I love my Roku! Bought one for my Mom last Christmas, she loves listening to Pandora on it, its super easy to use and has a lot of great channels especially Crunchyroll. She did joke however, that I bought her the Roku just so I could watch Crunchyroll whenever I came over to her house. hehehehehe

Roku seems cool. Though I just keep my laptop hooked up to my TV as a monitor 24x7.

I can't wait until Roku gets updated to true HD streaming.

Amazon currently has the top end Roku 3 on sale for $84.99 with free shipping, so it would be a good time to buy. I decided earlier this week to order one as an upgrade to my current unit.

If that is a bit too pricey, TigerDirect.com has refurbished 2 XS models on sale for $59.99 + shipping.

For real economy, check on some of the prices of the older models (like my once top of the line XD|S) on ebay. Those seem to go for around $40-$50 used, including shipping.

One nice feature of all the models I've mentioned is that all have a Ethernet jack (along with WiFi), so you can opt for a wired connection for greater reliability. The other models in the current range are WiFi-only.


At this point, CR's video on the Roku is 480p only, but 720p is coming soon. They submitted an app around the beginning of September that had 720p support, but it was rejected. At last report, it was still being worked on and had not yet been resubmitted.

I wonder why it was rejected? That seems strange. Where are you finding updates on the status of the Roku upgrade?

The streaming on my Roku seems so much steadier and reliable than on my laptop, though that may be because it streams at a low res. But I wonder if their buffering is beefier on the Roku than what they use for the browser-based flash player. The upgrade to 720 will tell I guess.

Though I have to ask now why aren't they doing 1080?

The reason it was rejected wasn't reported, but I assume Roku found some problem that CR's testing did not:
http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-824061/roku-streaming-issue?fpid=44627463

I cannot recall that it has ever been explicitly stated whether or not it would support 1080p, but HD was definitely mentioned, which means at least 720p.

Assuming it didn't have 1080p support, one factor would be that Roku continues to sell some units that top out at 720p. In their current line, that only applies to the LT, but in the past it has applied to more. There could also be a situation where CR bakes in 1080p support, but holds off on deploying 1080p video until the app is deployed for a while with no significant problems being reported.

I have the Roku 3 and will definitely continue as a premium member if it gets a bump from 480 to at least 720p, although i'll be disappointed if it isn't full 1080p.
