<b>The outlook:</b>
Roku's new Streaming Stick is easily one of the most promising products of the spring. Roku's managed to pack an entire streaming box into a Chromecast-style stick, which means you get access to Roku's giant 1,200-app library. Roku also includes a standard remote, which means you don't always have to rely on a mobile device for navigation, although that's an option if you'd like. The $50 price is still more than the $35 Chromecast, but our early impression is that the Streaming Stick's more robust content offerings may be enough to justify the extra cost.</p>

Superior streaming stick for $50

We've limited the list to standalone streaming boxes, but be aware that lots of other home theater devices are competent streamers these days, from Blu-ray players to game consoles.
