Roku 1

 

The Roku 1 might not sound new - the numerical character in the name is usually a dead giveaway - but it forms part of the smart TV platform company's revamped line up of low price streaming boxes. Gone are the confusing array of purple Roku 2 boxes...

Don’t cry if someone gives you a Roku 1 out of the kindness of their heart. This little black box is a brilliant media streamer with so many channels, and will put almost any smart TV service to shame for very little. But you’d be mad not to pay a...

Love my Roku

 

I have had my Roku for 2 years. Have never had any problems with it.This is the basic model with no bells and whistles. Only has a remote to use for searching.

DOA

 

This is a pretty simple device but such a trouble.

As soon as plugged, it worked, but the problem begins here

After the initial connection to home wifi router, it updated software, then it booted again. After that, it never finds any wifi routers. Called Roku CS and spent about 30 minutes without any success following very lame procedures (i.e., reset to...

Poor Return Policy

 

If you are going to purchase electronics, buy them from a place who does not try to make you pay extra for returning a product

Cheap

If your looking to stream HBO or Showtime like the product advertises and you have Comcast as your cable provider, you will not be able to use the Roku for those services. Comcast blocked the streaming services to the Roku. If you try to return the...

Round goes the Roku

 

Well Newegg gets the win here. I had a dead remote with my first try. Newegg customer service rapidly sent me a RMA UPS prepaid auth and off it went. I had a replacement in about 4 days. I like the device and am very happy with it.

The new unit worked as advertised. Set up is very simple. Foot print of the device is like a hockey puck. Navigation of menus is simple and easy no cussing was required

I you have Hulu and or Netflix you are in good shape. Other paid services will offer plenty of diversity in viewing options. However if you only select from the free services you might be a little disappointed. I was, but not enough to pitch a fit...

Works Great

 

Love my ROKU 1, the 3rd one I have. I have this one in my office and love it. Great selection of channels and very easy set up. I have a Fire Stick and like ROKU better.
