Question

Which roku is best to purchase?

I want to purchase a roku box to free myself from the bondage of cable!-LOL! Which roku should I purchase? I currently have wireless with two laptops but its not like there will ever be more one person on a laptop while the kids watch a movie. That being said, I think the $75 box is enough. Help!

$75 box is sufficient but for $20 more you have the upgrades that you might want in the future.

Just my .02... I would hook the laptop to the tv. The roku ois fine, but limited as far as the online video content..unless you pay a monthly fee for netflix or something. But, this defeats the purpose of cutting the cable...lol. You can download some really cool media browser programs from the web that will let you use the laptop on the tv and browse all your media.

I think the Roku DX box is very good. I bought the Roku DXS box from Walmart for $98. After having it a week and moving it between my 2 tv's I went out and bought th Roku DX for $78. Just as good If I was to do it over I would buy the for both tv's. It does the job just greet.

I guess it depends on you. For $20 more I got the latest duel band technology, optical audio out and a usb port. Right now you can get a free player and play digital movies and music. (limited formats) I felt it was worth the money. New routers and devices are coming out with duel band. I am ready if I upgrade things.

Yes if you have a subscription to MLBTV content you will be able to watch it using a Roku. Blackouts the same as TV. But you can watch any game going back 7 days.

two SSIDs on my wireless router. One supported 2.4GHz and the other supported 5GHz. I had been wondering why my Roku XDS was only talking on the 2.4GHz frequency when the specs indicated that it could also use the 5GHz frequency. I had a lightbulb moment and reconfigured my Roku to use the SSID corresponding to my 5GHz frequency.

In case you are still wondering what dual band wireless is (I see you posted this about a month ago, so not sure...): many people who have routers have single band wireless, which is fine when you have just one or two wi-fi devices in use in your wireless network. Sometimes, when you have multiple devices that are wi-fi, all the signals simultaneously coming to/from the router and the devices -- along with interference from such things as a wireless phone or even a microwave -- create a wi-fi "logjam" of sorts; as a result, your devices will likely suffer from slow internet speeds.

Dual-band wireless allows another path for wi-fi signals to go, alleviating the traffic and speeding up your connection overall (that is, bringing it closely back to the same rate of speed as if you had just one or two wi-fi device in your home network).

You can check out channels here: http://www.roku.com/roku-channel-store

Google made Roku take down YouTube but you can get private channel 1080P Showcase and it has a lot of HD youtube channels.

The "more" consists of things like Pandora, news feeds, radio streaming, and "junky" video sites that have undesirable content (like old public domain movies). No Youtube (though they can easily add content in the future and this seems like an easy, logical addition). You cannot access things like fox.com or nbc.com. Netflix and Huluplus are by far the most useful thing this device does, but for many people (myself included) that is enough.
