    So much value for so little money.

    Tim | 19 October 2015 | Number in packaging: 1 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Fast
    • User friendly
    • Small and compact
    • Easy installation
    • Easy to take with you
    • Really no idea

    I just want to share my experience about how I made my best purchase ever and immediately discovered one of the best online stores in the Netherlands. Will also explain the product.

    TL;DR: Just buy this thing, at Coolblue, now. Just click.

    *Some weeks ago*

    So my ex runs off with my media player, interesting. Thing crashes more often in a week than the euros it cost. Yes hundreds. Now I can buy a media player with my own money without a fuss! I can finally decide for myself where each of my hard-earned euros goes. I get to choose the color, the size, and the price!

    So after all alimony I have about 40 euros left, what should I do with that now? My colleague points out that Google has a device for a few tens with which I can Netflix and YouTube. Sounds ridiculously cheap and it may be nothing but exactly what I want.

    So no food for a week and I'm going to order that thing from the best fastest most beautiful webshop in the world.

    Amazon,.. but they don't sell it? I Google on, Amazon has banned the sale because that thing competes too hard! What a bunch of bullies.

    Chromecast already sounds good to my ears, so I want it, so I immediately remove my Amazon bookmark (I don't buy from bastard shops) and ask my well-informed colleague for an online store that I can trust.

    Coolblue, who are they?

    "They are fast and cool"

    Okay it will.

    Ha, Coolblue is so fast and cool.

    At 23:30 in the evening I order the Chromecast on my phone from coolblue in less than 30 seconds. No account needed, but I'll make one anyway. Password doesn't have to be 3 numbers 7 capital letters and a strange character, fantastic!

    I also get the chance to watch hilarious movies while I wait, and I kid you not it didn't matter but I came home the next day with a package.

    Fast and cool guys, great!

    Okay, the product.

    *What is a Chromecast?*

    I didn't know either so let me explain.
    A Chromecast is an HDMI dongle, just like a USB stick, but for your TV. Via the Wifi you send what you want to watch or listen from your phone/PC to that dongle and you watch/listen it on your T.V. They call this streaming.

    *How does it work? / to install*

    You put that thing in your T.V. follows a super simple step-by-step plan, connect to your wifi and go with that banana. You use your phone as a remote control, or via your P.C. in your browser. Child can do the laundry.

    *Streaming services/apps*

    Netflix, HBO.GO, Youtube, Spotify, Twitch.tv, your browser screen all 1 press the button and voila it's on your T.V. with almost no buffer time. They are also still in development so they will probably support a lot more in the future. Also, Chrome is working on better development that you can use your entire P.C. screen and audio can be cast to the Chromecast.

    *Battery Expensive Phone*

    Apparently it also works with a special technology that you don't stream directly from your phone so it costs you virtually no battery life on your phone. Your phone simply tells your Chromecast what to do and what to open, so you're not actually streaming from your phone but directly from the source.

    *Future*
    Chrome has committed to supporting and developing the Chromecast for a long time, so your $39 will last a long time, and only get better.

    *Conclusion*

    What an invention, and for so little money. It is not a replacement for a comprehensive large media player. But for 39 euros this is very close. Ease of use is so great, and that thing is on every day at my house.

    Coolblue, you have a new customer too, what a top store with top service.

    • Easy installation
    • Easy configuration with app
    • Responds quickly
    • No stuttering during playback

    Very easily installed with the chromecast app. Can easily switch between networks. Responds quickly and gives a nice picture. Doesn't falter. You can stream everything to the TV via the AllCast app. No negatives discovered.

    Must have in your smart home

    Peter De Weerdt | 5 January 2019 | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • 4K
    • Cast to (stupid) 42 inch screen
    • ethernet in power supply
    • more and more apps
    • WiFi and 4K a critical combination

    The Google Chromecast technology is still underestimated, especially when you consider value for money. Netflix, NPO, commercial channels, Youtube, watch anywhere in the house. I've now connected two of them at home to (relatively) cheap 4K computer displays. Wow, wow, wow. Who needs a TV anyway? Combine the Chromecast with a Google home mini speaker and you suddenly have a real "smart home" for next to nothing. You can access information or entertainment wherever you want on any screen. And 4K is phenomenal. Refined, detailed, colorful. The only downside in a family: several viewers at the same time consume so much bandwidth that, in addition to Spotify, surfing, emailing, etc., the WiFi can sometimes barely keep up. A fast router becomes a must with intensive simultaneous use!

    So a must buy!
    • Improved WIFI range
    • Design (smooth HDMI)
    • incl 220v adapter
    • no RJ45 connector

    I had the Chromecast version 1 for a while, very satisfied with the possibilities. But in some circumstances the WIFI range was a bit too weak. This has been greatly improved with the latest version!
    The installation is very easy even for a layman. Beautiful interface and help with the start-up, including instructional video.
    Chromecast is a must for anyone who has a Netflix account, for example. Just take the small chromecast with you everywhere, together with your smartphone you can turn any screen with HDMI connection (including PC monitor) into a smart TV. In any case, you can't beat it for the price. Great service at Cool blue, so that's good too :-)

    Not bad but misses a few points
    • Setup is easy
    • Spotify support
    • Cheap
    • Fast delivery at Coolblue
    • 5GHz range is disappointing
    • Sound quality is mediocre

    After reading the super handy features of this dongle on paper, you decide to order one immediately.
    The setup went very smoothly, even a child can do it, hats off to Google, they managed this beautifully. Forwarding Youtube video, Spotify music etc... all went very smoothly via the Chromecast app, the operation is great in its simplicity.

    However, there are also some lesser points about this device that I hope will be fixed in a later firmware update. In several YouTube videos, the device suffered from stuttering sound and the image did not seem to run very smoothly, presumably the reason for this is the somewhat poor reception of the built-in WiFi antenna. While I can play HD perfectly with my laptop thanks to a cheap sitecom micro wifi 5Ghz antenna, the Chromecast has problems here in the same location, a bit of a shame (I think I will soon purchase the utp adapter so that my Chromecast can use the spacious and stable cable bandwidth.

    What for me personally is much worse than receiving the mediocre 5GHz is the sound quality when casting music.
    My Chromecast is connected to a Marantz 7009 receiver which has spotify connect functionality on board. When I forwarded the same music via Spotify connect (native on receiver) and then via chromecast I noticed a world of difference, the sound of the Chromecast just wasn't what it was via the Marantz function...
    Just to be sure, we called in the girlfriend for a listening test and indeed, the sound via the Chromecast was also found to be bland compared to the sound we get via spotify connect.
    These results also seem to be reported by several internet reviewers, the chromecast audio, on the other hand, is said to have excellent sound quality and I will buy it immediately as soon as coolblue has it in stock.

    For the rest, coolblue service and delivery were excellent as always, not for nothing the best webstore in the low countries!

    The Google Chromecast the perfect replacement for a smart TV
    • Fast connection
    • Compact
    • User friendly

    I think it's an incredible product. Very easy and fast connection. I use the Google Chromecast daily. I have already recommended this to many people and everyone is very satisfied with it!

    For less than 40 euros, I now have a SmartTV.
    • so simple

    A simple device that lets you conjure up everything on your
    • 4k and HDR possible
    • Very fast
    • Easy installation and operation
    • Ability to connect a network cable but also fast wireless operation
    • Use your mobile phone, tablet or computer as a remote control: no extra remote control lying around
    • Can only be used via another device such as smartphone, tablet or PC
    • Especially useful if you use a lot of other Google services such as Google Photos, Google Music, YouTube. Other apps support the chromecast less but the number is increasing!
    • No proprietary storage: The device must stream all data from the Internet or within its own network

    The Chromecast Ultra is used here with a Loewe Bild 7 (55" OLED 4k HDR TV). The 'Ultra' version is faster but the price doubling (79 vs 39 euros) compared to the standard version is only justified if you have a 4k ( UltraHD) TV and want the best image quality. Then the ease of use can hardly be surpassed. Often the built-in apps of a TV such as YouTube, Netflix, ... are rather slow. With the Chromecast you add a lot of functionality to your TV without that another remote control is lying around on the coffee table.

    No smart TV but smartphone, this is the solution
    • Connecting is childishly easy
    • Works for all apps like youtube, horizon, netflix etc
    • Not much faster than previous version
    • Quality can sometimes be less, usually picks up after a few seconds

    Very easy to use and great if you don't have a smart TV yet, but do have functions on your smartphone. Is really recommended and can even be used if you go on holiday and have wifi there *and TV of course.
