Engadget Review

The Roku Ultra is the company's fastest streaming player yet, and it throws in just about every feature you can imagine. The only major downside is that Roku's $100 Premiere+ includes most of the capabilities you'd actually need.

Pros
  • Incredibly fast
  • 4K/HDR content looks fantastic
  • Speedy networking
Cons
  • Not much more capable than Roku's $100 player
  • Roku's interface is dated
