Roku Streaming Stick, MHL (3400, 3420)

For all of its acclaims, the one thing that makes us cautious about recommending it is the $50 sticker price attached to it. Even though it costs half as much to pick up compared to the Roku 3, the $50 cost is still higher than that of its main rivals....

TiVo Roamio OTA

TiVo's latest is the best over-the-air DVR ever made, but the $15 monthly service fee (combined with the lack of a Lifetime Service option) means you're trading a low upfront price for some high long-term costs.
