dafish said: I have found the fire stick to be slow and overheat easily. Prefer the speed of the Fire TV on a wired network. Wonder if they have made any improvements on these issues.
My experience as well. However I have found the FTV2 on a 5g network with decent signal nearly useable as well. My 'benchmark' for acceptable is quite high though, as I am using the HDHomeRun Prime DVR solution with Android Beta release sideloaded as my benchmark. To been deemed acceptable the stream has to be able to play without pixilation or loss of audio stream on a HD channel (MPEG2). That's not easily done. I get slightly better performance using Kodi with the HDHomeRun plugin.
I agree - the original FireTV Stick wasn't very good. I got rid of mine for a second FireTV box (first gen) shortly after I got it.
Very curious to see how the Stick 2 improves - esp. when compared to the first gen FireTV box. I lost one of our voice remotes a while ago and was thinking of picking up a new remote - the price of this deal (stick 2 + voice remote) is almost as low as a new voice remote alone, so I'm in for this deal... We can always find a way to use the $10 video credit as well so that sweetens it...
Hey everyone, I feel the same way with the FireStick. I got rid of mine and replaced it with the FireTV. Now I have 3 FireTv's running in my house. I think the only way I am able to get away with it is I have GigLife Internet through Cox, so my internet speed is pretty ridiculous. For streaming I primarily use PlaystationVue on all 3 at the same time and have buffering every once in a while, but for the most part it works great for me.
the same holds true for "other" stick types versus box types and game consoles. There simply is more cubic centimeter space for heat to dissipate. There are wider islands between the circuit traces (most stick type don't even have boards in them, they're "all on a chip"). MOST box types have more ramm and some have better processors. But of course, you're also paying a huge premium for the box type over the stick type, too. New generation box types usually do 4k, which I don't need because streaming is SO compressed anyways. 4K on a physical disk is pretty impressive, but isn't a real benefit when streaming, I prefer 1080 when streaming on my box.
I like my first generation stick better than Roku, and this new one looks to me a useful upgrade for very little money when you include the digital credit.
