Streaming Stick+ vs. Ultra

Besides form factor, JBL headphones, enhanced remote, and ethernet port, what is the difference between the Streaming Stick+ and the Ultra in terms of video and audio quality?  Do they have the same processor?  Do they have the same performance?

Re: Streaming Stick+ vs. Ultra

Reference chart on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roku#Feature_comparison

The only differences beyond the ones you've cited are

Model               SS+(3810)    Ultra(4670)
Memory              1GB          2GB
SD card             no            yes
Channel storage     not listed    512MB
 

In addition, the Streaming Stick+ has its wifi receiver built into the USB power cord where it is supposed to enhance wifi performance up to 4x the range, whereas the Ultra's is inside the unit.  In Roku's own product description it says the Ultra has "our best wireless", so go figure.

  • Roku Streaming Stick +, 3810X, Ser YH0059427035, wifi - Samsung UN55ES6100
  • Roku Streaming Stick, 3600X, Ser 5S56D8240827, wifi - JVC EM37T
  • TCL Roku TV 43S425/C107X, Ser X000001R60KV, wifi

Re: Streaming Stick+ vs. Ultra

Thanks for posting the Wikipedia link and the specs.

I currently have the Streaming Stick+ and am considering the Ultra.  Specifically, I notice some lag in the response when browsing or selecting channels; also I have to occasionally turn off the Roku after it locks up and becomes unresponsive.

I wonder if the responsiveness of the Ultra is better given the additional memory?

Thanks !!
