The Roku 2 works well, but lacks the unique features of its predecessor, or the Roku 3. If you just want a Netflix, YouTube and catch-up TV box then you won’t be disappointed. If you want more, then try the Roku 3 or Amazon Fire TV instead.
The Roku 2 is yet another decent media streaming box from the market leader and we like the new Roku Search and MyFeed features. However, these are available on the other Rokus and the slightly high price means you'll want to pay the extra for the better remote which comes with the Roku 3 or save money by getting the similar Streaming Stick.
