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 HDMI

By Dan

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

The Google hdmi Streaming Media Player is very easy to install. Even I can do it. It works quite well. I have been using it with Netflix and HBOgo. No problems so far. There are a couple of things that could make it work better. One would be if you had a remote for the notebook. Then you could change shows without leaving the comfort of your recliner. I have a Nook which can
serve as a remote but I have not had it long and I am not used to it. I do have an android phone but with the plan I have I would use up my minutes.

A Different Way to Stream

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

OK, took a bit to catch on to the whole casting thing, but then ... I love it!

Casting is a great way to go, and not as restrictive as I've heard, unless you're opposed to Chrome. I can keep several apps open, and bounce back and forth with just a couple of clicks. Nice.

Used to have problems with my smart DVD Netflix app - but no more with Chromecast. And no other problems so far. Easy setup.

This thing is awesome and easy to use!

By greeded11

Comments about Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player:

We had heard about Chromecast from internet reviews, but were still skeptical. In Staples one day, and came across a display. Hey, for $35 it was worth a try. Got home, and within 3 minutes of opening the package, plugging it in and downloading the app, we were watching great shows! Easy to install, easy to use. We use it so much, might just cancel the cable!
