    Best Buy has it on sale for 125 in store as well. Got one when I saw it and have to say it's a major upgrade from my 3rd gen. Love this thing. The Siri commands impressed me and that's hard to do

    I love mine, it replaced my HTPC since Plex is now a native app on it. I got mine from hhgregg when they had it for $116.

    I think Fry's has had it at this price for a while now. Either that or they go on sale pretty often. While I do overall like the device, there are a few things I can't stand. Some popular video apps for other idevices (Comcast Xfinity TV Go and Amazon Video) aren't available. And you cannot airplay those type of apps to it. Siri I have found useless for it as it doesn't work when searching for things within apps like Netflix or Plex. Sure I can have Siri launch Netflix, but the 'typing' capabilities on the remote are so horrid that searching is crazy retarded. Suppose this works well if you are deep in the Apple ecosystem and just want to search through what is in your iTunes library.

    Aside from that though, I like it. Plex is much better than fireTV and Samsungs SmartTV app. Netflix and HBO Go all work well.

    There are a few things incorrect with this post -

    Siri does in-fact show if Netflix is an option when searching for a movie. If it's not on Netflix it just won't show that as an option - maybe thats why you're getting confused?

    Secondly, I stream Amazon video from my macbook pro through airplay to my Apple TV. If there is an app on the phone or iPad and you are talking about streaming those over airplay - I can't comment on that because I haven't tried that. But I do in fact stream Amazon prime over airplay - I just don't own a iPad

    I hate Amazon video quality, I know not all of their stuff sucks but it seems like all the shows or movies I want to watch suck.

    This.

    Amazon Prime does nothing to improve the situation because you still have to pay for anything worth watching.

    You can put XBMC on these


    Also, wish I got it for this price, $25 saved is $25 saved (I got mine shortly after launch)

    Huh, I actually like the selection that Amazon has. I'm a big fan of the Fire TV + voice remote.

    Yeah, Amazon has pretty much closed the gap, aside from its own series, but Man in the high castle was a very good start. 4k on the firetv too.
