ChromeCast is exactly as touted for a specific launch market.
The Google ChromeCast DOES handle wireless N, contradicting a previous negative post from an ignorant lazy reviewer.. Observe, the following information is readily available using a Google Search:<br><br>In fact, the Google ChromeCast has the Wireless Module IC Combo Azure Wave AW-NH387 which handles Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n) and Bluetooth 3.0 wireless connectivity. It also handles FM. So, the reviewer claiming that N was not accessible was simply not doing something right.<br><br>The ChromeCast offers an immediate inexpensive alternative for streaming Netflix, YouTube, Google Play (audio and TV/Movies) from any device to your HDMI ready TV. And, it facilitates the Display of content in your Chrome browser from your laptop or PC.<br><br>Obviously, updates will come and additional apps and sites will function just like many of the leading streaming units.<br><br>The $35 gets people into a limited device, which is why it is only $35 for now. The people buying this will be quite satisfied as intend to mainly use Netflix and Youtube, and are willing to use a Chrome browser for surfing net.<br><br>On the physical side, the small footprint and built in HDMI connector facilitates easier installation and placement than the current box design. The ChromeCast does require external power, which can be from the TV's USB source, or, an external source, such as from the wall by the included power supply. I, also, mention that it could be powered by an portable rechargeable power supply commonly available now to recharge tablets and phones on the go, as long as it met the same power output required as indicated by the label on the external power supply that is included with the ChromeCast.<br><br>4 out of 5 Stars for ow due to the obvious room and expectation for improvement.Read full review

For the price, Chromecast obsolesces all others
The Google Chromecast HDMI Streamer is Fantastic! HD quality video and audio, and relatively easy to set up with your existing wifi network. One pleasant surprise was that once you start streaming a video to your tv from your portable device (iPad in my case), the iPad can be turned completely off, or you can browse other content on the iPad, as the stream does not flow through the tablet. One drawback is that content is limited to Youtube, Netflix and Google Play, but that's guaranteed to change very soon, in my opinion, as this device is nothing short of magical.
