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.
