However, the Ultra is the only Roku streaming player with an Ethernet port. It’s also the only Roku streaming player with storage expansion through the microSD card slot or full-size USB port. Even the remote is unique, since it features personal shortcut buttons, a remote finder, buttons for TV power, volume, and mute, and a headphone jack for private listening.

The Roku Ultra is available for $99 and includes a free pair of JBL earbuds.

2. Roku Streaming Stick Plus

You don’t get a free pair of JBL earbuds, personal shortcut buttons for the remote, or other Roku Ultra niceties. However, the Roku Streaming Stick Plus is arguably the best Roku streaming player for most people.

The Roku Premiere shouldn’t be as featured-packed as it is, seeing how it costs less than $40. The remote doesn’t have voice support and there’s only 802.11b/g/n single-band Wi-Fi.
