  • Bought this along with a new tv for my mom last wednesday. It works great much better than the old roku and old as in the remote had “blockbuster” key on it. Great purchase. Comes along with an HDMI cable. Happy with the purchase. Sometimes the picture freezes but it happened only twice so far.
  • I was browsing at my favorite Best Buy location and just when I was about to leave empty handed, I chanced upon this Roku Express streaming device. Apparently it just recently came out and that being said, I was surprised at how low-priced it is for what it can do. Since I have been thinking of setting up my small spare TV as a workout room entertainment device, I decided to purchase it and I was immediately satisfied by this little gem. The device is super easy to set up and syncs seamlessly with my other Roku device built in to my giant 4K TV. Some reviewers said that it is sluggish but so far with mine, it hasn’t really been that pronounced. I didn’t expect it to be as snappy as the one built in to my 4K TV but I mean come on, the thing’s 30 bucks. Sound and picture/image quality are quite acceptable and live streaming so far with at least one news app is highly reliable (wi-fi dependent of course). Overall, this device is capable enough at it’s price point but I would suggest to get the more feature-packed and pricier Roku devices if you are thinking about using streaming devices for your main TV and entertainment hub.

  • I’ve been looking to replace my first-gen Chromecast when the Roku Express was released. After reading a few online reviews, I had a few reservations, but was seduced by the $30 price tag. I’m so glad I took the leap and bought this little streamer. The navigation isn’t as lightening fast as a $100 box, but it will be more than fast enough for most people. The apps load fine, but once again, may be a tad slower to load than a more expensive unit. The one other minor drawback is that the remote is IR, so you must aim the remote at the unit. The real test is video quality, and the Express streams with no image degradation or stuttering. You just can’t find a better streaming experience for this price. For $30 you get the Roku interface and channel selection and a real remote (no being stuck with your phone!).
  • Picked one up on release day. HDMI cable is included albeit very short. The remote is IR so you will have to position the Box with line of sight to the remote. I have not tried with the RC APP from my smart phone. It is quick to load and very stable so far. Very pleased for the price!
  • Only had it for a few hours. Here’s what I found so far. It’s important that you use the HDMI cable provided as I was getting flickering in 1080p using my own cable. My previous Roku was the Roku HD. Pretty old and and used the old Netflix interface. The express is much faster and uses the new Netflix interface. I tried the new Roku streaming stick and it is super fast. However it wouldn’t play nice with my harmony hub so I really needed one with IR. In general, the interface is half the speed of the streaming stick. Actually it’s fast enough with the main interface but in the new Netflix app, it’s sluggish. Hopefully they can speed it up in future updates. Other apps work fine.
    I’d be ok in using this for a second TV but not for my main streaming box. All in all I prefer the Amazon fire stick. The original fire stick is faster than this one and I’m holding out for the updated fire stick later this month. There are a couple of reviews out there on CNET and another site. I’ll say this, it’s not as bad as they make it out to be. You get your$29 worth. Take that however you want to. But spend the extra $20 and get the streaming stick.
