I have had this device now on both my TV and my Blu-Ray player for over 1 year and they have performed better than I had hoped. The device is thin and comes with a 90 degree adapter so it is out of the way on whatever Samsung device you plug it into. Easy setup in the devices setup options. Great for streaming movies and other streams from online content.

I was pleased to note the lower priced (but still proprietary) LAN adaptor for my TV. Sadly, it seems to be impossible to acquire the manual for this item on line. All of the downloads are shown as "currently unavailable". So here I sit with a useless dongle and still no wireless connection between my cutting edge computer and my equally cutting edge TV. Samsung,If you are going to make these products proprietary then you should at least offer up-to-date manuals and instructions. I note that for 1/4 of the price I can purchase 25' class 2 HDMI cable. So much for wireless. We'll return this part and go hard wired. I'm probably not going to purchase another Samsung TV, and my experience with these products will also prevent my purchasing one of the new Samsung Smartphones. Samsung makes pretty good products and then casts one adrift when it comes to customer service.

      The New Link Stick

          Comments about Samsung LinkStick Wireless LAN Adapter:

          The New Link Stick wasn't quite what I was looking for. I should have did more research to find out what the link would actually do, before assuming the link would do what I wanted it to. I was expecting something like the Roku or Fire Stick. The Link did exactly what it said it would do but it certainly wouldn't do what I wished it to.

                I think this would work well with a real strong wifi signal, but for the signal I had, I couldn't get it to work.

                      Comments about Samsung LinkStick Wireless LAN Adapter:

                      My TV and Home Theater are both Samsung products so the Samsung LAN Adapters are required to connect to my network. I was originally concerned if the adapters were backwards compatable, but that concern was instantly dispelled when I connected the first adapter. They actually exceed my expectations!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      My delivery was prompt, but one of the two adapters I purchased did not have the extension wire. I am not complaining because I only need one of the extension wires.

                          Product works great! Was a little worried that it might be too thick since my television is flush to the wall, but it fit perfectly. Wireless signal is great and with this device I no longer have to have a computer hooked up to the television to watch Netflix. Was up and running in about 5 minutes.

                              This wireless LAN adapter is for a Samsung 2011 Blue Ray player. New players have integrated wireless LAN capability.
                              The only improvement I would have enjoyed is an additional 90 degree adapter. Plugging the LinkStick in the back of the player the LinkStick sits parallel to the ground protruding away from the player.
                              The 90 degree adapter turns the protrusion parallel to the back of the player but still parallel to the ground.
                              I would have preferred to have the LinkStick turn vertical so that it protruded above the top of the player.

                              Service and delivery comments:

                              The purchase process was terrific. I received the item that was advertised, for the advertised price, and at the promised date.
