"Terrible with Netflix."1.5 starson by tonyram57
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.
Thanks for your submission!
