    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.

    All rounder, but not the best
    I have been using XBox 360 for streaming YouTube, Netflix, and occasionally Amazon Prime Videos. Recently bought chromecast to enable casting and reducing wires and cables in my home, but my experience with casting wasn't as great as I expected it to be. For starters, netflix casting from my android mobile isnot really as smoothe as Netflix app on XBox. While browsing, play/pause or forward/rewind, the casting loses its context and comes back to main screen, which is really annoying. I watch streamed videos from my laptop on my TV using HDMI cable. I thought that casting such videos on TV without HDMI would save me some trouble setting up the cable etc, but the experience wasn't really nice. The videos, even though they stream fine on laptop, do not cast nicely on TV. There is a lot of jitter and lag, so much that I ended up using my HDMI cable again. note that I have a TWC's rented modem which is best in class, so wouldn't think that router or wireless network would be an issue. Overall, I haven't really found a good use for this except sometimes casting photos from mobile to TV, or the entire mobile screen for that matter.

    Inexpensive and Works Well, Exactly As Advertised

    Verified purchase

    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.

    MUCH better than the previous model

    Verified purchase

    Have had an original version of this and gave it away because of excessive buffering which made it a waste of money. This one...have it hooked up to my mini-projector and it works like a dream. Only had very little buffering and that was when I was doing quite a few other things at the same time on my PC. Unlike the original...Google has done away with the Chromecast app I was used to using in the Chrome browser and my tablet/smartphone. After a couple of hours of trying to get it to work...finally found updated directions on how to use the browser from the PC. After this...was watching some TV shows from my TV tuner card. The worst part about this is the lack of updated documentation and the software since this has been released. With 35+ years of computer experience and running a media server to have to deal with the lack of clear directions because of upgrades is a travesty and needs to be better communicated for an absolute beginner.

    Great Streaming Device

    Verified purchase

    I own a Vizio smart TV that is several years old. It has good streaming capability built in but there is some content that is not available. The new Vizio TVs come with Chromecast built-in. I decided to buy the Chromecast to fill in some missing content and basically upgraded my Vizio for $25 instead of HUNDREDS. I got added content and I got all the extra features that Chromecast offers. I like the interface that Chromecast offers when I am not streaming from an app, there are some incredible images. I like that I don't have to open an extra app to stream from my Android phone. I was already using Google's Photos to store my pictures and Photos is fully integrated with Chromecast which makes it easy to view and showcase my pics on the big screen. I am still exploring all the features and apps, but I feel my money was well spent and I am very impressed so far.

    Google Chromecast

    Verified purchase

    This product does exactly what it is advertised to do. It is VERY easy to set up and get operational. If you are cutting the cable, this is something you really should try. Of course when you get something that is nice, you think of ways to improve it. It would be sweet to be able to project any window or the entire desktop if on a PC to the TV but Windows ans Apple will probably never let others in. I have tried the Google Chromecast from my family room TV using an iPhone, Windows 10 PC and MAC. All work the same way and equally enjoyed. I will be getting 2 more for other areas in the house. I defiantly recommend this item.

    Must have for your TV?

    Verified purchase

    Makes it so easy to cast videos from your phone to TV - or audio from Pandora etc. to your home theater - chrome browser now has ChromeCasting built in, another plus - and, if your aren't casting, chromecast defaults to a slide show of your choosing - once set up, it responds instantly and effortlessly to what you want to do - best $35 you can spend on your home system

    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.

    Easy & works

    Verified purchase

    I'll be getting another. Simple and straightforward to use. Love it. No extra remotes to lose. Moved TV with satellite cable box (Dish joey) out of garage because it was hard to get a good signal & downloaded dish anywhere app. TV works great. Very pleased it works with my exercise app as well. It's easier to see the TV screen than my little phone. The app monitors heart rate via bluetooth so I had to make a few attempts at getting the best location so there isn't signal interference. I put the phone close to the TV & chromecast; the bluetooth heartrate monitor seems to overpower the cast signal. I also setup the heart rate monitor and then turn on the TV with casting so the device (phone) can find the heartrate signal, then hit cast and bingo! It works better with phone. Also found a way to use with Amazon fire tablet.

    Fabulous Product--Need to Work on Installation

    Verified purchase

    I would have absolutely given this 5-stars, but the installation was a bit awkward. I had to call them for support. They talked me through an alternative method for installation, which I used on all the computers with success. Their support is exceptional! They are real English-speaking people with great personalities and humorous. My husband LOVES this product and continues to rave about it.

    1. Download and play games, buy/rent watch movies from iTunes. Watch content from a host of downloadable apps, such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO, Showtime, History Channel, ABC, NBC, etc.

    2. I am reading the Q&amp;A to learn more about the whole streaming stuff. Since the previous response did not, to my understanding, answer directly the question, I&#39;ll take a crack on the Q: Using the Chromecast does not decrease or increase data usage. The device (iPhone, iPad, etc.) one is using to get the content (movie, game, TV show, etc.) determines how much data is being used. I am on AT&amp;T Uverse. If I move my device to connect via my WiFi router, then I use zero data. If I leave it on AT&amp;T Uverse, then I use data. So when you are home, streaming content via Chromecast to your TV, use WiFi. Zero data usage. Techies out there, correct me if I am wrong.

    3. We don&#39;t have AT&amp;T Uverse either and we learned the hard way that if you don&#39;t disconnect with the chromecast after you stream, play etc. you do use data. Always be sure to disconnect before turning off tv or change back to your source to watch tv. We absolutely enjoy our Chromecast and use it to stream photos from our phones and other electronics so everyone in the room can see them.

    4. [TL;DR at bottom] The simple and correct answer to this question is YES. Any time you are streaming video, it uses a large amount of data (compared to things like loading web pages and checking email). The importance of that answer however varies greatly according to what type of data you are talking about. If you are using this at home and have any type of high speed internet that isn&#39;t metered (DSL, Cable, FiOS, etc) then it doesn&#39;t matter how much data it uses. If however you are using a wireless access point where you have to pay for the data that you use, then it does matter. But this is exactly the same issue as watching the same content on your home computer. It just puts it on your TV screen instead. If the question though is asking about the data usage on your phone (or other mobile device) used to control the Chromecast, the answer is no, it doesn&#39;t use the phone&#39;s data at all. You have to be connected to your local network to control the Chromecast, which means your phone HAS to be connected to WiFi to use it. TL;DR Answer: Data usage on your phone&#39;s data plan: NONE Data usage on your home ISP: A lot. Same as watching the same content on your home computer.

    2. I am old fashion, &amp; still learning. It seems to me Chromecast simply replaces the &quot;leash&quot; that a hardwire cable is able to do. I am looking for addtional features that is worth the money spent. I am sure there is.

    3. Chromecast basically converts your tablet or phone into a remote control. The movies, music etc do not play or download to your phone or tablet. Matter of fact, once you turn let&#39;s say Netflix on and start playing, you can even turn off your phone or tablet. Although after an couple of hours it may ask you if you are still there.
