Pros tons of apps to choose from nice compact size,and it has a very very fast processor.the remote is nice because it has a headphone jack but its not a make or break.
Cons I paid the higher price for this one because it has HBO Go, and it has USB SD card slot.was very disappointed HBO only works with certain providers.so Comcast subscribers don't even try it will not work. And the USB ports or horrible.
Summary first of all let me just say I was really excited about buying this product.after reading all of the reviews,and what it had to offer.There are 3 different models but my main reason for choosing this one was because it allows you to use USB ports,and it has HBOgo okay so now that's the good stuff.Actual reality is the USB ports do not work by themselves you have to download an app to get them to read your files and the app do not work very well, and the HBO Go only works with certain providers.So because I have Comcast HBO Go is useless to me,and it is true they have lots of apps to choose from which I thought was really cool but be honest the one's that you really use are paid subscription. But to be honest with you I just think they've been out long enough to have their HBO Go working on all providers,but don't get me wrong I love the whole concept they have they just need to work on it a lot more and get all the bugs out and definitely do something with their USB reader.
No WiFi problems even with multiple devices on the same network
More channels than I can watch
Works with Logitech Harmony remotes
Cons Received an error once saying HDCP unauthorized. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and everything worked fine after.
Summary This box is super fast compared to the old Roku boxes. I have had no WiFi issues with the new box. The old one had to have the connection reset every time I used it. Setup was easy. It's much easier to use than my other devices with streaming capability. It's available at Target with the 5% Red Card discount if anyone still has one of those.
Pros Great little box!!!
Cons Does not have an off switch.
Pros Uses very little power, great Netflix streaming, easy to program from computer and so worth the money.
Cons Does not have an off switch. Other than that, there are no other.
Summary Very great little streamer. I use it in my temporary quarters since I do not have cable in my room. I love it as I can watch different channels from this video streamer. I seldom give 5 stars on products but this is one of the best. I was talked into getting one and glad I got it.
Uses Little Power.
Ethernet and Dual-Band Wireless.
Cons Netflix channel is butt ugly and dated with no features.
Streaming performance is bad with Netflix.
Ads on the channel screen. I pay for a product why should I get ads.
Summary This is not the best streaming box and I should have never got it. When I received it when it first came out I activated it and loaded Neftlix. I was shocked to see how butt ugly Netflix looked. The artwork is squished and low resolution. There is no Netflix Kids etc. When streaming you could not even see the quality of the video or how much time was left.
Well after using Neflix it did stream great though. HD was nice and clear but it did not last. In May I started to have problems when I could not get a HD picture during peak hours (after 8PM EST) also even when I got a HD picture it would drop down to a fuzzy mess then slowly ramp up. I fired up my PS3 with a vastly superior UI and had no problems streaming at 1080 HD.
Then in June everything was good again streaming HD until the middle of July and once again I had poor SD only streaming during peak hours and since then it has not been that great.
Well for the third time I disconnected the Roku 3 and I will be using my PS3 again for Netflix and I am waiting until the 4th Gen Apple TV comes out. I know the Apple TV would be better.
