Good little unit for the price


Had to set up a Roku account and provide them with a credit card even though all I wanted was Netflix. That was a little annoying.

Does what I expected it to do. I wanted this to watch Netflix on an older TV that didn't have an HDMI input and I'm glad this version of the Roku had the cables included to support it ; Couldn't be simpler to set up. It's two cables and a remote ; Has...

I am running this on wireless due to its location in the living room. It is only one room away from the wireless router but it routinely drops the connection. It doesn't drop when something is playing, but when switching between shows in Netflix or...

Worst Customer Service In Existence


I tried to fall in love with this device, but you'll be amazed how terrible Roku customer support is should your device be faulty. Keep in mind, all Roku devices are covered under the standard warranty for only 90 days, new or refurbished. Should your...

It works, most of the time. Decent amount of extra channels available over a standard SMART blu-ray player

Random lock-ups while streaming. I spent over two hours with two different Roku reps that were giving me the runaround over an RMA (click this, click that, update this, contact us again). I mentioned I would be willing to file a report with the Better...

don't like it.


First of all. It's refurbished one. probably It's only my problems. 1. Wireless connection - It's not working well. keeps dropping connections. 2. Keeps Rebooting once a day - I don't know why It reboots itself every day. it's so annoying.

Pretty small and sleek ; Wireless

No power button

can not view the fox channel, history or A&e channel cause my cable company won't allow access have enough shows as a prime am**** member and PBS and other channels available to cancel cable if I didn't need baseball (GO RAYS)

my second regurb roku 2xs from newegg cause they;re cheap hooked right up to existing network and instantly repopulated the setup of my exisitng roku ; does have the bluetooth remote so roku can be behind TV ; does have motion remote if you wish to...

less then the roku 3 ; no headphone jack on remote ; no IOS or android support listed (to use as remote or do a miracast sort of thing)but can not verify since I just have a tracfone which is appless jave and 3G wifi

I don't usually buy refurbished and this is the reason why. Roku dead on arrival. Not a simple return process either.


Never worked, evidently they just keep sending these out until somebody doesn't return it

Roku 3 DOES have ethernet


One previous reviewer said Roku 3 didn't have Ethernet connection. W R O N G , it does. BTAIM (be that as it may), I still think this Roku 2 XS is a much better deal

None, maybe no headphone jack on remote

Best Media Streaming Box


Roku 2XS is by far the best miniature media streaming device I've owned, It is so great, I've gotten friends and family their own, and everyone is happy with it. Good Xmas Gift, Birthday, ETC. the Price itself is amazing for the power it contains. This...

As much as I love this, Ads in anything you pay for is always a negative

Very Impressed


The Roku 2 XS refurb is actually a better value and more feature rich than the third generation Roku 3. While the Roku 3 has a faster processor and a nifty audio jack on the remote, which I personally find to be a nice feature, the Roku 3 is has less...

Compact, Energy efficient, feature rich, and streams video/music with extreme efficiency ; The unit came with two remotes, which is very handy for gaming with friends. The package also included a new HDMI cable. The extra remote and HDMI cable were...

The system did not integrate with my Plex server as seamlessly as I would have hoped. The setup is somewhat convoluted and "glitchy ; No LAN storage capability, per se. A USB device port is provided, but the ROKU does not transcode on the fly. Movies...
