REVIEW

Bigstream

While it sounds like a great device on paper, the Bigstream suffers from numerous performance issues that ultimately make for a below average experience.

Google Chromecast
REVIEW

Google Chromecast

Google's $35 Chromecast stick is a cheap and easy way to add streaming video and music to your TV, but it still isn't as fully featured as similarly priced Roku boxes.

Boxee TV

Boxee TV is a radical take on an over-the-air DVR that uploads, stores, and retrieves your recordings from the cloud, with no storage limits.

Netgear NeoTV ( NTV300)

The Netgear Neo TV NTV300 is one of the cheapest streaming boxes on the market, but it doesn't offer any compelling distinguishing features compared with the Roku.

REVIEW

Amazon Fire TV Stick

While it doesn't match the app selection or search capabilities of Roku, Amazon's Fire TV Stick's solid performance and mastery of Amazon content make it easily worth the $40 price.

Roku 1
REVIEW

Roku 1

The Roku 1 offers the same excellent experience that's found on other Roku boxes at a new low price, but there aren't many reasons to choose it over the new Streaming Stick or step-up Roku boxes.
