Roku 3500R Streaming Stick - Certified Refurbished
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Works fine for me 10/04/2014

This review is from: Roku 3500R Streaming Stick - Certified Refurbished

Pros: Faster than Roku 1
Better remote, works via RF or bluetooth, doesn't need to "see" main unit
Hidden from sight

Cons: Needs full time external power or unit fully re-boots every time it starts up. USB power from back of TV can supply power, but the power there shuts when the TV shuts, thus full ROKU reboot. I ran a cord from a full time power outlet and now problem is solved. This is something to be aware of. Apparently some TVs have enough power from the HDMI alone to power the stick independently and I have no idea how that power setup affects the reboot situation

Other Thoughts: I am pleased with the purchase, it allows me to have the unit function as a Time Warner cable TV box without the $10 monthly box rental fee. I am used to the operation as I already had a ROKU XS.

Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player Bundle- 2 Motion Sensor Controls Plus 6 ft HDMI Cable & Angry Birds
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: One previous reviewer said Roku 3 didn't have Ethernet connection. W R O N G , it does. BTAIM (be that as it may), I still think this Roku 2 XS is a much better deal

Cons: None, maybe no headphone jack on remote

Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player Bundle- 2 Motion Sensor Controls & Angry Birds
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: EZ setup, EZ channel addition, very intuitive, 1080p beats wii

Cons: Pointer does not control interface, just for games

Other Thoughts: Just cut the Time Warner ripoff cable, streaming direct from PC and NOW with the Roku, I am very content. Kids did not stage insurrection, and yes I AM STILL alive with no cable. Unit was marked B stock, but still had shrink sticky wrap stuff on it. definitely brandy new
