      For context, I've owned the FireTV 1, FireTV Stick and own several FireTV Stick 2's. I had recently sold my FireTV 1 expecting this to be a suitable replacement because of it's small footprint and ability to plug into the back of my 4K tv without the use of a plug. My FireTV 1 was awesome and was perfectly happy with it. I have made a mistake. I have 2 AppleTV 4K's and let's just say, it's a night and day difference over the very good Apple TV 4. This is not the case with the Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD. The menus don't show the extra definition or pixels to differenciate itself vs the non 4K version. Apple made the decision to run in HDR mode in the menus and apps and it pays of in spades. Non 4K streaming apps benefit from this. It's a fantastic 4K experience. Honestly, I don't see a huge difference in speed compared to the FireStick 2. The video quality of 4K on Amazon content had a lot of artifacting compared to my native Amazon app on my LG OLED TV. I would be happy if it provided better video quality / processing on my other non 4K apps and especially menus, but I don't really see a difference. With the AppleTV 4K, EVERYTHING looks better, it's faster and makes my 4K tvs pop. Best example is my inexpensive 40" Samsung 6300 series. I didn't think it wold be worth buying a second Apple TV 4K for it. I plugged in the ATV 4K to it and couldn't believe the difference, even on the menus, icons and how it handles 4K color. I have factory reset this thing 3 times / then trying it again trying to justify keeping it and I just can't do it. This seems like a half-baked product at best. I don't know if Amazon asked it's developers for larger images for menu art like Apple did. If you're not really up on what 4K should look like or HDR, you may think its great. Compare it to an AppleTV 4K or your native 4K smart tv app quality and you'll likely find that you may want to wait for the next one or just pick up and much cheaper FireTV Stick 2 that is a fantastic product.

      using with remote slingbox blows chromecast away

      my goal was to cut the cord and view my remote dvr via slingbox. having done this for 20 years with all flavor of the slingbox, I am trying all flavors of firetv, roku sticks and chromecast. trh fire tv 4k not only works ok, but using the nbcsn and foxsportgo apps there are several PIP options allowing viewing 2 side by side or embedded programs from fox. thus could watch 2 fifa soccer feeds at once or mix and match with nascar or golf. Back to the slingbox theme, the firetv controls are a little different that running a slinbox app on an android or desktop or ipad, but response times delay seems shorter and navigation is reasonable. There can be annoying messages about HD quality (good better best) that you can suppress. Right now the competition does not even run. Don't even consider Chromecast. If the ipad sling app sees a chromecast device (4k or reg) on the network, when selected they fail with an "unable to stream" error. the 4k chromecast touts a wired feature that you can only setup wirelessly. By chance, days later, I plugged in the ethernet and I did see the 4k device show up, but the sling apps still cannot cast to it. For giggles I had an old chromecast audio and a pair of unused BOSe speakers that I hooked up. That effort was equally disappointing, perhaps I u use a particular music app that is enabled specifically for the google device It might work. As a former software person, google should stick to its advertising knitting instead of having apologies on its website about "we're looking into this..we know if fails" I may still be able to return the stuff, but google has just discounted by another $10, by the end of the summer google chromecasts will be free, and they do work to cast desktop youtube to tv, proprietary stuff, just nothing open. Perhaps after testing , I will get into other firetv features like voice. It is notable that if u ask alexa "what's on my shopping list" it will display on the tv.

      This is a bad replacement for the old version of FireTV and is more of an upgraded version of the Fire Stick. I’ve been a big fan of all other forms of the Fire TV family, I have a first generation FireStick, 2 second generation FireSticks, and a FireTV2. That’s why I preordered and was excited for the first updated FireTV in two years. Needless to say this was a huge disappointment and marketed completely wrong by Amazon. As an “upgraded” version of the FireTV, this device fails in almost every way possible... Internal components - FAIL External option features - FAIL OS6 Firware - FAIL (not ready for initial release) Amazon removed the built in ethernet attachment and instead makes you purchase an ethernet accessory dongle if you want the option to hard wire the internet. They removed the microSD slot, removing the possibility of expanding the memory for additional apps, games, or playing digital content that you already own. They also removed the USB option for a keyboard, mouse, or hard drive. Looking at the specs the processor is actually slower, and the 4k capability is only SLIGHTLY improved over the FireTV2. After two years of design the only display difference was to upgrade 4k from 30fps to 60fps. The older version feels faster and loads videos and apps quicker than this device also. The OS6 is still glitchy and had trouble loading your apps on the homepage and the 'My Apps" page. I'm sure the OS will receive updates to fix these issues, but should have been done before the release. Yes the price is cheaper than the old version, but you are definitely purchasing a lesser product. As I said, if you are looking for an improved FireStick, this is an upgrade.

      Not a good experience for me

      I got the Fire TV because the "Hulu with Live TV" guide didn't show up on my new Roku Ultra. Well, the Hulu guide does work on the Fire TV, however, the local TV channels (local TV network affiliates) didn't stream properly on the Fire TV. I found that across the board, for every streaming internet TV service that I tried that had local TV stations, none of those local stations worked right. Right now, I'm subscribed to Playstation Vue, and the local TV station on that, a CBS affiliate, stutters frequently, which causes the DVR controls to show up. Very distracting, makes the channel useless to me. I assumed that this sort of problem was the streaming internet TV services fault, naturally. There's lots of Fire TV streamers out there so this problem should have shown up in the Fire TV reviews if it was a Fire TV problem. I finally got worn down by all the adware on the Fire TV, and went back to the Roku Ultra. And what do you know, I found that with the Roku, the local TV stations on the streaming TV providers worked smoothly, as they should. Don't know why, maybe the Roku provides a enough buffering on the live local stations, and the Fire TV doesn't. Anyways, glad that I went back to the Roku, since now things work right, except no guide on Hulu, of course. And, in addition to working as it should with streaming internet TV, the Roku provides ethernet and USB ports. These ports are extras, but useful ones. As a result of my experiences, I cannot recommend this product. Avoid it.

      I was renting a room in a house with no cable (because the owner claimed you couldn’t trust the mainstream media because they wanted to tell you how to think. However, owner was constantly watching Info Wars and televangelists). The ability to use Direct TV Now on this device was a Godsend because one does not live on Netflix alone. Seriously, this is ridiculously easy to set up and use. The only issue I’ve had was with Direct TV.Now: they upgraded their service and on the Fire TV; broadcast channels were missing and the local channel feed was from San Francisco (I don’t live there). I don’t know if it’s been fixed as yet (Direct TV was apologetic. Amazon’s attitude was “yeah, we know. Talk to your provider”). I would recommend this device, but Amazon now has the Fire Cube and that integrates with your Echo smart speaker (“Alexa, put on Orioles baseball.” “I’m sorry I can’t do that, Dave. It would violate Asimov’s Law of Robotics as it would lead to self-harm”). This device, the Fire TV has voice command, is suitable for the newest versions of HD TVs, and won’t lead your kitchen appliances in an uprising against the humans.

      Does not play well with HDR

      I have two ROKU 4K boxes...which have had their issues...so I was excited to get my new Fire TV with 4K/HDR capability. well....I will be taking this box back. As you know, there is really no tech support for Amazon products other than their help page which really is just hints and tips.. no forum, no tech support phone number. SO..here is what I experienced...I have two 4K/HDR TV's.. one Samsung and a brand new Sony. On the Samsung, the HDR brightness was turned on 100% of the time, no matter what content I was playing...Amazon Video, Netflix etc. as a result, the picture on NON-HDR content looked washed out and over-bright. On the Sony, the HDR brightness was off when watching the intro or menu screen. BUT..when I actually watched a 4K or 4K/HDR movie on either Amazon or Netflix...the picture would look great fo about 2 seconds, the HDR brightness would turn off and the picture would be very dim. THE HDR brightness signal going to the TV comes from the video source... both my ROKU Ultimate and ROKU 4 have no issues telling the TV's when to turn the brightness up or down. SO...I am staying with ROKU for now... By the way..the Fire TV integrated well with Alexa and I could control the Amazon programming with just voice, but had to use a combination of voice and remote when viewing Netflix. So, if you have a NON-HDR TV...the Fire TV probably works fine and is a good buy for $70

      Expected a lot more for a current gen device

      Never had a Fire Stick and with all the rave reviews I thought jumping into the FireTV arena with this new device would be a no-brainer. Clean interface. However it is super laggy, and pretty slow for a current gen premium-priced device. The OS does not feel snappy or responsive. Out of the box the device required a firmware update that took longer than expected even though I have near gigabit internet speeds. This was to replace/complement the built-in Roku in my smart TV. Even though the Roku is over a year old, it is still faster than this device. Also not having an ethernet port to hardwire is a big negative. It is a small compact size, and the remote is ergonomic and user friendly. The software UI is very much about keeping you within Amazon's ecosystem with ads plastered for its programs/products all over the home screen. The Alexa voice remote works fine, but was very limited (I tried to have it set a timer and it told me it wasn't supported on this device)

      This Fire TV 4K streamer is a no-brainer for those accessing Amazon content. And since you can usually find it on sale, it's a steal to boot. I now have several streaming boxes, and all of them are equals in absolute picture quality: the nVidia Shield, Apple TV 4K, and the Fire TV. Each has specific features the others don't. The nVidia does all the 4K protocols and extensive gaming, Apple offers support and direct access to iTunes video purchases, and Fire TV has Alexa and is by far the cheaper of the three. My major quibble is with the lack of a YouTube app. The "app" that is offered for that purpose simply invokes a browser which surfs the user to YouTube. Of course, there is no app for the YouTube TV Live OTT streaming service, either. That is a problem for me as well since I am a YouTube TV subscriber. The YouTubeTV app works perfectly on nVidia Shield and Apple TV, and I love the simple user interface on those apps. It is the best I've seen on any OTT service. I almost docked the Fire TV a star for the Amazon shunning of YouTube apps. The extensive Alexa support, however, even though it is biased toward Amazon offerings, the video performance and the pricing, demand a fifth star.
