    Wifi not so great

    The wifi receiver for this product wasn't great, and only being able to receive the 2.4Ghz frequency didn't help as my 5Ghz network is waaaay stronger a signal.

    Works very well for streaming has a very intuitive os that is easy to navigate and easy for those not so tech savvy. WiFi antennas could use a little work as they aren't as strong as other streaming services and this can cause some buffering at times.

    My media room is upstairs and my router is downstairs. I'm sure it's a good product but the signal was never strong enough to watch anything. Very blurry.

    Another Good Roku Option

    Bought this a few days ago and it has worked flawlessly. My only complaint is that it does not support 5ghz wifi so if you have an AC router and like to keep your streaming devices on the 5ghz band this is not for you. Downgraded a star for this otherwise it meets all the other check boxes for a Roku device.

    The Roku Premiere barely gets a passing grade from me. The lack of 5 GHz wireless severely hurts the score here. While 2.4 GHz is usable in most circumstances, it can be a problem in places like an apartment complex. @@@@@@@@ Where I live...) Due to the slower connection, there can be artifacts while streaming for minutes at a time sometimes. Other than that, this is your standard affair Roku device.

    This is the 5th Roku unit that I have bought. The response is much better than it's predecessors. Set up is easy and the WiFi is easy to connect to. The remote is back to a line of sight system rather than WiFi so you will need to place this small unit where you can point the remote at it. It works with 4K and HDR. It does not connect to WiFi at 5ghz, just 2.4ghz. Also, the supplied HDMI cable is very short (about 3 ft).

    A Good Budget Roku

    If you're looking for streaming on a budget, this is the Roku for you. The Roku Premiere 4K is fast and fluid although not as fast as my Roku Streaming Stick+. With an existing Roku account, setting this up for the first time is easy! It does 4K and works with WiFi 802.11n. It is very similar to my Streaming Stick+ but lacks some of its cool features like WiFi 802.11ac and voice control. So.......... If you're looking for a quick Roku fix and 4k compatibility, get the Roku Premiere 4K. But for an extra $20, you get a few more perks with the Streaming Stick+. Both have that Roku quality and are recommended.
