Can somebody tell me why one would buy an ATV2 over a Roku LT especially since Roku has more content, does the same 720p as ATV2 and only costs $50? I have an Apple TV 2 that I only use for Netflix streaming. I don't have an iPad to make use of the AirPlay mirroring feature. I have iPhone 4, but I have heard that AirPlay with Apple TV is only limited to the 4S? In hindsight I am wondering if I would have been more happy with the Roku purchase?The Good: The Roku LT is an extremely small Wi-Fi streaming-media box that costs only $50. It offers dozens of streaming video and audio services, including Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Instant Video, HBO Go, Pandora, MOG, Rdio, and MLB.TV. It also supports older TVs using an included breakout cable.
The Bad: The Roku LT isn't a good choice for playing your personal digital media collection. There's also no Ethernet port, so you'll need a solid Wi-Fi signal in your home theater.
The Bottom Line: The Roku LT is a killer streaming-media box, offering tons of streaming video content, including favorites like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, and Pandora, for just $50.
