Re: Is there a Roku product that does NOT overheat

It seems there's only three options now:  a stick, a tiny box, or an Ultra.  Of those the Ultra is probably your best option.  I have practically every model ever made (although I've always avoided the sticks like the plague) and I've never had one overheat, but I sure do see plenty of reports here.  I don't think I've ever seen someone complain about their Ultra overheating.

I have Ultra that overheats intermitently with 3 fans directed at it while suspended vertically. On You Tube directions for opening case. There a 2 metal heat sinks that are not sufficient to cool unit. I plan to remove metal sinks or just drill through them and place as many holes in case as will fit.
