That comparison is from 6/15/2017 and doesn't include the Roku Premiere (3920) from this deal that was released in September of 2018. In some ways, the 2018 Premier(+) models were a step backwards from the 2016 Premier models. They went back to single-band 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi instead of dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n+ac.

The comparison chart on Wikipedia is more complete and up-to-date: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rok...generation
Yup. The premier isn't worth it in my opinion when you can get the stick+ for $10 more and it gives you better WiFi capabilities, and remote has the tv power/volume buttons.

I bought two of the premier from the kohl's deal late May but returned them because they didn't have AC band nor have the ability to connect to 5G WiFi bands. The stick+ does so it works out better for my uses, and can handle 4K Plex streams direct play.

Looks to be a sale by Roku. It's $29 at their site and at Best Buy too.

I don't have Prime etc, and so in that case is it better than the FireStick if I want to stream 4K with the latest apps?

Yep Amazon follows a sale and hardly ever puts something 3rd party on sale just because.

Dam the no 5ghz and no volume on the remote kills this deal. How the hell do you make a remote without volume buttons?

for longevity and future proofing, i would get the stick+ or the ultra.

Both the stick+ and the ultra have the additional tv power and volume buttons on the remote, which really helps to de-clutter how many remotes you need to use.

I think if you use HDMI+CEC+Arc to an external audio system, the roku remote should be able to control the audio system volume as well, but don't quote me on that.

Does Roku allow Google Play Movies to be played with 5.1 sound? It seems like there's a channel for Google Play Movies but couldn't find more info on how supported it is. I'd like to be able to play Google Play Movies (rented movies) with 5.1 sound. I can currently play them on Firestick through YouTube app but that only gets me 2-channel stereo sound.

Here's an odd thing about wifi: I shut off AC [to get some smart home stuff working] and I was surprised to see that all the Roku devices streamed 4k/60 without so much as a stutter, including the Roku Ultra that was connecting to an access point on the opposite end of the house from the access point [by mistake]. I'm not encouraging anyone to turn off AC, but it seems like AC isn't essential for the Roku devices.

Also, the better remote that comes with the Stick + or Ultra (or via separate purchase) is much, much better. You don't have to worry about pointing it at the TV and the added volume buttons make it complete.

Can confirm. Have a Roku stick in the garage streaming from a ~15 year old WRT54GL access point on 2.4 GHz no problem. It started as one of those "will this work?" Saturday Tech experiments that just keeps working so who am I to question it.

Do get the Stick+ or Ultra if you can though. I know that sounds hypocritical after the above statement but it's still good advice haha.

It will still work fine without Prime, but the interface is built to bombard you with Prime Video content, so it's incredibly annoying if you aren't using that stuff regularly. Plus, I've had constant WiFi issues on every FireStick I've owned (they always need to be restarted during movies). I sold them all and replaced them with Roku devices and they haven't dropped connection once. Google "Home is Currently Unavailable" and you'll see what I mean.

I think it might also depend on what you're streaming and from where. I have was having issues with plex on the roku premier on 2.5 Ghz band when attempting to play full blu-ray movies, not even UHD movies. These are full quality movies at disc bitrate ranging about 30-45GB in size.

Netflix however played without any issues, even in 4K, because those are usually compressed heavily and total movie size probably ranges 3-10GB size.

Regardless, like you both mentioned, the stick+ for only $10 more is worth is just for the remote and not needing line of sight, like you do with the roku premier.
