Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player W/ Motion Sensor Control & Angry Birds - 3100X-B

5 out of 5 eggs Remotes DOA -- PAIR THEM FIRST! 01/06/2014

This review is from: Roku 2 XS 1080p HD Streaming Media Player W/ Motion Sensor Control & Angry Birds - 3100X-B

Pros: Works great! Arguably faster than the new Roku 2!

Cons: Not as fast as the (more expensive) Roku 3? It works fine though. Definitely faster than earlier models. I really wish the normal menus (typing, etc.) used the motion control instead of arrows.

Other Thoughts: The remotes don't come paired up with the unit, and as far as I know, don't light up until they're paired (or at least in pairing mode).

There's a button in battery compartment! Hold button in battery compartment for 3+ seconds until the front LEDs blink, then reboot the Roku.

Pros: These are great laptops in general -- I've used/sold a ton of them. T-Series Thinkpads are about as nice of laptop as you'll find anywhere.

Cons: Newegg claims these are refurbished by Lenovo themselves. I doubt it. No Lenovo literature, paperwork that -did- come was photocopied, hand-made.

I'd consider this used. NOT refurbished.

Also, had to RMA this one because keys were sticking / didn't work.

Other Thoughts: Again, while these are rock solid laptops in general, I don't know who is "refurbishing" them, but it's not up to par.
