USB TV sticks, such as the Chromecast or Roku Streaming Stick, can be purchased online from electronics retailers such as Best Buy and Newegg as well as from general retailers such as Amazon. Discount department stores such as Target also sell various brands and models of USB TV sticks.
Listings on the Best Buy website contain both a product description and pictures for each USB TV stick sold in addition to comprehensive customer reviews. Each review is written by a Best Buy site user, though users are not required to purchase the item in order to write a review. The reviews include a one-to-five star rating in addition to a written rating. Each product's review section contains a quick summary area that displays the average star rating out of all submitted reviews and a gallery of any customer-submitted images. Reviews can be sorted by the language of the user as well as by the star rating attached to the review.
Amazon also features user reviews for each product, as well as a question and answer section. This section enables users to post questions to the Amazon community about features not covered in the product description, such as compatibility with certain televisions or programs.
