Now that the 4K HDR ROKU models have started to ship I thought I would start a thread for owners of the top two models that include HDR support. The Premiere + being the lower tier model and the Ultra adding a few more options for $30 more. The Ultra adds: Remote Finder, Gaming Buttons, a USB port, and Optical Digital out to the mix.
I really would like to see these models do well without the issues that cropped up with the introduction of the ROKU 4 last year. I personally had a ROKU 4 for about a week but could not deal with the "red" push issue. Others I believe had heat issues and loud fan noise. Hopefully ROKU listened to the feedback from owners and did a much better job this time around.
So as new "OWNERS" of these two models over the next few days I would like folks to evaluate/review and post their likes as well as dislikes of these two new models. Please include which model you purchased in your posts. If having problems, please include your setup and what make/model TV you own.
Thank You and I look forward to your thoughts as well as my own.

I called Roku customer service and asked if the Roku Ultra would ship today. They were no help and could not answer the question.
So I guess we'll have to just wait and see.

Since there is no confirmation email and my credit card was not charged, I'm guessing no, it will not ship today☹

Ordered my Ultra from Amazon last week and still shows no shipping info, also with Hurricane Matt passing through Central Florida will probably set me back a couple of days.

Nothing from Amazon and it still reads they are waiting for the inventory.


I popped into a random Best Buy and WalMart and they didn't have the units either ...


It's the hurry up and wait part!

Id guess, unless they are just running behind on notifications vs actual shipments, we should see ours ship Monday.

Pre ordered the Premiere Plus. Email just came in stating item is in stock and will ship next day!

I am also hoping there are no growing pains. I own the Samsung K8500 as a back up. I am curious to see if there are any drawbacks to the frame rate being output as 60 fps on the Roku vs 24 fps on the K8500 which matches my JVC RS400 better.

I am really looking for a better interface and faster all around performance.

The most important feature to me is the ability to play movies at 24P on Netflix. Does anybody know if the 5 will do it ?
