i love my roku stick and recommend them over the other choices quite often. this new one is faster and has some new features that make it worthy of an upgrade if you have an older roku stick. miracast is also a wonderful feature that works well even for a "beta" feature.
the option to stream the audio to your smartphone and then plug in headphones is worth the cost of the upgrade alone!! have bought a handful of these already for my house. anyone looking to by an older model roku stick?? i have a few "spare" ones in a pretty purple color i'm not using
