In general, Chromecast works very well. I don't have any problems with lag, but that will depend on what you're streaming and the quality of your connection. The main problem with Chromecast is that it doesn't usually work in situations where you have internet through a wi-fi hotspot, e.g. in a hotel room. In those cases, the tablet or phone is generally walled off from the Chromecast device and they can't see each other. In addition, the Chromecast doesn't have the ability to work with a wifi signon through a web page. In those situations, your best bet is to use an MHL adapter.
There are ways to make a Chromecast work in a hotel, but they are complicated and will require a travel router to provide the wifi connection.
