Amazon Fire TV Stick – Hands On
Amazon’s Fire TV stick starts shipping on November 19, and we got our hands on one today for an early look at what promises to be one of the hottest gift items this holiday season. At just $40, the Fire TV Stick undercuts the Roku Streaming Stick in price, but puts it to shame when it comes to hardware specs. Frankly, when the Fire TV Stick was first announced, we thought it sounded a little too good to be true, but we’re happy to report now that we were wrong about that. Check out the video below to see it in action.

Unlike the Roku Streaming Stick, which is a bit sluggish compared to its full-sized streaming set-top box brethren, the Amazon Fire TV stick is quick to respond to commands, and any differences in app/content loading times are so minute, we’ll need a stopwatch to chart them. It’s interface is identical to the Fire TV Box, and its functionality is very similar, too. At this point, it seems the only real advantage to using an Amazon Fire TV box would be its Ethernet connection for faster HD video throughput, and its faster processor for smoother gaming.

We’ll be pitting the Fire TV Stick against the Fire TV box and, separately, the Roku Streaming Stick and Chromecast soon. We’ll also have our full review of the Fire TV Stick shortly, so visit back tomorrow for a more in-depth look at Amazon’s latest effort to buy your affection for its special brand of streaming movie, TV, games, and music delivery.

Amazon Fire TV Stick Review – Movies, Gaming, XBMC, and Sideloading Android Apps
Amazon released a lower cost version of their Fire TV set top video player. This version comes on an HDMI stick similar to a Chromecast and Roku Streaming stick. The major difference is that the Amazon product is a full Android computer, complete with 1 gig of RAM and 8 gigs of flash storage. It costs only $39, about in line with those competing devices.

The Fire TV Stick can run most of what the larger and more expensive Fire TV can run – with the exception of more involved 3D games with heavy system requirements. In my testing most of the casual games performed well.

In addition to Amazon’s streaming services the Fire TV Stick also works with YouTube, Netflix, and other services. HBO Go is the one exception.

The Fire TV Stick is a great value – and perhaps a better value than the more expensive Fire TV. It’s probably the most functional streaming device at this price point.
