i am truck driver and it has been a hassle to be able to watch movies on my truck tv. i ordered this item and i am able to mirror my samsung edge 7 with no problen to my hd tv. i have a unlimited data plan so whenever i have LTE i am ok image is really hd if the phone signal is weak the image on tv is not great i had it for a week now happy so far hope this help to another buyer
The transmitter will be detected as a WiFi adapter but no driver is available to make this work. The software the manual instructs you to install will not complete installation as it refuses to do so if you are not on Windows 7 or 8. What you really need to make Miracast streaming an option is a WiFi adapter that comes with drivers that support Windows 10. Your graphics card driver will also have to support but the transmit capability really just requires a USB to WiFi adapter. Then you can pair with any Miracast receiver that feeds the images through HDMI to your TV.
It should be simple for ActionTec to make this a working package by providing a Windows 10 driver for the transmitter but they refuse to do so and their Tech Support misleads you to believe that Windows 10 should support the transmitter natively which it doesn't. So, save yourself the bother, get a WiFi adapter for your desktop W10 PC and get any highly rated Miracast receiver and you can accomplish streaming from a desktop PC to your TV. This kit won't do this unless you run an outdated OS.
I've used this a while and really like the product. Remember this is a Personal Area Network type of device (think network). The one nit I have to pick is issues when using this device with a VPN like Cisco Anyconnect. Depending on the VPN settings you may not be able to use this product when connected to the VPN. Seems to work on some but not others. Hasn't been enough of a pain to me to figure out why but you need to be aware this is something that could impact your experience.
Original Review Follows:
Excellent convenient way to add display capabilities to your device. Took out of box, connected the included power dongle, plugged into power outlet , connected via HDMI to monitor and ready to go. So far used on 2 devices without a hitch.
#1 - Lenovo Yoga 720 15" running Windows 10. Easily connected without issue. Provided option to replace laptop display, extend laptop display or duplicate laptop display.
#2 - Samsung Galaxy S4 cell phone. Easily connected using screen mirroring which mirrors the display on the phone. No issues and sound is also passed to the connected device.
Simple to connect and use. More importantly it works as long as your laptop supports Miracast. Older devices may have glitchy compatibility however I'd suspect newer devices with Miracast should not have any issues.
One nit for which I deducted 1 star. When computer display is turned off by Windows 10 the monitor attached to the Actiontec does not go into power save mode. The monitor will remain on at all times. This results in having to manually switch off the monitor when not in use. When the monitor is turned off it automatically disconnects from the computer so that means I have to re-connect when getting back into Windows. Actiontec needs to update its firmware to allow a connected display to go into power saving mode when called for by Windows.
Just remember - when doing the screen share- if anything pops up on your device screen, it will show up on the TV screen too - FOR ALL TO SEE!!! Let's hope they appreciate it :)
Top reviews from other countries
Here’s a list of devices which are NOT compatible
* the Samsung galaxy elite 7 inch tablet
* all Apple devices ( iPad, iPhone, Mac )
* all amazon fire tablets/ devices
While this is advertised as compatible with android devices, you’re better off doing a google search or verify YouTube before purchasing.
If you have a newer Samsung phone this works seamlessly
PC connection with windows 7 and up are also compatible (I tried with windows 7 on an old HP laptop)
Hope this helps
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!
