Now also available in the Netherlands. But I think I'm fine for now with my RaspberryPi with XBMC on it.

I bought it for my Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 - I have bought 3 different kinds of MHL cable and can get none to output video. I thought id save money and buy a no brand MHL cable rather then the official but I think I ended up spending more in the long run. I like the flexibility of chromecast though as I have all Google devices.

Just picked one up, very smooth, it runs a lot of apps in the background, sending the output to the TV. What's surprising is how little battery drain effect this produces, CPU resources are well handled too. I can easily browse the web while a video plays on the TV. Could also be a convenient way to run a tablet or phone as a mini Android games console. Nice!
