I have 2 boxes, a roku 2HD and a roku 3. The 2 is over a year old, absolutely no problem and I keep it in the bedroom. The 3 is about 6 months old and has not given me any headaches. I believe there have been some glitches but Roku issues patches and updates to take care of your box. The upgrades usually run in the background, you never know it happens. They also provide skins that fit the occasion, think halloween, valentines and christmas, also without the need for you to intervene.
