According to an email I got from them, you can also save $30 off of the XD (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=132977) and the XS (http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.aspx?sku=133041), making them $50 and $70, respectively.

Do Rokus have any way of mirroring content from the computer to TV?

@icarususa You can stream downloaded content via Plex Media server from your computer, but there's no way that I know of to do a live mirror of your computer screen.

Why must you tempt me. I mean I have an xbox and a ps3 and a smart tv but these are nice to have...

I bought one of these from Amazon a few weeks ago for $40 when they were on sale and I love it. I was previously using an XBOX 360 with Twonky to stream content from my Mac and this $400 console couldn't play more than a couple of minutes (of SD content even) before it would rebuffer, much less stream HD content. The tiny hockey puck of a device that cost a tenth as much hasn't a single issue streaming even HD content using Plex Media Server (which is free, unlike Twonky) and has the added advantage of playing (through Plex channels) content such as Spotify, and news from CNN and MSNBC and all kinds of other audio and video channels.

The AppleTV still beats everything else I've used in terms of interface (and using your iOS device as a remote rocks), but in terms of content, I highly recommend the Roku, especially at this price.

Looks like a great deal.
The $40 box at Amazon was a purple LT one... I don't care for the color. Maybe I should gift that?

Just a heads up for those that didn't know, there is an android app (and probably iOS I'm sure) from Roku that lets you use your phone/device as a remote along with some other features. Pretty slick.
