I love Roku! it is so easy to use and works great. I have a built in Roku in our living room TV and I enjoy it so much, I bought this external Roku for our bedroom. it's so simple to set up. the Roku device is so small and takes up no space (you can fit it or stash it about anywhere) and plug the power cord into the box and wall outlet and plug the HDMI to tv and back of Roku then follow the onscreen device setup instructions and your using it 10 mins later. it has a huge app store and it's a matter of going online from phone or other device and entering the onscreen code for each app your activating, then you are logged in and stay logged in for the duration (example: signing into Netflix on Roku, your tv shows a website and activation code that you go to on your phone where you put activation code in, it verifies your account and when completed tv goes to home page and ready to watch Netflix). it works the same which each app you access. the remote is simple to use and you can download Roku remote to your phone also. I think the Roku is the greatest thing made and I have never had a problem with it nor any issues with quality of programming. I recommend it over any other streaming device. here is a picture showing how small it is, I put a small decoration next to it to show how little space it takes up!
