Love the built in Roku as well for streaming
I like having the ROKU built in
By comparison this device has almost more of an artificial hdr feel with the oddly robust modification settings for the image output even in hdr mode
As we don't have an external arial having Freeview Play built in was a pleasing surprise
Remote feels fragile
the power cord was broken where it plugs into the TV
If the TV is situated in an area where there will be no chance of damage you will be fine or take out some insurance
