Calm down. First off,
- Roku has the availability of private channels which gives it a huge advantage over any blu-ray player.
- When combined with a PlayOn subscription, the Roku can stream most anything from your computer, including various channels that only have programming available from their website. There is so much more content available with this combo, that I can't recommend getting a Roku without a Playon.tv subscription.
- Much more support, new apps, and upgradeable than a Blu-ray player
- The Roku has the most streamlined and fastest GUI than any other Blu-ray player I've tried.
For a new guy on this forum, I'd tread a little bit lighter around here if I were you. This is a good group of people that appreciate knowledge and input; not sarcasm and putdowns.
-Private channels, you mean like the ones on my Panasonic blu-ray (over 100.. including 17x 3D channels)
-Play-on is not an alternative to my unlimited internet access and flash player capability of my Panasonic blu-ray.
-My blu-ray player updates each week, and has Hulu, Netflix, Crackle, Vudu, certain free channels (over 100), access to basic cable via wifi, Google Video, Amazon Prime, Youtube, and the internet...
-My blu-ray has 1.75x the processing speed of the latest Rku player
You say people are looking for knowledge and input and that is all I am stating. You cannot argue these facts, or the fact that my vlu-ray outperforms your Roku. I am trying to provide a complete and fair comparison for the uneducated to make an informed decision. The more you rely on opinions and ignore hard facts the less people trust your input.
