This little beauty was exactly what I wanted. It allows me to use the Chrome browser on my PC, a Nexus 7 and my Phone to Share/ Stream Various Media to My TV and between each other Effectively giving me a smart TV for a fraction of the price.
Google has only got a few Apps loaded on this at the Moment, but with the Popularity of the Dongle, the cost and the ease of the set-up and use, it won't be long before I would imagine a lot more of the big entertainment companies would like to get themselves aligned with Google to get access to this awesome little entertainment stick :)
I would recommend this Media player to anyone wishing to extend their Entertainment around the home.
Thanks fishpond for making it available to us in New Zealand and Australia because Amazon wasn't ready to sell to anyone outside of the US at that stage.
I made an order for a Google Chromecaset HDMI Streaming Media Player through Fishpond.co.nz. I was advised that the order was dispatched on 1 October 2014 and that I will receive it no later than 14 days. It is past the timeframe and I have yet to receive anything yet. Can you please urgently look into this as I need to obtain this as soon as possible.
The Chromecast when first arrived comes in a neat little box and looks quite nice,the chromecast its self is a small device with a black finish. The other components such as the usb power coord and power adapter which was under the chromecast are also in a slick black finish and the length og the usb power coord is long enough to easily reach my power outlet which is quite far from my tv but I was luckily enough to be able to plug the usb power coord into my tvs usb port. Tge chromecast was easily setup and was extremely easy to learn to use. I was extremely happy with it over all.
Second unit I brought from fishpond, arrived on the estimated ETA date. Great device, works like a charm casting youtube content from mobile devices to your TV, why get an Apple TV if you only want to use the Airplay feature, this device is better value for your money and more compact as well.
Very convenient. You can watch all your Google content (YouTube, Movies, Music) from any device. If you invest a few more $s you can stream videos from your collection from any PC and use your Android device as a remote (Plex, Mediabrowser). Excellent for the price.
