It's the perfect box but hard to come by, and wish I had bought more when it was on Woot sometime last year.....
I concur. The HD|XR seemed to offer the best bang for the buck. Though $40 for an N1100 HD is a pretty good deal for basic streaming IMO.
Here's a comparison table I made last year between the specs for the legacy and the new units - before the Roku 2's were announced. Ignore the "price" column - that's clearly out of date:
(Note - Updated the link to include the new Roku 2 models)
LAST FIVE WOOTS:
04/12/13 Eye-Fi Mobile 8GB Wireless Memory Card - $35
03/01/13 Powerbag 3000mAh Charging Bag - $40
02/21/13 Canon Wireless AIO Printer - $50
02/21/13 3M HD Camcorder Projector - $80
11/10/12 Alaratec Charge-Glo 30-pin Sync Cable (x3) - $5 ea
