Seems like a decent deal if you've had your eye on one. $15 off the regular price.

Wonder how long the sale is.. Possibly long enough to buy a $50 GC and combine the $10 GC bounus 3 days later? Any way you might as well buy a $50 GC (look for the thread on the free $10 card) and then buy this if you need one.. You might get the $10..

Is this better than the Firestick? I absolutely hate the Firestick. Slowest processor ever, constant stuttering, slow opening apps, occasional crashes. Horrible. Roku blows it out of the water. I hear this might be better?

Yes. The Fire TV is more like an android TV box and the Fire stick is more like a chromeast.

Here's an article and the product pages also detail the differences in specs.

I also own the Fire TV Stick and am underwhelmed by its performance. From what I've read about the regular Fire TV, it's a much smoother experience.

For anyone who does Jet deals, it can be had for cheaper over there with coupons and made even sweeter with the $20 AmEx Jet offer if you had signed up for that. I'm hoping Jet matches Amazon to $85 and then I'll probably buy from there.

Got one during the Black Friday sale when it was $75 and Sling TV had a promo where if you pre-paid for 3 months of service ($60) they emailed you a $50 off code towards the Fire TV. I love it and installing Kodi on it has made cutting cable TV a lot less painful. It's a pretty robust device.

You can't get NFL games on Kodi. The only reason I'm paying for cable.
Not sure if Sling TV has NFL games?

Actually if you compare apples to apples, the Fire Stick blows the Roku Stick out of the water. You want to talk about slow? Try the Roku Stick sometime.

It drives me nuts that it's been available for so long and Roku hasn't given it a proper hardware upgrade.
