Fast, enormous channels selection, major user interface upgrade (hands-on plus FAQ) MY EXPERIENCEFor anyone new to the Roku world, I would recommend the Roku 3 over any other previous models mainly on it being so much faster to operate. If ‘cost’ is an issue and 720p only is not a bother then the LT should be a great pick for half the price.True for all Roku models: there’s an enormous amount of channels to choose from, including most popular ones. And if there’s something that you can’t find in the official store you can always check the private channel listings (I included the URL of my favorite site) which is where I found things such as streaming CNN, CNN International and BBC World.The streaming is exceptionally smooth. Quite impressive considering that I set this Roku on the second floor, some 60-70 ft. and two floors away from our Wi-Fi router located in the basement.This model especially, due to the more powerful processor is easy to operate through Roku’s very basic remote control.Roku 3 and all…

Are you searching for a way to bring your TV into the 21st century? Here it is.. Let me first say that I have been a Roku user for a number of years now, and own a Roku 1 XD, XDS, and a Roku 2 XS. I have also owned and used in the past the Logitech Review using GoogleTV, the last two non-Google TV Sony boxes, and two generations of the WD TV Live streamers. After owning and using all those, the Roku is the only one that has a place in my livingroom, and here’s why…Without boring everyone on the specs of the R’s, let me start by telling about my experience setting it up.Once unpacked one simply plugs the power adapter into the wall and an HDMI cable into the TV and the Roku, that’s it. The unit begins booting up then asks you to select whether you want to use a wireless or wired network connection. I selected wireless and it then shows a list of the networks it detected. Once you choose your network you input the password for your network and in a few seconds it connects right away.Finally it displays an activation code which…

Unit is good, remote is too finicky OK, I am a certified Roku fan, prefer it to Apple, and mind you, between 2010 and now, I’ve bought 8 (eight) Rokus from amazon, and 1 from Roku directly, making it a total of 9. Yes, 4 of them were as gifts for friends. I’ve got the whole series, Roku HD, Roku XS, XDS, etc., and a unit each in three rooms. I am disclosing this just to make my point, my disappointment.Until now, never had any problem with the others, they all worked well in the three different dwellings in different locations I lived in, easily connected to my home network.I bought this latest unit because of the built-in ear-plug port, Which did not disappoint me, it works just fine. Super idea.My problem is the remote’s finicky connectivity. The unit, as had the other units, worked well right out of the box, connected like a breeze, and no problems for the first two weeks. And then the remote lost touch with the base. OK, I disconnected HDMI and power cables for a few minutes, re-connected, still…
