Summary: Got this unit with a multi-featured remote control and a game remote. After the first use, I loved it and disconnected my cable TV (word to the wise: delay this decision). The Roku stopped working after 3-4 uses.
Summary: I love my Roku! I bought it to get Netflix on my TV and it works like a dream! My techy kids have moved onto college so I was left to hook this little guy up all by myself. I am proud to say that it is very user friendly and I did not have any trouble at all!
Summary: I have been using one of these for a long time and been very happy with it. I was unplugging it and moving it between two different televisions which is very easy but decided to purchase a second one for convenience. The Roku is very easy to set up and use.
Summary: Although this device is TINY it packs a big punch (to the cable/satellite providers). Having said that however I will make a note for people that look for a way of "cutting the cord" as it were: THIS WILL NOT PLEASE THOSE LOOKING TO WATCH EXACTLY SAME CHANNELS AS YOU GET THROUGH THE CABLE/SATELLITE...
Summary: I hear this is a nice product. I didn't read a lot of reviews or I might have known that in order to use this at all, it has to be activated. That requires that you enter your personal info and credit card info (in case you ever want to purchase anything through them).
Summary: The Roku 2 XD works fine on all channels EXCEPT for Netflix. Many users (me included) have a problem with Netflix episodes not advancing automatically. This problem started with Netflix's new update in June of last year (2012), and it hasn't been fixed in the nine months since.
Ditch Cable, Satellite and the like & go with Roku

Summary: This is the best investment since we cancelled our satellite. We made the decision to stop paying for TV and at first I thought it would be difficult, but it has been an easy transition and even better since we discovered Roku. My husband and I both love it and we have one on all of our TV's.
