Engadget Review

Google Chromecast review: can you make your dumb TV a smart one for just $35?

Chromecast is an easy way to stream internet video to your TV from almost any source. With a price of just $35 it's a bona fide steal.

Pros
  • Inexpensive
  • Simple and easy to set up
  • App implementation is slick and easy to use
Cons
  • Limited app support for now
  • Chrome browser casting is a less-than-ideal UX and requires fairly new computer hardware to stream in HD
