Not what I thought it would be, but still a good purchase

Alan, Amazon
18 September 2014
  • Summary: Here's my summary as of July 2014 Positives: On the positive side, with this box I'm able to connect a standard definition TV to my ethernet home network and play a variety of media files. I can play music or video files I have locally using the USB input, or stream from a computer on my home network, or stream files from the Internet.

I freezes up once in a while and losses connection ...

  • Summary: It freezes up once in a while and when the box looses connection with the remote, it can be frustrating. Apart from those moments it works well.

Great for streaming, poor for gaming.

Kindle Customer, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: I love our Roku. Very easy to use. Only thing I can't figure out is how to get our second remote to work. We haven't found any games we really like anyway, so it isn't needed for us. I thought there would be more available for our family for mild gaming, but we're not impressed at all. But for its main function in our household - streaming from Netflix and Amazon prime - it's much faster than our other streaming device and we're extremely impressed with its performance.

Great Product

  • Summary: Easy to set up. Once I installed the HDMI cord, the picture clarity improved tremendously. I would recommend the product, especially to use in a room with no cable.

Lots of options

lazebonez, Amazon

  • Summary: We don't have cable, just local digital channels over the air. We also have netflix through our bluray player. We bought the Roku to add to our choices. I can't speak to set up (because I didn't set it up) but it is easy to use. The remote is freakish in that there is no usual on/off button, it just "knows" when you hold it. Playing Angry Birds with the motion remote is fun, though took some getting used to. The menus are fast and easy to navigate.

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

ThatOtherRedhead, Amazon
14 October 2013
  • 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.
