Top customer reviews
Both could use improvement in being able to customize remote buttons, back light remote and so forth.
OK....Here are the big differences.
Premiere Plus has an Ethernet port and micro SD card slot.
Also, Premiere Plus is HDR (High Dynamic Range ) TV ready.
The Premiere has none of the above listed capabilities. Both are 4K ready.
The Premiere Plus remote is thicker, has a better feel to it (my opinion), and requires 2 AA batteries.
This remote appears to be a Radio Frequency (RF) remote control.
This remote has the headphone jack for private listening.
The Premiere remote is thinner and utilizes 2 AAA batteries.
This remote is an infrared (IR) type remote.
No headphone jack.
If your WiFi internet is spotty in your house, I would definitely buy the Premiere Plus, because it has a wired Ethernet port.
Personally, I like the Premiere Plus better due to the fact of differences listed above.
I bought this to replace a Roku 2, which I moved to my bedroom TV. Setup gets easier with each model, and this one was up and running in minutes. I had to reauthorize all my apps (channels), which was the most time consuming, but not Roku's fault.
I don't find much difference between this model and the Roku 2. It has less connections - solely HDMI - but unless you have legacy equipment, that's pretty much all you need. It is 4k capable, but my tv and avr are 1080p. So I can't really comment on the 4k. However it works fine with 1080p. The premiere also boots much faster than the Roku 2, but really, how often are you booting these things?
Many of my friends and family are going with smart tvs these days. Personally I think that is a mistake. I'd save the money differential for a smart tv, and use it to buy a Roku. The reason? Apps! Nobody is rushing to develop new apps for the myriad brands of smart tv's. They are all developing apps for Rokus, Apple TVs, Fire Sticks, etc. For example, I just cut the cable cord and went with Playstation Vue. Downloaded the Roku channel for it, and was watching it in 20 minutes or so. To my knowledge, you can't get Playstation Vue on any smart tv.
Plus, the technology changes so fast, this stuff becomes obsolete fairly quickly. Do you want your $1000 TV to become obsolete in 3 or 4 years, or your $79 Roku?
As we were chatting, I ordered the Roku 'Streaming Stick'. I ran the same tests on it and guess what... Flawless! The less expensive version (currently) out performs the more expensive, better speced device. I've got the Premiere boxed up and ready to ship back to Amazon for a refund.
