We bought one of these at Christmas to send a Sky HD feed to the bedroom which is about 8 metres away from the box. This is a very expensive product, and after reading the reviews in Home Cinema Choice it won the lab tests so thought it was worth a go at least.
The product itself seemed well made, the power supply's seem quite cheap and I'm not sure how long they would last, packaging etc was ok also. Set up is simple and painless, although very basic, and this is where my troubles started. I initially set up as I intended it to be used, hooked up to the Sky HD and the LED TV in the bedroom, but the units would NOT see each other. I then went through a trial and error procedure moving closer and closer until the units would "pair". This, sadly, was in the next room about 3 metres away.
I contacted the supplying company who were very helpful, giving me a host of things to try, but sadly none of this helped. I will point out we live in a modest 4 bed bungalow, and to get to the bedroom "as the crow flies" so to speak you need to pass through 3 walls which are all concrete, so this obviously doesn't help. I tried in most rooms and they would only pair in the adjoining room as mentioned so I had to send the product back for a refund.
The manual states 10 metres, when I finally had it working we were down to just a few metres with no walls to consider, and is the reason why I am giving it a one star review.
In theory this Gigaview is a great idea if you don't want wires, but after deliberating it for a week or two I have decided to go for Sky HD multi-Room which is £10 per month, so over 2 years worth if you go like for like pricing with this product. Would this product last for 2 years? Only time will tell I guess.
