Roku 2

It's been a while since Roku last updated its set-top Internet streaming box, and that means its sequel will need to be just that much better than its predecessor. The Roku 2 ($60-$100) more or less lives up to the task. Available in three separate Wi-Fi-connecting models — the HD, XD, and XS — it offers features like support for Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, NBA Game Time, Pandora, Rdio, Flickr, Vimeo, and more, up to 1080p HD video output, new gaming capabilities thanks to Bluetooth for connecting the motion-control gaming remote, a microSD slot for additional game storage, and must-have casual gaming title Angry Birds pre-installed on XS units.
