After such a short time, to experience such a major problem with the TV, I am starting to feel that @BestBuy is intentionally selling these defective TVs to get them out of their inventory and to make money off of it. You may say that I am salty. Yes, I am salty! I have big black empty box and no TV! Thank you @BestBuy for selling me a #BestBuyDefectiveTV.
If I could give it 0 stars I would!
Let's get this out of the way first: A recent Fire TV OS update allows you to set the TV to power on to the last input used. So if you primarily use an external box, like Comcast Xfinity or DirecTV, you can default to that when you turn on the TV. Furthermore, the TV does have HDMI-CEC. I use this with my Tivo Bolt and just push Live TV on my TiVo remote and the TV will power on and automatically switch to HDMI 2 full screen. Easy and nothing to balk at.
The photo show the difference in remotes, with the TCL Roku on the left, the Toshiba Fire TV Edition (included) in the middle, and the newer Fire TV Remote w/Alexa Voice on the right. It's a larger remote for sure with some extra buttons. Unfortunately, the while it has an IR lense, the Fire TV OS in the Toshiba lacks the same functions that you would get with the voice remote on the right. Specifcially, if you are not using the HDMI ARC channel, you can't program the remote to control volume on older A/V receivers. The "new" Alexa Voice remote does this...unfortunately, that remote cannot be paired with this TV. Stupid, right? The idea was to ditch as many remotes as possible, but I'm still stuck with two if using Fire TV because I can't control the stereo volume that I currently patch with optical cable from TV to 5.1 stereo.
Speaking of volume, ALEXA YELLS AT YOU. With a few exceptions, the volume of Alexa vs program volume is way off. I haven't found a setting that will turn her volume up or down, and unlike some Echo devices, you can't say "Alexa Voice 5" to change it independent of the program volume. You'll actually find complaints on this in the support forums.
Despite having a 4-core CPU, it still has some lag when switching to various screens in Fire TV OS. Not much different experience than the regular Fire TV devices.
Where this TV really shines is for OTA users. The new(ish) Live Guide is great for antenna input, and if you have Philo, Pluto, or PS Vue they will appear here too. They need a faster way to jump to a different source because scrolling through all the Pluto Channels to get to the Philo list takes forever. Some Amazon Channels show up here as well, though I was disappointed that apps that support live TV do not show their programming info in the guide yet. I expect it's coming, but of course have no expectations on ETA. Fingers crossed that YouTube TV will end up in the live guide.
Color settings can be tweaked for EACH input, and they have 3 HDMI to work with. You'll get a subset of color functions with UHD and Dolby Vision content playback.
Some other menu items that you'll find on Fire TV Stick devices are also missing on the TV. I do kinda wish that the TV offered CableCard connectivity to plug Xfinity directly into it and pull that content into the Live Guide, but I guess that's what my Tivo is for.
There are some dark spots in the corners. The viewing angle isn't bad, but can look a little washed out the further away from center you get.
Anything over 1080p looks sharp and solid. Sadly, I've noticed that most streaming services are highly compressed and even at 1080 they will result in gradient banding and halos. OTA SD content (sent over Xfinity cable) is really bad now. We're coming from a 42" Samsung Plasma and while you knew a signal wasn't HD, it wasn't as obvious. The backlighting isn't as bright as most UHD Dolby Vision TVs, so that might hurt you if you need the extra bright. Unless I'm watching a dark program signal, I can usually have windows open without strong glares or reflections ruining things.
No cable management in the back. Not even one of those fat rubberbands to guide wires down the middle. The feet are UGLY, so keep that in mind of you're not mounting it to a wall (we are still debating that in our house). The mount is 200x400 on the 50" model, so keep that in mind too. I was thrown off because the Roku was 200x200 and only a few pounds lighter.
BOTTOM LINE: If you're looking for a good entry Dolby Vision 4K UHD television, it's not a bad choice. If you're willing to spend an extra $300+ you might find something better, but really nothing under $500 that going to rock your world.
The stars I've taken away are primarily the result of missing Fire TV OS functions that are found on the other Fire TV device line and/or remotes. I'd easily move the Smart Features and Alexa Integration up to 5 stars if they'd just add or fix them to the TV Edition OS.
