I really like the product. Streaming movies is a snap, and quality is excellent.
The only reason I rated it a 4 is because the user interface isn't real intuitive. You have to get used to it, and even then I can find myself stumbling through.
Once it's going it rocks, but the interface could use improvement.
Great deal fast shipping works great. Wish there was a wireless keyboard for it. I like the A/V feature. Comes with free Angry Birds game. Perfect for Netflix and many other streaming video apps.
It seemed to be better than the equivalent Apple TV one.
I like it because it is more reliable, more flexible, better resolution, and offers more options right out of the box than Apple TV. The only thing that I don't like is that it cannot be turned off, (not that the fact that is permanently on causes any damage to anything...)
In comparison to other equivalent ones, I think it is the best buy for the money right now
Great product, works well. Could have a better definition but overall not bad. This is a good alternative to cable. Could have more games as well.
It's a pretty good device, the channels are reasonably priced, but there is a great free option variadad if a deficiency but it only works in the U.S., Canada and Ireland.
This device does what it says it will do and therefore it is recommended. There is a glaring issue: it will not stream .avi files at all and it sometimes fails to stream .mkv files. There is no indication on screen to show _why_ .mkv files fail to stream. I have therefore converted all video files to mp4 all of which play without fail. For the foregoing reasons I have rated it a 4.
We are movie watchers and this is exactly what we were looking for ...No surprises after four movies from Amazon.
While I really like the Roku, the main thing we use is Netflix. Angry Birds is a bit of fun every now and then but a passing fad.
There has been a recent platform upgrade for Roku but we haven't used it yet.
Unfortunately, we cannot watch HBO on it because our cable provider Comcast doesn't permit it.
But I can watch HBOGO on my phone or tablet ... go figure!
Hooray for corporate pissing matches! I hope you realize it's sarcasm!
Had a little trouble getting it started, but now learning how to use it. Seller was very helpful in providing any and all information I needed. Does work great and the family enjoys watching the different shows
We love our Roku unit. It works great and it's easier to use that our Wii, which we used to watch Netflix on in the past. Now we get to watch many other channels too that we didn't know were available for free. We even thought about getting a LCD TV with the 'smart' feature but found through research that this was a much better choice.
