Video Wireless Display Adapters (Miracast)

With all of the confusion regarding Miracast adapters (especially the Netgear PTV3000) I thought I'd try to point people in the right direction.
First thing's first, the Netgear PTV3000 does NOT work. It is not certified and has absolutely no connectivity out of the box. It can be flashed
with an experimental firmware to gain crappy functionality but will not work properly until an official update is released.


Edit: The Netgear PTV3000 IS now certified and works great! It's also cheaper than most and is the only stand alone Miracast adapter that can be purchased at Best Buy (or any other offline store for that matter).

So rather than waste your money on a Netgear adapter (like I did) you could buy yourself an Actiontec ScreenBeam which I have confirmed
not only works with the N4 but works great! And if you're not a big fan of Actiontec devices, here is a direct link to the Wi-Fi Alliances list of

Official Miracast Certified Recievers

which are certified (imagine that) to work with the Nexus 4.

Not that I don't believe you, but who/how did you confirm the ActionTec works?

I'm looking for some anecdotal reviews and opinions of it. Thanks.

Looks like it's not out yet. So the OP is either 1. speculating based on the certification (from just 9 days ago). Or 2. Has some sort of inside connection to get one before they have even gone up for sale.

Guessing it's 1.

This isn't the same product that's Miracast certified... Looks the same, but different model numbers.

Or 3, they have been up for sale on Amazon for a week now but are currently sold out. (seems par for the course with anything related to the N4) Fortunately a friend of mine got one before they sold out. Tested and confirmed working with his Nexus 4.
And FYI this also comes with a little USB dongle that you can plug into any computer to make it Miracast enabled. We tried it with an AMD computer running a Nvidia GPU and it works great!
