Tronsmart Introduces EZCast / Miracast Adapters with 802.11ac, Ethernet

Orange Pi Development Boards

EZcast adapters are HDMI sticks supporting Miracast, DLNA, and EZcast protocol that were launched in 2013. I tested a few with Tronsmart T1000 and Widicast EC-E2, and they did the job mostly as advertised, but suffered from lag in Android, mostly affecting games, as well as poor performance with Windows, at least with the firmware I used. Tronsmart has now launched new models including Tronsmart T1000 Plus with 802.11ac WiFi, and Tronsmart T3000 with Ethernet that should fix most of these issues.

Tronsmart T1000 Plus

  • Misc – LED indicators for power and WiFi status

The dongle comes with a cable including 802.11ac module & USB power, as well as a quick start guide. It uses the same EZCast app for Android and iOS as previous models, and sells for $26.99. To enjoy the 802.11ac benefit you’ll obviously need a phone supporting the latest WiFi standard.

I prefer miracast from TVs
EZcast has really bad implementation.

I think chromecast already uses DLNA (universal plug n play) so the extra you’re paying with the tronsmart is for 802.11ac?

I wonder why no one has made a low cost version of the $200 airtame device, which allows client-to-client streaming and screen mirroring/extending among other features.
