"Device that changed my life gets an upgrade."5.0 starson by Neural_Clone
Pros: Small, Easy to set up, stable, new channels coming out all the time, 1080p, memory card slot, usb port, big bang for your buck, gaming potential
Cons: would be nice to stream local media. still waiting for a working SiriusXM channel
Summary: I've been on board since day 1 in 2008. I've had just about every model so far and this one is the best. I know there are other similar devices but this one really is the best. Apple may have mastered mp3 devices, but Roku is the be all end all home streaming device.
Since I bought Roku, I've been able to cancel cable and haven't looked back.
The Netflix channel is my favorite. The Amazon channel is nice is you're a prime member (which equates to free streaming), Pandora is always nice too.
The HuluPlus channel, which I had high hopes for turned out to be a bust. It quickly became overrun with commercials and offered only limited selection.
I highly recommend this device if any of the following apply; you're tired of throwing money away on cable, want to stream your netflix without burning out your game console or just want to have a more complete home entertainment set up.
