Roku 3 Review
In this Roku 3 review Roku promises that this 3 will be the media streamer to rule all. This Roku 3 box offers in excess of 750 channels (comprising the newly added FOX NOW, PBS and PBS Kids, that are going to launch soon), a quicker processor for snappier search and navigation, a whole new interface for the user as well as a remote equipped with the headphone output. This is certainly all great, but unfortunately, there is no YouTube built-in support.
Roku’s new interface retains simpleness that Roku is renowned for while offering improved admittance to channels as a result of a grid system that exhibits more options at the same time. As well as the fully integrated Roku Channel Store and one-stop search helps viewers very easily pinpoint what they really want to look at and make it happen instantly. As a general bonus, this new interface will automatically unveil as being a free application update in April for all current-generation Roku devices, such as the Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500R), Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2 XS as well as the Roku Streaming Stick.
The Roku 3′s rear panel provides an HDMI output, microSD slot, USB port, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet jack, and power jack. Users will get up to 1080p HD video, 7.1 and 5.1 digital audio via HDMI and having access to MP4 and MKV video, and AAC, and MP3 audio tracks via USB. Those not having Ethernet operating through their houses will take pleasure in the latest dual-band WiFi adapter with support for a/b/g/n practices.
Even though the Roku’s channel selection is the best in its class, and a lot more features and content can be obtained with simple mods, it is really a disappointment that it does not appear we are going to get a native YouTube app in the near future. Seemingly rivaling Google TV does have it’s disadvantages, since it would appear hardware capability isn’t the reason why a YouTube channel remains absent. That is a challenging break for Roku, since almost every other platform for streaming media does.
We hope you have found this Roku 3 review to be helpful and helped you to make up your mind to purchase it.
