This is an excellent product. I just wish that I could use it with my 3G network. This would be a handy feature for more options were wifi is not available. This is the only con that I have noticed about this product. The image qualityies are supurb. I do enjoy how it still streams the media via the wifi connection during a call. This is a new product and I have yet to learn of all of the capabilities it will do. I definately recomend this product to anyone. I think that it would work better on a faster streaming IP than my current DSL provider. Even at the DSL speed it does very well. I am using my PC monitor, and have seen it used on a 72" TV. Both instances I was amazed at the quality of image produced with the Chromecast.

This appears to be a high quality device. It was easy to set up, although making it work with Windows 7 was a bit of a challenge (I needed to disable a VPN that I didn't know I even had).

My main disappointment is that the capabilities are quite limited. I was able to display my browser window on my TV with ease. But the only streaming video service I use is Amazon Prime. While I could display that remotely in a window, I was unable to display it full screen. I am optimistic that Google will update the capabilities, but would not recommend this product to a friend until then.
One other issue, the device apparently interferes with our over-the-air antenna. We have to power down the device in order to view local TV.

Awesome product and great price

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

This is a fantastic product and the best bargain out there right now. I bought the Netgear Push2TV and tried for HOURS to get it to work on my Dell XPS-12. Never worked. I took it back and bought this and it took 3 minutes to set it up and start streaming content to my TV. Works great with Netflix too. I just hope that Google is serious about this and keeps updating it (they have a tendency to bring products to market and then abandon them). I am a Chrome/Gmail user and you will need to do the same to fully utilize this product. Way to go Google!!

Hidden problems

By Biker guy

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

I was looking forward to using my new Chromecast as soon as I got home. Imagine how disappointed I was to discover it wouldn't work with my iPad 1. There was a NOi ndication in the box as the "minimum system requirements," so this came as a shock. After reading blogs, it was apparent that others have had similar problems. Also, the instructions that come with the product are minimal and not very helpful. Be prepared to go to their website to figure things out.

Very disappointing.

NOT a winner

By NeTRaFFiK

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

My tech savvy is somewhat high but connecting this unit to my hdtv thru my laptop never worked. The best I could do was get an error message: your laptop does not have a compatible OS. OK -so I tried my android right? Well then my error message was your wireless network cannot connect to the bowtie. Now that was frustrating- in the meantime the unit is running very hot and although I couldn't connect for streaming content it seemed that the content that was available is very limited. SORRY Google this is a FAIL.
