MAIN NEW FEATURES
Voice search – The voice recognition is not perfect, but it definitely beats trying to scroll to type one letter at a time! While it’s great to have voice search built into the remote, you can just download the app for your phone to use voice search with older Rokus. (As a result, you don’t need to buy a new Roku 3 to get voice search, but the Roku 3 remote’s voice search doesn’t have reliability issues like the app.)
Other new features … Well, in my opinion, there are not many other substantial new features. That being said, the new Roku 3 is still an amazing player (because it has the same great features as the old Roku 3). I cannot tell any difference in processor speed between the old Roku 3 and the new Roku 3.
WHAT’S NOT INCLUDED
Roku 3 actually includes almost everything you’ll need. Here are a few other things you’ll need:
- Credit card (to pay for movies and shows)
- HDMI cable
- Mount (If you have a WALL-MOUNTED TV, you’ll need a mount to attach Roku to your TV.)
The main reason to buy a Roku is that Roku is not trying to push you towards certain content providers. Apple TV, for example, does not allow you to access shows and movies from many sources. Fire TV tries to encourage you to buy content from Amazon (although a few other content providers are available if you look for them).Read more ›
Called Roku, spent hours and hours trouble shooting with them. Then sent the unit back in and they still haven't returned a new one. When I asked to speak with a supervisor, the first person hung up on me. The next one asserted he was a supervisor and there was no one higher than him.
I don't think I would by this product again simply because of their service.
The new Roku 3 (4230)'s voice search works easy enough - just press the search button and speak what you're looking for. This search button does however replace the jump back/replay button. The functionality is a bit hit or miss - it seems overly finicky compared to voice search on Amazon Fire or even Android TV - but when it works the results seem better, showing across multiple service providers (Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Vudu, etc) and not a select few. To be fair the hit/miss aspect seems more with Roku's search sometimes than voice not working out right.
The new Roku 3 (4230) keeps the updated processor of the previous Roku 3 (4200), which in comparison to previous processors allows for apps to load almost instantly - it's most noticeable with the dedicated app buttons (Netflix, Amazon, Rdio, and Hulu) which go straight to their respective applications. You get the wi-fi direct remote (not IR) so you don't need to worry about aim, complete with the headphone jack for private listening (a must have for the bedroom or late nights).
You also get access to what is, arguably, the best streaming media device. Sure there's specific features/reasons you might prefer Apple TV, Fire TV, Android TV, or WD but as an overall it's hard to beat the selection of content on Roku. Add to that the ability to follow movies for release and sales and you're looking at the most content focused device and without a specific platform to push forward (Apple TV has iTunes, Android TV has Play, etc) you get something putting pure content first and not simply the specific store.Read more ›
This is now working perfectly, and I really like the product. Please purchase from a seller you trust with a decent return policy and NOT from Roku directly, just in case there is a problem. Roku's customer service and technical support are terrible. I'm confident that amazon would've taken care of me if it came to that. And in case you experience the same problem I described in my review, I fixed it myself by performing a factory reset. After hours with technical support and speaking to multiple people, not one of them suggested this. My next step would've been returning it to amazon if I didn't figure out how to fix it myself.
* My unit is brand new and defective (bought it 3 weeks ago}
* I've spent hours working with tech support without any resolution
* I have 70 days left (out of 90) of free tech support
* They charge money for tech support!!!!
* Tech support is outsourced to India and you'll experience different standards in professionalism than what you were hoping for.
* Don't spend more for voice search feature, it will recognize less than half of the shows and movies you ask for.
* Roku doesn't stand behind their own products.
I have been using roku devices for many years, since the first model roku. I've recommended roku many times. This was my 4th roku purchase, and for the first time I am disgusted with this company. Not the product (hey, defects happen) but with Roku support team. You should know in advance what you'll be up against in case you receive a defective unit.
The unit I received mostly works. The defect is that it will not work with the roku app, even though they're connected to the same network.Read more ›
