Control over a wide range of home cinema devices, pleasing picture quality

If you’re after for a streaming player that can play content from all the major apps in good quality and grants control over your home cinema set up via your voice, the Fire TV Cube ticks all those boxes. The omission of an HDMI cable is odd omission, and if you're not fussed about controlling your home cinema devices, the Fire TV Stick 4K does a similar job for a lot less.

A great buy — if you don’t have the original

from The Next Web

The Cube is an excellent all-around smart device that offers sophisticated control of your home theater. If you wanted both an Amazon Echo and a Fire TV stick, this makes a good combination of the two. Still, if you already have the previous generation Cube, you probably don’t need to upgrade.

We started testing the Fire TV Cube expecting to find a decent video streamer, but to discover that it’s also a rather effective voice-controlled universal remote is a nice surprise. It may struggle with some products and systems out there, but in testing, we were delighted by this value-added feature. Even without Alexa voice control of your home cinema system, the Fire TV Cube is a very good video streamer. Ultimately, the Apple TV 4K offers a better picture performance, but the Cube isn’t far behind. Given its lower price, that’s very impressive indeed.

The entertainment control center we've waited decades for

from Digital Trends

At $120 the Fire TV Cube isn’t exactly cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. It’s fun, it’s functional, and it does everything a streaming set-top device needs to do, and more. Buy with confidence!

For the few, not the many

from Daily Express

If you’re looking for the most complete Fire TV experience available right now, the Fire TV Cube is it. The hands-free control is brilliant and asking your AI assistant to switch between HDMI connections, control the volume, and dimming your smart lightning before settling in for a movie night feels truly futuristic.

The new Amazon Fire TV Cube is much improved over last year’s model. It now has YouTube and YouTube TV, support for Dolby Vision and HDR+, and a lot more video viewing commands than before. With a hexa-core processor on board, it’s also a lot faster at responding to your commands. You can use it as an Echo too, with the ability to make voice calls and control your smart home.

Control your TV and Sky box with Alexa

from Pocket-lint

A neat solution to voice-control your TV and Sky box, but the setup is a hit-and-miss experience and with the Fire TV Stick 4K at less than half the price, it's tough to slate or recommend the new Cube.

As streaming products go, it’s hard to fault the Fire TV Cube. It unifies the key devices hooked up to your TV and presents a fast, shiny interface to pick out most of the content you might want to stream. The Alexa integration is really good and something that’s less of a gimmick than elsewhere. I have a pet camera with Alexa integrated, which definitely feels tacked on.

The Fire TV Cube's voice controls are on another level from other streamers, though some limitations still apply.
