Just upgraded from 2XS to ROKU 2, Wow!

Sat May 21, 2016 9:30 am

I just upgraded from my Roku 2xs to the newer Roku 2
What a big difference.
Loads everything much faster.
Youtube loved really fast as compared to my 2XS
Netflix has a different look, loads really fast too.
I think the 5G wifi really helps streaming too.
Worth the upgrade
I give it 5 stars
(2) ROKU 2, 2XS Angry Birds Edition, ROKU 2XS, ROKU 2XD ROKU LT

I no longer have Netflix, but this would be a "minus" for me. I hated the "new look" on my Xbox apps. I'll always choose function over graphics.
Having both composite and HDMI outputs is a plus, as is being able to choose 480p on HDMI if some assinine content provider decided to stretch OAR 4:3 to 16:9.
Charter Spectrum 60; d-link dual band router
Roku 4210, 3710; Xbox One, 360; Samsung BD player

1080p and 720p TVs

l resisted upgrading from 2XD for a long time, mostly because I hate the new Netflix (which I experienced with Amazon Fire TV).

I love the Roku 2, much better performance. But I do miss the old Netflix interface. The new one still pisses me off with abruptly shrinking the screen at the end of a movie or TV episode, starting the next TV episode after the opening credits and with the automatic play when you're only trying to read the description. GRRRRRRRRR.

Same upgrade I did a while back and though I miss the bluetooth remote of the XS the 2 4210 is all around much better

I am thinking about a Roku 2, but I will keep the LT and run both, either off the same account or different accounts. That way I can keep the things I like about the LT and the stuff that works better on the 2. I guess that is a way to have your cake and eat it too.
