    "No lag...NICE !...I purchased the stick because I was getting Comcast installed and although I already have a smart tv and an Apple TV I wanted the ROKU because Comcast has an app for it for my channels and I was going to use it instead of a cable box....Absolutely no lag issues with the Roku Stick and I love that I can take with me when I travel with no considerations needed for space and/or if my hotel will have a HDMI input in tv (not even in rural areas)."

    "Great !...not bad...I have always used Apple TV, but the absurd cost for the new one put me off and I decided to give Roku a chance, and I am very impressed....It works well, there are plenty of options to choose from (other reviews here lay those out really nicely), and it makes streaming a breeze for the generation used to flipping through channels using a remote."
