In our previous unboxing video at our sister site, MyNokiaBlog, we showed users how to set up and connect their Windows Phone to the Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter (WDA). Today I would like to demonstrate how you can connect your Windows 8.x tablet to the WDA.
Once you have connected the WDA to your HDMI-equipped TV or monitor, it is easy to connect your Windows tablet to the WDA and then project your content to a bigger screen.
Without further ado, here is the How-To video from MyNokiaBlog:
The Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter works with Windows 8.x, Android and Windows Phone devices that have the required chipsets and firmware to support Miracast and other Micracast Certified devices. Pairing my Nexus 5 to the WDA and playing Real Racing 3 and my Lumia 1520 and Riptide GP2 was a breeze and an overall pleasant experience but projecting my Dell Venue 8 Pro to a 50 inch display was purely magical.
Here is a promo video from Microsoft to give us some ideas on how to make the best use of the WDA.
My only complaint is that the WDA is expensive at $60 (ED. nearly $70 after taxes). It works so well that I want more than one in the house but that would mean I would need to spend nearly $300 for
only 3 4 WDAs.
Do you use any Miracast Wireless Display adapters with any of your devices? If so, what is your favorite Miracast device and what OS do you use it with? How about the price of the WDA compared to other screen sharing devices and competing technologies?
Thank you for visiting GeekOnGadgets and have a great day,
