|Bottom line||Info unavailable|| |
Plair 2 is an interesting Chromecast alternative that offers access to the full suite of Android apps, but it's just not reliable enough to recommend.
The Roku LT is the best budget streaming-media device, easily topping the $35 Chromecast.
While it's still a step behind the Roku 3, the Apple TV is an excellent streaming box, especially for those invested in the Apple ecosystem.
