Roku 2 Reviews

The Roku 2 review is here!

Well, the Roku 2 is here, and the Roku Reviews are pouring in.

But unlike many of the blogs out there, Roku Review is here to provide an objective, unbiased review of the new Roku 2 streaming media box – which plays web video from popular services like Netflix and Hulu on your TV.

I wasn’t given a free Roku to write about. I don’t work for Roku. I’m just a guy who is passionate about web video, consumer electronics, and bridging that gap between the web and traditional forms of media and entertainment.

And the Roku 2 does just that, streaming web-based video right to your TV.

Why the Roku Rocks?

Well, there’s nothing like it on the market.

Sure, there are connected gaming systems, like my Wii, but it's not HD like the Roku 2. Or you could always connect your computer to your TV like a monitor with an HDMI cable, etc. But that's a pain, drains your computer resources, and takes an IT pro -- not to mention an expensive video card -- to install and manage.

The Roku, on the other hand, not only keeps the geeks in the crowd happy with all of its state-of-the-art features, but it keeps the entertainment fiends excited with access with almost any streaming media you can think of. And you get them all without an annual fee. Who does that?

Three Roku Models

Three versions of the Roku 2 were released in Summer 2011, and three models retail for under $100 -- the HD ($59.99), XD ($79.99) and Roku 2 XS ($99.99).

Expert Roku Reviews

But you don't have to take my word on the Roku 2. Here are some quotes from three of the tech sites I respect most on the Web:

Mashable: "This is big fun... it can't be beat"

Gizmodo: "...phenomenal streaming video boxes."

TechCrunch: "...best general consumer media streamer..."

Check out the rest of our content on RokuReview for additional product details, news and resources on this great streaming media player, which I gave five stars across the board.
