How do these compare to streaming via a PS3?

@landbeaver: I like the interface on the PS3 a lot better, easier to search for me and browse to find shows. As far as performance goes, both are excellent.

I love my Roku. easy to configure, easy to use. more than just NetFlix. It supports Amazon prime videos too.

iOS (and probably Android) users: be sure to get the Roku app, which doubles for the remote when you lose it, and actually improves the interface with faster channel-changing and phone-keyboard searching.

I've been a Roku user for years. My sister, who doesn't have cable, will absolutely love this. Thanks for posting.

Thanks. This makes my 4th Roku - now I have one for every TV. I use them as clients for my Plex server and they work very well.

in for at least one. How do you go about the $5 video?

@philosopherott: They send you an email (usually a while after you place your order) and the credit is applied to your amazon account. Not sure how this works if you bought it as a gift (as I did) though

The one thing that I dislike about the netflix client on the Roku is that it doesn't seem to support closed captioning even when the stream does. I can watch the same movie on my PC and the captioning will be available.

Roku is amazing when paired with Plex media server. It streams and sorts all my downloaded media very painlessly.

$39.99 + free shipping (5-8 day) and tax (3.10) comes to a grand total of .....$43.09.....

I saw that too, but still see it listed for this price plus I think 8.99 for shipping on top of the price, so,,,, still......just sayin.....

If you get a Roku make yourself a favor and buy the extended warranty, they start at $5.66. The brand new Roku units have 30-day money back guarantee and a 90-day hardware warranty. Roku's 2 year warranty is $9.99. I found out about it on the hard way. I got a brand new defective unit and I had to send it back before the 90-day hardware warranty at my own expense..
