Replaces the previous version. Big difference.

This works so much better than the previous version. Better stability and less lag. This will change the way you watch TV. Turns your TV into a smart TV for only $35. Go for it! Very competitive price.

Great!

Has placed the non 'smart' TV on equal footing with my smart one. I don't have to suffer the unreliable built in TV apps (Hulu ... yes, I said it). Best part?.... Once I enter chromecast mode, I can put my phone to sleep and use TV remote exclusively to navigate. Sweet!

Doesn't measure up to Roku

We have 4 Roku devices in the house, but I was looking for an alternative for the spare room, and figured I would give this a shot. Installation is a breeze. Anyone could do this, and it looks pretty cool, too. Once I unpacked it, I was a little worried when I realized there was no remote. This proved to be the biggest flaw. Without a remote, you are required to have a linked smartphone loaded with apps of the channels you want to view. Not a problem, I guess, if you live in a college dorm. It is a problem, however, if you are using this in a guest room, or have multiple young kids that might use it, etc. "Hi Grandma, if you want to watch HGTV, just pull out your smart phone, download the chromecast app, link to the Chromecast, then download the HGTV app, login to the cable provider, select your video, then press cast. Easy, right?" "Oh, you don't have a smartphone? Well, just let us know what you want to watch and we'll turn on your shows for you...while we are in the house, anyway." The Roku (and similar devices) have the advantage of storing apps on the device, as well as including a remote. If you feel like you want to do all your navigating on your phone, then cast it...then Chromecast will work for you. Just be prepared to make room to download an app for every channel you like. We returned the Chromecast and picked up an extra Roku.

Best Chromecast

I have the previous Chromecast and never have problem with it, it works everytime I use it. Now I bought this new Chromecast and you can see the big difference.....for me this is the best!

Cut the cord!

Got rid of cable an I am not looking back. Bought two of these for my two upstairs TV's. Got the smallest subscription to Playstation vue that really has all the channels I watch. Love that my kids can also cast their iPads to the TV and watch youtube videos on a bigger screen instead of the iPad. Makes sharing a lot easier too.
