    "The Roku Express is actually really nice for the price. I wouldn't say it's the best media streaming box just because there are some really fleshed out ones at higher price points, but HD streaming at this price and being this portable is hard to beat."

    "Roku seems to offer features for having a good experience of watching TV wireless. The price is also affordable for an average home setting. But I would prefer Apple TV. It is of course much more expensive compared to Roku, but as they say, the higher the price, the better quality. Apple TV can also recognize the voice search through Siri which is just an advanced feature on top. I think i would rather pay a bit more than getting into product hardship over time."

    "The Roku is the premier competition for apple TV and I would argue that it's even better than apple TV if you don't live in the apple ecosystem .It's much more open allowing you to view many different bits of content. Very easy to set up and use as well. "

    "This device is obviously pitched against Google's Chromecast since they're at the same price point. Depending on your router and your internet speed, you might be pretty happy with this device, but it's certainly not best in class, and some users report issues which may or may not be directly related to the device. But as for me, I bought other Rokus which have ethernet connections to my router and thus take the WiFi out of the picture. This device will not work with the fastest WiFi network, so you may be subject to pauses that could be very annoying."

    "Roku has been in the streaming game for a long time, and their experience has kept them a step ahead of their competitors. Dollar for dollar, the Roku Express is the best device to stream Netflix on TV. It's portable, simple to set up and use, and blows away Amazon's Fire TV and the Apple TV with the number of available channels. The only drawback is that the Roku Express does not display 4K content, but for 720p and 1080p, there really is no reason to buy any other streaming media player."

    "Roku Express is a discount streaming device. It is available from Amazon $39.95. This discount model offers all the same streaming apps that the more expensive versions have, but it doesn't stream 4k or HDR. It also has a smaller processor that has had a few issues with overheating. It still gets the job done but I'd suggest spending another 15 dollars and getting a better model."

    "I have a Roku Express and it's fine, but it doesn't have the features that I expect for a streaming device. The biggest problem is the express doesn't support 4k content, so if that's a concern, consider picking up something that offers 4k/hdr playback, especially for all the new netflix shows that support the newer standard."

    "I've been a Roku user and fan since the first generation devices, and frankly, I'm amazed at what they have to offer these days. I picked up one of these for my aging parents when their smart TV began having trouble staying online. They had no trouble adapting to the Roku and they very much liked the price. My dad complains about the remote having 'stupid buttons' -- I think he means the ones for services he doesn't use, but then, he tends to gripe about remotes anyway. Easy to set up and fairly user-friendly. I might go for this model when I need to replace my Roku 3, unless there's something newer and better available from the company by then. "

    "I'm already a big fan of Roku, so when I saw this, I decided to give it a try. One thing to keep in mind, this one is 720p and 1080p, no 4K. Works for me, all of my TVs are 1080p. It's small size is great for when we go on trips. All you need is the USB cable as it can draw power from it, no need to bring the power supply. In a hotel room just plug it up, connect to the WiFi, and I have all my Netflix, Hulu, etc. for relaxing in the room at the end of the day. Since it draws power from the TV, it turns on and off with the TV. This is great for when I'm going to bed at night, I just set the sleep timer on the TV, and when the timer turns the TV off, the Roku also turns off. I read reviews stating that it was slow, so I was a little worried, but that is not the case. Yes, since it is powered by the TV, it takes a minute for the Roku to power up and be ready to go. But let's be realistic, it's like 30 second or so, not a big deal. Once up and running, works just as well as my other Rokus. It comes with a strip of Velcro so you can attach it to your TV. As with other Roku models, you can control it through an app on your phone, which works via the WiFi, not line of sight. So, you can basically attach it to the back of the TV, plug the included USB cable into the USB port on the TV for power, connect the HDMI cable, and you're all set. I'm super happy with the Roku Express and should I need another Roku, this is the one I will buy, I highly recommend it. Enjoy!"

    "I used my PS4 for a couple of years to access Netflix, and I wanted something more streamlined. This fit the bill and more. It has the Netflix button right from the remote as well as Slingshot and Hulu, If only it had such a button for Amazon Prime videos it would be a grand slam but for the price, it's exactly what I wanted.
