Title: Amazon Fire TV Stick
Post by: darkenedsoul on October 30, 2014, 04:28:33 AM
Anyone pre-order it? I ordered two. One for myself and the other for my girlfriend. Since we both have Prime it's a quicker way to watch it vs having to fire up other components and couldn't beat the initial price offering. Basically 2 for the price of one. Unfortunately that was only for 2 days which has since passed. Looking forward to playing with it once it arrives. Still on the fence about a Roku 3. Not sure if they've got a Roku 4 in the wings either....

I pre-ordered one as well.  I don't really need it as I have a roku on one tv and a PS3 on the other, but I couldn't resist at that price.  My college age son will be moving out soon(I hope) so he'll probably take the PS3 and then I get some use out of the fire stick.

Like Dave, I don't need one (have a Roku 3 on both TVs already) but ordered one for the $19 intro deal for Prime customers. I'll probably give it to my mom, so she can be introduced to the wonderful world of Netflix streaming.

Arrived and poked around a little on prime for tv shows and watched a couple movies yesterday (via the PS3). I guess I need to load some additional apps onto it, just not sure what would be worthwhile and free that can be  loaded onto it. I little klunky as I had to move some stuff around to plug it into the TV via the power cable to the A/C block. Now I have to find the 4th HDMI port so I can hook my 12' cable back into it if I wanted to display from laptop to the TV....
