Customer Reviews of Roku 2 XD Streaming Player 1080p
A super addition to TV viewing10/18/2013
I just love this little box. I use it mostly for watching RT America TV, but I'm guessing most people use it for Netflix. It's easy to hook up, just plug the HDMI cable (which may or may not be included, most often NOT) into an HDMI port on the TV, plug the power adapter in, and turn it on. It should find your wifi signal and connect almost immediately. If it doesn't be sure you don't have special settings in your router (as I do, I manually enter MAC addresses into the router). If you have a router password setup, then you'll have to key that in once it finds your network signal. This is my third unit!! The first two are still going strong. Got this one at a great price.

Great for streaming video. At this price, it would be hard to beat this product!
Made my TV a Smart TV
My third ROKU8/13/2013
I love these things. I have a blueray player with streaming built in. I find the Roku devices have worked better for me.
Good media player7/5/2013
This is a good media player. A streamlined version of the original Roku box that I used to have. The remote is a good size and slightly easier to use than the old Roku remote. A slightly cheaper price point than Apple TV with similar features.
HD in bedroom, SWEET2/26/2013
I use Roku for Plex and Netflix and Amazon. For less than $80, this thing is ridiculously awesome.
easy setup and works as advertised
Item was received on time. Setting it up was user friendly and it works just as advertised. The small profile and low power consumption is a plus. I recommend this to others.
The Roku Rocks9/17/2012
We canceled our satellite after getting this little box. All we watch now is Netflix, Crackle and Movies on Amazon, and local channels with our digital antenna. This helped cut our bills quite a bit. And every most of what we watch is commercial free. It is easy to use and easy to add channels. I recommend the Roku to everyone.
Fast shipping and great communication. Good quality product also
Great ! I like it5/21/2012
This gives this device a lot of flexibility. Roku has also given out an API so others are writing applications for the device. There are already some games available, again some free, some pay. If you buy the XS model you get a motion controller, similar to the WII one. It's obviously that it's very early in the devices API development.
Love it !!!!5/16/2012
I love Roku and the whole Roku experience. It allowed me to "cut the cable" and save a good bit of money each month. It gives me plenty of programming, most of it free. It's also adding new channels all the time, about 360 or so at the moment.
very nice product easy to use. I would suggest to friends to get it. I use Nexflix a lot and the picture is very clear. Very happy
Got nice product ontime.4/3/2012
Roku is the best thing to stream your videos or tv shows to your tv. Very easy to use and quality it provides is the best.
Great Device! Needs On/Off Switch3/22/2012
Overall, I'm happy with the device. Still learning the nuances of it and I'm not ready to drop cable yet. Our boys enjoy listening to the Pandora. But it is cool little device just wish it has a on/off switch so that our HDMI switch would work right.
