5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing product. Understand it's limitations. Sept. 11 2013
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not the US version Sept. 9 2013
By D&P TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars US vs Canadian Sept. 10 2013
Style Name:Roku 3
There is an easy way to solve DP's problem. See the Unblock-US site. To get all US channels, the Roku account has to be defined using a US address.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product but sucks to be in CDA Oct. 27 2013
By Stacy
Style Name:Roku 3|Verified Purchase
This was an easy setup, and is easy to use. The downfall is the channel list in Canada. It sucks. To access most of the content you want you have to subscribe to a US DSN service to hide your Canadian IP. This will cost you about $60 a year. Still cheaper than cable. I'm ordering 2 more and cancellung my cable tv.

Update: I've changed my opinion on this. By getting the USIP, and subscribing to US Netflix, etc. I am not missing much.

1.0 out of 5 stars welcome to a purple screen of frustration
DHCP error and a very very limited number of apps that work in Canada. Skip it, and buy a Chromecast, you'll be much happier.
