My brother has a roku and likes it. I'm curious to see the responses to your question LP, I've been thinking about going that route as well.

I think offered 'apps' is about the only difference besides price. Now damn near every new TV, BluRay, etc has a network connection to directly stream NetFlix, Hulu, Vudu & more, basically an internal Roku. I do not know the cost of a Roku box as opposed to a Samsung or Sharp BDP that has the same features built-in.

Wired.com reviewed 4 streaming boxes.... Might give you better info than I can...

I have a Roku 2....it's ok. Crackle, Netflix, Amazon are all meh as far the movie choices they offer. I could see myself canceling my $150 cable bill and just installing digi sats and using Roku's

If/when HBO ever offers ala carte HBO Go then I will enjoy it
