Since Tech Savvy Daddy loves gadgets as much as I do, I thought I’d get him to test out Veebeam and Intel’s Wireless Display that allow you to stream content to your television. Here’s his review of each product along with a comparison and remember to enter to win your own Veebeam!
- Photo slide shows
- Streaming content from places like Hulu, Netflix, iTunes
- Playing MP3s
- And any other uses
- Number 1… It does not require a shiny brand-new laptop. It’s a self-contained system with a receiver box and a small wireless USB stick. You plug the USB stick into your laptop and stream to the receiver connected to the TV.
- Advantage Number 2… It’s both PC and Mac compatible. It may not be as elegant as using chips embedded inside your computer, you can plug the stick into any computer, even your friend’s. Your childless-friend can bring over their pictures from their month-long backpack trip across Europe and annoy you to death with their tales of all-nighters, bar-hopping and general singleness. Who wouldn’t want that? Anyway, back to the topic at hand.
- When not in use, the USB stick fits nicely into a storage slot on the Veebeam receiver.
- The receiver has an optical-audio out port which you could use in case you need to run audio to your stereo independently of the HDMI to your TV. If you use your TV’s speakers or your stereo has HDMI ports, this isn’t an issue. But it’s good to have this flexibility.

Veebeam provided a product for review purposes and will be directly shipping one to a reader as a giveaway. In accordance with the FTC Guidelines and WOMMA Code of Ethics, I am disclosing that Intel Corporation covered travel to attend Upgrade Your Life in New York City. Additionally, I received products for consideration during the event. I am not expected to return products after my review period. No compensation was received for this post nor was it an expectation that we write about the event. All opinions are my own and Tech Savvy Daddy wrote this guest review without knowing that Veebeam was providing a unit as a giveaway. Images courtesy of Veebeam and Intel.
