Roku 3 Review

 

Roku devices have been streaming Internet content since 2008. That would explain why every streaming content player, except for iTunes, supports the Roku brand. Unlike Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV, Roku does not have any content to push for. Roku has...

Roku 3

 

The Roku 3 adds an interface overhaul along with a nifty remote-mounted headphone jack for private listening, but the Roku 2 is a better buy.

New interface is faster to navigate and is more intuitive than with previous Roku boxes. Quick menu navigation. Integrated/cross channel search is incredibly useful

No out-of-the-box local streaming. App only currently available for iPhone/iPod Touch

Roku is a pioneer in video-streaming media hubs, but as Apple TV became popular, and HDTVs and Blu-ray players began supporting Netflix and other online services, Roku boxes started to look less unique and less useful. The latest box, the Roku 3...

How do you get someone to buy your streaming-video puck when everything already streams Netflix?

The Roku 3 's excellent interface and speedy processor makes it feel quicker and more responsive than any other streaming box. More than 1,000 channels are supported, including Netflix, Amazon Instant, HBO Go, Hulu Plus, Pandora, MLB.TV, Amazon Cloud...

The Apple TV still works better within the Apple ecosystem. And the Roku 3 isn't the best option if you're mostly looking to stream your personal digital media collection.

The Roku 3 is the best streaming-video box yet, with tons of content sources, lightning-fast performance, and an innovative remote with built-in headphone jack.

Roku 3 Review

 

With its enhanced interface, vast content selection and private listening feature, the Roku 3 is a very compelling media-streaming device.

Slick and compact design; Much improved search interface; Headphones offer personal listening with headphone jack; Huge number of channels available; USB port for media playback; Can stream photos and videos from mobile devices

No YouTube Google Play support; Gaming selection limited; Can't stream video from mobile yet

Click to EnlargeThe Roku 3 is a first-rate media-streaming device at a great price, turning any TV into a smart TV. We love the compact design, personal listening feature and slicker interface. On the other hand, the game selection is pretty shallow,...

There are two things you should know about me right up front. One is the list of shows I'm currently watching: at this moment I'm at various points in The West Wing, Homeland, House of Cards, Scandal, Alias, Mad Men, Community, The Office, Parks and...

Fast, smooth performance ; Excellent interface ; Huge amount of content available

YouTube is a big hole ; Can't match AirPlay's functionality ; Weak local file support

Unless you're heavily invested in Apple, this is a no-brainer purchase

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player (4200R) Preview

 

Looking like a squared-off hockey puck and featuring a completely upgraded interface, has the new Roku 3 finally hit its peak? The all-new Roku interface lets you glide through menu screens, quickly accessing channels like Angry Birds Space, Netflix,...

Roku 3 Streaming Media Player

 

Roku has a new streaming media player out there, simply called the Roku 3. Adrienne Maxwell, who has a lot of experience with streaming media players, puts the Roku 3 to the test to see how it measures up.

The Roku 3 streaming media player may have converted me from my Apple-centric ways. In addition to its extensive channel lineup, fast speed and great reliability, this player and its accessories offer many little perks that simply work the way they're...

EH Buyer’s Scorecard: Roku 3 Streaming Player

 

A closer look at this streaming set-top box, from in-house and around the web.

Finally, a sequel that exceeds your wildest expectations. An effortless new interface. Faster and more powerful hardware. Even a remote with headphone jack for those late-night movie sessions. Meet Roku 3—our most amazing streaming experience ever.

Roku 3 review

 

In November 2011, Julie and I reviewed two models of the Roku 2 (see related posts for link). I've been using my Roku 2 in my living room since then, and I had an older Roku in my bedroom. The bedroom TV has no cable hookup, so I relied on my Roku and...

Installation was quick and easy ; Variety of programming available ; Built-in dual-band wireless ; Can stream 1080p video ; Works with Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, and other subscription services ; Allows access to Time Warner Cable...

Limited formats supported for your own content ; No HDMI cable included

Roku 3 review

 

The Roku 3 is the brand's most advanced TV streamer yet. But with Sky virtually giving away its Roku-made Now TV box would you pay top dollar for Roku's finest?

Slick, speedy user interface ; Simple to set up and use ; Angry Birds

Inadequate media player ; Few catchu-up services ; Poor quality headhones

Offering lightning fast navigation and expandable storage capacity, the Roku 3 is a terrific streaming TV gizmo. It may lack YouTube, but there's big-hitting content from the likes of Netflix and iPlayer and a few decent games.
