Describe Yourself: Netflix fan, Technophile

This is a very good quality product offered at a reasonable price. It is super-easy to setup. I do not use a HDTV. I have a non-digital TV and I wanted to keep my expenses to a minimum (instead of buying a Blue-Ray DVD Player). I read about this product online, read a bunch of reviews on Amazon.com and contacted Roku once just to get a feel for their phone support (although pre-sales at that point). I was immediately impressed.

I ordered the product from Amazon, got it in 2 days. It took me all of 15 minutes or less to set up the Roku XR. I have watched close to 25 movies in less than a month since I got the device. I could not be happier.

The Roku XR has all the bells and whistles I would probably need when I upgrade to a slim television and I will continue to use the device, until technology out-modes it.

Using the Roku XR, one can connect to different movie libraries. I use both Amazon and Netflix.

Roku XR rocks! I highly recommend it.
