What are you trying to do with it?

 

There are a few options but unfortunately none are great for gaming/fast response stuff, or syncing audio/video unless you transmit audio as well.

TV in my kitchen, I watch on my laptop now but would like to my 20 Sony monitor on a shelf with LT close by but off my table.  Other half is tired of wires (IE my junk on the table) :tophat:

Not what you,ve asked for (I know nothing of wireless monitors and have doubts about how well they would work) but if the purpose is for viewing streamed media from your PC or Netflix and that type of thing, I'd suggest a SmartTV with wifi support. I got a Samsung 22 inch model which works well. It plays stuff off my PC and NAS and works with Netflix and other services I use like BBC iPlayer.  There's also boxes which add Smart TV capability to non equipped TV's (like Roku) which also connect through WiFi..

Since you're still in the planning stages I'll second jonuk76, go with a display that connects wirelessly to something you can easily set up.  Most of the wireless video solutions I've seen are $150 on up.  Getting a device that already supports a wireless connection is probably the better investment.

Google Chromecast, all you need is to spend $35, an HDMI port, and use Google Chrome on your laptop and you can mirror your Browser on the screen, watch netflix/youtube/hulu/realplayer from your laptop/smartphone/tablet.

 

Basically makes your tv a smart tv but without the price tag.
