I love my Roku XD, and have had good experiences with meritline.

I have a plain ol' Roku I bought from woot about half a year back. Is the Roku 2 any different, really?

@dupedyetagain: With a quick look the only difference I see in the LT (base model) and XD is that the XD plays 1080p video.

Great for Netflix. Terrible for streaming any local content.

@dupedyetagain: You can compare both current and older Roku models on this page:

The Roku 2 models have a slot for a MicroSD card for expanded storage for more active channels and games (in some models).

Just a word of caution, DirecTV doesn't allow HBOgo over Roku for some reason, I didn't know this until I bought one

@incognit0:

Agreed. Only recognizes a few types of media.

Best option if you still want to do that is set up a Plex server. Roku has a Plex client....however you now need to run another system to feed the Roku....

How long is this deal running?

@capcityphoenix: The LT version is the only one that supports rca while all other versions are hdmi only.

Does this model support VUDU? I haven't figured it out yet and my current model doesn't, I could get this newer one and give my sister my current one...

@cassiescorner: Yes, it is a Roku 2 model, and all of the 2's can do Vudu,
