sog35 said:Why the AppleTV is worth the extra costs:
1. Roku has ads on the home screen. Pathetic. And expect more and more ads on the Roku UI. The CEO of Roku said the future of Roku is ads:
"We have ads on the home screen, and it’s a great place to influence what content viewers watch. So we monetize that." Roku CEO
2. On board memory. 32 GB vs 4 GB on Roku.
3. Much faster CPU
4. Much faster GPU
5. Free 4k upgrades
6. Much better UI
7. Much better Apps and App support
Trying to save a few pennies a day to use a clearly inferior product seems ridiculous to me.
Especially if you spent THOUSAND of dollars on your display and sound system.
Didn't Samsung have documentation saying they needed to copy the iPhone in order to compete? So if you infringe on design patents to make your product look and act like an Apple iPhone then it should involve the entire product. The only thing Samsung has done on its own is design their phones to catch fire and explode.
