Amazon Fire TV
REVIEW

Amazon Fire TV

A great media streamer that will suit you perfectly if you buy everything from Amazon. If not, Roku makes better value boxes.

Google Chromecast
REVIEW

Google Chromecast

Technically, the Chromecast is a wonder to behold. If all you want is a cheap way to get iPlayer and Netflix, it's a good choice, but it needs more content before it becomes a must-buy for most.

Popcorn Hour C-300
REVIEW

Popcorn Hour C-300

The Popcorn Hour C-300 has excellent video file format support and allows you to browse through your video files by poster art. But its line-up of smart apps is relatively poor, it has buggy software and it costs way too much.

Crystal Acoustics MediaMatchBox
REVIEW

Crystal Acoustics MediaMatchBox

Crystal Acoustics' MediaMatchBox media player can deal with pretty much any format you throw it at. It's ideal if you want to add file playback capabilities to a TV or take your downloads on the road.

Toshiba StorE TV+
REVIEW

Toshiba StorE TV+

The Toshiba StorE TV+ is a competent multimedia streamer with an ill-judged interface that few would want to live with. Despite broad file-format support and a capacious hard drive, it's frustrating to use.
