Budget digital media player
For those on a budget, the Roku LT presents one of the best ways -- and certainly one of the most economical ways -- to get streaming content from the Internet to your living room TV. The big thing you give up compared to the Roku 2 XS is resolution as only 720p is supported. However, reports say that when watching streaming video on most TVs, the majority of users won't see a big difference. You can also forget about playing Angry Birds as the Bluetooth link needed by the Roku motion controller is not supported. Also missing are an Ethernet port for hard-wiring to your computer network (the Roku LT is Wi-Fi only), a microSD slot for adding more memory and a USB port for playing your own files. But, just like the pricier Roku players, you have more than 400 channels of content to choose from and set up and use are easy.
