If you’ve got a reasonable knowledge of networking and computers and want to play your media files on your projector or TV, Edimax’s WP-S1100 media streamer is a good choice.
Price$ 599.00 (AUD)
The Edimax WP-S1100 is a wireless media streamer that connects to your projector or high definition television and relays compressed video files from your wireless-enabled PC or laptop computer. It requires a small amount of networking know-how but once set up it is an easy solution for broadcasting from your computer to a projector or TV.
The Edimax WP-S1100 mimics a normal wireless router in looks, with a body the size of a DVD case and two thick wireless antennas. It will easily hide out of place behind your television screen or projector, although it has an internal fan that can be heard if the room you’re in is quiet. HDMI and VGA ports on the player’s rear connect to a variety of 4:3 and 16:9 resolutions, including Full HD 1080p. There’s also a USB port and an RJ45 socket for a wired network connection.
To get the Edimax WP-S1100 up and running is an intensive process for anyone unfamiliar with computer networking. The quick start guide is simple enough to follow, though — if you’ve got a spare half hour, you should have no problems. After connecting your computer to the Edimax WP-S1100, a small download is necessary to install the Edimax media player software. Once installed, the software presents an option to switch between presentation mode and a media player — optimised for video playback. It’s easy to select a video file on your computer within the software and hit the play button, from there the WP-S1100 takes over and plays the video file.
Picture quality is perfectly fine, with no obvious degradation from the source content. One problem we encountered was a lack of playback controls when watching video content — the file can be paused by entering the on-screen menu, but there’s no option to fast forward or rewind. The Edimax WP-S1100 supports a range of file formats in MPEG1/2/4 containers including DivX and similarly popular codecs, while h.264 support is great for high definition video files. We tested it with video files ranging in quality from 480p DVD quality to 720p and 1080p high definition formats — when broadcasting from a 802.11n-enabled laptop there were no drop-outs or stuttering issues.
Edimax’s WP-S1100 media streamer relies heavily on a PC for content to be selected and played back — it has no ability to search a network for files remotely. With this caveat in mind, it does its job well — so if you’re a competent PC user looking for a way to connect your projector or TV without unsightly cables, Edimax has created a simple, complication-free solution.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
I rate the printer as a 5 out of 5 stars as it has been able to fit seamlessly into my busy and mobile lifestyle.
It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
