With all of these discussions, as we know, it is fine balance between performance, first to market, reliability and price point. Roku has wonderful products, but think of the competition that they are going against. Google, one of the most capitalized companies in the world, Amazon, again another deep pocket company, Apple.....do I need to say anymore?
I know that Roku has it share of problems, but considering where they are in market share, still being a private company and competing against these massive Fortune 500 companies, please give Roku a bit of slack.
My 2 cents!
There is a small Company that has over 400 employees with half in California & the other half in South Dakota. They are competing with the big boys like Sony, Samsung, LG, and others. Just recently they introduced a product that has the big boys attention.
That company is Vizio.
And no, I don't work for Vizio and don't own anything that they make. But their new 4K P series monitors that can display Dolby Digital and in 90 days will also display HDR 10 with firmware update for thousands less than Sony and Samsung......got my attention too.
So Roku should try to stay in the driver's seat and not ride off into the sunset. They have a good name and loyal customers. They offer a product line that is growing like crazy. Everyone has heard about Roku, keep it all good.
