I have used Rokus for the past 10 years and love them! This is the first "stick" I have tried. I wasn't sure how it would work, but it's been fantastic and couldn't have been easier! I bought 2 sticks on a Black Friday deal when they were priced the same as the ROKU Express, to replace an older ROKU box that didn't get Disney+ (it was an 8yr old model). I love the power and volume on the new Roku remote. The stick came with a USB power cord to connect to my TV USB port for power, as well as a power adapter and HDMI extender in case they didn't fit. I used the 2nd stick in my so called "smart" TV that is only 4 yrs old and freezes whenever I start an app, and this fixed it perfectly. I like that there isn't a box to point the remote at to control, too. Can't say enough good things about ROKU!
