  • Media support Media support is very low. I know it's going to get better but until then, it's not much of a life changer. poor
  • Video quality No comments great!
  • Audio quality No comments great!
  • Ease of use Ease of use is easy for the user who knows what they're doing but foreign / unintuitive to the ones who don't. so-so
  • Design and form factor Compact and hidden! Keeps your TV looking fresh with less cords to hide! great!
Detailed review
This product is great at what it does but what it doesn't do is kind of huge. It's nice for sending over content from YouTube and Netflix from my phone or PC but it pretty much stops there. In comparison to Apple TV, the media I can send to/from my devices is very limited. Netflix is nice but is on EVERY device already and YouTube is borderline the same category. What I do like, is that I can search the web from my computer or phone and send videos (from YouTube's page or app) to my Chromecast without having to interact with my TV's interface (Chromecast automatically switches my TV input to it) then ignore the app or tab and have my video stream at high quality from the web.
