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 GE 22730 DTV converter box is difficult to use and has subpar video quality, so you're better off going with a different converter box.
