The 3 Best Streaming Devices Under $50

#3 – Roku 3500R Streaming Stick (HDMI) – $49.99

The Roku Streaming Stick is a solid device, but we’re giving in third place. It’s the most expensive of the three devices we couldn’t find any solid reason to shell out the extra dough.

#2 – Google Chromecast – $29.99

The Chromecast is definitely a neat little device! You’ll easily be able to cast tabs from your chrome browser on your computer, phone, or tablet to your TV in HD. However, we found that it’s versatility is also it’s crutch. Because the Chromecast depends on users to configure additional devices you can sometimes run into tiny glitches. In addition, not all WiFi devices are supported and if you have a locked down router you might experience issues casting from your devices to the Chromecast.

#1 – Fire TV Stick – $39.99

The Amazon Fire Stick is by far our favorite streaming gadget under $50! This nifty little stick comes with it’s own remote allowing for quick and seamless setup. The remote only has several buttons and is designed with simplicity in mind. In addition the user is forced to watch a quick 60 second setup video when they first activate the device, which is great for teaching kids or adults how to use their new stick. This stick can do it all, it can stream Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime content.

Asus RT-N16 Socket to Serial for Arduino

I started working on a new project that is going to let me control the Arduino using WiFi. I looked at several different options to accomplish this goal. There are WiFi shields that could plug and play straight into the Arduino, but they are somewhat expensive ($79) and it uses up pins on the Arduino that I may want to use on other parts of my final robot project. My next option I looked at was an Ethernet shield. It would plug straight into the Arduino losing pins and now requiring a router of my choice. I would expect the cost to be higher than the Wifi shield cost, because I would want a decent router that is capable of high performance. My last option I looked at was the one I went for. It requires a wireless router that supports DD-WRT with USB support. Here’s a list from DD-WRT wiki of the compatible routers.
