The Bottom Line The Linksys Wireless-B media adapter does a good job of letting media hounds beam MP3s to their stereo or digital pictures to their TV, but it's pricey considering what it still lacks. Google's $35 Chromecast stick is a cheap and easy way to add streaming video and music to your TV, but it still isn't as fully featured as similarly priced Roku boxes. The Roku 3 is the best streaming-video box yet, with tons of content sources, lightning-fast performance, and an innovative remote with built-in headphone jack.
