I have had the Google Chromecast for for about half a year now and I absolutely LOVE it! It is so easy set up and is so user friendly it's unbelievable! I have it set up in my apartment living room so that my roommates and myself can all use this when we want to. I think the best part about this device is the ability to stream things from any operating system; whether it be IOS, Android, Mac, or PC. It not only allows me to play things from my LG G4, but from my iPad Mini, and my Macbook Pro (with the widget on Google Chrome). My roommate has a Google computer and an iPhone and neither of us have had any problems. The only thing I would say could potentially be a problem is that if you're streaming something for a longer amount of time then it might timeout on your device, but continue playing on the TV. The way I fix this is to open up the app/webpage I was using and just disconnect and then reconnect or sometimes it will pop up on it's own. It's just a way to remind itself that it's doing something in the background while you're using your phone or computer for other things.

Our whole family loves this! Even our friends have decided to go buy one after seeing this set up. You get a wide variety of apps for your TV, way better than the apps that come preloaded on the Smart TVs. The apps on the TVs also look completely different and are missing some features. I always suggest to people to save the extra money and buy a good TV with a fire stick and skip over the Smart TVs. Doing this will save you almost $300 and you'll be way more satisfied.

I LOVEEEE my Roku! Its super easy to use! I like it because I used to have to watch Netflix and Hulu on my computer and plug it into the TV with an HDMI cable which got annoying if I wanted to watch something while I needed to work on something! This is perfect because it just plugs right into the back of my TV! Its also easy to move if you have more than one TV!
