Review: 1byone's 5GHZ Wireless HDMI Streaming Media Player

I have been looking into obtaining a streaming media player for a while. I just didn't make the move to actually get one until recently, and to be honest, I'm not sure why I wanted one so much now.

   Do not get me wrong. This is not a bad little product. You plug it into your television and then look/watch photos and videos from your smartphone, tablet or PC. Where are you watching them? On your television screen. Bigger and clearer picture.
   It sounds awesome, but there are quirks that 1byone needs to work out. For starters, getting this little sucker going is somewhat of a pain in the rear. You have to make sure you download the right version, or else it will not work properly. The instruction manual that comes with the player is also vague. There needs to be more details - especially for technological inept consumers such as myself. I was about ready to give up on it until my husband came home and got it running. I've used it a few times since then. It's a nice accessory to have, but it is not necessary.
   I could see myself using this for a video presentation if I needed to at work. But, since I am not in that position, it is kind of moot. However, it would come in particularly handy for those people.
Full disclosure: I was sent this product free of charge in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
