After struggling with a ChromeCast for years, I didn't have high expectations for the FireStick, however it turned out to be totally amazing. So incredibly easy to set up and just as easy to add the streaming apps I wanted to install. I primarily purchased the FireStick for business travel, so I simply plug it into the motel room's TV HDMI port, connect it to my mobile phone hotspot, and I'm streaming my favorite shows in no time flat. The simple remote control is a must, and is probably the primary feature that makes the system so easy and functional. Very impressive, and at the right price point for the features and high build quality.
