EZcast is known as a wireless display dongle that employs Miracast technology & Chromecast is a wireless display dongle produced by Google. Here in this post I am going to offer you a short comparison between these two display dongle.
Ezcast dongle can be purchased at $20 whereas Chromecast will cost $35. However, EZcast employs its own application that supports more than one kind of connections, not restricting to Miracast merely. Apart from Miracast, it also supports Wifi Direct, Airplay, DLNA and screen mirroring. The one that i have checked is Vsmart v5ii employs the EZ Cast dongle. Employing its own Ezcast application, it support resolution up to 1920 x 1080 at 30Hz. Nonetheless, Chromecast feature the same support but many users complain regarding the volatility when it is at that resolution. Both of these dongles updates in regular interval which’s an excellent news for the users.
What are the benefits of EZ CAST compared to Chreomecast dongle?
• More features supported
• More audio and video format supported
• Support direct connection, DLNA, Airplay
Let’s talk about some of the cons:
• Primary setup is a bit tough
• Limited web support eg Flash, not full screen
• More 3rd party apps supported in Chromecast ( Apps: Twitch, Vimeo, SlingTV ,Spotify ..etc ,Games: Angry Birds Friends, Monopoly Here & Now,Driver Speedboat Paradise, etc)
One most crucial note here is the local streaming from your personal gadget (e.g tablet, laptop and smartphone) to the Television. As far as the chromecast setup is concerned, both your device & the data card need to be in the same local network that bridged via router. It does not support direct connection. Wifi EZcast Dongles comes useful in this context particularly you’re traveling & lodging in hotels. Projecting it via the EZcast & EZmirror application is wonderfully easy & it is exceedingly smooth when you’re changing the monitor gadget to your Television.
Probably you may feel i am a bit biased towards EZcast device over Chromecast. In fact, Google is a big company and probably many improvements will come in the future. But for now, EZcast device is clearly a winner, at that price. Users can run EZCast software on an Android phone or tablet or a Windows PC. This lets them choose photos, videos, music, or other content and surf them through their favorite medium.
