Very good invention

This is my second. My mom kidnapped my first one as a way of speaking. These devices are a great substitute for a smart TV and even better because they are easy to use.

Utter piece of junk

Plagued with reconnect me errors on both 2.4 and 5GHz. My first gen chromecast has been working fine on the same router for over 2 years.

Inexpensive and Works Well, Exactly As Advertised

The Google Chromecast seems to me to be the easiest and least expensive way to get into casting and streaming. The low cost doesn't mean "cheap", the device is technically up-to-date with plenty of memory. It does everything it says it will do and does it flawlessly. I've used it intensively---mainly with Netflix---without a single problem. Pros: (1) It is inexpensive and simple to install; (2) TV connects dependably to the Google Home app, which is also easily downloaded; (3) Zero tech problems so far, great picture on my 50" TV, no buffering or any play interruptions or glitches whatsoever. Cons: (1) Remember, it doesn't come with a remote but that is a trivial concern because play control is via your iOS or Android device; (2) Keep in mind that Play controls are limited to play/pause and quick 30-second jump rewind---no fast-forward or full rewind. I use my regular TV remote to control volume. I recommend Chromecast without any reservations, it is a bargain and works like a charm. Thanks for considering my comments.

Makes TV really smart

I have a Toshiba smart TV. It's painfully slow (several minutes to turn on the smart functions), to launch Netflix or Youtube. Most of the "Smart" applications are obsolete, or outdated - the company stopped updating the firmware after the first year. So now my TV is 4-years old and the screen is perfect but the software is bad. For $35 ChromeCast added all the modern functionality to my TV. The operation is flawless, all the apps supporting ChromeCast are happily casting to it and we're having lots of fun with my kids when everyone has control with their phone. The installation took 10 seconds: plug the HDMI into the TV, plug the USB cable into the power outlet... done. The software part was even easier. Installed the app, it found the ChromeCast device immediately and even sent to it the wi-fi password, so I didn't have to set it up. Bottom line: a high-class device, perfect solution for non-smart TVs.
