The Roku 1 is the newest unit in the Roku Streaming Player line. The Roku 1 is just above the Roku LT in price, but comes with better features. The most obvious of these is the ability to stream at full 1080p HD, where the Roku LT can only do 720p. 1080p is also called Super HD (SHD), or HDX if you watch VUDU. These designations are designed to further distinguish 1080p HD from 720p HD. Get used to them, you will see them more often as time goes by. The Roku 1 has a new remote control design, somewhat slimmer than previous remotes, with rubberized buttons. This is not one fo the motion control remotes, so there is no lanyard. There are the usual controls found on other Roku remotes, including Back Arrow, Home, the D-pad arrows for directional control with the OK button centered on the D-pad, FFW/RWD, Play/Pause, Replay and Asterisk. But there are also four quick access buttons at the bottom for accessing MGo, Blockbuster, Netflix and Amazon, just a few of the more popular channels from the 1000+ available on Roku devices. The user interface is the newest one available, the same one found on the Roku 3. Navigation is simple and intuitive, I have no trouble getting to the channel or device setting I want. The search tool is awesome, allowing you to search all of your channels for content, not just Netflix or VUDU, for instance. Type in the name of a movie, actor or director, you are then presented with a list of matches and which of your channels you can find that content on. Select the channel/provider you prefer to watch and you are taken directly to the content to begin watching. Funtional and easy, I can't say enough about this feature. The Roku 1 comes with an HDMI output, as well as standard RCA connectors for audio and video. There is no SD card slot, nor is there a USB slot for viewing/listening to your own content. This unit is wireless only, so no Ethernet port, either. If any of those features is important to you, you may want to look at the higher-end Roku 3 instead. Also note the Roku 2 and Roku 3 have remote controls with headphone support, but the Roku 1 does not. Setup was easy and mostly automated. You need a wireless network, and you will need to know your wireless access code. You will also need to create a user account on the Roku.com website. Once the Roku 1 is connected to your wireless network, it will connect to the Internet and automatically update itself to the latest software version, followed by a reboot. After that you will be presented with a special code that you enter on the Roku website under your user account, linking your Roku 1 to your user account. From there you are ready to take a look in the channel store and start adding content to your player. You will want to go into the settings menu and change from 720p to 1080p, if your TV supports 1080p. The Roku 1 is set to 720p by default. I did notice the unit runs a little warm during use, so give it some space and decent ventilation. My unit is plugged into the switched outlet on the back of my surround sound receiver, so when the receiver turns off, the Roku 1 turns off with it. Might as well save a little power and extend the life of the Roku 1 and its power supply. Altogether, the Roku 1 is a nice little package. For a few dollars more than the Roku LT, you step up to full 1080p HD. It is another great product from Roku, filling a nice gap between the cheap LT model and the more expensive Roku 2 and Roku 3. A good choice among many.

This is the second Roku we have purchased and my second disappointment. I thought that maybe the first one was a lemon but I guess they are all the same. Sometimes we have sound and sometimes we have a picture, rarely do they occur together. Customer service was great when we did the online chat and they helped me to fix the problem. I asked if this would fix it permanently and they told me yes. Unfortunately that wasn't true. We have tried changing HDMI cables as well as plugging it into a new port on the TV. It worked for about a minute and then we were back to square one. Who wants to unplug and replug their electronic devices and troubleshoot each time they use them. I feel like such a sucker because I purchased two of them.

Remote gets stuck

By

Comments about Roku 2 Streaming Media Player:

I like the ROKU, but you have to press the remote several times before it changes to what you want. Don't like that. Other than that I'm enjoying it.

Nice cable alternative!

By 

from Ararat, NC, United States

Comments about Roku 2 Streaming Media Player:

Our family decided it was time to cut the cord, and after much research we decided to purchase a Roku 2. Awesome selection of channels, and very easy to use. 2 complaints: no on/off power button, and occasionally undesired (not kid friendly) movies/shows will be advertised on the home screen.
