    Nice list! I think I'd like the Samsung watch for my Note 3 and the Chromecast although I havent really done any comparison with similar products yet like the Roku above or the Amazon Firestick. And my wife says I'm so hard to buy for! She just needs to see lists like this!

    We've had the Chromecast since it came out. We got our Firestick a couple of weeks ago. And I would recommend the Firestick over the Chromecast.
