I purchased this to put away in a drawer in case I lose my original remote control, because if you lose one and you don't have a spare you are SOL on using your Roku. I have the cheapest Roku (the LT) and this remote works fine with it. This remote is flat on the bottom, not like the LT remote which is rounded. As far as the instant replay feature, it's good, but I don't see myself using it often - nice to know it's there if I need to go back a few seconds. BTW, check around, you can find better prices elsewhere, sometimes the Roku site sells them for $2, I got a new one on eBay for $5.

I like this little fellow.

It is the improved remote from the Roku1 series with additional back/info/instant replay buttons. It is infrared and works with all models of Roku digital video players, old and new. If you have the oldest 9-button remote circa pre-2010, this 12-button one is a step up.

It works with Roku 2 players as well, with all channels but "Angry Birds" game - only the Bluetooth gaming remote can. On the other hand, if you are tired of your BT remote from going "to sleep" and taking 5-10 seconds to reconnect - or that it seems to last only couple of weeks on pair of new batteries - infrared is the way to go, it lasts many months and never falls asleep.

In case you lose your remote and have to order another one, you can use the Roku remote on the iPad and iTouch. They also have the instant replay. The battery doesn't last super long on my iTouch, but they are nice to use while you are waiting for your new remotes from Amazon.

I don't understand why Roku would come out with a new remote and no instant replay button like in the previous version. The Netflix/Pandora/Crackle buttons are nice but not nearly as useful as an instant replay button.

As the title says, there is no replay button on this remote.

I got this overpriced remote to replace a lost one for our original roku. (I used the iphone app roku remote for a while until we made sure the lost remote couldn't be found, but it was frustrating to not have a real remote.) This one is over priced at twenty bux (what I paid). I'm not sure if a generic universal remote could have been made to work with a roku, but you can get a basic one for like ten bux. The price a Roku 2 can be bought these days, this price is way too high for just 14 buttons.

The old remote that we lost had a button on it that had a replay symbol (a circled arrow) that when pressed bounced the video playback about 10 seconds back almost immediately. Perfect for when you miss something someone said. Now you have to press the left arrow, and then play, and there is a 5-10 second pause while it buffers before it begins again. Annoying. (#firstworldproblems)

When I received the remote in the mail I wondered if I was sent the wrong model, but even the sticker on the plastic wrapping indicated it was a "Replay Remote". False marketing.

The Original Remote Control for Roku works as designed but is actually different than the original Roku remote. This remote comes with one touch button access to Netflix, Pandora, and Crackle. It lacks a quick rewind button and does not work with certain games such as Angry Birds. Because it does not work with games it does not come with a wrist strap.

Pros:

+ Works for all Roku programming except for certain games
+ Comes with one touch access

Cons:

- Does not work with all games such as Angry Birds
- Lacks a quick rewind button
- Would prefer to see a one touch access button for Amazon rather than Crackle
- A little on the small side

Overall, this replacement remote works well despite not playing games or having a quick rewind button. I would recommend this remote to others.

I wish you could still buy the real original remote. This one has a contoured "ok" button that my kids pull off in seconds. I have FIVE of these remotes missing the middle button because children are monsters and these remotes are not even close to durable enough for a child. My original (square boxy Roku 1 Remotes) have been dropped, crushed, and mangled, held together with duct tape but they still work great, these do not last a day up against my children, the masters of destruction.

I have tried three or four different kinds of glue, to attempt to put the OK button back on, with no success. The best we have done is put a square of duct tape over the entire arrow/OK piece, which sucks.

The last time I ordered these I ordered four. This time I am only ordering one, to replace the one my precious children ruined while over at a friend's house for five seconds.

One star for improper listing. Regular ROKU 2 remote, which works as it is supposed to, but it is not an instant replay remote. (Yes, I looked at the picture before I ordered it.)

Worked just as well as the original did before being chewed up by the dog! I ordered 2, because the dog does like to dine on these things, and he has already gotten ahold of one of the two replacements, but even with the end gnawed off it still works--what more could you ask for?

Replacement remote control was advertised on Amazon.com to work with all Roku devices. It did not work with the streaming stick. We had to order a different, correct remote from Roku itself to be sure we could continue to stream.
