Roku 2 XD


$79.99 Released July, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Have a good selection of applications from Netflix and amazon video to various internet news sources. Good wireless range with the built-in adapter. Simple to setup, menus are intuitive, application setups are also simple (Netflix, amazon).

The Cons:Buyers looking for apps on TV should look towards the Logitech Revue, with the price drop and Google Android OS, it is a far more capable device. Buggy software, too many crashes, product seemed rushed (might well be fixed via future upgrades). No ethernet port, must use wifi.
