Best Buy's Rocketfish brand is typically offered as a less expensive alternative for home theater and computer cables.  If you've bought any sizable piece of hardware from the huge electronics chain and managed to get out without buying Monster cables, you've likely been proffered the cheaper Rocketfish cabling.  Best Buy appears to be changing things up a bit with the Rocketfish brand though, as they're one of few companies to release a wireless HDMI solution.

Admittedly, it's not entirely impressive.  For the $600 price, you get a unit that sends a single 1080p video signal to a source up to thirty-two feet away.  It's compatible with 60fps, and 24fps signals and up to a 120hz screen refresh rate.  The Rocketfish WirelessHD Adapter also has support for Deep Color and 7.1 channel audio.

While relatively low in price for a wireless HDMI solution, it's a bit barren in features.  For only $200 more, the Philips Wireless HDTV Link offers a seventy-five foot range with the same picture quality.  It also features two HDMI connections and two component connections for a total of four signals streaming across the room, rather than only one
