Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player, Model 4200R

Fastest, Most Responsive Roku Ever

Once again, Roku redefines in-home content streaming with the Roku 3 Streaming Media Player. Improving on the already successful Roku 2 XS, the Roku 3 sports an all new user-interface which includes one-stop search, for a quicker, easier viewing experience. Jump directly to the movie or TV show you want, across a library of channels, right from the home screen.

New to the Roku 3 is a dual-band wireless system, compatible with Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, which gives you twice the bandwidth for streaming and decreases playback issues caused by packet loss or network delays. That extra network go-juice will help you stream content at up to Full HD 1080p resolution to any HDMI-compatible HDTV.

More Entertainment Options Than Ever

Many know Roku media players primarily as Netflix streaming devices. And while Roku players have always been the best way to get Netflix onto your TV, they also offer a wealth of other streaming content. The Roku 3 expands on the existing selection, now giving users access to over 750 entertainment channels. Watch new video releases on Amazon Instant video, a documentary on Netflix or a comedy special on HBO GO. Find instructional cooking videos, aerobics classes or local programming from Italy. Listen to an Oldies station on Pandora, or your favorite playlist on Spotify. If you'd prefer more active entertainment, head to the app store and pick out a game like Angry Birds, and play it with the motion-sensitive remote control. With the new Roku 3, your entertainment sources are nearly unlimited.

For those who like to use their Roku 3 when others are trying to sleep, built into the remote is a headphone jack; simply plug in the included earbuds and stream away without disturbing anyone else. Free iOS and Android apps give you the ability to control your Roku 3 with your smartphone, or transfer content from your phone to your HDTV. The USB port gives you yet another way to share your personal media, and the onboard MicroSD slot lets you add extra storage. With such a wealth of options in such an unassuming package, it's time you made the Roku 3 the hub of all of your multimedia entertainment.

I purchased the latest 2015 refresh of the Roku 3 knowing that it was just something that would make my non-smart TV have smart TV capabilities. My experience is that this Roku 3 does just that. The only issue I have is that this device starts acting sluggish and no longer will respond to voice searches after about 72 hours. The only solution is to restart the device using the Restart option that is in the in the options menu, I believe it is the System option. The restarting in and of itself is acceptable, I really would like the software team to put out a patch that at least has a restart option in the home screen, so that it is at least easy to perform the mandatory restart every three days in order to use the Roku 3.

Just like my Roku 2 full of bugs...

I got the Roku 3 for Father's Day 2015 and I thought it would be an improvement over the old Roku 2 that I owned. But it is just the same it freezes up and I constantly have to unplug it to restart it. Or remove the app. and re-add apps to get them to work right... The only good thing is the new remote is better than the one that came with the Roku 2. And the setup is easy with an Roku account it loaded all of the apps I had on my Roku 2. Overall a real disappointment...!!! Because it has to be restarted all the time I rate it as "POOR" and it's value as "POOR". I am sure I will return it before my 30 days are up. I have an Apple TV and it works flawlessly. I got the Apple TV when my Roku 2 started having problems. The only draw back is it only comes with the apps it is loaded with. But you can cast anything from an Apple device right to your TV.

Disappointing

By 

from Sebring, Florida

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

I expected to get the TV programs that I watch for free on Roku. Instead, I will have to pay big bucks for them. It will cost me 5 or 6 times less to get a TV provider again. I am so disappointed.

Many Years of Great Service!

By 

from Minneapolis, MN, United States

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

We've had a Roku 2 for about five years and it has been a fantastic solution for us. About six months ago we noticed the Roku would freeze and we had to reset it to get back on. I reported the intermittent issue by email with Roku Customer Support and they promptly replied with suggestions. We tried several things but couldn't get it to stop. So about a month ago Roku offered to replace our Roku 2 with the latest Roku 3 player. They gave me an RMA and I shipped the old one. A few days later we got the shiny new Roku. I am very pleased with every interaction I've had with this great company. They rank in the top three when it comes to technology companies' tech support. One piece of advice: if at all possible you want to use a hard wired network connection, not the wifi. Wifi is slow, and you can end up paying for really fast internet speed but get nothing for it because the wifi connection is the bottleneck. I have a Chromecast also, and it is a dog compared to the Roku.

Excellent Choice

By 

from Las Vegas Nevada

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

I do very few reviews but this product is a pleasure. I tried the so called equal stick but to this product there is no comparison! As soon as I had it working on my TV,I realized its features were what I was expecting and far exceeded the other brands. I have only had it a week and Im still exploring and being amazed at what it will do. My compliments on a product I regard as excellent and one of my most satisfying purchases. Gerald Gooch

Great Steaming Box

By 

from Orlando, FL, United States

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

The Roku 3 is a very powerful content rich little steaming box that can provide all your entertainment needs. It is very simple to install and setup. Within 5 minutes I was online adding channels for content. Channels like Netflix, Hulu, and Spotify works flawless on my Roku 3. I would absolutely recommend Roku to anyone looking for an inexpensive streaming box. Thank you Roku keep up the great work!

Software is Excellent!

By 

from Space Coast, Florida

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

I bought the Roku 3 to replace an older Roku 2 that had some software quirks. These weren't problems, just inconveniences. The 3 has excellent picture quality, ease of use and terrific software. The 2 went upstairs to my oldest TV and is happily in use there.

Comments about Roku 3 Black Streaming Media Player:

Bought this Roku 3 to replace a Roku 2. Miss the "rewind 7 seconds" button; also, unit performance seems sluggish after waking from sleep.
