One of our favorite media streamers of 2021 is back to its all-time low. Amazon is selling the Roku Express 4K+ for $29, down from the usual $40. That’s an excellent price for this standout streamer, but we don’t expect it to last past the weekend.
When we reviewed the Roku Express 4K+, we gave it four out of five stars and an Editors’ Choice Award. It’s also our runner-up as the “best budget-priced 4K HDR streaming device” in our round-up of the best media streaming devices of 2021.
“The Roku Express 4K+ is Roku’s most compelling new device in years,” our reviewer said. We praised this model for its solid performance, capable remote, and extra features such as private listening, closed-caption replay, and AirPlay 2 support.
Given the Express 4K+’s low price, you will have to settle for some compromises, namely its lack of Dolby Vision HDR; for that, you’ll have to step up to the pricier Roku Ultra. Still, you do get HDR10 support, not to mention Dolby Atmos for immersive object-based audio.
The Roku Express 4K+ is a great streamer for its standard $40 sticker price, but at $29, it’s a steal. Go get it.
