Works well but there are some negatives

boylan, Amazon
19 January 2012
  • 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.

Amazing once you get it hooked up...

  • 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.

neat little toy

  • 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.

New Roku XD

W. Crews, Amazon
10 February 2011
  • 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.

ROKU has replaced our cable

Amazon Customer, Amazon
6 December 2010
  • 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.

Mixed results, but overall a thumbs up

  • Summary: Let's start with set up: Set Up: The set up wizard is easy to follow. The Roku box found our wireless network immediately. I gave it the security information and it connected right up.

  • 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

Lee Ford, Amazon
8 November 2010
  • 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).

Good but not ready for the UK marketplace

mikro-ni, Amazon
4 February 2011
  • 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.
