Anybody know what the differences are between this Costco model (4660X-BDL1) and the latest model with the JBL headphones (4661R)?

I guess...if you're an immoral person then this certainly a benefit.

Maybe you should read this though: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tra...he_commons

Functionally no difference other than that ear bugs. There is a youtube video with side-by-side comparison. You may also get the 4661 model at Target through Google Express at $59.99 if you have link your account and not used the 30%/$20 off code yet. Not as hot as the $49.99 price during the holidays at multiple vendors.

I like the product. Ended up with two during Black Friday and sold one on CL for $80 because I decided just to roll with one for now knowing that this technology is turned over quite quickly along with price drops. Kind of like tv's. $70 is decent for a here and now need.

I picked one up for $49 last Black Friday, along with an AppleTV 4K. Be aware that if you have a Dolby Vision television, this roku can only provide up to HDR10, which is a tiny step down from Dolby Vision in my opinion. Like I said, I have both set up on my television, but the AppleTV gets all the attention for that reason.

$70 is a good deal on these. Been watching Rokus awhile and the only time I've seen them cheaper is around BF when they were $50. Dropped our $250 a month Directv for Roku players and streaming services ($95) so they pay for themselves very quickly.

We have 3 Roku Streaming Sticks (for 1080p TVs) and 3 Ultras. The Ultras are noticeably faster in all areas (UI, remote responsiveness, loading). Ultras are hard-wired (10/100 only) but the sticks connect at 170+ mbps over AC. Don't plan on using the headphones but it's a nice feature.

There's a lot of free content but I use Directv Now, VUDU (movies anywhere) and Youtube (not to be confused with Youtube TV, different apps). The built-in media player streams from our home NAS as well. It even down-converts my 4k content to 1080p TVs (the Ultra models). Roku has no horse in the race like Amazon does, so you get all apps and a UI that doesn't shove Prime down your face. I say this as 9-year Prime member too.

I'm surprised at this comment. I have the older Ultra, from 2016, the 4640X and it is soooo slowwwww, especially with the DirecTVNow app. My friend's Apple TV brings up the guide and changes channels so much quicker. I recently picked up a FireStick 4K and that blows my older Ultra out of the water too.

I also read in this thread about someone having the remote seemingly drain the batteries in a couple of days and I noticed mine doing that too. I called customer support, and they're willing to send me the 4660 and have me "trade-in" my 4640 at no cost to me...I thought that was a pretty sweet deal. So I should have my 4660 in 3-5 business days! That's pretty good customer service, even if it is a refurb that they're sending me, seeing that the only difference between the 4660 and 4661 is the earbuds, right?

Yeah there is no technical difference between the 4660 and 4661. I noticed my Ultras had 2 different model numbers. The one on the box says 4661R but on the unit itself it says 4660X2. We had a streaming stick hooked up to one TV for a week on wifi and then I put the Ultra on the same TV on wired and noticed improved performance. Sometimes the stick wouldn't get a remote input but it was rare. I tried to trip up the Ultra the same way, couldn't do it.
