Roku 2 (Second edition)

 

Your eyes don't deceive you, this is the brand new Roku 2. You won't find any letters after this media box's name though, as unlike its predecessors, this one's part of the third generation of Roku boxes, and slots right into middle of the revamped and...

The Roku 2 is a formidable media puck that takes on almost anything you throw at it. The headphone jack alone is worth the extra £20 (or £10 on Amazon) premium over the Roku 1, plus its superior Wi-Fi performance is always welcome - but then at that...

Roku XS

 

This is my 3rd Roku and I need another one. I feel the cable companies are not liking these very much because they can not compete with the price.

Credit Card Needed

 

Bought this for my mom to watch Netflix. Did not like having to provide credit card info even though she was not going to purchase or rent anything other then Netflix.

I have the Roku 3 & I hate it!!!

 

I just purchased the Roku 3 and I am so disappointed. I can't get HBO Go because you have to order it from your cable provider & hope that they are on the list with Roku. Comcast isn't on the list. You can't watch a Disney movie or cartoon on the...

A Must have!!!

 

Super great quality. Already put over 60 channels on my favorites list with thousands of FREE movies. Bought 3 units now with one in each room and one in my office so I can stream movies all day long in my waiting room. For $69 you CAN'T go wrong! Tons...

Great Product

 

I bought 2 for my children's rooms since we don't have cable or dish. They love them. They can watch all of their favorite shows on netflix or crackle and Disney. Great deal. Device was easy to install and I haven't had any problems.

not needed if you have any smart TV or DVD player

 

Cute little functional box. but having less app and channels than normal Smart TV or B-Ray players, it is not worth separate purchase.

Not so reliable

 

Unit worked for about a day, then lost the remote pairing and had a ton of trouble trying to get the remote to pair to the unit. Even after a success it would loose the pairing again and I ended up returning it. I normally don't have troubles with...

Not a full pledge media player good to stream only

 

I needed a media player to mainly play video files from my USB drive. This player deserves a 1 star in that department. It only play 1 or 2 special video formats only. Good luck finding a converter to convert your existing video files to the the unique...

Just returned it - should say it all

 

If all you want is Netflix & Hulu, this is fine.I want to surf & view a small set of favorite streaming websites. Turns out almost every one is formatted in Flash - and Roku simply cannot process flash-encoded streams. So ... useless ... and returned.
