Roku's latest Streaming Stick is everything you'd ever want from a streaming device. It's fast, has a rich library of content and it's easy to move around the house. The only problem is that there's no 4K support.

Pros
  • Fast performance thanks to a quad-coreCPU
  • Portable and easy to set up
  • Mobile app packs in a lot of useful features
  • Tons of streaming options
Cons
  • No 4K support
  • No headphone jack in the included remote
