A very good entertainment device that works well for me, streams HD quality from my Amazon prime video account!

  • Summary: Length:: 4:21 Mins Please take the time to watch my video as it reviews the features and also the startup of the Roku 2XS. My son has an older Roku in his home and his family just loves it. They spend a lot of time watching Netflix and they enjoy using it every day. They have had a good reliable unit and so I thought I would try to use one at my home.

I'm not going back to cable

  • Summary: I fought the transition but rising cable prices for fewer channels convinced me to give it a try. It is different. There is no instant noise when I turn it on. I have to make a selection and that in itself changed my viewing habits. I now view content based on my schedule not that of some programmer or computer. I haven't missed any of the programming I watched when I had cable because I catch them on other providers like HuluPlus.

  • Summary: this purchase was on a whim to upgrade from a 1st gen roku.... I wanted a few specifics of course.... A/V out put along with HDMI, wire and wireless, micro sd card slot, not to mention the ease of set up etc etc. Roku 3 does not give this. I got that and more... found the 2XS 3100 in a store near by, so took a road trip... shelf price at the store was 88.00 not including tax, but I bought it online and scored it for less. Pick up was super easy at the store....

Happy with purchase

  • Summary: I was really glad to get a better price on the refurbished XS and after comparing, decided the Roku 3 wasn't worth the extra money. Plus it's an even better deal with the HDMI cable included- besides the headphone jack on the remote on the 3, I don't think I am missing out on anything with the older model. Setup was easy and went smoothly. Followed the included instructions to pair the remote- no problem. Located and linked to my wireless network- no problem.

Gets the job done

P. Skelly, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought it mainly to have HBO Go on the big screen. While the device was initially slow to load episodes, I believe it was just an issue of the firmware being updated, as now episodes load just fine. I use this primarily for Netflix and HBO Go, and it gets the job done. Interfaces could be better, but for the price and value it's hard to argue. I have no real complaints about the streaming quality.

Completely Without Problems

  • Summary: This replaced a Boxee Box that I had for several years as it was advertised as supporting the closed captioning of Amazon movies which may or may not be true. I couldn't get it to work the one time I tried it so caveat emptor as they say. It also seems to be supported by the Logitech Harmony Remote that I have although I haven't got that working perfectly yet either.
  • Pros: Small footprint, easy to use ui and remote
  • Cons: none
