Maybe you held off buying a Chromecast, even though it's totally awesome, or perhaps you just need another one. Either way, you can pick one up right now on Groupon for $25. It's refurbished, but $10 off isn't bad.

2014-08-20 14_58_58-Google Chromecast (Refurbished) Deal of the Day _ Groupon

The Chromecast was cool when it came out, but it got downright awesome when developers were finally turned loose on the device. Just plug it into an HDMI port, add power, and you're done. This unit has been repaired by Google, and it comes with a 1 year warranty, which is pretty awesome for a refurb device. There's a limit of three per person, with up to two more gift purchases. Limited quantity and all that, so hop to it.

    Fun with ads! Sorry Google Ads, I've got a better deal now!

      i know I am the only one, but I dont see a use for the chromecast. Can someone convince me otherwise.

      • Bill S

        It's only useful if you want to screencast from your android tablet or phone to a tv and since it's so small you can take it with you anywhere and use it anywhere there a hdmi port really

        • Idle Time

          And a wifi network.

        I bought one and my gf was saying "this is useless, I won't ever use it". I think she uses it more than me right now. It's one of those things that YES you can live without it, but once you have one you can't imagine the life without it.

        • Ihavenewnike

          Well me personally, I have my pc connected to my TV with wireless peripherals. Also have a game system connected.

          • Nathan J

            Same here. If you have a PC connected to your TV, then it's game over for all these little doohickeys.

            Chromecast is just the cheapest of the solutions for those who have their TV far away from their PC. It's a race to the bottom. How can we make the cheapest streaming solution? Chromecast is the answer, provided you have a smartphone or tablet. They aren't bad. I imagine they're pretty good. But if you have a PC, that just trumps all.

            And that's why the Raspberry Pi is so important. It's not much more than the Chromecast, and it can run Linux.

        If you don't own a console and don't want to connect your PC to your tv, this is just as good of a way as anything else to watch netflix sinces it way cheaper and works as good. Also I like the youtube queue, I can look for more videos while still having it fulls creen.

      • northstar17

        Its much easier to use than a console or other TV box since the remote is your tablet/phone and much better than a traditional remote. If you sit at your PC or use a laptop a lot, then its not useful.

        My TV isn't hooked up to any computer, and stretching an HDMI cable across the room is too much work and might look horrible.

        Voilà the Google Chromecast, making me able to watch series by a couple of taps on my phone screen. I never thought I'd love simplicity this much (I only got it two weeks ago and I already love it).

      • ianmccully

        Google my name under Chromecast and you will see why this is a great device to watch films no matter what format they are in thanks Ian .

  • xero1

    Refurb Chromecast? 0.o Just rest and done? I guess they mean used...

  • BFRC

    Not outside US. Bummer.

    • ianmccully

      What do u mean thanks

  • tlogank

    Anyone know if you would still qualify for the Google Music 90-day free trial with this?

    • Bill S

      It should work as the offer is based on your account and I think the chromecasts unique id number and as long as you've never had Google Music before.
