First, I joined Netflix with my iPad. I signed up for the free trial and spent a few days seeing if there were shows/movies I would actually watch (you can also use Amazon movies, Hulu or crackle, etc.). Yes, lots! Then I researched how I could get Netflix to stream on my TV. The Roku was the best option for me: cheap and easy to use. The next cheapest method was the chrome cast device but that seems to require simultaneous usage of your iPad or phone. Not a good option. Then there are blue ray players and gaming consoles - all of which cost more than this.
After doing research I figured I would get an hdmi cable at the same time as this Roku. I'm not sure why or what they are actually called but I ordered a generic one for about $5. I believe this cable allows the streaming of HD quality TV rather than analog. (The Roku did come with cables to plug into the TV but they weren't hdmi cables and I didn't try them).
Anyway, the Roku and hdmi cable came in about 2 days. At first I freaked because I didn't know where to plug the hdmi cable into my TV but after poking around I found a slot for the cord. Then I plugged the Roku into the electrical socket. I turned my TV to the hdmi channel and pow - there was the Roku!
Turns out I had to actually go online and register the thing before I could actually use it but the registration process took only 5 minutes or so. They DID require a credit card number, in case you decide to pay for content, which I didn't really like. But I was able to quickly log into my Netflix account and get to watching.Read more ›
So I canceled.
And I thought I would get a Roku HD refurbished, I mean it's only $40 bucks! It has Netflix and WiFi, what else do I need (other than an HDMI)?
Little did I know, there was a Netflix update that was on XBOX and Roku 3, and apple TV and many other devices. This update makes browsing Netflix 100 times easier and looks 10000 times better. It also uses Netflix Profiles. Meaning on one paying account, you can have multiple profiles to adjust Netflix to your liking. Perfect for families.
BUT... This amazing update DID NOT ROLL OUT ONTO ANY ROKU DEVICES except for the Roku 3. So, I paid for a worse service. I can't sign into my Netflix Profile, and have to watch the same movies that the rest of my family watches, because the Netflix interface is not good. (Netflix fault for that) It only shows the same 50 titles based on what you watch, so if my daughter is the main Netflix user and all she watches is sappy romance films, that's all I see on the front page, even though *I* have completely different taste. Of course you can search for titles, but seeing that Netflix doesn't have a majority of films that is an awful way to browse.
So, because Netflix hasn't updated their channel on any of the older Roku devices they are worthless to anyone who shares a Netflix account and has different tastes in films.Read more ›

Works great and streams to TV seamlessly.
I will recommend the ROKU to everyone.
The Roku was great at first but after the first year, it started freezing up and get the purple screen of death. I would frequently have to unplug and plug it back in to reboot. Read morePublished 2 months ago by L. Hua
