Default Roku Netflix player

All I can say is HELL YES.. I saw it announced Monday morning, the second it hit the market, saw the price and immediately ordered it. $100.. I've been using my computers to do the streaming netflix movies for about a year now. Well my Roku arrived today. I've already watched 3 movies with it. Video quality is outstanding on my standard def TV. Very easy to use. Love it!

Seems convenient but I'd rather put $100 towards an HTPC. Does it only stream netflix content or can you stream things over the network also? Is there a limit to how much you watch?

This thing is half the size of a Mac Mini.. A $200 HTPC isn't going to be that small.
It only does Netflix. Kind of a case of KISS.. Keep it Simple Stupid.. Try to be a little of everything and it's just too hard to use.
No limit, you can stream non-stop..

Very nice then I'm cheap so I'll stick to bit torrent and bulky loud PCs though
