  • Summary: Put simply, the Roku 3 is the finest media streamer on the market right now. It’s small, powerful, does almost everything, and its only real downside is its lack of AirPlay support. If you don’t live in a house filled with Macs and iPhones though, and you want more than what the incredible £10 Now TV Box can offer, there’s nothing better out there.

  • Conclusion: The Roku 3 streaming media player may have converted me from my Apple-centric ways. In addition to its extensive channel lineup, fast speed and great reliability, this player and its accessories offer many little perks that simply work the way they're supposed to, with no complication.

Roku 3 Review

  • Conclusion: There are a lot of media streamers on the market. Without a doubt, every one of them has perks and provides a little something that your system didn't previously have. That said, it's hard to beat the options that are being offered under the tiny chassis of the Roku 3. Not all of them are freebies or selections that you'd actually be interested in, but there are just enough -- and you could spring for a few too, you cheap-o.
  • Pros: Endless entertainment for under $100, Supports 1080p, 7.1 and 5.1 sound for all (where available), Hundreds of programming choices, Integrated headphone jack on the remote
  • Cons: Plastic or a Paypal account is required for setup, No official YouTube channel (but there are workarounds), No 3D support, No PC-based streaming, Device is always on

Roku 3 review: our favorite media streamer, and the simplest to use, too

Engadget
3 April 2013
  • Summary: Just like the Roku players before it, the Roku 3 is the easiest-to-recommend media streamer on the market. An appealing package of services, accessibility and price has gotten even better with this round of updates, and we expect it to keep improving over the coming months. YouTube continues to stand alone as the oddly shaped hole in Roku's streaming-channel library, which can certainly be an issue when you're searching for cat videos, but an abundance of premium content...
  • Pros: New UI is a welcome improvement, Upgraded CPU eliminates performance issues, Simple, capable and relatively cheap
  • Cons: Still no official YouTube or DLNA support, No analog AV output

  • Conclusion: The Roku 3 adds an interface overhaul along with a nifty remote-mounted headphone jack for private listening, but the Roku 2 is a better buy.
  • Pros: New interface is faster to navigate and is more intuitive than with previous Roku boxes. Quick menu navigation. Integrated/cross channel search is incredibly useful.
  • Cons: No out-of-the-box local streaming. App only currently available for iPhone/iPod Touch.

Roku 3 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
8 March 2013
  • Summary: The Roku 3 is a first-rate media-streaming device at a great price, turning any TV into a smart TV. We love the compact design, personal listening feature and slicker interface. On the other hand, the game selection is pretty shallow, and we wish Roku offered both YouTube and Google Play as channels and video streaming from mobile devices.
  • Pros: Slick and compact design, Much improved search interface, Headphones offer personal listening with headphone jack, Huge number of channels available, USB port for media playback, Can stream photos and videos from mobile devices
  • Cons: No YouTube Google Play support, Gaming selection limited, Can't stream video from mobile yet
