I was at the store, ready to pick up a soundbar when I saw it has no ethernet port. That's a deal-breaker. I've got enough stuff on my wireless - that soundbar isn't walking around anywhere! It needs a wired port. I hope the 10 cents you saved by not putting one in makes up for the $150+ sale you just lost because of it.
And while we're at it, why can't I find a remote with the headphone jack?!? Ours broke (got bent when sat on) and we need to replace it. The answer is always "use the app" - yeah, that's not a solution either. Again - stop cheaping out! I'll gladly pay another $2 or whatever to get the headphone jack.
Finally, I didn't know the soundbar didn't have the "find remote" feature - with 2 kids and a dog in the house, that's saved us more time than I can remember in the other room. This soundbar is supposed to be the top-of-the-line product, and 3 of the Roku features I use most aren't in it!
I'm really disappointed. I love Roku (I remember you're the ex-ReplayTV people... I had both the ReplayTV 1000 and 2 4000's) and have 4 of them (Rokus). I really want a soundbar. Without these features, I just can't do it. Message me when they're added - or just send it to me COD. :-)
I was going to buy a Roku Soundbar, but because of the lack of a gigabit ethernet I will not. And the separate 100mb USB dongle is not a sufficient substitute. It is very unfortunate that the product managers at Roku have somehow decided that ethernet is unnecessary, when in fact there are a lot of good reasons to use ethernet and not wireless. Reasons include greater reliability, no interference, and a desire to have less wireless transmissions in the home (many people, including my wife, are sensitive to wireless signals).
When Roku makes a Soundbar with built in gigabit (or better) ethernet, I will buy it -- unless by then I've found a better product from a competitor.
