This is a very neat, very tiny streaming box with a surprising amount of connectivity for its size (hdmi, composite video, usb, micro sd card slot, wired and wireless networking, rf and ir). The device seems to be well made, and comes with power and composite video cables - ethernet and hdmi cables are not included. I have two of these boxes connected to my wired network via Devolo homeplugs, which are a good way to get a wired network point behind a tv set, and they work well.

Setting up is very easy, and on-screen prompts walk you through it. I was slightly puzzled at one point, after letting the box download the latest software, when all I could get on the tv screen were bouncing purple Roku letters. I thought maybe things had locked up, as pressing all the buttons on the remote made no difference (must be the modern equivalent of banging something to make it work!) but I eventually deduced that the bouncy purple letters are displayed while the box is installing its updates, so if your system sits on these for a while, don't worry, it gets there eventually.

Once installed and updated, you can add various content channels either via the website or directly on the box, and in addition to the vetted and approved options in Roku's channel store, there are also private channels, which can be found by googling if you're interested. Roku divides its channels geographically, so UK content is at present quite limited. Having said that, there are more channels than I expected, including movie channels devoted to eg, Anime, old Westerns, old Hollywood films and the like. There are also various news, weather, tech, and other assorted sites, and a number of games.

I bought this box as a quick fix for streaming Netflix to my television and the box performs admirably.

The box itself is tiny, measuring about 3"x3"x1.5". It comes with a standard composite cable rather than HDMI, so an additional cable is required for HD picture.

Out of the box this unit can be setup within 10 minutes, with an easy to follow on screen guide to get the wireless connection going. The only issue is that you will need a computer to register on the Roku site and link the box, although this is only a small niggle.

The remote control is simple to use and required no configuring or special settings. It also runs on Bluetooth, so doesn't require line of site with the box.

Once it is setup, the Netflix interface is very easy to use and very similar to the Playstation 3 version. The quality is brilliant but is dependent on connection speed and stream quality. I'm currently running this on a 42" LCD television using BT Infinity and the quality on a lot of films and TV shows surpasses DVDs. In some cases it's almost as good as actual HD television shows. Not quite Blu-Ray, but a good alternative.

At the moment, there is not an awful lot else available on the box. The only other notable channel is crackle, a free movie streamer offering a limited selection. There is the promise of additional channels from Lovefilm and YouTube in the works, but at the time of writing, they are not available

It is also possible to add private channels of user created content including Break, Flixster, Revision3 & NowhereTV, with a list that is constantly growing.

The only game available as far as I can tell is Angry Birds, which uses the remote control as a controller, very similar to the Wii.

I replaced my Roku LT with this XS model and i'm glad I did.

The unit appears faster than the LT to do things like add new channels, etc and zip through menus.

I have noticed a large build up in channels for the Roku in recent weeks and it is now light years away from where it was when it was first launched, so treat the old reviews with a major pinch of salt. Remember, you can always return the item if you do not like it, so worth a try at least.

I like the mix of free and paid content on the Roku, there is something for everyone there, there are now multiple free movie channels and now tv show channels, mostly with old 50s movies, but there are some newer films such as on Crackle and if you can pay Netflix. Rumoured to be coming soon is SkyNow.

As for other channels, there is sports content, cooking, foreign channels, tech, weather, reviews, traffic cameras, you name it, its on there. Do however keep your expectations in check. Your not going to get the latest blockbuster movies or TV shows for free, that is a fantasy, but you will get free content and you will get new movies if you pay, this is a new industry and content will improve as it grows and matures, so keep that in mind.

It's certainly better than most Smart TV platforms and so far I have tried AppleTV, Sony Qriocity and Samsung Smart Apps and it beats all of those.

Connectivity: There are multiple options to hook this box us to use content stored on your Mac or PC, I personally choose Plex and it works well. The XS also has a USB socket and will play many files via that socket, so USB keys, USB HDD's, etc.
