I have 3 of these devices. I bought them 3 years ago and they all still work great. I also have bought a smart tv since that time but I prefer the Roku. It has more channels available than my smart TV and the process time is must faster. I have tried watching Netflix on my Wii, PS3, and Smart TV but the Roku has a much faster processing speed. Some say that has to do with the internet but I have the same internet throughout my home and the Roku's are 10-1 better. BTW...I also have HBOgo on the Roku, which my smart tv and Wii cannot support.

Simple unit that houses my Netflix as well as other online streaming video(s). Refurbished is just the same as new!

I needed something so I could watch Netflix and Hulu on my old TV that doesn't have a HDMI port. This fit the bill and works perfectly.

I've been thinking about getting one of these for months now but was too intimidated with the technology. In retrospect that was silly of me.... And I'm glad I finally got this baby.

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.

This is my second roku. The first went on the main tv and now this one for the secondary one. Who can beat cutting your cable bill by 100 bucks! All you need is internet (wifi) and you have tv. That simple. Sure you do not get what cable offers but if you are williing to wait a day and pay for hulu you can watch almost everything. You always have a choice of what to watch and no more dependance on what the networks want to show at any given time.

First off, I used the Roku as a Netflix box. That's all it is to me. There are other good channels but the ones I'm interested in aren't free. My Xbox live expired, and up till that point I was paying $60 a year to occasionally play online, but mostly to watch Netflix. And I figured, hey, I already pay for Netflix, why do I have to pay for a service to watch Netflix?

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.

This is our second Roku player. we have one on each of our older tv's in our bedrooms. It works great to stream Amazon Prime movies on a older tv. We also love the My Media feature on it where you can watch anything that you have on your computer on your tv.
