    Very good review. Generally it appears the stick if faster but both work. The only advantage I can see to having the Red, White and Yellow port is this.

    If you happen to have a 5.1 sound system you can directly attach the cables to that device by RCA. Otherwise you will be using HDMI from the Roku to your TV and then you are stuck with whatever sound out ports the TV offers. In my case my only sound out port on my TV is Coaxial Audio. Unfortunately my 5.1 sound system only has RCA jacks so I have to use an adapter box to go from Coaxial Audio to RCA [more cord clutter, LOL]. .

    Not a big deal for most people but just something to keep in mind.
