As a first here at Super Clash we were able to get a hold of a nice piece of hardware, especially suited for gamers. This is the PeerAir Wireless HD Multimedia System by Peerless-AV. I spent a couple of weeks with this wonderful piece of hardware and would like to reflect on all of my experiences with the device.
I honestly could not believe that this multimedia system would do all that it claimed to do. Let’s face it, we have all been lied to about what a product could do in the past. That was not the case here. This device doesn’t look like much, being as small as it is, but that is one of the nice things about it right out of the box. It’s such a small form-factor that it’s not overly bulky or ugly.
I had trouble operating the device at first, due to the instructions that were more confusing than they should have been. I then took it upon myself to guess on how to wire the device up. To my surprise, it worked on the very first attempt. I am a fairly tech-savvy person but, not knowing how to operate the device, the fact that the multimedia system worked on my first attempt at installation made me very excited.
Two slight drawbacks are that it only comes with one approximately 3-foot HDMI cable and the oversized power block. Many people have multiple devices plugged in, leaving little room for much else. In order to make room for the power plug, I had to remove two cables. Once I had the HDMI and power cables plugged in, I pulled the HDMI cable from my TV that connected to my Playstation 4 and put it in the first slot. I then went upstairs to a TV and proceeded to plug the receiver into the back. A few seconds later, the menu screen for the PS4 came on upstairs. I was quite excited at this point. I noticed a little video flickering at the start, but it resolved itself after a few minutes of gameplay. I think this may have been caused by a bad cable, so I can’t fault this unit for that particular issue. Unfortunately, I did not have another cable lying around to test this.
The system also has additional features. I then tested out simultaneous streaming to two TV’s, which worked out very well. I personally could not see a need for this in a home environment, unless I had a ton of people over and could not fit everyone in one room. Another feature I tried out was the ability to use the main transmitter as an HDMI hub. Though it worked well at this function, I would not recommend buying this for that sole purpose. I was able to plug my cable box and console into the back of the transmitter, and use the output of it, to bring it all up on my TV. This works well for people with a TV that only provides one HDMI slot. I proceeded to change the input on the TV to solely the output on the PeerAir; it worked flawlessly. This provides users with a beautiful 1080p experience that is flexible with nearly all home entertainment setups.
I greatly enjoyed reviewing the PeerAir Wireless HD Multimedia System from Peerless -AV. I see this device as very situational. One example would be a family with a main TV that everyone uses. Let’s say the kids want to play the game console and the parents are watching sports. The parents could send the kids to the other room and fire up the PeerAir. There is even a handy remote they can use to turn it on from the couch. Given that this product does exactly as it is advertised, I found it to be very satisfactory as a consumer who uses multiple electronic devices on a daily basis. The price tag may deter some consumers, but a quality product is often worth the price. I give this product 4 out of 5 stars.
