Conclusion

The Roku 4 4400R is not perfect it is slow at moments and search can take some time.

If you are not concerned with voice commands and gaming.

If you are not concerned with voice commands and gaming then the Roku 4 4400R may be the model for you. It has the biggest selection available for TV and movies than Apple TV or Amazon Fire. You have more freedom to choose various Streaming Media providers and the search feature makes it a very enjoyable experience.
