Customer reviews and ratings

Google Chromecast. 4.2 5 182 194
chrome cast This is a great product the kids and my husband were very excited about it we can all watch Netflix on big screen would highly recommend it 25 November 2014
Don't Buy The product doesn't have the NowTV 3 months subscription as advertised. I don't I can return it as well. I have been chasing Googel support for some time and they are not very helpful. Few things I found to be problem with this product. The product is a little sluggish when using from a Windows Laptop. The apps that support Chromecast are limited. All the casting feature are labelled as Beta? The full screen casting doesnot transmit sound to the TV. 24 November 2014
Easy to to set up. Instructions are easy to follow Easy to assemble and get up running. Delighted with it 19 November 2014
great wee gadget easy set up can watch anything i bring up on my computer strait to my tv movies football old sitcoms on youtube just like a smart tv brilliant. 19 November 2014
Good ..... But ! Great kit but doesn't allow web browsing from iOS apple devices. The box and adverts imply that it's fully compatible with apple - and it isn't. Shame ! Wasn't able to return the product. I wonder if an Argos employee will respond ? 19 November 2014

Answer: 
Hello, Thank you for your question.
As I do not know what the model number of your TV is I would not be able to give you a definitive answer. It would be a good idea to double check if your TV has these ports before you decide to purchase, as without them you will not be able to use the Chromecast..
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer: 
If it's a modern TV you will have both options. Sometimes some TV's only have 1 USB and 1 HDMI. And if you have sky or virgin media chances are these ports are already taken :/

Id check your TV out properly before purchasing :). Don't purchase from Argos though!. There's no 90 day free music voucher...but if this doesn't bother you,unlike me. Go for it. :)

Answer: 
Hello. Thankyou for you question. The Chromecast will only display on a TV that it is connected too. To cast to another TV screen you would need to connect another Chromecast. Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Answer: 
Hello. Thank you for your question.
I can confirm that the only device that you have stated that would work with the Chromecast will be the Dell laptop providing you are running Windows 7 or higher, you would need to make sure you are running the Chrome web browser and have installed the Chromecast app.
The Chromecast will work with any Android device running Android 2.3 and higher and will also run with any Apple device running iOS 6.0 and higher
Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
