  1. I have an Amazon TV stick it works well but sometimes buffer andvis said to work better with higher internet speed, roku seems to well based on what I’ve heard even on slower internet speeds, personally I don’t like apple products, but I would buy the nvidia.

  2. Thanks for explaining the differences and similarities of the Roku Sticks .I really do think Roku is the best option when it comes to streaming !!!

  3. Roku express stick seems to be a good buy. Definitely needs to try this one

  4. Does the link go to eBay also or I will have to make an account with Amazon?

    • No Alray, the links do not go to eBay as yet, only on Amazon. And yes you have make an account on Amazon in order to purchase any products off the website. It very simple and easy to do but if you need any help with creating an account on Amazon or how to purchase let me know..
