Google Chromecast Ultra Review

 

The 3-Minute Google Chromecast Ultra Review

Streaming Addicts Rejoice

By Graeme Messina | January 07, 2019

The Specifics:

Features & Design: 4/5 ● Performance: 4/5 ● Value: 4/5 ● Battery Life 4/5

The Best:

Google’s original Chromecast was a real hit with consumers and it redefined the way many of us started enjoying our favourite shows and videos. Google took things further with the easy and intuitive way in which users could share pictures and other content on the TV. The new model now features 4K capabilities so your media will really look good.

The Bugs:

The main issue with this device is that it has no remote control. Like none, but that doesn’t mean that your phone doesn’t do a good job of controlling things without a dedicated remote control, it just would have been a nice inclusion. There is also no real user interface to speak of on the device because your phone or computer is the navigation system and the Chromecast Ultra is the output. Also, there’s no native Amazon video support, which is a deal breaker for some.

Is it for you?

If you have a really nice smart TV with a built in android player, then you might already have casting capabilities with some apps anyway. But if you are like most people with slightly older TVs, then you will find that the Chromecast Ultra will add a lot of functionality to your TV.

Meet the Google Chromecast Ultra

The new Google Chromecast Ultra is one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, 4K/HDR streaming solution on the market today. It now has a built in Ethernet connector so those with patchy Wi-Fi can take full advantage of this unit’s network capabilities. Google Home integration is standard with this device, so if you plan on building your smart home, this is a key piece of the puzzle that you’ll probably like.

What we like

The new form factor is a bit smarter than the original Google Chromecast unit’s shape was when it first launched. It looked like a giant flash drive, and very seldom plugged into the back of a TV without needing the HDMI adapter cable to help the Chromecast overcome the 90-degree requirement that many wall mounted TVs impose of HDMI connectors.

Because of the integrated cable that protrudes from the back of this unit it can be installed just about anywhere, usually out of site behind a TV. Not everyone likes to see Google devices, for some reason, so having it small enough to fit behind the TV is a bonus.

What we don’t like

This is more of an observation than a dislike, but the shape of the Chromecast Ultra really doesn’t look all that different from the older model Chromecast, the 2015 model. That’s not to say that there is anything inherently bad about retaining this shape, but with an ‘Ultra’ tag in its title you might have expected something to show you that it is the top of the range Google Chromecast.

Should you buy it?

Based on the low price alone it is very easy to recommend this device to video and casting fans. It allows you to turn your TV into a smart projector, giving you the ability to share photos, videos, movies and music with anyone that is in the room with you. The list of applications that support casting has grown since the original Chromecast, so you will certainly find something useful to do with one of these units.

  • The Good :
    Small Size, Easy to Use, Very Cheap for a 4K Streamer
  • The Bad :
    Looks Just Like a Normal Chromecast, No Remote
Our score:
4 / 5
