Absolutely Thrilled

I ordered the Roku 1 during our Christmas holiday and had it mailed to our home. I couldn't believe how fast Best Buy was with getting it out to us. We were able to set it up on our own which was wonderful. We are not that up on these new electronics and were a little worried concerned that we would have to have help with it but it was so easy. Everything was explained and we were taken through each step that we found we were hooked up and ready to go. We love it. We go on it and pick and choose which shows we want to watch and simply enjoy it. The little extra surprise was when we found we could get it on our laptops. My husband is really enjoying being able to turn it on whenever he wants and watch what he wants for a change. Thank you Best Buy we will order from you in the future.

Cool product. Well priced.

Already having the Roku 3, I decided to get a second unit for another TV in the house. It's just as fast as the 3, just missing some bells and whistles. Overall function is the same. Some small differences are, Roku 3 has a headphone jack on the remote, the remote operates over wifi whereas the 1 over RF. Screen mirroring available on the 3 but currently not on the 1. If that stuff doesn't matter so much, the 1 is a great little device.

Bad Device

Not a very well thought out device. The Roku 1 has to stay plugged in and is on all the time, no off switch. Device gets warm and stays warm unless unplugged. Have to have Roku account to use device. Have to have current credit card to use device. Just takes a lot to set this up.

exactly right for the room

This little gem enabled us to family view online programming, such as Netflix on our TV's. Easily switchable to any set in the house or economical to buy for each set.

Roku for the first time

Love how easy it was to install. I find the remote is a tedious way to use it, much easier to navigate once my cell phone linked with it.

Choose wisely

Plug and play, just not all the time. Has a bad time connecting to the Internet via wifi, spent better part of the day trying to reconnect. Better off buying the ruko 3' it at least has a LAN line.

Over all not too bad. Wish there was more Canadian content.

Downgrade from a Boxee

My one Boxee Box system was being faulty so I decided to go with a Roku so I was able to watch Netflix on a TV that had no other way to view it and a Roku being the cheapest way of doing so. Netflix on Roku looks awful, very clunky and feels very much out of date, I was also hoping to be able to watch locally shared videos through the Roku, there are some apps you can get for it to do that but none worked for me. Being very unsatisfied I decided to return the system for a full refund. I'd love to suggest people go with a Boxee Box instead but unfortunately they are no longer being made nor are they supported as the company got bought out by Samsung. This review was specifically for the Roku 1, and I hear that Roku 3 is apparently much better.

This Box is amazing. I received the Roku 3 for Christmas, then went in a bought the lower end model a few days later for the bedroom. It's fast and easy to use. Team it up with the Play On server and Plex and you can say goodbye to cable like we have! Easy set-up.
