You can buy basic reconditioned Roku for 40 bucks on amazon last I saw. Netflix far out spends other low price streamers on content.

Thanks, and advise and feedback is very much appreciated.

Roku 3 has the earphone jack in the remote which I would use for sure. It is said to be 5 times faster, but our 2 is fast enough for us.

We have been using the Roku 2 for 16 months primarily for Netflix and Amazon. We will get a Roku 3 for the bedroom.

Here are the differences: Compare Roku Models | Roku Streaming Player

We have both. It's a bit quicker, but certainly not 5x faster or I'd replace the 2 in our living room.

The headphone jack is extremely useful in the bedroom. My wife has trouble sleeping sometimes, and she can watch whatever she wants by using the headphones and not worry about waking me.

Well, I guess I misquoted, they said "Lightning fast with 5x faster processor" which does not mean a lot at times.

Yep, I have that problem... I have a wireless headphone for the living room which worked out well.
