    Out of these hdmi media streaming sticks what do you like most? All around similar pricing. Not sure if it matters but we have an iPhone 6, Galaxy S5, LG G Pad, Acer Windows 7 laptop and two Samsung led tvs. Looking for best streaming options (content) and features. Example can an Android phone or tablet push content to a roku or the new Amazon Fire stick? Thanks for any input or recommendations.

    All these sticks are similar yet different.

    HERE is a thumbnail comparison of the 3

    It really comes down to what you really want to achieve and watch but the channel list for both is growing rapidly.

    Chrome cast lets you stream from the Chrome browser or certain Chromecast enabled Android or iOS app.

    You can stream to Roku from a Mac or PC via Plex and also from the Android Roku app w/ some Android phones. Roku probably has the best preprogrammed commercial content.
