3 Diamond Multimedia Devices Essential for Traveling

If you aren’t already using multimedia devices on your travels, you’d be surprised at just how useful and productive they can be when you’re out of town. In this article, we’ll look briefly at 3 Diamond Multimedia devices essential for traveling. Whether you’re at business meetings or on vacation, they can be used just about anywhere. You can easily carry them in your purse or briefcase as you’re running down the airport terminal trying to catch that flight. Their small, lightweight, compact designs fit in the palm of your hand and are compatible with your laptops, Ultrabooks, and your mobile devices.

The Diamond UE3000 is a high performance, simple plug-and-play Gigabit Ethernet network adapter for desktop PC’s, laptops, Ultrabook’s®, docking stations, game consoles, digital-home appliances, and any embedded system using a standard USB port. It features a 10/100/1000 Mbps connection speed which can greatly boost your web surfing.

The built-in Ethernet adapter can be a life-saver if and when your laptop’s network card decides to die without notice. If your laptop only supports wireless and you’re uncomfortable with the security of your hotel’s WiFi, connect the UE3000 to the Ethernet cable in your hotel room and set up a more secure network with the hotel’s wired network.

The Diamond WR600NSI is a Dual Band 2.4GHz/5.0GHz Wireless Range Extender and repeater that allows you to repeat and extend the wireless coverage of your existing WiFi network. My co-worker uses this himself while traveling. Every summer he rents the same condo on his favorite lake for a week. His wife and kids need WiFi access but the owners of the condo will not let him use their WiFi Network. So he configures the repeater as an access point and hardwires it by Ethernet to one of their router’s Ethernet ports, providing his entire family with wireless internet.

The Diamond WPCTV3000 – Stream2TV is a device designed to stream content from your smartphone or tablet to any Large-Screen TV, wirelessly. All in 1080P HD quality. Mainly used for entertainment purposes, I can watch online movies and videos from my mobile device on a hotel’s TV. But since it has a VGA port, I can also use this device to stream useful informational content to a larger audience using a projector.

Hopefully these products will give you some ideas to help you work, provide some entertainment and set up presentations while you’re traveling. The more you use these compact and innovative multimedia devices, the more you’ll realize just how valuable they are when you’re on the go.

Want to Watch TV on Your Laptop or PC? The Diamond USB TV Tuner – TVW750U Lets You

That seemingly difficult task of wanting to watch TV on your laptop or PC can be a challenge. One of the first steps to achieving this is with the use of a TV Tuner – basically an antenna hooked up to your laptop. In essence you don’t even need a TV at all.

Maybe you’re tired of paying high monthly fees to cable companies. Or maybe, if you’re like me, you would like to sit outside somewhere or inside a coffee shop, and watch TV on a laptop.

Sure, Netflix and Hulu are great alternatives to cable TV but they don’t offer any sports programming and as time goes by, you’ll soon start missing all of those Sunday morning football games.

The Diamond USB TV Tuner- TVW750U takes care of that. It’s a digital USB TV Tuner that receives world-wide broadcast signals and travels easily with a USB connection directly to your laptop or PC. That means I can take my laptop and the TVW750U and watch TV on a beach in Waikiki.

The Diamond TVW750U brings error-free reception optimizing the amount of digital TV content available with picture clarity only found in high-end HDTVs. With the TVW750U, entertainment possibilities are virtually endless.

The TVW750U comes with an array of accessories and is ready to use right out of the box. With the antenna, you can get ATSC, DVB-T, Clear-QAM Digital TV Support (unencrypted digital TV) PAL, SECAM and NTSC Analog TV Support.

I also like to record TV shows and watch them later and the TVW750U is perfect for saving these shows as digital files that can be stored in your hard drive.

It’s also great if you’re a college student and want to take a break from all that studying. You can watch TV in your dorm room without the need for an actual TV.

And of course, the Diamond TVW750U can also be used with Cable TV. Just plug your cable into the TVW750U and enjoy all of your favorite cable TV programming. However the limitations are that you will only be getting basic cable.

Those of us who really want to get into the portability of TV on our laptops are the ones who will benefit the most from this device and if you’re one of them, then the Diamond USB TV Tuner TVW750U is just the ticket. The TVW750U and other really neat multimedia products are available at: www.diamondmm.com.

Got WiFi Dead Spots? Extend Your Wireless Range with the Diamond WR600NSI Wireless Range Extender

Continuing on why I like to download and surf the web at ridiculous speeds, we’re going to take a deeper look at WiFi signals and how they can slow you down. Again, standard network speeds these days are adequate, but when you’re far from your existing DSL or cable modem, things can get a little –well, frustrating to say the least.

Luckily there’s something you can do about it. Extend that wireless WiFi range and eliminate those annoying wireless dead spots. By extending your wireless range, you can stay a step ahead of your busy day by not having to wait for a good WiFi signal, saving you time.

Wireless dead spots can occur when the signal from the router to your devices becomes weak and ineffective. Whether it’s your router distance or obstructions within your home or office, wireless dead spots are a part of our wireless lives.

The Diamond WR600NSI is a Dual Band 2.4GHz/5.0GHz Wireless Range Extender and repeater that allows you to repeat and extend the wireless coverage of your existing WiFi network. I keep one in my house and one in my office. Simply plug them into any outlet and never have a problem with your signal again. Download videos faster and enjoy sharp displays every time you surf the internet.

Many people now have dual band routers supporting 2.4GHz and 5.0 GHz bands. Here are the benefits of the 5.0 band and why you should use a dual band repeater with your dual band router.

1.     On the 5.0 GHz band, there is no interference from other devices such as cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, Microwave ovens, alarm systems and or any other device using the 2.4GHz signals.

2.     5 GHz channels are less crowded. Most interference comes from other neighboring WiFi networks running on the 2.4 GHz band.

3.     Two-in-one network device.  The WR600NSI supports both 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz devices at the same time.

I especially like the compact size, portability and wall-mounted design which makes it so easy to set up anywhere. It easily pairs up with any client device such as my smartphone, tablet or laptop and the plug-n-play connectivity involves no confusing configurations.

The Diamond WR600NSI also features a Signal Strength Indicator. The Smart LED Indicator lights up and determines whether the signal is weak or excellent. For added security, it also features an easy-to-use WPS WiFi setup button.

What I love about innovative products like this is when I find that it does more than I had originally wanted it to do – such as converting WiFi to Ethernet; this is what we call a wireless bridge. Or simply put, connecting it to internet-ready devices such as HDTVs, game consoles, Blu-Ray and media players.

The Diamond WR600NSI Wireless Range Extender also lets you create access points wherever and whenever you want, creating a hotspot in places like hotels or anyplace where only wired Ethernet connections are available.

So if you’re looking for a way to get more out of your WiFi network, I highly recommend you check out the Diamond WR600NSI Wireless Range Extender. You can find this and other great networking products at: www.diamondmm.com.
