Powerful punch, and provides new life to older TVs without HDMI
August 28, 2017
I have owned a fair share of Roku devices over the years, and has technology has evolved, and streaming technologies have changed for the better, in most cases, I leaped on the Roku Express+ after having a Roku Express.
First off, if you stream as your main source of television, this is great. For the price, you really can't beat it. I use SlingTV and Xfinity as my main sources of video, as well as Netflix on occasion. This small little powerhouse holds up to the demands of streaming at great quality.
So why the Express+ and not just the Express? They may look the same, but the Express+ supports TV with A/V jacks. In my case, I am trying to use all of my old televisions until they bite the dust. This little guy is linked up to an RCA TV in my kitchen and does well. I stream SlingTV and Xfinity, and the picture is amazing, even on an old TV.
Things to remember:
If you want games and 4k, this is not the device for you.
If you just want great quality picture for a low price, this is a great option.
If you are still trying to get use out of old televisions, the Express+ is a fantastic option as it has capability for A/V.
This small little box really goes unnoticeable. But that can be the problem. Make sure to use the sticky tape provided to stick down to the TV or another surface. It moves very easily if not secured.
