    Roku is pretty nice ... the ui and gyro remote is cool, but it won't play local files on your network very well or at all... great for online streaming though

    I would not buy it just for Netflix as our Samsung Bluray player does that for the same price.

    try out the PLEX application and server. Works great and is free.

    I love ours. I have 2 of them and we use it for the pandora, amazon vod, netflix, and hulu. I've had mine for years so I have the youtube channel but that should be coming officially before the end of the year. Lots of great channels on it.

    Been playing with a googletv and other than the web browsing I think I prefer the roku.
