    Should I get a Roku 2 or something else? My primary use on the Roku was NetFlix and Amazon VOD. Looking at Apple TV, it does not offer Amazon VOD, will it ever? I'm thinking the new VIZIO Co-Star could be an option also. What do you fine people think I should go with next?
    Thanks

    It's hard to say. Amazon VOD was just released on the iPad so eventually it might make it to the Apple TV.

    Personally I like the Roku. It's very versatile. The VIZIO also sounds interesting.

    Roku2 XS is one of the best devices I have ever owned. There is no end to the stations that seem to be coming to this format. Many not my cup of tea but someone out there wants them. I believe it is the standard to IPTV at this time. I do have to keep on to AT&T sometimes to keep my dsl speed up to 5+ meg download but I am lucky to have that out in this rural area.

    Thanks guys, I'm thinking about getting the new Roku HD, it has everything I need. It will be going into my bedroom which has a 32" set and only 720P

    IMHO the Roku is your rock solid choice.
