Spend the extra money and get a new one. You'll need to sooner than later...
18 July 2014
Summary: This worked great for the first 90 days. After that it started having problems but I was willing to get the player to work eventually knowing the "warranty" had passed. Now I have to reset it constantly. Today it stopped working completely. I've only had it for 7 months.
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: Not too happy with Roku. This is the second unit I purchased that had issues. This time, no picture or audio. Tried different cable, same issue. Tried a gaming system in same input on TV, no problem. Sending this one back and going to try non-refurbished, direct from manufacturer.
Summary: I purchased this Roku for my husband as a Christmas present. Everything up until connecting the Roku to the TV was awesome but the Roku would not connect via HDMI. A lot of trouble on my side and told no exchange just a refund and to purchase a different unit.
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.
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.
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.
