The Future of Streaming

Google Chromecast Ultra, Stream 4K and HDR, Built-in Ethernet Adapter
Google Chromecast Ultra, Stream 4K and HDR, Built-in Ethernet Adapter

Pros: The Chromecast Ultra is the streaming device of the future. Right now, Roku rules streaming with its selection of hundreds of channels. However, as more streaming apps become available for smartphones, Chromecast Ultra will take the lead. The Chromecast Ultra buffers very quickly. I tested the Pure Flix streaming service, and buffering completed in about two seconds.

Cons: The Chromecast Ultra comes without any instructions, but only a URL. If you experience any technical problems, you have to find your own solutions. I ended up writing my own page of instructions to set it up the way I like. That will make it easy when I buy another one. The Chromecast Ultra requires a screensaver consisting of two or more rotating photographs. This is annoying, since my Sony BRAVIA TV is not vulnerable to burn-in. There is no way to disable the screensaver.

Most Critical Review

Below average laptop

ASUS - 15.6" - Intel Core i7 4th Gen 4700HQ (2.40GHz) - NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M - 8 GB DDR3 - 1TB HDD - Windows 8 64-Bit - Gaming Laptop (N550JV-DB72T )

Pros: Touch screen is a nice feature.

Cons: Battery is not user serviceable. Must return entire laptop to manufacturer for battery replacement. Even an authorized service center for ASUS was unable to obtain a battery during the warranty period. Wi-fi range is very poor. Had to add an external wi-fi adapter.

Matches my ASUS Router

Overall Review: This is one of the best USB Flash Drives to plug into an ASUS RT-AC66U WiFi router for use as an inexpensive NAS (Network Attached Storage). It looks really good with its black color and blue LED, both of which match the router. Also, like my router, the LED is recessed so I only see it blinking when I am looking down on it. That means it does not distract me when I do not need to look at it.

Good Picture Quality

Pros: - Better picture than the camera I replaced.

Overall Review: This camera may cost a little more than other models, but it takes a better picture. I think it's worth the money.

Works Well at High Resolution

Pros: - Supports 1280x1024 resolution at 60Hz.

Overall Review: I had an old monitor that I needed to connect to my laptop and this cable made the connection easy. Now my laptop has two screens.

This Cable Works

Pros: - I was able to charge my wife's new Android phone with this cable. - Since it is 6 feet long, it reaches to the top of the kitchen counter.

Overall Review: The cable works fine as one would expect. Not much to say about it.

Good Service

The product was delivered promptly and the return process was prompt as well. However, I received multiple copies of the RMA number and the shipping label, even after the return had been received. This was annoying.

Ships from China

Corn Electronics had the best price on the item purchased, but if I had known they shipped from China, I would not have bought from them. Waiting extra days for the package was not worth the small savings.
