Engadget Review

The Fire TV Cube is a glimpse at where voice controlled TV viewing is going — but it’s not quite the future yet. Some voice commands are genuinely useful, but you’ll likely be frustrated by the things it can’t do. Most people would be better off with a Fire TV and a separate Echo Dot.
