Amazon Fire TV : I wasn’t disappointed. The firetv is very slick

Great product, not a lot far better then firetv adhere but for me it is always better to invest in far better, it is far more upcoming proof. It is a must have even if you have clever tv i do advise this little great machine.

Incredibly happy with my order, was obtaining difficulties with the more compact fire adhere not being ready to cope with streaming some motion pictures. A great deal quicker and trustworthy than the smaller sized firestick too. Incredibly happy with this invest in.

I appreciate the fire tv, so a lot so i have 1 in just about each and every room. I have usually paid far more for the box somewhat than the adhere as i’ve constantly employed ethernet plugs with cable. So let down that the new box doesn’t have ethernet port. I know you can acquire the adaptor but what a ache. Dimensions isn’t really anything if i was so involved about the measurement i would have bought the adhere. Really annoyed because of to buffering i have now purchased the ethernet port at an further cost of £13. This fundamentally means that the expense of the box has enhanced by this amount from the older model. The point that i have to wait around over a thirty day period for the direct tells me that heaps of people today are going through this problem. This really feels like a scam amazon.

Remote not acquiring volume command as the opposition ie roku 4k. I know amazon know people sideload google applications on their gadgets, still however they refuse to provide those people applications on amazon application keep. The possibility of not remaining able to form out my homepage and or eliminate sponsored written content is annoying.

Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD and Alexa Voice Remote (Pendant Design) | Streaming Media Player : Bought this as a stopgap as our blu ray which also did our amazon and netflix had packed up, as we never use the dvd function now we decided to just carry on with it as it is faster and more convenient than the blu ray anyway.

Great for what we needed to stream primary online video on to our 4k tv.

I am liking my new fires stick the only unfortunate factor about is getting this sort of a short hdmi cable matched with a not pretty prolonged power cable. So i have not as of however been equipped to try out the 4k resolution on my 4k set up. But all in all it is pretty straight ahead to use. The other point to bear in mind is the use of the details. We have an uncapped virgin media match package deal which signifies we get the fastest velocity but we nonetheless detect we get buffering, it could also be owing to the area of the firestick thanks to the cable being so brief. I did examine out our routers utilization and my router confirmed that my firestick employed as good deal much more details than my young children(so if you are on decrease offer and suffer capping you my get a challenging time) i might be able to edit this publish as soon as i have used one more hdmi cable and a hdmi coupler (far more cost).

This gadget is a wonderful way for access to amazon prime & netflix. Nevertheless fitting the batteries in the remote is a painasked a good friend (who his a powerful guy) to open remote he could not move it at all. Had to use a hacksaw to slash a groove, and insert a modest screw generate into gap to prise open. Would have been five stars without having this trouble.

Straightforward to put in and operates nicely. Occasional problem with not buying up wi-fi community link and this is an problem with the fire tv and my sky box hardly ever has this challenge and it is situated in the identical location. Picture high-quality is excellent and easy to navigate. Remote is basic and tbh could be substantially greater. Not confident about alexa – not experienced a great deal accomplishment employing it. Much more of a gimmick at present than one thing that is desired. General it comes recommended.

This is wonderful little gadget if you have prime as you can obtain all the great key tv. With out prime you still get access to all the other channels this kind of as netflix and ted but have to pay back for some ( netflix not ted).

I swear samsung purposely sluggish down their smarthubs just after a time period to consider and get you to purchase a new set. Hence the motive for me getting this. An endeavor to breathe additional everyday living back again into my set. The firetv is really slick, really responsive. It makes it possible for me to have upto date applications these types of as plex. All over again a further disadvantage i located with unsupported apps on the samsung eco program. I can use vpn ipvanish with this really very easily now, an additional significant moreover point. Tends to make applying applications like terrarium tv a lot safer. Only gave four star as imo the alexa integration is unbelievablely rubbish, and i use alexa a large amount to handle my hive heating and smart bulbs.

I acquired this to enhance the seem output as the samsung tv apps on my tv, netflix amazon do not allow me to listen to dolby digital ➕ by using hdmi arc. I have plugged it into the back again of an older4k passthrough av receiver and regrettably it is not up to date plenty of to make it possible for the latest 4k hdcp two. 2 to passthrough so you will need the newest products including a 4k tv or a decoder i imagine. There is a quite noticeable change in sound output, i consider it is 10 instances greater. Netflix and amazon motion pictures in five. So i have not utilised the crafted in samsung tv apps due to the fact. I like the menu process it truly is straightforward more than enough to navigate and alexa is exciting, it is effective incredibly very well. I considered we would not use it as considerably as we have. The downside i assumed was possessing to get the ethernet cable at an excess value.

Great box, uncomplicated to established up, and streets in advance of the apple counterpart.

I considered alexa could control a lot more than it can (at the very least with my tv). . Not free to air channels regulate. The programs really do not guidance nowtv and the user interface not a patch on my appletv. My fault, i need to have researched a little bit a lot more very first.

No quantity control on the remote and the solution hangs rather loosely from hdmi link on back again of tv. Utilised velcro to secure products on back of tv to steer clear of undue strain to hdmi socket.

Have the dot and now this ‘dongle’. Pretty amazed with each of these goods ,excellent that i can contact up netflix ask for the kind of movie i like to look at and suitable absent there is a display screen full of that specific style. New music pretty much quickly even youtube if required. Definitely chuffed with my order.

Brilliance in a minimal box, these a clever small invention. As easy as silk, i can watch tv in 4k, effortless to set up and use. Hundreds of movies and tv to look at if a member of prime but for £7. ninety nine a month is a steal with upcoming day delivery. Have not wrote a evaluation for 3 a long time, on the other hand could not advise highly plenty of. I would give it six stars but 5 is the max :).

I like this box of methods – works very well. This is the only way i can see true 4k written content by way of a appropriate tv. This is a high quality product or service which was effortless to set up and i favored the reality that it was pre-put in with my key account aspects prior to it was dispatched to me. Properly completed amazon, an outstanding products for a very good price and is effective perfectly straight out of the box.

I purchased this as an improve from my fire adhere 1. I use it with my projector and t he photograph excellent is pretty superior in truth. I also coupled it up to my new 4k hd pannie and went on to youtube to play some 4k hd trailers and promo clips, wow what a distinction, it is really pretty close to 3d with no the eyeglasses. Would certainly advocate as extensive as you have the other hardware to showcase it.

We have a panasonic tv which offers excellent photos but only experienced an ethernet relationship for net on desire streaming products and services. Regretably, it was situated in a spot in the household with affordable wifi protection but no adjacent ethernet outlet. This turned out to be a seriously good answer offering the tv a new lease of lifestyle at a rather low charge. It was so uncomplicated to put in and set up and offers rapid choice of plans of all sorts from bbc iplayer, itv player etcetera,. Wonderful bit of gear, promptly sent from amazon.

So much i can say the best box i experienced. Latest generation of fire tv do not have this future only for the reason that you can invest in adapter for few of kilos. Forget about about 4k photograph with no it. I could go on about this for hrs but in which is the stage?. If you do not have to have/treatment about 4k and hd is good more than enough for you go for it(five*). If you want to see 4k photo never forget about adapter.

    What a fantastic piece of kit. I’m not too good at fitting and tuning modern gizmos, so my grandson did the job in about 5 minutes. It works well and and i think worth the price. The alexa voice helps enormously.

    1. Bought as a gift for my tech illiterate girlfriend. Combined with netflix and prime, has more on tv than any sensible person would ever need. Has to independently powered (so you need a spare plug socket) but is smooth in menus and simple to use.

    This was a replacement for an older model fire which stopped working suddenly. Despite being well out of warrantry, replaced without quibble by amazon. This is stellar customer service; i was quite prepared to buy another so have nothing but praise for amazon based on my experience. This model works perfectly well on a wi-fi connection; my old one was cable connected. It works and does exactly what it is supposed to do and i am a happy customer.

  12. Excellent bit of kit and the alexa voice is very responsive. Lots of apps and easy to navigate. The only negative for me is why some old out of date movies have to be purchased and not available on the prime subscription.

    1.  many have been a bit disappointed that the new generation of the firetv was not as powerful as it could have been, my self included. That said, the firetv is still a great device and due to the well made software on top, it runs smoothly and even plays 96fps 10bit 4k content without issues, where other devices with similar hardware ( many chinese android boxes ) fail to do so. What i really like is the small formfactor as on my tv which hangs on the wall it is hidden behind and not visible and with the bluetooth remote its perfectly useable and the alexa features come in quite handy if you have like my some smart lights and other things which you can control with alexa skills and with that also with a firetv. The biggest downside and thats way only 4 stars, is that you need to sideload a lot of things which you can not get in the amazon app store, and i am not talking from movie and tv show apk’s which are not every where perfectly legal, but even normal apps you can get on google play, you need to sideload or use downloader , etc. If that doesn’t bother you and you in a country which is natively supported by amazon, then you can with amazon video/music get the most out of it and installing your own apk’s is easy with things like the downloader app, fire dl or droid admin. I tested the firetv with various different 4k footage and it ate all with no problem and played it back perfectly and also the wifi speed is quite impressive, lower encoded 4k files i was able to play via wifi without any problems. Pro’s- small device- plays any 4k content- smooth and well designed operating system ( on top of android )- direct integration of amazon prime services- direct integration for amazon alexa- very good remote- extremly fast wificon’s- 3rd gen not as powerful as expected- non amazon appstore apk’s must be sideloaded- no ethernet without adapter- no airmouse capabilities- expensive for the hardware.
