Which Streaming Device?

Just ordered a new TV (Samsung RU7100) and looking for a new streaming device.

I currently have a Chromecast Ultra with my old TV which I will continue to use.

I'm wondering if there's any benefit of spending more on an Nvidia Shield, Shied TV, or Apple TV over another Chromecast Ultra?

If anyone has one or more of the above, let me know your thoughts, thanks!

Can you share what you plan on doing with the device? What will you spend most of your time using it for? Watching movies, Netflix? What kind of phone do you have? Is this your first streaming device?

why not look at a Firestick? Best bang for the buck

I like the Roku Streaming Stick+ because it supports Google Play Movies as well as Netflix, Prime, etc.

I prefer my Firestick 4k over my chromecast; the remote control makes it much more convenient to use. Apple TV is okay, but when on sale, I don't think you can beat the Firestick.
