Roku Express (2019)

 

If you still have a 1080p TV, the Roku Express is one of the most economical ways to breathe new life into it with streaming apps and services.

Inexpensive. Lots of streaming services.

Remote needs direct line of sight with the streamer. No 4K.

Bottom Line: If you still have a 1080p TV, the Roku Express is one of the most economical ways to breathe new life into it with streaming apps and services.

Roku Express (2019) review: An inexpensive streamer with a cheap remote

 

The 2019 version of the Roku Express would be a great cheap streamer if it's remote didn't cut corners.

Solid performance for a cheap streamer ; Straightforward software with a broad app selection ; Lots of free content (with ads) to watch

Remote lacks TV or volume controls and can feel unresponsive ; Software isn't helpful for discovery or tracking watched shows ; Outdated single-band Wi-Fi could be a problem for some users

On the software side, the Roku Express is functionally similar to other Roku players. The main menu presents a grid of streaming video apps alongside a list of other functions, such as search, the app store, and a selection of free ad-supported content.
