Non 4k 12/27/2017 10:35:57 AM

Pros: This Chromecast is okay and works like it is supposed too but it is simply outdated.

Cons: No 4k support and honestly the design is too "functional" if you will. Not stylist at all. The new chromecast improves a lot on this aspect.

Overall Review: Get the new chromecast.

As advertised 10/10/2016 6:49:00 AM

Pros: Easy and fast

Cons: Gets a little warm

Overall Review: The wife and I bought this because she wanted to stream netflix in the bedroom, and we needed something for NFL Sunday ticket.

We love that we bought it, and love how it works. However, I do not like leaving it plugged in all the time because it gets really hot.

Great streaming device... that won't play nice with Sling TV. 9/15/2016 11:06:27 AM

Pros: - Steams everything smoothly (All Google Apps and Netflix)

- Small size


Cons: Just flat out AWFUL when trying to use Sling TV. Was banging my head against the wall trying to figure out who was at fault for the constant buffering and stuttering. Checked our internet speed with our ISP... 150 Mbps; not a problem. Checked our router... not an issue. Bought and installed the wired ethernet adapter for the Chromecast to rule out wifi issues... nope, still stuttering. Tried casting Sling TV from several different devices (My wife has a Nexus 5X... I have a Galaxy S7... we also have an iPad mini)... nope, same buffering on every single device.

Was finally at the end of my rope and was either just going to put up with the horrible Sling TV streaming or cancel it and sadly go back to the cable company... UNTIL I BOUGHT A ROKU 3. The difference is night and day... the Roku 3 is so much faster at doing everything and Sling TV is now as smooth as watching cable TV. If you are having streaming / connection issues when using Sling TV on a v1 Chromecast... DITCH IT AND GET A ROKU 3!!!

Overall Review: I still like all of my Chromecasts (two v1's and two v2's and one audio)... they are super affordable and do what you want MOST OF THE TIME, however they just stink when trying to use Sling TV. Get a Roku 3 if you plan on cutting the cord and using Sling TV to replace your cable channels.

Pros: Amazing picture quality, great sound... PERFECT for streaming.

Cons: You can't transfer exact screen to screen picture, only a google chrome web browser.

Pros: Makes any TV a smart TV. With one press of a button from your phone / tablet / pc, your TV will turn on, change inputs, and start playing.

Cons: none.

Overall Review: Every TV in my home has chrome-cast running it. Hands down the best add-on for any TV.
