The new XD steps it up with 1080p HD video quality and extended-range wireless.

Needs Free Hulu

3out of 5

Pros: Easy to use, Easy to set up, Reliability, Compact, Great value, Built in Wi-Fi, High quality picture, Netflix

Cons: Needs free Hulu, Needs close caption, Want more video choices, Needs internet browser

Best Uses: Living room, Primary TV

Describe Yourself: Technophile

Faster wireless connection than my old XP laptop. Easy to set up with my computer and wireless system. Very good platform for Netflix


Conclusion: Roku XD is good for Neflix viewing and as a wireless hub, but it limited in choices for other viewing. It offers Hulu Plus (a paid service), but not Hulu free, and both have commercials, but Hulu free offers access to  more current programs. If it had an internet browser, you’d never need cable or satellite.
