I have used Roku for years,including several different models.The best new thing of note is Roku has recently released The Roku Channel,which has hundreds of free movies.It is ad supported.Roku has just about every app you can imagine (YouTube/Pandora/Netflix/Amazon/Hulu/HBO Now) plus tons of more apps in many different categories.Here are some points to consider when deciding on which model of Roku to buy: 1)If you need to connect by WiFi in a room far away from your WiFi router,I would recommend the Roku Streaming Stick PLUS or Roku Ultra. 2)If you have a 4K TV,I would recommend the Roku Ultra or Roku Streaming Stick PLUS. 3)To search for content using your voice,go with either the Streaming Stick,Streaming Stick PLUS or Ultra. 4)If you want a wired ethernet connection,go with the Roku Ultra. 5)If you want to connect to an old TV with RCA/Composite audio/video jacks,you will need the Express PLUS 6)The Express models have a remote where it has to be pointed at the device,unlike the other Roku models. 7)If you are only going to buy one Roku device,I would recommend the Roku Ultra.The Ultra has many unique features that the other Roku models don't such as: -Gaming buttons to play video games -Remote finder to find a lost remote control -Ethernet port for a wired connection -Micro SD card slot -USB Port -Night listening mode (this lowers the volume of loud,explosive sounds and raises the volume of soft sounds like whispers.Very useful!) -Headphone jack on the remote for listening without disturbing others

Roku Streaming Stick HD WITH $35 CREDIT TOWARDS SLING TV AND 30-DAY FREE TRIAL OF SHOWTIME
Roku Channel has hundreds of free movies
Perfect item to cut the cord! I was very hesitant in setting myself free from cable. Then I bought this gadget and subscribed to YouTube TV. It's similar to the more expensive cable including local channels. I saved at least $50 and no more ripoff fees!
I understood I could take this with me when traveling. I can carry it along but am restricted from using it. Disappointing.
This item was bought Oct 2019 and started in March to lose the back panel of the remote. Return date was Jan 2020 so we are 2 months over the deadline. Trying to find a replacement remote but having a difficult time. The stick itself always shows up as overheating...even when we just turn it on. Kinda a bummer...
Satisfied for the price
I prefer Roku Premiere. It's a better product
Always need Restart
This is a brand new product. I find the sound keeps dropping out on the apps. Its weird, because the sound works on the menu screen, but on Netflix or hbo. I have to unplug it to get it to work again. Youtube gets kicked frequently.
I have purchased probably 5 Roku's and this is the first one where the metal part was already broken. I finally got it to work but had to tape it to the back of the TV. Whenever it wiggles even a little, it cuts off.
Doesn't work after June 18th software update.
Ours worked fine up til this week. It does automatic updates. After the June 18th update, it no longer works. Tried software reboot, tried hard reset, took it out and let it sit off overnight then plugged it back in. Still not operational. The only thing that works is the right arrow on the remote. Nothing else. And we did try 2 sets of batteries in the remote as well.
Buy 2, You'll Need A Spare!
I've now had THREE Roku sticks suddenly stop working without warning, and if the other reviews are to be trusted it's apparently not a unique problem. (Even in the 5-star reviews, more than a few people mention their old sticks died.)
My most recent stick was only used ONCE– when I tested it after buying it, so I could be positive it worked since I wasn't going to use it immediately.
The joke was on me, since it worked perfectly until I tried setting it up again, and it no longer worked. So, it either broke itself while sitting in its box undisturbed (which makes no sense), or else it broke the one time it was removed from a HDMI port.
So, if you're getting a Roku Stick, just buy two now, since it's more likely than not that you're going to need that spare in the near future– just don't make my mistake of testing it. Most of them seem to work at least once, so cross your fingers that yours is in the majority, but keep in mind anytime you remove your stick it's like playing Russian Roulette; maybe it will work again, and maybe you should never unplug your Roku on Sundays, major holidays, or during strict quarantine when stores are closed and you can't immediately buy another... Good Luck!
It ok, but it overheating
I bought this like a week ago. Because I was super excited to get my own Roku. My mother has one which made me want to get one. I installed it and watch my favorite show. But there was a problem. My Roku streaming stick start to overheat. It bee doing that a lot. My mother Roku not a problem. But mine it extremely hot. I don't know what to do or if Ishould return it.
