It's quite hard to find out decent information about the Wavi. I had been looking at it for some time before deciding to buy. There are little in the way of reviews which suggests it isn't selling well. I actually bought it from PC World as the price was down to £120. I am running windows 7 64 bit and use the Wavi to transmit to a TV in the next room. It is about 5 or 6m away through one wall. The fact that it transmits (according to Asus) up to 25m means that they must think it is worth having a go through walls but aren't confident enough to commit to it- nobody has rooms that big!!

I have been using it with a wireless keyboard (logitech- bought it for the Wii but the internet on the Wii is pretty terrible) and a PC remote control which was inexpensive but works much better than my wireless mouse which had terrible range and only worked intermittently. The remote has dedicated keys for media players etc.

You view your computer desktop on the TV and control it as though you were in front of the monitor. I use it mainly for streaming HD video- great for showing the kid's Christmas plays to the relatives etc streaming in HD from Windows media player. Also great for BBC iPlayer in HD and watching ITV player and 4 OD. I am likely to use it for slide shows of photos and can imagine it being good for gaming though that's not my thing.

I decided to go for the Wavi as I did not want a new interface to work with, simply to Windows which I am familiar with. Any file type on my computer can therefore be used rather than worrying about compatability issues with the different types of streaming devices out there.

Why 4 stars and not 5? Well, it has been slightly temperamental though generally works very well.

I purchased this last year and i have to say its been brilliant for me. I have read a couple of negative reviews on this and I'm certainly not disputing what people are saying but I've never had any problems with the device.

I mainly use mine for gaming from my laptop to my big TV and i have had very few issue's, bar the occasional stuttering in sound, but it really is minor.
It was well packaged and relatively easy to setup, as i said for me it's done everything its promised.

My main criticism would be the price, I would say the price of £190 when i purchased it last year was far to expensive for this type of device.
I still think at £160 its just too expensive but it is coming down in price, I've seen them sold for £130 and lower which is think is more acceptable price.

If you want to game, watch a movie or just surf the web on your TV then in my opinion i think its a superb piece of kit BUT i wouldn't pay the prices floating around at the moment.

Anything around £130/£120 its five stars but at this price its slightly overpriced.

I was looking for a device that could stream my different hdmi capable devices to my beamer and to my tv in the bedroom. The presentation is flawless and 2 hdmi cables are included which isn't something you see everyday. Unfortunately it wasn't able to connect properly through one measly wall and that kinda defeats it's purpose. It works properly in the same room without any noticeable lag for gaming. Good but don't buy if you have separate rooms.

There are 2 USB ports on this device, if you use a USB hub it's practically unlimited. And being able to plug a keyboard into the receiver has been a god send.
I would definitely recommend purchasing a USB fan for this, as it can get rather hot with intense use.

DISREGARD the others saying it will not work through ceiling etc. as I have had no problems in this regard. At all. 100% signal strength through a brick wall with all doors shut :)

Would have given only 4 stars due to it being 'fiddly' to set up and install drivers to get the keyboard working etc. However, I can now use my downstairs computer in an upstairs room by duplicating the screen. So this just makes the device WELL WORTH IT for me. Awesome. Just awesome.

This does not work through walls or ceilings, the only way I have got it to work is having the transmitter and receiver in the same room, which isn't really any use.

The wireless network that allows you to use a keyboard/mouse on the receiver doesn't work properly either, it connects and disconnects randomly, I have to restart my machine and turn the transmitter off and on a few times before it works.

Very poor range and USB doesn't work properly, waste of money.
