Top Customer Reviews
I have been looking at getting a Roku for a few months now and when I saw that the Roku 2 had just been released, I figured it was time to take action. I've never owned a streaming video box like the Roku before, but I have a Wii I use to watch Netflix and my parents have an Apple TV that I've watched Netflix and other video on. I was originally planing to get an Apple TV, but decided on the Roku for a few reasons. First, the Apple TV requires a HD TV, which I don't have, whereas the Roku can handle both a regular TV and HD (nice if I upgrade :). Second, as much as I love Apple products, I wanted a device that had more streaming selection. Specifically, a device that had a Crunchyroll channel. And finally, the Roku is just the least expensive device of this kind.
So I got my Roku yesterday and had it set up in about 10 minutes. It would have been quicker if I had been using a computer instead of an iPad. The Roku itself is TINY. A little taller than the Apple TV, but much smaller around (it fits in the palm of my hand). It comes with an A/V cable, the power cord, a remote, 2 AAA batteries (for the remote), and a very short manual (it doesn't need a long one). To set it up, you plug in the cable and cord, hook it up to the TV and power, then turn on TV and set to the correct input. Like the Apple TV, the Roku doesn't need to be turned on and off, it take so little power in its standby state that you just leave it running. Once the Roku is connected to the TV you have to set up the network connection, which is super easy. Then you have to create an account on Roku.com (this requires a computer), which is where you are required to enter a credit card for any purchases you might make on the device.Read more ›
I now have 2 of these little boxes one connected to a HD TV and one connected to my old 27 inch CRT TV. I'm just as impressed today as I was when I got my first one back in August. They at Roku have continued to add content both free and paid. I only have one complaint and its not all due to the Roku itself, the live content just isnt there yet, I have NBA Broadband and I gotta tell ya if ya wanna stream on ROKU WAIT!! The NBA has it all messed up and I have yet to be able to watch anything (even tho I'm paying for it.
Please make sure before you buy that you have a good internet service provider (ISP) and a decent wireless router. If you don't have enough bandwidth Roku cannot perform correctly, and there is nothing worse that choppy movies that need to keep reloading!! Rule of thumb 5Mbps absolute minimum some will tell you it will work with as little as 1Mbps, it'll work but barley! Be sure to test your speed at a site like speedtest net to get you download speeds.
- It's small. Like really small. About half the size of the original, and a bit bigger than a couple decks of cards.
- Comes with HDMI. Not a bunch of inputs/outputs to confuse unsophisticated users.
- Extremely easy to set up. Head to the website, and 2 minutes later, you're ready to go.
- Sets up via wireless.
- No indicator showing the current picture quality level
- The picture quality was very, very, very poor. I swapped the old and new ones a few times, and consistently got a much, much lower quality and lower bandwidth picture from the new one.
Overall, I can't recommend this due to the picture quality issues. This unit uses dynamic bandwidth, so I couldn't determine if it was messed up due to this unit's design, or if it was just drawing poor bandwidth. An item like this is pointless if every picture looks like circa 1987 picture quality on an old, beaten up VHS.
Update: 12/3/2011 - in response to several comments, I've used this back to back with the original Roku Netflix player. The original has the bandwidth for the highest quality every single time. This one, as stated, doesn't show the current picture quality level with an indicator, and consistently looks much more pixellated, artifact filled, and lower quality than my original box from ~2-3 years ago. I still can't recommend this new version.
We considered the Logitech Revue (Google TV), AppleTV, and Roku. Roku not only seemed to have the widest selection (although Logitech Revue theoretically has the whole web, Hulu and the major TV networks have blocked their access on it), but Roku is also the simplest. I love simple.
The Roku arrived a day and a half after I ordered it and once I opened the box, it took about fifteen minutes to have it up and running. If you are going to connect it to an HDTV, you have to buy the HDMI cable separately. Fortunately, I already had a cable, but they really ought to include one. The old-fashioned red, yellow, white audio/video cable is included.
The Roku box is really light and small, about an inch tall and three or so inches square. The remote is about half the size of a standard remote and only has a few buttons. Batteries are included.
So far we've watched Amazon prime videos without any problem at all, as well as the BBC news. Looked just like watching TV.
On the downside YouTube is not available as a Roku channel. It seems like that should be a basic option, but it isn't.
It's possible to get a lot of content that is not available via the Roku Channel Store. Just go online and search for Roku and Private Channels. Most of the private channels are the equivalent of video podcasts, such as Washington Week on PBS and the TED talks. I would like to see more streaming content, and it's likely that channels will come and go, just like real TV.
Most of the content is free, some costs a token amount like $2 a year, and some, like Netflix and HuluPlus are around $8 a month.
We're happy with Roku so far and glad we didn't opt for the more complicated devices.
