This is the only Fire Stick that can play 4K HDR video, and at the same price as the standard non-4K stick, it’s well worth the investment even if you don’t already have a 4K TV.

There’s a lot to like about Google’s new Chromecast with Google TV, including a revamped user interface, 4K HDR with Dolby Vision support, a true remote control, and great integration with the Google Assistant. In an exclusive deal for the Google Store, the search giant is bundling its normally $ 50 streamer with a six-month standard Netflix plan for $ 90. The deal is available to both new and existing Netflix subscribers.

The Fire TV Cube combines a voice-controlled Alexa speaker, a Fire TV 4K video streamer and a universal remote control in one device. If you enjoy using your voice to control the TV – not to mention other devices in your Alexa-friendly household – it may well be worth the plunge into this interesting all-in-one that starts at $ 120 is lowered to $ 100. Note that this is the latest (2019) version that has added some nice improvements since our first evaluation in 2018.

The 2020 Roku Ultra offers a significant upgrade over other Roku devices with a remote finder and a wired Ethernet port. The picture quality is as good as always thanks to Dolby Vision support and thanks to the super-fast processor it is also faster than other Ultras. For $ 90, it’s a decent deal.

Cheap and foolproof, the Roku Express has all of the joy of Roku’s platform, but in a crazy little package. It comes with a remote control, micro USB and HDMI ports, an HDMI cable, and a small sticker to keep it in place.

At the same price as the Ultra on a normal day, the Streambar combines a powerful 4K streamer with a conversational soundbar. It even throws in bluetooth for a good measure.

This is a simple Roku that can meet all of your streaming needs. It’s not as fast as the Streaming Stick Plus and doesn’t include Roku’s more useful advanced remote control (which has a microphone for voice control and doesn’t have to point you directly at the TV). It also lacks 4K support and new features like AirPlay. It only costs $ 17, however, and should be fine for basic streaming. The SE is pretty much identical to the $ 25 Roku Express, except for the white color.

The Roku Premiere isn’t as good as the Roku Express 4K Plus – it lacks the voice remote control and TV controls – but if you don’t care about those features or the Plus is out of stock by the time you read that, Premiere still has one solid 4K HDR streamer value.

Although the Roku Express 4K Plus is our new favorite, the Roku Streaming Stick Plus 4K is still great. The two cost the same and are basically identical except for the design, although the Express 4K Plus supports an optional Ethernet adapter. Both offer hundreds of apps, the excellent Roku interface, a rugged remote control with voice control, as well as 4K HDR and Apple AirPlay.
