    "I was looking for the best media streaming device for my new TV. I found the Roku Ultra - HD and 4K UHD streaming media player. This is an awesome device. It delivers 4K content beautifully and is really easy to use. My mother frequently uses it and she loves the easy-to-use interface. The controller works great, too, and is really intuitive. It supports all the apps we use, too, and many more. Love it!"

    "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."

    "I've gone through every streaming device I have come across, from boxes to usb dongles, the whole nine yards. I have come to the conclusion that Victony dongle is the best. It streams so nice, looks really good, and no lagging or stuttering. I would check this one out if you are searching for one. "

    "Finally decided on Roku since cutting my cable. I use it with Hulu and a few other paid services because I don't really like any of the free channels that Roku offers. Works great with my Android too."

    "I moved in to a new apartment lately, and wanted to save money by not having to sign up for cable TV. I got Apple TV and connected it with my Mac. I can stream to my TV even. Now all I watch is Breaking Bad on Netflix, or This is Us on Hulu. I love this thing, it is so easy to set up, and apps come pre-installed so I don't have to worry about it."

    "There are a ton of competitive products in the "casting" space, with Chromecast, Roku, and all of the others competing to do what, to a layperson, sounds like exactly the same thing. However, as a Mac user, I think that the latest version of the original - the Apple TV 4K - still wins out. It's designed for effortless compatibility with my device, and streams all of the content seamlessly in beautiful 4K. And of course, it plugs right into iTunes, so finding content is a snap. "
