I want to purchase a roku box to free myself from the bondage of cable!-LOL! Which roku should I purchase? I currently have wireless with two laptops but its not like there will ever be more one person on a laptop while the kids watch a movie. That being said, I think the $75 box is enough. Help!

  • A. $75 box is sufficient but for $20 more you have the upgrades that you might want in the future.

  • A. Just my .02... I would hook the laptop to the tv. The roku ois fine, but limited as far as the online video content..unless you pay a monthly fee for netflix or something. But, this defeats the purpose of cutting the cable...lol. You can download some really cool media browser programs from the web that will let you use the laptop on the tv and browse all your media.

  • A. I think the Roku DX box is very good. I bought the Roku DXS box from Walmart for $98. After having it a week and moving it between my 2 tv's I went out and bought th Roku DX for $78. Just as good If I was to do it over I would buy the for both tv's. It does the job just greet.

  • A. I guess it depends on you. For $20 more I got the latest duel band technology, optical audio out and a usb port. Right now you can get a free player and play digital movies and music. (limited formats) I felt it was worth the money. New routers and devices are coming out with duel band. I am ready if I upgrade things.

  • A. two SSIDs on my wireless router. One supported 2.4GHz and the other supported 5GHz. I had been wondering why my Roku XDS was only talking on the 2.4GHz frequency when the specs indicated that it could also use the 5GHz frequency. I had a lightbulb moment and reconfigured my Roku to use the SSID corresponding to my 5GHz frequency.

  • A. In case you are still wondering what dual band wireless is (I see you posted this about a month ago, so not sure...): many people who have routers have single band wireless, which is fine when you have just one or two wi-fi devices in use in your wireless network. Sometimes, when you have multiple devices that are wi-fi, all the signals simultaneously coming to/from the router and the devices -- along with interference from such things as a wireless phone or even a microwave -- create a wi-fi "logjam" of sorts; as a result, your devices will likely suffer from slow internet speeds. Dual-band wireless allows another path for wi-fi signals to go, alleviating the traffic and speeding up your connection overall (that is, bringing it closely back to the same rate of speed as if you had just one or two wi-fi device in your home network).

I use Roku to watch Netflix a lot! There is a variety of programing available, many free. Yes, a credit or debit card or paypal is required. I understand from other owners you can get this waived through costumer service. I don't know what the big deal is. Most online services require a method of payment. I pay Netflix directly by debit card. I haven't bought anything from Roku or have any service billed through Roku. You will not be billed anything from Roku unless you buy something through them The box is easy to setup and delivers outstanding video quality. I was up and running in 15 minutes. I am saving $30 on my cable service and my cut more. Programing on Roku is about all I watch, and I am only spending $10 for Netflix. That is streaming to my Roku and computer plus unlimited dvd delivery to my home. I LOVE ROKU!!!!

Keep in mind that this review is nothing against the roku itself. It's mostly about the video channels and the way I thought I could use it. I bought this Roku box after cutting my cable tv off. While I didn't expect it to cover everything, I did expect there to be more free (useful) content. I did find some private channels that could be added, but most of them have limited content. There are a number of channels that require a monthly fee, but this negates the point of cutting the cable. Mechanically, the box works flawlessly. Hooking it up and setting it up with the wireless router were both completely painless. I just feel that if you're looking for free video content from the web, you are better off hooking up and old PC or laptop...which is what I intend to do once I return this Roku. Also, you can't hook up to the box from your computer to play any media that might be saved there. You either need to use a thumb drive or a USB external hard drive.

I bought it to watch Netflix streaming on my old analog set. Neither Apple or Google TV have good old fashioned video/audio outs, so they didn't get my money. Roku has HDMI AND optical audio AND component AND old school connectors. I even bought a second one for a gift. I didn't really dig into the other content available on the box, but now that I have it, I use it constantly for Pandora and occasionally for a Netflix movie. I've tried to get into the rest of the content available on the box, but some of it is pretty lame. considering the wild and woolly available on the internet, I'd like to see Roku really stretch and find some offensive and radical content. They're going to need to do something to battle Apple TV's Airplay capability and Google TV's wide open internet access. Missing are Hulu (the free service - not Hulu plus which I don't care about...) and YouTube. Overall - I'd buy it again and again, but it will take a better content line up to get the fifth star out of me...

Overall, the Roku is a simple and easy to use box for streaming your favorite online content whether that be Netflix, Amazon On-demand or the ever growing number of online channels. Set up was a breeze and immediately after verify it had Internet access went right into an download/update automatically. The interface is intuitive and only takes a few minutes to get rolling with Netflix. I couldn't be happier with the product given I've only had it 4 days but will come back and give a more robust review after I get a bit more time in on it. Ultimately, I love to ditch my cable and use this exclusively for all my viewing via Netflix/etc but that may be a hard sell given most sports still reside on the upper channles or more specifically ESPN. In any event, it plays nicely for family entertainment and those looking to stream Netflix but don't yet have a blue-ray player,gaming station and/or TV to do the work for you. I can't wait to see how this product develops over the next few years.

Product was extremely easy to set up and link with Netflix and [...] accounts. It's so convenient, we dumped our cable subscription.Displays great picture quality for movies/shows coded as HD.Sound system quality transfers great--we have a 5.1 stereo and it picks up the signal with no problem. Streams via our wireless fiberoptic Internet connection via AT&T, and saves our spot when we pause or shut it off mid-show and come back the next day.Only quirk is that sometimes loading lags a good 10 seconds--but that is very rare and seems related to our Wi-Fi traffic, rather than the Roku box itself. Also, occasionally, we'll select a TV episode and it will play something else. But again, think that is due to a quirk rather than the box, and it happens very rarely. Only other nit I have is that the remote is pretty cheap-looking and gets beat up pretty quick and I can't figure out how to sync it with my more durable universal remote. Net-net, we love Roku and would recommend it to friend.

I have been a Netflix user for about 5 years now. I didn't think they could improve on their system, then they started streaming the movies to your computer. Then they came out with the ability to stream to your TV. I had played with it via XBox 360 and was very impressed. I just bought the XR-HD and I must say once again they got it right. Sure some people will complain about the load time but if you have a fast internet connection it isn't a problem. Others will complain about the image quality, but with a good TV, that doesn't seem to be a problem either. I have yet to not find something I want to watch, and that is coming from a person who has rated over 2900 films on Netflix. They seem to add more movies in the standard format and in HD weekly, so the selection is growing. I will be buying a Roku for each TV's in the house and highly recommend it to anyone that might be considering purchasing one. I do wish it had the ability to stream YouTube, but Pandora is a nice addition.

We really enjoy watching NetFlix movies using ROKU. Our ROKU is connected to a Sont Bravia TV using the HDMI setup which gives us a very good picture viewing using standard DVD formatted productions. The unit gives us access to a large variety of video choices which further adds to the entertainment value of this unit. I did experience some problems setting up my unit due to lack of detailed instructions, but ROKU custumer service patiently worked with me to get everything working. It does take a while to load NetFlix, search available movies and start the movie, but it is better than waiting for the mail and you don't need to plan ahead. We have had a couple false movie starts which took a few moments to correct itself without any program loss. Usually movies run without any problem. I hoping to be able to use the ROKU as a bridge to my computer for viewing photos on my TV but have not had the time to try this and ROKU does not provide any guides for it's operation or setup.

It really is so cheap relative to monthly cable subscriptions - great that they are partnered with Netflx. Without the Netflx partnership, I'd barely have a use for it. I experience occasional internet outages where I live and that makes Roku temporarily unusable - that's a bummer. I wish it had a feature more like DVR where you can pick and upload shows to save for later viewing rather than only the instant-stream viewing. Also the FF and RWD options are somewhat difficult to control and take getting used to. I don't have an HD TV yet, so can't really comment on the picture quality - seems fine. Haven't had any problems with loading quality or timeliness, other than when my internet is down. Programs/movies streamed do not include the 'special features' that usually accompany DVD's, but that's not a huge loss. All-in-all and for the price, I recommend it. It's very easy and will get a lot of use in my house as long as they continue to add movies and programs to choose from.

ROKU, most content is only 720p currently, but that could improve in the future. Its much better than hooking up my laptop to my tv to view Netflix. Netflix, HuluPlus and Amazon are the pay per month services, but if you google roku private channels you can find many free feeds. You have to provide credit card information on first setup or you can't get past the setup screen, nothing will be billed its only to purchase things like netflix if not already signed up.

Expanded cable and satellite services cost too much and offer too little. This is a very cost-effective alternative. and exceed my expectations. I looked at Apple TV but we still have an analog set and didn't find much content there beyond Netflix. This device has a versatile array of input and output connections which work with our older system now and look like they'll be forward compatible for some time. We're enjoying Netflix streaming more than we thought we would. The picture is good on analog and we're anxious to try it out on an HD set. We hope that Netflix will stream 5.1 surround soon. They have plenty of movies and TV series to catch up on. We love being able to watch them any time without dealing with a DVR or pay-per-view. There's enough content there to keep us happy for a long time. Still discovering the other channels. Quality varies but we find the occasional gem. Anxious to see how the USB integration will work. Have recommended Roku to family and friends.
