This is the first external streaming device I've ever purchased. I bit the bullet because of Spectrum's switch to all digital signals, which renders old fashioned coaxial cable obsolete -- unless you give Spectrum an additional $11 per month, per TV set, for a converter box. The more affordable option is to buy this item and watch TV via the Spectrum app. My impressions:
1) Cost savings. This item will pay for itself in little over two months given Spectrum's rental fee for a converter box. The rest of the Pros on my list would also be the case if you were renting the box, but the cost savings make them even more satisfying.
2) Possible increased channel selection. If, like me, you're adding this to a secondary TV that never had a converter box, you will now be able to receive all of the channels you're paying for, instead of just the basic 60-70 channels that co-ax was giving me. Looking back, I should have done this a couple years ago.
3) Increased HD availability.
4) Program information and schedules on your TV.
1) Navigability can be an issue. Specifically I'm referring to the fact that you have to open a channel guide and scroll to whatever channel you'd like to watch. If I'm using the Spectrum app on my tablet to watch TV it's not a big deal because with a swipe of the screen, it rockets up and down the channel guide. On your TV, you've got to use the arrow buttons to scroll and it can take time to move from, say, channel 44 to channel 401. I'd like to see Spectrum somehow incorporate a means of entering digits on screen to speed up this process.
2) Not really a con, per se, but you may need to purchase a new router or even pay for faster internet. I was told at the Spectrum outlet that my existing router would be too slow. They wanted to give me a newer router, which would of course cost me an additional $5 a month, but I went online and bought one myself. Nonetheless, before that item could arrive I used my existing $15 router and experienced no buffering issues at all. Even with three devices streaming at the same time. Still, when the new router came, I hooked it up to make sure I had the speed to handle multiple TVs.
If you're looking to avoid Spectrum's price gouging, this is just about the only way to go. Fortunately, it does a great job. I have the sneaking feeling that within a year or two, as I find more and more Roku apps to fit my tastes, this device may be what leads me to finally cut the cord.
As with any Roku, the device is simple to set up and configure, and it's got the choice of an included remote or a downloadable mobile remote app. The app is particularly nice in that it lets you use your phone's keyboard to enter text rather than the on-screen keyboard. The remote includes a universal function to control your TV's power and volume buttons, which is nice enough if you're not using a surround receiver. It lacks the ability to plug in a pair of earphones for private listening that some older Roku remotes have.
Although I had a good wireless signal in my living room, with our old Chromecast, we would occasionally have buffering issues, so using the wired Ethernet port was a huge plus for me. The headphone jack on the remote is a really cool feature too that I didn't initially see much value in, until one night when my wife wanted to sit in the living room reading, while I wanted to watch the Walking Dead. Inserting headphones into the jack automatically mutes the TV which is nice. A word of warning though that when using the headphone feature, it drains the battery on the remote quickly, so I highly recommend good rechargeable batteries for it.
The volume control for my TV is another nice feature as the lower Roku's can't do this and sometimes it's nice to have another remote that can lower the volume in the event we're using the TV for something else.
Finally, the remote finder is a great feature too. With two small kids, the remote gets lost OFTEN and being able to quickly locate it, is a huge time saver.
Overall, I am extremely happy with the Roku, and while sometimes getting the extra bells and whistles isn't always worth it, in this case, I think it is.
