Performance
Steam Link is designed to take advantage of the horsepower you already have in your home, streaming from your current gaming computer by mirroring its experience to your TV. Video and audio data is sent from your computer to the Steam Link, while your controller input is sent back in real time. Virtually every game that your computer runs can be played on your TV using Steam Link.

Damn, thought this was cheap at £30.

Missed it when on offer direct from steam. Ordered, won't be delivered in time for Christmas but happy to wait.

Anyone know how good this is at streaming 1080p??

Also worth noting the steam controller is £27.99 from GAME - difficult to find cheaper and just ordered one myself!

Tempting - I suppose I can leave my laptop upstairs and play games off it just by connecting this to the telly?

Grab it great piece of kit.

As I leave my pc on all the time for Plex anyway, this is just a steal to me.

It means I can play all my emulated games downstairs with the nipper! None of this modern rubbish with no point to completion. All about mario, banjo kazooie and pokemon snap!

I was suprised at how well this works, even on wifi for me it was great

i keep considering this but unsure on its advantage since the pc will be on and running it anyway...so the pc is not usable by someone else and im using the tv as well so no one can use that

Cex have dropped their buy/sell price too, I'd imagine they've had an influx of them since the last £15 deal from Game.

Good price, might get one to keep this time.
Are they releasing another model or have these just sold poorly?

Wifi on this is rubbish, unless you are fine with downgraded image quality and lag..

It's really good so long as you have a decent network connection. I use it with some 1.2Gb Netgear powerline adapters and I get very good quality and very little artefacting.

Great product, I used to stream to my Nvidia Shield TV, but this is just more reliable and easier to get working. It streams 1080p fine over wired gigabit. I've used a mixture of xbox 360 wired controllers, wireless with a dongle, xbox one S controller over bluetooth, get the beta build to use the latter without issues. It's also built and packaged really well a quality item. Bought a second for upstairs.

thank good cex dropped the price cause people like Tehran will by millions more!! selfish people

If you have a laptop you can stream games from your gaming PC to it just like the Steam Link if you wanted to avoid using the TV

Heat! Bought. Thank you.

Really tempted to get this as a stocking filler to myself.

what's the latency like? i'm guessing it's not great for online games

Purchased thanks Op

No way to make this output 4k I suppose?

Thanks OP! This is madness for the price! ordered.

I'm having trouble configuring a DS3 to work properly with it. Anyone know how to assign the buttons correctly?

Another £45 down on stuff I didn't realise I needed until Hotukdeals told me...

Does this still work if your PC is off? Or does the PC need to be on for this to play games? Like can I play one game on my PC while someone else plays another on the TV through this?

It streams games from your PC, so yes it does need to be on.

Steam had it for sale recently at the same price, but with 7.40 delivery. Thought £23.39 was still a great deal because I didn't think Game would ever stock it again let alone for that price!

Ordered - thanks OP

Great device via an ethernet cable/powerline adaptor.

I certainly wouldn't use it for something like Rocket League or anything requiring instant reactions.
I've got a hardwired network between my PC and Shield TV, although the latency is bearable it's simply too high for serious play.

Price for this is great though, give it a go!

​It's very good with gigabit ethernet, in the stream link settings you have fast balanced or beautiful for steam settings

Damn, a day before pay day

Steam controller and official case £27 also!

Brilliant, missed it on Black Friday week. Thanks.

Play rocket league regularly on it with no latency issues.

ordered cheers. Game kept on refusing the sale when i tried to get it delivered to the nearest store (fraud), but was happy to let it go when I had it delivered to the house. Go figure.

mines fine using homeplugs or even the wifi black ops 3 , rocket league etc i get no lag or anything and hold my own as good as if on the pc. thats even on the highest settings. ive seen others with issues as well but i know it works fine for many like myself as well at this price its worth trying if you think you would use it. sadly mine doesnt get enough use

1 drill.
Upto 15M of HDMI, and USB cable/repeaters.

No performance impact on host or network.
No compatibility issues.
No additional latency.
Lower power usage.

Hot for the price, but it's a cludge product IMHO.
