Amazon Fire TV (2015)


The new Fire TV adds 4K video support and Amazon's Alexa voice assistant to make the already-excellent $100 media streamer even more powerful.

Very responsive. Supports 4K content. Improved voice search with Alexa voice assistant

Occasionally stutters when jumping between apps. Content is heavily weighted toward Amazon sources

Amazon's new Fire TV media streamer takes the powerful performance of the first Android-based Fire TV and ups the ante with ultra high-definition (4K) video support and Amazon's Alexa voice assistant. The updated Fire TV retains its broad support for...

Amazon Fire TV (2015) Review


For Amazon Prime subscribers, the Fire TV is a no-brainer.

Fast, powerful hardware ; Huge selection of top-quality apps ; 4K Ultra HD capable ; Advanced voice-assisted search ; Fun games

Won’t work with all 4K Ultra HD TVs ; Heavily favors Prime subscribers

If you’re at all invested in the Amazon Prime universe, the Fire TV is a no-brainer. And if you already own a Fire TV and are considering the upgrade, we only recommend pulling the trigger if you have a 4K UHD TV or intend to purchase one soon....

Living with Amazon Fire TV: Two Months On


Amazon's Fire TV set-top box arrived to shake up an increasingly crowded home entertainment segment, but does it have what it takes to set the living room alight? The squared-off streamer has been hooked up to my TV for two months now, piping Prime...

Amazon Fire TV review: the set-top that tries to do everything


Here's the thing about Amazon: We can't figure the company out half the time. Few things embody that quite as well as the Fire TV. The company is adamant

Fast performance ; Impressive list of apps, even at launch ; Voice search is convenient, fast and accurate

Voice search doesn't work within apps ; Onscreen keyboard is offensively bad ; Inconsistent gaming experience ; Carousel UI doesn't work as well on Fire TV as it does on tablets ; Many apps and games are buggy ports from other platforms

The Fire TV should be impressive -- it's faster and better equipped than most of the other media streamers out there, and does it all at a decent price. Right now though, features like gaming, voice search and ASAP are barely helping it keep pace with...

Amazon Fire TV Review


Does the world need another streaming box? Amazon Fire TV argues “yes” and says speed, voice search that actually works, and proper gaming set it apart from the Apple TV, Roku 3, and Google Chromecast. As we've seen with the Kindle Fire HDX tablet...

Fire TV is a first-gen product, and it feels it. For all the clear benefits - the fast processor, ease of setup, accurate Voice Search, and solid picture quality - there are still glitches. The UI can be confusing, and searching by voice ignores the...

Amazon Fire TV review


My name is Dan Seifert and I'm addicted to cable TV.

Speedy performance ; Voice search that works ; Fun games that aren't a gimmick

Voice search is limited ; Missing key apps like HBO Go ; No live TV options

The future of shopping wants to be the future of TV

Amazon Fire TV Review


After all of Amazon's chest beating, The FireTV might feel disappointing in some regards, but it's still a great little streaming media box with a snappy, intuitive interface and plenty of promise.

Slick hardware look and feel ; Voice recognition works well ; Snappy, easily navigable user interface ; Great remote ; Gaming is better than expected

Voice search is not universal ; Apps not pre-installed ; App load times are no faster than competition ; Game controller feels cheap ; Drawn out setup process

Although we think the Fire TV was a little overhyped at its introduction, it’s still a really great set-top streamer with great performance. The one big low point is the lack of universal search, and the box isn’t the Formula 1 speed demon we had hoped...

Amazon Fire TV Preview


The Amazon Fire TV is very competitively priced streaming and gaming all-in-one box at $100 though it doesn't undercut anyone. Roku and Apple TV are the same price and the streaming sticks are less.
