Disclaimer: thank you very much to The Ideas Network for sending me this. Although initially I did not request it, it has been a pleasure to review. What follows is my honest opinion.
Good morning; how has your day been so far?
I was recently sent the Amazon Fire Stick to review; not knowing much about it, I was at first curious..
A Firestick is essentially a memory you can plug into your TV (but not your laptop, due to a different output signal thing). Assuming you have a Smart TV, this gives you access to a variety of internet-based things; iplayer, Netflix, etc. Sounds good to me!
Firstly, I really liked the packaging, as you can see above. There’s just something so pleasing about this-how everything is in this box, effectively utilising the space given. Because all good things come in good packages, right?
For the sake of this review, I’d like to consider this as a work in progress, as you can see below..
Now, I will admit, I haven’t yet managed to set this up, but had to write this review, due to other time commitments. (Student/Blogger/Columnist/Freelancer etc!) But there’s the problem; the setup instructions were seemingly really complex. You have to plug the Stick in your TV, a plug to the mains, register via an account, and still have logins for the apps. Whew! On this basis, a Firestick is not something that’s necessarily for me-although you can take it with you, wherever you go. I think it would make a great gift for a university student, or somebody setting up their first home however. I just wish that it had a simpler set up, and that it could be used for your laptop!
What do you think of Amazon Firesticks?
