Style Name: Roku 3
Purchases this from Amazon.com before it was available on amazon.ca. A great deal on .com even better here on Amazon.ca.

First off: I use unblockus as well. I really believe this is the only way to maximize the use of the roku.

Roku 3: Its fast. Easy to use. Amazing picture quality. My favorite feature is combining the roku with the PLEX media server. Allowing you to wirelessly stream your downloaded movies to your TV in HD quality. PLEX is a must. I love the fact that it uses less energy than most nightlight's. It's incredibly small but not too light. Roku stated that with the roku3 they didn't bother making it any lighter and I could see how if they had your hdmi cable would easily pull it around if moved at all. I have yet to have any problems with it. It has yet to stall, freeze or need rebooting.

Notes: I was surprised at the lack of mounting bracket available on the market. To maximize its range it needs to be somewhat in the open. This would be essential if you had it connected wirelessly to another tv on a different floor. Easy solution. I attached heavy duty velcro to the back of the roku and to my tv. The weight of the cables doesn't pull it off and this way all I have to do is reach around to the back of the tv to access the USB port if I wanted to play movies off the flash drive.

The remote is nice and light. Well built and easy to use. The much touted headphone jack is nice but to be completely honest I really haven't found a need to use it. Would be a great feature in a shared bedroom. I do however wish someone would create a third party Gel Bumper Cover similar to the Wii Remotes to help protect it. But a minor detail.

Limitations: It seems everyone is moving to replace their cable.

Style Name: Roku 3 Verified Purchase
First thing I noticed was the absence of the much-touted, all-seeing roku search function. It's supposed to find any and all titles throughout the myriad of channels and even give the respective costs to watch it. US only, I'm afraid. Major disappointment.
Then I tried adding channels. Many worked (Netflix, Skynews, Crackle, Vimeo, TED, Livestream, NowhereTV).
But so many are "not available in you area". Such as CNN, BBC, Hubblespace HD, Hulu, Amazon, Spotify, CBCpod, ACEbroadcasting, MythTV, Nook, and Google Maps.
The usb player works fine. The remote is great. The machine is fast and the menus are quick.
Overall, the whole thing seems hobbled compared to what they get in the US. I'll try it for a week but will probably return it, unfortunately. I really hoped this was the device that would free me from cable.

Edit: I bumped it up to 3 stars after following the instructions in Andy Woods' review. Don't get me wrong, the Canadian version is definately very restricted compared to the US version. But I did the following:
1. Pay $5/month to unblock-us so it looks like your router is in the US
2. Register with Roku using Paypal and a made-up US address
The amount of channels available to me now has increased ten-fold (if not more). New options include: the search function mentioned above (and yes, it is great), Plex, Pandora, Spotify, Disney, PBS Kids, Hulu, Redbox, Syfy, HuffPost, NBC News, and on and on and on.
I'm not thrilled about paying monthly, but chances are good I've now found my cable replacement.

Second edit:
PLEX offically makes this a cable killer for me. Free app. Gives me access to CTV local news. And it connects to my media files on my computer, organizes them, adds posters and descriptions, and streams them to my Roku with no hassle at all. I've now ordered my second Roku and have cancelled cable. Upped this review to 4/5 stars.

Style Name: Roku 3
First, I would like to preface this by saying that I've owned three Apple TVs (one 2nd gen, and two 3rd gen), a Chromecast, and three Roku 3s (one as a gift, and two in different rooms of my home). I also have the usual plethora of other Netflix-enabled devices to compare against.

I ended up buying a Roku 3 as an experiment before it launched in Canada (I imported it from the US), as the private listening headphone function was too good to pass up for my bedroom. We had an Apple TV in there originally, but it was hardly ideal to watch a film/TV show while the other person is trying to sleep. This solved that, and did a wonderful job at doing so (it accepts any kind of typical 3.5mm headphones, so if you have a better set, it's worth using them - not to say the included earbuds are bad, they're just average).

Eventually I sold my Apple TVs in the other parts of my home for another Roku as it supported Plex, as well as direct USB media input (eg. external hard drives). For me, that's worth it alone over the Apple TV, as Plex is better than most of the media servers I was using with the Apple TV, and you didn't need an iOS device/Apple device to run them (which I had, but it's not ideal when you have guests over).

The third Roku was a gift I purchased for someone due to my own experiences with the devices. They really enjoyed it and get a lot of mileage out of it.

Some things to note, however: If you're using a DNS-based service to get access to the American Netflix, the Roku (unlike the Apple TV) has no native way to change the DNS entry on the device, so this must be done on your router, so it affects all traffic. There is no other way to do this otherwise.
