The Roku Streaming Stick reviewed here was released in October 2017, and it remains our top pick for the best video streamer you can buy under $50 in the US if you don't need compatibility with 4K HDR video. That said, if there's any chance you'll be upgrading to a 4K TV in the near future, it's worth spending as little as $10 to $20 more on the step-up model, 기생충 토렌트 the Roku Streaming Stick Plus. 

On the other hand, if you want the absolute most affordable Roku streaming experience, opt for the Roku Express 2017 (for HDMI TVs) or the Roku Express Plus 2017 (for older analog TVs with only composite yellow/red/white AV inputs).

The original review of the 2017 Roku Streaming Stick -- first published Dec. 15, 2017, and otherwise mostly unchanged -- follows.


These days just about every TV above 49 inches or $300 has 4K resolution and probably high dynamic range, too, so if you're buying a streaming device for a newer TV, chances are you want one that does that stuff. My favorite this year is the $70 Roku Streaming Stick Plus. 

But let's say you don't care about 4K streaming or HDR. Maybe you want to connect that new streamer to an older or smaller TV. Or maybe $70 is just too expensive for 4K's admittedly minor boost in video quality. Or perhaps your TV's HDR kinda sucks. 

For you, 2K SDR dude, the cheapest option is the Roku Express, a device that's packed with all the typical Roku goodness: the industry's best selection of apps, awesome search and the simplest menu system. But the better option is the Streaming Stick.
