Google's official Chromecast event certainly made the media streaming device look appealing. After all, it's a 2" HDMI dongle that allows a TV to play web video from services like YouTube and Netflix. And at a mere $35, what's not to love?
We decided to test one out for a Chromecast review and discovered that it's not as streamlined as it seems. In our latest, hard-hitting video, we blow the lid off the device and expose some of the flaws that Google failed to mention during its white-washed propaganda event! (If you can't tell, that's our sarcasm font.) We're just like Woodward and Bernstein, if those guys uncovered ridiculous things instead of doing real work!
Now, despite there being some aspects of Chromecast that Google smoothed over during its official announcement, it's still a solid little device. (And who among us doesn't hide some unsightly secret when we're trying to sell ourselves? That's just business as usual!) It's also been rumored that other video services (like Hulu Plus) are planning to bring content to Chromecast, so this thing will only get more robust over time. We just wanted you to have all the facts before jumping in!
Readers, have any of you tried the Chromecast yet? What do you think?
