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...

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

This is how you make a set-top box

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.

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,...

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.
