I've used the Plex app on my Fire tablet and Gen 1 Fire TV for months now and I like it a lot. I am using it to stream mostly music and some video from my WD EX4 NAS server running Plex Server.

This version on my Fire TV is much more responsive than browsing the same media with my Hisense 4k TV, Panasonic Blueray player or my Denon receiver. The overall user experience is the best of any of those other devices. Still, with Fire TV I find I am wishing for voice search capability. I guess I'll always want more.

Installation and setup was virtually seamless. Login to my free Plex account and I was immediately able to connect and stream from the server on my NAS. I am not using the Plex premium service so no monthly charges.

In conclusion the Plex app on my Fire tablets and Gen 1 Fire TV have done a great job serving up my in-house media library. Setup was easy, the app is free, and I've had ZERO problems. I would like to see a future update support Fire TV voice search and/or control. Short of that enhancement Plex has a great platform friendly streaming experience earning a solid 5 stars from me.

First let me say that I've tried numerous apps to stream music and video. There was always an issue that made the apps less than stellar. Plex gives me 99% of what I want!

Positives
---------
- Stream movies and videos to iPhone, Android tablets (HP Touchpad running CyanogenMod 9, Kindle Fire HD, HP Slate) and HTC One phone (devices that I have)
- Integrates with iTunes so that my 120GB music database can be played anywhere
(I have moved to Subsonic for music streaming. It does a much better job with music. Perhaps one day Plex will be there as well.)
- iTunes playlists on home PC are seen with Plex client so I can easily stream music while driving (no more Pandora, Spotify, etc.)
(Yeah, still works, but it's not reliable.)
- Plex client login allows you to see all of your libraries automatically, no matter what device you are using
- Plex app for Roku so that I can stream home videos, movies, music to TVs. You can take this little box with you on vacation, hook it to a TV, connect via integrated WiFi and have access to all of your multimedia just as if you were home as well as NetFlix and other apps.
(Just make sure that you are converting your files to something Roku likes. I tried the Amazon Fire TV and the video files that stream flawlessly under Roku were choppy with Amazon Fire TV and Plex.)
- Integrated database populates the metadata for music and movies instantly. No need to use a metadata manager.
- TV Show series look great and contain all of the info about each episode.
- The quality of the videos can be adjusted automatically or manually based on your connection speed so you can stream over 3G or slow WiFi connections.
- DLNA support in latest beta.

Awesome application! I have installed this on two PC's now,one PC i call Media Center and houses all my Movies, Music, Children's Videos and Pictures collection. The second PC is more of a Gaming / Productivity machine so mostly tutorials that help with my work is stored there. First of whether wired or wireless it's an awesome server, I didn't mind paying the one time $4 dollar activation fee for Android as once i started using it on my Roku i wanted the same freedom on my Android device. Now i can watch my favorite series in the shower without disturbing my daughter when she watches one of her shows on the big screen or one of the many live TV options like FilmOn and others that Plex offers. Planning to build a third Plex server soon and this one i'll allow access for when i'm on the road. Awesome App.

The original Plex app for Amazon, while a little buggy, at least gave you the opportunity to view your media collection in a coherent way. The forced new update turned the app into a mishmash of half-baked ideas while providing you with no easy way to view your collection. I'm fully aware that a new GUI often brings bad reviews due to the unfamiliarity of the layout, but I truly think this update is horrible and wish there was a way to revert to the old version.

Plex is amazing! It has allowed me to be able to organize and access my music, movies, and photos from every TV, computer, and cell phone in my home. We have the Plex app on our Amazon Fire TV also and it works great.

Better still all my media is here in my home on my hard drive on my Plex media server. Not out on the Internet in the cloud. But here with me. The fidelity is better and streaming is always flawless because I don't have to deal with congestion on the Internet.

And it's free. And for a few bucks Plex offers a lot more. I definitely recommend checking it out.

Even after paying $4.99. I get a message that I need activate again. Both Plex and Amazon haven't identified the issue. Also, I could not resume a movie from where I left. I could do that on a Roku though

Just when I started liking the service....

I downloaded this to use on my Fire TV stick and I have to say it works quite well. Once I figured out I had to create an account and purchase a Plex Pass to stream my media to different devices it all made sense. I'm still having some minor issues with the media server not recognizing some of my movies/tv shows, but I'm getting those worked out. Sometimes all it takes is just to bounce the media server and the information updates. I think I'll like this product.
