Roku's little streamer that could, the Roku Streaming Stick, is an impulsive buying territory. The tiny device costs $ 35 on Amazon right now, reducing it to the normal price of the basic Chromecast model and making it a much more attractive purchase.
In his opinion, our own Corbin was impressed by the Roku Streaming Stick, praising the performance of the device. The small dongle matches the form factor of the first generation Chromecast, as it is a stick (obviously) that hides behind your TV, hanging from an HDMI input and extracting its power from a USB port. It can not do 4K, but again, it's $ 35. It's a useful and economical way to take broadcast applications to a dumb TV (or streaming apps that are not palatable to a low-end smart TV).
You do not need a Prime membership to get this price, and the listing does not say how long the sale will last. But at this price, why wait?
