Quick take: Netflix streaming on Wii vs. Roku

I got my Netflix for Wii disc in the mail today and figured I’d put it to a quick test to see how it compares to the Roku HD Player also connected to my television. I’ve only played with it for a few minutes (I watched a few minutes of an episode of The Office). Here’s my takeaway so far:

To sum: If you’ve already got a Wii and a Netflix account, and you don’t already have something connected to stream movies, the Wii option is a fine way to go (especially because it’s free). If you’ve got room on your entertainment unit for another (small) device, and don’t mind shelling out 100 bucks to get it, and want better quality (and a bit more convenience, remote-wise) pick up a Roku player.
