Customer Reviews of Roku 2 XS Wireless 1080p HD Media Player
No more cable for me1/4/2015
I have a Roku 2 XS, and I love it. With this and an antenna, I can watch everything I want without paying monthly for cable. Plus, most channels on the Roku have no commercials! I love the freedom this little device gives me. It's even all in HD. Good riddance, Time Warner.
Very nice product!
Easier than Apple TV2/10/2014
This product is easier to use and offers more than the apple TV. Set it up and worked right away after registering, plus the remote is bigger and fits my hand better, more convenient to use.
So small, well made, and absolutely simple to hook up. Be sure you have a HDMI cable, none comes with it. Free iPhone app to use your phone as an additional remote control for the Roku. Only disappointment is that Hulu costs like $7.99 per month...used to be free. Still a ton of free content to view. I like WSJ Live from the Wall Street Journal. Lots of commercial-free options.
Setting up the Roku box1/14/2014
The Roku is fairly easy to set up and is a lot of fun....still exploring the possibilities.
"Almost Ready to Cut the Cord"8/13/2013
After reading many reviews, I purchased the Roku 2XS. Using wi-fi, I expected it to be a little slow but to my surprise, the speed is identical to cable. Everything responds almost instantaneously. The only thing that will make it a must have item is a browser. But even with a browser or youtube, it's still great!
Good customer service
Little wonder box8/1/2013
This is a wonderful device, and no lagging or whatsoever. Making watching online streaming a joy.
Shipping was less than 2 days and the packing was done well
Item shipped on time and worked as expected. I already had one of these units and it works great! It should have included batteries for the remote, but they were missing.
Roku 2 is a very powerful internet media stream player. The best thing about this player is that it supports game download, as well as the support of Chinese TV channels.
As advertised. There a ton of free content, and some very reasonable costs....
Roku works well6/12/2013
The Roku works well. It took a while to set up.
Simple to set up and use
It is possible to nit pick, notwithstanding this is the only game in town as a substitute or supplement to cable TV.
Maybe the best all-in-one streamer solution.4/17/2013
Adding Plex media server makes this the best all-in-one streaming solution out there. The only downside is the lack of YouTube. Hopefully that is fixed down the road. The addition of plex allows you to stream a ton of different video types to the Roku. This is still the only box that has the three most important channels for me: Amazon VOD, Netflix, and HBO GO. Plex truly makes it more versatile than ever. Angry Birds is a nice addition and is actually more fun on a large screen.
At 1st we couldn't get it to respond, but we unplugged power to the device then plugged it in again & we've had no problem since...this is why reading instructions is important! ;) We set up the account in mins & once channels downloaded we went right into adding the channels we wanted. Most channels are free, but we did discover that some channels only offer sneak peeks of shows & behind the scene videos, but access to free movies, our netflix account movies & all the games is great to have!
Excellent product, 1st time purchase from this ven10/29/2012
No need to contact vendor, product was promptly delivered, installed & worked as expected, would not hesitate to buy again from this vendor.
Better performance than most streamers found on BD players.
Not worth the money ...6/23/2012
I bought this item for seeing subtitles in Netlfix and also for its good review in many sites. It also has a small size. The unit is defaulted to have stereo output and NOT from HDMI digital audio and the first thing I had to tackle is why I had no audio. It should default to HDMI in these days as most buyers are interested in HDTV. Automatic detection is easy to implement and I wonder why it does not have that Though it has so many channel, but almost all are subscription tied and charged. There is practically no free sites, and even YouTube is not there. For Hulu, only Hulu plus (subscription needed) can be installed. It allows to play media files on the USB port (drive connected), but the file format is very limited in both audio and video. And the worst is it does not do playlist, no random playing too! For the game section, it has ONE free game with the purchase, but the remote control for the game is really not too that convenient and easy. Currently as blue ray players have dropped greatly in price and many 2012 models have subtitles too, same money could almost buy one! The conclusion is that, it can do more than the old Roku models, but the feature is too basic to be considered valuable.
We bought the Roku to be able to pipe in Netflix to one of our televisions. Installation was fairly easy, but I must say that I'm extremely annoyed at having to hand over a credit card number. Now don't get me wrong, I'm sure that Roku folks are righteous folks BUT I don't want them to have our credit card number because I've absolutely no idea of how good their security system is, AND I don't want to buy anything from them, or have my children buy anything from them.
Roku is really nice device and really good one . streaming is good. it have lots of free movie. also lots of news channel . also have facility to acees facebook . netflix have lots of free movie i enjoy this. great thing is that it work on wifi technology .it is really awesome instrument . great one
ROKU is a nice device and streaming all shows in HD is nice. However, getting multiple channels will get a little expensive.
Set up was easy - sort of. Roku has done a great job of designing a very simple setup wizard and also provides excellent documentation on how to connect and configure the box. Where I had some trouble during setup was with the wireless network card in the unit. It doesn't always work, making the setup process more difficult than it should be.
An aweomse product5/21/2012
The absolutely awesome content available from all the different sites boggles the mind! Besides the free sites, there are many pay sites that allow you to watch the kind of content you like--not having to watch things you don't like until your favorites come on!
another great product5/18/2012
Another great Roku, having subtitles is much better and don't have to turn them on each time starting netflix like when using TV netflix channel. Wireless is working only on 2.4GHz, but wired connected to Media Bridge will work just fine.
Attn all Amazon Prime members5/14/2012
As an Amazon Prime member I am able to stream all their media content through my Roku device. It was a breeze to set up and the interface is great. I may try out Hulu Plus next!
I'm very happy so far with the Roku box. I'm just starting to tap into the vast possibilities. Trying to free myself from cable and satelite
