The Iogear GW3DHDKIT Wireless HDMI Digital Kit is an inexpensive, simple-to-use option for wirelessly sending HDMI video and audio signals in 1080p and 5.1 across the room or around the house without losing quality. The base unit has two HDMI inputs and one HDMI output, so you can leave multiple sources plugged in, and it can conveniently draw power from a USB 3.0 port (more on this below).

Runner-up

Nyrius Aries Home+

Nyrius Aries Home+

Better surround audio for more money

It’s a little pricier than our main pick, but combines two HDMI inputs with support for 7.1 sound.

Buying Options

$230 from Amazon

If you’re looking to fill the room with additional audio, the Nyrius Aries Home+ features support for 7.1 sound. Like our top pick, this model can support two HDMI sources, can be powered from a USB port, and performs reliably. However, additional cost kept it from taking the top spot.

Budget pick

Monoprice Blackbird Pro 16049

Monoprice Blackbird Pro 16049

A cheap single-source solution

This doesn’t have the range of our top two picks or multiple inputs, but it’s an inexpensive way to stream one HDMI source wirelessly.

Buying Options

$150* from Monoprice
$160 from Amazon

*At the time of publishing, the price was $146.

The Monoprice Blackbird Pro 16049 doesn’t work as well through walls as our other picks, but is strong enough to send the signal across a room. It’s a cheap, easy way to stream an HDMI source. It has only one HDMI input, but does include support for 7.1 sound and USB power, and was the least expensive model we tested.
