I bought Roku one week ago and I am absolutely enjoying it. The picture quality is superb. However, I faced few minor problems though, most of them during installation. While I was setting up my Wi-Fi connection, it hanged in the third step (connecing to Internet) and I needed to restart it. After I restarted it, it failed to connect to my Wi-Fi at first and said that the password is wrong. I found the password to be correct and tried once more without changing any thing and it worked fine. Since then I am facing no problem with connectivity. The only problem I am having persistently is with the Picasa application. It cannot show any photo though it can show the albums with their covers showing correctly.

Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.
