To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I thought I broke my remote, so I ordered this one immediately for my Insignia fire tv.
Worked straight out the box, yet I was still unable to get Hulu to open thru the button, reset my tv and voila it’s back to working, so my original remote is working (I put it away) and am using this remote. Only gripe is although the remote works out the box, the voice part requires pairing, seems to unpair but whatever overall happy with the remote.
Really great replacement for my Toshiba fire tv. All the buttons work , except for the search button does nothing at all and the Hulu button doesn't go to Hulu (I would have loved that) it goes to live tv. But I would absolutely purchase again if I needed another.
So I bought this remote . It is the 3rd remote for my fire tv. I like the TV but the remotes with alex or voice recognition are crap. I bought this one without the voice recognition. The previous replacement reached a point where it kept draining batteries in like a day. This one is great works well and does its job.
This remote works well but does have a couple issues being no voice contol and not all the bottom buttons work to go directly to a streaming service. Overall better than the other options I bought that did not work at all.
The price was right and worked with my Toshiba FireTV Edition 55" It has 1 extra button but this is not an issue. Sometimes I have to press the button twice to get it to do what I am trying but at least it does work.
The remote features work fine and the price is certainly better than a full replacement remote with voice recognition. However, the lack of voice recognition is a huge minus. At best, it makes a good backup remote. Four stars is a stretch, until you consider the price.
