    They restocked! I just impulse bought this even though I probably will have moved into my new place by then where I don't think I'll be having any wifi issues xD. Oh well, still good to have on hand at $15 with free shipping!

    My Chromecast gets a wonderful signal in my basement, but thanks for reminding me that I keep forgetting to make a patch cable to connect my Smart TV that sits right by the router. It's wifi performance has been less than ideal. Doesn't always connect right away, which is a real pain when you're turning it on specifically for netflix or similar.

    I probably would have jumped on this when I first got my Chromecast. But since I got my Nexus Player I don't use it anymore. It's just been sitting in a drawer
