There's nothing special about it to me. You can get the same features in a blue ray dvd player, tivo hd or countless other media devices. They should charge less for it. I recommend vulkano flow or sling box. Because you buy this Roku box and then have to buy other programming to watch on it. Because the free stuff on it came out in the old days are they aren't even C rated movies.Look at other media devices.
Great product, if you're not really a tv watcher. After purchasing, it seemed like a lot of channels and movies cost money. Even old movies cost about .99, which adds up after while. If you're going to purchase get a movie channel like Netflix.
The product is good. But this particular one that I bought stopped connecting to wifi after 2 weeks. The product was said to be brand new but It had scratches on it. I am using the roku via the ethernet cable now so it's fine. Came with hdmi so that was good. Overall this roku is slower to work have to wait for program to load.
Great item for using Netflix, beyond that Very limited, no Youtube, HGTV, Food Networkor (all were removed this month, March 2012) because of copywright issues. lots of unusable channels with useless content. No networks just lots of Forign news has a very poor picture quality...People say its great and will replace cable...Roku has a long way to go before that happens....Years maybe.
OK. had some problems with installing it. Husband and I are not great "Techies"
Placed a few phone calls to ROKU and also got some online help. If we played a lot of games or found more movies to our liking, we'd have a higher rating, I'm sure.
