Editor's Notes

January 08, 2019: The heavy hitters in this category come from brands we expected to see, with Roku, Amazon, and Apple among the top ranks. NVIDIA's Shield system remains rather viable as well, while a few of the more suspicious KODI boxes stand out from within a sea of comparable brand-X options. Despite having better specs in some cases, these tend to have issues with their open source software bugging out on people.
