Really depends on how and where you want to use it. For home use, either one probably be OK. I don't think you can mirror with Chromecast (not sure about Miracast). Also, I've heard that results sometimes vary; some people have complained about audio delays with Miracast.

If you want to use your Android device to watch video somewhere other than at home (say, at a motel), Chromecast will probably not work because of the types of networks available at hotels. Miracast might work, but you would not be able to connect to the hotel's wi-fi network while using it.

Personally, I have a Xbox setup for streaming video at home that works great, so I mainly use my Android stuff while in hotels. For me, the best bet is a Slimport adapter. This will give you high quality video and will let you stream from a hotel wi-fi network or using 4G. Anything that you watch on your phone, you can watch using a Slimport adapter.

Unfortunately, for those of us in the UK, Chromecast is not yet (officially) an option...

From my understanding, EZCast will mirror anything displayed on the source device to the TV but Chromecast is limited to specific apps. Is this correct?

I've just read this article which explains the differences:

I think I would go with Chromecast. Although I do have PS3 as my media streamer.
