Diamond VStream Wireless HD Video Streamer
We’ve reviewed the Bit-Stream and Veebeam similar devices in the past, and it looks like this one from Diamond suffers from the same lag as the Veebeam, so that’s something to keep in mind if you were considering this for full-time usage. I’m actually in the process of converting my apartment and will be attempting to use one of these full-time, so stay tuned for that blog.
The very first thing you will notice when you take the Diamond VStream out of its box is how small the base station is. In fact, with its Lilliputian dimensions (3.4″ x 3.4″ x 1.6″) and weight (0.10 lb.), few if any will have troubles finding room for the VStream in their home entertainment system setup. The inherent disadvantage to the Diamond VStream’s size is that there is only room for a single HDMI output on the back. This unit has no component, no composite and no digital audio output options. This is perfectly fine if you are running it directly to your HDTV, as the digital audio and video signal will go over the one cable. If you have an aging amplifier or TV without a HDMI input, this device may not be right for you and your needs.
