Easy Set-up:
- Plugged into TV HDMI & USB ports (USB provides power)
- Chromecast detected available devices for WiFi
- Installed Chromecast app on android device
- Input WiFi network details from phone to Chromecast

Playback works well:
- YouTube videos can be added successively to a queue of videos for playback (can't do YouTube Live broadcasts)
- Media volume can be controlled from android device as well as TV master volume
- Netflix/YouTube videos continue to play even if you leave the house with the device that launched the show
- Crisp, clear picture for all programs -- Looks fantastic
- Casting from a Chrome internet browser worked, but only for video sites that employ HTML5, so selection is limited (this will not mirror your screen)

Caveats
- List of supported apps (YouTube, Netflix, GooglePlay, RedBull, Songza, Plex) is short but valuable. Hopeful for expansion in future.
- Haven't tried accessing media library via Plex

First off, at this price, I just bought it without thinking. I mean, I have paid far more for many other devices that I have, but for $39 I am able to cheaply put this on my TVs that aren't connected to my more expensive devices.

Set up for this was extremely easy to, just as indicated by the "three easy steps". Granted, I am a bit of techie, so for me it was a no-brainer. Truthfully, if you know how to download apps, you should be able to handle the setup of this. If you don't, please get your kid/friend/partner that is slightly more technologically adept to set it up.

Usage is easy, Google is making everything simplistic to use and understand, and for anyone who uses Google services, you will find that it maintains the "feel" and logic of the other services it offers.

Overall, I truly enjoy this, I think the one downside is the limited apps provided on it, I would really like to see things like Flixster where I can watch UVs included soon (and maybe they are there and I just didn't see them), as most of my movies now are UVs. However, for $39, this may just be a cheap way for me to watch netflix on my TVs that aren't "Smart" and are not connected to any device that let me watch netflix.

In Summary:
Pros
- super easy setup
- cheap way to enjoy netflix, youtube, etc on a non-Smart TV
- can control off tablet/phone/PC
Cons
- limited apps (no flixster)
- I have heard (but not experienced) that it can be slow, but I believe that is more dependent on your internet connection

Should you buy? yes, if you have a TV that can't access Netflix.

Excellent product. Be careful though if using it with the UNBLOCK-US service. The USA content available through Netflix will not be accessible out of the box. The DNS is baked into this device and cannot be changed. So, even with your DNS settings for Unblock-US in your Router, you will only be able to play Canadian content, despite the fact that you can see the US content in the Netflix Interface.

There is a way around it but you'll need to do some digging for it. If you have a DD-WRT or Tomato firmware router you'll have an easier time using it with US Netflix.

If you don't understand what any of this means, this is the perfect product for you.

Roku 3 in many ways does a better job. But at its price, its hard to beat the chromecast. The delivery is super fast by the way.

Easy to install. Played music and HD video from iPad, iPad mini, Htc smart phone, Blackberry phone, Samsung galaxy 3 8" tablet. Sound and vide quality is excellent. However, apps of limited. Hopefully, more apps will be available. I have installed Plex app on iPad and one of my PC. I am now able to stream my videos, music and pictures from PC to my tv. I have no hesitation in recommending this product to others.

You can watch Netflix, YouTube, Vimeo, without any delays or problems. Syncs with Android tablets and cellphones after you download the app. Very easy to set up. Works fine, but very limited in terms of what's available to stream in Canada. Hope that Google does something to expand the options soon. Extremely compact and powerful little WiFi device that uses your android tablet or cellphone as a search device and remote control to get the video or movie started, and you can then turn it off and simply watch on your TV. Good for TVs that have an HDMI slot available but no WiFi.
