I learned that Roku TVs all get updated directly from Roku regardless of who makes the equipment. Good news for people that have been stuck with outdated interfaces on other smart TV platforms.
So far I've setup multiple Roku devices. A 3100C, 4630X, Insignia TV w/built-in Roku 5302X, TCL w/built-in Roku 7120X, TCL w/built-in Roku C107X
Wherever possible I prefer to hard wire the Rokus vs relying on wifi. In two instances I'm successfully using TPLink Powerline adapters to hardwire the Roku devices.
