2023 Onn 1080p Stick and 2023 Onn 4K Box Benchmarks — Compared to all Fire TV Sticks, 2021 Onn Models, Chromecast, Shield TV, and more

Walmart just released its all-new 2nd-generation Onn Streaming Stick for 2023 as the successor to the first stick it released in 2021. Earlier this year, the retailer updated its first 4K streamer with the release of its new 2nd-gen Onn 4K Box, but that device disappointed many with worse performance than the 2021 model it replaced. Here is a rundown of benchmark scores for both of Walmart’s new 2023 streaming devices to see how they stack up against the devices they replace and all Amazon Firesticks, Google Chromecasts, Nvidia Shield TVs, and other streaming devices running Fire OS, Android TV, and Google TV.

Walmart releases new 2023 Onn 1080p Streaming Stick running Google TV for just $14.88

Walmart has unceremoniously released its 2nd-generation Onn Streaming Stick with a staggeringly low price of $14.88. This new 1080p streamer is a replacement to the first Onn Streaming Stick which debuted in 2021 for just under $25 but quickly dropped to just under $15, which is where it spent most of its availability. While the Onn 4K Streaming Box for $19.88 released earlier this year is certainly the better buy for not much more money, the new Onn Streaming Stick is a worthy upgrade over the previous model.

Give Fire TV Ads the finger with these Google/Android TV Streaming Device Black Friday Deals — Chromecast, Shield TV, & Onn

There’s no better way to show Amazon what you think of its full-screen autoplaying Fire TV video ads than to jump ship and replace your Fire TV with a Google TV or Android TV streaming device. Black Friday is the best time to do it with great prices across the board. A good alternative to the 1080p Fire TV Stick is the 1080p Chromecast HD for $19.95, which is 33% off its regular price, or the 4K Walmart Onn Streaming Box for $19.88. An Alternative to the Fire TV Stick 4K or 4K Max would be the Chromecast 4K for $37.98, which is 24% off its regular price of $49.99. If you want the best of the best and an alternative to the Fire TV Cube, you can’t go wrong with either the Shield TV for $124.99, which is 17% off its regular price of $149.99, or the Shield TV Pro for $169.99, which is 15% off its regular price of $199.99. There are also countless deals on Google TV Smart TVs from Sony, TCL, Vizio, Hisense, and others that, frankly, put the Fire TV Smart TV selection to shame when it comes to high-end TVs.

New Walmart Onn 4K Android/Google TV Streamer makes its first appearance

Nearly two years ago, Walmart began selling its first 4K Android TV streaming device, the Onn 4K Streaming Box.

The Onn 4K box and matching Onn 1080p Stick quietly began to disappear from both Walmart’s website and retail shelves, suggesting the models were being discontinued. Now, the first indication of a successor to the Onn 4K Streaming Box has made an appearance. Read more ›
