Not the best deal but $54.99 is not bad if you need one now.

Staples also same price https://www.staples.ca/products/2927139 ... ice-remote

Amazon also same price https://www.amazon.ca/Stick-All-New-Rem ... ces&sr=1-1

Too bad SDM didn't drop the price as well, it would be great to grab it during the bonus redemption weekend.

Tossup. Go cheapest.

Earlier this summer I would have said chromecast because of no ads, but now all media devices have them. If you cast or want to, enjoy google things, go chrome. If you plan to keep amazon, want win11 compatibility across purchased apps, 4k stick.

Owning both, they are...pretty similar. You can sideload apks on both if you are into that. The Chromecast integrates a bit better into Google's ecosystem (and the fireTV with amazon's, obviously)

Homescreen on both suck. Promotions and recommendations all over the place. You can install a custom launcher on both, and the Chromecast has an "apps-only" mode (although it also disables voice search).

I think the FireTV remote is better with one exception - The Chromecast remote has an input switcher button, which makes it a lot more useful as a universal remote.

I'd say the Chromecast is better by a hair, but I have google home devices and not amazon alexa devices/prime video. YMMV.

Is the best price for these things at $44.99 (eg C$10 cheaper)? I bought mine in 2019 (Eg Firestick 4k on a black friday or whenever it was)... However, one has to factor in obsolesence esp if something new comes up within the next 12-18 months?

Strangely, CBC Olympics replay has been choppy this week (but live action before, streaming it was not). Maybe it's their site rather than the stick needing an upgrade soon...
