To the comment: "Roku 3 prices should come down"
I agree but that is where the new Roku 2 comes in. Pretty much a cheaper Roku 3 but with a basic remote instead of advanced. However, if Roku 4 doesn't get better (in terms of quality) since it is having so many issues, you can somewhat safely predict:
1. Roku 4 units will be sold cheaper at $100 (First re-furbished units then all others)
2. New Roku 3 will be sold in the $80 range
3. Roku 2 in the same $60 range
4. Roku 1/SE (Maybe even HDMI stick) will sell at the Roku LT base price of $40 to $50.
Over time, when Roku sees that there is no longer a demand for an analog connected box they will drop the Roku 1/SE line and then just sell the Roku stick at the entry-level price. You may be able to get a refurbished first generation Roku 3 for the same price as a new entry-level model.
Just my opinion, but if Roku 4 issues are not addressed and they see that units are not selling properly as a result, this may be the pattern they will be following. We will probably see this sales pattern when the holiday season is over. For now, they will try to make as much money as they can in units sold. I strongly recommend to wait a bit and see if Roku 4's get better before spending $130 and then have to deal with exchanges and heating issues.
