    Hi,

    not sure if this is the right place, in case please move this to the correct sub-forum

    Microsoft Canada is selling ScreenBeam Mini2 Continuum for 60$ (20$ off)

    http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=PE-zsRwP

    As far as I have understood this device will allow to use Continuum like the regular Microsoft Display Adapter, but in addition will also allow to plug one or more USB devices (like keyboard and mouse)



    (it's not in english, but you can see how it works)

    Think it's just a Miracast receiver like the Microsoft Display Adaptor. Nothing on USB on the website and I have no idea how that might work wirelessly either.

    yes, it is a Miracast receiver, but it allows you to connect a USB device (Microsoft Display Adaptor does not do that)

    As far as I have understood there is a Y usb cable that allows to power up the device AND plug in a USB device (I have read on amazon even a USB HUB). You can see that in the video I have posted in my previous message where a USB wireless dongle is used to connect both a Microsoft keyboard and mouse

    it was also indicated in a previous discussion

    from another article the Actiontec Screenbeam Pro (so another product from the same brand) seems to have latency on the same level of Microsoft Display adaptor
