[...] I bought this last night for [...] at a local Target and was online, with the update required, in less than 10 minutes. The YouTube channels are definitely a welcome addition as ROKU does not have a direct YouTube button. Couldn't be happier for the ease of use, value, and the channels it provides. Plus, Netflix works very quick.
I gave this product a score of three stars because once it is set up it works, sort of. First, the manual is useless. Anything of value in it can be figured out without it by anyone who owns a cell phone and when you get to the area in the setup where you need to sign on to your service like Netflix, the manual simply ends. The only reason we were able to continue the process was because my son downloaded a setup app to his iPhone. A search of the Netflix help files gave a procedure that was incompatible with what the Netgear box expected. Once I got it going the unit froze up within a few hours and refused to respond to the remote. I had to cycle the power to get control back. The remote is spongy and slow operating so you have a tendency to press a key more than once. Bad idea since it eventually responds to all the queued commands. Still, the unit has a lot of features for the money so if you're on a serious budget and are willing to go through the painful setup - go for it!
