Summary: My grand daughter is very, very pleased with this. It was most convenient to purchase the bundle so I didn't have to shop around for the HDMI cable that is required. Now, if grand daughter does her school work first, that could be the challenge.
Summary: Awesome. We use this in combination with a DTV (over the air) antenna - Got rid of our crappy satellite subscription and we're saving over $1,000 per year - and not missing any shows that we want to watch.
Summary: I have been using a Roku 2XS streaming player since early 2013 mainly to stream Netflix and Amazon Prime movies and TV shows. Recently, I have added another unit in a different room about a month ago to watch other free programming from other providers such as PBS, Smithsonian Channel, WSJ Live, and CNN international, the Knowledge Network, etc. So far I am very satisfied with the Ruko 2XS' performance and its ease of use.
Summary: I love my Roku and the channel options. I recently, hwoever, was really missing watching some of my favorite shows on ABC, PBS and NBC and the one Roku channel I could find to get them (USTVNOW) turns out doesn't work in the USA - only for USA residents who are abroad (how weird is that?!) The good news, however, is today I hooked up a Winegard FreeVision FV-30BB HDTV Antenna and now I'm set with the best of both worlds!
Summary: I bought the Roku primarily because I was having so many issues using Netflix on my TiVo Premiere. On a regular basis, the movie or tv show would freeze or stop responding to the remote entirely--no pause, no stop, no leaving the film without hitting MyTivo. The Roku has proven to be exactly what I wanted and I'm having zero issues with Netflix. I can also use the Roku for Amazon Prime Video and this is where I did run into some issues in setup.
Summary: I've had several Rokus over the years. I love them. They do a great job getting your internet or usb content to your tv. I like this particular model because I use prefer using wired internet most of the time, and need the Ethernet jack.
Unhook from network TV - this is the best way to make a dumb TV a Smart TV.

Summary: This is the second one we have bought. We no longer subscribe to network TV. Roku is the best way to stream content. It has the most channels, and is far better than Google, Apple of X-Box; I know first hand of all threes failures.
