Rated 1 out of 5Â by TJRB Not worth the free price
If you're on AT&T forget using this device unless you also have a data plan that allows tethering. The media link connects to the phone over household Wifi, but AT&T phones view this as data sharing and won't allow you to connect.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by audi101 Excellent device after update
Purchased the HTC One preorder and got this free with it. Works great now after recent update that fixed the hotspot issue.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by kdub1969 Don't waste your money.
I originally bought the HTC media link($75+) for the soul purpose to watch Breaking Bad on my television thru my HTC EVO 4G LTE which I bought on Google movies/television. That has been several months ago and to this day I am still unable to use the media link for which I bought it.
I researched all possible solutions and performed all fixes suggested, to no avail. Call and spoke with Google which told me they were sorry for the trouble I was having and issued me a refund for my purchase of Breaking Bad. Apparently its a compatibility issue between Google and HTC.....that remains unsolved.
If that weren't enough, since I've had the media link I've also discovered most of the videos on YouTube will not play as well as other video sites not having any sound.
My advice to anyone considering buying the HTC Media Link would be DON'T DO IT! Its like putting a match to $75+
Absolutely useless waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by KAM2013 It is very handy.
I felt I do really needed something like that, so, I bought one. now, in my university and my work place use it so much. it is very handy, you can use your cell-phone while you are using it.
Why Not? It is a good idea.
I hope there would be more and more of these practical gadgets in the future. (Advanced one)
Good job! Also if you design new smart TVs may be we do not need to buy these things in the future.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by mr2ghost Not a good product for ATT customers
If you are on an ATT plan, the device is not workable unless you have a tethering plan. There is nothing in the manual stating that you need this plan. So the device is useless, unless you pay and extra 20.00 per month for tethering.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by loycey AT&T/ htc Media Link
Can't link up HTC1 w/ Media link, unless I "upgrade" from our grandfathered unlimited data package to the $20 per month 5GB's data plan....ummm.... What? The 1st AT&T rep is the one who stated this. However, the tech support was awesome, and stated that a "fix" is in the works, and in a few days or so we'd be learning from HTC what that would be. Oh, and to definently NOT "upgrade" our plan.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Benjaminsfate Great to use
It's the same as Google Chromecast but more early. It's useful for me to watch videos from my phone to TV.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JackB Very nice!
The device worked out of the box. We use it with the HTC One.
Can play movies and still use phone for other things.
Photos and Video clips can be shown on the 55" Samsung LED TV.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Daniel2336543613216456513 Faked screen mirroring
This device is supposed to mirror your HTC phone's display. But it is not a real mirroring when playing media. It actually streams the media content rather than duplicating what is being displayed on the phone display. As a drawback you won't be able to cast protected contents to your TV. For example when you try to cast your google play movies or musics to your TV it failes. So it is totally useless especially if your TV already supports DLNA. Because even without this device you can send your photos and videos to your TV via DLNA.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by pieeater Works perfectly really useful
Got it free with my htc one so great value, worked straight out of the box. Great for viewing video and pictures plus useful for viewing apps and web. Really small so just sticks to the back of the tv and ready to use with a push of a button. Better than expected and excellent quality.
