The irony the OP is called TEMPOREL b/c the RDF Temporal Agents are about to light up this thread w/ their "it was cheaper on Black Friday" comments.

Typical sale price is $99 CAD. Typical .com/US sale price is $75 USD so $100 CAD is where it should be priced.

Pretty sure it was $209 just a couple days ago? There was a large thread about it.

I bought mine for $90 at Staples during BF. Old remote though.

Really eh? They should call this 4K Ultimate or something then.

FYI, $30 off $50 (coupon code HOLIDAY30) when you place your first order with Instacart. I noticed Staples is a partner and they have the FireCube listed for $115. After service fees and taxes, the total works out to about $100 (I live in Alberta).

You can connect a webcam and use it for video calls. It doesn't sound like much but it's a feature sadly missing from most streaming devices and smart TVs

I was going to buy from Staples on Black Friday, but held back due to the old remote.
Will wait a few months for it to hit $99.99 again and use a $10 coupon when Staples has the new version in stock.

Note: No AV1 codec, no WiFi 6, no gigabit ethernet (only 100mpbs), no USB-A port, no HDMI cable,

I just picked one up from bestbuy tonight.

I agree. It makes Kodi a much more pleasant navigation experience over both the 4K and 4K max. 4k was brutal. The 4K max is decent and somewhat acceptable. But the cube runs it like a champ. Might end up keeping it. Too bad I can't return the 4K Max.

Installed a Voice Search bridge so that voice commands can search SmartTube Next instead of bringing up the native YouTube app. Pretty nice being able to tell Alexa to search YouTube videos without having to use the remote.
teksavvy sucks
