Best for streaming -much better than Smart TVs
Ease of use, great features.
Been using the Roku for about 3 months now and the entire family loves it.
Just easy to use, simple set up and great features. Some people were telling me to just use the smart tv built in apps etc as another option to Roku. Honestly, for me the built in layouts, features , and menus on the TVs just aren't there. The Roku is just EASY. Id rather use the Roku any day just for the nice simple menus alone as opposed to my smart tvs ones.
Easy to install and use
I bought it about a month ago to cut the chord with cable because my bill was outrageous. I have roku with netflix and hulu and a few of the free streaming services and find that I have more movies to choose from than I did with cable and on demand service.
4K streaming built-in. Easy Setup
I bought this product specifically to stream the women's World Cup games in 4K. Glad I did. I've found that most of my favorite channels that I pay for on my satellite provider are also available via streaming on Roku. Now when it is cloudy, I use the Roku to stream what I'm paying for and can't otherwise watch!
I have been using this about a month now, and all I can say is...AMAZING! This player is super responsive and much faster than the platform my smart TV came with. This is, in my personal opinion, better than my friends Apple TV 4K that cost about $70 more. I bought a Roku Premiere+ for my bedroom after using this to replace the Fire TV Stick 4K I was using there, so glad I found Roku
Have had for over a year now. Have some issues with staying connected to the internet even though we have a direct connect fiber optic service. Overall I would recommend.
Roku ultra 4661, go get it.
I recently purchased the ultra because I have a TV that has a built-in Roku and a TV that does not. As I became familiar with the Roku, I liked the available apps (channels) that offer free movies; I cut the cable cord awhile ago and haven't looked back or regretted that decision. There are apps that will need a subscription to watch their available content, and/or sign-in with your cable/satellite provider with the channels (apps) you already receive. But I enjoy the absolute free app channels that cost no additional charge. Granted, you're not going to find new release movies and shows through the free apps, but there are a lot of movies with release dates within the past couple years and a lot of older movies. There are apps to also be able to rent and stream new releases, same app, also offers free movies to watch. And yes, many Roku channels that are free, there are commercials (ads) during the programs, no different than your cable TV programs. I give the Roku Ultra only 4 stars because the Roku built into my TV, functions a lot better. I HATE, the fact that the remote to the ultra does NOT have a mute button. So therefore, you're still stuck using 2 remotes, every time you want to mute. Why Roku deleted the mute button is the most annoying non-feature (my built-in TV Roku remote has a mute button). Also, after linking the Roku remote to my TV, turning the volume all the way down to 0 via either remote, my TV still has sound, I can only mute it, for no sound. Strange. I also dislike that the 4 "quick" link buttons, are predetermined. My ultra has 3 of 4 quick link buttons to channels I don't use, especially a sport channel. My built-in TV Roku, actually had 3 of 4 quick link channels I watch. Basically, you receive whatever random quick link remote they throw in the box; it would be better if Roku would allow customers to customize the buttons they want, seeing how they design and carry them randomly anyway. The remote also has an A & B function that I have yet to discover what they do (my built-in TV Roku does not). I've tried the microphone button, it opened the channel I requested and searched the movies as I requested, it's not an important feature to me, but it worked as expected. I have not used the earphones. The ultra does keep adding channels to my "home" screen, which I keep having to remove. My built-in TV Roku, does not do that. The ultra also insists with a pop-up on adding a memory card for more storage, when loading a channel, my built-in TV Roku has not done that, so I'm to assume, there's a difference in storage capacity for each. I have about 200 apps on my ultra home screen. Adding an additional memory card to the ultra is not a big deal, there's a slot for it, that's nice, built-in TV Roku does not have that (that I know if anyway). Roku is also great for kids, so much free stuff to watch for them as well. Roku also has different games, free and for a fee, right on your TV. It also has made my not-so-smart lack of high definition TV, a better picture quality. Sum it up, no regrets, I'll never be ripped off by cable/satellite again. Would receive 5 stars, Roku itself does, but the no mute button on the remote is definitely a 1 star declass.
Just another roku full of flaws
Its not changed much from the 4640 model it is faster but they at roku have lousy tech support personel and their tech support is out of the country so good luck getting help their and the tech people are having difficult time getting the software update right inaddition to finding why the roku is not performing well after the update are applied i have the 4660rx x2 model and when you first turn it on it give an error message saying i have to remove a channel falied luanch of a channel due to their not being enough space when in fact i have micro sd card installed so i have reboot my device every time i first start it each day so as to not get that error message and this has been going on since the 4600 model was first intraduced and alot of people are still having trouble with the headphone situation
roku ultra model 4640 X
purchased one of these about 1 and a half years ago give or take ,worked fine untill about 2 weeks ago everything went the wrong way . Called Roko and asked for tech dept. and payed $ which they stated every body will have to pay by this July 15 TH, turns out after paying they told me i had to purchase a new and the Roko Primere Plus would be the one to get , well that was another $ plus tax including the $ plus tax i spent for the Ultra . You would think they could have a update but they stated they have'nt figured one out . When i purchased a new one it did not state anywhere about paying $ dollars on their paper work , come to find out i spent money for support warranty and i stated to the person i was talking to , that every body would be paying by July !5 th well i got abused again . I sent a email to Roko telling them about my problem and to see what they are going to do . I'm waiting to see what happens
ROKU broke it and won't fix it.
This thing is totally useless since one of the software updates in 2018. All I get is the audio with a black screen displaying error 020. I have been in email contact with ROKU for months trying to solve this and nothing works. Total waste of money and time. Save yourself a lot of frustration by staying away from this model, ...unless you like the 'old time radio' experience from your new 4K TV.
