The 2016 edition of the Roku streaming stick is even better than the last.
I love Roku. I've replaced all my set top boxes with Roku units. I was using Roku 3 and 4's but this streaming stick is just as fast, has the same video quality and is a lot smaller/easier to deal with. Less cabling.
Sporting 4 processors the Roku 3600R is every bit as fast as my set top box style Roku units. It does everything they do that I want from it. I understand games may not function as well, but that has never been something I tried on the Roku.
Roku with Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and Plex is how my video consumption occurs these days. The YouTube app is also wonderful. Roku sports hundred, if not thousands, of custom and 3rd party channels as well. If you like international sports, or just miss programming from far away, Roku is pretty great.

I absolutely love my Roku player. Their simplest player, the Express is now $29. After recently comparing with the Apple, Google and Amazon TV devices I have, again, happily stuck with the Roku! Roku’s “channel” based content system makes it easy for me to have access to everything I’d like without subscriptions for cable. I […]

Photoshop is one of the most widely used photo editing tools out there, to the point that it’s the default program designers think of whenever they need work done. Small wonder, too: The flagship software in Adobe’s creative suite is very powerful — if you know how to use it. There is a lot to […]
