After countless 'happy' Amazon purchases, I'll be returning an item for the 1st time.

    Got the new Amazon Fire TV delivered today .. .... I tried to like it ...the seamlessness of operation & fluidity were fairly impressive... The voice recognition on the remote was mildly convenient ... But, the onscreen mish-mash of jumbled apps made me want to punt the thing into rush-hour freeway traffic.. Navigating through that jungle of a mess was hairier than Florida Evans' unshaven bush after 9 months of pregnancy ... What a thoroughly unpleasant experience...

    Back goes in my Roku-3 & Apple-TV ... And, the Amazon Fire-TV gets a first class ride back to the minors. Maybe the next version they'll get right..

    Generally I'm a BIG fan of Amazon... But, they missed the mark with this device... Made me wanna punch a midget

    Huh??

    I suppose that means you're not pleased with your device, either?

    Imagine how that'd look after 9 months ....Running a comb through that [] navigating through the Amazon TV onscreen guide ---- Scientifically the same level of difficulty
