    "The Fire TV with 4K Ultra HD and Alexa Voice Remote does not really work as a replacement to a smart TV. Instead, it is more like a replacement for the fire stick. The interface is not intuitive and does not flow well. There are ads all over the home screen. For the price of this media player, you would think you wouldn't be bombarded with ads to the point that it is obtrusive to what you are trying to do."

    "We actually didn't have a tv for a longtime, until my daughter hit her teen years. Then she wanted all of the technology that everyone else had. So, I relented and got a tv and a roku. We are totally satisfied. The quality is great, though you do have to pay some subscription fees (for the channels that we like to use). The only weird thing about it is that there is no on/off button and so we have to pull out the plug when we're not using it. Other than that, we're happy with it. "

    "As a long TiVo user I'm am thoroughly disappointed by how bad the BOLT turned out. While the app support is nice everything else is a mess. The OTA reception is horrible compared to my old TiVo, and I have to unplug it and restart it at least once a week. Plus look at it, I feel like if I accidentally put something on top of it I'll break it because it does not lie flat and instead has that weird bend. I cannot recommend this at all."

    "Roku is fabulous for saving money and time! I love that there's no need for a bulky DVR on my entertainment stand, just plug in the Roku, subscribe to some streaming apps and I'm good to go! I watch what I want, mostly when I want. It's great, quick, and easy to use."
