Much cheaper than buying a new tv

I love my cromecast. I use it for Netflix, YouTube and even videos already on my PC. I use it from PC , my phone and my nephew streams from his iPad when he's over.

jamais vu de la dompe comme ca

Habitué avec Microsoft wireless display adapter je vais au bestbuy m'en acheter un deuxième pour le travail, le vendeur me dit qu'il ne connait pas ca... okay. Me dit qu'il a pas ca en magasin... okay. Finalement je finis par acheter un chromecast parce que le gars me dit que c'est la meme affaire... Premierement ca prend un setup incroyablement compliqué, il faut connecter le chromecast sur ton Wifi, ensuite downloader l'application google home sur ton telephone, ensuite tu peux juste "caster" des vidéos youtube via google chrome sur ton ordi, et tout s'éteint si tu ferme google chrome, ou tu peux juste "caster" des videos youtube sur ton téléphone... complètement inutile. Belle technologie de baboche.. Avec le microsoft Wireless display adapter tu fait juste cliquer à une place dans windows et ca fait un miroir complet de ton écran d'ordi. Rien à installer, pas de crap de wifi, pas de téléphone, pas de problème.. C'est comme un fil HDMI, mais Wireless. MAGIE C'était ca que je cherchais jsutement!! Là je suis obligé de retourner au cristi de bestbuy à 10km à cause du maudit vendeur incompétent!! MERCI!!

Sound

The sound would work for awhile on 1 port, then would lose the audio. The TV has only 4 ports and lost the audio on every port. And could not disconnect at times without pulling the plug. Since I can,'the pick the star I will give it 2

Good Product

Does what it's supposed to do. I would like to see more compatible apps to use with it. I found an app to use as a browser so I can stream shows from my iPhone/iPad. Very easy to use.

Amazing as expected!

I purchased this product in order to make my old tv have the same features as my smart tv; the capability to stream videos from Youtube or Netflix. And I have to say, I'm really loving this chromecast! It's a cheaper alternative compared to other streaming devices like the apple tv, roku, etc. Its pretty cool that instead of using a remote, I only need to use my phone! it was fairly easy to set up, i had no difficulties setting it up as I only had to plug it to the hdmi and to the usb port. Pros: a cheaper alternative to stream videos easy to set up very small and compact Cons: Haven't found any for now ( I might be too easy to please) but if there are any, ill be sure to update this review

Vow!!! What a surprise!

This tiny thing is really good. I use it with a 1750ac Wifi. Easy to setup. Till now every video I streamed from youtube works perfectly. My smartTV Samsung only has wifi n and the signals (videos) are interrupted frequently, but not with this Chromecast. It is better than what I expected! A really good buy!

Google Chromcast

I love this product. In fact I was able to set up a TV in my daughters room without attaching any cable. This allows her to watch her shows at any given time.

Great product for a great price.

We recently had to buy a new chromecast because we accidentally broke our old one (which could only connect to 2.4 GhZ wireless). Since upgrading to the newer Chromecast model, we've seen a lot less inconsistencies with connecting our devices to the Chromecast. I see some reviews complaining about unreliable signals, but we haven't had any issues. I recommend connecting your chromecast to a 5 GhZ wireless signal if you have it, though we had very few issues with our 2.4 GhZ chromecast. This is a great buy for a great price. If you have a solid wireless/internet connection (we have 50 down/10 up) then you shouldn't have any issues.

Almost perfect.

All-in-all it works very well, loads of app support, however, some apps tend to glitch which in consequence have to be reloaded.

Decent, gets the job (mostly) done

Does a nearly-decent job of sending content from your laptop/device to your TV. Important thing to note: there used to be a setting -- which Google has removed -- where you could throttle down the video quality being cast when sending streaming content from your laptop to your TV. This was important because it will stutter and skip often -- like, really often -- even over a strong wireless connection with a good setup if you're sending HD video from anything that isn't a "Cast-enabled" app. Check the Google forums, it's a problem and they have no plans on fixing this. So, if casting non-Netflix or Youtube streaming content is the main thing you are buying this for, you might want to reconsider. Or at least give it some hard thought and maybe check out a friend's in action first. It's really annoying, tbh. I'm just glad we got this one sale and did not pay full price. You'll be fine if you're Casting through apps, but buyer beware!

Best thing ever!

honestly, this little device is one of the best purchases I have ever made. I got a new TV for Christmas and immediately ordered this online so I could have Netflix in my room. Took me about 5 minutes to set up from my iPhone (and I'm the worst with any technology.... anyone could do this!) and now I can stay up all night binge watching my shows. 10/10!

No use on Rogers internet service

No use on Rogers internet service. You have to hook up your desktop to change the Wi-fi channel every time you want to use the Chromecast. Very time consuming and frustration.

Great product and super easy to set up. I wanted to cast Netflix from my iPad to my TV...took less than 10 minutes to get everything talking to each other.

Google Chromecast

Easy to set up and easy to use. I plugged it into the back of the surround-sound receiver for my big-screen TV. Turned on my PC and did the set-up in 30 seconds. And now I enjoy high-definition classical music concerts whenever I want. Superb product!

Easy inexpensive streaming device

I've always been a fan of chromecast. It's an inexpensive way to basically make a giant TV monitor. I use it for movies (Netflix etc), YouTube, and when I'm looking at things in chrome with someone else... easier for us both to see the screen instead of using my phone! Excellent product, 5 min installation. Always recommend.

Nice product. This is a the second one I bought. The first one, after about a year old stopped working. I don't know why it behaved like this. I just wish the second one to stay longer.

Great, cheap streaming device!

Chromecast is an excellent, cheap way to bridge content from a smart phone or a computer to a TV. - Setup can be a bit tricky, and Chromecast requires a WIFI connection with internet at all times to work. - Android phones seem to be easiest to "cast" to the Chromecast, however, the iPhone also has many apps that work well. - Connectify is a must-have program if you plan to use the Chromecast with a laptop. Connectify allows for a WIFI connection anywhere to be re-broadcast and used with the Chromecast. This is awesome for use away from home, such as in a hotel. - Overall quality of the picture/apps is great. For the price, Chromecast is a no-brainer. I wish it had a built-in battery, so that it didn't need to be connected to a USB power supply, but this is a minor quibble. It would also be nice if the HDMI cord was a bit longer.

Chromecast

Ordered on-line, got the product in two days (fast). Set-up was easier than I thought. All of my wireless devices that have Chrome installed pick up the device and are ready to cast. Full time to set up was 5 min. I did some reading up on the device before purchasing it and looked at you tube videos, so installation was uneventful and unstressfull. I would recomend it to all those users that do not have smart TV's and stream from phones, tablets, and laptops.

Spotty performance

I just threw my Chromecast away after a year. I dealt with the spotty performance by rebooting my router and the Chromecast before each use, and I'd downgrade the streaming resolution. Over the past two months I started spending 10 minutes troubleshooting before I could start watching a show. Good by and good riddance. Two different TVs, two different sources, no improvement.

easy to use

almost too easy. Most of my devices will try to show videos on the device. I had to unplug it in order to limit access. You show movies that you download, but in my experience, you have to run the movies in chrome

WORKS LIKE A CHARM.

Probably the best minimal streaming device I have used. Streams without lag. Has no bells and whistles like apple tv but you don't really need those. I have it plugged in via my xbox one and together they are one solid entertainment system.

Fabulous little gadget

Very small and easy device to connect your all your phone, computer and tv together to stream movie from the computer without extra too. Or watching YouTube while operate on your phone with easy access and quality video. It can be more useful for presentation without sophisticated whirling. Well recommended. Enjoy video not on little screen anymore, but on comfortable TV.

Worth it!

This is my 2nd unit, works awesome for Android devices and Apple. I use it to mainly cast NHL centre Ice games. You can also case from Google Chrome on your PC. Beware, casting not available from Chrome on mobile devices. Dumped my ATV and whole Apple eco system. Best move ever.
