Are there any tricks to getting one? I keep getting to the page (logged in) within SECONDS and checking out, but all I have gotten every time is the antechamber of doom. I've now tried on google chrome, IE, and Firefox... any advice?

This is an amazing deal for the best streaming media player in the world. The USB 3.0 port and headphone jack make this thing so worthwhile.

I ditched the HTPC I built years ago for this and a 1.0 TB portable HD full of music and movies. Never looking back.

I thought maybe it was me. I was trying to add something else to my cart and it isn't working. I notice the black number on the cart isn't showing, either, when I go to add something.

Added to cart. Should I do it? I have Roku 2 XS and older Roku XR(which was retired for the 2 XS for closed captioning on Netflix). I have a great TV on the way. Shiny new(to me) Roku for the shiny new TV?

Edit: OK. I did it. Have one on the way.

Just going to repost the comparison chart that wizwor posted on another recent Roku sale - I found it immensely helpful in determining which model would best suit my needs.

Can you play stuff from a browser on the Roku 3, like you can Chromecast? ... I am between the two for an XMAS present ... I just have a feeling chromecast will be better in the long run?

Haven't purchased a refurb from woot! before, is there any way to tell if this comes with original packaging?

Every refurb I have gotten came in a plain box.... I think I saw a picture of the Roku 2 refurb on Newegg a few weeks ago and it showed a plain box :/ ... feel weird giving an XMAS gift as a refurb? or is it okay?

It should be listed at the bottom of the main page/sale:
90 Day Roku

Edit: I see that you see that now.

I still can't add any item on Woot to my cart tonight. Buttons are broken. I can't click and see different images either.

Wish I had waited a couple of weeks - bought the Roku 3 new on Black Friday weekend for $80. I already own a Roku XD, XDS, and HD. All have been good. The 3 has a much nicer Netflix interface than the others, and it allows access to Netflix Kids, which is great because it doesn't display images for R-rated movies and horror flicks. I would jump at this if I hadn't already bought one.

Does this model support Redbox Instant (streaming)? Thanks!

Comparing chromecast to a roku 3 is like comparing a 1977 Ford Pinto to a 2013 Tesla.

Roku is better than chromecast in every regard expect a dedicated youtube app.

This is an incredible deal.

lol, no.

Like all the other pro sports leagues they require you to pay for a yearly subscription to their gameday package much like NBA League Pass or MLB.tv

Although there are thousands of bootleg channels. I don't think it'd be real difficult to find a pirate channel of the games you wish to see if you look hard enough.

So - I bit on the HD Homerun 3x tuner on tech.woot Tuesday...

Will this unit be a good client and talk directly to my (soon to be) Windoze Media Center box (that records from the HDHR3)?

Will it talk do the HDHR3 for live TV?

TIA

Please try using another browser besides Internet Explorer 8/IE8.

It appears that some users are experiencing issues with it.

I was not using IE. I was using Firefox (v25) on Windows 7. I tried Chrome (v31) and it worked.

I hate to sound like a newb, but how do I know if the TVs in my house are HD, since this an HDtv only item? I looked online, but didn't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. Thanks.

Pretty much any LCD"flat panel" T.V. is gonna be an HDTV. You're older style T.V.s with a picture tube will not work with this unit.

I'm in! I've been waiting for the refurbs. I've bought 4 over the years, from HD-XR on, flawless. All the others are still working and have been re-gifted. Looking forward to the headphone jack in the 3, remote control. Bonus is that when you register it with the same user info, Roku automatically adds the channels you've had on other boxes - at least they have on all my previous boxes.

I used a Mac running Chrome to order, and no problems with the cart.

So... My understanding is that I wouldn't need this thing if I already had or planned to obtain XBox One. But if I don't have Xbox One (or didn't plan to get it) this would be a good media streaming device to have for TV. Is that about right?
