    Easy to connect and works great., April 13, 2012

    This review is from: Roku HD Streaming Player (Electronics)

    Was looking for a wireless streaming player for my Netflix and Amazon Instant Video accounts. This is for the bedroom on my 37″ 720p LCD, so I didn’t need to spend the extra $$ on the Roku 1080p capable players. In reality, you aren’t likely going to get true 1080p video from these streaming players anyway. At any rate, this Roku HD player seemed to fill my need and it definitely does. Easy to link to your existing streaming accounts and Crackle is a free channel with movies and TV episodes, although you do have commercials. Doesn’t come with a HDMI cable, but I had a spare on hand.

    One note on the remote pictured, it’s not the one included. The remote that came with this player has the added, dedicated buttons for Netflix, Pandora and Crackle. Other than those additions it’s the same as what is pictured. Highly recommended for those who just want a streaming player for under $60, since this is all it does.

    Roku HD: Simple. It Just Works!, May 9, 2012

    This review is from: Roku HD Streaming Player (Electronics)


    The Roku HD is a great little wireless-only player. Despite its name, the Roku HD does not support HD video at 1080p. It supports 720p.

    The Roku HD is the replacement for the Roku LT per Roku. Currently the Roku website as of this writing is listing both the Roku LT and the Roku HD, with both feature sets being identical. The Roku LT is sold out on Roku’s website. Update July 11 2012: It is currently in stock again on Roku’s website as of this writing.

    It supports 802.11n WiFi (b/g/n compatible). It has the following video outputs, identical to the Roku LT: 480i over composite video, 480p over HDMI, and 720p over HDMI. Like the Roku LT, it will do the following video modes: 720p HD, 16:9 anamorphic, and 4:3 standard. It will not do 1080p.

    –An HDMI cable is not included, but the composite video cable is.


    The Roku HD is not capable of playing Angry Birds, Pac Man, or similar games. The Roku HD does not include bluetooth capability, which is necessary to play these games. The Roku players that are able to play Angry Birds/Pac Man as of this writing are Roku 2 XD and Roku 2 XS and the previous, older Roku 2 HD. Thus this Roku does not include the Roku Game Remote. Current price for that remote is around $35. The Roku 2 XS (model subject to change via Roku’s website) comes with the Game Remote as of this writing, or you can purchase it in a package with a Micro SD card or separately.


    I love the Roku HD’s simple remote — it is the one with the Netflix, Pandora and Crackle buttons, although it cannot go frame-by-frame in slow motion like a DVR remote. It is still a great design. It is the same remote that I got with my Roku LT and the one supplied with the Roku 2 XD. Subtitles are available for Netflix on the Roku HD, if subtitles are available for that movie/show.


    Streaming is very fast with the wireless HD model.


    * Standard Roku infrared remote control
    * 2 x AAA batteries
    * A/V cable (mini-jack to left/right/composite video RCA)
    * A/C Power adapter
    * Getting Started guide
    * 30-day money back guarantee
    * 90-day hardware warranty


    * HDMI cable — if you choose to hook up your TV with HDMI to view in 720p instead of the included A/V cable
    * Wireless router (N router is best since this Roku is N compatible)
    * High speed internet connection — Roku recommends a 1.5 Mbps download speed for standard definition; live events like baseball need 3 Mbps; and just FYI, the Roku-recommended 5 Mbps HD download speed doesn’t apply to the Roku HD, according to a conversation I had with a Roku representative since the Roku HD player doesn’t do 1080p.
    * Access to the internet to configure your Roku (to link the Roku player to your Roku account)


    * If you have never had a Roku player before, this is a great one to start with.
    * If you have the Roku LT and like it, this one is for you. It is identical except in color.
    * If you have other Roku players and want to expand around the house, this is a good one. Inexpensive, yet has a good feature set.
    * If you have an area in your house where you could use a wireless Roku, and you don’t need to pay extra for ethernet, this is a great choice.
    * If you do not want to play games on a Roku, this would be a good option.


    Set-up is simple and quick, although channel addition can be slightly clunky, in that the order you add the channels is the order in which they will display. As far as Roku content, Hulu Plus is offered, but Hulu is not. However, it is great for access to Netflix and Amazon Instant Video, and there are several great free movie channels to choose from like Crackle, although I would like to see more free movie channels. Content is always expanding on the Roku.


    Roku phone support only covers 90 days per their warranty. After 90 days you have email or chat support only. Tech support has been cheerful and pleasant but spotty. They do not always provide the correct solution to the problem.

    If you want additional phone support, you can get Roku Care Per-Incident or an Extended Warranty which provides as of this writing an additional two years of phone support.


    The Roku HD is a great value in the Roku line and I highly recommend it, as long as you don’t want to play games.

    Another great value, with an identical feature set if you are able to find it at a good price, is the Roku LT Streaming Player. Roku was selling them on their website at a cheaper…

    Roku HD is my new best friend!, April 24, 2012

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Roku HD Streaming Player (Electronics)

    Ordered the Roku HD, have a nice standard definition tv that’s in great shape, but only could get whatever the Verizon gods deemed of value. Wanted to be able to stream videos from my Amazon Prime account, and Hulu, on the tv rather than just my laptop.
    Got the Roku in one day (thank you, Ontrac!). Set up was easy. Went online to complete setup, and was up and running in no time at all. Sound is great, better than the fiber optic service I have. Picture quality is excellent. Best $60 I have ever spent!
