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!

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!

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.

Versatile & Simple piece of tech with many different uses

We currently use 2 Google Chromecasts; one in the living room and one in the bedroom. They have both been working consistently for the past year. With an increasing number of apps including Chromecast integration in their most current updates, this affordable piece of technology is our go-to for TV shows, films, general videos, music, and photos. Its simplicity and consistent connection to devices it's familiar with relieve the need for an excessive amount of peripherals such as media boxes, Bluray players, etc. With the vast libraries of movies, TV shows, and music on apps such as Spotify, Netflix, and TMN GO, little else is needed for an immersive entertainment experience. I hope to see more streamlined tech like Chromecast from Google in the near future.

Works great with Samsung TV

The Chrome cast works great with both my Samsung and LG TVs we have one on both TVs and the Chromecast works better than the native telecast programs and net casting programs we connect with our desktop computers. We sync the Chromecast with our Samsung Tablets, smartphones and custom built desktops seamlessly. Well worth purchasing the three Chromecasts.

This device only works some of time and not well

It is a real pain to set up and does not work with my Samsung 5s phone well at all. It never transmits the screen onto the tv the way it was advertised. It is a waste of money. You need to disconnect your cable service to make it work unless you have two hdmi ports on your tv.

Easy to use

Took us about 1/2 hour to figure out how to configure it for our laptop and our two Android phones (we're not very tech savvy). Pretty straightforward to use and it syncs to the TV within 2-3 seconds. Quite happy with it =)

Google vs Apple

The product works well if you can get the proper app to broadcast your content. That's the biggest problem. Chrome is the only native browser for internet and most everything else requires a separate app. If you have windows you're luckier because they aren't competing with the tv market yet. Apple in the other hand almost dares you to make a mac work with chrome cast. It can be done and quite successfully but you need patience. Overall the fact you can stream 1080P with another cable running through your house is well worth the effort.

Easy!

This was a breeze to set up and install. I tried it on three different tv's after initial set up and it was seamless on all of them. I also tried running it with my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone and an iPhone 6 - both worked perfectly. Love that you can use the USB port on the tv to power - one less plug to deal with. I also have a Roku streaming stick and considered getting another but loved the Chromecast's ability to use my phone to view games, apps, websites. Plus it won't kill your phone's battery - streamed 2 hours of Netflix with the phone on standby. This device is easy to install and very portable. Great deal for the money.

Great product, a friend told me about it. It easily allowed me to stream my tablet to my tv.

Great product, a friend told me about it. It easily allowed me to stream my tablet to my tv. Now, I can watch youtube videos on my tv instead of the tablet. The only thing that I find annoying is that someone at home can accidentally stream to the tv when I am already streaming something else.There isn't a way to lock a certain device to the chrome cast device.
