With the number of media streaming devices available, it can be difficult to know which one is the best fit. Along with the unveiling of its second generation streaming devices, Roku has become a serious contender. All three players in the Roku 2 lineup are setting the standard for affordable streaming video devices. All three of the devices handle high-definition streaming video, although the XD is the most affordable with 1080p capability. Let's explore the features of this tiny device, including how it streams high-definition video straight to your big screen. Hardware Each of the Roku 2 devices are approximately the size of a hockey puck. They're less than 4" in either direction and less than 1" high. The weight is approximately 3 oz. The Roku XD does not come with the same gaming remote that comes with the XS model. However, a new gaming remote can be purchased for a nominal price online and will work seamlessly with the XD device. Nevertheless, the standard (non-gaming) remote works just fine with any Roku device since it uses standard IR protocol. You can add the Roku to your universal remote, letting you cut down on the number of remotes you need to track. The Roku XD offers a high-definition picture quality with a 1080p HD output. The Roku offers good streaming capabilities overall according to reviews. Consumers will find that it is easy to find and watch any of the 350+ streaming channel options on the Roku network. Other Features In addition to the 1080p high definition output, the Roku XD accesses streaming media on the internet through your WiFi or Bluetooth connection. The WiFi connection uses the 802.11n wireless local area connection to connect to your high-speed internet connection. The device can be connected to your television via a standard HDMI cable which is not included. Instead, all Roku devices come packaged with a standard RCA A/V cable. In order to get the best high-definition video and sound, you will want to use an HDMI cable. When you purchase an HDMI cable, you'll want to verify that it can handle the 1080p HD output offered by the Roku XD. The Roku XD also offers an SD expansion slot, allowing you to store more channels on your device. The expansion slot makes it easier if you decide to upgrade your Roku device. Your channels and preferences can be stored on the SD card or on your online account and will sync up when you install a new device and log in. If you get a second device for another room, you can simply log into your account and find the preferences that you have saved for your first Roku device, making setup easier the second time around.


Reviews The majority of the online Roku XD reviews confirm that the device is easy to set up and use. Overall experience with the Roku 2 XD is positive, especially for those who already have a high speed internet connection. Thousands of consumers have reviewed this product online and the vast majority have said they would recommend the product to others. It is clear that the Roku XD is making its mark on the online video streaming device market.
