5 out of 5 eggsMost Bang for the Buck

Pros: Affordable, Small, light weight, user friendly

Cons: No HDMI cable included

Did you find this review helpful? Yes No

5 out of 5 eggsBest investment made for cheap

Pros: Works great for streaming Netflix, Pandora, Google Music, Plex and tons of other apps from my computer, android phone, or wife's apple devices.
Can't really beat it for it's price compared to capability.

Cons: Only real issue, which is minor, is that chrome browser video playback can be choppy at times. I'd also like to see more apps supported, but it is continuing to improve in both situations.

Other Thoughts: Originally bought this at Best Buy with the idea that if it sucks, I'm only out $35. Since purchasing this, my wife has been using it non stop to watch her Taiwanese shows on the large plasma TV instead of her laptop or iPad.
The fact it works well with Plex and Netflix also means I don't need to run an extra long HDMI cable from my computer to the TV.
Ended up picking one up for my father for Christmas as well due to the amount of use I've personally had at home with it.

4 out of 5 eggsI thought I was going to be untethered

Pros: Great to be able to stream to my TV from just about anything

Cons: If you don't have a powered USB port on your television, be prepared to use the AC adapter, which is a bit of an annoyance, but not the end of the world if you've got a spare outlet nearby.

5 out of 5 eggsa great, inexpensive way to stream media

Pros: inexpensive, fantastic integration with android apps, nearly limitless possibilities

Cons: could use better codec support

Other Thoughts: This little dongle is amazing for streaming. The only downside, in my opinion, is limited codec support - I use plex for streaming so this becomes an issue there but it won't be for most people so I'm not docking an egg. For netflix, youtube, google music and just about any other streaming service it is impossible to beat!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does what it is designed to do. Let's me steam to my TV from YouTube, ESPN, or whatever else I want

Cons: If I leave it plugged in and switch to the cable, it creates interference on the TV. Have to unplug the USB cable in order to fix the problem.

4 out of 5 eggsReally good.

Pros: All in all its super useful. pretty fast when running youtube or netflix, or hbo go. i like to watch "the CW" but its not on the list of apps that work, so i just have to stream from my phone. other then that this is a perfect little device.

Cons: Video glitch every 5 or so mins when its screen sharing from phone. while screen sharing anything that im watching it like, hickups or something where the picture freezes for like 2 seconds then jumps forward to where it should be. its not a big deal but it is annoying. i did pay for this device to work, not mostly work. if they fix this issue then this product will get 5 stars easy. all in all its a great little device.

you also need to plug in the power too, they say its not required but i do anyways because they say its "recommended" right on the box you power it. in the end its alot more then just a usb shaped device.

1 out of 5 eggssave your energy

Pros: small

Cons: locks up constantly
does not stream Chrome browser correctly
does not support some important apps

Other Thoughts: really, this is a great idea but I don't appreciate being used as a Beta tester on the open market. If you are going to release a product, it should actually work

5 out of 5 eggsChromecast is The best

Pros: I have had a chromecast for about 6 months and I have bought 6 so far, 2 for me and 4 others for family. This by far the best dongle for streaming, I use ios apps for the most part of just good ol' chrome extension. I highly recommend it.

Cons: Netflix ios app needs to be restarted every once in a while but that is a Netflix issue not chromecast issue.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy solution

Pros: Easy solution to cast almost anything from your android tablet to your lcd tv. The unit takes over the streaming from your tablet once you cast it. Control it straight from the tablet.

Cons: Can't think of one. They include an extension if like me the unit wouldn't fit into the hdmi slot cause of the way the back of the tv was designed. The extension solves that problem.

Other Thoughts: Neat little device that does what it says.

5 out of 5 eggsSimple, easy to use, powerful

Pros: Cheap (especially on sale!)
Easy to use
Works without problems
On its way to ubiquity - tons of new app support!
1:1 phone/tablet screen mirroring

Cons: Could use more app support, but it's getting there

Other Thoughts: This was my 3rd Chromecast purchase so far. I had gotten one for my parents when it first came out and it was so great I got myself one shortly thereafter. This purchase was for my friend for xmas ($25 on sale!).

I love chromecast. I use it with my phone or tablet and with the increasing app support it is the best streaming conduit I've ever used (way better than built in smart tv apps or casting). App support is getting larger and larger making me think that eventually everything will support chromecast. There is ever local file casting now (my favorite app is LocalCast, just use the 'experimental' option!).

I love that I dont need to use the TV remote control, everything is controlled by the phone/tablet app. because of this, the UI is great and connection is perfect! I use it for netflix, localcast, hbo go, showtime anytime and youtube mainly, but theres lots of new apps added all the time.
