Roku 3 (2015)

In the spirit of "if it ain't broken, don't fix it," Roku added voice search to its £99 Roku 3. It also removed a couple of features from its second-best box, the £60 Roku 2, while turbocharging its response time. The Roku 2 is now just as fast as the Roku 3, and as snappy as any other streamer we've tested.

Meanwhile the features reserved for the Roku 3 all reside in the remote: voice search, point-anywhere Wi-Fi control and the headphone jack for private listening. All are pretty cool and work well, but not one is essential. If you won't use them much, and want to save 30 quid, then buying a new Roku 2 instead is a no-brainer.

JBL Flip 3

JBL's third-generation Flip wireless speaker has a more streamlined, splashproof design and better battery life (at 10 hours), while the price remains roughly the same at £89. As with all such speakers, the JBL plays any audio content from a Bluetooth-enabled source -- nearly any smartphone or tablet, and most recent computers -- so long as it's in the same room, or relatively nearby.

Amazon Kindle 2014

Yes, tablets and smartphones can double as e-readers. But the £60 Amazon Kindle has a long-lasting battery and a paper-like screen that avid readers will appreciate. And unlike more versatile devices, there won't be any calls, emails or texts to distract the reader, either.

If you're willing to spend a little more, Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite e-reader carries a list price of £119. And if you don't mind special offers, there's a £109 model.

Amazon Fire HD 6

As much as we like e-ink readers, though, an extra £20 will get you a full-fledged colour tablet. Sure, it doesn't have much storage (8GB) and it's not super-zippy, but the well-designed Fire HD 6 is one of the better options out there -- especially given its £80 price tag. It does come in a 16GB version for £20 more, and it's also worth mentioning that Amazon occasionally discounts both HD 6 models from time to time, making them even better bargains.

Apple TV

The "new" Apple TV starts at £129, but the old Apple TV, which doesn't come with the fancy voice remote or have the ability to play games, is £59.

If you're invested in the Apple universe -- own an iPhone, iPad or Mac, or you already have lots of movies, TV shows, and music on iTunes -- Apple TV is a better choice than the Roku. And even though it's three years old, Apple is keeping its box fresh with new channels every few months.

Beyerdynamic DTX 350p

Beyerdynamic makes some great high-end headphones, but lately it's been putting out some value models with great sound. The £35 on-ear DTX 350p, which comes in black or white, sounds better than a lot of headphones that cost twice the price.

Bose SoundLink Color

For a little bit more than £100, you can pick up a Bose SoundLink Colour (£110). It's doesn't perform quite as well as the £160 SoundLink Mini, but it's an attractive little Bluetooth speaker that delivers big sound for its size, is easy to tote around and recharges with a standard Micro-USB cable.
