Pros & Cons

Pros

Pleasantly surprised! Several unexpected features. I am honestly very pleasantly surprised with how much I like this TV. I put this in the bedroom of my camper and we absolutely love the size (roughly 10 feet away from us). As far as clarity goes, I believe 720 is plenty for this screen size. I’m a bit of a TV snob and the lower clarity is not noticeable in this size. Lastly, I have been very pleased with the WiFi reception of the built in FireTV. It actually works a lot better than the USB plug in external fire sticks, for whatever reason. Super handy in campgrounds with weak WiFi or when using my phones hotspot. Great buy!

Great picture, sound & speed. We have a massive turn-of-the-milennium oak entertainment center with a 36" cubby for a TV. We've been looking for years for a larger TV to fit the area. We found this one, measured a million times and decided to risk it. It fits, just barely: there's about 1/8" gap on either side of the TV. We were pleasantly surprised to get it almost 2 weeks earlier than expected. We got it set up yesterday and after a little internet digging, found out how to scan for & watch local antenna channels (it's not like old TV - you use the FireTV menu to choose your "live" channels.) Other reviews have complained about poor sound quality or slow FireTV speed, but we're extremely pleased with the stereo sound quality and don't find the speed to be any slower than our newest Firestick. Very pleased overall, but the price blew us away. When we bought our first 24" flat-screen (with no HDMI ports), we paid more than double than we did for this 39" Smart TV!

Great Value. Wanted to replace the small TV in the kitchen with a Smart TV, allowing me to rid my counter of a cable box, and this TV fit the bill. The size is perfect, I was able to add a hard drive via one of the three HDMI ports making it into a full functioning computer, it is nice and light and is easily mounted using a small mount. The picture is what I would expect from a larger more expensive television, and the colors are beautiful. My only problem is that I can not get HBO on it because currently Amazon and HBO are contracted with each other and this is an Amazon Fire TV (so check with your cable provider). That being said, I watch Prime, Netflix, HULU, Pluto TV and a host of other Apps. The space is limited for your apps, so I only downloaded the apps I know I want like FOX News, News12, Lifetime, etc. I am not sure if there is a way to expand the app storage, but that is a problem for another day.

Cons

Not as "smart" as it could be. I was on the fence regarding buying a TV for my kitchen for a year. I kept going back and forth between a 24" Fire TV and a separate 24" TV and a Fire Stick 4K or Roku. But, ultimately decided on this product due to it going on sale for under $100 with a free Echo Dot. I slightly regret that decision, despite it only being a kitchen TV. As another person said, the interface is slow and doesn't like to open the apps smoothly on the first try. Also, I paired the TV with my kitchen Echo but I can't get it to respond to voice commands at all. I have another TV with a Fire Stick and a Roku TV that both respond perfectly to commands through Alexa, but this Fire TV won't even so much as turn on/off by voice command. The remote is nice, and the picture is not bad at all, but the software hiccups are a serious bummer.

Mixed review. Mostly satisfied. Some apps don't always work. Sometimes have to choose an app multiple times before it actually works, others never do. Picture and sound are satisfactory.

OK TV but slow software and mediocre sound. Picture quality is fine for the price. Speakers aren’t great and don’t sound good. FireTV interface is very slow. The hardware in the TV is old even though it’s a 2020 model. A Fire Stick 4K from 2018 (sometimes on sale for $25) is magnitudes faster. Ok if the TV will only be used occasionally, but there is significant lag, slow loading times for apps, and dropped frames. Sometimes if you hit the pause button it’ll take a second for it to process. Remote control is nice that it has voice search and shortcut buttons for apps like Netflix.

Get this on Amazon.
