Couldn't be happier! I was worried that my old 7 inch Asus android tablet (running android 4.02) would not be able to miracast to my 23 inch wall-mounted monitor across the room (18 feet distance). To my amazement, however, literally within five minutes of opening the box and plugging the cables together, it was working perfectly! Absolutely a wonderful experience! Before ordering this I also compared other dongles promising miracast android connectivity, but the thing that ultimately convinced me to settle on the Actiontec ScreenBeam Mini 2, is the apparent stability of the company itself. They have a full-blown website, and obvious customer service and technical support options after the sale. Nothing in Chinese either! So, I'm very happy I paid extra to get this adapter. It has already saved me a whole bunch of grief (absolutely NO PROBLEM CONNECTING, and will be a good long-term investment because the company is US-based apparently and I suspect will be happy to stand behind the product, based on other customer reviews. Also Actiontec has LEGIBLE (BIG PRINT) PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS (vs the little, microscopic-print printed "PigeonEnglish" instructions that come with other cheap-0 electronics I;ve bought in the past. WELL DONE ACTIONTEC! You've got a customer for life! Very happy I got this!
Highly recommend. Super product. Truly plug and play. Easy to setup and use, and no glitches in the last month, and I have used it lots when casting to my TVs with HDMI, from my older Samsung phone and new Samsung Tablet or older laptops that have WIDI. It will be great for using while travelling while abroad.
I have an older Miracast that I bought 5 years ago and thought that was OK but this is light years better and more reliable. 2 weeks before I bought this, I bought a Chromecast on my travels. I found out the hard way that a Chromecast works well as long as you have a private/home network, but is really useless for the traveller who only has access to a hotel network. I then tried a MHL wired adapter, and it works well, but sucks the life out of my phone.
The Miracst works even better than my Kodi box to receive a cast screen.
Cuando llego me sorprendí bastantes al abrirlo parecía un producto calidad premiun super caro pues la caja y como estaba me dejo sorprendido. Y así es calidad premiun para mi. Lo e probado en mi teléfono y en una laptop y funciono sin problemas prácticamente sin latencia. También lo que me gusto es que viene con un cargador usb por si tu Tv no tiene obviamente una entrada usb para darle energía al aparatito
Sin duda vale la pena el envió llego a tiempo y en buen estado
Excellent Miracast dongle! It simply works as soon as you plug it in and enable mirroring on your device. Latency is not bad but it's not suitable for real-time precision gaming. This is not a failing of the Screenbeam but rather the Miracast protocol. Picture and video quality look great. The antenna is built into the unit so you don't need to carry around a proprietary cable while you're on the go, any ubiquitous micro USB cable will work.
Forget Chromecast, get one of these babies and do true screen mirroring. Just make sure your device supports Miracast before purchasing this.
Connects easy, virtually effortless setup, streams 1080p video from my S7 with no lag whatsoever. Widi or miracast streaming does cause your phone to run hot if you are streaming a tv show or movie but that isn't an issue with screenbeam, it is a problem with the phone/technology in general because the phone's screen has to remain on the whole time.
This is absolutely a great product it allows you to cast any cell phone with the ability former cast and if anyone has desktop modes on their cell phone like Huawei mate 20 Pro or Samsung Galaxy 10 this is perfect for you realistically all you need to take for display purposes
I use this for demo purposes of what a good cell phone and tablet or Android box can do just link my cell phone to it no Wi-fi needed no Bluetooth needed just plug it into an HDMI port add power you're done
Works as advertised with my Samsung tablet (Android 7.0). After much slogging, I have found only one Miracast app that works on my older smartphone running Android 4.2, though it's not my main source of content by any means. It can also be used with HDMI inputs on an A/V receiver. This is handy for streaming from music players if the receiver is not DLNA/UPnP/Airplay equipped. Ultimately, not requiring to join a WiFi Network was the deal-clincher for me.
A generous 1.5m USB cord is included with the power supply. An additional 35cm HDMI extension cord is provided for awkward to reach, or limited clearance to, HDMI inputs; a thoughtful addition to the package as the unit is considerably longer than Miracast/Chromecast dongles.
Great seller! Very easy to install, no configuration, only follow instruction to connect and voilà ! Was able to easily connect with my Samsung Galaxy A5 phone and also with my 2015 HP Windows 10 laptop and cast downloaded Prime and Netflix movies. No need for my home WiFi and internet. Works also with Prime and Netflix internetvstreaming. Great resolution quality. Did experiment a few lags during movie playback bot nothing to worry about. Would recommend!
I have tried other ways to cast to a projector for both home and business use and this thing is the best! Presentor sticks and Chromecast required wifi networks to be ever-present. Pairing devices takes a long time and the connection is not very stable even with Chromecast ultra. This device is none of that. Just plug it in, press WINDOWS+K on the keyboard, click and your image shows up on the desired TV/projector. You can even cast from one room to another. The frame rate is excellent, and the signal quality is 1080p.
