Roku 3 Review
The rumours are true! The Roku 3 digital media player has been released and is now on sale in the USA. So far, the videos showing the new user interface look amazing. It is good timing for Roku as the interface was one area where improvement was needed. The best part about the new interface is that it will be available to all existing Roku devices as a software upgrade.
Roku 3 Dashboard
The biggest change to the user interface is the new roku dashboard which has been totally redone. Now, you can view your channels in a 3 by 3 grid and scroll horizontal and vertical in order to find things quicker. This update alone is enough to make a lot of people happy.
Roku 3 Search Feature
Roku has taken the dashboard navigation a step further and added the a search feature for the main dashboard view. Now, you can start searching for content and the Roku will automatically find it if it exists in any of the channels that you have installed. Sometimes, it will find it in multiple channels. For example, if you search for popular tv shows, it will show up on Netflix and Hulu.
With over 750+ channels to browse through, this is a handy feature to have.
Roku 3 New Features
The Roku 3 has many new features. As mentioned above; the software has been totally redone, however the improvements don’t stop there. The hardware has also been improved, The most noticeable change is the shape of the device. It is a bit smaller and has rounded edges. The remote looks the same and has all of the same buttons but there is now an audio out port on the remote that allows headphones to be plugged in.
The new hardware is over 5 times faster than the previous Roku versions and is therefore extremely responsive. No more choppy scrolling when you want to scroll through your channel list as quick as possible. The channels load instantly, and the search functions are ligthing fast.
Pure HD Quality
If you don’t have a high definition TV, then you might want to stick with your older Roku device. The Roku 3 is tailored for HD tv’s only. Seriously though, if you don’t have a HD tv set it is worthwhile to save up for one.
Roku 3 Price
When I first saw the price, I thought it was an error. The Roku 3 sells for just $99 dollars which is amazing for all of the new improvements. The Roku 2 XS which was the best device up until now was selling for $99 so for the new device to come in at the same price is a huge bonus. As of March 6th, 2013 the Roku 2 XS is no longer being sold on the Roku website.
Summary of the Roku 3
So far, these are just some of the new features to look forward to in the Roku 3 streaming media player. The new player has been a long time coming and it is good to see that the company is continuing to innovate in the streaming media field. If you live in the United States, get your credit card out and order your Roku 3 device today. You won’t regret it.
