    I was expecting this to work without a lot of tech knowledge but when I searched troubleshooting that was not the case.


  • No sound after only two months

    The sound stopped working after owning it for 2 months. As it is used for watching videos and listening to music, this makes it essentially useless. Unless you know at least one deaf person, I don't recommend this.


  • Great video but NO Surround Sound of anykind

    Will pass only 2.1 audio. For casting a movie or show no problem but only in stereo.


  • Missed Opportunity With 'Ultra'

    Google could have nailed it with the Ultra, if they had only included a 3.5mm jack. This iteration of this product should have consolidated the Chromecast Audio feature with the original Chromecast. I want a portable casting device that can plug into a TV via HDMI, but I should also be able to plug this into an 3.5mm audio device such as a portable speaker when a HDTV or HD Receiver are not available. What's the point if I have to buy a separate Chromecast Audio anyway? Missed opportunity Google - I wouldn't consider this 'Ultra'. Long live the 3.5mm standard!


  • Works as advertised

    This gadget is basically "plug'n play". The pairing process with my Google Home Mini via my Android tablet was very easy. The picture quality is perfect (for my standards - it runs on my older 42" 1080p TV) and response time is very quick....Love it.


  • Very good

    Since I got this (August 2017), never had problem with it. I have cable but don't use it anymore. The kids love it and keep watching their favorite movies through this Chromecast Ultra. The pictures ares great as cable pictures


  • Great product works well and it's extremely fast

    This is an awesome product and works well with most if not all chromecast apps. Purchased it to replace my Chromecast because I wanted to use an ethernet connection instead of wifi the it's faster than the chromecast 2015 the 4k resolution and hdr are nice extras.


  • Easy setup, but 4k?

    from Markham, ON on September 12, 2017

    I already had the previous Google Chromecast and needed the 4K. Although I'm on a highspeed wireless network, the video mirrored from my Samsung S7 was far from 4K quality even though it was recorded in that quality. I still like this product very much for its versatility, but question the quality for the extra price.


  • Desktop Mirroring is barely usable

    I had to return the Chromecast Ultra after a couple days of usage because I need to mirror the desktop onto a large 42" TV. There is so much lag that it is barely usable.


  • Unbelievable

    EASY to install on my Onkio receiver. Seems impossible that a small device can keep a so high technology. I hope it can last and be reliable.
