I received the Fire TV Stick 4K on launch day. I own the previous model and this is a much better experience. First off the remote is a huge improvement. The power button on the remote can turn on my tv, my receiver, fire stick, and switch the inputs automatically so the fire stick is on screen and ready to go with just one click of the power button. Its really nice. This is how it should have been all along. It gets even better though… lets say my TV is already on, and my receiver is set to a different input such as my FIOS tv box? All you do is click the home button on the remote and the remote switches the receiver to the correct hdmi input on the receiver for the fire stick! One remote to rule them all, and yes it controls volume on the receiver too! This is excellent. Its highly configurable. The setup is quite nice. You can define which inputs get picked when hitting the power and home button. You can define which device the volume buttons control. Amazon has done a great job with the Fire Stick 4K.Its faster than previous fire sticks. No more menu lag. Things are smoother and faster overall. Ive used Roku, Chromecast Ultra and Fire Stick… I like them all for different reasons. I also dislike chromecast because 5.1 audio will not work on my receiver because chromecast refuses to support Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1. Fire stick has no problem handling DD5.1. This makes my plex and netflix experience much more enjoyable. The remote is better than not having a remote (chromecast). Rokus are very nice as well. All 3 of these options are great in their own way and frankly I had thought fire stick was the least desirable but recently Ive come to realize I prefer Fire stick so I pre-ordered the 4K fire stick and I could not be happier with it. Amazon needs to keep up the good work. The 4K stick is a solid product and an excellent upgrade from the previous model Let me tell you, I was super excited for the launch of the new FireTV Stick with its leading edge technology and processing power. Well, its got that but theres a couple bug, game breaking problems I have with this thing.1) The Amazon platform is basically retooled Android, which is a crap interface. Its cluttered, redundant, and Amazon being Amazon wants you to use all their services over everyone elses so not only does their menu get in the way but the top third of the home screen is promotions for whatever they want to push.2) Also because its Amazon they want you to use THEIR streaming services to rent movies so much so that there is no Vudu or Google Play app available to install. If Prime Video had a decent selection of rentals (it doesnt) or a halfway usable interface (it doesnt) I would have less of a problem.3) Our FireTV Stick has issues with flickering and sound dropout. Tech support immediately supplied a series of less than helpful troubleshooting tips. Did you try a different TV? Did you try a different HDMI port? Despite my Roku working just fine. I elected to return this since I was already fed up with the closed interface and terrible menus.Slightly less of an issue but still annoying is the inability to completely turn off HDR. Its either always on or adaptive meaning the content dictates HDR which is a problem especially with Netflix (which is calibrated too dark on some TVs)For now Im happier with my Roku Stick despite less robust HDR support.Edit: updated my review for the following:- Amazon reached out immediately after my review to get additional feedback and to offer more support. That actually means something these days. Ill continue to monitor for problems- I upgraded to a new TV and this makes the HDR issue better since it actually looks good on this TV. Problem still stands of not being able to disable HDR entirely if needed- The smart controls feature is nice. I can use Alexa to change TV inputs now.- Less flickering on new tv but still have sound dropoutsHowever my issue with not having a way to watch VUDU/UV movies is a huge issue. On top is that, MoviesAnywhere doesnt tell you which movies were transferred over in 4K. So while the titles may sync, in cases of certain films (eg Deadpool 2) you only get the HD version and not the UHD/HDR one you paid for. Until this is fixed Ill leave my review at 3 stars. Our main streaming service is DirecTV Now, and this stick doesnt run it right. The app seems to works and then just freezes. When I go to run a speed test, the connection is super low, and then ramps up over time back up to full speed. Its as though the app crashes the stick. Other things seem to work fine, but not the app we use the most. Will return and continue to use gen 2 and gen 3 devices. Too bad.UPDATE: So, I deleted DirecTV Now and did a fresh install. For the past three days, things actually worked well and considered revising my rating. Then I tried to watch a little Sunday football. CBS froze over and over again and caused the app to continually crash. Thought maybe it was the local CBS stream because other channels worked fine. Then I tried the Roku I have in my kids room, DirecTV Now worked fine. Figured Id give it another go for the second game, same result. Watched Rams/Seahawks in my kids room with no issue on the Roku device. Again, other apps seem to work fine (I think) on Fire, but this stick isnt right just yet. Id wait for problems to work itself out.

Although there are already 9,000 plus reviews and no one will ever read this, I think its worth noting how easy it is to setup the remote to power on not only the television but accessories as well. Remember those code books from days gone by where you had to enter a number of codes to get a remote to work with a receiver, or a sound bar? This thing does the work for you. It EASILY sets up to work both my TV and my SOUND BAR. The fact that my TV is one brand and my sound bar is another is no problem. I love not having to fish for 3 different remote controls whenever I want to watch Amazon Prime or Netflix. WARNING! I didnt realize that when you buy any Amazon device like this one (or a tablet, etc) it comes preloaded with your info. Thats great.But if you gift it to someone else it has all your info, and they can buy & install apps, make in app purchases and so on. You then have to rely on them to figure out how to switch it to their Amazon account…if they even have one.EASY FIX. I guess I just needed to mark the This is a gift or the This order contains a gift box available on the Cart page. High speed internet, wi-fi, etc., did not get to my neck of the woods until very recently so my experience with these devices was limited. The first was chrome cast which was good except I had to bring the laptop into the living room (I dont care to watch on a small screen) to be able to cast to the TV. I know, a not a real big problem, but still awkward. Also, it was a bit tricky for me to set up. I finally took the plunge and purchased the fire stick. I have read some reviews that are quite technical and way above my pay grade. I will keep this simple. The fire stick has been very, very, good for me. Set up was a snap. I dont have a smart TV, just a fairly new, cheap, HD. The picture is great and so is the sound. If there are technical glitches I havent noticed them. I still need practice negotiating the screens, but that will come with time. I am getting used to talking to a machine, but still say please when addressing Alexa. I have already spent a couple of snow days catching up on two seasons of The Blacklist and have almost gotten through Bosch . I still havent had time for the movies. There is so much available it boggles the mind. I guess all of this identifies me as an old person. Well, I certainly am and for me the fire stick is the best thing to come along since the VCR. I would highly recommend it for my fellow oldies who may be a bit leery about trying something out of their comfort zone. This isnt a review, but it is more of a statement… I just got my firestick a week ago and so far I am so unhappy with it. the setup and everything went fine its just that on many of the movies I choose I have audio but no video, another issue is many of the basic channels that I thought were basic like lifetime and CBS and certain other ones I have to pay for to see. I thought they were many more free channels. Another thing, is the buffering. Most everything that I have tried to watch just keeps buffering and I can watch the same movie on my phone or my tablet which is the same Wi-Fi connection that I use for my TV and I can watch the whole movie before I can see anything on my TV. Im about to send this back I dont understand what the big deal is with this item. and I tried to get local channels I can only get one local channel and then I cant even see it live. It just shows me what the latest headlines were on that news show. Please tell me something I dont know or that it will get better somehow. I dislike the fact that I had to pry the remote open with a pair of my scissors. I wish there was a simpler way to open it. Maybe I did not possess the strength to push it open. Also my firestick restarts itself randomly. Support helped me and I thought it fixed it but it did not. Its overheating!! Ive had these issues before but not straight out the box. Really upsetting. We owned the initial firestick and had used it regularly for years. A remote issue forced us to replace the unit, and Im so glad we did! The responsiveness and speed of the new version is amazing! No more lagging or double click. The new remote is also a huge upgrade with the voice control option. Its a must have! This is an upgrade from my original firestick. The installation was so easy, Amazon is really good with their step by step instructions. It works perfectly but the thing I like even more than the voice control is the size of the remote. That original remote was ridiculously small and easy to loose.

Notes from the Community

So far, I have tried dozens of different price ranges for TWS earplugs. Most are in this price range, but some are lower and some are higher. Overall, I think this is the best $50 I have tried so far. Now I will tell you why…Connecting them is very simple, no problem. When they take them out of the box, they are automatically paired, very easy and almost immediately paired, so its good in this regard. Connecting some earbuds to a Bluetooth device can sometimes be painful, but it cant connect to these earbuds.The battery is very good / comparable to the other batteries I tested. I am close to 3 hours while playing music.Now, in my opinion, the sound is the real star. Although not as good as some of the more expensive TWS earplugs Ive tried, the sound is still very good, better than anything else Ive tried at this price. I listened to a few hours of music and it sounded great for all types of music. I would say that I prefer them to pop and rock music because they dont have a lot of bass (which is usually the first choice for electronic music), but they are enough. It is loud enough for me, I usually keep them at around 60%.advantage1. Easy to connect, easy to automatically pair2. Battery level indicator on the front of the chassis3.2-3 hours of music playback battery life4. Very good installation - safe and comfortable5. The sound quality is very goodI will definitely recommend this. I think they are a good buy price and you may be very happy with them like me. So far, I have used them for a month without any problems, if I have some problems in the future, I will update this comment. I am from 5 stars. Honest, I am not super technologically inclined. But there were so easy to set up! I just need to turn on my bluetooth, then it automatic hook up my phone. Also they come with several different sized ear cover things. This is great for me. I wear it when I go to gym. It works good. Its a light and comfort product! I like it! I was messing with the buds listening to an audio book and got a phone call. Transferred over with no issues. Easy to use and sounds fantastic. Even had to turn the volume down using these. Love the charging case and compact size, fits great in my backpack. The sound quality is good and they fit nicely in my ears. They even provide a variety of mesh covers in different sizes. I love the little charging case as well. It keeps my buds safe and charged. It is also easy to recharge the case by plugging it into my computer that is attached to electricity. You can also just use an adapter for plugging it into a wall outlet. The charge holds for a long time.I was also able to easily answer the phone when using the earbuds - love them Husband loves them! Not sure I want to keep them. The left ear is quiet, not the same volume as the right ear. And when I place a call they cant hear me well on the phone. Not sure if I Just got an off pair or what. The sound quality is much better than I had anticipated and theyre very comfortable, but Ive had some technical issues with them. Multiple times, after Ive shut them off and slipped them into their charging case, theyll suddenly turn on and connect to my phone, playing my the sound from my phone on the buds inside the charging case instead of my phones speaker. There was also an instance where I was using them and it started dialing a random New York number Ive never seen. If anything, Id expect this type of glitch to dial the last number I dialed out, since thats a feature you can activate by double pressing the multi function button, but to dial a number Ive never dialed in a state I dont live in? It was really odd. If it werent for these issues, itd be an easy five star review, and Id gladly change my rating if I can get these problems resolved. Hopefully Im just doing something wrong, but I cant imagine what it might be. Brand new. Only one earbud works. Crap

Notes from the Community

So I used it a couple of days with no effect then I found another product which has identical ingredients to this one. Either this is a knockoff of the Eye Gel by Radha Beauty or other way around I dont know.https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01H7TV2GW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1Check out the attached pictures for the comparison of ingredients.Here couple of other products with almost identical ingredients.https://www.amazon.com/Baebody-Retinol-Moisturizer-Cream-Face/dp/B01FLO5914/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_sims?ie=UTF8https://www.amazon.com/Baebody-Blue-Dark-Circles-Wrinkles/dp/B071D6D565/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_sims?ie=UTF8 This product made my under eyes red and irritated. I really wanted to love this product. I really ended up hating it. It is only now after purchasing and using this product that I took the time to read the negative reviews and WOW i should have read them first. This is indeed some kind if scam. My results are the same as many many others! My eyes are much worse than they were before use. I am extremely unhappy with this product. This product did not fair well on my skin in the least bit. My dark circles worstened and seemed to be scarring from the red, welp like marks I would get when applying it. I tried it for 2 weeks just to make sure it wasnt just a phase and as you can see from the photos, theres a huge difference in the before and after… I just wanted to tighten and lighten… total opposite. Give it time and use it religiously- this thing really works!! As a mother of 4 in her 30s, I also nanny full time for 3 additional little ones. Im always running on minimal to no sleep, dont eat right, am always on the go… This helped actually take away the dark circles I was spending so much money on expensive makeup to conceal! Try to anyway… they always would shine through until now!! Two weeks between photos.***This is my own opinion and I havent received anything free, nor have I been paid for this review. I did a 1 week test of this product for 2 problems I have: dark circles and crows feet (Im 48). Ill post pics but be aware that the before pics were taken on an overcast day and the after ones on a sunny day - but what you CAN compare is the contrast between the dark circles under my eyes and the rest of my skin on the same day - in the after pics, you can see my skin all looks one color (for the most part), whereas in the before pics, the dark circles stand out from the rest of the surrounding skin.I did a video but Ill also upload the pics. I took pics of me smiling, not smiling, and a side view close up so I could see how the crows feet were doing. As far as dark circles, I literally look like someone beat me theyre so bad in the before pics. But the after pics, its SO much lighter!Really, really happy with the results. I use it mornings before I put on makeup and at night after I take my makeup off. I also use it on my laugh lines on my cheeks and on my neck where the wrinkling has begun! Its helping there, too. I like that its not greasy. It goes on almost like a light mask and tightens ever so slightly as it dries completely. Not in an uncomfortable way, though. This gel is pleasant to the touch and does a nice job of moisture gel. However, I purchased it because I have bags under my eyes and wanted to get rid of them. I am half way through the jar and see no difference. I do not have dark circles, so I cannot comment on that aspect of this product. It is as good as, but no better than, Neutrogena Hydrogel, which is significantly less expensive. Thus, I cannot recommend this product.If results improve with the second half of the jar, I will amend this review. Well Ive been using this twice a day for about two and a half months (Mar 30 to Jun 10) and am sad to report that the results have not been significant in my case. On the plus side it is easy to apply and some of the wrinkles have been reduced. But I wonder if the slight wrinkle reduction is a result of the twice daily massage or did it come from the cream? Actually I was hoping for some reduction in the puffiness under my eyes and for this there hasnt been any progress. Or I am too far over the hill to get any noticeable results. Since it arrived, Ive been using this product twice a day for a full month. I really love the product dispenser. Its easy to use, always dispenses just enough, and helps prevent contamination. Once applied, the eye gel feels great. It feels similar to an aloe gel, but with more of a cucumber aroma. There is a slightly cool, slightly tingling feeling/sensation. If you apply to much, it will feel heavy and kind of sticky. I try my best to apply a relatively thin and even layer of product around my under eye and also over my eyelids. It is certainly not the miracle eye gel that I was expecting after having read other reviews. The first photo was taken the day it arrived, Jan 22, 2017 & the second photo is from today, Feb 23, 2017 (no makeup worn in either photograph). Personally, I dont see a difference between the before and after. I wasnt expecting over night results, but some of the other photo reviews for this product (with 10 days between images) made me feel like I should see some kind of difference. I was not paid to make this review, I didnt receive any discount on the product - I am just an almost 30 yr old female trying to get rid of hereditary dark circles and some fine wrinkles. While I will continue to use this product until it is all gone, but it looks like I am still on the search for a product that produces results… I will update this review once I have finished using the rest of the product.2/24/17 - Quick update, the Baebody Team reached out to me and refunded my order, without me even having to ask. That is very kind, and makes me feel good to know that Baebody genuinely stands behind the integrity their products. As far as customer service, certainly deserves 5 stars.
