    Roku 2 or 3

    Simply, doesanyone know whether you get a better picture with the Roku three over the Roku two? Specifically I'm talking about viewing Amazon prime which I believe is on both.

    I think the PQ should be the same on them, but I'm not positive.

    see link here.. New Roku 2 vs new Roku 3: What's the difference? (Hint - it's the remote) - Pocket-lint

    from pocket-lint.com
    "The new Roku 2 allegedly matches the speed and performance of the new Roku 3; it just doesn't have an enhanced remote, but you can use the Roku smartphone app to get access to similar voice search functionality. If price is a concern, we'd recommend going with the cheaper Roku 2.If you're more into ease of use, or even in gaming, we'd recommend the new Roku 3. It has remote with a dedicated voice search button and motion control for gaming, all of which might be worth the extra $30."
