    "This Roku device for media streaming is very useful. I never knew about these types of devices and always just watched on my tv. My friend bought this for me and showed me how to use it and boy was I shocked. It is very easy and fast! You can watch on your tv things that you see on your computer screen! Technology is getting great."

    "Apple TV 4k is great for streaming from your Mac to your TV. However, it is terrible if you are like most people and have a Windows TV. Skip this TV and go for something more like the Samsung or Sony 4k TVs."

    "I had an old Fire TV and thought this would be an upgrade, but the only improvement seems to be the 4K HDR. You can't add extra memory, and it's always freezing up on me. They should have done better testing on this and gotten customer feedback before putting it on the market."

    "Amazon products always work really well, and this one is no different. I had an older version of the Fire TV stick that I liked, but this one uses Alexa and works wonders. It's kind of fun being able to watch TV just by talking and without clicking around too much."

    "You do not need to configure the confirmation code when pairing with your computer. However, you must always configure the encryption key when pairing the keyboard or the numeric keypad with the computer. How to assign a confirmation code depends on the Bluetooth program on your computer. If the Bluetooth program gives you a choice of how to generate a confirmation code, let the program generate a confirmation code for you rather than making your own or not using the confirmation code. When entering a confirmation code, you will not see a response on the screen. After entering the confirmation code, you must press Enter on the keyboard or numeric keypad to complete the pairing."
