When Belkin killed its FlyWire
, it also put a serious hurtin' on the hopes of wireless HDTV
ever truly taking off in the near term. Granted, the device was horrifically overpriced, but it was easily the most well-known product in the fledgling sector. Now, however, it seems that a few other players are sneaking into the limelight, with Philips recently introducing its sub-$1,000 Wireless HDTV Link
and Sony pricing its DMX-WL1
for the everyman. Today, Best Buy's own Rocketfish has introduced its WirelessHD
Adapter, a two-piece set that enables a single HDMI device to be connected to an HDMI-enabled HDTV sans cabling. You simply plug your source into one box and your HDTV into another; so long as the two are within 33 feet of one another, 1080p content can be slung without wires. It's up for order right now at $599.99, which -- amazingly enough -- is actually more
expensive than that 30-foot Monster HDMI cable
you were secretly eying.
