As I’ve mentioned a few times recently, I’ve been thinking of covering streaming media boxes other than the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick a little more frequently than I have in the past, so I picked up a Xiaomi Mi Box and a Roku Express. I selected these two devices because I consider them to potentially be the best competitors to the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, respectively. The Mi Box seems to have a decent set of specs and features without breaking the bank, which is a category the Fire TV dominates, and the Roku Express is a super cheap media streamer, which is a category the Fire TV Stick dominates. Covering these devices in relation to Fire TV devices is new territory for me, so I’m asking for your help and suggestions on what you’d like to see from me regarding non-Fire TV streaming devices.
There are already plenty of reviews for these devices, and I’m sure more are being posted daily, so just reviewing them and moving on is not what I’m interested in doing. I’m more interested in covering and comparing things that get glossed over or ignored entirely in your average review. I’ve got some ideas of my own, but let me know in the comments below what you’d like me to explore, no matter how specific or broad it is, when it comes to non-Fire TV streaming devices, both in relation to the Fire TV and not. Any feedback you can give me to steer me in the right direction is greatly appreciated.
