Top Customer Reviews
** HDMI Cable **
- Hdmi Port - Plugged into the "pc" hdmi slot on my tv (the one with the lowest latency and no overscan issues)
- Lag - mouse moves at pretty much the same speed as the screen, might be a very tiny small amount less responsive.
- Lag - averages 20-30ms
- Resolution - exactly the same as the laptop screen
- Video - plays just like it does on the laptop screen
** Actiontec ScreenBeam **
- Hdmi port - Plugged into same hdmi port, so same environment from the tv
- Lag - lag is noticeable, but not severe. It's unacceptable for using the tv as a regular monitor for doing serious work all day on, and completely unacceptable for gaming, but for it's intended use for me - showing pics, video, and browsing the web with an audience - it would have been fine.
- Lag - averages 111ms-180ms
- Resolution - if you put text on the screen, the resolution is **CLEARLY** less than 1080p. Normal size text is blocky but barely readable. Unusually small text is not readable at all.
- Video - video framerate slows down vs the computer screen, and sometimes there are very minor artifacts. But even at just 720p @ 24fps the video was slightly jerky or looked like there was something a little wrong with it.
* I measured lag in ms by running a millisecond timer, mirroring the screen, then taking a pic with both the laptop screen and the tv monitor in the picture at the same time.Read more ›
First out of the box, I like its compact design and light weight, it is a simple device that does a simple job, shouldn't be very bulky.
Setting it up on the computer is very smooth, follow the instructions in the manul and I had no problem setting it up, some reviewers complained about the 1080 resolution, they apparently don't know how to setup display on computers and were too lazy to read the instructions or look at FAQs, I really hate it when people blame their ignorance on the product. Sound and picture looks fine, again, if you are having problem with it , please go read the FAQ on their support web site, don't be too lazy.
Connecting my Nexus 4 to it was rather hard though, there was no instruction in the manual, and the instruction for Nexus 4 on their support web site is only half finished, it asks users to update the adapter with a new firmware, but the firmware was no where to be found. I finally had to call tech support and it turned out I have to give my email to them and they'll send the new firmware to me in email, that was 10am in the morning and by 10pm at night, I still haven't received it. Fortunately I found it online in a remote corner of the Internet. So they lost a star in my rating for a poor customer support, if you have a link in the manual please make sure that link works and the file is at where the manual said it will be.Read more ›
1. Easily installs once you can find the software online. (i had to wait 20 minutes for the "CS" to get back to me after i found it myself.) You need to go to the product page, then the FAQ section, then the link is hidden in a answer.)
2. Easily reconnects...
3. Mirrors desktop for a while.
2. Does not work with video. I have tried multiple times. 1080p nope, 720p nope, 480p even....nope. It just freezes. Then you have to change the screen resolution for it to unfreeze. I even tried online video.
4. Lag, It is that bad. The more you use it, the longer the lag gets. I am unsure of the receiver but the USB transmitter gets toasty warm.
5. Customer Service. Do not bother. 30 minutes I waited one point and got nothing.
There is one downside though, it does not connect well to my Nexus 4 over Mirracast. I had to install a beta firmware on the device to even get it to connect, and the firmware took hours to track down on the web. After that the connection was poor quality and the sound was off by about <1/2 second. It made it impossible to even play a YouTube video.
Overall 4 because the site did say that support is on the way and the only bugs I found on the device where on a beta firmware, when the release the firmware with official Nexus 4 support, ill update this review.
