Chromecast users will know how much the little HDMI kicks ass, but some users don't like the fact of using a Wi-Fi connection. Well, Google very quietly launched a new wired Ethernet adapter for Chromecast, which sold out nearly instantly.

The new accessory plugs into the USB port on your Chromecast, and then you plug an Ethernet cable into the power plug, and voila - wired Chromecast. Google sells the adapter for $15, and with the Chromecast priced at $35, you're able to scoop both of them up for a wired Chromecast experience for $50.

Google has already sold out of the adapter, with no word on when there'll be more stock, or if it will be made available outside of the United States.
