    I plan to buy a Miracast receiver in order to give for my Samsung Smart TV ability to show screen and play sound from some smartphones (one powered by Android 4.4 and Lumia 1520 with WP 8.1/Cyan. Can anybody give an advice about an appropriate model?

    I just was going through this same dilemma and decided to buy the HDMI Roku Streaming Stick -- Amazon.com: Roku 3500R Streaming Stick (HDMI): Televisions & Video

    Obviously it is more than just a miracast receiver, but it now has Miracast and it's actually a better price than a lot of the standalone Miracast receivers. It works great with my 1520.

    I would probably go with the Roku stick also. I have a Roku 3 and the Miracast update for it is in "beta". Works well enough.

    Thank you both, guys
    What about games? Streaming speed, lags and so on?

    I just bought a $10 stick from eBay. Tested it few times, it seems to work fine. At least it was easy to connect and everything seemed fine. Thorough testing later when I have time.

    Avoid EZcast like the plague, needs third party software and runs like a one legged blind burglar.
