Amazon Fire TV


Amazon's $100 media hub offers an excellent combination of power and flexibility with an accessible, impressively smooth menu system.

Very responsive. Elegant design and interface. Lots of content and apps available. Voice search is functional. Flexible port array

Highly curated Amazon interface limits out-of-the-box Android flexibility. Game performance isn't spectacular

In some ways, Amazon is a lot like Apple. It doesn't invent new ways to do things, but it takes already established ideas and polishes them to a shine. It did this with e-readers when it made the Kindle, it did this with Android tablets when it made...

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


When Amazon unveiled the Fire TV, the company beat its chest about its killer performance, superior search capabilities, and lack of a “closed ecosystem,” pausing in between each bullet point to clown its competition over their inferiority.

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

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.

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.

Amazon Fire TV Review


Several months ago, Amazon announced its contending streaming box, the Amazon Fire TV. The box is lightning quick and has a couple of nifty tricks, but is that enough to overtake Roku?

Amazon Fire TV Streaming Media Player


Amazon Fire TV joins a crowded market. Will voice control, the backing of Amazon, and Gary Busey be enough to separate the Fire TV from the pack? Adrienne Maxwell finds out.

The $99 Fire TV is an impressive debut for Amazon; in a crowded market of streaming media players, its voice search, speed, content-centered interface, and gaming features help distinguish it from the pack. Just as the AppleTV has a strong iTunes bent,...
