"Netflix menus need a serious update. No Netflix Kids."1.5 starson by dfichtner
Pros: Fast. Lots of channels (see cons). Great HD video quality, once it buffers.
Cons: Netflix menus are not up to par with newer updates to other players. No Youtube. No bitstream audio out (even my RCA player has that).
Summary: Really disappointed with Netflix on this machine. The menus are stuck in 2011. All of the advanced features available on other players are absent on the Roku. Roku forums discussion about this topic yielded angry fanboys who want to brag about hundreds of channels, and blame Netflix for the lack of updates. Then they said I was making a big deal out of nothing, because I could just add them to the Instant Quene another computer, then play them on the Roku. Are you kidding? That way of doing things has gone the way of the dinosaur on other players. I don't care whose fault it is, as I just want a unit that has the updated Netflix options. I bought this to replace my older RCA cheapee (which is slow). Because the Roku has no Netflix kids, we're putting the RCA back in the living room.
