Multimedia, AV My husband stopped trusting me with his PS3 after I burned three Netflix PS3 software disks (a known problem), so he asked me to get my Netflix kick with another device (that was before the disk-less PS3 solution). So I bought the $99 Roku XD|S, the highest Roku model, a Linux-based video streaming TV device.

Love my Roku

I had a friend of mine turn me onto it a little over a year ago. I have an XBox 360, it's fair with playing Netflix and it's damn loud. The Roku box is about the size of a 4 port switch, silent and "just works". The interface is great, has a lot of other optional channels other than just Netflix, like Hulu, Amazon and a whole lot of other free and subscription channels.

I love it ...............

Agreed. I love my Roku as well. One of the best purchases I've made in a long time.

it still needs to be able to play LAN media. I rip all my kid's DVDs to my media server and I want a nice viewing solution for the living room. With the added features of Hulu Plus and Amazon's On Demand movies, it kind of makes the need for Cable TV obsolete.
