- Cost – $35 + content, which would be Google Play rentals/purchases, monthly Netflix fee, etc. Buying through Amazon got me three months of Netflix for free.
- Installation – it took me less than 10 minutes to plug the “dongle” (their word, not mine) into my TV, set it up on my wireless network and start “casting” my first show.
- Quality – great, IMHO. Content loads and plays quickly, no buffering issues. Haven’t had any connection issues. Easy to pause and restart.
- Negatives – the only downside for me right now is that you can’t cast from Amazon Prime. I hope that will change at some point.
Not only have I used it to watch TV shows and movies, I now cast a YouTube playlist to my TV while I work out. That has kept me more motivated than anything else I’ve tried in some time. In short, I’d recommend Chromecast for sure.
