    "The Roku Ultra is really the best of all of the add on boxes that isn't a HTPC. The Ultra's added ethernet is greatly appreciated, it makes streaming 4k content to the player much better than relying on wireless."

    "This is one of the best known and liked steaming devices on the market. It is a great price for the sort of features and size that it offers. This is one of the top choices I would pick or recommend when searching for this sort of product. There are cheaper options, which is the only caveat to this particular unit."

    "To be honest I can't say I'm a fan of Roku. I decided to give it a try after a friend recommended it, but just ended up going back to my Apple TV. The interface is clunky and not many services support Roku."

    "One of the better devices I've used, but it does have similar features I would rather not have. I think the best part of this media player is the convenient buttons and easy to set up box. I like the connections that could be made with it, but it still is a bit bulky. I expected it to be smaller from the pictures. This was my first AGPTEK player so I didn't expect too much. The SD card input made it easy to view media such as photos and videos I've taken on trips. Not bad for the price. "

    "I have a TV at work for presentations. The problem I had was I needed to cast things from my phone instead of using the slow and old company laptop. I got permission to buy the Baile WiFi Display Dongle. It has made my meetings much easier because I can present everything right away and not deal with a ancient laptop. It has really made my job a little easier."
