Summary: I've been using this for Netflix and Panadora at 1080i on a 65(?) plasma TV. I WOULD use it for youtube but you can't - some sort of licensing argument so it's not available and the workarounds on the net don't work anymore.
Summary: I've had this product for over a month now and I will say I love it. It's cheap, and once you figure out how to hook it up, it does exactly what it's supposed to do. I have been streaming NETFLIX and HULU PLUS with zero issues for over a month, but the first few days were painful.
Summary: I received my Roku earlier this week, and so far I have enjoyed what it has to offer. The setup with a bit of a chore; it definitely didn't take five minutes as advertised. I hooked everything up, plugged it in, and it quickly recognized my router.
Summary: I bought my Roku XD about 3 weeks ago and it has met all my expectations. I wanted something that had enough internet apps to allow me to watch news, sports updates/games, television programs and movies. With my Netflix account and the Roku apps, I'm able to do all of that.
Summary: 2 months ago we decided to cut our home budget and one of those items was the $70/mo for video. We established a $14/mo subscription with Netflix, put an HDTV antenna in the attic and purchased our first ROKU, since then we have been very pleased with how our system is working.
Summary: I have an old CRT TV (grad student, you know) and I wanted to watch netflix on tv so much, that I bought this bad boy. Now I can watch anything from vimeo and youtube as well as netflix. Very happy with the performance. Installation was just a breeze too. Highly recommend.
works fine once you get past wireless configuration

Summary: The Roku has two ways to connect to your router: Ethernet or wireless. I initially tried the wireless route, and found that configuring using WPA2 security just would not work - the Roku would not connect to my router (Actiontec).
Summary: This is a good little box that was easy to setup with no issues using it. The only issues are that it is not ready to be launched in the UK - The power supply comes with an adapter from the US plug and you can only set US timezones which means you cannot set the correct time.
