    "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."

    "I have been using Roku for years now and it's still one of the easiest and reliable device when it comes to streaming. It's fast, straight forward and response very well. You will get many channels, more than you can watch in your lifetime and get great pictures. You can cut the cable and what you would pay for 1 month subscription for your cable, you can get this Roku box. Do not get Amazon fire, as they are infamous for closing account and you will lose uses of all Amazon devices as well. "

    "I absolutely love the fire tv stick. I've got 4 of my own on all tv's and I've bought at least 4 more for family and friends. I canceled cable after getting this which saves lots of money. If you are someone who is not home all day all you need is this, it has all of the shows and you can run your other apps on it like netflix, hbo."
