Roku Review

A lot of movie watching happens in my house. I'm a big movie fan, so I'm constantly watching the latest flick. When you buy a lot of DVD's, you can only have so many before you start to run out of room in your TV or DVD shelf to store them. Wouldn't it be nice to watch whatever you wanted, any time of day or night, even if you don't own the movie? That's where the Roku steps in!

The Roku is a digital media player which supports signals up to 1080p. It features a built-in wireless networking that allows you to stream media to your TV, so you can enjoy your favorite TV shows, movies and more in stunning high-definition. The Roku library allows you access to more than 100,000 movies and TV shows from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video and more.

The Roku is a revolutionary device which will change your movie viewing forever!

I was sent a Roku - 2 XD Wireless Digital Media Player.

I had Netflix years ago, but keeping up with sending in the disks and waiting to receive your next one was a pain. I was excited at the thought of watching unlimited movies and tv shows for one low price a month! Of course the fact that I didn't have to deal with the discs was a nice added bonus. I re-signed up with Netflix and couldn't wait to get the Roku party started!

The device was very easy to install and the instructions were clearly explained too. Within about 10 minutes everything was hooked up and ready to go. I had hundreds of TV shows and movies at my fingertips! You can search by movie genre for specifically what you're interested in. The quality is excellent and it's like watching a movie in the theater or from a true DVD. Sometimes the connection will be a bit slower than normal, but that's to be expected. I haven't had any issues with the connection not working at all. You can browse the selections with the included remote. I love seeing old TV shows from years and years ago, it's fun to watch them again. I know that this little black box is going to revamp my movie nights completely! I'm excited to watch many movies that I've never seen before.

The Roku would be the perfect gift for any movie or TV buff. They will absolutely love it if you surprise them with it.
