  • Audio quality No comments great!
  • Ease of use Phone not great as a remote. RW/FF is clumsy and gets worse the longer the video is. With many devices you want to use your universal remote, no can do. so-so

Detailed review
This is a great first release. I have niggles with YouTube on chromecast : "watch later" is not supported on tablet or phone only pc or Mac. This is annoying as watch later would be great for stacking up video to watch later on the big screen.

Most video players on tablet / phone have low granularity on rewind /fast forward ;making it clumsy.

I have several devices attached to my TV. I simplify my life with a universal remote which I can not use for chromecast media. Need an infrared dongle for my tablet or chromecast to enable use of a real remote...
