Good with issues
Posted by: nikonion from: on
According to Google, there is a known issue when installing the Ultra in that if you have an ethernet cable attached, the install will not work. Their workaround is to install with wireless and after setup is complete then attach the ethernet cable. Unfortunately for me that has not worked. It does continue to work great via wifi, but immediately upon attaching an ethernet cable my phone can no longer find the Ultra. Hopefully they fix this issue. If not I'll have to return my purchase to BB.
Here is the quote from Google:
The Chromecast team is aware of an issue that is preventing some users from setting up their new Chromecast or Chromecast Audio devices using the Ethernet Adapter.

4K Streaming for a good price
Posted by: blahnika from: on
If you have a 4k TV then you should get this! If not, then the other models are good. There isn't much 4K content, but at least Netflix and Amazon has some content.
Pretty much every app now lets you cast, so really easy to make it happen. If you don't get this Chromecast the older versions are good to for none 4k TV's.

A Chromecast with a cable!
Posted by: BrianInRaleigh from: on
It is hard to review a 4K Chrome-cast with so little 4K content available. I have watched a the new Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in 4K on my 4K tv with both an original Chrome-cast and a Chrome-cast Ultra. There was a slight improvement but nothing spectacular, though the Samsung 55" UKS9000 series TV may have a lot to do with that.
The biggest noticeable improvement comes from the device being a wired device. I did not have to deal with issues when both kids and my wife are streaming various videos to their tablets. This aspect was significant enough that I have ordered the wired Ethernet adapter for the Chromecast that is attached to the second TV.
I do not know if this supports WIFI, but in an apartment situation where there will be a lot of congestion on WIFI I am thinking the wired aspect of this will be a major benefit.

AWESOME LITTLE DEVICE!
Posted by: Kevin from: on
I hooked it up to my Yamaha 3050 which is connected to an LG E6 OLED, connection I used is wifi and man oh man this little sucker kicks butt.... first of all it is super fast and responsive. Second the benefits of HDR and Dolby Vision by itself is making it all worth it. I can confirm that it streams Netflix and YouTube (the 4 tiny clips :) ) in HDR flawlessly over wifi without a hitch.
I am super happy that I bought the Chromecast ultra.

Blue tint on entire screen
Posted by: inhere from: on
Was easy to setup and connect to Wifi / Ethernet cable.
However, just a few minutes into watching, the entire screen showed a blue tint. Every person on the screen had a blue face. All original colors showed differently with a blue filter. The screen orientation was also out of whack - the screen has shifted slightly to the right. The missing piece of right end screen (about 2 in wide) is now on the left end.
I have rebooted the Ultra and problem came back in about 2 minutes of viewing. The blue tint keeps coming back no matter what I try. I have tried rebooting the Ultra through the App, pulled the HDMI cable off, pulled the power cable off in many different sequences. The blue tint won't go away.
Google, do you have a fix?

Only for 4k TVs
Posted by: ArtVandalay from: on
This is good, but remember: you need a 4k TV for this or otherwise you should just get a regular Chromecast. Also: No Amazon App. :(

Faces turned blue
Posted by: S214 from: on
Faces turned blue, would have to shut off and restart. The longer you watched the more it would stop to reboot, then each time it would take longer and longer to get back to the program and/or change to another station.
