    Does anyone here have one?

    I have a Roku 2 that needs to be replaced, and was wondering if any of you exceptional human beings have owned or used one.

    Thanks

    Roku is the best. Why get anything else?

    I have Nvidia's Shield TV which, like the Nexus player, is based on Android TV, except with a greatly souped up ability to play games(and stream them from Nvidia's servers or off your own Nvidia graphics card equipped PC). I like it, and its ability to act as a Cast device, but having installed my mom's Roku 3, and played with it, the ecosystem is far more mature than Android TV, and if you're not going to be playing games, and using it solely as a media consumption device, I'd get the newest Roku 3 or 4.
