Which Roku Is the Go-To? We Break It Down

Media Streamers
Roku has a lot of streamers. They range from $30 to $100 and they all do a pretty good job. Taking Disney plus Netflix, HBO Max and bringing it onto your TV. Which one is the best for you? Let's break it all down. [MUSIC] First, the candidates. On the cheap side of the spectrum is the $30 Roku Express. This player streams in HD, not 4k, and comes with a simple remote, not one of Roku's more advanced voice remotes that not only allow you to use voice control, but can point anywhere instead of having to point directly at the Roku Since this simple remote uses infrared, if you want to navigate your Roku, you're gonna have to make sure you're pointing directly at that Express. For $40 you get the Express 4k plus, this looks a lot like the regular price, but it can stream 4k HDR and it comes with the new voice remote that allows you to not only Use voice controls, but can point to anywhere instead of having to find the IR spot on the express box. At $50 is the Streaming Stick Plus, our previous go-to Roku pick. It's a dongle that plugs into your TV's HDMI port and can stream in 4K HDR. Even though it's one of the older models in Roku's lineup, it still performs pretty well. At the high end is the $100 Ultra Trump, this is a box now live streaming sticker. Goldman's Roku is most powerful player. You can play back videos in 4k HDR with Dolby Vision has an ethernet port on the back for water connectors and includes a nifty remote finder button on the actual box itself that you could press that will prey on the enhanced oyster note that it sits with this remote. This is a step up from the Porsche boat that comes with the express 4k plus where the say plus, then I can do all the regular voiceover functions that those are mostly do, but also as a speaker. So when you press this button, it can play a little beeping sound quote you find, or motive is lost in the couch. Enhanced voice remote also has two dedicated buttons that you can customise to do voice commands such as opening your max, which doesn't have a dedicated button on the bottom of the remote. So what's the for most people the $40 Express 4k Plus is probably the perfect broker is $10 cheaper than Mystery mystery, but still has much of the same functionality including the ability to shoot 4k HDR, and better voice remote shore it's not as sleek and small as the dongle that is the streaming stick plus. For Roku includes everything you need, including a piece of sticker that allows you to tuck this under behind it. I never had to see I thought to be quick opening apps and navigating interface and have no problems playing back videos in 4k HDR. The price can also handle Dolby Atmos if your soundbar supports it. Mine doesn't so I wasn't able to test it but I did notice Dolby Atmos logos appear when I was looking at content on Netflix, for example. Looking for internet. Also these buses, also one of the first modern, Roku's not an old truck to be able to work with third party micro USB adapter. I got one off of Amazon plugged it in and it worked fine. If there features of other Roku's like the ultra remote finder Should you actually can get back with the Express 40 plus 50 by Roku $30 voice remote Pro. Combining the voicemail Pro with the Express 4k was great $70 a $30 savings compared to the ultra For those looking for Dolby Vision, we'll still need to step up to the $100 old drum. But for most people, the Express 4k plus at $40 will check all the boxes.
