Google Nexus Player review


Android TV has landed, but this is far from the smoothest of arrivals

Slick interface ; Speedy operation ; It's also a Chromecast

Massive lack of apps ; Too little storage if you're going to use it for games ; Doesn't do enough that the Chromecast doesn't already do

The Nexus Player’s good ideas are outweighed by the current lack of content.

Replaces others


Have all the perks of Roku box. Plus can download more apps and watch anything on the net you could ever want. Only down side is the controller, get a bluetooth keyboard with mouse pad to unlock all control features.

" If you're invested in Google tech and accounts and want a means to cast your content from your Android phones and tables to your TV you can't go wrong with this device. However, it needs to go someway to enabling you to become a full-on cord-cutter. "
