    3.0 out of 5 stars Pricey and Poor Signal Strength 24 July 2010
    Verified Purchase
    I bought one of these for my Sony Bravia EX703. I echo the thoughts of others about this being a bit overpriced, but if you want to connect the TV directly to the internet you'll have to accept it.

    I find it does not pick up the signal very well if the router is not in the same room as the TV. I normally keep the router in my study, and I can access the internet on a PC or PS3 from any room in the house, and in some parts of the garden. However, I can't connect to the internet on my Bravia if the router is not in the same room. SO I've had to move the router into the living room. I can still access the internet in any room in the house on my other equipment, so I don't understand why this dongle is so weak.

    Most of the stuff available on the Bravia is of no interest to me, I just hope they get Freeview on it soon. I was quite surprised to see my music collection from my PC appearing on the TV after I fitted the dongle. Although this isn't necessary for me as I have a PC connected to my AV receiver and can play my PC music through the amp in any case.

    So overall, the item works, albeit with limited strength, it's pricey and you don't get a lot when you connect it to a Bravia TV.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Very Poor Signal Strength 20 Dec 2010
    I read the reviews, and was not put off by the larger than normal number of negative comments about signal strength. I trusted in Sony (they have served me well in the past). Surely it could not be that bad, I thought. It is.

    I struggled for a few hours to get it working. I then took my new 40 inch Bravia into the room where the router is (I could not extend the router so had to move the TV). Bingo, it worked first time. 5 bar signal strength. My daughter re-watched the final of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC iplayer. I was impressed. (Not with strictly!).

    I then returned the Bravia to the adjacent sitting room, some 20 feet away. Zero bar signal strength. I could not believe such a dramatic change in such a short distance. So I repeated this again a further three times. All with the same result.

    I'm deeply disappointed that Sony has produced such a weak wireless adaptor. It seems, as others have said, there is a high risk this wireless adaptor will not work if it is in a different room to your router.

    All the other wireless devices in the house run fine off the router. My son's PS3 even works in his loft room.

    It seems from the reviews I have read, that you have a 50:50 chance of this working for you. You may be lucky. I was not. I shall be seeking a refund, and I've already ordered a 20m ethernet cable to run under the floor.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Why buy this when you can get the same cheaper 30 Sep 2010
    Have a look at the Netgear WNCE2001 Universal Network Adapter, does the same and available for 33.00
    Also it is not tied in to one manufacturer.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Internet Tv 25 Aug 2010
    By Notnehs
    Bought this to be used with a new Sony tv. Really easy to set up (just followed the guide that came with the tv).
    Now can watch Internet tv directly on the tv.
    Signal strength is good and the picture is great - much easier than watching on your laptop!
    Only downside is that it doesn't yet work (to my knowledge) with BBC iplayer, itv,4od or sky player - come on you guys stop making us watch on laptops!!!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Try Solwise 21 Nov 2010
    I was intending to buy this Sony internet adaptor to receive iplayer on my Sony EX703 TV. However, after reading some poor reviews for the Sony adaptor (poor wireless connectivity with router; expensive) I read the tip suggesting that a Solwise solution involving Solwise 85Mbps Homeplug Adapter - Twin Pack was cheaper and better. Basically, it uses your ordinary electical system to transmit the signal. So I bought that instead and it really is excellent - very simple to use. You insert one plug into a standard 3 pin wall socket near your router and then connect this plug to your router with the cable supplied, then do the same with the other plug and your TV in any room in the house.Once I downloaded the Sony software update, which I would have had to do with the Sony adaptor too, it enabled me to receive iplayer without any problems. Highly recommended alternative that, for obvious reasons, Sony do not promote as an alternative.Solwise 85Mbps Homeplug Adapter - Twin Pack

    We have a wireless network that works fine with four laptops, nintendo wii and various ipods BUT not with this expensive assessory. With laptops we are able to view the BBC Iplayer reliably. But with this it would only register 100% if we moved the router into the lounge. Even just outside the door the strength reduced to less than 50% which effected the iplayer buffering. I retuned it and got a full refund. Now I will have to hardwire an ethernet cable at some cost and inconvenience. Very, very dissapointed and expected better from Sony.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as claimed/ expected! 4 July 2010
    By Andy B
    I bought this adapter to work with the brand new Sony Bravia 32" TV I Wanted to use the wireless features of the set. My wireless Hub is the latest Netgear "N" ADSL 2 Wireless Router and is in the study approx 5 Metres away from the set in a seperate room. The adapter sees the network with a strong signal yet the set will often fail to connect. It HAS to be the adapter. I also have an LG390 Blu Ray with wireless and that works fine. It is up to you buy I would not buy this product again and would look at alternatives
