    Good product

    I own and older version of the Roku but after reading the Xfinity website I found I could replace my Xfinity box with a newer version of the Roku stick. The Roku does take the place of the secondary box, it is not as easy with the Roku remote since the Roku remote has no numbers and the setup for Xfinity is slightly different but it serves its purpose and I don't pay extra monthly fees for the small cable box from Xfinity. I do on the other hand receive all the Roku channels so it is a win for me. As I think about it... I did buy the cheapest version of a Roku for $29 and unlike my first one the remote is line of sight which means that the remote has to be pointed right at the Roku device as opposed to my old one which hid behind the television connected to the HDMI port. So the Box they give you is now taped to the bottom of my television so I can point my remote at it. Maybe this cuts down on cost for the least expensive version but it's not a big deal for me.

    My second one

    |
    Posted .

    Love the ROKU devices. I own a few and this one is my second favorite, The first is my TCL ROKU TV. They are easy to set-up and easy to use. This one can get a little to warm so I have mine set-up on a metal heat sink. The memory seems to be limited to about 300 channels depending on how much data the channel needs to function, but other then that I love this one. I also can control it and my TV with a ROKU App on my Cell Phone. This one is much better then the HDMI Stick ROKU because if the remote control goes bad on the HDMI Stick it will no longer function, That is why I bought this second one ( My HDMI Stick won't work any more ).

    I wanted something for the TV in my bedroom and this is just what I needed. I can access Sling, Netflix, Hulu, etc. and was able to attach it to the top of my mounted TV with the included Velcro strips so that I don’t have cords showing. Very pleased!

    Nice Addition to the Roku lineup

    |
    Posted .

    I have never owned a Roku streaming box before now, but I have had plenty of experience with the Roku 2 and 3 prior to purchase. I was buying this for use on my bedroom TV, which I don't watch all that often. I limited my budget based on this use case which brought me to 2 options. The Express or the Stick (it was on sale at the time, so same price). My TV is older and doesn't doesn't have USB ports to power the Stick, and its HDMI ports were on the side. This would make the Stick protrude well beyond the edge of the TV, and it would require wall power just like the Express. For these reasons I ruled out the Stick and went with the Express. The Express is a very small device - no bigger than a roll of quarters. It comes with double sided tape so you can mount it anywhere - I stuck mine to the bottom edge of the TV. I hooked it up using the provided HDMI cable and wall charger. Setup was pretty easy - you need to have a computer nearby to login and activate the Express before you can use it. I was able to add my HULU, HBOnow, and Sling accounts from the web browser on my computer. I could also pick a few of the free streaming channels I like through the browser, and it would automatically add it to the Express. However, I had to add my Nettflix account directly on the device - not an option through the browser. This was a more time consuming way to add accounts, and I'm not sure why Netflix was singled out. The interface on the device is pretty straightforward. Newcomers will not be overwhelmed, and its pretty intuitive. I was used to it coming from the 2 and 3, so there was no learning curve. The remote is just OK. It does what I need it to, so I guess that is good enough. Picture quality is solid. I'm watching at 1080P without it buffering/lagging/pixelating. I was worried about my router having enough signal in my bedroom to keep up, but it hasn't been an issue. For an MSRP of $30, this is a nice little streamer.

    Roku Express Works for Me

    |
    Posted .

    Did my research and opted for Roku on both my Insignia TVs I bought last year from Best Buy. Cable Vision is dying and I needed to make the change. However there were many shows that were a "must have" to make me happy. Roku combined with Hulu "live" gives me all ever wanted. Roku was a one time purchase fee and the Hulu is monthly at $39.99, no contract and I can jump off or on at any time. My Internet speed of 6mb is sufficient to work these systems thru my Uverse WiFi. I am a fan and could not be happier. Cable TV is no longer needed to get great reception and programming. I am excited for my future television viewing with my Insignia TVs, my Roku devices and my Hulu service. I should have changed over long ago. But not knowing enough to make a decision to do that was the only thing holding me back. I asked all around about Roku and got nothing but "thumbs up" responses. Check for yourself, ask around, investigate and see for yourself. My second Roku box was purchased online from Roku and is the Ultra version. It has an on/off button on remote, volume controls and other perks that I really like. So any investment into a Roku is a good one.

    Pretty Good Overall. Just One Flaw.

    Overall, I like the Roku Streaming Media Player, and I prefer it to the Amazon Fire Stick which I have also tried. The Roku delivers better quality, I do not see the annoying "stuttering effect" that I frequently experienced with the Amazon Fire stick. I also prefer Roku's user interface as it is simple and straightforward. I would give this product the full five stars if not for the occasional problems I have with the Roku remote control. Sometimes the remote looses its connection with the Roku streaming stick, and I tried the reset button inside the remote's battery compartment but that usually fails to correct this issue. I found through a process of trail and error that the best thing to do in this case is to just reset the Roku stick by unplugging its A/C adapter and then plugging it back in. Then the remote works again. I would not consider this issue a deal breaker though, as it only occurs occasionally, and when it does occur it is easy to fix.

    Roku Channel has hundreds of free movies

    Posted .

    I have used Roku for years,including several different models.The best new thing of note is Roku has recently released The Roku Channel,which has hundreds of free movies.It is ad supported.Roku has just about every app you can imagine.The Express is the least expensive model,but it works fine.Here are some points to consider when deciding on which model of Roku to buy: 1)If you need to connect by WiFi in a room far away from your WiFi router,I would recommend the Roku Streaming Stick PLUS or Roku Ultra. 2)If you have a 4K TV,I would recommend the Roku Ultra or Roku Streaming Stick PLUS. 3)To search for content using your voice,go with either the Streaming Stick,Streaming Stick PLUS or Ultra. 4)If you want a wired ethernet connection,go with the Roku Ultra. 5)If you want to connect to an old TV with RCA/Composite audio/video jacks,you will need the Express PLUS 6)The Express models have a remote where it has to be pointed at the device,unlike the other Roku models. 7)If you are only going to buy one Roku device,I would recommend the Roku Ultra.The Ultra has many unique features that the other Roku models don't such as: -Gaming buttons to play video games -Remote finder to find a lost remote control -Ethernet port for a wired connection -Micro SD card slot -USB Port -Night listening mode (this lowers the volume of loud,explosive sounds and raises the volume of soft sounds like whispers.Very useful!) -Headphone jack on the remote for listening without disturbing others

    EXCELLENT INEXPENSIVE STREAMING PLAYER!

    |
    Posted .

    I decided to buy this Roku player for turning my TV into a smart TV. Mainly I wanted to try and receive cable tv channels from internet-cable services.(OTT). Now a days, most of all TV channels are digital and require a cable box to receive cable channels. In order to avoid having a cable box with extra equipment fees, the trick is, as long as you have a good internet connection, a compatible streaming player or TV, a digital TV antenna, and sign up for any OTT TV service, you can get Cable TV for a low cost without a cable box! It's technically the new standard for basic cable now and this Roku player does great for this purpose! I have a cable-outlet hooked straight to my TV from a TV Antenna for free local channels and have this Roku for my cable channels! This Roku player gave me a 30 day free trial for Cable TV with Sling and I instantly got hooked! It's definitely worth paying for! Only $25 a month! Just know that the free trial is only for NEW SLING TV customers. I also bought this for watching youtube and other videos without having to connect a laptop to my TV. Since, I didn't care for the remote that came with this player, especially without TV volume and mute controls, I've been using my universal TV remote with it since day one instead.(Mostly any streaming player compatible universal TV remote will work.) So I have one remote for the TV and Roku controls and have all the important functions for both. Also since the player does overheat, I bought a little desk fan to keep the Roku cool and haven't had any overheating issues since then. I also limit up to no more than 8 apps on my homepage to keep it running smoothly, it's enough for me. So if you've got a good internet connection and willing to do these extra steps, it's a great streaming player for the low price! Just keep in mind that you have to provide credit or debit card info for a Roku account in order to activate any Roku device including Roku TV's. Also if someone charges you $69 for activation, it's most likely a scam because it's not necessary. (I skipped this and still works fine.) Over all, great device for the price!

    Awesome!!

    Posted .

    I am very impressed with this Roku streaming stick. I have used Google’s chromecast streaming device and an Apple TV a few times, but they don’t even compare to this Roku stick. It comes installed with popular streaming apps like Hulu, Netflix and Sling, but you can also download your own as well! What’s Included The box contains a small Roku box, remote, HDMI cable, power cable, and double sided tape.The size of the Roku box is about three inches long. The double sided tape lets you stick it to top or bottom of your TV. The tape loses its stickiness after awhile, but that isn’t too big of a deal. To avoid it falling from your TV, I would recommend placing it on top of your TV. Once I placed it where I wanted it, it is barely noticeable. Positives First off, my favorite thing about this product is how affordable it is. I bought it for a one time cost of $24.99 so I thought there had to be a contract or a monthly fee with it, but the only fee is your steaming service that you decide to use. For example, I personally use YoutubeTV as my streaming service and it is a monthly fee of $29.99. It works very smoothly and I have never have any problems with it lagging or loading. The next thing I really enjoy about this product is how easy it is to use. It comes with its own separate remote which is very sleek. It also has an excellent smartphone app you can download which acts as a remote on your smartphone. I often use the private listening option that comes with the app. I can connect my headphones to my phone and the sound will only come through my headphones. This is especially helpful for me since I have three roommates! Negative The only downside I could see with this product is the lack of a Ethernet port. I am fortunate enough to have very good WiFi that is included with my apartment. If you have a standard option of WiFi, you could experience some buffering just because are restricted to using WiFi. Overall, there may be pricer devices out there that have more options and features. But, if you are looking for a device that is sleek, easy to use, and inexpensive, don’t pass up on this device! If I could rate this more than 5 stars, I most definitely would!!!
