I got this for $15 during the Steam Summer sale and it is well worth that! I only have access to setting this up via a WiFi connection, and while that is not ideal for all games, it is working fine on the games I am using it for.. Keep in mind, this does NOT run games.. it streams them from your computer! If your computer is slow with games, this probably won’t work very well..
I am using it to play the following games and types of games without any issues
1.) Older PC games
2.) Graphic Novels (Anime, Life is Strange, that type of stuff)
3.) Older XBox Games (Fabel Anniversary, Half Life, Games like that)
For those games it works GREAT over WiFi! I am also playing some newer games with it, without any issues but I do turn graphics down on those games so it streams better..
I also have it set at 720P which helps streaming over WiFi
Keep in mind, I am using a very high quality 5ghz router which helps the streaming significantly..
1.) Very easy setup! Basically, when I plugged it in, and sign into my network it found my games and my computer.. super easy!
2.) Works very well with the steam controller!
3.) Includes everything you need (HDMI, Cat5, Power Adapter)
4.) Works well with steam controller and Bluetooth controller’s (keep in mind, a controller is not included)
1.) Some games on steam aren’t designed to use with controllers.. I find those games sometimes have issues using steam link.. basically I lost sync with my controller at times.. This doesn’t happen on games that are designed to work with controllers
2.) While a wired network is probably best, a high quality wireless network works fine on most games
Overall: I never wanted to pay full price for this, knowing I didn’t have good access to a wired network, but for the price I paid, I am very happy with it! It’s working well for my needs, my games, and my setup.. With that being said, knowing it works for me, I’d happily pay full price for this.
