Roku XDS


$100.00 Released September, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Full 1080p support. Wired ethernet and dual band 802.11N wireless connectivity. USB port for local media.

The Cons:No streaming local network content. Local playback is severely limited by format support. Not worth the premium over the lower priced, 720p Roku HD / XD.

The Roku XD is one of three wireless, high-definition media streamers (HD, XD, XDS) released in Fall 2010. Functioning as the top unit in the Roku series, the XDS offers full 1080p high-definition video processing in addition to Dual-Band Wireless N connectivity and unlimited streaming from one of 75 Roku channels that include Netflix and Pandora, to name a few.

shadowtech: #roku_xds I don't understand how this product is compatible with 3D Blu-ray discs as stated in the description. Does the author mean to say 3D Blu-ray movie rips will work? Sep 24, 10
