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.

Chormecast

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

Originally we bought a Google Chromecast during Thanksgiving for ourselves, it was easy to install and activate it. Love the fact that we can cast from our phones and laptops, a bonus thing is that we can close the laptops and it doesn't affect the casting. Like that you could start playing a video using your smartphone, tablet, computer as a "remote" and still be able to browse the web, play a game, check your social apps, write a book report, put the device to sleep, turn the device completely off (I tried this myself), or leave the house, and the video will still play without issues. Love the fact that it is extremely inexpensive and the product pretty much pays for itself. That lack of buttons or menus makes it dead simple to use. I did notice that if you scream form the web or YouTube there is a few seconds delay not sure why but other than that it works fine. We loved it so much we recently bought one Google Chromecast for my parents who now use it every day as we do as well.

not what I expected

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

The set up instructions were unclear in one detail, which really slowed me down. It has much more limited program availability than I had hoped for. I like to shut off my router to limit power consumption and this makes the Chromecast blink a rapid white light which is annoying. Also the light is way too bright even when not blinking. The device gets hot, so it is consuming power all the time. I've read on forums that if I unplug it, it may forget the set up data and require setting up again. And apparently it has frequent software updates that create a problem if interrupted.

Works well

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

I am using a Google Chromecast with a Vizio Smart TV for the last 3 - 4 weeks. The Vizio does connect to youtube like places, but then some videos buffer and buffer forever. I assumed it must be the slow internet. Then, a friend suggested I buy Roku or Chromecast. Did some research and felt that Chromecast would work better for me. I already use an iPad, so I decided to see how Chromecast works. Turns out my choice was the right one. I easily navigate the internet using Chromecast. There is no buffering of youtube videos any more. I have no idea about other apps like Hulu and stuff. But Youtube works great with Chromecast, and that's what I use the most. So I like Google Chromecast.

Performed as expected

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

I had heard about the Google Chromecast and felt that it would be perfect for me. I like to stream video's and movies on my television. Before this meant running cords from the television to the computer. While this was ok, it was tedious. Now I can cast only the tab that I want and continue working. This device works best while streaming Netflix or youtube, as they have built in capabilities. The only issue i found is the delay in casting video's from other pages. i.e. Facebook. Overall I am enjoying this product and plan to buy it again for the other televisions in my home.
