Great picture quality, easy setup, simple design, connects to wifi quickly, smooth streaming, brighter colors (I compared to my HD tv's built in Hulu app and the Roku's Hulu app and there's a big difference in color brightness), the remote app is still great, more choices for screensavers (now you can choose your own photos or their 4K ones), and when you connect headphones to the remote it doesn't skip or stop working.
None so far. If you use the gaming buttons of other Roku devices, the fact that this remote doesn't have them might be a con, but I never used them so it doesn't make a difference to me.
The layout and setup is practically the same as previous models. The biggest differences are the picture quality and speed of the devices. There's an obvious difference that you can see. The device itself is wider than previous models, but thinner. The remote has a matte finish which is different than the older model's remote I had.
Another perk is that you get almost all the same features as the Apple TV, but cheaper. You can't beat that!
I ordered this from Amazon with 2 day shipping and it shipped and was delivered on time. Box and device were clean and not damaged.
Would recommend to everyone!
To be fair, when it works, the Premiere+ is great. The picture and sound quality are great, and 4k HDR content look fantastic, if not as sharp as a 4k HDR Blu Ray. And honestly, it works most of the time. However it seems to give me a bit too much trouble.
I haven't journaled its success rate, but it seems to be at least 3-4 times a week where I turn on my AV system and there is no signal coming from the box, but only this one. All other sources come up aces.
Additionally, seemingly once a week or so, it disconnects from the WiFi. This is especially annoying as I use a Logitech Harmony remote, and when it disconnects from the network it means I must drag out another remote to reconnect. Thankfully the device usually saves my WPA key which saves me time.
If course I'd rather use the ethernet cable like I do for my Blu Ray player and Playstation 4, but that method fails even more frequently than the wireless method.
Length of use – 1 month
Setup – Extremely easy. The Premier+ plugged it into the HDMI of my AVR and plugged the power into a separate outlet. At first I used the WiFi connection on the Premier+ but later switched to Ethernet. The Streaming Sticks are plugged into the HDMI of the TVs and to separate power outlets. The remotes are small but easy to use.
Ease of Use – It took a little bit of adjusting to getting around when flipping channels etc., but we are now fairly efficient at it. Adding/deleting channels is a snap. Each device keeps its own channels apps separately, which can be moved, etc., without effecting other Roku devices.
Customer Service – Have not had to contact.
Features – Content is amazing. There are websites dedicated to Roku channel selections allowing you to filter through the numerous amount. Many are free, some have subscriptions which we avoid, some tie their use to you having a cable provider (isn’t this an oxymoron?). Our mobile devices can be used to look at content or used as a remote. A big benefit is we are now see true 1080P vs the 720P output from the cable company.
Issues/Concerns – We have experienced some buffering on PlayStation Vue and NewsOn but nothing significant. On one of the Streaming Sticks we have experienced some issues with the remote not working at times. We just power down and up and it sorts itself out. This may be an issue with local power brownouts lately affecting the internet modem.
Other – We also looked at the various streaming packages available from certain companies. We decided on PlayStation Vue as we liked their channel selection best. The DVR feature is slick and easy. All content is available through any PC or mobile device as well as well as the Guide. The number of usable HD channels is now more numerous than our previous cable provider. One of the best things is flexibility. If another streaming service comes along, I can try it out. Hardware is also not a big deal to switch should something new come along.
Quality – I give the equipment a high rating. I have one 55” 1080P TV and two smaller 720P TVs. I would highly recommend if you plan on using Roku for 1080P to get something that takes Ethernet. I have good broadband and WiFi but Premier+ just couldn’t cope with the 1080P via WiFi. The 720Ps do just fine on WiFi. I wish the Premier+ had come with 1000 Base-T for the Ethernet vs just 10/100 as I believe this would have eliminated any buffering. Maybe in the future. As far as sound quality it’s on par with cable. I have the Premier+ hooked into my AVR and get great sound through my speakers.
Price – I consider the price very reasonable. My net monthly savings vs the cable TV portion is about $58 which will pay for the equipment in less than 4 months.
Glad we made the change. Between this and switching to Ooma for our landline we are saving many $$$. Very happy camper.
EDIT: 3/26/17 - Last night the unit just died in the middle of watching a Netflix movie. Over the past month we haven't had any issues. I am sending it back for a replacement. I'll keep the 5 star rating for now.
I looked at the cheaper Roku devices (I would rather have purchased a Streaming Stick instead of a hockey-puck device). The main reason for getting this Roku device over the other ones was the built-in ethernet connection. Wifi is great, but I didn't want to eat into our wifi bandwidth when our router is literally 1 foot from the TV. I wanted to plug in directly to the router.
First the Pros: this is a fantastic device. It is quick and the interface looks fresh and modern.
Watching video content is incredibly smooth and videos start mostly instantaneously. There is no sense that the device is buffering content, especially at the beginning of playback. Some devices that I have seen start playing in a heavily degraded resolution and then scale up the resolution after a short period. With the Roku, every frame is HD from start to finish.
The iOS remote app is great. I love how when you go to search for a movie or show, the app switches to a keyboard so you can type much faster than using the arrow keys to select individual letters.
Now the Cons:
The Roku device is an excellent device, but it falls short in a few small areas that would make it perfect if they were corrected.
First, the Bluetooth remote is excellent, but it needs an IR transmitter as well so that you can control the TV power, volume, and input. I hate having to pick up a second remote just to change the volume.
Second, pressing "home" to take the device out of standby should send the signal to the TV to switch to the input for the device. The other devices that I have connected to the TV do this (DirecTV, Bluray, Xbox). We have to pick up another remote and switch the input manually.
Third, the "gobally available watchlist" feature seems to be non-existent. Maybe that was my misconception but I thought that the Roku had a watchlist that you could add content to, and then just pick the source (Netflix, Prime, Hulu, etc) to watch. I have added a few shows to the watchlist (from the Roku search menu), but I can't seem to see where that watchlist is actually found in the interface.
All in all, this was a great purchase and I am loving my Roku!!
