Which Roku Should I Buy

 

It is an undisputed fact that the craze for Roku media boxes or digital media receivers has reached a fever pitch and for a good reason. The outrageous and ever-increasing cost of cable or digital satellite bills has been a concern for many consumers for several years. This cost concern has been accentuated or made worse by the recent economic backlash that is sweeping all over the country due to the worst recession that the world has ever known. It is true that the Roku media boxes or digital media receivers have been a real life saver for many; however due to the wide variety available out there, it is important to know their features in order to make more informed buying decisions.  I own each of the most recent models either at home or at one of my offices so let me take a moment to talk about the differences between them.

 

Roku 3

This is the latest Roku media box and is famed as the top of the line. It comes fully loaded and is compatible with all HDTVs making it quite versatile. Amongst the many features include: 750+ entertainment channels, built in wireless capability (Wi-Fi b/g/n compatible), new on-screen experience with one-stop search, instant replay on remote, and plays both 720p HD video and 1080P HD video. It also comes with motion control for games (Angry Birds space included), Dual –band wireless, Ethernet and USB port.  The remote for the Roku 3 also has an earbud port that allows you to listen to what is on the screen directly on the remote.  No more waking up my wife while I watch a late movie.

 

Roku 2 XD

The Roku 2 XD is yet another media box in the series that delivers outstanding quality and is very easy to set up. It works virtually on any TV and also include: 750+ entertainment channels, new on-screen experience with one-stop search, instant replay control remote as well as a built-in wireless compatibility (Wi-Fi b/g/n compatible). While it also plays 720p HD video and 1080p HD video, it does not contain motion control for games, dual-band wireless, remote with headphone jack, Dual-band wireless, Ethernet port and USB port.
