I still think that full on mini PCs are better for an overall media consumption experience since those devices are stand alone and don't rely on some other device to bring the content. These standalone devices are not always as easy to use, and some require quite a bit of setup. They often have their quirks too. The Chromecast is hands down the easiest plug and play device for getting content from the web to your TV. It is pretty versatile too. For the most part I can cast just about any web video, and of course the most important services like Netflix and Youtube work perfectly. I bet you didn't know there are hundreds of full length 80s and 90s films on youtube You could easily cancel your cable subscription with a device like the Chromecast.
If you have somehow missed out on the revolution that is the Chromecast and are ready to buy yours, or maybe you love yours like I love mine and you are ready to buy one for each TV in your house you will want to hit up the Groupon linke below. Groupon is currently selling refurbed units for only $20 which is a $15 discount! If refurbished scares you just know that refurbished normally means open box or devices that were returned for reason other than defect that have been tested by the manufacturer. This deal will only be available for a short period of time. There have already been more than 1,000 sold!
