Now that the Ultra is over 2 years old and Roku hasn't launched anything better to replace it. What's the newest and best device on the market. I hate to be using old technology.
All the reviews I have read regarding the latest Ultra devices say that their is actually nothing new about them regarding internal components and their overall performance. I was hoping the industry had made advancements in the last 2 years to improve performance and the overall streaming experience. Amazon Fire seems to be getting all the press and the Roku Ultra doesn't top any lists today, The Roku Stick seems to be the highest rated at the moment?
I have a Ultra Roku from 3 months ago, And a Roku Ultra from 2 weeks ago, the one with JBL headphones.
I see no difference.
The newest Roku Ultra from 2 weeks ago, the one with JBL headphones, I bought because it was $48 with a $35 Slingtv Credit. So it was almost free. But had a hassle with getting the Sling credit, so it may be going back.
Thanks for the answers, it seems that streaming devices have stalled at their current technological limits. I guess I will just have to wait for the next big breakthrough. I like the Roku, I just find it slow and not very intuitive, now I fully realize that some of my complaints are with the aps themselves. Netflix gets a 9 out of 10 for ease of use, Amazon and Hulu suck in comparison though I wouldn't give them up.
