I'm new to this.
Is there any real benefit to paying the extra $'s for a Roku 3?
I have a roku3 myself. It's much, much faster. The roku2 is fine, but it can lag moving around menus etc. The roku3 is positively snappy.
It also has a much nicer user interface, but the roku2s will be getting the new UI this month so that's not an advantage for long.
Oh, and it costs almost twice as much, so the value proposition is very different, but it's only a $45 difference so you may not care.
