Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway

Danny Stieben 15-10-2013

Smart TVs such as the Vizio E320i-A0 Vizio E320i-A0 32-inch Smart TV Review and Giveaway To test out whether a TV can be feature-filled yet affordable, I bought myself a Vizio E320i-A0 32-inch 720p 60Hz LED Smart HDTV, which came in at $288 ($290 at retail price). I tested it... Read More smart TV can be a great addition to any room in your house. But what if you just got a shiny new not-so-smart TV or don’t want to spend that much money on another one? Have no fear, because there is a much cheaper way to turn your dumb TV into a smarter TV.


We’re giving away a Google Chromecast, so read through our review, then join the competition to win!

Introducing the Chromecast

Google recently released the Chromecast, a small dongle that will teach your TV some new tricks for just $35. Smart TVs consist of apps that can provide you online entertainment without having to connect your computer to the TV. The Chromecast tries to flexibly replicate this functionality at a lower cost. As you’ll see, it’s not a perfect replacement but it’s a great middle ground.

Initial Impressions

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 3

The Chromecast comes in very simple packaging. Within, you’ll find the dongle, a USB to microUSB cord, and a USB power supply. The cord is needed because the dongle needs a power source to operate — the HDMI specification doesn’t supply sufficient power. While Google recommends that you use the power supply, it shouldn’t really matter. You can plug it into any nearby USB port and it’ll work just fine. The only gripe I have here is that (in my case) the cord seems to be rather short. An available power outlet would have to be pretty close by.

Setting Up the Chromecast

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 5

Once you’ve plugged it into your TV and connected the USB cord, the dongle will automatically turn on. Make sure your TV is set to the correct input source, and you should see a screen informing you to visit a certain website to set everything up. Following the instructions is pretty easy — after loading the wizard, you connect to the WiFi network that the Chromecast creates, tell it which home WiFi network it should connect to (via the wizard), and then switch back to your normal network. I’ve noticed that the Chromecast is rather picky about your WiFi networks, so make sure that it isn’t very restrictive and that it’s actually a full-featured network rather than a hotspot or something. This device is really meant for home use.

The Chromecast works by receiving “Cast” information from another device via a WiFi network. Cast information can come from various sources, including a Chrome browser tab, or Netflix, YouTube, and Google Play from your Nexus Google Nexus 10 Review and Giveaway Google has recently come out with a number of intriguing products, including the Nexus 4, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, and multiple different Chromebooks. I've recently reviewed a Samsung Chromebook, and Jackson has taken a look... Read More or iOS device. The list of supported media is definitely short, but the device is still rather new so I’m sure that the list will grow over time. Pandora and Hulu Plus support are already on the way. Again, the Chromecast tends to be picky about the WiFi network it connects to. While the Chromecast doesn’t use the Internet for Casting purposes, it does still require an Internet connection so that it can check for firmware updates.

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 8

Once you’ve successfully connected the Chromecast to your WiFi network, you can use the Chromecast app on Android or the Google Cast extension for Chrome to connect to your Chromecast. Once it has found the Chromecast on the network, you can Cast whatever is on your screen with a single tap/click to your television.

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 9


Living With the Chromecast

Performance depends on what you’re using to Cast with. If you’re using an Android or iOS device for YouTube, Netflix, and Google Play, then your performance will be fantastic with smooth frame rates and high-quality audio. However, if you’re Casting from your computer, you’ll see decreased performance in video and audio. This is because the Chromecast extension for Chrome has to take the equivalent of a screencast and send it to the Chromecast — doing this requires a lot of work for the computer. Even with my decent Ivy Bridge Core i7 laptop, videos were stuttering quite a bit. The laptop fan was also spinning in high gear.

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 10

This functionality may seem a lot like a simple HDMI connection from a laptop to your TV, but there are a few advantages and disadvantages that the Chromecast provides compared to a direct HDMI connection. First, it is a lot easier to cast from your Android device as you won’t have to buy a special microUSB-to-HDMI cable. Second, unlike a direct HDMI connection, you’re free to roam around your house so long as you’re still connected to the WiFi network. Additionally, since you can choose to only cast a specific tab in Chrome, you’re free to do anything else on your computer so long as you keep the tab you’re casting open (it can be minimized just fine). With a direct HDMI connection, you’ll have to keep your laptop right next to the TV, and you won’t be able to work on anything else on your computer without setting up a tricky dual-monitor setup. Plenty of full-screen applications also tend to exit full-screen mode whenever you click somewhere in your second screen — that defeats the purpose.

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 11


The main disadvantage to using Chromecast is that you can’t cast anything you want. While most content is now available online, you’re out of luck if you want to cast anything else, such as your desktop or a locally stored movie (or DVD, if you still use those). The Chromecast is certainly useful for online applications, but that usefulness disappears completely for any other needs. Additionally, if you’re casting from your computer, you can only show webpages or full-screen content if the video player is HTML5 — going full-screen with a Flash-based video player won’t work.

I think that the Chromecast does a good job of providing faux Smart TV functionality, but I don’t think it would replace an actual Smart TV. With Smart TVs, you have access to far more content via native apps — the only advantage a Chromecast would have here is if you like to cast regular webpages or if you use an online media service that doesn’t have an app on your Smart TV. If those advantages don’t strongly apply to you, then getting a Chromecast would be a waste of money.

Chromecast’s biggest competitor is by far Apple’s AirPlay What's AirPlay, And How To Use It In Mac OS X Mountain Lion Imagine you want to play your favorite album in Spotify. Naturally, you'll be hooking your computer up to a better sound station. But what if you're lying in bed, or sitting on the couch? Ideally,... Read More technology that you can find in iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, most newer Macs, and plenty of third-party products. This early in Chromecast’s existence, I definitely have to say that AirPlay is better because it is a lot more prevalent, a lot more flexible, and the technology has matured longer. If you don’t own any Apple products at all, then I’d probably suggest getting a Chromecast if you’re interested in it, but if you’re already using Apple products and AirPlay, then stick with that — you’re not missing out on anything yet.

Should You Buy A Chromecast?

Despite the Chromecast’s young age, there are already a few other alternatives worth checking out. A service called CheapCast Did You Know You Can Make Your Own Chromecast For Free? A brand-new shiny Chromecast may only be $35, but what if you can't easily get one in your area? Lucky for you, a free app called CheapCast has hit the Play Store that can use... Read More is meant to duplicate the capabilities of the Chromecast, but it still lacks some crucial features such as Netflix mirroring. It works by using a spare Android device as a faux-Chromecast “receiver” that is then connected to your TV via some sort of HDMI connection. Owners of a Raspberry Pi can also get PiCast, which seems to be a simple network-based mirroring solution. It’s far from complete, but it’s certainly a budding project. Both of these are free to use (minus the cost of the spare Android device or Raspberry Pi).

Google Chromecast Review and Giveaway chromecast review 7

Chromecast is a fantastic idea and a tool that works, but it still needs a lot more support and development before it can become a true AirPlay contender. Maybe in a year’s time, it’ll have the capabilities and support to do everything AirPlay can.

Our verdict of the Google Chromecast:
Buy if you don’t have a Smart TV or use Apple products, otherwise it’s up to you.

    The best use is from Google chrome, which can be used to open files on our hard disk by opening the link to our home network and then casting anything we see on our pc onto our TV. It opens unlimited opportunity for us.

    I think an innovative use for Chromecast would be to utilize the ability to wander around and stay connected through wifi. You can use it as a learning tool (like watching cooking or how-to videos) and don't have to feel like you're stuck in one spot to learn something.

    I think the most innovative use would be to have it connected to a monitor and then you can easily switch which device is connected to the monitor without messing with any cables. However, this will only work when the desktop 'casting' is improved.

    Good use case would be bringing the chromecast and your smartphone on vacation and using it to watch Netflix, streaming video to the hotel's TV.

    Chromecasting powerpoint presentations using the phone as a remote would be cool too.
