    Works great

    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.

    Too big

    I bought two of these. I liked the features but, when looking for a place to install them, I realized they were too big to fit behind the TV. Since the TVs were on the wall, it would have meant that these would have been on the floor as there is no table or cabinet below the TVs. So these were returned and just used regular Fire Sticks.

    Great for simple home theater setups

    The FireTV Cube is an excellent streaming device with the added ability to control basic functions like power, volume, and input switching. Sadly at this time it only works with select cable providers, and is unable to do channel changing with my Tivo cable box (not a retail unit, leased from cable company). Otherwise I recommend it for those looking for a quick way to control simple options.

    The unit was designed to work with a TV and an app on a smartphone. It does both very well. I can ask Alexa to change inputs on my TV to different HDMI and it performs the task precisely. I can speak to the unit and ask for a variety of answers and it will respond and tell you if it cannot. I have applied a rhyming skill game and Jeopardy and they both are fun to play.

    Best version of Fire-TV

    We had a first gen Fire Stick that would always over heat and start having errors, and the living room was the only room to not have an Echo device...this solved both problems. Set up was quick and easy, it controls our TV and tried to control our 5.1 system but never could but given the fact that it is a 10 year old system, not surprised and can't hold it against the cube.

    Bought this to replace my dated Amazon Fire TV. Its pretty good but I'm not sure why they replaced the Ethernet input and used an adapter instead. The adapter acts as a bottleneck and minimizes the speed of my internet to the device. I switched it to Wifi and now its running faster than being hardwired to my modem. Pretty disappointed.

    I really love the fact that I'm able to side load apps onto this device. We cut the cord about 8 years ago and had only Netflix for awhile. This device gives us many options on shows to watch. It also gives us the ability to stream live TV as well. Just a month savings on your cable bill can pay for this! Well worth the money! Cut the Cord!!!

    Nice combination of Fire TV and Alexa

    I have enjoyed my Fire TV for awhile and have a couple of Alexa devices so when I got my new Samsung QLED TV I decided to give this a shot. It works really well. It's nice to walk in the room and tell Alexa what I want to watch and have it power up the TV and select what I want to watch. Performance is excellent and the image quality is awesome. Recommended.

    We got this for Christmas, set it up right away and it's been one of the best things ever. Set up was really easy, using it is very easy and convenient and it makes TV watching easier in every way. We don't know how we could live without the Fire Cube now. Between Amazon programming, Netflix and tons of other apps, it has totally changed how we enjoy our TV.

    I started with the first generation Fire Stick & have owned them all to this point. I have absolutely no complaints, the "Fire" products have allowed me to cut the cord & save TONS of money as a result. I have no issues with buffering or any other performance related issues. Great product & got it at a great price...I highly recommend it.

    The Fire Cube was easy to plug in and start using right away. The guided setup was a breeze, and even easier if you have your Amazon account info handy for input. Voice commands are easy through the cube and the remote too. However, learning the right commands/phrases to get Alexa to do what you want is tricky. Great product!

    This is fast and works pretty well to control my other devices. However, I wish they would update it to allow me to turn on my tv and switch source to my cable tv. Right now it will turn on my tv and go to the fire tv. So if you want to watch cable you have to use the remote etc. Otherwise it works well and also includes the dongle for the wired Ethernet cable.

    Alexa in your home teleivision. Outstanding... Alexa takes orders for you on you Amazon prime account and will also let you know when it will arrive and will be delivered when asked. She also has great controls on cable and easy controlling on and off and volume. I bought three. Great gift ideas and one was for myself.

    look up the reviews for the cooking skills and they are garbage ! 2 hours on the phone with amazon and it never got fixed . commercial makes it look like it works but she cant even find one recipe. honestly they should take that commercial down period until they fix the all recipes app/skill! everything else seems to work with the device .

    This is great for getting your home entertainment system setup. The IR blasters make it easy to control your equipment. The Alexa voice commands work well. Alexa isn't quite as good as Google Assistant at understanding you, but the FireTV Cube is vastly superior to google in controlling devices and accessing your various entertainment options.

    The Amazon Fire Cube is a very good streaming device -- I think the Roku's interface is a better and easier to use but the Fire Cube's looks really pretty. The Cube is a GREAT VOICE REMOTE. It works with the TV and my cable box. Its responsive and easy to use. Set up could be easier but wasn't impossible. Recommended!

    ...just the remote...gives you some other nice features but too pricey to warrant a higher rating. Google home hub works better for us, to be honest. I am not unhappy with it and need to explore how well it integrates with NEST to perhaps show the camera view on my TV??? IF it does I would recommend it. =)

    I’m still getting to learn about how to use this and what all it does, but I’m finding Sling gets stuck and buffers when using the HDMI input I connected this to vs. using my smart tv remote and going directly into Sling. A lil annoyed, but still researching as this is new to me. The voice commands are convenient.

    Fire cube installation was simple. Enjoy the ability to ask Alexa for information on various subjects. Sometimes she gives a wron response but overall she does well. Cube does not work with my steaming provider for my television streaming package. This was a disappointment. Enjoy all other programming offered .
