    Cant go wrong with this one

    I tried using a 6 ft adapter cable at first because I didn't think a wireless connection from my Surface Pro 3 i5 to my Vizio Smart TV would be sufficient. Well, I quickly learned that a 6 ft adapter cable wasn't sufficient for convenience sake(psh, first world problems). So I returned the Insignia Cable and purchased this Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter for $10 more. Took it home, plugged it into the USB and HDMI ports on my TV, and seamlessly connected my SP3 to the Wireless HDMI Adapter. The convenience was solved immediately, but I still needed to test the connectivity. Fortunately, it quickly became clear that the wireless connection does not decrease the quality of the feed, audio or visual, in any way. Overall, I would highly recommend this product to all future customers. One of my friends actually took my advice, bought one, and couldn't be happier.

    Great for Surface Pro 3, won't work with Galaxy S5

    This adapter works very well with the Surface Pro 3. It is everything I wanted in that regard. However, I have been unsuccessful connected it with my Galaxy S5, which should work with it. I've been searching the web, and can't find much information related to the two. I wish it would work because I'm very happy with the results when connected with my Surface Pro 3. Now, getting hold of this adapter was quite an ordeal. First of all, I spend $1000+ on a Surface Pro 3, and when I ask if they have this adapter, the salesperson tells me that if anything as this even existed (implying it definitely does not), that they certainly would not have it. So, I go home happy with my Surface Pro 3, yet disappointed about the adapter. I begin searching online for it, and wouldn't you know it - Best Buy actually offers the item, and it's in stock and available for store pickup at the very same store I asked about it. That was slightly annoying. I go to the same Best Buy location the next day, and ask to be directed to the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter. The employee brought me to another employee, who was busy with another sale. After several minutes of waiting, the other employee takes my questions, and then informs me that they definitely don't have it because he had looked for one the other day and couldn't find it. I said, are you the one who typically finds these items when ordered for store pickup? He says he isn't, and I politely ask if the employees who do that could look for the item for me. The employee brushes me off and continues with his other, apparently more important, sale. Getting more agitated, the original employee and I head to customer service to ask for actual assistance. When we get there, a severely rude employee tells me, well if he says it doesn't exist then it doesn't exist. Then she continues to lecture me about how even though it says it's in stock, it's possible it was stolen. Basically, I'm treated like I'm an idiot child. I told her it's also possible that just one person might not be able to find it, and perhaps the employees who typically look for these items could likely find it. She doesn't even attempt to assist me, though. She was more content with being right in her own mind. Yay for customer service... Finally, the original employee I asked, who doesn't even work in electronics yet wants to help a customer, gets someone else to look for the adapter. Guess what? They found it...despite all the lectures and brushes to the side from other employees. So, I did end up with this item, which works very well. However, I practically had to force (multiple times) Best Buy's less than personable employees (why are you in customer service if you can't assist people?) to get off their butt and actually look for it. It was ridiculous. On top of all that mess, somehow Best Buy has created two member accounts under the same name and phone number. I am an Elite Rewards member, 1000 rewards points for this purchase did not go onto my Elite account - it went to this other reward account that I didn't even know existed. I would think that when I give the cashier the phone number for my account, and two separate accounts pop up that they would inform me of this. Not at Best Buy - apparently just the bare minimum effort is acceptable here. I am very upset with the way I was treated, and my overall experience with Best Buy has been extremely poor and very unhelpful. I will never trust Best Buy's employees again, and will do my best to stay out of their stores and buy from someone else.

    Best device I added this year!

    My wife and I both have Windows 8.1 notebooks that include the Intel Wireless Display chipset and Samsung Galaxy phones. We screen mirror what is on our phones and notebooks to our TV quite frequently using the Microsoft Wireless Adapter. It is so easy to setup and simple to use. Better than that, it works great! We have a 2010 Sony 60" KDL-EX720 Smart TV. In 2010 this TV did not include wireless network connectivity/Miracast, but it could be added by purchasing $100 wireless adapter. I checked out several alternatives that were less expensive and narrowed it down to three. 1) Purchase a Blu-Ray DVD player with WiFi and Miracast. 2) Purchase Roku or Amazon Live TV and use their screen-mirroring. 3) Purchase the Microsoft Wireless Adapter. My first choice was option 2. I got a great deal on the Amazon Live TV box from Best Buy. I am an Amazon Prime member, so I thought what the heck. Amazon Live TV is super cool and works great, but not to screen mirror with a Windows 8.1 notebook. After installing different wireless network adapter drivers and reading article/forum I could never successfully connect either notebook to the Amazon Live TV screen-mirroring feature. So, onto my second choice. My second choice was option 3. I purchased the Microsoft Wireless adapter. Best choice ever! 1) I opened the box. 2) Plugged the adapter into a free HDMI port and the USB port for power. 3) Changed the TV to the HDMI input. 4) Turned on mirroring on my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and selected the Microsoft adapter and I was screen-mirroring. Easy Squeezy. After the initial setup, connecting is a quick two step process. 1) Change the TV input to the Wireless Adapter. 2) Turn on screen mirroring on your device. There is no navigation through a menu system. Simply change the input and go. The devices we are mirroring are Full HD 1080P. There is minimal lag or distortion in the video and audio quality. We did have one issue connecting my wife's Galaxy S5. It would not connect at first. The phone did not have the latest Android and Verizon software updates. It connected fine after installing all of the updates. This device is a big win and thumbs up from me. Buy it and enjoy it!

    Works great, when it works

    We purchased 4 of these for use in our office conference rooms and shared spaces. When they work they are great. Almost like Airplay. You have to do an initial "pairing" which is easy on a Windows 8.1 device and requires no drivers. But the benefit over an airplay device is that you do not have to connect either the Display Adapter or your computer to a WiFi network, they make a peer to peer connection. You can also connect your computer to your wifi for internet access while using the device, something the cheap Chinese miracast adapters do not let you do. The video quality is good, great for presentations and video. Have not tried gaming yet. The optional Windows 8.1 management software allows you to rename the adapter and scale the display in the event portions are cropped off your TV due to over-scan. However like my experience with most Windows 8.1 things, its a bit buggy. We have 10 identical dell laptops. Two of them connect and disconnect to the adapters perfectly. For a couple of them you have to unpair and re- pair to the adapter every time you want to use it. Considering it took Microsoft 18 months to finally release something like this you'd expect the bugs to be worked out.

    I purchased three of these and could not have been happier, they work amazingly well and even carry audio. Applications stream with no issues what so ever, video has the smallest lag, but I streamed a youtube video and it looked great. My only drawback so far has been that you can only use it with with Windows 10 and not all phones support them, of course that is not the devices fault as it works perfectly as intended with the required devices. I was even able to use it on projector which was pretty cool, and older one so it was not very stable but it definitely works.So if you have a Windows 10 phone and compatible device, then this is the perfect setup for you.

    Good hardware but Windows isn't doing a good job.

    Posted .

    i'm gonna tell you the bad part of using this product first. it is not the hardware itself, but it is windows and the firewall. Many people had hard time connecting the WDA, it is because unlike Android, Windows and antivirus software have firewall. The only solution is disable your firewall each time you connect it with your TV, unless you don't use antivirus program at all. My TV already got a WDA, but it only works with Android and not PCs, so i have to get this to sync flash videos from my PC. I also got the Chromecast, but it doesn't support all the websites and flash video, so this MS WDA is useful for me. after you disable the firewall, everything is simple from this point, you connect it with your PC, and download the MS WDA software from MS store, and do the advance setup. the connection is fast, and very smooth on Android.

    After checking out several of the available products that stream content wirelessly from a computer (notepad, in my case) to a TV, I picked the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter, since it gave me the features I wanted, mainly a mirror of my device's display, at a reasonable price. This product delivers! After a couple of tries to get the two devices communicating, it works flawlessly. I'm quite pleased with this product.

    I wanted to use this with a MS Surface Pro 3. I liked the idea of wireless projection to conference room displays. I had to fiddle with the surface / debug for quite a while to get it to work. Now it's good. Others seem to not have had any problems with their systems. BTW - to make it work on mine - I had to uninstall the display driver, and let Windows reinstall it. To the best of my knowledge - it was the same one after re-installed (same version number, etc). Guess there are reasons why computer tech cartoon people are shown w/ wizard's hats...

    Works seamlessly with all my compatible devices.

    I didn't expect much from such a device since I have a Chromecast and rarely used that. But once I used this, I found out how much more convenient it was to connect and display local content on my TV. I've always used an HDMI to connect my devices. With this, I no longer have to do that to get the same results. Just plug the wireless display adapter into an HDMI port on the TV, plug the usb cable to a usb port on the TV (or to a power source if the TV doesn't have one). Then on your device, just find the wireless display adapter and connect to it. Done. Everything is mirrored from your device onto the TV. This seamlessly with Windows 10 and supported Android 4.4+ devices. The one thing that makes this item different than the Chromecast is that you don't need an internet connection for it to work, whereas the Chromecast requires a wireless connection in order to function. Perfect for traveling to places it's a hassle to connect to the wireless network (e.g. hotels, relatives/friend's place) or even places with limited to no wireless.

    This is a mirror cast device, dissimilar from Chromecast. This is for wifi display mirroring with Android devices and mirroring or extending with Windows wifi display compatible computer systems. With Android, you cannot cast like a chromecast with chromecast compatible apps, you mirror the entire display and the display must remain on. With Windows computers it acts as an additional display that you can mirror or extend to with is the benefit to this over chromecast devices. Also over chromecast it doesn't require to be connected to a wifi network in order to function, it is a direct to device over wifi which makes it faster, not having to go through and access point.

    So I've been looking into how I could display my Surface to other TVs while traveling. I was going to buy the belkin brand and try it but held off once I heard that Microsoft was making their own wireless adapter. I'm so glad that I did. This device works great! Just plug into an available HDMI port on your TV, connect the USB for power and connect to it (after you download the app of course). The app that you have to download appears to run as a service so you don't have to open it to connect to the adapter. Sound gets pushed as well and to me it sounds great. The image looks clean and although there is a slight lag(inevitable), it's not bad enough to bother me. I like that it doesn't need to get connected to the wireless network in order for me to connect to it. The device works so well that when I showed it to some of my friends they bought it from me for an extra $20. So now I'm going to go buy me another. :)

    I travel for business a lot and was looking for a way to watch Netflix and my iTunes movies that are on my Surface on hotel room TVs. This does it with no delay with a great picture! It is just the projection of the display, though, and not the audio, so keep that in mind if you buy it for the same purpose. Great for ppt presentations as well, without needing a hard line connection. Very easy to use, provided you have a screen with both a USB and HDMI connection.

    Great Miracast Device

    |
    |
    Posted .

    I bought this device because I wanted the ability to display content from either my phone or tablet on my television and the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter does just that. It has simple plug-and-play features, so as long as you have an open HDMI port and USB port within about 10 inches of each other you should be good to go. My only complaint is that the USB cable is attached to the HDMI dongle, so if your TV doesn't have a USB port, or the USB port is out of reach, you'll need a full-sized USB extension cable and adapter. Other adapters use a micro-USB port to supply power, so you could easily swap out the cable with a longer one. The HDMI extension cable is a great freebie with the adapter -- without it I would not have been able to use it out of the box with my Samsung TV (the HDMI port is parallel to TV in a recessed area and adapter is slightly too long to fit).

    More Versitile Casting than Chromecast

    |
    Posted .

    This dongle, using Miracast technology, is far better than Chromecast. I tried Chromecast and it worked great for apps on a mobile device that are programmed to support Chromecast but other apps that are not won't cast and neither will your home screen or general display. Your laptop or computer won't cast anything on Chromcast except a tab in a Chrome browser only and even then, if you're casting streaming video from that tab, it is very choppy and garbled. The only thing it casts well are the apps designed to support it. This Microsoft Miracast dongle will cast anything on the display of another device with Miracast technology. And it does it well too. You can open up any browser you chose and stream video and it will play on your TV smoothly and perfectly. You can open any app on your mobile device and it will appear and run on your TV as well. Also, unlike Chromecast, you can choose if you want the dongle to just duplicate your device's screen or act as a second screen/monitor as an extension of your device's main screen. This dongle is just better and more versatile in every way.

    Works great! Make sure to update firmware first!

    Posted .

    Works great with my Surface 3 and Samsung tv! How to connect: One end of the adapter goes into the USB port of your television and the other end to the HDMI port of your television. It is a wireless adapter so nothing needs to be plugged into your computer/tablet. Select the appropriate HDMI input on your television, go to display settings on your computer/tablet, click connect to wireless adapter and select the Microsoft Display Adapter and you are set! IMPORTANT :In order to get the display adapter working flawlessly, without any connectivity issues, please download the Windows Display Adapter App (Win 10) and upgrade the firmware of the adapter. It is very important you do this or you may face connectivity drops or other bugs/issues. TIP: If your display is getting cropped or isn't fitting your television screen, adjust the television display options. I had my Surface 3 resolution set to 1920x1080 as I have a full hd TV, but it was still stretching outside my television display. I changed the display setting on my tv to 'Fit' which fixed the problem.

    Setup was immediate. Plugged into my TV and my Windows 10 Surface Pro found it immediately. Works as advertised, although the range could be better. At 20 or so feet away from the TV, HD video begins to drop some frames and gets intermittently choppy. However, this may be the hardware or just a Miracast platform limitation I generally use Chromecast to stream videos but this fits the bill where Chromecast doesn't support or has performance issues (casting HD video from Chrome for Windows, or casting the desktop from Windows).

    This is a great product for work and play. I use it in the classroom to display music notation software for my music students. It syncs very easily with my laptop, and allows me to show exactly what is on my laptop to a room full of students. It is small and portable. I can use it all day, that easily unhook it and bring it home to stream from hulu, netflix, or online sports. Looks great on my HD TV. Cons: What keeps this from being 5 stars for me is some noticeable lag in cursor movement on the projected screen. It makes a second screen for gaming not practical because it lags. Suggestions for improvement: It would be nice if it was not reliant on a usb port for power. It is annoying to have to plug it into a phone charger for the projector I use in class just to get it to work. It would be much better if it had an alternative for plugging into a power outlet.

    This device is incredibly easy to setup, but depending on the speed/bandwidth of your network you may experience annoying delays in audio or video signal. The delays aren't bad enough or annoying enough for me to give the device back, but I wish it was better at streaming media. For use as a screen duplicate or extender, it is amazing and will be sure to enhance your productivity...
