This is the latest model of the Fire TV Stick. The previous iteration dropped even lower, but this updated one — which supports Wi-Fi 6 — is 40% off and marked down to one of the lowest prices we've seen outside of Black Friday.

The Fire Stick is one of the easiest streaming devices to use — and the most budget-friendly. Plus, it's arguably one of the easiest to set up. Plug the Fire TV Stick 4K into one of your 4K TV’s HDMI ports, and the streaming device will immediately search for your home’s Wi-Fi network.

It's simple and it's tidy — no crazy cords to wrangle. It comes with an intuitive remote that can cue up over 300,000 movie titles. Plus, it's Alexa voice-control ready; use smart devices, get movie suggestions and shop the Amazon storefront from your TV. (Alexa, please shop popcorn poppers and weighted blankets!) You’ll find fun interactive settings like pop-up results for actor and director names via IMDb. Need to check in on news, weather or sports scores? Alexa is at your service.

(Got a non-4K TV? Consider the regular Amazon Fire TV Stick, which is also on sale.)

When over 26,000 five-star fans praise this gadget for elevating their entertainment game, we want in.

One fan raved that the Fire Stick 4K transformed an old TV into an entertainment powerhouse. "This turned my slow LG smart TV into a streaming machine. I love the remote and how easily it pairs with the TV. Bluetooth pairing with headphones is perfect. Will be buying more of these."

Even if you don't have a 4K TV, the Fire Stick still makes a difference. "I love this Fire Stick. It's so much faster than the old version. Worth every penny. Can't wait to upgrade my TV so that it can truly be used the way it was meant to be used."

If you're worried about upgrading, don't be, this fan said: "I love my new Fire TV Stick! I had an old one and wanted to upgrade, and this is perfect. It remembered and uploaded all my streaming channels, it couldn't have been easier."

"I'm not very tech savvy, but this was extremely easy to set up and also to operate," said a fourth reviewer. "It's 'plug and play' easy. I purchased it as a way to watch streaming services so I could discontinue paying for overpriced cable service. The remote is easy to use and does everything I need it to do. I also have an AppleTV device on another set, and I feel like the Fire Stick remote is easier to use and has volume control. ... So long, cable TV!"

Shoppers did note that they wished the cord was "just a few inches longer," but added that this isn't a deal-breaker, especially when considering how affordable the device is.

Another fan said they wished a power source wasn't necessary: "The only thing I wish is if it could be completely powered by my TV, but that is more of a problem with my TV USB than the product."

This is a foolproof, easy-to-use streaming device that tucks in nicely behind your TV and stays out of sight.
