Summary: Believe all the rave reviews - my Roku XR(HD) connected to my home Wi-Fi network, in LESS than 3 minutes. After that, we had 300+ movie titles at our fingertips. Say GOODBYE to gambling at Video Stores, or pricey RedBox rentals. Kiss your Cable provider bye too....as you now have the absolute power to watch what YOU program, 24/7/365. With Roku - you'll no longer waste gas, schlepping to and from Video Stores, spending $3 in gas..
Why buy the stripped down new Roku 2 models for this Top of The Line for $50
James G., Amazon
26 June 2012
Summary: I just scored this top model HD-XR from Amazon affiliate Woot.com (my 2nd Roku) for a cool $50. Sure it's an old school factory firmware updated refurb model. But this is the most spec'ed up model, with the most connection options. It is comparably identical in features and specs to my 1st Roku the XD/S (also a factory refurb from Woot.com), save the housing and rear panel. Still, the best signal one can get is with the hard wired ethernet.
Great piece of equipment to view Amazon prime movies

Summary: Bought this on amazon.com to view amazon prime movies on my TV instead of watching on the kindle fire. It works great and is very easy to set up. Plus it allows you to not noly use it with newer TV's that use the HDMI cable but it also works with older TV's that use the 3 colored cables so we can bring this along when we travel to watch on other TV's. Very east to set up. I was pleased also with how fast it shipped and arrived from the seller.
Summary: This is the best product on the market for all your entertainment needs. I cut my cable after purchasing this and an Antenna (for my sports) and I will never look back. The XR models are what I would recommend, for a couple dollars more you get a whole lot more functionality out of the box. I have suggested the Roku to many friends and several have purchased based on my review. I strongly feel Roku is the future of entertainment and will recommend it to anybody!
Summary: Bought one of these for my parents. It is one of the simplest devices to set up and to operate that I have ever encountered. This model has an HD connection, and that really takes the thinking out of it as far as what goes where, but also sports component video and trusty old RCA red white yellow. This player has pretty much as much connectivity as you could possibly hope for. My parents are not huge tech people, and I was sold on the simplicity of the remote.
Excerpt: The Roku is a fantastic TV media device. The Netflix app is excellent and they keep adding more public channels. If you look online you can even find private channels as well. I'd recommend Roku to anyone. Video quality is mostly dependent on your internet speed. I use the Wireless-N on...
Summary: I finally got tired of being robbed by my local cable provider for basic cable and decided to join Netflix. Netflix is easily accessed in our living room through our wii console but we needed a devise for our bedroom television. We already own a Roku XD and thought this one would make a good addition and several months later, we are still thrilled with the purchase.
