Simple to use

I had this up and running in 15 minutes. No probs streaming Netflix, Youtube, Facebook vids, camera roll photos, and Spotify from my phone. Additional devices worked with the Chromecast with no additional setup required. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Love my Chromecast!

I purchased a Chromecast on sale a couple weeks ago. I had been meaning to purchase one for awhile, as our new computer (a Chromebook) doesn't have an HDMI port for watching Crave TV, Youtube, etc. on our TV. Rather than buying an adapter, it seemed to make sense to try a Chromecast. I am glad I did. I did run into a small problem with set up. It froze during setup, but after Googling the issue was quickly able to get it to work (just needed to unplug it and plug it back in). I am removing one star for that reason. Otherwise, it works great with our Chromebook. Love that I can still web surf while casting a show, or even close the Chromebook and it will still cast. We usually watch Netflix on our old NIntendo Wii, but using the Chromecast is nicer. Our internet connection is not particularly fast, but other than on one occasion have not experienced buffering issues or significant delays (just a few seconds to start each video).

Good product

After setup finished, it works fine so far. A trick, when first time inputed password of Wifi, it took a very long time to try to login but failed. Power off and on the Chromecast again, it connected to Wifi immediately.

Lenteur extrême

Le chromecast ne fonctionne pas correctement. Je ne suis pas en mesure d'ouvrir les vidéos, le lag est trop extrême. Quand je vais sur CTV, il demande une application, que je ne peux avoir qu'avec un mobile. Je suis très déçue de mon achat.

Super easy setup, worked right away. No issues with buffering etc, totally worth the money!

Great gadget, I love it

Set up took few minutes, it was super easy. I use it to watch Netflix, Youtube, my photos and stream from laptop as I don't have cable. I was waiting couple months hoping it would go on sale, but never does. Worth every penny though.

Really Good Device

I replaced the Roku device I purchased with this Chromecast after finding out the Roku did not provide access to WWE Network. I found the Chromecast easy to install and setup. Streaming from my tablet is quite easy. One feature I would like to see is controlling the quality of video. Currently the Chromecast will display in the maximum video quality possible which may or may not have been the cause of the stuttering I experienced during last night live stream of WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

Gen 2 Chromecast

Easy setup with iPad mini 4 and older 1080p HDTV. Netflix started from Google Home app. Lots of casting apps available. Streaming might be better with fiber optic cable modem. Using Bell landline and Bell 1000 router. Turn a tablet into a streaming device.

It meets my expectation

Bought it today, easy set up, I connected it to a projector, can be controlled from phone, PC. And can play both Network movies like YouTube and local movies. Overall it's easy to use, and meet all my expectations.

not a bad product if you can wait for the setup

Got this to watch netflix and youtube. its pretty good quality for that price. only problem is the setup. it took me around 3 hours to setup this thing and i got internet 150. otherwise no complaints after once its been setup.

Easy set-up, GREAT video quality

Got this to watch the Olympics, Crave, Netflix (I don't have cable), and I'm entirely satisfied. The setup took no more than a few minutes, and I was watching downhill skiing. I was going to get the more expensive version but when I got to the store and asked about the differences between them, the clerk suggested this one would do everything I need it to. I love that it takes the feed directly from the internet so I can close my phone after I've set up the videocast. The quality seems as good as though I were watching directly from cable. I have high speed fiber Internet service so the streaming is flawless (can't comment what it would be like on a slower service). It's a win. Very happy with my purchase and I highly recommend it.

got it to work

I just wanted to provide an update in case it helps someone else. As I stated in my previous review, I had a very hard time getting screen casting to work, when I would go to the Home app and connect to Chromecast it would disconnect right away (according to my assistant Google, a common problem). One of the requirements to make Chromecast Screen Cast work is you have to give Google Play Services access to the Microphone, which I had before installing Chromecast. With my LG G6 I got it working after I turned access to the Microphone access Off and back On again. (odd but a true story :) )

Didn't work for me despite trying 2 routers.

Although many people are satisfied with this device, I had no luck getting it to work. After spening several hours looking up different tricks others have used, trying 2 different rounted a Netgear and TP-Link and still no luck, maybe a got a bad one.... but after a few hours I gave up and I'm returning it :(

Not as easy to setup0 as it should be

I found this unit to be difficult to setup and ended up returning it. Setup issues were: - Chromecast uses different terminology than my modern uses. Even my ISP was guessing at what modem setting CHromescast was asking for. - issues getting Google Home to work on an Android phone or using the phone browser to do the setup, Similar problems with Android tablet. Finally got setup to run using a laptop. - Had to try several times before Chromecast update would complete. - Finally got a Youtube cast from phone to TV, no audio. Picture quality was good.

Chromecast

When working or cooking around the house I play google music or YouTube videos through chromecast. I plugged the little device on my multi-HDMI sound bar. I simply start playing my music on my phone via wifi cast then all sound devices come on. Can stream Netflix from phone or IPAD.

Fantastic

Product is fantastic. Plug and play easy. Versus my old Chromecast this version requires a power plug in which surprised me. I guess it's got a more powerful range? I had an extra socket free so impact was minimal other than the extra cord kicking around the back of the TV.

High quality

Bought one FHD version and one 4K version when on sale, for steaming audio and video such as Netflix. One is connected to AVR, the other one is directly connected to a 4k TV. Both have extremely high quality audio and video, no any performance related issue. Very impressive! So small in size. Highly recommended if you wish to enjoy google Chromecast in android world.

Fantastic smart.

Bought this for my home and it really does the job. The image on my tv is a little hazy.. but it really not a bother for me. Streames youtube,crackle,Netflix and many more. It really is a add-on for my tv. I will give it a thumbs up. Compared to my playstation and apple tv this device wins.

Amazing product

This is an awesome product and works well with most if not all chromecast apps. Bought 2 and was impressed. Recently purchased the Chromecast ultra and it is also great. Would buy again

Does what it says, but poorly

The connection, interface, ecosystem, and functions are all far inferior to the Apple TV (even other third-party streaming products). I can’t use my Chromecasts (I have an Ultra as well) because they literally don’t do what I need them to do. Things like the lack of separation between device/Chromecast audio and the actual Chromecast not being able play the video and/or audio encodings I throw at it. The Apple TV does it all without question.. I get the fact that this thing is cheaper, but you really do get what you pay for. Chromecast Audio is good. But I cannot recommend Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra. 1 star.

Don't waste your money

It literally does nothing. It won't cast most things, and the things it does cast there is no audio plus it just guts out constantly. Piece of cheap, don't bother wasting your money on it. I got it to watch movies from my tablet to my TV, but it can't even do thathat. I'll be returning it because I can't figure out any use for it.

Easy to set up and use

Very simple to set up and use, but be mindful this is an official Google product and customization options are very limited. This may not be good enough for power users, but for anyone looking at basic casting options, this is a very good product.

Awesome functionality

When my PS3 died, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. I'm very happy wiht this as this also works with more apps then just one. I've used this more than my satalite since I got it. Plugs in easy and is easy to install. Very powerful for watching content on the apps.

Great Product Easy Set up.

This product is a great option if you don't have a smart TV. I bought the Chromecast originally when I went away camping for a week for those rainy days when we're stuck in side the trailer. I used to bring a whack of DVD's for this same reason but having the Chromecast allowed me to stream Netflix and YouTube to my TV and saved the lug a bunch of DVD's around.

Works great, very useful! I have 2 of these and an NVidia Shield with Chromecast built-in, love them! Would be 5 stars if it had the Multi-Room audio group capability that the Chromecast Audio does.

It wiped out all of the HDMI inputs on my new Samsung TV

Now I need to have my HDMI fixed but probably not worth it so waiting to afford a new tv now. NOT HAPPY

Noticed that it prefers to be powered 24/7 rather than be powered off daily. Otherwise it's easy enough to use and no problems casting to my tv.

Useful Product

Google Chromecast works well but sometimes has connection issues (like 5% of the time). Unplugging and plugging back in does the trick... I can't complain for the price.

Chromecast

Works as advertised. I have a Samsung smart tv so I can already cast my phone directly to it, but I'm using this with Google Home because Samsung tvs aren't yet compatible with Google Home.
