I’m cautious on refurbs. Bought a refurbished Roku 3 a while back on Woot. Got it and it did not work. Had to do a bit of run-around to resolve issue (Amazon <-> Woot). Turned out to be a defective power cord. Wasn’t quite as ‘refurbished’ as it should have been.
Same happened to me recently…had to return it.
Why buy a refurbished one for $60 + $5 buck shipping, when you can get a new one for $70 and Free shipping directly from Roku?
Be careful. Bought mine about two weeks ago. Remote refuses to pair with the box. Still fighting with Roku to either fix or replace. Not the first time this has happened. I’m learning to be very careful when buying refurb electronics from woot!
You can’t buy a roku 3 for $70 from Roku, it’s $99.
These aren’t tested before shipping them out. Just got one and it won’t go past home screen. A total waste of time… Buyer Beware.
Sure they’ll take it back but the time I wasted… What I get for buying “reconditioned”
Just sent back my refurb roku stick to amazon. I already own 3 different rokus but I would stay away from the refurbs. Sounds like these lack quality control
I bought one a few weeks ago from Woot…already regret getting a refurb. Going to be returning mine too. Signal constantly skips like I am watching an old VHS tape.
The Roku 2 2015 has the same specs has the Roku 3 2015 minus the voice search remote.
I ordered two reconditioned Roku about 3+ years ago from Woot. I also have a refurb. Roku 2 w/ Angry Birds. I must have gotten lucky bc all three are still going strong.
I’ve been debating about purchasing the Roku 3, simply because it’s faster and it has the audio jack. But after hearing reviews here, I think I will hold up a little longer. They have come down between $5-$10 since the last time I saw them offered here.
I don’t why there are always seems to be one or two Wooters that post claims about finding products at a cheaper price, but can’t never seem to post the links to said sites.
I don’t think it’s just that. The processor in the Roku 3 is much quicker (according to CNET). Also the Roku 3 has an audio jack in the remote for private listening. Lastly the Roku 3 has a motion sensor remote which makes it awesome for gaming.
Yeah, but the processor in the new 2 is apparently the same as the 3. The only difference now is the remote, pretty much. And, apparently, the remote is now IR, and not wifi.
Honestly, if they had been selling this model when I was bought my 3, I would have saved the cash and gotten the 2, since the motion sensor remote and headphone jack is worthless to me. And my 3 has been the best $90 I’ve spent.
I got one from woot. Been working fine so far. But as far as the “fast” part goes, don’t seen any improvements. I do like the headphone jack in the remote and the ability to use the 5ghz wifi channel. But I don’t see faster responses and though I didn’t expect it, it doesn’t connect to my media boxes and stream any faster. But I now have five and 2 are the 1st gen top end models.
SHOULD HAVE LISTENED!!! Refurb ROKU not working
I had talked my wife into getting this and canceling the evil that is known as Dish and now Roku doesn’t work. WHYYYYYYYYYY?
