i dont really get the point of them TBH its supposed to be for streaming to your TV but the wireless sucks? and people rec a cable connection at which point it feels like it solves a very weird problem


On the box/in the instructions/on the store page they say 'WIRED CONNECTION RECOMMENDED', but I've heard people with higher-end 5 GHZ routers have had a decent experience. On my ISP provided modem/router, even with the Steam Link set up in an adjacent room, there was noticeable input lag.

I guess the closest experience I've had is the in-home streaming between two PC's and it actually provided a nice experience. That's why I want to buy a Steam Link. Sometimes I want to be on the TV in the front room. That said, it's a bit of a bummer that the Wi-Fi does not provide a similar experience.

Isn't shipping for Steam Link and the controller like $15?

Was going to get a Steam controller on sale about a year back but noped out at the ridiculous shipping fee.

Might depend where you live maybe but when I ordered it the grand total was 13 dollars ish including the link, tax, and shipping.
Drugs are never the answer, unless the question is what isn't the answer.

Shipping was $7.99 when I looked at it. Not paying more than the device for shipping though, f*** that noise.

Well the device is 40 dollars it's just on sale.

Also despite what Amazon has led people to believe shipping is not free. Even if you prime they generally will not ship something that cost five dollars for free.

Bought one when the Autumn Sale was up. Do we get a tracking number whenever it gets shipped out? $7.99 shipping fee seems like 3 business days.
