    Just got this today. Brand new version. I’m learning that I’ve got a whole lot to learn! So far, very pleased that I can watch a movie on my Echo Home Theater setup! Pretty cool! Connected right up to my WiFi! Lots to enjoy! Very pleased so far! Got my cable box (Charter) working! Pretty awesome!!
    Update: 10/17/2021
    Got my Echo Studios and Sub connected (wirelessly) to the “Cube” and am very pleased! Home Theatre works well for my tastes and needs. I can downsize my big home theatre components now! Amazon Music and Apple Music sound great! Very pleased. Setup is tricky for some settings, so be patient, please. I do have a question about there not being a Spectrum (Charter) TV app? What’s up with that, Amazon?
    Update 10/18/2021 Have run into a bug in lip sync for the TNT app. No fix found yet.
    11/13/2021 update. Running into a few bugs. The unit sometimes won’t power on and I have to unplug the power then plug it back in. Not a deal breaker, just annoying. This Fire Cube gives a really sweet picture on my Panasonic TV that’s 7 years old. Overall, I’m very pleased for the most part. I called Spectrum TV and they said that they’re working on a Spectrum App for Fire Tv so that’s encouraging.

    The media could not be loaded.

     There is nothing really I dislike about it.
    I love that its clearer, has more space to download and now I don’t have alot of problems with it buffering or freezing anymore.

    It’s a decent TV box but… If you want to use your Alexa like a regular Alexa this isn’t for u. I tried many times to just listen to music. It will automatically turn your TV on and pull up Android music. If u disconnect the box from TV it won’t play any music. It will say playing but no sound. Highly disappointed as much as I paid for this. I expect u to be able to not only watch TV but listen to music without the TV on.

    I ran out of memory for apps in my Fire 4k sticks so I got one of these to replace the stick in my main theater room and am very pleased with the results. The 16 GB of memory leaves me space to add more apps and the menu navigation is much snappier than the 4k stick’s, most likely due to the Cube’s hex-core processor. It came with an ethernet adapter so I set it up using wired ethernet out of curiosity. After using this configuration for two evenings I realized that the occasional buffering pauses that I had been seeing on my three Fire 4k sticks and Recast DVR, that are sometimes all in use at the same time, was due to a WiFi bottleneck even though I had good WiFi signal strength at all of the devices. I have since repurposed the long-ago abandoned ethernet cables routed throughout my house, added a new 8-port gigabit ethernet switch to my router, bought and connected Fire ethernet adapters for each of my Fire 4k sticks, connected my Recast DVR to ethernet (it already has an ethernet port on it) and have not seen a single buffering delay on any of my Fire devices since. This Fire Cube purchase has resulted in a significantly improved streaming experience throughout my home.

    Edit: I was very frustrated when I wrote this review. While I still have issues with it waking from sleep mode, I do like the Fire TV Cube. It is very fast.

    Don’t buy. I have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it to work every time. It’s extremely annoying.

    I want to start off by saying this a great device. It’s super fast, the UI is slick and snappy with zero lag. Overall it’s a really good streaming device that gives you everything you need. If you have a non-smart TV with no built-in apps, this will be a life saver. However, if you have a smart tv with built-in streaming apps, you will not be happy with the video quality.

    I have a 2020 LG OLED E9 which is a powerful tv with a bunch of features and support for the latest video & audio formats. It has all the built-in apps I could ever want but I thought I could benefit from a separate dedicated streaming device to take advantage of the ecosystem. Since my tv does 4K, eARC, Dolby Atmos, HDMI 2.1, HDR, Dolby Vision, etc., I assumed the video quality from the Fire Cube would be identical to what I get from my LG’s apps. Boy was I wrong!

    The problem is with this HDR/Dolby Vision nonsense which makes videos super dark compared to my LG’s app. Take a look at my comparison photo while streaming the movie Bright (no pun intended) on Netflix. This picture was taken with a cell phone in a dark living room so it’s not true-to-life colors, but it highlights just how dark all the scenes are on the Fire Cube compared to my LG’s app.

    After being spoiled from my tv’s apps, the Cube streaming was basically unwatchable. Everything is so dark and when watching nighttime movie scenes is like having the tv off. This isn’t a new or unique issue either. Do a Google search for “Fire tv netflix dark” and you’ll see this is has been going for years on all versions of Fire tv products with zero resolution.

    There is really something wrong with how Fire devices interpret the HDR/HDR10/Dolby Vision info from streaming apps. And I know it’s the Fire Cube because my 10-bit OLED panel supports all these formats and the streaming apps play perfectly with beautiful color. I tried every setting possible and nothing would help. Changed every possible setting in Fire OS; color, resolution, frame rate settings and tried Adaptive HDR. The problem is there is no true way to disable and turn off all this HDR wizardry in Fire OS which ruins the picture. Choosing Adaptive HDR and lowering the color bit to 8 makes no change.

    I also tried changing all the HDMI input settings on my tv, turned off Ultra Deep HD color, increased brightness, gamma, etc. Nothing would help. The Fire OS menus and interface were super bright but as soon as the movie would start playing, the picture would go dark because of the HDR/Dolby Vision. It got to the point where I could no longer watch movies on this thing. And it’s unfortunate because I really liked the device but for the foreseeable future, I’ll have to rely on smart tvs and their built-in apps.

    So in summary, if you have a smart tv, keep using your tv’s apps because chances are you will not like the video quality. If you have a non-smart tv or no other way to use streaming apps, you will love it.

    So far so good with this FireTV cube. Seems its the 2nd Gen cube with an updated remote. I have an LG OLED tv and was getting really tired of their WebOS and constant issues with Sling as of late. Granted I think It’s one of the better TV app systems I have used, but nowhere near the power of this cube. All of the apps look amazingly better picture quality wise on the cube especially Sling. Like any other amazon device since it was already linked to my account upon purchase, setup could not have been any easier. I really like the fact that this also comes with an ethernet adaptor.
