Pros:

Easy to set up

Lot´s of content to choose from, even more if you know the password for some pre-released channels.

HD Quality in most channels.

All major streaming services in one device (you still have to pay to each provider, Roku only provides the platform)

Having an ethernet port is a plus (WiFi included, of course)

Bluetooth remote allows placing the Roku out of line of sight which it´s great if you don´t want yet another device to show up in front of your TV. You can safely place it somewhere behind.

USB port allows to play content from your local network, if you install the proper software on the Roku.

Cons:

UI kinda slow.. not unbearably slow, but could be faster

In order to set up the device you need a Roku account, which asks for your credit card info, even if you are not going to add any paying channels. Want to avoid the hassle? Dial a 1-800 number and speak to a rep.
Roku should not ask for CC info unless buying a channel

Other Thoughts:

Mainly, this is a streaming device only. You can find a way to play content you already own, let´s say from a NAS or a portable hard drive, but keep in mind that support is somewhat limited as opposed to other media player gadgets you can find.
