Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well - great streaming via phone and laptop Bought this a month ago to stream the web on my TV...easy setup, plug into tv then use app on android phone to enable WiFi/settings. Streams well from laptop (using chrome browser) were you can stream the complete tab page and movies by drag and drop onto web page. Android phone streaming and iPad work well too. Shame there is no GUI all done via phone or laptop but for the price its excellent bit of kit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Everything I Hoped I think my opinion is expressed in the title. I can now send screen display and video from my Galaxy S6+, and also from my Windows laptop wirelessly. Applications have to be Chromecast enabled, but this is the case for YouTube and iPlayer, which are the only two I have tried so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sad disappointment Bought to do what it said on the tin and it failed miserably! Wouldn't install properly at first so went to tech support as installation instructions virtually non existent ( 3 lines!). They failed to resolve it saying unit must be faulty. But after playing for another hour finally progressed to seeing install screen on TV. The system then wanted to upgrade and 3 hours and 4 reboots later unit still trying to upgrade. Phoned tech support again and they had no solutions. Item sent back for refund. A severe waste of time.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing For a long time I was undecided about buying a Now Box (Roku) or the Chromecast. I realise now they are different products in a lot of ways as obviously the Now box allows you to access Now/sky channels. Where as Chromecast is just streaming my phones display. So it's my own fault for not researching properly. Chromecast is back in it's box now unused not least because using it makes my TV unwatchable with interference and picture freezing. Great service from Maplin. Just make sure you know what you're buying..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It 'just works' really easy catch up TV and much else If you can watch something on your Android phone or iPad you can transfer it to your TV. BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and 5 all work very easily. I've little doubt there's a lot more this little gizmo can do. NB there is no remote control, you have to have a tablet or phone linked to the same WiFi.
