Roku Streaming Stick 2016 review - CNET "The Good The $50 Roku Streaming Stick is one of the least expensive devices to stream video from Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO, Sling TV and other online services. It's just as responsive as other devices -- meaning it's lightning -fast -- and an updated app lets you listen via your phone's headphone jack. Roku's ecosystem offers more apps, better search and more customization than any other. The Bad No Ethernet port means it only works via Wi-Fi, not a wired connection. Some app interfaces are less polished than on rival devices. Private listening feature loses lip-sync with some Bluetooth headphones. The Bottom Line The new Roku Streaming Stick is the best value in streaming -video hardware, period." - C/NET

Roku 3 is 5x faster and has a motion controller for games. Roku 3 (2015) review - C/NET "The Good The Roku 3 has an updated remote with voice search, which works very well; as well as the unique headphone jack for private listening. The Roku platform delivers more apps than competitors, constant updates and doesn't favor one content provider over others. Its interface is lightning-quick, fully customizable and dead simple to use. Search is the best on the market, hitting numerous services and arranging results by price. The Bad The cheaper Streaming Stick is just as fast as Roku 3 and offers all of Roku's platform advantages, and you can add the voice-search and headphone jack remote for $30 more. The Fire TV offers a wider list of games. The Bottom Line Voice search makes the Roku 3 the best video streamer in its price class, but it's no longer as good a value as the Streaming Stick. Then in 2016 it released a new Streaming Stick, which costs just $50. The Stick is our new number one recommendation because it's just as fast and the others and offers all of the basic Roku goodness. But if you don't mind spending more, the Roku 3's voice search and headphone jack for private listening might be worth it. Both of those extras are available on the Stick too, but you have to use Roku's phone or tablet app instead of the remote. And if you really want to use a dedicated remote instead of an app for those features, you can actually buy one from Roku's site (currently $30), pair it with the Stick and it works perfectly. It's actually cheaper to do that than buy a Roku 3. The Roku 3 does offer one extra not found on the Stick--a wired Ethernet connection--so if your Wi-Fi is spotty, you might need to get the box anyway. That said, most Wi-Fi networks should be fine for streaming." - C/NET


Roku 4 review - CNET - The Roku 4 is the best way to get the most 4K video today, but isn't worth the extra money for most buyers. "The Good The Roku 4 delivers 4K video, promising the best-quality video streams available today. It has more 4K-capable apps than other devices and makes 4K TV shows and movies easy to find. The remote has voice search, a unique headphone jack for private listening, and a finder function in case it goes missing in the couch cushions. Roku's platform is the best, with the most apps, comprehensive search results arranged by price, and a simple interface that doesn't favor one service over others. The Bad Other devices like Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV offer more capable voice interactions beyond keyword search, and more robust gaming. Most 4K TVs have similar 4K apps already built-in, 4K content is still scarce, new 4K movies are expensive, and image quality with 4K streaming isn't a big improvement over standard HD streams. If you don't want 4K, other Rokus are a better value. The Bottom Line The Roku 4 is the best way to get the most 4K video today, but isn't worth the extra money for most buyers." - C/NET
