Summary: I bought the refurbished unit to put into another room as I already have a Roku in the living room. The product will not power on and will not work. I contacted seller but have not received a reply from them.
Summary: I was leery of buying a refurbished unit until I saw that it had a warranty. When it didn't work correctly, Roku told me that I would be receiving a replacement in 3 - 7 business days. The confirmation email that they sent me said that I would need to return the old unit at my cost before they would send the replacement. I called and asked if they understood the concept of a warranty.
Summary: Apple TV doesn't have the ability to watch Amazon Prime movies, so after my years ago terrible experience with Roku I figured things would be better now. However, paying the same amount for the Roku 3 as for my Apple TV seemed overkill as I'm not very interested in Roku's other channels. I settled for a refurbished (or B-stock as the sticker on the bottom says) Roku 2 XD. I have two 27" 1081 monitors that Sit side by side.
Summary: reboot is very slow and UI does not have reboot or reconnect option so when wifi is dropped it's time to walk over and unplug it and wait... and wait... long enough to write a deserved bad review. while the roku is having trouble with a low definition film, speedtest on my ipad reports consistently 10mbps and up. my wifi router is about 15 feet from the roku. when you sign up they require a credit card even if you don't sign up for pay channels.
Summary: Well we got it up and it gave us a code for the website. Unfortunately the website was down for maintenance.:( When I tried to get the thing up a second time to try again, all I could get is Roku on the screen. Couldn't get the code or anything, just Roku........ Not so simple or satisfying...
Summary: I also bought the XD product being specified for a 1080 TV receiver. It doesn't work in the UK as it is unable to pick up Netflix. There is no excuse for Amazon UK selling a UK customer a product that doesn't work. I have so far had no satisfactory response from either product support or the supplier. This is not what I expect of Amazon. You should be very wary of buying electronic products from Amazon, who have so far failed to address this issue.
Summary: Bought this item not realising that the UK model was yet to be released. I received the US model which currently points at US websites only and not at the UK. I suspect that this will not change and so the box is essentially useless for what I wanted it. Unfortunate as the usef interface is pretty slick and it looks like a well made product.
