"Thought it was going to be great, but..."2.0 starson by abrewer0820
Pros: Streamed Netflix well. Easy to set up and configure.
Cons: Absolutely bogged down my network completely. When the Roku was playing, every other wireless device in my home would run either run extremely slow, or not run at all. I even sought help from Roku who did offer some possible solutions, but no luck.
Summary: Returned the Roku. Could not tolerate it bogging down my network.Before anyone says that my network is just not strong enough to handle it... I can stream Netflix on multiple other devices at the same time with no issue. I.e., I stream it through the Wii in one room, through my Xbox in another room, plus have two PCs and my Android phone all using the network concurrently. The Roku does not share well with other devices...
