  • Summary: Great item but newer versions would probably be better. Also, Roku needs to loose the fabric with Roku on it (purple fabric ribbon) because the letters fall off and it looks bad. Nice that it came with the HDMI cable. Great product for us cord-cutters!

Nice, only thing missing YouTube and playing from memory stick

  • Summary: Roku needs to get their crap straight with YouTube and come up with an agreement that allows them to have a YouTube channel on the Roku. They also should try supporting mkv or avi files from USB drives, that'll make the product so much more useful.

A very good small device.

  • Summary: Its a neat little gadget that streams dozens of channels including netflix, hulu, vudu, TED, cnet, facebook, etc. At $49 with a free HDMI cable this is a good deal. It saves my PS3 from all the streaming duties.

Great product description was little misleading

  • Summary: Arrived in near perfect condition. I've never had a problem with refurbished items and they are usually worth the savings. Roku does not have a long warranty (90 days) on there new items anyways. The description led you to believe it came with a gaming remote for Angry Birds etc. The description has since been changed (probably due to complaints). It was not worth the hassle of sending back. As far as the Roku itself, we love it.

Works as advertised but read the fine print.

  • Summary: I've had the Roku 2 XD for a few days now. Set up was very easy. You'll need to set up an account with Roku online in order to activate the unit. From there you can also set up your channels if you wish. We have an Amazon Prime account and so could set up the Amazon Instant Video channel. We also subscribe to HBO. I dropped a star because I cannot set up the HBO Go channel.

Great streaming box for Prime and others

Jean Gray, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this primarily to stream Amazon Prime to a TV that doesn't have a compatible BR player and I feel no need to upgrade that player. As a bonus I now have access to PBS Kids and Disney Channel for my little ones, though Disney Channel makes you watch a commercial between features, which if you are doing a playlist of short cartoons it seems to go amongst about 3 ads, so very annoying for adults but kids don't care. Very easy to set up.

Works great!

  • Summary: The remote isn't the greatest, but here's a secret--Download an app for your smart phone, like Rokumoto for Windows Phone 7, and it greatly expands the functionality of your Roku Player. The only thing about this, and it is a huge negative- is that Youtube is not available. Once Youtube is available, I will gladly give it 5 stars.

Works great - After fixing connection issue with my DSL modem

David Thrasher, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: The Roku player is very easy to set up for most people. However I had difficulty with mine because of an under-reported issue of connecting to WiFi connections with mixed mode encryption. My DSL modem (an ActionTec GT724WRG DSL modem where the router is built-in) had mixed mode encryption as its default. After spending entirely too long with Roku tech support and trying things that had nothing to do with the real problem, the issue was uncovered.

Roku 2 XD Rocks !!!

Sea Wolf "Blue C Diver", Amazon
24 November 2012
  • Summary: OK. Let me start off by saying that this is a great option to replace cable if you're not stuck on HBO, STARZ, Cinemax or any of those other channels programs that you get on cable. The selection of channels is very good but they could use some more current mainstream channels. You can get news channels (e.g.
