Amazon has kicked off its full Black Friday Prices for Fire TV devices and easily the best deal is the brand new Fire TV Stick 4K Max for $34.99. At 36% off its regular price of $54.99, this is the first time that the newest Firestick has ever been on sale. It’s certainly early for Black Friday, but make no mistake that this is Amazon’s Black Friday price and it will not drop any lower than this when actual Black Friday rolls around. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max outperforms all other Fire TV models except for the 2nd-gen Fire TV Cube, which is also on sale for $79.99. If you’re cross-shopping the Max and the regular Fire TV Stick 4K, which is on sale for $24.99, take a look at this comparison between the Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Stick 4K Max. Go here to see all of the live Black Friday deals on Amazon’s devices.
I was waiting to pounce! Ordered! Thanks for the assist.
Just got it to upgrade my 4K stick. When I sell the Stick 4k for 20.00 on Craigslist it will be a 15.00 investment.
Thanks for the article. I just ordered 3 of the Max… Time to upgrade the whole house for the next 3 years.
Elias just FYI: I don’t see the Max listed in the Buyers Guide on AFTV.
Doh! Thanks for the heads up. I’ve added the Max to the Buyer’s Guide and I’ve updated all the Fire TV devices in there. https://www.aftvnews.com/amazon-device-buyers-guide/
I *really* appreciate that Buyers Guide. It’s particularly nice for advising friends and family who have different use cases than I do.
Tell me more about this firestick
I read somewhere that only application data goes on an USB drive and the cache goes on internal storage like the old 2G FTV Box. Is this true?
If true can I install the entire app, data and cache using Remote ADB Shell?
Yes, that’s true for all Fire TV models.
Too bad the 50% off (up to $15) Chase UR point offer doesn’t stack with the Amazon trade in offer 20% off + $3 AMZ gift card. Would have had me at ~ $10 Amazon!
At ~ $20 I’ll wait and see if I can catch a crazy offer/bundle. I’m sure there will be other offers allowing opportunity to get this for ~ $20.
I’m enjoying TV again thanks to the smooth, responsive performance of the Max. The original Fire TV Cube is the most disappointing device I’ve purchased in many years. No amount of wiping/reloading or updates made it tolerable.
I had ordered one and one selling was a scam I will try get one I want
I got mine today at Best Buy. $34.99
