Roku vs. Apple TV vs. ?

The particulars: I subscribe to Netflix streaming and am an Amazon Prime Member - I'd like to leverage both. I also have video files (home movies and the like) on my PC that I'd like to be able to watch from my TV as well. Preferably it'd be networked wirelessly, but if either (or some other platform I've not considered) can do it (even if transferred by thumb drive), I'm good to go. If it enhances functionality or swings things one way or the other, there's also iPhones/iPad2's in the mix.
I know for my needs I probably need to do a full-blown HTPC, but I'm looking for something around the Roku/Apple TV price range.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
