Roku 3 vs Roku Express?

I might be able to get my hands on a Roku Express soon, apart from the remote ( private listening/game controls) and USB socket, what are the differences and does the Express perform better than the Roku 3?

Depending if it's the 2016 model or the 2017 model, no Screen Mirroring on the 2016. Also, no Ethernet port.

I would not say that the current Express outperforms the Roku 3. However, it does perform very well. Unless you need the features of the Roku 3, I'd suggest getting the Express, and make sure it's the current model (3900/3910) and not the previous model (3700/3710).

Re: Roku 3 vs Roku Express?

Cheers, it boils down to keep the Roku 3, or Keep the Roku Express, the differences are
Roku 3 has a gaming remote - not used/required
Roku 3 has USB - other than a phone charger - again not used
Wifi remote - line of sight OK
headphone jack on remote - not used that much, and if the app supports it that'll do
