I ordered one from the last sale (12/5) and the expected delivery is 12/18...this will give an idea of shipping times. Slow, but could be worse.

Beat me by 3 minutes! +1 for you.

just ordered mines, I hope it comes before the Dec 22. They didn't give me the option of rush delivery so expect it to be standard. 7-10 days.

@morriea: Where do I find the FLASH section to purchase the XS?

vote-for2vote-against

@mnmdavis: There is a tab labeled "flash" at the top of the 1SaleADay website.

@mnmdavis: Follow the link for this deal. Click far right/top tab marked FLASH. Scroll down. You must register with 1saleaday to view the section.

They are good people, though the shipping takes a bit of time.

Thanks for the info. With the free shipping, the XS is only $15 more than the XD. I decided it was worth it to have an ethernet port.

This s the step down from the one I bought last week righ ?

Can't see the Roku 2 XS details because I can't remember my logon, but I wanted to point out that the Roku 2 XD version on the main site is not new, it's factory REFURBISHED. Just a heads up for those that don't gravitate to reading the specs area.

I have the unpopular opinion that Rokus are absolute (profanity)...deal with it

vote-for2vote-against

All the deals on Rokus are refurbs. I've purchased two. One was fine, one had a problem. Roku fixed the problem. The refurb warranty is as good as the new and Roku stands behind refurbs the same as new, so don't let refurb scare you away.

If you want a deal on new, go to playon.tv and get a new roku LT plus playon for life for $70. I did that too. Rokus are lots of fun, but Playon or Plex add a lot of programming.

DO NOT expect delivery in the near future!!! 1saleaday has some decent deals but they are the absolute slowest to ship of any website...ive ordered 10 or so times and never have received in less than 1 month.

@benmason: I hope you didnt order it for a gift--super slow that site

They are slow, but I ordered the XS from them last week and have received a tracking number for my shipment. It is being shipped (albeit at a snails pace), I believe, directly from Roku.

I have ordered a lot of things from 1saleaday, it always takes forever to receive, I have gotten all but one item that they over sold on. It took forever for a refund but eventually I got it after 3 or 4 emails to them. They are a legit company and products have always been as advertised.

@dpurlee: You couldn't be any more correct. I've ordered several items from there and expect slow shipping but our last order was a killer. Ordered something on Oct 26 and we received it about a week ago.

@djbowman: if you bought the XS then yes.

Can this stream downloaded movies or tv shows from a mac laptop? I could use a pc desktop also. Just want to know if it will stream from a folder on those devices. I have a PS3, and that does what some of this does. Wondering if it is worth it.

@Jared

It can be done with certain video formats such as .mkv and I can't remember what else. I use a program called Plex media server to do it and it works wonderfully. No complaints about my Roku.

@wizwor: Do you like playon? I'm on the fence about getting it.

vote-for1vote-against

Thank you - just picked up my second one at this price!

@mettpetak - there is a free trial for playon so you can test it. It did not work for crap on mine. While slightly different Plex is a nice free addon. Will let you stream almost anything your computer that is serving the data can encode as well as sharing your iTunes library with the plex app on roku.
Also free (iOS app costs a little)

How do the Roku's compare to the WD Live streaming players?
