Summary: Glad someone told me about this. I am really enjoying it. Simple to install and lots of entertainment. I have nothing to compare to since this is the first time that I have used one. I can even operate it and I am technically challenged.
Summary: I researched the Roku initially as a basic home theater solution for my parents. At the time I had a dedicated PC that I used for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. at my house. While my parents are technical, I knew they did not want to spend the time or money building a HTPC for their house.
Summary: I have been unplugged for 2 years now, but I was using my laptop to view programs. Even though I had downloaded a wifi remote to comtrol my laptop, I still found it inconvenient to constantly switch from window to window to watch my favorite shows.
