    Just got mine 3 days early. Setup up is an absolute breeze. 15 minutes after getting it I am now watching Breaking Bad. Seriously, this thing should kill Apple TV at $35.

    I know casting from chrome browser is still in beta, but sound doesn't want to be sent when casting the entire desktop screen. Everything else about it is pretty awesome though and I'm sure it will get there with time.

    I have about 2 seconds of delay between the computer and chromecast for the picture, but never any sound.

    I have a delay when casting from chrome on the desktop, but audio and picture are both fine.
