Good: Its got Ok content
Bad: It keeps dropping the signal and YOU CANNOT GET SPARES IN UK
Comment: Don't buy a Roku player in the UK.
They have no proper customer support, so if you lose the remote or it breaks you have to throw the whole thing away.
They can't or won't supply them.
Good: Easy to connect
Bad: Useless. Sluggish, doesn't load channels, iplayer fails - constantly
Comment: If you are considering the Roku think again. I can't remember having bought something so thoroughly useless and unsatisfactory.
I have a super fast broadband connection but roku is, at best, sluggish. The norm is to wait 5 minutes for iplayer to load up and then sit hopefully, tentatively waiting for the iplayer options and content to load. Invariably it doesn't. Buy an alternative.
Bad: tv adds
Comment: No review, I have not bought it yet? also can we get the same tv channels as the US? Would it be better to buy a £99.00 box or a £49.00 one, we want to use this product on christmas day with my wife and children. Thank you, Comeo.
Bad: Its not free
Comment: "iPlayer or Netflix in the Roku's menu until the channel is ready to use takes anywhere between 23 and 45 seconds".
What kind of connection do you have? Netflix took less than 08 sec to start today?
You think it cost too much, not enough content? Have you seen all the free/private channels that are available?
The person that wrote this is clearly an applehead.
