Not bad

Michael H., Amazon
9 October 2012
  • Summary: It's a pretty neat device. If you don't have a Netflix subscription, or Hulu Plus, it's useless. There are lots of channels, and not much content. Frankly, simply plugging in a laptop to my TV gives 1000% more things to watch.

Easy Set Up

Charles D. Mooney, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: The Roku box is very easy to set up. However, you will also have to set up a Roku account if you do not already have one. To set up a Roku account requires a valid credit card. Nothing is charged for any of the free channels, but the credit card information is stored for purchasing any future pay...

Great for movies!

Shannon H., Amazon
30 July 2012
  • Summary: I recently purchased a Roku (2XS) at a local big box store for our bedroom, as we had a Wii connected to our living room TV. After seeing how easy it was to use, I decided to move it to the living room, which left us with nothing in our bedroom, so I decided to purchase this one to use there.

Perfect in every way but one

  • Summary: Overall, the Roku2 is a great product. It's smaller and more stylish than the Roku1. Setup is easy and non-eventful. Despite what I've read in a few other reviews, it can be setup/registered without a credit card. But the feature that I wanted most was the closed captioning.

Roku rocks

Rick, Amazon
5 April 2012
  • Summary: This is my third Roku player. I use mainly for Netflix streaming, and it works great. Also, Pandora works well, and the remote includes buttons for Netflix, Pandora, and one other channel. Convenient. However, the new style remote is not as touch-easy to use as the older ones I hsve.

Great content, slightly annoying interface

L. Gramitt, Amazon
24 December 2011
  • Summary: The content is spot on. Hulu Plus, Netflix, plus all your Facebook photos and videos. News channels for free etc...The remote isn't always responsive and the interface is not as smooth as I expected. Worth the price even with the flaws.

Roku 2 needs to add a more info to their website.

Acra73, Amazon
1 December 2011
  • Summary: The Roku 2 is a great product & reasonably priced compared to similar devices out there. It's very easy to set up & use. There are a couple of things that need to be addressed like the websites lack of channel information. It tells you what the channels are but not what the subscription prices are.

I had trouble initially then it worked fine

16 October 2011
  • Summary: This is my second Roku, last year I bought the previous model (ROKU XD) and I loved it, so I bought this one for another room in my house. I don't know what happened, but this one was very difficult to setup intially compared to my other unit.

Finally works with netflix subtitles...

R. Bunds, Amazon
7 October 2011
  • Summary: Last year we purchased a Roku player for my mother-in-law who is deaf to a certain range of tones, so she rely's on subtitles a lot. We thought it would be great for her to finally be able to watch streaming movies on Netflix.
