To give some context before I delve into the Amazon Fire TV, I have been using streaming devices ever since the original Xbox on which I installed XBMC. I have a large collection of media on a PC which I use to stream to our main TV. Since the original Xbox I have used a variety of devices to stream media including Apple TV, more recent consoles and the Google Chromecast.

*** SET UP ***

The Amazon Fire TV includes the unit itself, along with a power adaptor, 2 x AAA batteries and a remote control. Before you can use this though, you will also need to purchase a HDMI cable (Amazon has these for around £5). You may also need to buy an optical cable, depending on your setup (more on that later). Setup was a cinch, plug the unit into your power supply, connect your Ethernet cable (if you want a wired connection) and connect the HDMI cable to your television.

It was nice to see that each Fire TV comes pre-configured for your Amazon account, so there's no need to login. Simply plug it in, update the software and off you go.

When the Fire TV finishes downloading and installing a software update on first boot, you will eventually arrive at the Home screen. Here you will find all of your Amazon Prime content (although at the moment there is no easy way to sort between what you get free with your Prime subscription and the paid content).

You can also install third-party apps. The only one I have installed at the time of review was Plex. Do note, that this is a paid application. It will cost you either £2.98 or 298 Amazon Coins. I went for the latter option as Amazon offer 89 coins with the Plex 'purchase', which means the effective cost is 209 coins (or £2.09).

Being a life-long Apple fan I'm shocked to find myself writing a review of the Amazon Fire TV - but it's simply the best set-top streaming device available (as of March 2015).

I've bought (and since eBay sold) two versions of the Apple TV, and neither came close to this.

As I work with technology, I'm aware at just how confusing it can be, so I'll steer clear of the Gigabytes and Megahertz and in common with Apple, focus on the actual experience rather than the technology.

First Impressions
The tiny matt black box looks like a CD box set, but at 4.5 inches square and half an inch thin - it's quite a bit smaller. Plug it into the TV via an HDMI cable (sadly not supplied), and it immediately connects to your router, and up popped a message on the screen....

"Hello John - do you want to log into your Amazon account?"

Hey! That's a tiny feature, but I was immediately pleased - the kind of attention to detail that's lovely to see. Clearly when you order the Fire, the actual device is registered to you, and "knows" who you are. You can of course connect to Amazon on another account (for example if you send it as a gift), but it's a lovely to find it quite literally works "right out of the box". Good to see also, when you fire it up, it has any Amazon video or music purchases available along with photos and videos.

After an initial re-boot to install the latest software it was ready to go, and boy did it go.

It's blisteringly fast.

What's it like?
Scrolling around the menus is smooth and incredibly fast, and press "Play" and there's absolutely no delay, no "downloading" message, in fact no waiting at all.

I originally bought a Fire Stick which for the price is superb. What bothered me though was the slowness in the menu. Just lacked snappiness and would hang from time to time. So I bought the Box and the response and feel is completely different. Far faster and a much better product. So even if you're not interested in gaming I would recommend you pay extra and get the box. Given how good value both units are I'd pick the Box over the Stick any day.

Hoping to ditch paying the ridiculous amount asked for by Sky TV I purchased one of these hoping to save money in the long run. I have never owned a streaming device before and thought this would be the most complete package.

To be honest, I wasn't wrong. Upon arrival I could see this TV box is a nice well made piece of kit, it feels very solid to hold, design has obviously been inspired by thoughts of "it should be heard but not seen", that's exactly what its accomplished for me, I see a single white LED, and nothing else. The remote is barely there as well, its little, light and only has 12 buttons, yet works brilliantly, its uncomplicated, easy to work out and within minutes I had used all of the buttons at least once, there is no fat on this device at all.Voice search is great to find the odd Amazon title but that's all it can search and as such as become redundant (will tell you why soon).

Here is what matters, watching TV and making use of the thing. Upon setting this up the first things I downloaded were Netflix, BBC iPlayer and BBC news. All of which work brilliantly and I find myself now obsessed with Netflix, after almost a month I have still yet to run out of things to watch, I just keep finding more, this is something that used to bug me about sky, hundreds of channels and nothing on.. However the use of this box to me runs out there. Amazon offers its own streaming service but here's what you have to do; subscribe to Amazon prime for £80 a year (still cheaper than sky) and everything you get for that is recognisable by the prime logo, and its ALL in standard definition. If you want HD, you have to pay extra per movie or per EPISODE for any series! This is ridiculous!
