Conclusion:

This little gadget impressed me; I remember when I first used an ATI All-in-Wonder, it was a 9600 series. I was extremely impressed with its performance. I never would have thought that technology would get so compact so quickly. The Diamond Multimedia USB ATI TV Wonder HD750 packs some serious punch and has an insane amount of functionality when you couple it with the impressive software package that is included. This is a great compact setup for anyone on the go that wants to use their laptop to get caught up on current events without the need for an internet connection. I can see this being the perfect device for dorm use where having a HTPC or TV setup is out of the question due to space issues. With this little fella you can use your laptop for all your media needs including hooking other devices up to it. Don't think this device is only good for laptops if you are looking for a top notch device for media for your htpc or desktop this is the perfect choice for its price point.

Would I recommend this product? Yup, I am an advocate for this little bit of technology, if you are in the market for an awesome htpc experience you can take on the road then the Diamond Multimedia USB ATI TV Wonder HD750 is the best choice for you.

Pros:

  •  Price
  • Fully Functional
  • Very Compact
  • Great Encoding
  • Very User Friendly Software Interface

Cons:

  •  None I can Think of
