The Roku 3, which won C-Net's Editor's Choice Award, supports the most services of any of the media center boxes. The Roku also has a MicroSD slot for expanded memory, provides a headphone jack on the remote, and provides apps for using your phone as a remote - both on iOS and Android. The Roku's one flaw - its lack of a YouTube channel, can be overcome using Twonky Beam to stream YouTube videos from your phone.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Con Easy to accidentally change channel
It's very easy to accidentally sit on the remote, and stop your video, or exit the channel. Apple Remote does not have this problem.
Con Frustrating & complex remote design
For some apps like YouTube, left and right switches videos. While left and right on Netflix will fastforward/rewind. Apple Remote is a better & simpler design, a direction pad & select button is all you need.
Con Not a hobbyist platform
It's next to impossible to alter the core of the Roku, like create custom notifications. While new channels can be made, existing ones can't be modified.
