    Its all about what you want to use it for & how you want to use it.

    With the Netgear you can mirror what is on your T100. With a Roku or a Chromecast, they access the internet themselves, so can be working without needing the T100 at all. They can be controlled from a smartphone, tablet etc.

    Forget Amazon Prime directly on the Chromecast though - the only way to stream that to CC is by casting a tab from Chrome browser.

    If you want UHD/4k, go for the Fire TV box - that gives you 4k streams of Amazon original series free. Others you'll need to pay for.

    The Roku is more flexible if you want a NAS, Plex etc connection.

    PLEASE Search for existing threads before posting a new one. Thanks.

    Your opinion matters. But should you disagree - please try not to be disagreeable

    However, everyone seems to be very high on Roku or Chromecast. What say you? Is this a matter of marketing over substance in terms of the dominance of those two devices? What are the pros and cons? The Chromecast is certainly cheaper and many reviewers seem to think it is much better and easier to use for media consumption purposes. Is there any way in which a direct WiDi connection is better than the Chromecast?
    The thing about Roku for me is the price tag. But it also seems like a pretty good and easy to use option. Thoughts?
    I have the PTV2000, the Chromecast, and a Roku stick. The PTV is strictly a mirroring device. So you would have to access the content (Netflix, YouTube) on the T100 and mirror it to the TV. It is a "dumb" technology. The Roku can mirror as well but also has Netflix, YouTube, and Amazon Prime apps to run standalone. It will turn a "dumb" TV into a "smart" TV. The Chromecast is a little different again as you can cast Chrome browser tabs but also work on the device separately. So it is not really "mirroring" but multitasking. For my purposes, the Roku is my choice as it has an app for my cable TV service.
