i presume you're wanting to take advantage of the half price deal correct? I've been contemplating this as well since I also have a Roku 3 which has performed nicely. Am curious if you have a 4K TV as well as a home theater system that supports the latest Video formats and audio. I posted a thread on the AVR forum and most say there's little advantage in upgrading unless the home theater equipment is up on par with my LG OLED TV

Jon, I wouldn't say there's no point in upgrading. But for full 4K support the Roku has to be connected either to an AVR with HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 ports, or else connect it directly to the TV. Running through a HDMI 1.4 receiver will limit you to 4K/30 and no HDR, and maybe even 1080. In my opinion, it's the HDR that really makes 4K shine. Otherwise, you need at least a 75" screen to see much with 4K over 1080.
