Detailed review
I gave up my cable TV a few weeks ago. Decided to get my media via my Xbox 360, Roku HD and via the internet on my computer. I have to say that the Roku HD gets the most play since. Setup just took mere minutes. No hassle, no fuss. When choosing channels in the channel store I found the selection lacking a bit, but I have hopes in time there will be more to choose from. Picture quality is great using the HD component cables, and optical for sound. Pandora is a great channel feature. With the built in wifi, connecting to my network was a breeze. I do wish there was an power button to turn the device completely off, instead after a certain amount of time (adjustable), the device will go into a low power "sleep" mode. In conclusion, the Roku HD device is everything it claims to be and does it extremely well. I can watch my Netflix through my Xbox 360 but now find I watch it through the Roku instead. I hope they add more channels with a wider range of content. But even as it is now, I LOVE IT!
