Summary: I've had my Roku for about a year now and I love it. I have it attached wirelessly to my network in my bedroom. As my house is old and without much attic space in which to run wires, I appreciate the wireless. Of all of my wireless devices, including my laptop, I believe the Roku works the best on my wireless network. After it was attached, it has worked nearly seamlessly. The wiring in my house is old and blocks much of the wireless signal in my bedroom.
Summary: This product works well provided you have a good internet services and strong router to connect to it. I still prefer my Cable service or just downloading the shows to a media player hard drive and then hooking it to my tv. That way I can have a little more control on scrolling through the videos and etc.
Love this little monster so much I got others hooked on them!

Summary: This has to be one of the most hands down greatest devices for the money and great savings to anyone who buys one. I do not have cable or satellite and have not had it for some time. I do enjoy watching TV but I am not around enough to really enjoy paying for lots of channels of wasted things to watch. I ended up looking around the internet and found a software company offering this product free through Amazon...
Summary: OK, me and my wife went on this adventure to find a good streaming box about a month ago, so we went to target and I saw they had the 1080p version of the roku for just 50$. But alas it was out of stock there, so I asked the store attendant if they had it at the other store he said yes! We got there and it wasn't there of course, all they had was the 720p version and the Sony media player... Well I debated forever and the Sony box had everything so I got it!
Summary: Works great, easy to set up. The kids absolutly love it, and find it easy to use. Mostly use it for Netflix, and Pandora, but some of the other channels are interesting as well. Thinking about purchasing another.
Summary: I have two Roku devices - one for the living room and one for the bedroom. I had no wifi connection problems, despite what a few users have stated. I have had no problems with the Netflix or Hulu services via the Roku save a few interruptions that were traced to Netflix or Hulu themselves. The Roku does as advertised and does it well.
