WiDi.

What I want to do is duplicate my projector's screen to a monitor, for that I need the HDMI to be duplicated, not a USB display adaptor, which is why I said "hdmi to widi/miracast." I haven't been able to find such a thing. Kind of ironic considering many of the Miracast dongles and Android are based on Linux. (= There are "WHDMI" devices but they won't be as useful in the long run and I don't want a more expensive, bulkier short term fix.
