The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K debuted in 2018 at $ 50 and today it’s at an all-time low of $ 25. While this is a great price, we think the new Fire TV Stick 4K Max (see below) is a nice upgrade, especially since it now only costs $ 10 more than that old version. . On the other hand, if you want to pay as little as possible for 4K streaming, the non-Max stick is still a good deal.

If you’re looking for a fast device, look no further than the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max. The Max loads 4K content apps almost immediately, and navigating the system is fast and smooth. Best of all, the Max supports Wi-Fi 6 and almost all of the latest playback standards, including Dolby Vision. The downside to the Max is its Fire TV platform – we prefer Roku – and the fact that the ads are prominent everywhere.
The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the best Fire Stick on the market and is now at an all-time high of $ 35, slightly more expensive than the original Fire TV Stick 4K. For those looking for the best streaming experience Amazon can offer, it may be worth spending an additional $ 10 to purchase the Max.

It allows you to control power, input switching and volume on your TV, sound bar or AV receiver using only voice commands. You can also use your voice to change channels on a cable box. While not for everyone, the Cube could be a good choice for those who like to control their TV with their voice. The Fire TV Cube debuted in 2018 for $ 120, but is now at an all-time low of $ 80 this holiday season.

The Fire TV Recast is a cable cutter DVR that records free live TV that you can get in most parts of the country by installing an antenna. The Amazon Fire TV Recast DVR Antenna has no monthly fees, is easy to set up, and out-of-home streaming to your phone works well. The downside is that you’ll need a Fire TV device connected to your TV, and you’ll only be able to watch on two devices at a time. The 500GB dual-tuner version of Fire TV Recast initially went on sale in 2018 for $ 230, but is now back to an all-time low of $ 130.

After licensing its Fire TV operating system to third-party manufacturers such as Toshiba and Insignia, Amazon began producing its own series of Fire TV models in 2021. The entry-level Series 4 offers full access to Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa, via the remote control. . It also has 4K resolution and supports HDR video in HDR10 and HLG formats, and the 65- and 75-inch models have thinner bezels and also support Dolby Vision. We haven’t reviewed this model yet, but it will get AirPlay support later this year.
Go big! Right now, the 50-inch Series 4 costs $ 40 less than the 43-inch Series. The 55-inch (see below) costs an additional $ 50.
The Omni Series is a step up from the entry-level 4 Series and features a fully hands-free TV with built-in microphones. Just ask to turn on the TV and search, launch and control content with Alexa. Like the Series 4, it has 4K resolution and supports HDR video in HDR10 and HLG formats, and the 65-inch and 75-inch models support Dolby Vision. Additionally, Fire TV Omni is the first smart TV with built-in zoom, which will launch later this year.

We haven’t reviewed the Fire TV Omni yet, but it lacks full local dimming, quantum dot color, and the latest gaming features, meaning picture quality likely won’t be as good as the TCL. 5 at a similar price. Roku TV series or the Vizio M7Q series.
