GREAT When It Works

Matthew, Amazon
17 May 2014
  • Summary: The concept of the Roku is outstanding. Just not happy with the performance - a little sealed plastic box holding heat-generating electronics and when it gets hot, which is when you use it, it makes the screen go blank.

Maybe yours works--Mine doesn't

28 April 2014
  • Summary: UPDATE June 6, 2014--I struggled through until last night and finally gave up. This box, for no reason at all, just decides to reset right in the middle of a video, whether it's streaming from Amazon Prime, Netflix or from a USB drive. The reset takes up to five minutes.

Leaves alot to be desired bordering junk

CJ, Amazon
5 March 2013
  • Summary: You may have heard this device has lots of content free, it does, it's just all junk. Anything worth watching your going to have to pay for. I purchased this to be able to play content off my server in one of the rooms without having to add bulky equipment and tuck this right behind the tv.

Please Read Entire Review from Top to Bottom... from Good to bad to Worst

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 August 2011
  • Summary: I'm getting ready to cut the cord. I have two X-Boxes, an LG Smart TV & a Dell Zino HTPC. Coupled with over-the-air the Rokus are to be used for the bedrooms. I've never owned a Roku, but my father purchased the XDS and I set it up for him.

Troublesome, inconsistent, and prone to locking up.

The Shovel, Amazon
3 January 2016
  • Summary: Troublesome, inconsistent, finally impossible to use. Netflix and Roku pointed the blame at each other, and neither could help me reset it to work properly after about 1.5 years of use. The remote control eats batteries for breakfast! It goes through them at a furious rate.
