Roku Streaming Stick Review

 

Streaming media sticks have shown us that they can be versatile. One of them in particular, the Roku Streaming Stick, seems to be an attractive option for those who don't have the budget to pick up the Roku 3, but want something that offers nearly the...

Diversified apps selection ; Simple operation ; Smartphone app integration

Sluggish loading apps and content ; Predictable design ; Simple style menu system

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....

The Best Media Streamers

 

The Roku Streaming Stick is the best media streamer for most people, with the same speeds and content as Roku 2—plus new features—for less money.

The Roku Streaming Stick is our pick because it offers the best selection of streaming content, a fast and responsive interface, and an updated remote control. It offers the best cross-service, platform-agnostic search to help you find what you want,...

Review of the Roku Streaming Stick

 

Roku, a maker of TV set-top boxes that stream video from the Internet, is now offering the option of eschewing its boxes altogether.

The Roku Streaming Stick is a simple-to-use, inexpensive device that provides access to a large selection of streaming videos from the Internet and other digital media from mobile devices. For those few people that happen to have an MHL-equipped TV or...

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

Good picture and sound ; Features are plentiful and versatile

Power supply arrangement could be neater ; Chunky design may not fit smaller spaces ; Operation is not nearly as slick as its best rivals

Not the smoothest operator around, but the Roku Streaming Service has a good bag of tricks

Roku Streaming Stick review

 

A great media streamer at a low price with plenty of content, but it can be a bit sluggish

Unfortunately, we found the Streaming Stick a little sluggish when navigating between screens, with occasional slow transitions and animations. Some channels were also slow to start. This is a real shame, as one of the best things about regular Roku...

Roku Streaming Stick Review

 

Roku's new little streaming stick is certainly a competitor to Chromecast but it does distinguish itself with further-reaching app support and a proper...

A cinch to set up ; User Interface is clean and responsive ; Lots of really good streaming services ; Spotify Support ; Casting abilities ; A very good media streamer too ; Remote App is excellent ; Portable and well priced

Might be troublesome to install tidily ; Still some major streaming services we'd like to see added

The Roku Streaming Stick is compact, certainly, but it may still be large enough to protrude from the edge of your TV if you’re using a side-facing HDMI port. In fact, the device presents a few installation challenges, if you value tidiness and/or...

Works great straight out of the box.

 

It worked great out of the box. One thing I didn't see was that the TV remote works for the Roku stick. Once I figured that out, it was great.

Roku Stick

 

I like the way you can pair this with your cell phone. It operates much faster and the display lights up it the dark. I have a Roku 4 and a Roku 2, all operate the same.

Small size - Good function

 

This is a good fit for places where space is at a minimum. It isn't as fast as a Roku box but it gets the job done.
