Roku 4

Beware of the new Roku 4 that has just came out. My Roku 4 got so hot that it melted and caught on fire. It melted like a hersey kisses chocolate. I contacted Roku regarding the problem and sent them a picture of the unit. They replaced my Roku with a new one. The only problem is that it ruined my 4K flat screen tv when the Roku caught on fire. I had my Roku on my tv stand under my flat screen tv. When I told Roku customer service that is from India about my destroyed tv they didn't know what to do. When they first requested that I mail them the melted Roku 4 device, I told them that there was not much left to mail them back because it melted into burnt plastic. I suspect that they want their melted device back so there is no evidence if I decided to file a law suit against them. Good thing that I walked into my bedroom just in the nick of time. It would had been worse situation if I didn't have one of those small kitchin fire estinguishers to put the fire out. It's good when viewing movies and stuff provided that it does not burn your house down while your away from home. There is no turn off button on the unit to power it off. I unplug it now whenever I leave the house. But I'm not happy about my damaged tv. I want to put in a claim with my insurance, but then I will have to meet up with a $1000 deductable and my insurance may go up as well if I file a claim. I told the Roku Indian representative that if the media found out that the Roku 4 is catching on fire in peoples homes, that every store in the country would pull it from their shelves. All that he could say is sorry. Buyer beware !
