The all-new Fire TV Stick 4K costs £50 and comes equipped with Dolby Vision and HDR10+ video and Dolby Atmos audio, which promise higher video and audio quality on compatible TVs and audio systems. No Roku streamer currently has Dolby Vision or HDR10+, making this a contender for best streaming stick for the money.
We already loved this little £25 video streamer, which turns any HDMI-equipped TV into a gateway to online entertainment bliss: Netflix, Amazon, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, and literally hundreds of other streaming channels. Get the 4K model if your TV is so-equipped; otherwise, this cheaper version does the job nicely.
Embrace the mobile lifestyle with the £30 Chromecast video streamer. Connect it to any TV and use your phone as the remote control for services such as YouTube, Netflix and many more. Just note that it doesn't offer Amazon Video -- and it isn't available on Amazon, either.
The Chromecast Audio isn't a wireless speaker in and of itself, but this £30 Wi-Fi gadget adds streaming audio to any old stereo. It offers universal compatibility with Android phones, and some (but not all) iOS apps can stream to it also.
Similar to the Anker Soundbuds Slim, the XFree Color is an in-ear wireless sports headphone that sounds good and fits securely, for £23. As its name implies, it's available in a few different trim colour options.
While the third-generation Echo Dot still doesn't sound great, it does sound better than its predecessor and has a more refined design. Once again its list price is £49.99 but be on the lookout for those Echo Dot flash sales.
The JBL Clip 2 can't respond to your voice, but this little waterproof Bluetooth speaker sounds great for its size and it's a worthy gift for anyone who does a lot of traveling. The newer Clip 3, which plays louder and has a little more bass, costs £50, while its older sibling is now generally sold at closer to £40.
The £40 BioLite PowerLight Mini is a handy lantern, bike light and charger all in one. You clip it to a pocket or strap, or mount it to your bike (mount included) and its 1,350-mAh USB rechargeable battery provides up to 52 hours of light. It can also give your phone a backup boost. Lighting modes include white lantern, red night vision, red and white strobe and white point light. It's a great choice for eco-minded folks who enjoy camping or other outdoor activities.
JBL has upgraded its smallest Bluetooth speaker, the Go 2, with improved sound and full waterproofing. It may not sound great but it sounds impressive for such a small speaker. Available in multiple colour options for £30.
