Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve talked a lot about Apple, that is why I decided that it was time to talk about something a little different.

Smart TVs have gone a long way over the last couple of years, but for some reason, I don’t tend to get on with the smart TV systems that come bundled with the TVs.

Take our living room TV as an example, it’s not the newest TV on the market nor is it the best, but I’m not a fan of LG WebOS. The bedroom TV is no different, I decided to get a Toshiba TV as it was available for a decent price, but I think the interface looks dated, and the overall user experience isn’t great.

That’s where devices such as Apple TV, FireStick, Roku and Google TV come in handy.

Over the last couple of months, I’ve primarily been using a Chromecast with Google TV in the living room, and I must say that the experience has been great! Not only does the device perform extremely well, but there are many apps available!

So you’re probably wondering where the Roku Stick fits in to all of this. I’ve been using an ancient FireStick with the bedroom TV which was seriously starting to show its age, it was slow, buggy and just felt annoying to use.
