    Great Updated Chromecast

    I have owned all of the chromecast models that have been released. Compared with the last model there is no major refresh or update, just an improvement in speed and interface. This was purchased to join the other chromecasts I have, and this is the fastest of them all with the most reliable connection. I really dig it.

    I love love love this device. I had an older model before it stopped working and I switched to this newer one. I didn't realize how much I used Chromecast until the old one stopped working. It's great because I can easily share my desktop and tabs from my laptop to the TV. It is super easy to set up and use.

    There isn't a huge amount changed and if you owned the 2nd gen you probably wont notice a difference. If you still have the original Chromecast and you arn't looking to watch videos in 4k this is a great upgrade to have.

    Replaced an original 2013 Chromecast that couldn't connect to the 5Ghz wifi. Still the most used device in the house. They're so easy to setup and we always have a smartphone/tablet/laptop nearby to cast from.

    This is a perfect supplement for old beam projector with HDMI input but without internet connection. With fire tv stick and Chrome cast, old projector turns into an up-to-date streaming video-player.

    I only purchased this to get the multiroom audio support once the update happens. Other than that, it's not noticeably different than the previous generation.

    Great for casting media for both IOS and Android. I have it all the TVs even on the smart TV because sometimes it's faster to connect vs tv interface

    Great inexpensive way to add streaming features to an HDMI ported TV. Easy to set up and it’s easy to use. I recommend them especially at this price point.

    I upgraded from the gen 1 chromecast and have noticed a huge upgrade in speed and the 5ghz ac WiFi makes the constant buffering a thing of the past.

    Can’t be beat for audio. Not so good on video streams. I have gig internet speed but lots of freezing on video. Overall worth the money.

    Confirmed by Google they have a bug in ambient mode displaying Google photos. Can use Flickr though and that works fine.

    Not having a smart TV requires one of these to cast from phones/tablets. It's easy to set up and use.
