From the Manufacturer
Manufacturer's Description -- The Roku player instantly delivers HD-quality movies and TV shows directly to your TV over the Internet. The affordable Roku player is compact, easy to set up and intuitive to use.
As Easy As 1 - 2 - 3
|1. Wired or Wireless, The Choice is Yours |
You can connect the Roku player to the Internet using most broadband providers (such as a cable modem or DSL connection.) You need at least 1.2 Mbps to watch movies instantly on the Roku digital video player with decent quality. The faster your connection, the better the quality (although this rule-of-thumb peaks out at about 5mbps). Use the built-in Wi-Fi capabilities to connect to your wireless network, or use the Ethernet port for a wired connection. It's easy either way.
|2. Connect to Virtually Any TV, New or Old |
The player comes complete with everything you need to get connected right away. It even includes the standard yellow, white and red cables. Or use the HDMI or component connections with your new HDTV.
|3. Control is at your Fingertips and Easy to Understand |
The Roku player is easily controlled using the handy included remote. Choose the item you want to watch, play, fast-forward, rewind, pause and resume play later, just like watching a DVD.

Top customer reviews
Here are the pluses, and the minuses, I have seen in the product after 2 months of daily use
1) Huge money saver: Having this box has allowed me to drop from 3 disks unlimited to 1 disk unlimited as well as drop cable entirely. The addition of Amazon on Demand is an even bigger value in that newly released movies will also be in abundant supply.
2) Ease of Set-up and use: I am a die hard apple fan because of their ease of use, and the set-up process was the easiest I have ever experienced. In less than 4 minutes I was watching a Netflix stream on my Sony HD TV. Also, the user interface is as straightforward as possible. A lot of thought went into it, and it shows. Bravo for one of the simplest interfaces I have ever utilized.
3) Clarity of picture: Unsrupassed and almost full HD. Often forget we are streaming over the internet.
4) It just works as advertised!
5) Customer Service: Video was skipping and contacted the customer service. You would never believe that a real live person answered the phone within 5 minutes on a Sunday night. Turns out it was a nework problem (see below). Amazing customer service!
1) The quality of your picture is tied to your internet speed. This has only been an issue once. My Charter Cable modem service averages above 4 meg downstream, but every once in a while the network performance drops. A call to charter fixed it. This is in no way an issue with the device, just something to be aware of. Check with your service provider on your speed before buying.
2) Direct Ethernet connection recommended for best picture: This is a limitation of my wireless network, but you may also have a similar set-up. My laptop has a G wireless card, and when it gets online the whole network slows down, and wireless video quality suffered. Solved it by using a direct ethernet connection, and recommend for everyone who is able to. Much more stable and very limited intereference.
That is my review to date. If you have Netflix and want to get Amazon on Demand there are few things that will be a pleasure to use and that will provide as much bang for your limited dollars. Thank you Roku, Netflix, and Amazon for such a wonderful product.
2. Here's a brief summary of what I see as the pros / cons:
* You basically need a netflix membership; the other channels are "fluff" in my opinion. The main reason to get this is to watch movies via netflix "on demand". It was not an issue for me because I've been a very happy member of netflix for years. For those who aren't netflix members, you have to weigh the pros / cons of joining (basically if you tend to watch DVDs, then it's almost a no brainer). You also have to understand that via the Roku device, you can't watch 100% of the Netflix library of DVDs; you can only view a relatively small percentage of their DVDs (ie the "watch now" titles). But in fairness to netflix, the "watch now" titles may be a small percentage of the total titles, but the actual number of titles is large (which is why I bought the Roku).
* Speed/ Video Quality etc...: Yes, the time from turning on the TV / Roku and then actually watching the movie does take some time... but not a huge amount of time; I'm guessing... a minute? Not a big deal for me because when you're using this device, you're not channel surfing, but you're actually wanting to sit down and actually watch something. Once you find something to watch, no problem. In terms of the video quality, I think it's "good enough". I can't quantify the quality, but I just watched a fairly recent IMAX documentary and the overall quality seemed good, but I'm guessing it wasn't as good as if I watched it via actual DVD (that's just my guess / feeling). Sound quality if fine etc... Most importantly, I'm running the Roku via basic yahoo DSL and I haven't experienced any stops or buffering issues or nothing like that.
* Set up: the setup takes a bit of time because you have to punch in some passwords via the TV and your cpu, but it's straight forward. The actual set up with the TV is a no brainer if you know how to set up a DVD player to a TV. Very simple, fairly easy. No need to look at a manual etc...
* The price: for what you get, for the stability of the product and no fuss, one of the best deals around these days.
3. Bottomline: for all netflix members and for all who watch a fair amount of DVDs (regular movies, documentaries, concert videos, kids stuff, TV show / series)--> this is almost a no brainer. Note: if you have certain game consoles or blu-ray players, you might be able to view netflix "watch now" titles via those devices already.
