Google Chromecast Ultra Review: Worth the Upgrade?



The Chromecast Ultra is the latest and most expensive Chromecast, so is it worth it?

The Chromecast Ultra is the newest Chromecast device, and has a few new features that separates it from the regular Chromecast 2. Specifically, it supports 4K Ultra-HD resolution, as well as high dynamic range (HDR). Also, it has an ethernet port, so it can connect either wirelessly or wired, to be able to handle higher bandwidth content. But there’s not much else, so unless you have a TV that can take advantage of these features, it would probably make sense to just get a regular Chromecast, which does all the same stuff, except at 1080p. You can still stream movies, YouTube, and music to your TV from your phone or other devices.

    Hey there, Doubt. My TV has no HDMI port, but my A/V receiver does, is it possible to make it work through the receiver?

    It's a shame no mention of audio being mentioned. I've got a Chromecast 2, but can't get 5.1 out of it. Even though my Amp can handle DD+. I seem not be the only person having the same problem. It would have been nice to know if CC Ultra fixed this.

    YT just stopped supporting their casting APP on my Sharp AQUOS TV, is there anything I can do in terms of software to get this function back or do I need to buy a CCU?

    I have two questions:
    1) How does the AC Adapter get the signal from the ethernet cable to the Chromecast? Does it go through the usb cable? Or does it send a Wifi signal to the Chromecast?
    2) What sort of HDMI cable does the Chromecast Ultra use? 2.0, 2.0a, 2.1?

    someone help me out, I want to buy a 4K movie off YouTube but it says it wont strean it on 4K unless I have Chromecast? But why do I need that if I have YouTube on my TV already and Im able to watch other 4K videos? Do I need Chromecast Ultra to view 4K movies off youtube?

    Still not sure what to think about it.. I love having an actual remote, instead of using my giant phone for everything.

    dose the ultra work on a 1080p? Dose the quality look better on the ultra when i mirror my phone? I mean my dad just got a 4k smart tv but i have a 1080p tv and i want to mirror my cheap lg metro phone on both tvs cuz i have a app that streams movies for free. I think it's worth getting the ultra if it works on 1080p, loads better, better quality when i mirror my phone.

    The Ethernet option alone makes this a good buy.

    well, you don't buy a 4K screen to have a regular chromecast.

    Main reason I got the chromecast is because I have a google home mini and wanted to be able to give voice commands to open netflix and watch my shows. I couldn't do that with my TVs apps alone.

    In my opinion Chrome cast is good for non smart TVs, if you have a smart TV chrome cast is not needed.

  30. Pindakees

    What about the audio? Dolby Digital, DTS, ac3 and passtrough via 7.1 amp?

    You're right, ultra is overpriced and not needed as all 4k TV's already support streaming, however Chromecast is great for old dum TV's

    The chrome cast ultra has a dual wifi something which the chromcast 2 does not have. This a very important fact which not been mentioned here. if you need strong streaming like I do it is worth it less buffering!!!!

    I've done speed tests using the "Internet Speedcast" android app and my Chromecast Ultra wired direct through the ethernet is getting 75mbps download speed while my other two gen 2 Chromecasts which only have wifi are 12mbps and 3.2mbps. To me the ability to hardwire this device is worth it alone and I don't even have a 4k tv to plug it into yet.

    how does the ethernet adaptor work, does it make a hotspot that it conects too or does it pass the ethernet through the micro usb?

    Chromecast ultra does not work as standalone with only the cable utp. You always needs WiFi. Big problem is also it turns never of when you put the tv off standby is 20 Watt and working 45 Watt By chromecast 1 and 2 usb power true tv stops when you put the tv off, less power save 20 Watt hour. Fore year is that 175,2 Kilo Watt x € 0,25 = € 43,8 year.only for standby
