The Roku XD streaming video player works GREAT and the remote is easy to use. The Roku itself is so small you don't really even notice it on our TV stand. We are SO GLAD we purchased the Roku since we're saving so much money a month by not having satellite svc anymore! Our only regret is not doing this sooner!

    The Roku was difficult to set up.
    I phoned the company for help. The CSR was pleasant and helped me get it up and running. BUT.. there was no sound and everything was in black and white. The cables that came with the box did not match the AV outlets on my TV. The CSR had to figure out how to set it up differently. Guess that didn't work either. I was told that I should get a HDMI cable which I did. I could not get the box to work again. I returned the box and do not want another one.

    Roku is the way to go for internet TV

    The ease of setup makes the Roku box perfect for beginners. The reliability and quality have been perfect. The one thing that sets Roku boxes apart from other manufacturers is the constantly expanding list of channels available. Other boxes are designed so you only get the channels that are available when you first purchase the box. When I first jumped in to Internet TV on the TV, I thought I would save a few dollars and buy another brand. Within a few months I regretted not spending the money on the Roku. The only complaint that I have - and I did see this on other reviews before I purchased the Roku 2 XD - is there could be better organization for the channels that you choose to have for your favorites...or maybe a way to search for them or assign numbers in order to get directly to them. This is such a minor complaint however that I haven't adjusted my rating for the box because of it.

    BEST PURCHASE EVER!!!

    It took less than 3 minutes to install (and I'm a girl, and no rocket-scientist)!!! It's the BEST invention EVER, best thing since sliced bread. I'm just sorry I waited so long to get one. BUY 1 NOW! And vudu is awesome as well!!!

    Great product for streaming my netflix.

    I was so easy to set up and start enjoying watching alot of movies and tv programs. Great product for the price and getting it to onsite at store very easy also.

    Upgrade from original Roku

    Upgraded from the original little black box, which was very basic, because of slow downloads and constant problems with reloads. After denials by Netflix and ISP that the problem was related to their service, decided to purchase this unit. So far, no problems with downloads or reloading. Good price, just plug in, follow directions and set up was easy. The remote performs more functions than the original, such as a 5 second rewind in case you missed something, and ability to fast forward instead of going frame by frame, which is great. My only complaint is the SEARCH function with Netflix. I can no longer search for movies or shows by actor's name or character, but title only, which is a definite negative for me because I rarely remember movie titles. As a result, I am forced to do searches online for Netflix and add to my list that way. Not a real big deal but can be annoying at times. The most annoying thing are the breakthrough ads on Pandora for upgrading to commercial free content, something I did not experience on the original Roku box. Kept old box and connected to TV in sewing room for commercial free Pandora. Overall, satisfied with purchase.

    The picture is great in 1080p

    I have been using Samsung Blueray player for my Netflix and also on my Samsung TV, but unfortunately not sure why I was not able to set my Netflix or other viewing experience to 1080p, but with Roku it asked me whether I wanted to set it to 1080p and I said yes and I have been watching movies with it, and it is great. But other than this, I am not sure whether there is any value to it, as the programs are not free, just few but they are not so great. Vevo was good playing music videos, but other than that I have nothing great to say. I thought I will be able to view TV channels for free and replace my cable bill, but it is not true.

    Roku 2, Number 2!

    15 months ago I bought my first Roku 2, a Roku 2 HD. Can't say enough good about it. When I upgraded to a 1080p HDTV in the living room I moved that 720p Roku 2 HD to the bedroom and added a Sony "Smart" Blu-Ray player that had Netflix, Amazon, Crackle and a few other channels for the new 1080p HDTV figuring to completely bypass adding a 1080p Roku. Even though I mainly watch the channels that were on the Sony Wi-Fi Blu Ray player I still wanted a 1080p Roku so I bought an XD last week. The reasons I prefer the Roku to the "Smart" Wi-Fi Blu Ray player are that the Roku is much faster to get watching since the Blu-Ray has to boot up from a cold start and the Roku of course has far more channel selection including the ability to add private channels. Adding private channels is something the Blu Ray player will not do. The Roku draws very little power, less than a nightlight and is always at the ready. Each time I started up the wi-fi enabled Blu Ray player I muttered that I needed a Roku. I was planning all along to buy the new Roku 3 but the Roku 2 XD went on sale Mother's Day week and I figured I'd be just as happy with it for less money, so I made a snap decision on an impulse buy which turns out to have been a good one. I was not needing the Roku 3's wireless headphones in the living room and I suspect that feature eats batteries in the remote faster than in the XD with no headphones anyway. I don't play video games, I watch TV so I don't need the video game function of the Roku 3 either. With my first Roku 2, the HD model, setup went by the book with no issues so I never had any contact with Roku support. However with the XD I kept getting a "011" error. First I went online with Roku chat support, waited about 10 mins in que and was connected to a CSR. After explaining the issue and sending the IP CONFIG data the CSR requested I was instantly disconnected from chat. I pushed button to reconnect to chat and started calling the support phone number on the ROKU support page. The support phone number posted leads to a phone tree which instructs you to "Push 3" for player support. I pushed 3 and instantly heard a dial tone meaning I was disconnected. I tried phoning 3 more times with the same result each time. After about 15 minutes got connected to a different CSR. While waiting in chat que I rebooted the player and it connected fine and I've not seen the error again since. I didn't change anything on my end at all! It has worked perfectly since. I don't know whether or not the CSR changed something in my network remotely that enabled it to connect and will probably never know. I've rebooted the XD unit several times to verify it reconnects with no errors. After this support experience it is easy to see why so many people get frustrated with Roku support and just give up returning the player. There is no excuse whatsoever for posting a non-working support phone number on your support webpage. While I'm not exactly thrilled with Roku's tech support I love the product itself. Both of mine are working great and I use both of them daily. I recommend them for expanding the variety of programming available in a fast, convenient, compact and economical package. With about 4 million players to support I can understand why Roku support isn't more personalized, but if they aren't actually doing phone support they should take the phone number off their support webpage because the "click-dial tone" after pressing 3 as instructed just increases customer frustration and makes Roku support look inept. A note about 720p vs 1080p on Roku's. There is practically no 1080p programming available! Even premium services like Netflix, Amazon, etc go 720p tops. Netflix did a 1080 HD experiment for a while however isn't currently pushing any 1080p at the moment, but this could change by the time you read this. You can get 1080p on Vudu at this moment though. Also the Wi Fi and internet bandwidth requirement for 1080p is much higher than 720p. This really became evident when watching 1080p movies on Vudu. I've ordered an upgrade on my DSL internet from 3mbs to 5 and going to a higher class of wi fi router. That will speed it up enough to make it workable without waiting as long for the streaming to start on 1080p video files and eliminate buffering pauses after streaming starts. Before going to a 1080p player like a Roku XD make sure your existing network can handle 1080p streaming or be willing and able to upgrade it. Upgrading may be a non-issue for cable modem fed wi-fi internet. In fact a 720p player like the HD model is fine for 99.5% of the programming available on Roku at this time. The only real 1080p stuff I've found is on Vudu and that is for movies you've bought the 1080p version of. I knocked off one full star for the support issues I had with this product. The product itself is a 5 star item and working great but I can't explain why it is working now when it wasn't initially. If you have connection issues out of the box as I did with this XD unit, then what good is a 5 star item that won't work with a support system that is somewhat frustrating? Some people just won't have the patience to stick with it. It took about 35 minutes to get the player to connect.

    Streaming Video Player

    I purchased this product after doing some research via the Inter-Net. It came down to the Roku XD and D-Link Streaming Video Player. The D-Link is not only cheaper and includes the HDMI Cable, but the only drawback I could find was I couldn't get the app for Blockbuster and Roku XD was able to download the app for Blockbuster. I also contacted Blockbuster regarding the app for the D-Link Streaming Video Play. According to a Customer Rep at Blockbuster "It won't be happening". If the app was available I would have purchased the D-Link after doing the research. The Roku XD was easy to set up, once I established an account with NetFlix I was able to watch streaming video, the quality of the streaming video was very good with a DSL Connection of only 1.5MB Bandwidth.

    The Roku was difficult to set up.

    I phoned the company for help. The CSR was pleasant and helped me get it up and running. BUT.. there was no sound and everything was in black and white. The cables that came with the box did not match the AV outlets on my TV. The CSR had to figure out how to set it up differently. Guess that didn't work either. I was told that I should get a HDMI cable which I did. I could not get the box to work again. I returned the box and do not want another one.

    Remote CON trol what?

    I practically have to lay the remote on top of the ROKU to turn the channels or use netflix. Im in a small room so its aggrevating

    1. Only if you subscribe to monthly fee services like Netflix or Hulu Plus. There are also some one-time fee channels like Movie Vault which is $3.99 one time for life. There are horror film and western channels for $2 one-time also. What you buy is up to you. You can buy nothing and still get lots of free movie channels. They are mostly really old movies and TV shows on the free channels. If you have more than one TV and use more than one Roku then your subscriptions work on all the boxes on your network for no extra charge.
    by DV123
    2. The only bill you pay is for your internet service and for any paid program apps that you use on the ROKU, such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, HULU + and GBTV.
    by Gemsroadwarrior
    3. the only monthly charges are for the services you choose, such as NetFlix
    by HateShoppingAtAll
    4. not unless you subscribe to hulu plus, netflix or other services. ustvnow offers u free over the air tv, some subscription packages available
    by PCviewer
    5. There are monthly bills IF you choose to add channels that require them (ie Hulu Plus), but there are also free channels. Don't bank on this being your full time lineup for quite some time now.
    by JBWhitley
    6. No, not for the free channels or free programming. You will be required to provide your Netflix account information. If you do add paid programming, you will be warned before finalizing.
    by balysears
    7. No. There are free channels and their are premium channels but Roku does not charge a fee for using their box. Here is a link to some free channels: http://streamfree.tv/apps/roku-private-channels/all/

    1. The Roku line does support many online radio stations such as Pandora and Last.FM among others. You may want to check out Roku's website (www.roku.com) and see if your favorite service is available, if not, contact the service and ask them if they plan on working with Roku.
    by Scenic7PR
    2. yes, you have access to pandora internet radio. just have to add the channel and sign up for a account on the website. You will get a code to link your player to your pandora account
    by jdawgrules
    3. Yes, it has channels such as Pandora (you can create a free account online) and a few other options, but Pandora is the "main" one
    by gatorgirl182
    4. Yes the Roku sounds fantastic on the music channels. There are lots of them. All free except one that I've found.
    by DV123
    5. Yes, via such apps as Pandora, Live 365, etc.
    by Gemsroadwarrior
    6. Yes it has Pandora and some other free and pay services. Pandora's good for a free one.
    by Bellwether874
    7. I have a Roku 2 XD and it has Pandora for "radio" but it also has "Radiotime" so if your radio station (US & other countries) streams to the internet you can probably get it on the Roku box.

    1. You can split the signal to a second set but it would be far better to buy a Roku for each set. All sets would have to watch the same channel and you'd have to go to where the box is to change selections. If the subscriptions concern you, know that when you buy one subscription to any premium channel it is supposed to work on all the Roku units on your network.
    by DV123
    2. No, I don't think you can do that. Roku2 XD was designed for a single TV application. You may want to contact Roku with this question. They might have other products which support multiple TVs. Please go to www.roku.com for more information.
    by mrConsumer
    3. You will need one device for each TV.
    by Gemsroadwarrior
    4. yes, you will have to buy another roku, and go to the computer and to sites like amazon, netflix, and hulu and add the box to your acount and it doesn't cost anything to do that, hope this helps, strkox
    by strkox
    5. you have to have one for each tv
    by HateShoppingAtAll
    6. if you want to view the output from one roku to more than one tv, you will need to split the signal somehow. easier route would be to get more than one, they start around $49, I have a $99 model and plan to get a couple more.
