It does have a faster processor, if that's been a problem for you. The headphone/ear-bud jack is a nice feature if you have a need for that. If you don't currently have a Roku, go ahead and buy the newest and fastest. If you already have a Roku 2 XS, I'd wait for a good sale. Or until you can't stand any more waiting.

I have a ROKU 2 XS and I don't see a compelling reason to upgrade. The unit is fast enough for me, I don't really need the headphone jack, and the older ROKU's will be getting the new GUI around May I think they said.

It would be nice if they sold the headphone jack remote separately, for those of us who don't want to buy a whole new unit.

Yes! Do it for the remote alone. It rocks!

I don't know since the remote runs off WIFI if it will work with older models then again do you really want a WIFI remote. WIFI is not the healthiest type of radiation to hold in your hand, You should always be careful with any type of radiation source that is close to your body.

The 3 Has a Dual Band N WIFI. The 5 GHZ band is amazing for throughput. I have Both.
