Didn’t know much about this TV, had interest in it, the Rtings says this below. But the price.

The Amazon Fire TV 4-Series is a very basic, entry-level 4k TV. Along with the Fire TV Omni, it's one of the first Amazon-branded TVs. It's best-suited for a dark room, as the VA panel delivers deep blacks but can't get bright enough to overcome glare in a bright room. It has fantastic low input lag for gaming, but it doesn't support any advanced gaming features. The Fire TV smart interface is easy to use, and it has a great selection of additional apps, so you're sure to find your favorite streaming service. Unfortunately, it's not a very good TV overall, with poor viewing angles, mediocre gradient handling, and a slow response time. It has terrible accuracy out-of-the-box, and it doesn't support any calibration at all, so there's no way to correct the issues.

At this relative price point it looks like you're way better off going with the hisense deal.

Just don’t. Get a Fire Stick for $40 and a dumb TV for cheaper. The processor in these smart TVs is really slow so the Fire TV interface feels very laggy.

I did not know they made tv now! It's probably a rebrand? It look a lot like my TCL, at least.

Wow. I would avoid and go with a Hisense instead at this price point.

They're a rebrand with the FireOs baked in. Some are Toshiba some are TCL and there are probably others. Might be convenient to not have another little box using up an HDMI port but in a couple of years time the built in FireTV hardware will be far out of date and then it will be annoying to have to navigate their increasingly ad ridden home screen to switch to an HDMI port every time you turn on the TV to access a more recent box.

Lower picture quality than Hisense. I came to Best Buy and see both of them and decided to go with the Hisense.

Haven't bought a TV since LED first came out.

If I'm looking to buy a 85 inch TV, what price will be a good deal? With prices fluctuating I can't wrap my head around what a good deal is.

A) for regular LED
B) for QLED
C) for OLED

This is true if any smart TV now. Ask me about my LG TV that supports only WebOS version 1.

My plan was to pick up a 50" tv during the BD sales...

I did look at these Fire tv's...but still haven't ordered anything.

I think I'm going with:

Hisense 50 in. 4K Roku Smart Television 50R63G at Costco.

https://www.costco.ca/.product.8686350.html

$466 plus $29 for the additional 3 year warranty seems like the best "bang for the buck" right now.

I don't think that there are any dumb TVs that are current models. More's the pity.

I think that you can get dumb industrial panels, say for signage. But they are not cheap.

I’m looking for a pc monitor that doubles
as a tv. Would the 42 inch be any good for that?

Well go figure, the built-in Fire TV OS in my 32" Insignia TV is actually just as snappy, if not faster, than my 4K firestick.

It's worth nothing that my TV is a 2021 model though.

I actually bought a 43” Fire Tv Omni for the guest room this week.

It’s picture is absolutely nowhere close to my Sony OLED that is in the family room but it’s more than good enough for it’s use.

The primary use case for me is to watch streaming shows while using the rowing machine. Cool option that the Fire TV has is that you can pair Bluetooth headphones with it to watch not only the streaming service but also any other input into the television.

At this price it’s pretty much disposable and can also serve as a workable giant monitor for the desk in there as well.

Set reasonable expectations and you won’t be disappointed.
