Good replacement sensor bar – Infrared Sensor Bar for Wii Reviews

posted by lathans1 on 01/04/2008 Certified Owner

Pros:
Works just like the original sensor bar. Looks about the same. Comes with double sided tape underneath to stick it on the top of your TV like the original one.
Also comes with a stand.
Cons:
..but does not look exactly the same. The back of this one is curved, while the original sensor bar is flat. No biggie, though.
Other:
Since a Wii sensor bar is not actually sensing anything, but just emitting two infrared reference points to be seen by the infrared camera in front of the Wii Remote, it does not really need to be plugged into the Wii. You can feed this with any 7-12v DC source, so you can place it away from your Wii, like on a projector screen in the other side of the room.
Bottomline:
Buy this if you want a wired replacement for your original Nintendo Wii Sensor bar, or if you just needed an extra one, so you don't have to use time to remove and replace your sensor bar in your perfect setting on your tv or projector setup :)
