ELEGIANT Miracast Dongle : Great addition to my projector

Seller is very polite and fast delivery.

The miracast dongle is much smaller and discreet than the pictures suggest, but don’t let the small size fool you, as miracast is certainly no lightweight offering by any stretch of the imagination. Setting up the dongle is quite straightforward. The physical cabled connection to dongle is via the hmdi supplied. Powered via a mini usb to usb connector (also supplied) in my set up i’ve plugged the full sized usb end into one of the two usb slots on my projector. Once the input source is selected just follow the on-screen instructions and password to connect wirelessly to the miracast device. To create a bridge between to your home wifi network and the miracast use any browser to visit the units ip address shown on the screen. Once again use the password provided. Please note: for some reason the ip address timed out when i attempted it on an android device. You don’t get this error if you enter the ip address when connected on an apple device or non mobile device. So if you get an error message or a notification that it’s taking to long try again on a non android device.

I can use my phone and cast my screen, watch movies and anything from my phone to my tv. The connection is great, really works as expected.

I bought this because i needed a way to use my projector without a long cable from my laptop to the projector causing a trip hazard. I have tested it on my tv and it works great, the setup is pretty self explanatory, the instructions and passwords come up on the screen. As you can see from my pictures the resolution is pretty good, i am using it as a second screen in powerpoint so i can still see my course notes on my laptop. I have not tried it with a hd film but i do have some videos in my presentations and they all present well with no lag. The dongle comes with a usb cable for power a flat hd video cable and 1.

This little equipment is small and portable. Especially fit for the traveler. I use it to connect my phone or pc to the projector. It is difficultl to set up and operate. But it provides the good quality stream.

Received this yesterday as a bit of a ‘gamble’ – i didn’t really want to go and spend £80 for another apple tv for a spare room. This little gadget though has provided just what i neededit works by connecting into a hdmi and a usb port in the back of the tv (both cables supplied)after connecting it up to the wifi (easy instructions) just press mirroring on the phone and jobs a good onei would recommend havin a good wireless connection (mine isn’t great in the spare room as it’s a bit far from the router) but when i tried it downstairs it flowed perfectly. But even with the connection it still does everything i need it tograb a bargain.

Easy to install, verry good.

  1. Easy to connect to, but image quality isnt always great and sometimes was pretty bad, audio also does lag slightly behind image but not always that noticeable. Depending on what used for though this could do the trick, but wasnt 100% what i was looking for.

    Got this so i could mirror my iphone to my tv. Got it set up really quickly and easily. Once playing videos on my iphone they were very jerky on the television. My iphone was right next to the dongle so it wasn’t a distance issue. I tried powering the dongle through both the tv as well as the mains and neither of these made a difference – still a very jerky picture. Returned to amazon the same day as it arrived as it is clearly not fit for mirroring an iphone (i have the 8 plus so it’s not even a particularly old iphone with sloww processors).

    I guess the price says it all. The image quality will want you to put on a pair of spectacles.
