Amazon Fire TV (2015) review

 

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

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....

Amazon Fire TV

 

The latest 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.

Apple has yet to add 4K streaming to its Apple TV, but there other solid options for 4K streaming. The Roku Premiere+ is a very capable media streamer on Roku's platform and features a handy headphone jack built into the remote. The Nvidia Shield...

Amazon Fire TV review: The 4K box to beat (for Prime subscribers, at least)

 

Amazon's 2015 Fire TV isn't so much a brand-new product as it is a touch-up on the original.

4K and 802.11ac Wi-Fi for the same price as the old Fire TV ; Prime-centric home screen brings you video without much effort ; Fast navigation and accurate voice control

Third-party app integration pales in comparison to Prime ; 4K content is limited to Amazon and Netflix ; No Netflix content in search results

The latest Fire TV makes some welcome improvements, but owners of the original needn’t upgrade.

Amazon Fire TV review: Awesome for Amazon addicts but too pushy for everyone else

 

The new Amazon Fire TV box can deliver 4K video for less, and answer your questions with Alexa, but its focus on Amazon's own TV shows and movies makes it less desirable for users who subscribe to Netflix, Hulu and other apps beyond Prime.

The Amazon Fire TV can access thousands of the most popular streaming apps. Its interface is very quick to respond, and Amazon content launches almost immediately. Parental controls and support are top-notch. Voice search from the remote works very...

Popular apps like Netflix, Hulu, YouTube and others take a back seat to Amazon's own TV shows and movies. Search results prioritize Amazon, and often hide results from other providers even if you've installed them. There's no way to customize the...

The Fire TV is a formidable streamer with 4K capability and oodles of features, but it tries too hard to serve up Amazon's own TV shows and movies.

Amazon Fire TV Gaming Edition

 

The Fire TV is designed, first and foremost, not to give you the streaming TV shows and movies you want from various providers like Netflix, Hulu and others, but to entice you to watch Amazon's own streaming content. As I trudged through Amazon's...

Amazon Fire TV 2 Review

 

There are a couple ways to look at the new Fire TV box, the second video-streaming box from Amazon. The first is to say that not much has changed from the first Amazon Fire TV box. In fact, you...

Super speedy ; 4K support (if you have a 4K display) ; Alexa

Favors Prime content ; Busy interface ; Loses audio output

Amazon Fire TV 2 Review (2015)

 

The Amazon Fire TV is aimed at Amazon Prime members and prospective Prime members - if that's not you, be wary. If you're thinking of purchasing this device with the intent of making it your sole Smart TV controller, you're going to want to be aware of...

If you have a 4K TV and are an Amazon Prime subscriber, the 2015 edition of the Fire TV is worth the $100 you’ll spend. If, however, you’re looking for an OK video streaming device for as cheap as possible, you might want to hunt down last year’s...

A Review of the Amazon Fire 4K TV box

 

In a landscape of growing (albeit slowly) 4K ultra HD content options , streaming media and set-top boxes with support for ultra high definition resolution are popping up all over the place. In this new environment, Amazon, a consistent developer and...

Access to plenty of 4K content ; Easy to set up and use ; Excellent gaming, regular content and apps access ; Streams content very smoothly ; Powerful processing specs for smooth use ; Excellent price

No HDMI 2.0 as far as we can tell ; Weak on game selection ; No access to full range of Google Play apps ; Heavily oriented toward Amazon Prime subscribers

Overall, the Amazon Fire TV box with 4K support is a great piece of hardware that’s been build and programmed well for the range of features it offers. We generally think that the Nvidia Shield is the better device, but if you’re an Amazon Prime...

Amazon Fire TV (2nd Generation) 4K Streaming Media Player

 

Adrienne Maxwell explores Amazon's new 4K-friendly Fire TV streaming media player to see how it compares with original Fire TV and other 4K boxes from Roku and Nvidia.

With the second-generation Fire TV, Amazon has made a very good product even better, adding 4K support, a faster processor, and more robust search capabilities without increasing the price. My general verdict about the Fire TV remains the same as it...
