|Bottom line|| |
The Roku 3 is the best streaming-video box yet, with tons of content sources, lightning-fast performance, and an innovative remote with built-in headphone jack.
The Boxee Box by D-Link has some innovative design choices and a promising user interface, but mainstream content is mostly missing in action until future firmware updates are available.
The Elgato HD HomeRun Dual is a decent way to get over-the-air TV on your PC, but its high bandwidth requirements mean you're better off opting for wired rather than Wi-Fi streaming.
