I guess it depends on just what you are looking for your purchase to do in your system. I have had three Roku units (one XR that is 1080 capable hooked to an ISF calibrated 65" Panasonic plasma in my HT) for a little more than a year and have never had a single issue with any of them. They are all hard wired, PQ on the 37" LCD and the 34"CRT is very good and what I love most about the little buggers (they are small which is nice) is that they have such a variety of private channels (not to mention the normal collection such as Netflix, Pandora, Amazon VOD, HULU+ etc.) and other offerings that it seems that every day I turn it on a new channel is up and running. They are slowly adding more sports (they have MLB, NHL, UFC, Australian league football along with a cricket channel) so hopefully they will land some bigger fish. I think for the price and again, depending on what you need, it's a great bargain.
