Roku 4 review

 

Simply put: The Roku 4 is the best 4K Ultra HD streaming set-top box on the market today.

has Siri, Amazon Fire TV has gaming, but the Roku has them both beat when it comes to ease of use, content search and discovery, and portability. There’s a place for all of these devices in my home, but if I had to pick just one to live with for the...

Roku 4 review: The best Roku player, but not for the money

 

Out of all the products in Roku's lineup—and there are many—the Roku 4 is the one that doesn't quite fit.

Lots of big-name apps and surprising niche finds ; Unrivaled 4K content selection ; Remote-finding feature is pretty smart

Bigger, noisier, and pricier than other Roku players ; App design and interface are showing their age ; Voice recognition is less reliable than other streamers

With or without a 4K TV, Roku’s priciest streaming box is a minor improvement over its cheaper models.

Roku 4 review: Rock-solid streaming, now in 4K

 

The Roku 4 is the company's updated flagship set-top box with support for 4K (although, bizarrely, it's still not available in the UK). With so many big-name competitors now on the market, such Amazon Fire TV 4K, is it worth paying $130 for this...

Broad channel selection; 4K 60fps support; same remote with voice search; headphone input and motion control

Much flatter and wider than Roku 3; outdated interface design; limited 4K content; minor update over last box; no UK release

When it comes to streaming 4K content, the Roku 4 offers one of the most compelling solutions out there - well, out somewhere, as it's not available in the UK just yet. But for those in the US it's an ideal way to watch 4K content, if you have a...

Roku 4 Streaming Media Player Review

 

If you own a 4K TV, this is a slam-dunk. If not, the advances in hardware are still enough to step up from a Roku 2.

4K streaming to UHDTV; Agnostic search finds titles in multiple services; Notifications when specific movies become available

Remote mic is inaccurate; Search can’t find specific episodes of specific seasons

A Review of the Roku 4 4K streaming media box

 

While it may not garner the same attention from the consumer public as the Apple TV or even the newly released Amazon Fire TV box, the Roku 4 is quite honestly one very, very solid piece of 4K ultra HD media streaming hardware. It's also a great...

Fantastic access to 4K and non-4K content and apps ; Superbly build OS platform ; Very easy to use ; Great connectivity ; superb fleshed out mobile app version of Roku OS ; Full 4K support with HDCP 2.2 and HEVC

Slightly expensive given lack of gaming features ; No gaming features ; No HDR support quite yet

Unless you’re looking for a 4K streaming media box that absolutely needs to support gaming, then the Roku 4K media box is probably the best option on the market right now for pure passive entertainment options and ease of use. We highly recommend it.
