Amazon Fire TV Stick 2 with Alexa announced for the UK and Germany

As expected, Amazon has announced that the 2nd generation Fire TV Stick, which was released in the US last October, is coming to the UK and Germany. The quad-core streaming stick is now available for pre-order in the UK for £39.99 and in Germany for 39,99 €. In addition to being a much more capable device than its predecessor, thanks to its quad-core 1.3 Ghz Mediatek 8127D processor, Mali-450 GPU, and 802.11ac WiFi, the all-new Fire TV Stick 2 comes with a voice remote and full Alexa capabilities.

Logitech K400 Plus Keyboard w/ Touchpad on sale for $17.99 at Best Buy

logitech-k400-plus-header

The Logitech K400 Plus keyboard with built-in touchpad is on sale for $17.99 at Best Buy. That matches the lowest price this keyboard has ever been. Many Fire TV owners, including myself, swear by this keyboard as the best bang-for-your-buck keyboard for couch use. This keyboard uses a wireless USB dongle to connect, so it works with the 1st and 2nd-gen Fire TV. It will also work with the Fire TV Stick 2 if you use an OTG adapter.

1st-gen Amazon Dash reduced to just $3.29, down from $50

The 1st generation Amazon Dash has been reduced to just $3.29 as an add-on item. This is the little known wand shaped device that Amazon makes which allows you to order products by either speaking into the device or using it to scan a bar code. The Amazon Dash originally sold for $49.99, but now that a new model has been released, the old one is being marked down significantly. If you’re an Amazon Fresh subscriber, you can still get the new model for free, but if you aren’t, and want a simple way to order everyday items, now’s your chance to get the Dash for a steep discount.

Amazon 7″ Fire Tablet is on sale for $39.99

Amazon just put their 7″ Fire Tablet on sale for $39.99. Outside of Prime Day and Black Friday, that’s pretty much as low as this tablet gets. If you want double the storage, the 16GB model is also on sale for $59.99, but remember these tablets do have microSD card slots to expand the internal storage. If you’ve got kids, you may want to consider getting the Kids Edition tablet on sale for $79.99 instead. It’s the exact same model as the regular 7″ tablet, but comes with a 2 year worry-free replacement guarantee for when your little one decides it would make a perfect surfboard and cracks the screen. This sale is expected to last through Saturday.

Logitech Harmony Smart Remote w/ Hub on sale for $69.99 — Lowest Price Ever

logitech-harmony-header

The Logitech Harmony Remote w/ Smart Hub just went on sale for $69.99. This matches the lowest price this remote has ever been, which was during this past Cyber Monday. Harmony remotes are among the few universal remotes that can control the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. The included hub connects to the Fire TV via bluetooth and the remote relays button press through the hub to the Fire TV. The remote connects via RF, so you still don’t have to physically point the remote anywhere, just like with the Fire TV default remote. Additionally, Harmony created a pair of Alexa Skills, so you can have limited control of your TV with your voice through an Alexa-enabled device.

Logitech’s new K410 keyboard w/ Trackpad is on sale for $17.99 — Today Only

The newly released Logitech K410 Keyboard w/ Touchpad is on sale today for $17.99. That’s the lowest price this keyboard has ever been. This is the successor to the Logitech K400 which many Fire TV owners, including myself, consider to be the best livingroom keyboard for use with the Amazon Fire TV. Unlike the Logitech K400 Plus, this new K410 has the exact same key layout as the original K400, which I consider to be slightly better than the K400 Plus’s layout. While the key layout and functionality of the K410 and K400 are identical, the new K410 has a glossy black finish which is sure to attract fingerprints and smudges. For that reason, I personally rank the K400 on top, followed by this new K410, and then the K400 Plus.

All of Logitech’s “K” keyboards use their USB unifying receiver, which comes included, so you’ll need an OTG cable to use these keyboards with a Fire TV Stick. This sale ends at midnight tonight.

Refurbished Fire TV 1 and Amazon Tap on sale on Woot

Woot currently has the refurbished 1st-gen Fire TV and the refurbished Amazon Tap on sale. The refurbished Fire TV 1 is $52.99, which is $3 more than the lowest price I’ve ever seen for it. If you’re looking for something a bit more powerful than the Fire TV Stick but don’t want to spend the money for the Fire TV 2, the Fire TV 1 is still a very capable device. Plus, it’s the only model that has an optical audio port, which many can’t live without. The refurbished Amazon Tap is $79.99, which is not that enticing of a price, considering the brand new Tap was on sale for just $10 more just a few days ago.

Amazon Fire TV Game Controller on sale and includes 550 Amazon Coins

Amazon is running a new promotion which gives you 550 Amazon Coins for free (a $5 value) when you purchase the Fire TV Game Controller. This is a great deal because the game controller is already on sale for $39.99, which is down from its regular price of $49.99. The combination of the sale price and free coins makes this the best deal ever for the official game controller. Unfortunately, click the terms and conditions link on the promotion page takes you to information about Amazon coins, and not this specific promotion, so there’s no way to know how long this deal will last. After purchasing the game controller, your 550 coins will automatically be added to your account’s coin balance within 48 hours.
