It's ridiculously easy

From the simple remote to the intuitive interface, Roku 2 was designed to set up in a few quick-and-easy steps. All you need to get started is a high-speed Internet connection (and a TV, of course). The built-in wireless and guided setup mean you can be up and running in minutes. And we bet you don't even have to call your nerdy nephew for help.

 
Included with the Roku 2
  • Enhanced remote with headphone jack
  • Headphones
  • Two AA batteries
  • A/V cable (red/white/yellow)
  • Power adapter
  • Get Started guide
  • 90-day manufacturer warranty
What you need
  • High-speed Internet (like DSL or cable)
  • Wireless router
  • HDMI cable (for high-definition video)
  • Internet browser (for initial setup)
 

In general, the faster your Internet connection, the better the video quality. For the best viewing results, we recommend a minimum of 1.5 Mbps for standard definition and 3.0 Mbps for HD content. To test your network speed, visit either one of the following (free) websites: speakeasy.net/speedtest/ or www.speedtest.net. Please note that your Internet speed may vary throughout the day.

I've had a Roku 3 hooked up to my living room TV for a while now so I thought I'd do a comparison between the two devices.

EDIT: August 6, 2014 - I got a Roku streaming stick and added it to my comparison list - Think of the stick as a very small format Roku 3 that only works over wifi and doesn't play games.

EDIT July 31, 2014 - The YouTube channel is now available on all current Roku models - The 3,2,1 and new streaming stick all have YouTube.

First here is where they differ:

--Roku 3--
HDMI-only - if you have a TV without HDMI inputs then the Roku 3 is not for you
Very quick response on the menu system
Motion remote
Ethernet jack
Came with a nice pair of purple headphones
Netflix with profile support (Netflix on the Roku 2 only links to the primary profile) and better "10-foot" interface
Can control YouTube and Netflix from their respective smartphone apps

--Roku 2--
HDMI and composite (corrected per M. Vyenielo's comment) outputs so it can be used with a new HDTV or an older standard definition TV
The processor is about 1/5 the speed of the Roku 3 - this is only noticeable in the menu system as there is just a small amount of lag but I only notice it when comparing it side-by-side with my Roku 3. It still works just fine and handles even the Super HD Netflix content without a hitch
No motion remote - this only really matters if you use the remote to play games on the Roku. Most people won't miss it
Wi-fi only - No ethernet jack so that there's room for both HDMI and composite outputs.

SUMMARY
Love it, with some minor nitpicks; a much better experience compared to using my Wii for Netflix.

SETUP
Easy-peasy. Choose language, sign in to network, create an account. Done in 5 minutes.
- Minor bug: my wireless network SSID was listed twice.
- Minor gripe: had to give my credit card number, but roku.com indicated that I can remove this later via website.

USE
Overall, the experience is great. The interface is beautiful and easy to navigate. The remote is simple, responsive, and has great range. Previously, I used my Wii to access Netflix, but the remote range was so small that I had to get up off the couch to control the Wii. With the Roku remote I can control things even from the dining room!

One potential point of confusion is the integration with M-Go. The top level menu has Channels (Netflix, Amazon, Crackle, etc) AND "Movies", "TV", etc. At first I thought that "Movies" might mean all movies across all of Netflix, Amazon, etc, but that's not what it is. The "Movies", "TV" and other selections are actually sub-headings for M-Go, a new Roku partner. I guess as a partner they get premium placement at the top menu level. It's not a big deal, but it was a little unclear to me.

+ Interface is clean, bright, sharp (at least with my HDMI connection) and intuitive.
+ Remote range is much better than Wii
+ Everything feels pretty snappy.
- Minor gripe: Rewind seems very small (7 seconds?)
- Minor gripe: Backarrow button sometimes doesn't work and you need to use the home button.

CHANNELS
When you setup the Roku you are prompted to select from some 20+ channels. I found out that there are actually more than 1000 channels available! You can see them on [...

We are in our 60's and can remember, honestly, when tv was a whole lot better.  We had better movies, sit coms and mysteries.  So now we much prefer the British Mysteries and Comedies and the ol spooky movies from the 50's, 60's and 70's.  Being a Vincent Price fan and Bela Lugosi fan you can tell what era we are talking about.  We had been paying incredible amounts of money for cable TV of which we watched perhaps 3 or 4 channels. We really hate the reality shows, many news shows and the current sitcoms are incredibly bad. So we decided to try Roku.  We got it from Acorn TV and we did have one minor problem during hook up. We called Roku and got a gentleman who walked me through a few steps and that corrected the problem.  Since then, we have had 3 other times that a glitch came up.  In 2 cases it seemed to be a problem of the actually channel we were trying to watch. In all cases a call to Roku fixed the problems.  Only once did it actually take one day to get fixed because the problem came from the channels (Drive In movie Channel) problem.  But it was fixed. Plus if there had been a problem you will get a follow up phone call and e mail from Roku to make sure the problem stayed resolved and you are happy.  Can't beat that !!  So, that being said let me tell you that we sooooo enjoy Roku.  If we want to watch something local we can since we kept our local channels at a pretty cheap price.  But 90% of the time we are watching Roku.  It is so much fun to us.  We can watch film noir movies from the 40's, we can watch sci fi from the 50's, we can watch movies from all the eras, we can watch documentaries, news information, etc. Some of the channels you will have to pay for.  That is up to you.  We have only spent money on 2 channels that charge (example $1.99 and that is it.Read more ›
