I received the product in a couple of days, nicely packaged with clear, concise instructions. However, like a lot of other people I found that the device simply wouldn't connect to my Surface. The thing is, I had set up the tablet to have a default user that had enhanced security settings, password protected. Having fiddled around for an hour I thought there must be an easier way, so I simply created a new user account on the Surface, with admin rights, but no password or advanced security.Having done that I retried to connect the adapter, and bingo! It connected immediately. Not only that, but it must have installed the drivers for all users, because once I had it working for the open admin account, it also began to work for the secure account. No more problems at al since then, and I've tried to connect with my phone, and that works too.
As for performance, on my tablet I project to the adapter, using the TV as a 2nd monitor so I can browse in my tablet's screen and watch streamed content on my TV. The whole thing works like a dream, it really is outstanding. We also have an iPad in the house, with AppleTV, and I can say without hesitation that the performance outstrips AppleTV. Audio quality is just fine.
One point I should put here, that might be of use to someone is that I have now moved the adapter so it is no longer connected directly to the TV, but is connected to an HDMI and a USB input on my Yamaha AV receiver. This means that I don't have to faff around with HDMI return from the TV, which tends to be problematic for audio and automated controls from the remote. By doing this I can simply switch to the HDMI channel on the AV receiver, just like switching to my PS3 or cable box. I simply grab my surface, project to the adapter and it's off and running.
Quite frankly, even despite the initial headache with the set set up, I have to give this product 5 stars because it's superior to anything else I've tried.
Update 6 May 2017- resolved the issue after some searching and trial and error by enabling display adapters shown in the Device Manager list which had somehow become disabled. I assume the Windows updates were the culprit but it shouldn't be necessary for users to have to repair settings.
There is still, on occasions, a noticeable lag in the lip Synch but of course that could be just my setup/ service rather than the device itself.
The product does tend to heat up quite a bit and will disconnect every few hours, which can be a bit annoying.
The video stream does not lag too noticeably in most cases. Watching movies through it is generally fine, though some flash players will show a bit of difficulty.
The quality of the image will depend on the power of your device you're streaming from so bear this in mind if you're using an older laptop or desktop.
It has become a staple in my life and largely replaced my Chromecast. I doubt that the disconnects could be fixed by a firmware update and I hope that it is not due to overheating which may lessen the lifespan of the device.
I'd recommend - if you're looking to by this product - to buy the latest version.
Now I have used this on Windows 8.1 and 10 technical preview on a Surface Pro 3 and with a Lumina 1520 running both WP8.1 and WP10.
First the connection speed is excellent on every device used and with both a HD NEC projector together and a Sony HDTV, device gets a little warm in use so I unplug it when I know its going to be a while until its next use. The range of connection is good, have been fully across my classroom which is 30ft and have it working. YouTube plays without any errors or delay with good audio.
The screen resolution from the Lumina was easily matched by both the projector and the TV with brilliant colour and sound reproduction, YouTube played full screen both, being 15ft across on the projector! The resolution of the SP3 on WIndows 8.1 proved tricky, the App and Share options were hopeless BUT going into the Display option (right hand click on desktop) proved more useful. I could select the correct resolution for each screen, the SP3s and the TV/Projector for optimal use. Settings seemed to have saved.
After the upgrade to Windows 10 I had no issues using the quick connect option in the desktop and tablet modes, resolution was perfect without any issues or need to change things manually.
Very good product, can now do PowerPoint from my Lumina 1520 to my class without the need for the SP3 or desktop, great seeing as I use two different classrooms and use it at home!
