Great alternative to cable and so much cheaper! Absolutely love it!
We had trouble streaming Netflix through our DVD player, it was choppy and very slow to start. With the Roku Streaming Stick it is fast and with setting up through our surround sound we even have HD sound. We are very happy with our Roku Streaming Stick.
For a non technical person like myself, it was extremely simple to set up.
Plus I got the older remote with the direct Netflix button.
Perfect for a bedroom TV!!!
I echo the review already written/ The stick itself seems OK though I have had to change the picture (identity) twice and it was only installed Christmas Eve. I also think the remote isn't very good. Need to press many times before anything happens - with new batteries too.
I have been using this for 4 months now, the stick itself is ok although is does slow down after some time and a restart needs to be done.
The main issue is the remote, it is horribly not responsive, I need to press the buttons 3 or 4 times for the unit to get the command and that's with new batteries.
I bought this as a second unit for the bedroom TV, with a Roku 3 in the living room. It is definitely pokier than the Roku 3, but I knew that when I bought it. Not a big deal. The only Issue I have is that it ships with different remotes. I recommended the unit to someone and ordered it for them about a week after I got mine. Theirs came with a better remote. It has the direct/shortcut buttons to NETFLIX, YouTube, etc., and a more tactile directional/OK button. Mine lays flatter to the remote so it's a little harder to blindly feel with your thumb. Again, no real big deal but I would have preferred the better remote.
Works great easy set up.
Good choice of apps, some free content in Canada, but I am using it mostly with the Plex app to stream my own content. Never crashes, the remote works fine.
This thing does exactly as advertised. At this price point it's extremely fast. So impressed with this little gadget I'm buying a second one.
Plus having the separate remote is super handy!
Wasn't sure what to expect but this has exceeded my expectations by far. Literally hundreds of top quality channels, movies & shows in every interest/genre available on demand. Perfect picture and sound. For [price] it's a bargain. Will be cutting the cable, just can't beat the quality and offerings. It's like a PVR or recorder taken to the next level. Great buy and easy set-up.
We just bought our second Roku for our other TV and couldn't be happier. We recommend it to everyone we know.
freaking awesome! I'm not missing Rogers at all. hundreds of channels.
Very easy to setup and use.Works well upstairs and a good distance from router.
Highly recommend this over purchase of Chromecast ! Easy to set up and simple to operate. Don't have to mess around with a tablet or smart phone to operate. Chromecast kept buffering and then freezing. Roku hasn't done this once since I got it.
Often freezes and gets very hot to the touch. Unhappy!
Easy to use and response time is decent. You do need to provide a credit card number to set up an account with Roku initially which didn't thrill us. Other than that, we are happy with it.
Does the job and seems to work well. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 was because the power cord is extremely short. I think it should be longer to plug into the wall. It says that you can plug it into your TV usb to power it but it didn't work on my TV.
Works great! Bought it to replace Chromecast; got sick of messing with Android phone app.
Easy to set up. Don't need charge card. Just call customer support and ask for link to alternative setup page which lets you create account without giving card number.
I have bought my first Roku 3500CA last year and have since added two more to my TV's. I have never had ;problems with Roku connecting to a channel even NetFlix. My Roku is now the strongest connect to access Netflix.
Although we are limited to Canadian Content through the channel store if you look around you can find Roku Channels that are not listed or are listed as American and you can connect to them. A quick Google Search got me a lot more content. It is annoying when they update their lists and you click on the channel and it is not available in your area. But there is a lot more Roku product out there. I did not buy the Roku to try and eliminate my TV billing..
An excellent value, almost as good as my other Roku 3.
Does take a little longer to boot, and load Netflix, but not too bad.
Takes up much less space than the other Rokus.
I had trouble connecting to local network at first, but that problem went away after I set my router date/time properly.
This device could not find my network from a basement room where both my phone and laptop were able to connect. I moved the TV 12 feet closer to the router and still no luck. Only when I was in the room directly under the router would it connect.
Then, during set-up, after it connects and updates its software, it requires you to visit their website and input a code that has appeared on the TV. After entering your name, address, phone number, and email address (all required!) they finally tell you that you also have to provide a credit card (or PayPal access) just in case you decide that you want to buy something from Roku at some point in the future.
I bought this to stream Netflix. In the unlikely case that I want to buy content from Roku, I'll provide payment info at that time. I don't want personal contact info and credit card data stored on the servers of any company I deal with - just waiting to be hacked.
No issues. Exactly what I expected. I like it about the same as my Chromecast. I Primarily use it only for youtube and netflix.
I do like the remote on this, so it has a little advantage over Chromecast.
To set up a subscription Roku wants a credit card number just in case you decide to watch payable channels.
Had one for almost 2 months before it began to freeze up or skip on all internet "channels" I noticed it get rather warm sitting idle. The 2nd one on exchange worked for about a week (TUE-SAT) when it just quit. LED appears dim & does nothing, draws no power & doesn't get warm.
Not sure if I will go round 3 or just go Chromecast
It is really nice when they work, great interface (note: if using HDTV antenna you will want to use HDMI cable to relocate the Roku as not to obliterate the incoming TV channel signal)
Not as many "channels" available in Canada but still pretty interesting to watch what is.
Some people say the device is "slow". May be I'm not as picky as them but I don't feel it slow at all.
It works well, super convenient and its hidden behind your TV. Great product.
Mine was a gift - otherwise I'd take it back. I have a cable internet connection, but the stick has so little memory and spends so much time buffering I haven't seen a single show beginning to end- commercial breaks would be better, because they wouldn't happen in the middle of a sentence.
Have had it for almost 2 months and it works great. Primarily use it for netflix and Plex, but has limitless options for other cool stuff. Have not had issues with streaming content or really anything. Set-up was very quick and easy. No complaints here!
Best $ ever spent. So many apps it is overwhelming. Youtube could use an update, but over all this little stick destroys the ps4/xbox one/ chromecast/ nexus player/ and amazon fire. I own all of these devices, and Roku is the King of streaming
Early days but easy to set up and works as advertised so far.
This is my third roku device I have 2 2xd and wanted something small for our TV in our room for this. Had problems at first because remote was WiFi direct and had a ton of interference and wouldn't work until I switched it to the 5ghz freq now smooth as silk and just bought 2 more as gifts for Xmas for my daughter and nephew.
Just got one for our room have the XS2 never had any problems but this one we did. After a couple days the remote won't pair anymore or connect to my wireless network. Read that allot of ppl have this problem with the lot I have so hopefully after I return and her a new stock to try outs works. Right now it's a paper weight!
bought this for the bedroom tv
very easy to hook up and use
very fast to get to Netflix and others utube and more
going to buy another one for a spare bedroom works so good
After great success with my first Roku stick, I purchased a second. The stick does precisely what I want it to do; stream the content from the internet to my TV on the channels I'm interested in.
It should be noted that I bought the second Roku stick for my "smart" TV. I did this because Roku offers more streaming players than my Smart TV branded TV did... and I couldn't get the specific player I wanted for one of my subscriptions.
It obviously works best the closer you are to your wireless router but that's not a criticism of the stick; it's just something to be aware of the larger the area is that you are trying to cover with your wifi.
I bought a Roku Stick from Best Buy. It has OK, not great service like Google Chome. But, I never received an email for the [price] gift card upon activation. When I called Roku live support, they gave me a run around for the gift card. So I returned the Roku Stick and bought a Google Chome for $30 less (and much better service) !!!
For a simple and easy to install bit of hardware this device delivers what it promises. I'm able to stream netflix utube and 100's of other stuff, much of it free and the picture is crystal clear! Kudos to Roku.
Pros - Easy set-up, fast install, nice simple remote, great gui that offers tons of channels, Excellent media streamer for the files from your computer (just need to download the Roku media server channel)
Cons - Cannot use if your hdmi port is at the back of the tv and you have it wall mounted. Start up time is really slow.
Overall a wonderful product and you cannot (seriously I have looked) beat the price for what you get.
bought this stick easy to hook up
very clear and very fast. Would buy another one for another room soon
very good for the money. Hooks up in 2 mins
Works well. Easy to install and use.
Easy..fast..fun....and priced right
Very cool product. Does exactly what I expect of it. Keep in mind that most of the best channels are not available in Canada (HBO, Hulu, Amazon, etc.), but there is still a lot of great content to keep one occupied (Netflix, YouTube, Vevo, Crackle, etc.), with more channels being added daily/weekly. Was very easy to setup. Just plug in, connect to your home’s wifi, create an account, and off you go.
This device is not meant to replace cable or satellite, as you won’t have access to local news, live sports, or the latest TV shows. But it’s a great supplement if you don’t feel like dropping hundreds of dollars on an HD-PVR receiver in every room of your house. I would definitely recommend this thing.
GREAT PRODUCT. AS LONG AS YOUR INTERNET HAS A PASSWORD IT'S EASY TO SET UP AND GET GOING.
This is a great product if you have an oldr TV and want to connect to Internet content.
After owning a Roku 3 for in the living room, I bought the stick for the TV in the bedroom - just disappointed that this remote does NOT have an earphone jack like the Roku 3's for when the wife is already asleep....
works pretty well other than requiring a password for my internet network which didn't have at the first attempt to get this going am satisfied with it
Biggest problem that I have with it is that the 'search' function is not available for Canadian buyers. This sucks and is the biggest drawback of the product. I use it with Plex media server, was a bit finicky in the setup but works well otherwise. Finding good channels is a problem. Drops wifi connection at times (looks like usually when it has not been used for a while) - requireing a reboot of the stick.
for the money, its really slow compared to just adding a few more bucks for the roku 3. roku 3 is amazing!
This device did not work it was flawed I returned it with no problems staff was great and I am looking at alternatives
I bought based on the reviews on roku's website but it's totally the opposite. It says that it has over a 1000 channels but in reality there's only half of it and pretty much all useless channels. You can't even watch a nhl game on their app because it doesn't work in Canada. Therefore I returned that piece of crap.... Waste of money
You got all those extra HDMI ports on your TV why not put them use. No trouble to plug into the TV and install, however Roku requires a credit card for purchases from the Channel Store. Most channels (85%) are free....
Understand you will increase your Internet bandwidth usage so plan accordingly. Great value...better than cable when adding NHL or MLB (and other sports)..also has Netflix and Quello concerts. Rdio for all your individual album choices. Over all a great addition to my entertainment media. I bought a second one for my elderly parents..
I bought it on a Friday and returned it on a Monday. Really slow and lots of messing about to get to any of the good channels. Maybe it might get better in 5 years but for now hang on to your money.
