So, last week our Wii died. I've tried clearing any dust out of it, but it doesn't seem to want to power back up. Since we used it mainly for streaming Netflix, I wasn't in a rush to replace it.
 
A friend had told us he had purchased a Roku device for his birthday, but wasn't really happy with it - can't remember the particulars.
 
Decided to look into Roku versus Chromecast and decided to purchase a Chromecast unit. I did remember seeing others discuss Chromecast on here a few months back and seemed to recall the impression was largely favourable.
 
We are pleased with it so far; streamed some Netflix over the weekend and, last night, streamed a drama serial we had missed last week. Simple setup and it works with both our laptop and phones.
