I JUST bought the Roku 2 XS the day this came out!
Also, i wish gdgt would give a heads up for upcoming products!
I bought an Roku 2 XS over a year ago and currently have it on sale for about $80. If I get my money I will pay the extra $20 to upgrade to the newest Roku. Otherwise, I'll be just fine with my current set up. I would recommend these cost comparisons by listing products you own on amazon.com at prices(taking into account shipping and commission fees) that you would be satisfied and able to buy newer gadgets with the extra cash.
For example. I sold my PSP-3000 for about $160 in order to buy a PS Vita in early 2012.
