Roku Express review, ratings and Hands-on

Category: Entertainment, Television 681 0

Pros

Composite video output. Affordable. Lots of streaming media services and apps.

Cons

Sluggish navigation. Unnecessary if you have a television with an HDMI port.

Bottom Line

The Roku Express+ is an inexpensive media streamer that brings connectivity to older TVs that lack an HDMI port.

The Good The Roku Express is cheap, easy to use and loaded with streaming apps.

The Bad It's slower, especially with Netflix, than alternatives that cost just a few bucks more.

The Bottom Line The Express delivers everything good about Roku for a rock-bottom price, but it's worth spending a bit extra on a faster streamer.
