I figured it was time to update some of my media players. My current devices were purchased about 2009. I just purchased a new Western Digital TV Live
and a Roku 3
.Western Digital TV Live…
I wanted all the playable media types available hence the reason for not purchasing the WD TV Play. There are great improvement’s over the past versions.Roku 3…
This was an amazing upgrade from my previous model. Saying it’s faster would be a gross understatement. What I thought was an Internet connection problem (Charter 30Mbps down) was actually a CPU issue of the older Roku. The latest model screams!!!
I had an old 8GB Micro SD card from a cell phone which fits in the Roku 3 to give additional storage for more channels. Apple TV…
I have the current version. It works well with my iPhone, iPad, MacBook Pro and my new laptop running Windows 8 using AirServer http://www.airserverapp.com/
. This makes all these devices wireless
720P and 1080P.
I also have apps for my iPhone and iPad to remotely control the Western Digital TV Live, Roku 3 and Apple TV from my recliner.
All the above devices are easy to setup. I was amazed to see that my YouTube channel is still grandfathered in on the Roku 3.
There is some overlap on the above media devices but each has some things which are unique to the individual player. It just depends on your needs.Now if I only had more time to watch all the content!!!
