Amazon Fire TV Stick
The Fire TV Stick addresses a number of issues we had with the Fire TV and comes with a much smaller price tag. It's not dramatically better than its competitors, but it's certainly not any worse. For $39, it's a perfectly viable streaming-media option, and the best one if you've already bought into Amazon's ecosystem.

Possibly the best Â£7 I have spent. The U.I is great, responsive & offers enough choice of apps to keep most people satisfied. Previously I have used a Roku LT, Xbox 360/One & a YouView box. This beats them all for media streaming.Engadget Reader80December 18, 2014Feedback submitted!Unable to submit feedback!Nice handy device, much like Chromecast but a bit easier to use. With the ability to view Amazon prime on the main screen and use apps such as Netflix gives you the ability to switch back and forth with ease. The only issue that i have with it is that the sound skips a lot. Maybe on the next firmware update this will be fixed. But I think that Amazon has a winner on their hands.
