Google Chromecast
3 Star Review  cnet.com - Jul 25, 2013

THE GOOD: The <b>Google Chromecast</b> is a dirt-cheap wireless video dongle that streams Netflix and YouTube to your TV using Android or iOS tablets as remotes, with Android users also getting access to Google Music and Google TV and Movies. Its small size hides neatly behind your TV and makes it easy to take on-the-go. THE BAD: The beta screen-mirroring feature wont work as well as you want it to, so youre largely limited to four apps and without support for several major ones, including Amazon Instant, HBO Go, MLB.TV, Spotify, and Rdio. The lack of a dedicated remote also means you always need a smartphone or tablet nearby. THE BOTTOM LINE: Googles $35 Chromecast streaming-TV dongle is certainly cheap, but its limited initial app support and total reliance on mobile devices keep it well behind the Apple TV and Roku -- at least for now.

4 Star Review   By anonymous - Sep 19, 2013   

It was a nice addition to synchronize the different devices i.e. S4 and laptops... but the nicest feature has to be the ease of use. A monkey can figure it out. If you have any family members that like to show off family photos on computer, this is a great way to broadcast to the T.V. The Chromecast is small and un-obtrusive. Making it that much more appealing to those that don't like to see wires. There is a lack of available apps for it right now, but being able to broadcast your computer screen easily to the T.V. makes this a non-issue. For the price, these are almost disposable. I tried it out liked it, don't use it much, but it comes in handy when I do need it.
