Excerpt: We were considering adding cable to our household, thanks to this [$] device and my $8 a month service fee to Netflix, my family is extremely satisfied with our entertainment services. You cannot beat how easy it is to setup this device. The only difficulty with the product is the lack of ease in navigating through Netflix.... problem solved with a Roku remote downloaded to my smartphone.
Excerpt: Have used for one year. I am now buying a second unit for second TV. Very pleased with it and what it provides. Occasionally it will "lock up" and I need to unplug, count to 10, and reconnet. I would highly recommend.
Excerpt: I've had my Roku now for a couple years, overall I've been very happy with it. Primary use is watching movies. If I let it set for a couple months without using it I might have to unplug it for a minute to reboot it is the only down side. Getting ready to purchase a second unit for my man cave.
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.
