    Anyone out there using one of these? I have an older Chromecast setup in both of my main viewing areas and am now thinking of checking out the Ultra rather than spending the $$ on a Nvidia Shield.

    From what I've read, Amazon is coming out with a new Fire that will do 4K at 60fps and HDR soon too.

    I've read very little positive regarding the Chromecast Ultra.

    I've not heard much good about the Chromecast Ultra.... or let's say I've read mostly where folks were having some sort of consistent issues. I would probably stick with the proven Shield or perhaps Fire... as it got good reviews short of the 4K HDR missing, which will apparently be rectified soon.

    I intend to wait on the Fire.
