Why does the performance of Roku devices degrade as the device gets older?

All of my Roku Express devices have a much slower reaction time in navigating within apps like Hulu than my brand new Roku Ultra.  I bought the Ultra because I figured that this device might have more processing power and might perform better but I am wondering if it will degrade over time just like the Express devices did.  What causes these devices to slow down over time?  Can I somehow do a hard reset to them so that they begin to perform better? (I have already done many resets of the devices and it never makes a difference).  This seems to be a major issue and should be addressed.
