Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Composite output not PAL (for UK TVs) 23 Jan 2014
One of the main reasons for getting this product was to add SMART TV functionality to an old analogue TV; in particular using iPlayer.
I was disappointed therefore to find that the AV composite output conformed to the USA NTSC colour encoding standard and not the UK PAL standard. Roku support confirmed that this was the case and that there was no way of changing the output to conform to the UK colour system. The upshot of this is that old UK TVs will display the AV output in black and white only.
I did however have an old TV (14 years old) that supported NTSC but this displayed another problem in that after the unit had booted up into the menus, the colour would flicker every so often. Not a major flicker but enough to be irritating. I Googled about and it would seem that the likely culprit is the use of Macrovision copy protection at a higher level than the TV was capable of ignoring.
So to get a viable picture I either had to buy a new TV (maybe SmartTV and return Roku) or try an HDMI to SCART converter which I just happened to have on me due to an earlier project (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AQ1LCZ0/ref=oh_details_o07_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1)
Well everything works fine with that adapter, but if I'd known that I'd have to use that I would have bought the Roku 3 without the composite output in the first place!

Now that it's all working I like the product - the WI-FI is fine, it streams well and the user interface is straight forward.

One last thing, don't use the HDMI output with a monitor with a HDCP compliant DVI interface as although technically it should work (not supported say Roku support) it doesn't.

4.0 out of 5 stars Makes streaming to the television very easy. 4 Feb 2012
By Darren
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.
