I'm not buying it because coming from Hong Kong at half the price and from a newly launched Amazon seller I just don't trust that this would be an original. But if you want to take the chance and it turns out to be the real deal, it is an amazing price.

I have the roku 2. The only bad thing I can think of is the remote is very sensitive, meaning the remote doesn't work unless you point it directly at the roku box.

Ships from Hong Kong. Why the heck the folks in Hong Kong have a roku 2 for sale is beyond me but good luck to anyone buying this.

You just named the exact reason I decided not to get that a couple days ago. I was pondering upgrading my roku 2 xs, and after looking at both the roku 2 and 3, I decided I very much want the remote I have now, and it won't work with either of them. Roku 2's remote you have to point directly at the box. Roku 3 doesn't have the instant replay button. Hopefully Roku will come out with a box that has the faster processor and a remote I want.

The latest Roku stick (3600R) and previous Roku 3 (4200R) still have the rewind button and both surpass the Roku 2 XS in performance.

Why post this, knowing that it's likely a scam? The seller has no previous sales and shipping from Hong Kong.

Couldn't get the previous Roku 3 on google express, which is where I have both a $40 coupon that cost $7.35 and a $15 back on $30 if I use Amex. I had bought the stick months ago and it didn't work, so I just got a refund and decided to go with a box.

Looking at what's available to me on Google Express, it looks like the only roku stick they have in my area is the 3500R. I can't remember from when I had my stick briefly, but is that a point anywhere remote?

Because I'm not anybody's conscience. I presented the deal and facts, including why I wouldn't buy it. It's up to the slickdealer to take the chance. Besides, Amazon has such great customer service that it lessens the risk somewhat.
