The 3rd-gen Fire TV Cube has been out for half a year but Amazon hasn’t given buyers much of a discount off its $139.99 retail price. A small number of lucky people were able to snag the new device for $99.99 through a targeted introductory promotion at launch but the lowest price it has been for most people is $124.99 when it has gone on sale. Today is the first day that the new flagship Fire TV has been listed used on Amazon, so if you want to pay less and don’t mind cosmetic imperfections, this is your opportunity to get it for as little as $104.99. At that price, Amazon lists the new Fire TV Cube in “Acceptable” condition with “small cosmetic imperfections on the item associated with regular use.” The Cube is also listed for $118.99 in “Good” condition which is described as having “minor cosmetic imperfections on the item.” Either way, these new used offerings are the cheapest way yet for most people to buy the 3rd-gen Fire TV Cube from Amazon. Just click through to the product page and click the “New & Used” button to see the available used prices while they last.
3rd ben cube was a disaster for me. It did everything slower than my 2nd Gen cube along with still frames and mismatched dialogue. Went back to my 2nd gen and all the problems were resolved. Too bad the 30 day return period had ended. Buyer Beware!
I was one of the fortunate few to snag one for $99 bucks in October. Best device ever.
also note, there is no warranty…better to just wait until goes on sale again for $20 more
I was able to get it for the $99, but was not impressed. There was no difference with the super resolution being on or off and would get an error when using Wi-Fi 6e. I’ve stuck with the Firestick Max that was faster and more reliable.
There was an update that improved the super resolution back in December
Oh? I’m curious, has anyone shown that it did or by how much? Initial reports indicate that the feature was very underwhelming upon its release, given the hype. There is such a lack of information on this feature and its “improvement”. Does anyone have anything observable beyond a rando forum post that “its better”?
No, I don’t doubt that Amazon claimed to have improved the super-resolution feature, but I didn’t notice any difference and haven’t seen any actual comparisons.
Here is the direct upscaling comparison “shield vs cube 3”:
Any direct Amazon.com coupons?
I wasn’t impressed with the 3rd gen over what I could already get it off the 2nd gen Cube. But since there’s root for the 3rd gen now, it makes it a much more interesting device.
It looks like the Downloader By AFTVNews got removed from the Play Store
The app has been suspended due to an absurd DMCA takedown request. See here for more details: https://twitter.com/AFTVnews/status/1659648184803803136
Not sure where else to post this, but just wanted to bring to attention that the AFTVNews Downloader app is no longer available in the Google Play store
I traded in a Roku device that I was not using. Tried the FireBox 3 and wasn’t impressed. Hated the remote. Something about that middle click wheel. Couldn’t find anything about how the December update improved the Super Resolution. Review never came on this site. I returned it and got a Shield Pro 19. The AI Upscaling is real on this. Funny I was watching Law and Order and she said that the image was so sharp like 4k. With the Shield you have an ability to compare it. Oh I have a 2015 Shield that still gets day to day use, only piece of tech that I have that still functions 7.5 years after purchasing it. I had a 2 fire tv 2 as well. Those became slow and buggy after about 3 years.
