We love Roku devices for their streamlined, intuitive interfaces and "best-in-class" remotes, as well as the single-button support for top streaming services, such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video.
We've broken down all three for you below, so you can make the best choice for your home.
The best deals on Roku streaming stick devices
Roku Express 4K+ for $29.99 (Save $10): With this device, you'll get high-quality streaming on a budget with easy set-up and the familiar Roku interface fans know and love. As an upgrade over the regular Express, you'll also get voice search and volume control, though you'll want to note that the downgraded Roku Express we tested also capped out at 1080p video.
Roku Streaming Stick+ for $39.99 (Save $10): This compact streaming stick, which is most like the famed Amazon Fire Stick 4K ($39.99), offers the kind of speedy performance that you would get from the brand's full-sized streaming box, including 4K and HDR support (there's no Dolby vision, however). You'll also get the inclusion of Roku's top-notch voice remote, albeit without the headphone jack.
Roku Ultra for $69.99 (Save $30): Ranked as our best streaming device, the über-fast Roku Ultra comes with the best remote we've ever had the pleasure of using—there's even a headphone jack for private listening. There's an app-first interface that we consistently find to be among the easiest to use, too.
