How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

PC Mag says:

You won't get full 1080p HD output or Angry Birds, but for a mere $50, the Roku LT will hook you up with Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO GO, and dozens of other Web-streaming services. It's the perfect low-cost way to upgrade your years-old home theater.
