Can someone tell me the major differences between the allshare cast hub and chromcast.
Also maybe your opinions, pros and cons.

They aren't directly comparable in my opinion, and I have both.
Allshare Cast mirrors your screen on the TV. The upside of this is that most apps and content should just work. The downside is that you can't do something else on your phone, whilst a video is streaming onto your TV.
The Chromecast is essentially a complete separate content receiver, so if you are in say the Netflix app on your phone, you can choose to stream the content to the Chromecast but once it has done this you can switch away and do something else on your phone. The downside of this approach is that it only works on a handful of apps.
I have uses for both, but if I had to choose one only, I would choose the Allshare Cast because ultimately it is more flexible.
