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.

Brain Freeze Error Constantly

By McWriter356

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

Personally, I would not buy this product again, and I am considering returning it anyway. I have not been able to use this product for more than a few seconds to three minutes max. I keep receiving a brain freeze error where the Chromecast disconnects and then nothing will cast to my TV. Plus, I'm not even sure how to contact Google for support. I did find their forum, and there are bunch of other costumers who are experiencing the same problem: possibly due to an firmware update. I've followed all of the suggestions I have read from the support forums, and it still doesn't work. I think this product is a good idea in theory, but it just doesn't work for me.

Such a great device

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

We really love this device- it's great, the whole family really likes it and everyone uses it all the time. The device works perfectly, the set up is incredibly easy, it's exactly as described on website. i just wish I knew about it earlier so I could have taken advantage of all it offers. I've ordered three of them already for other family members, we will take them along when traveling and we will use them on hotel or conference room televisions. Such a great product, again just wish I knew about it sooner.

Simple setup, great content

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

The Chromecast is very easy to setup, simply follow the directions on screen once you plug it in. There are a number of apps available on your phone (Android in my case) that have content compatible with the Chromecast. Even if there's no app, you can cast whatever is on your screen via the Chromecast app. In addition, you can add the Google Cast app to the Chrome browser on your PC or laptop so that you can cast your browser tabs right to the TV.

Based on how easy it is to use, the amount of content available, and the low price tag, I highly recommend the Chromecast.

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

We had a Samsung Smart TV that could get Hulu but NOT Netflix all the time. On the advice of my sister bought this nifty device and now have no problems viewing anything. Easy to install and highly recommend.
