Save 55% on this "game-changing" streaming stick ahead of Amazon Prime Day with a Prime membership.

$27 at Amazon

This bestselling Fire TV Stick turns any television into a smart TV and instantly gives you access to thousands of channels, music and apps, including Netflix, Prime Video and Disney+. It also lets you use your voice to search movies, shows and more with Alexa.

The latest generation of the streaming stick is 50 per cent more powerful than the previous version, allowing for speedy streaming in full HD.

Additionally, you can use the remote to stream music and podcasts, view live camera feeds, check the weather and more.

Pros 👍

  • Easy to navigate

  • User-friendly interface

  • Small and compact

  • Easy to set up

  • Voice control is convenient

  • Quick app buttons speed search up

If I can confidently recommend any product to you, it's this Fire TV Stick. I have multiple in my household (yes, it may seem excessive, but we just love them that much).

They're convenient, easy to use and have a top-tier interface. I love how effortless it is to search for shows, movies, apps, songs and even specific YouTube videos with the Alexa voice function and quick app buttons. It's super helpful when it comes to accessibility, which we appreciate in my household.

Navigating everything is pretty straightforward, from apps to settings. It's also painless to set up, and that's something I value in a tech product. All you have to do is plug two things in, and you're good to go!

I also prefer how small it is — who wants a big remote anymore? Not me!

Cons 👎

  • Sometimes slow/laggy

  • Gets lost easily (I might be the problem)

This product definitely has more pros than cons for me and everyone in my house; however, it's not entirely flawless.

While I do love how small it is, I will say I often lose these little remotes. That might entirely be a me-problem, but I figured it'd be something to note. So, be sure to make a mental note of where you last left it — and don't let it get lost in the depths of your couch.

The biggest downside that I've noticed is that it can be laggy when searching on the homepage, which can get annoying. It's nothing that would stop me from purchasing another, though (clearly).

This Fire TV device has nearly a five-star rating, with tons of users praising its functionality. Many can agree that it "works great" and is "easy to use."

"It's nice having all apps in one place," writes one shopper. They also said it's "easy to take on-the-go" to avoid having to sign into their accounts in hotel rooms. They called Alexa "quite handy," especially for "accessibility" purposes.

"It has truly transformed my entertainment experience," said another person. They confirmed that setup "was a breeze" and that the streaming stick delivers "crisp HD quality."

While someone said it has a "great interface" and that they appreciate the "integration [of] multiple devices for home sound," they also noted that it "requires regular reboots." They also said they experience lagging, particularly with Prime Video.


If you're in the market for a new streaming device or want to upgrade your old Fire TV Stick, this epic 55 per cent off deal is totally worth it. I am obsessed with my streaming stick, and I really appreciate the experience it offers.

As most shoppers say, it's easy to use and a breeze to navigate. While it can get laggy at times or require some reboots, it's not something that deters me from the product — but that's just me! At just $27, you can't really go wrong.
