issues. Among the most recommended brand is Netgear Push2TV Wireless Display
HDMI Adapter with Miracast. This adapter is known to work well with Samsung
Galaxy S4 screen mirroring.

Samsung AllShare Cast Hub – It’s exclusively
designed for use on Samsung devices, and works great for GS4 screen mirroring.
No configurations needed.

personal cloud (1TB) embedded with many features including screen mirroring.

share GS4 contents (videos, music, and photos). It can also be used as a media
player for your television.

Note: Not all Galaxy smartphones and tablets
are supported by HomeSync.
