    The latest model of the Chromecast is great for watching videos on YouTube on any television because not only does it display clear pictures, but it also plays clear audio.

    I have been a fan of Chromecast for years, they make it much easier to share screens from a phone or laptop & send web based videos to a big screen.

    This works great with my older Vizio tv from a few years back. The screen is so much more clearer with this then it was with the previous model

    Easy setup. Great way to make a HD montor or or TV perform equal to, and often better than a smart TV.

    As the title says, my laptops don't support Miracast so I purchased a Chromecast. I works great for sharing content I have in our Google Chrome browser. High Definition streams are very good quality.

    Loosing it's charm with 3rd Gen

    When Google launched the 1st Gen Chromecast I was amazed with how good this small dongle would do but now with 3rd Gen at $35 for a 1080p resolution! Where as other streaming dongles such as Roku and fire stick providing a 4k UHD at this price. Google must really think it's strategy.

    I had been on a search for a decent streaming device that I could use to stream the media content from phone or an iPad and I found a perfect match for my needs in the form of a 2018 refresh of Google Chromecast. Swaying away from the design cues of a previous version of Chromecast with a new logo and a matte finish it looks neat. With addition of Bluetooth and 1080P with 60 fps with a better WiFi connectivity. If you are looking for 4K go for the ultra model but if not this would suffice all the other needs for streaming.

    Great price and picture quality. I was going to get a more expensive one but I asked questions and the sales guy said you'll be fine with this one. Not only did he save me money but his honestly bought my loyalty here. I will be back.

    Not for most but a must for YouTube 1080p 60fps

    Alright I'm going to be honest. other than a aesthetic change to match the Chromecast Ultra and a bit of an increase in size. Not that different than the last Chromecast and most people with the second gen Chromecast aren't missing out on much. Except for one difference that will make buying this model worth it for a small group of people of which I'm a part of. The gamer and the game walkthrough watcher community. Because internally the specs of this model I think give this model a 15% boost in performance which is modest but significant enough to enable this specific model to output video at 1080p at 60fps where as the previous model could only do 1080p 30fps and 720 60fps. This is important to me because Youtube since 2015 has enable channels the option to upload HD video at 60fps which is useful in particular for video games that play at that framerate (basically all PC titles and a large portion of console games in particular first person shooters and some others) I particularly value it because one channel on YouTube pretty much uploads all there videos in HD at 60fps. That channel would be the lovely people at Digital Foundry. If you don't know who they are then go check them out and you will quickly see they are more than a typical gaming channel. So basically if you like watching YouTube in HD at 60fps then this is for you other than that then your not missing much. Except maybe the fact that this can also be used with Google's smart speakers or rather Google home I can't really remember exactly but it involved something with speakers. So that's all I know.

    The Chromecast was easy enough to set-up. It plays the YouTube videos from my Samsung Galaxy 9+ phone's source onto the Television. The clarity of the resulting images and videos are acceptable. The sound quality is fine as well. Not a bad option when playing the phone's content to a room full of people. Although the television knows to switch to the proper input device channel when content begins playing, the setting needs to be manually changed once finished with Chromecasting - a limitation no doubt of the other components I am using with it (XBox One, DVR, etc) Good job, Google!
