Roku plug detail 1. Wired or Wireless, The Choice is Yours
You can connect the Roku player to the Internet using most broadband providers (such as a cable modem or DSL connection.) You need at least 1.2 Mbps to watch movies instantly on the Roku digital video player with decent quality. The faster your connection, the better the quality (although this rule-of-thumb peaks out at about 5mbps). Use the built-in Wi-Fi capabilities to connect to your wireless network, or use the Ethernet port for a wired connection. It's easy either way.
back 2. Connect to Virtually Any TV, New or Old
The player comes complete with everything you need to get connected right away. It even includes the standard yellow, white and red cables. Or use the HDMI or component connections with your new HDTV.
remote 3. Control is at your Fingertips and Easy to Understand
The Roku player is easily controlled using the handy included remote. Choose the item you want to watch, play, fast-forward, rewind, pause and resume play later, just like watching a DVD.

I purchased this in January, 2009 to add some additional value to my Netflix subscription. It has far surpassed my expectations, and has proven to be one of the best $100 I have spent in a long time. This is true especially in a down economy.

Here are the pluses, and the minuses, I have seen in the product after 2 months of daily use

Pluses:
1) Huge money saver: Having this box has allowed me to drop from 3 disks unlimited to 1 disk unlimited as well as drop cable entirely. The addition of Amazon on Demand is an even bigger value in that newly released movies will also be in abundant supply.
2) Ease of Set-up and use: I am a die hard apple fan because of their ease of use, and the set-up process was the easiest I have ever experienced. In less than 4 minutes I was watching a Netflix stream on my Sony HD TV. Also, the user interface is as straightforward as possible. A lot of thought went into it, and it shows. Bravo for one of the simplest interfaces I have ever utilized.
3) Clarity of picture: Unsrupassed and almost full HD. Often forget we are streaming over the internet.
4) It just works as advertised!
5) Customer Service: Video was skipping and contacted the customer service. You would never believe that a real live person answered the phone within 5 minutes on a Sunday night. Turns out it was a nework problem (see below). Amazing customer service!

Minuses:
1) The quality of your picture is tied to your internet speed. This has only been an issue once. My Charter Cable modem service averages above 4 meg downstream, but every once in a while the network performance drops. A call to charter fixed it. This is in no way an issue with the device, just something to be aware of.

I was already a rent-by-mail convert -- switching between Blockbuster and Netflix for a couple of years. For an extra $99, this box has already piped in hundreds of hours of tv shows and movies, filling in the wait times between disks. The Netflix instant movie selection started out not great, but recently they have rotated in some big films like the Lord of the Rings trilogy, pop hits like Superbad, the original "Grindhouse" double feature package, as well as lots of older and more obscure releases for adventurous cineastes like me, with NO extra charge to a regular Netflix membership. The addition of Amazon streams will soon make a good thing even better, and more providers should be coming into the mix soon. I've had the player since its introduction in May, 2008, and I've gotten enough mileage out of it that if it blew up today, I'd have gotten way more than my money's worth.
I've heard a fair number of technical complaints from other owners, but mine hasn't even had a single glitch since purchase. With the exception of occasional problems at the Netflix servers, and rare errors in Netflix video encodes (for instance, they sometimes accidentally put the director's commentary track onto a video intead of the theatrical soundtrack, but I think they've tightened up the quality control recently in this respect), it JUST WORKS! In these economic times, there's a lotta bang for the buck in this tiny box!
UPDATE: It's September, 2013, and I'm still getting huge use out of the same little box after nearly 6 years...the newer models are a little prettier, but don't offer any must-have features.

This little box rocks. I have killed of all but my local channels on cable. This may have been the best $99. I have spent in years. My sons and I use it everyday. At first I was concerned about content, but there are like 12000 things to choose from...We have watched season 1,2 and in the process of season 3 of Heroes. You have no idea how cool it is to see shows like this with no commercials. Tons of movies to choose from. I really like the fact that the company has more than delivered on what they promised. I bought the box to add to my Netflix and now I can get amazon video on demand as well, and it didn't cost anything for the upgrade. How often has that happened...I am getting a ton more than I paid for. LOVE IT.

Just received mine two weeks ago. I like it when it works. Specifically, every once in a while the roku will lock up during play back then reboot. I contacted roku suppor and they had me reset the device to factory defaults and re-activate it. They said to call back for an RMA if the reboot problem continues. Note, my roku also has issues with my Samsung LN40-A550 display. Apparently, the back light setting sometimes interferes with the roku rermote. When this happens you must put the roku remote directly against the roku IR receiver otherwise it won't recognize the roku remote instructions.

BE SURE to check out the roku forums prior to purchasing this unit. This way you can see what issues others are having and if they are able to be resolved.

February 18, 2012:
Caution: Unsurprisingly in the world of consumer electronics and popular video media, in the interim since I wrote this review everything has changed. Not only has Roku introduced newer models offering many more channels of content, but Vudu no longer produces their own, dedicated hardware devices. In addition, the entire streaming playing field has shifted and evolved. In this context, my words and experiences have become extremely dated and are completely unreliable as the basis for a current buying decision. Read accordingly, please.

Over several weeks in September, I conducting a shoot-out between the Roku and the Vudu streaming video players with both connected to my AV system. My equipment included a recent-model 52" HDTV, a PS3 for playing BD, Comcast digital set-top box with HD subscription, and a fairly high-end integrated stereo tube amp with a couple of omni speakers positioned on either side of the TV. Eventually, I settled on the Roku and returned the Vudu to my local Big Box electronics store. Why?

Here are the criteria I used to make my decision, indicating which of the two systems came out ahead in each.

1) IMAGE QUALITY
There is no doubt that based purely on maximum video quality capabilities of each box, the Vudu wins hands down via its HDX option. While this provides near-BD quality picture and sound, the Vudu can only achieve this by pre-loading the program onto its internal drive, a process which takes a minimum of several hours following placing the order. While this is not strictly speaking streaming video, it is certainly the next best thing. It also appears that Vudu has more streaming/downloadable HD/HDX content than either Netflix or Amazon VOD.
