lame

wesley h., Newegg
17 December 2014
  • Summary: I have heard that this unit MIGHT work with some small amount of reliability if it is cabled up via the rj45 port. I have not been able to do that. I never intended to have a cable where it is located. The wireless never worked with any amount of reliability. and now it does not work at all. 3 different routers...same results.....I would NOT recommend this item to anyone.
  • Pros: zero..........................................................................................................................................................................................................................
  • Cons: 2 hours of frustration and waiting for every 1 hour of streaming............................................................................................................................................................................................................

tmr, Amazon

  • Summary: I was excited to upgrade from my original Roku.....the really old one.... even tho my old one is still working. It was fun getting it with the new remotes...but now after only a few months...the picture goes out for minutes at a time....sometimes not coming on again till much later in the day. I only had 30 days to return this but of course it worked fine for 30 days.

ROKU 2 XS - NOT for the Wi-Fi Crowd

TJ Knows "TJ Knows", Amazon
11 August 2014
  • Summary: The ONE thing that they should b telling you about this device doesn't seem to be mentioned ANYWHERE until you have problems and start digging. You MUST be able to add the MAC ADDRESS into a router to get it to work. I don't HAVE a router or hardwired cable internet - I subscribe to a Wi-Fi plan and have no way of getting this resolved easily.

Update: Crashes

D. Dahlbeck "Tappah", Amazon
22 April 2014
  • Summary: I own two Roku boxes. The 3 works like a charm all the time. My 2XS regularly freezes and restarts. I have contacted Roku and they basically said to restart and reset, which I did, And the same thing happened. Seems to happen when fast forwarding using Hulu Plus, which is something I do regularly. Don't be tempted by the couple of bucks you save, buy the Roku 3 or a Chromecast. I hate this thing now.

Should not buy REFURBISHED anything

Jax14, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: This item lasted for a little over a month, lots of frustration and not worth the effort, we called the support, they can't help us and finally I decided to return it and it's too late, no longer under warranty..it is garbage..so we bought a new one, much better, cheaper at Office Depot...disappointed!

  • Summary: Sending back. First time getting a refurb and this product didn't connect to any wireless routers i tried it on and I didn't want to go wired. Guess it still needs to be refurbished... again. Great price but didn't work.

Refurbished? I don't think so. Didn't work at all.

Kerry, Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: This was my second Roku; I love the product--but not this "refurbished" unit. I bought the refurbished unit (foolishly in retrospect) to save about $20, and because it came with an HDMI cable. I've had very good luck with electronic products refurbished by the manufacturer, as this was advertised. I don't think that this product was refurbished by Roku. I've set up two other Rokus and each time it took me about 10 minutes.

Missing HDMI cable and did NOT work

wizardofAZ, Amazon
1 September 2013
  • Summary: How can a company send a 'broken/unusable' product out? When I read 'refurbished' it should mean 'tested' and ready to work. I bought another from Amazon, it works nice and I am very happy.
