from Louisville, KY
Great product, easy to use. I was able to reduce my Direct TV cost because I can get better movie selection than paying for premium channels.
Terrific addition to home entertainment

Easy setup either wired or wireless. Easy menu navigation and channel selection. Nice assortment of free channels.
Roku 2 XS
Needed Roku in kitchen and the XS provides CC.
Great multi channel Media Player
from Austin, TX
Most movies on Roku are also on movie providers like Amazon, Netflix, HBO, Crackle, and literally 100s of others. To many to even have the time to watch. If you take standard cable, you'll notice that the movies that are repeat ad nausem on the monthly subscription channels like HBO, Showtime, Movie Channel are routinely available on Netflix and Amazon Prime with the advantage of not waiting for a movie to come around on cable vs. available anytime on Roku.

By Buck the film noir buff
from Seattle, WA
I like the Roku device. However, I do not like the excessive commercials on the free Crackle movie channel. Also, I have a problem with movies launching on Epix. So many try to launch but fail. I have also been disappointed with offerings on HuluPlus and have suspended it's use while I deliberate rather I want to continue with it. I have a NetFlix DVD mail delivery account which I wish to keep so using their streaming is out of the question because of the additional fee. On the positive side, I have watched some very entertaining film noirs on my Roku which is the reason I bought it. I am a fan of vintage film noir.
Very good value
Works well. A Optical/Coax audio output would be great.
Service and delivery comments:
Very prompt delivery

I think the Roku is great! I didn't know much about it before hearing of it on the radio. I bought one after reading the site description. Having bought from ABT in the past, I knew I could trust the site to deliver quickly. We use it to choose the content that we watch and to access movies via the internet and play them on our TV. They look great! The "channels" are much like apps on other devices, just that Roku calls them channels. Some stream live, some are movie databases similar to Netflix (which is also one of the channels) and some are pay servies while many are free. I went with the top end model becuase it has extra storage via the micro SD card and some other features. I'd recommend it highly!
