Roku (3)?


Does anyone have a Roku? Or other "streaming" type of device? Any recomendations?

I got an award at work, and with the award, I can get either a Roku 3 or a Blu Ray [sign in to see URL]'m leaning towards the Roku 3 because the reviews say that it works better than the streaming feature on Blu Ray [sign in to see URL] I don't know anyone off the top of my head that has either...

Looked into getting one but right now I don't stream enough content to make it worth buying.

Re: Roku (3)?


well after both myself and my son analyzed the specs and writeup/reviews, we both reached the same conclusion: Roku 3 made more sense than the streaming Blu Ray...

Ordered it this morning, hope to get to try it out soon and then issue a report...

Sound and picture quality are significantly better if you have some type of auxiliary audio for the former. I have two amplified speakers near the TV and two behind me. With the blu-ray versions on disc the sound is awesome.

Re: Roku (3)?


Early Review time (I'm still learning, so my opinions are not fully developed yet)...

Device itself:
Size of a Hockey Puck;
WiFi works great, have not connected a LAN cable but it does have a LAN Connector;
HDMI connector;
Detachable power cord;
Micro SD card connection as well;

Remote:
Works well;
size: about 5 inches by 1.5 wide;
Headphone jack which gives virtually any corded headphones the ability to wander anywhere in the house with plenty of volume;
