    This is very useful if you don't already have an alexa in the house. Unfortunately I didn't realize that there was an alexa built in on this and could have saved some money. My fault lol.. Overall good product, downside is that it's not any faster than the normal 4k which is what this one states. Only reason I'm giving this 3 stars is because of speed issues. I have 300mbps and it still freezes and this cube has froze more times than the regular 4k ever did so... other than that it does everything I ask..

    This is the best thing I could do since cancelling my cable. It’s only as good as your internet connection though, so the better your internet speed the better your experience will be. I love the microphone option with the box like the Alexa speaker just connect the box to your smart TV and just say “Alexa turn on the TV” and your in business. There’s a great selection of apps you can download as well. All in all I should have bought this sooner.

    I purchased this hoping to be blown away because of the advertising from the Amazon table in the store. However, after setting it up, I found out the user interface is overloaded with advertisements and there are definitely not as many channels or apps to choose from as there are on the Roku devices, which I have 5 of those in the house. I do like the Alexa part of it, but I wish I would have bought the Roku Ultra and then the Google Mini to have on the side as that works with Roku.

    Decided to add smart home elements to my home and added the TV cube. It works great, in the areas that it works. ( turning the tv off and on, changing inputs, volume, pausing, play back, replaced my android box). Con: Voice commands do not work with most apps (for moving,scrolling, etc). Alexa has 90 percent functionality ( you can drop in from this device and a few other features). Overall is it good for most of the things we use it go but if does not completely eliminate your need for a remote.

    I had a bit of a pickle on my hands because I have 65 inch 4k tv wireless mounted on w as ll with soundbar. However I wanted to cut my cable so I bought the firestick but it would not play via the hdmi port on my modem. I dont know what made me try the fire TV cube but I'm glad I did! Works perfectly so I can stream via the fire unit without messing up my aesthetics. O also love how it interacts with my vivint so I use the fire tv cube to lock my doors etc. Getting ready to but another for the bedroom

    At first I got frustrated trying to get this to work with all my gear but eventually figured out that it was working correctly despite the apparent errors I was getting in the setup process. I now enjoy the voice control and have set it up so that I can view my Ring doorbell and also a couple Alexa-compatible security cameras, though you can only view one at a time. I can also do all the things that I can do with the other Dots I have, including controlling smart plugs.

    Recommend for Recast

    The Recast is fairly useless without this device. Recast integrated well after setting up a Fire TV Cube first. It’s the best OTA DVR set up I’ve been able to find without a monthly subscription. The HDMI connection works smoothly without the Wi-Fi hesitation or complexity that I had from several other OTA/DRV devices. The 4K picture is excellent and the remote is more user friendly than most. However the Apple TV voice control is more user-friendly and accurate for me.

    It a simple and easy to use, but have another one that I got before but the reason for buying this one is to go cable free at the house. With all the streaming services my family decided to cut the cable cord mainly because the prices were going up a lot. The reason why I say for the most part is because it doesn’t have YouTube TV app, there’s a work around and you can get it to work but it did take sometime. But all the other streaming apps work perfectly.

    Unexpected Alexa fan

    My mom is having more trouble using multiple remotes (or even multiple remote functions) to watch movies on cable and on DVD. Movies are her principal evening entertainment, as she lives alone. A Best Buy employee suggested a voice-command activation, and the Fire Cube has been perfect. With only a slight learning curve, mom is self-sufficient with her entertainment center. (And she can ask Alexa the weather!)

    No Surprises - Easy to use and easy to install

    Amazon cube is a great product as long as you don't refer to Alexa directly. If you do, she will wake up and try to do whatever you say. However, the cube is a great tool for both breaking the cable noose and accessing TONS of entertainment and information, much of it without cost. I could not recommend it more highly. Be advised: take me with a grain of salt. 1. I am not a techie. I'm too old for that. 2. I'm easily impressed. Still, this is was a great purchase.

    The old Firestick TV quit the other night after much good service. Picked up the Fire Cube and installed it last night. The supplied batteries for the remote were dead, but we have plenty of backups. The unit worked flawlessly, configuring to turn on and off both the Samsung TV monitor and the Denon AV receiver connecting everything into a system. Will be exercising it more and looking into the Alexa skills available.

    It takes a while to learn the commands to prompt Alexa, but give her time and she will be able to predict what you want to see or hear before you even know it yourself. The remote is not user friendly for the visually or tactically challenged. Alexa picks up when not expecting. "Hey Alexa" probably would have been better. The use of YouTube is impaired probably due to the politics between Google and Amazon. Work together big IT... please.

    The FireTV Cube has tons of potential, but it's really not designed for households with any other streaming device/cable than FireTV Cube. The voice commands are not as complete as the Echo or Dot, nor do the actions immediately work (or work at all sometimes) when issuing commands. Lastly, the command interface does not flow well with all the apps. Much more needs to be done to make this a day-to-day device as opposed to a novelty.

    I got this after an echo gift. I like the echo, no prblems at all. but the cube ignores you often, gets the wrong channel and then today I was watching pbs news station, and it thought it heard "reset my cube to factory settings. I couldn't find my remote fast enough, and it ignored me saying cancel, turn of the tv, and it reset me to factory. I spent an hour reseeting it up! I only paid 60 bucks on sale. I see it for 119. I wouldn't bay 20 for it.

    Second Version Got it Right

    I got one for my brother and it is really quite great. Setup is extremely quick, new remote is much better! This second edition cube is great. Replaced a harmony and AppleTV, my brother seems to be quite happy. I was a first edition adopter and am still somewhat upset they released ours without a volume button. The new remote (this version in the review) has the volume and mute button, a great touch. I hate that they'd make me buy a new remote for 30$.

    I love the that the machine can control multiple devices in the entertainment center. This is more reliable than my old harmony one remote. There are tons of apps for it. That being said I feel like you need to say what Alexa is programmed with instead of understanding what you wanted. The volume up and down on voice should have more control than up and down. Remote is ok but not near the same level as my Apple TV.

    Not sure if the one I got was simply defective or it is a chronic issue but regardless of placement, Alexa frequently failed to respond to commands. Alexa for my firecube had a melt down and just spelled out her name at one point and did not respond to commands or prompts from the included remote. Remote unsynced within hours of first use, even with brand new batteries. Returned due to the various issues mentioned above.

    I am very happy with the Fire TV cube. I do wish I could still access google play store as I do with Nvidia Shield, but I was able to side load apps anyway. I do prefer the Shield overall, but I was able to purchase the Fire TV for half the price while it was on sale for $79.99. It’s well worth the price for my second TV. I find it to be just as easy to use as my Shield.

    Works good. Seems a great deal faster than a fire stick. I use kodi and exodus primarily and it works great. I have slow internet so I do not use the 4K part so I cannot vouch for its picture. The only thing is when my internet goes out occasionally it will flash orange the whole time and I have to unplug it. Also it made me link it to my amazon account to it I could not find anyway around it.

    I wanted the cube because I had an Ethernet connection for DirectTv, which I cancelled. I have great internet service and this was a no-brainer for me. My return on investment for buying the amazon cube and ditching DirectTv will be 1 month, I already had amazon prime and purchased the Hulu app subscription without ads both my wife and I more than pleased with this decision.
