picked one up a week or so ago. It's a novel product and will no doubt get better as more content becomes cast-able, but as of right now I don't feel like it's compelling enough, and I don't really see what all the fuss is about. I can see using it in a hotel or the guest room in my house or something. After the initial tinkering, though, I haven't touched it. I guess I'm not the target audience for a product like this -- My TVs have built-in apps, as does my BD player, PS3, Roku, and multiple Apple TVs in the house. The tab casting feature was pretty neat, but it's laggy at times and has locked up on me a couple times. Casting worked fine from YouTube and Netflix on my iPhone 5 for the most part -- only once did the Netflix app on my phone lock up, leaving me unable to control/pause/stop video playing on the Chromecast. During testing I also found that my YouTube/Netflix apps on my phone would cast to my 2012 Samsung Smart TV (ES6500) and automatically launch the app on the TV once I pressed the "Cast" button. For whatever reason this feature wasn't available for my 2012 Panasonic Smart TV (VT50). My impression might be different were I involved in the Android ecosystem, but I haven't owned an Android product since the original Galaxy S.
