                To take maximum advantage of this device you will need a broadband internet connection with a stable signal of at least 5.0MB-plus, otherwise there is no reason to buy this box(the lesser versions will do as well for lower resolutions, and at less cost). The Netflix & VuDu image quality at 1080p is extraordinary, equal to or better than many BluRay discs, and equal to or better than VuDu's HDX service. And I'm talking about viewing the Netflix and VuDu HDX on a 65-inch plasma screen where i...

                  This replaced a Boxee Box that I had for several years as it was advertised as supporting the closed captioning of Amazon movies which may or may not be true.

                    Long and short- spring the extra $20 to get the Roku 3.

And while you're poking around the Roku- take a look at Plex- a fantastic app for streaming content from your computers to your Roku. Beyond that, in general I believe the Roku platform represents the best streaming platform you can get. Capable of pla...

                      First off I live in Canada - more on that below.  But to the point - other than cable/satellite offerings, AppleTV is the only other major player that you can rent movies from ... without trying to pretend you are in the US.  Secondly, this review does not deal with "picture quality".

                       

                      For a while I have had Netflix and felt to capitalize I need to roll it out to more rooms in the house.  I wanted to get an Apple TV but needed HDMI with the latest generation - so ...
