When I first heard about Intel’s Wireless Display technology after this year’s CES, I was intrigued. This technology, which is built into your laptop, lets you view the contents of your computer on your HDTV. All that’s required is a small adapter, the Netgear Push2TV, that stays connected to your TV. There’s no cable to snake, content to transfer, or file compatibility to worry about. It sounded great.
Now that I’ve spent some time testing out the Intel Wireless Display system, I can say that it lived up to my expectations — for the most part. The system was not without the occasional hiccup, but overall, it provided one of the best ways I’ve found for viewing PC-based content on your TV.
The system is only available on three laptops: the Toshiba E205-S1904, Dell S15Z-2249CPN, and Sony VPCS111FM/S, all of which are available exclusively from Best Buy. As of this writing, the retailer is offering the Push2TV adapter as a free add-on when you purchase one.
