Amazon Fire Stick ($39) and Google Chromecast ($30) are much cheaper, can mirror screens of android phone and tablets (not Windows 8.1). However, these devices needs WIFI (internet access), else they do not work.
I connect the Microsoft wireless adapter display (MWAD) with Samsung, Vizio, and Sony TV. They works well, and delivers good video and audio for my phone and computers and tablets.

- Laptops: Dell Inspiron 15 R(windows 8.1), Microsoft Surface
- Android phone: Samsung Galaxy S5.
Microsoft Surface and Samsung Galaxy S5 phone quickly detects and connects to MWAD. Dell laptop detects and connects to MWAD slower than tablets. I watch videos from Youtube from the project screen on the TVs. The video and sound quality is good for all computers, tablets and phone. I tried to edit Facebook files on the mirror screen, it was slow due to video delaying.
