Summary: So you've purchased an HTC One series phone after reading our reviews, and now you’re looking for the perfect accessory to complement your new device. HTC thinks it has the answer with the Media Link HD, a minuscule streamer that connects to your TV over HDMI and lets you wirelessly push whatever is on your smartphone’s display to that big screen in your living room.
Pros: Small, portable design, Very simple and fast setup, Works with YouTube
Cons: Unreliable video playback, No 1080p, Only works with One X, One S, Evo 4G LTE, Droid Incredible 4G LTE, Poor third-party app performance
Excerpt: HTC's Media Link HD is a great idea. Now HTC just needs to make it work. Today's smartphones are powerful video players, but it's usually too difficult to get that video onto a big screen. Apple leads the way with AirPlay, although that requires the gigantic $99 dongle known as the Apple TV (4 stars).
Excerpt: The HTC Media Link is a tiny box with two small outputs. What it does is fairly magical and quite cool. Plugging it together is simple enough. A familiar miniUSB charging plug goes into one hole, a miniHDMI plug in the other. After hooking the HDMI into your TV you’re on – the HTC “Quietly Brilliant” logo appears and you’re met with a soft coloured home screen.
