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.

Chromecast ROCKS!

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

This little device plugs into an HDMI port on your digital TV and extends the functionality of your portable devices - phones, tablets, chromebooks - and streams directly to your TV. Netflix, HBO Go, ESPN, most of the online content that can be viewed on a phone or tablet can be seen in high definition on your flat screen TV. This is very handy if you don't have DVR capability in every room in your house. We bought two. We put one in the family room in our basement and one in our bedroom. Just about anything that streams. Awesome!

I plugged it in and only took a few minutes for it to update and install and I could start using it to stream music/videos/pictures. Great product

Cool but could be better

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

I was able to connect to netflix and youtube but the internet browser just isn't great. The mobile browser is hard to use...through my iphone and nexus 7. It also took a while to set up (more than half an hour) and this was the second time that I had done it. There's some aps for chromecast for the iphone but they're small and don't scale well with a large tv.

just another streamer

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

i already have a smart television and Apple TV, and both work very well. the chromecast also works well, but it doesn't do anything my devices are not already capable of. my tv and android smartphone are dlna compliant, so I can, with some ease, send photos, videos and music to my television. then non-smart television gets the Apple TV. my devices (excluding my phone) are all apple branded, so it's incredibly easy to stream from my MacBook Pro and iPad to the apple tv device. the chromecast needs additional apps and support to really compete. as of now, you can only access the very limited library of apps and stream from chrome; what I would really like to be able to do, is mirror my phone in its entirety, and it's not ready to play that game yet.
