    Best Thing Ever!!

    I love my chrome cast! It’s so easy to use and set up!!! I have no regret in purshasing this! It’s awesome for anyone who doesn’t want to watch regular cable channels anymore. If you’re like me, you’ll enjoy the easy to use features with your apps on your mobile devices. I love how easy it is to connect to my pc monitors. I also like how small it is and that it doesn’t take much space at all along the wires of my speaker, monitors and other pc cables that are around.

    Life Saver on Vacation

    My wife and I were recently staying at a place that had a poor WiFi connection for the Smart TV. We couldn’t load Netflix at night to watch movies and were super frustrated. I had used a Chromecast in the past so I knew we could launch apps from our phones to play on the TV. Even though we couldn’t connect the TV through the WiFi we were still able to connect the Chromecast and watch movies on Netflix!! Absolutely made our vacation more enjoyable.

    I have the previous version of the chromecast, and compared to this one, I like the new one better. Easier to setup than the previous version, much to it is because google has improved the phone app to set it up. Only word of warning is that you will need to allow a few minutes for updates before it becomes fully functional. Once the update is done, you're immediately in business and can begin streaming anything your phone allows it to.

    This is the third chromecast I have purchased. I used them initially within my personal home, so that I could play videos/tv/music over the tv in my rec room, but quickly started implementing them in the AirBNB's I operate. Since so many people already have their own streaming accounts, this allows guests to play all their own content seamlessly without having to worry about logging in/out of their accounts.

    Makes watching movies in the living room quite simple. On the negative side, the Chromecast doesn't show on my phone 100% of the time even though it is connected to the home wifi. Anyway, it works almost all the time and does a fantastic job when it does so I didn't take stars from it. This is my 3rd chromecast, and I bought one more to share with the family.

    I own a first generation Chromecast. In comparison with this new version, I prefer the latter, since it comes with that small piece of cable that allows me to fold the Chromecast for more convenient use. I have connected it to my Vivitek portable pocket projector and it works perfectly. The only detail that I should comment is the time it takes to change from one movie to another. Other than that I am very happy with this product.

    I have a smart TV that does everything except allow me to cast MP4, MKV, or AVI downloaded movies to it. That's where the Chromecast comes in--simply plug it into an HDMI port, and a USB port for power, and you are all set. I have no problems with movies buffering, but my router is fairly close to the TV. I will probably buy the deluxe Chromecast in the future so I can cast in 4K, but at this time, the 1080P quality is fine.

    With the exception of the occasional short buffering, which may be mainly because of my internet provider, the Chromecast is a great option for streaming/viewing from various platforms (Hulu/Netflix/YouTube, etc...) from smaller devices like smartphone or laptop, on to the tv screen. Having Chromecast has helped tremendously with not having cable

    Every TV Has One

    I can't say too much more about the ChromeCast that you can't find anywhere else. The device makes it incredibly convenient to stream anything from iOS, Android, PC, or Mac (even Linux if you like to tinker). Every TV in my home has one and the original still works and is supported. This latest version is much faster than the original, only surpassed by the 4K model. Only downside is the lack of Amazon.

    Easy, straight forward set up after fixing my phone. Samsung's newest phones (9 and 10) need to be adjusted before they will work with ChromeCast 3. My Samsung 5 and 7 had no problem and Samsung blogs acknowledge the issue. the six step process involves clearing the cache, cleaning temporary memory and rebooting the phone. Simple, but finding the answer was not.

    I bought this item as a bundle with the Google home mini, which can be used to control the Chromecast. The build quality is good. Everything is controlled from your phone so no need for another remote laying around. It's easy to setup using the Home app. Always works great for sharing your pics, and videos on a larger screen. Lots of apps work with the Chromecast. I would highly recommend giving it a try!!

    I am finally trying to transform my house into a SMART home. The Google chromecast units are a must. Two of my TVs can be turned on with voice activation when you pair the chromecast with a Google Home assistant unit. Sound and image quality are great. Love to be able to turn my not so smart televisions into something more functional.

    Used to have the first gen Chromecast device (the one that shaped like a USB stick). After moving out of the house, I decided to buy another one for myself. Didn't think I would need the 4K version, so I got this. Personal experience: Everything just works right out of the box. Connects and stream things seamlessly from my computer, phone, laptop. It works perfectly with my Google Mini as well. No issues!

    I bought a pair of these for each TV in my house as I cut the cord and subscribed to YouTube TV. I'm impressed with how well the Chromecast units have worked so far. Streaming pauses very infrequently and picture quality is very good. I like how easy it is to cast a stream to these units from any device where the YouTube TV app is installed.

    This unit offers really outstanding value for the money, delivers excellent performance, super easy to set-up, all in a tiny form factor that uses no shelf space. About the only negative (for some folks) is the lack of support for Amazon Prime video streaming, really the only shortcoming but not a deal breaker considering everything else on offer here at the $35 price tag. Highly recommended.

    We have one of these in almost every room in the house. A must for the individual trying to cut the "cord" or someone who watches alot of TV via streaming services. Amazon is not supported yet, but that's Amazon's fault. If you have an HDTV I'd recommend the upgrade to the Chromecast Ultra to take advantage of that higher resolution.

    I cannot speak to the entertaiment features of this device (I use apple tv at home) but it works very well for our office. We have a tv in the conference room and instead of long cables to our large table, we simply stream to apple tv or to this Chromecast. I needed something for the PC users. The PC users can wirelessly stream their screen to the TV for us to enjoy!

    I bought the Chromecast Video to supplement my Rokus. Chromecast is becoming a standard for watching video on a TV. There are many Chromecast enabled apps and the Chromium web browser has casting capabilities built-in. Best yet, Chromeast enabled apps are available for IPhones too. It integrates perfectly with my Google Home devices so that I can control the Chromecast with voice commands.
