5.0 out of 5 stars Roku >>> Wii, July 4, 2014

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Roku -2710X-B Roku 1 Streaming Player (Black) (Certified Refurbished) (Electronics)
Only had it for 2 days, so i'll update in a few months as to its quality. I bought it to replace my Wii which has been acting up for some time now. The Wii was starting to annoy me very much with its constant screen blackouts and extremely slow navigation (I'm using Amazon Instant Video). Now with the Roku, I can start watching movies and shows almost immediately. I enjoy watching programs while I eat. Before, I would have finished 1/2 my meal by the time my show started. With the Roku I no longer worry about timing my eating and viewing. Plus, the navigation and response is much quicker on the Roku; a press of the button gets instantly registered whereas the Wii takes 2-5 seconds to accept an input. Compared to the Wii, the Roku is so much more convenient, saves times, can stream in HD, and provides a plethora of options to watch. Definitely worth the money.

As to this unit being refurbished, who would have thunk it. The only giveaway is the plain cardboard packaging.

Update: about a year now. Even though it's discontinued, I just want to provide an update and say that this never failed on me and doesn't seem like it will ever fail.
