Not a deal, but at least a sign that they'll go on sale in the coming weeks after gift card sales from xmas start to decrease.

You are probably referring to the fire tv which does not have a ethernet on the latest verison. A big fail cause not everyone has a high speed wifi network at home and this will not let you play 1080p or 4k over wifi. Amazon clearly screwed the fire tv.

This deal is for the stick which for $30 is overpriced for a refurb.

Yes, I know this is the stick. This was $25 New during the holidys. I am just pointing out that the possibility of the next generation of the box is due and that hopefully it will have wired internet for HD. It seems all fo the "boxes" are sold out so I would assume a Gen 3 box is due ... The 2nd gen and to a lesser extent first gen sticks get quite warm and ocasionaly give me the overheting screen. When I use blue tooth it seems even worse..

I guess I am lementing the fact they killed the boxes and choices are a bit more limited.

Oh wow, the 2nd gen Fire TV doesn't have an ethernet port? I honestly can't understand why they would cut that out since it is supposed to be a premium streaming device. I have a 1st gen FireTV in my bedroom and recently put a MoCA wireless extender in there that also has 2 wired ports. I wired my FireTV to it and now I don't have Netflix downgrading my video quality or the buffering issues.

No the fire boxes gen 1 and 2 do have wired network and usb suport, it is the gen 3 ( 2 inch square dongle on a leash) that has no ports on it and of course sticks, however they have a $25 adapter for wired network for gen 2 sicks and the gen 3 (square dongle on a leash).. The gen 2 sticks seem to get quite warm. I wonder if the current of a standerd power supply is enough to keep everything happy.. My sticks complaign when a different power supply is used, and wont do updates.

You cant get the gen2 boxes anywhere other than used or ebay anymore.. I kind of wished I had one now..

Mine died a couple months after the ridiculously short 90 day warranty. I bought a Roku to replace it. Never buying an Amazon device with a 90 day warranty.
