Android stick (HDMI sticks) anyone?

Have any reasonable people found a low cost android stick that is good for streaming Netflix, twitch, streaming local media files, and maybe cable provider On Demand stuff? I can get a wired connection if needed but reviews are always so varied that I never know who to trust on these things. The specs seem like they should be more than capable but never sure who to trust. I have a chromecast (with fingers crossed for future development there) and would like to believe that MiraCast from my android device would suffice but I can't find any reliable data on that solution either. Bring forth your knowledge!

Have considered the following:
