I was pretty excited a week ago when you could score a 24-inch Insignia Fire TV for the same price. This is 35 percent larger!
Like Roku TVs, a Fire TV comes with lots of streaming apps: Netflix, Hulu, HBO and so on. (No YouTube, though, which is a definite deal breaker for some.) And you get the benefit of an Alexa-enabled remote, so you can just tell the TV which channel or show you want.
What's more, Fire TV affords access to various Alexa skills and a huge library of Amazon apps. For example, you could play the excellent party game Quiplash -- something Roku can't do.
The screen itself tops out at 720p, or a 1,366x768-pixel resolution. This means it's not ideally suited for computer use. But don't let that "low" resolution dissuade you: At this size, 1080p isn't really necessary to enjoy HD goodness.
Crazy-good deal. Crazy.
