    • Missed Opportunity With 'Ultra'

      from Whitby, ON on July 14, 2018

      Google could have nailed it with the Ultra, if they had only included a 3.5mm jack. This iteration of this product should have consolidated the Chromecast Audio feature with the original Chromecast. I want a portable casting device that can plug into a TV via HDMI, but I should also be able to plug this into an 3.5mm audio device such as a portable speaker when a HDTV or HD Receiver are not available. What's the point if I have to buy a separate Chromecast Audio anyway? Missed opportunity Google - I wouldn't consider this 'Ultra'. Long live the 3.5mm standard!

    • Works as advertised

      from BRANDON, MB on July 3, 2018

      This gadget is basically "plug'n play". The pairing process with my Google Home Mini via my Android tablet was very easy. The picture quality is perfect (for my standards - it runs on my older 42" 1080p TV) and response time is very quick....Love it.

    • Very good

      from Edmonton, AB on December 21, 2017

      Since I got this (August 2017), never had problem with it. I have cable but don't use it anymore. The kids love it and keep watching their favorite movies through this Chromecast Ultra. The pictures ares great as cable pictures

    • Great product works well and it's extremely fast

      from QC on November 28, 2017

      This is an awesome product and works well with most if not all chromecast apps. Purchased it to replace my Chromecast because I wanted to use an ethernet connection instead of wifi the it's faster than the chromecast 2015 the 4k resolution and hdr are nice extras.

    • Easy setup, but 4k?

      from Markham, ON on September 12, 2017

      I already had the previous Google Chromecast and needed the 4K. Although I'm on a highspeed wireless network, the video mirrored from my Samsung S7 was far from 4K quality even though it was recorded in that quality. I still like this product very much for its versatility, but question the quality for the extra price.

    • Desktop Mirroring is barely usable

      from Vancouver, BC on July 4, 2017

      I had to return the Chromecast Ultra after a couple days of usage because I need to mirror the desktop onto a large 42" TV. There is so much lag that it is barely usable.

    • Unbelievable

      from Woodbridge on June 17, 2017

      EASY to install on my Onkio receiver. Seems impossible that a small device can keep a so high technology. I hope it can last and be reliable.

    • Works Great..

      from Lethbridge, AB on May 16, 2017

      Plugged it into my stereo receiver, and it connected right away.. Super fast response..

      Hey Mitchell, I know it is more expensive, But since you mention you were using a Macbook, you should have just went with an Apple TV. We use them at my work to display HD content from our iMacs to tour TV's. works like a charm.

    • Extremely pleased with this device!!

      from Regina, SK on March 13, 2017

      I bought the first Chromecast when it came out and I loved it, I still use it today. I just got this one, and I love it, too! Load times are so quick!! Unfortunately my display is only 1080p, so I have not tested it's 4k capabilities, but so far so good.
