    "It's a little bulkier than some models, but it's still pretty easy to use and I like that the HD is so crisp. It'd be nice if you could control it with your phone instead of just the remote it comes with."

    "If you like Apple products, Apple TV 4K is the right media streamers for you. If you are one of Google/Android fans, you should go with either amazon or google products since compatibility matters. Apple TV 4K does the job in streaming including iTunes. "

    "This streamer stands out among the others. It has a capability to stream in 4K. This technology is still new, and the device itself is kind of pricey. When I was looking for a new streaming device, I tried this one, but was not quite satisfied. I felt it did not live up to its price points. I still have it, and it is easy enough to use, but I think I will return it for something else."

    "I love the Fire TV Stick and use it every day to stream Amazon Prime shows but also Hulu and Netflix. Now, the voice search is really good but it's not flawless, for it sometimes doesn't include stuff on other apps like Netflix and Hulu, but overall, it's not bad."
