    "Currently being a Roku user myself, I will try not to come off subjective here. That being said, I've always felt Roku was a great alternative to cable, especially for those who are not necessarily huge television watchers. "

    "I'm already a big fan of Roku, so when I saw this, I decided to give it a try. One thing to keep in mind, this one is 720p and 1080p, no 4K. Works for me, all of my TVs are 1080p. It's small size is great for when we go on trips. All you need is the USB cable as it can draw power from it, no need to bring the power supply. In a hotel room just plug it up, connect to the WiFi, and I have all my Netflix, Hulu, etc. for relaxing in the room at the end of the day. Since it draws power from the TV, it turns on and off with the TV. This is great for when I'm going to bed at night, I just set the sleep timer on the TV, and when the timer turns the TV off, the Roku also turns off. I read reviews stating that it was slow, so I was a little worried, but that is not the case. Yes, since it is powered by the TV, it takes a minute for the Roku to power up and be ready to go. But let's be realistic, it's like 30 second or so, not a big deal. Once up and running, works just as well as my other Rokus. It comes with a strip of Velcro so you can attach it to your TV. As with other Roku models, you can control it through an app on your phone, which works via the WiFi, not line of sight. So, you can basically attach it to the back of the TV, plug the included USB cable into the USB port on the TV for power, connect the HDMI cable, and you're all set. I'm super happy with the Roku Express and should I need another Roku, this is the one I will buy, I highly recommend it. Enjoy!"

    "I found this to be a very good Media Player. I had an old Sony Media Player and I liked having the ability to use it with my tv to stream netflix and other streaming apps but it was limited to what it was able to do, and downloading apps was not a feature. The SkyStream Two is new and has more current technological features. It allows for downloading apps and has much better picture quality. It also runs on an android operating system which makes it easy to navigate. Some apps and features need a subscription to use but most of them don't which is nice."

    "Not the best internet streaming device. I feel like you would get more bang for your back using chromecast/roku/firestick or another one. They are more affordable and don't depend on bluetooth which can drain your battery."
