    Upgraded from the 1st Generation 4k stick. Noticeable performance improvements, upgraded Android version along with support for Dolby Atmos on Netflix.However I have lost Disney+ Dolby Atmos support that I had with the previous version. Hopefully an update will resolve it soon as all the other apps are working fine and detecting my Dolby Atmos setup without an issue. It’ll get 5* once Disney+ has its Atmos support fixedUpdate: Dolby Atmos has been fixed for Disney+ by the most recent firmware update that has come out. 5* now

    Excellent product that is easy to use and setup. Initially I bought this product to have rigged up to another TV in the house and to also have it as a spare device to use on my travels. I currently use an Nvidia Shield as my main permanent streaming device for Apps as I much prefer having streaming devices compared to using Apps that come preinstalled on smart TVs due to the nature of manufacturers of smart TVs always having to wait longer for them to update their Apps, or even stopping support for them in some cases.By having the latest Apps with updates being more frequent and stable on the FireStick 4K Max, this offers a far better performance and viewing experience for the end user.Performance wise, the FireStick 4K Max is excellent and runs like a charm. Really happy with this purchase and highly recommend it to anyone. This device definitely packs a punch in its performance and operability. The menu/software system and the user interface is so easy to navigate and the Apps on offer are perfect for my streaming needs.On a personal level, I love the fact that I can also run my VPN software and use most UK apps when abroad, or visiting friends domestically on my travels. Amazon also offer an ethernet adapter that can be used with this product offering a stable ethernet connection which I have also purchased and use at home, whilst I can use the Wifi connection when on my travels.All in all the FireStick 4K Max is a fantastic product upgrade on previous FireSticks that offers excellent performance, connectivity, and speeds and that are on par and so much better to other similar Android TV boxes and products (8gb Storage & 2GB RAM) on the market that are more expensive.This latest device is Spot On and A*****

    I had Sky Q with Q minis on 4 TVs. This was costing £100 per month. I decided to save money and stream television instead. I already had a variety of Fire TV sticks and an “Ultimate” stick on the main TV. I swapped this for the new Max stick.The first thing I noticed was an astonishing increase in internet speed. The BT smart hub 2 is in the room next door. The speed I got with the old stick was 49 Mbits, the new stick gets 390!The other noticable improvement it the control of the TV and soundbar My Q Acoustic soundbar has been difficult to pair with Sky Q remote. Control is now seamless. I strongly recommend this upgrade.

    In short, a great streaming device, for the price and functionality, it cannot be beaten.My Fire TV Stick 4K Max arrived today and replaces the brilliant Fire TV Stick 4K, which has performed very well since 2018. Before I look at the improvements, here is a quick primer for those new to a Fire TV Stick.The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the top in the range of Amazon streamers. It makes your TV a smart TV, or makes your smart TV even smarter! It allows you to access your online TV services, such as Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, BritBox, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, 4oD, My5 and so on, there are many more. You also get apps, music services, games and so much more.If you already have a Fire TV Stick 4K and are thinking about an upgrade, the following should assist you. The contents are the same as the 4K stick, which is the Fire TV Stick, HDMI adapter, USB cable, batteries, power adapter and a couple of leaflets. You can buy the ethernet adapter separately (which I use and works well with this new device). Visually, the only difference is the remote, which has more buttons and is 1-2mm shorter and 2g lighter than the previous model. The four application buttons on the remote are very responsive (you get Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Music). If you subscribe to all these services, as I do, they are very useful. Their usefulness will obviously diminish if you do not subscribe to all of the services. Alexa on this new remote seems quicker and more responsive, the blue button really stands out. The Live TV button will not get used much in my home, but it is a useful feature, if the offering increases in channel choice.During installation, I was able to select an installation “template” from an existing Fire TV Stick I owned, which was a great advantage, installing the apps, but required manual sign-ins for each app. The software updates went in fine, which I cannot say for the remote, as it updated a while later and the select button then became unresponsive, which made me fear that the update had been terminal, but proper function returned after a few minutes. When installed, you will notice that the Fire TV 4K Max is a good bit faster than the 4K Stick. Switching between apps is quicker, with the app buttons on the remote, it is instant! There is 2GB of RAM and a faster processor in the 4K Max. The old 4K Stick steamed very well, this new version builds on that, with apps being far more responsive. I use an app to view photos and videos on my NAS drive and it is this area that the performance gain is most noticeable.The interface is just about the same, albeit the software is a different version. Having WiFi 6 is handy, as that equips you for your current or future router (as already stated, I use an ethernet cable, so have not tested the WiFi).The settings contain some useful features, such as Audio and Video Diagnostics, HDR can be turned off and the ability to use PCM (for older TV’s), Dolby Digital Plus and Dolby Digital. This is an important consideration, as one of my old 4K Sticks would cause lip-syn problems if it was not set to PCM on an older TV in the kitchen.I have an Alexa controlled camera, which allowed me to try the Picture-in-Picture feature (photograph attached). This is a useful feature, with the voice commands “Alexa, maximise camera”, “Alexa, switch to full screen”, “Alexa, dismiss picture-in-picture” giving you control, along with a long press of the home button giving you the manual control of the camera.There is a lot to upgrade for, including Netflix getting a boost with Dolby Atmos support and the USB port can support external storage. The best reason for me, is the increased performance and agility of this Fire TV. When the Fire TV Stick 4K launched, I replaced all of my previous Fire TV’s with it, as it was such a leap in performance. This time round, we have both performance and features that have been updated. I have told myself that I will not be upgrading all of my TV’s this time round, but I know I will end up replacing all in the near future!

    The media could not be loaded.

     The orders include the 2 AAA batteries, an HDMI extension, a USB cable, a power adapter, and an Alexa Voice Remote, while Amazon preloads localised applications.The Fire TV Stick 4K Max has several enhancements over its predecessor that, according to Amazon, add up to a 40% boost in performance evaluation.The Fire TV Stick 4K Max has 2GB RAM third times the amount of RAM as the Fire TV Stick 4K.Similarly, the new Fire TV Stick’s CPU and GPU cores are 100 MHz quicker than the previous model.The Fire TV Stick 4K Max, according to Amazon, features a MediaTek MT8696 SoC and a different GPU than the Fire TV Stick 4K.The new SoC enables Wi-Fi 6 connection, allowing the Fire TV Stick 4K Max to stream 4K video at higher download speeds.To make use of the streaming stick’s higher download rates, you’ll need a Wi-Fi 6 router.Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision, HDMI ARC, HDR, and HDR10+ are also supported with the Fire TV Stick 4K Max.Aside from the improved speed, the user will see a smart screen UI that is nearly comparable to the previous version.The Max, on the other hand, comes with a new remote that supports Alexa voice control.Wi-Fi 6 offers faster speeds and better performance than Wi-Fi 5, particularly in congested networks, and Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the first media streamer under £100 to support the standard.Support up to 5.1 HDMI audio pass-through, Dolby Atmos, 7.1 surround sound, 2-channel stereo, and Dolby Atmos.Dolby Atmos is available on selected Prime Video, Netflix, and Disney+ movies when connected to compatible equipment.

    I have had almost all versions of Fire TV sticks except the Cube. After having used them you just get used to their menus and interface and cant be bothered to learn when you buy new TV’s so I just plug one of these in.What I have noticed is a Fire TV stick will always be stuck on the same underlying base Android OS version even though the frontend shares the same skin. Few Examples:Fire TV Stick – 2nd Gen (2016-2019) – Fire OS 5 (Android 5.1)Fire TV – 3rd Gen (2017) – Fire OS 6 (Android 7.1)FireTV Stick 4K (2018) – Fire OS 6 (Android 7.1)Fire TV Stick Lite – 1st Gen (2020)- Fire OS 7 (Android 9)FireTV Stick 4K Max (2021) – Fire OS 7 (Android 9)As you can see from above list FireTV Stick 4K was due for an upgrade. New android versions will provide better 3rd party app support. For example I used mouse app that allowed me to use the Fire TV remote to move cursor around the screen to click buttons. This allowed me to use various android APK’s not designed for Fire OS interface (Hik-connect, smart control, CCTV, apps). Not to mention newer OS is faster as well.I have Facebook Portal that also runs on android base OS and I always found its interface much faster and responsive than all the previous Fire TV sticks. You click on Netflix app and within an instant you are in, something I never experienced on the pre-2020 Fire TV sticks. The new FireTV stick 4K Max is definitely nippier when moving around the menus.Background and benefits of Fire TV OS and user interface applicable to all Fire TV ecosystem:I originally bought into the Google ecosystem to the point where I refused to buy anything with Alexa in it like the Ring bell. Then we were provided with a FireTV stick with a new Sky TV connection in our holiday home in India. I set it up just for the sake of it and fell in love with it. I will list some of its benefits,1. Nice sized remote, supports full functions, including Alexa with a button (Alexa is not listening all the time)2. Remote controller controls the TV’s on/off with source selection and volume control with the built in infrared.3. The interface is zappy, intuitive and simple.4. Been using for years, never seen it lag beyond reason or crash.5. Better than your TV’s smart interface. (I own/owned 4K – Samsung, LG, Toshiba, Unknown/ Sony Android TV’s)6. Supports various apps like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Sky News, etc., in 4K and more can be downloaded from built in store.7. Based off android so you can side-load several unsupported apps too,a. I use Hik-Connect to view all my 4K Hikvision cameras spread across two countries.b. I use Synology NAS apps – DS Video, DS Photo to view my personal video and photo library.c. Installed IP TV apps, that allows you to view 1000’s of live view channels. Follow YouTube for instructions.d. Mouse Toggle APK (search Google) allows to switch to mouse mode. Useful for ‘unsupported’ android apps.8. Unlike other Smart TV’s the Fire TV receives regular updates so you can be certain you get best supported apps.9. Will breathe new life in your old non-smart TV’s. We had a 44″ Samsung Plasma TV that lay unused for over 10 years and with this Fire TV stick, it works like a brand new TV!I have now purchased and installed Fire TV stick for all the TV’s I have access to, including one at my work place. Its so small, you can carry it with you and use it to give you access to your customised entertainment at hotels, relatives place, etc., without having to share your passwords on TV’s not owned by you.I mostly prefer to get this Fire TV stick 4K model as opposed to the non 4k 3rd gen just to be future proof. Even though the back-end Android OS version are different between the non-4K (Ver. 5.x) and 4K model (Ver. 6.x), they both work and appear the same. I find the 4K Max model to be a bit faster in unsupported apps but works just fine for the standard apps.Remember to use the original supplied USB Power adapter for full speed performance. I was using another 2.4A USB adapter and discovered it would lag or stutter while playing HEVC or some HD or 4K videos. You see not all USB sockets deliver same power regardless of what the label says!

    Definitely meets my expectation.You can feel the difference and a bit snappier and more refine system as compared to my old 4k stick which i bought way back 2019.Some says no difference but if your firestick/tv enthusiast you can clearly see the difference.

    I have bought most of the Fire TV sticks that have been produced except I didn’t bother with the ‘Cube’ (I already have Amazon speakers in every room and don’t need yet another ‘Alexa’) and the last ‘TV Stick Lite’ (I just didn’t see the point of that one) and to say they keep getting better is an understatement.At any one time I have the latest and the previous version on the 2 TV’s, one is 4K the other is just Full HD.The main problem, if you want to call it that, is that you are stuck with the Android operating system that is on the stick when you buy it, you can’t upgrade it, but that is similar to phones, although you may get one operating system upgrade if you are lucky, but these don’t cost a fortune at around the £50 ish mark, which is nothing really for an electronic gadget and this seems to be Amazons philosophy, “Keep them affordable”, and that will do for me – Thank You.The main upgrades on this is a faster CPU at 1.8 GHz, and a faster GPU at 750 MHz plus the memory has been upgraded to 2GB (0.5GB more than the previous 4K Fire TV Stick), this all makes for a faster and smoother operation, and it is quiet noticeable, although not a huge leap.It now includes support for W-Fi 6, which is just starting to take off, and this is the only Fire TV Stick to support this at present, plus Picture-in-Picture which was also missing from the previous TV Stick 4K.The Operating System is now Fire OS 7 (based on Android 9) and upgrade from the previous Fire TV Stick 4K which used Fire OS 6 (based on Android 7.1).You get everything you could want in the box which includes : Fire TV Stick 4K Max, Remote, Power Adaptor 3-Pin UK Plug, Lead (USB 3.0 Plug to USB TV Stick Plug), Short HDMI Male To Female Extender (to enable the Fire TV Stick to moved away from TV socket), two Amazon brand AAA batteries for the remote, and instructions.The supports Alexa voice control (Press the ‘Blue’ Button to activate it) and besides the usual five buttons it has ‘Mute’ and ‘Guide’ and at the bottom has four coloured dedicated preset buttons for Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Music, this saves you having to find the functions on the main menu itself and is a great time saver to locate these services.PLEASE NOTE : If like me you have a previous version DO NOT be tempted to use the Power Supply from a previous version to power it, as the power supply on this has a higher power rating and you could end up with function and/or playback (especially 4K) issues.Use each TV Stick (or anything else for that matter) with the items that came in the box with it !If you have used a Fire TV Stick before you will recognise the screen, although it has been slightly modified to make it more pleasing to the eye.Picture-in-Picture is very useful if you want to say, have a view from a Camera inset on the screen whilst watching something else, you can also control this feature via Amazon Voice Commands such as “Alexa, dismiss picture-in-picture” to get rid of the PIP view, or “Alexa, switch to full screen”.I love this version over the older version as it does that little bit more whilst also improving on functions that were on the old 4K stick.You don’t have to have a 4K TV to enjoy this, it will work just as well on a 1080p (Full HD) TV as well but with obviously no 4K functions, but given the fact to will probably upgrade to 4K with your next TV it makes sense to but this version anyway.It is well worth noting though, that to get the best from this stick it is almost essential to subscribe Amazon Prime, as besides the benefit of usually next day deliveries on your orders (which is what I first subscribed to it for) and that if you want Netflix or the Disney+ you will be required to pay an extra subscription for each of those as well, they are NOT free.I cannot recommend this version enough, and it is real value for money in my opinion as it will improve your TV’s functions, even if it is a brand spanking new Smart TV !5 Stars all day long !!!

    I have a 4k tv that does not display HDR at all well ,rather like viewing through a dishcloth with dark screen and washed out colours. When I read that that this new version of the the firestick had added the ability to totally turn off HDR I was thrilled and ordered one. Well it has not disappointed in any way. Set up was a breeze and the whole thing is very responsive. Having turned off HDR the difference is incredible. Now any UHD HDR content is bright and crisp so for that reason alone I am so pleased to have bought it. Also iPlayer is playing UHD content flawlessly. Apart from my reasons for buying it maybe if you haven’t got the HDR issue that I had then not really worth the upgrade.
