This review is from: Roku 3500R Streaming Stick - Certified Refurbished
Pros: Easy Setup, works great.
Other Thoughts: I love this item. This came in a new looking box and looked brand new. It works great for Netflix, etc.

Pros: Good build, nice finish. Pretty fast once it boots up.
Cons: Pressing F1 to F12 function keys requires 2 key combination (must press Fn Key at bottom left and F# key in top row). Legends for F# keys in top row are in tiny red letters. Very slow startup. Useless Lenovo Apps.READ FULL REVIEW

It was fairly easy to setup and has some great features like a USB port that can be set up as a print server, media server or ftp site. The signal strength and range were not as good as the WR740N which is only a 150Mbps non-g
