Great for Kids and Grandparents.
I initially gave the Roku 3 as a Christmas present to our parents as a way for them to watch movies (Netflix) on their non-smart TV. I was surprised at how easy it was to setup and use. The pre-installed apps were already a great fit for kids (Happy Kids App). The Happy Kids App has a ton of kids music videos (wheels on the bus, itsy bitsy spider, etc). There are also a ton of free kids apps too that are easy to use (PBS kids app; has a lot of free tv episodes and seasons). Kids apps on other devices do not compare to the available content on the Roku 3. The parents watched the entire seasons 1-5 of Downton Abbey. Even on their slow Wifi the picture quality stayed in HD without any pauses for loading. I have a smart tv at home with apps, but they do not work as fast as the apps on the Roku. I'm thinking about buying a Roku 3 for kids to watch when their not at their grandparents house. Netflix menu looks way better on a Roku 3. We also plugged in a USB hard drive and were able to watch movies, although some movie formats didn't work (MKV, Avi) on the free movie player. There is a paid app that will play those formats.

Great gift for young adult. Love the earbud jack for individual listening use and portability. Will use instead of XBox streaming.
