    "My previous device was a generic Android box and I was quite satisfied with it, but after using this, I don't think I'll be able to go back. I cannot believe how flawlessly this thing handles 4K video. Plus, it's extremely cheap. I consider this my best purchase this year."

    "As a family we decided to cut the ties to our cable company, and ordered the Nvidia to help us cast our movies to our TV. We watch alot of Netflix, and this has been a godsend! Love the Nvidia."

    "If you don't have built in apps on your TV and want to watch Netflix I highly recommend the Roku stick. I have 3 of them and can't imagine doing without them now."

    "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."

    "Netflix has started offering media in 4k, but of course you need the equipment to view it. My laptop doesn't have a 4k screen, so I have to use my TV. I got the Roku Ultra because it'll allow you to actually watch Netflix in 4k. However, there is something wrong with quality control or the software of this device. I've been having audio issues since day one, and I've returned one of them and I'm now having the same problem on my second one. The audio keeps dropping in pitch and making everything sound weird. This is just unacceptable in my opinion. Customer service has not been helpful at all. I would recommend a different device to watch Netflix with!"

    "I love the ease of use when it comes to the Chromecast. I first bought one when I was staying with a friend who didn't have a device other than a computer to watch Netflix. All I had to do was plug the Chromecast into her TV and it was ready to go!"

    "This is a horrible solution. It is a one star rated blu ray player that has streaming off of Ebay. I would have enjoyed an article or ad listing more than one and would have to include the Amazon Firestick. "
