    After reading up on bestbuy unboxed, it looks like a lot of people have mistakenly not been given the netflix code. I put a email in, so hopefully tomorrow I'll get my code. Wife already has a netflix account, it'd be nice to save her three months worth

    You should look to see if the stores in your area have any. I live in a major metropolitan area, and there are several best buys near that have chromecast in stock. You cannot buy the chromecast online for in store pickup, but you can search the store inventory in your area.

    Dude there told me they stock the display with around 10 or 12 before opening if a shipment comes in that morning, and they're gone by noon or 1:00 pm. They've been OOS the last couple days but said a shipment is "in transit".

    Called a few other Bay Areas BBs, same story - OOS.

    I was just at the Best Buy here in Tampa, about a mile from my house, and while they had them in stock they did not include the Netflix promotion. I specifically asked them to check on that and they said it wasn't included. I was going to buy a second one if I could have gotten that promotion but didn't want the second one bad enough to pay full price so I passed.

    I lucked out big time.
    Originally, I wasn't going to get a CC since I have 2 Rokus but I thought it would be a cool idea to cast (using the Chrome browser) my NFL Sunday Ticket sub on our non-DirecTV hooked up TV where my wife can watch TV on our big TV.
    So I checked BestBuy.com for instore availability, none in my area had them, so I ordered from Google.
    Later that day, I again checked BB, and the store I had driven by earlier in the day, had it. Crap, figured I missed my chance.
    Then 2 days later, I checked again, and another BB in another area had them. I had to work and didn't have time to go (45 minute drive) but I knew my father-in-law had to take my daughter to a doctor's appt.
    I printed out the page from BB.com and gave him that and the money. I was hoping they weren't going to sell out again.
    Nope, he got it, and the 3 free months of Netflix, (Thanks BB), and I canceled my Google order.
    It is a cool device, love casting YouTube, which the Roku can't do out of the box and using Chrome for web video.

    My Chromecast from Best Buy is sitting at the house. I finally just cancelled my Amazon order after a month of waiting.

    I guess i don't get the Chromecast thing. I see it would be useful if you don't have a Roku, AppleTV or smart TV -- which I am sure is still a large chunk of the population -- but I bet most of you guys on here already have at least one of those. The only exception being Roku, which doesn't have YouTube.

    It doesn't appear that the CC can mirror or extend your desktop or tablet screen, only Netflix, Youtube or Google Play movies. Is that right? What else is it capable of casting?

    With AppleTV, it will mirror your screen or connect to your iOS devices to show pictures or movies taken on your phone. Can CC do that, but natively for Android devices? That would be worthwhile for my wife's Note 2.

    With Roku, you can access many more channels, like Amazon Prime, Hulu Plus and many others. Can CC do it, or is it planned for the future?

    I am not trying to threadcrap at all, I'm just curious how you guys are using these. If I already have AppleTV and Roku, would there be any additional functionality to buying a CC?

    You're correct....you're not miss much here with CC if you already have AppleTV and Roku.

    However, it's cheaper then any of those you already have so why not get it and wait for the future for this device.
