Rated 2 out of 5 by rdm4958 from Good streaming; remote batteries last < 2 months I bought this device at the end of June 2021 and the batteries needed to be replaced in early August 2021. I use the remote normally with minimal use of the voice function or other battery-draining functions. I had a similar issue with my Stick+ models, but the battery drain is slightly less on the Ultra. Roku did offer to replace the remote, but this is the fourth new remote I've purchased in 2 years and all of them drain the batteries very quickly. After having Roku products for over 10 years, I am switching to another brand of devices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Donnie from 4660RW I have an older model Ultra and have had no problems with it. It would seem that the majority of problems reported are use fault. There are a bunch of types of HDMI cables, so just because it says it is for 4K doesn't mean it supports all the features that can be used through the HDMI cable. If you buy a low priced cable that says it is for 4K, make sure it supports 2-way communication. I have a mid range priced cable from a well known manufacturer and have 0 problems using it with my Roku. Even when I was using Wi-Fi, I had no problems because I have a good router (even if it is old) and the Roku is within its range. You need to make sure even though the Roku has a long range that your Wi-Fi actually is broadcasting a strong enough far enough to use it. If your signal is only broadcast 50' and the Roku is 75' away, it won't work right, but only because of your Wi-Fi, not because of the Roku.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Stuntmanjoe from Disappointing Network Performance It is unacceptable that the Roku Ultra 4800X (2020) firstly has only a 10/100 Fast Ethernet port instead of the 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet port that has been out for years (1999) and they tout a wireless 802.11AC Dual-Band MIMO which would of been great except it is woefully horrible only reaching (110Mbps), this is just 1/4 of the speeds the wireless 802.11ac standard (433Mbps - 1300Mbps). Now playing devil’s advocate 1080p only needs 5Mbps and 4K needs 25Mbps, so 90 to 100Mbps should be plenty, but why limit it to wireless N speeds when you tout wireless AC speeds....keeping costs/price down maybe, but if so then just stick with wireless N (up to 300Mbps) which could still reach more than the 110Mbps it gets now. You say it is a Roku ULTRA but it is really just stretching old technology instead of innovating or improving on your cheaper models, or being competitive. The overall Roku experience is excellent, but when they come out with new products/models in the future I hope they check that it meets the hardware specifications they are stating their devices have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amrcnninja from Ultra amazing What I find funny. Is I see a bunch of people complaining. 1 says he has issues with HDMI cable. A few others mention issues. But I personally own 6 of these and have not had an issue in the last year+. I WOULD highly recommend using the cables provided in the box and not trying to use another HDMI cable.. if you are not using their cables. That COULD cause you an issue.. I made that mistake on my first Roku.. Otherwise I would HIGHLY recommend this device especially if you are someone like me and sometimes misplace your remotes. My only question for Roku is what is the brand of headphones they use. I would love to buy extra of them. Love to volume boost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrGeff from You Won't Be Disappointed We cut our cable by putting the Ultra in our master bedroom and the Streambar Pro in the living room. The Ultra is a great product and the private listening lets me watch my shows without disturbing my spouse.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Two duds in a row, I'm out. I've been using Roku devices exclusively for many years, and I've never had the slightest problem with one before recently. A few months ago, I purchased a Roku Ultra (my first) for the 4K TV in my living room. After three months of light use, all programs streamed through it, from any app/service, began experiencing periodic dropouts--every few minutes, the screen would go blank for 5-10 seconds while the audio continued to play normally. After thorough testing of different receiver channels, different HDMI (4K and 8K) cables, and other Roku units I already owned, it became clear that the fault was in the Roku Ultra itself. I'd already discarded the unit's packaging, so I bit the bullet and ordered another Roku Ultra. The new unit gave me fits while trying to get it up and running--immediately after a required update and restart, it kept freezing up, restarting itself, giving error messages, etc. This went on for an hour, and I finally gave up, disconnected everything, and packaged the unit back up for returning. A couple of hours later, I decided to give it one more chance. This time, everything went exactly as it should have to begin with, no problems at all. I stupidly discarded the product packaging (I hate clutter), thinking everything would be fine. The odds of getting two faulty units in a row would surely be astronomical, right? Well, last night, after less than two weeks of proper functionality, I discovered that all programs (SD/HD/UHD) from all services were encountering constant frame stutter/skipping at intervals of 5-10 seconds. I reset the unit several times, tried other receiver channels, other 4K/8K HDMI cables, and other Roku units, and once again the problem came down to the Roku Ultra. My only guess is that Roku has cut production corners drastically in the manufacture of their latest models, or at least for the Ultra. Whatever the case, this appalling lack of quality control is a dealbreaker. As of today, I've switched to the Nvidia Shield, and I'll never buy another Roku product again.
