Don't listen to the bad reviews, this new Firestick is awesome. The Wi-Fi upgrade is noticeable right away. The people who are having trouble are clueless when it comes to networks. You want to be connecting to 5Ghz, if you connect to 2.4 Ghz then performance will suffer because your streaming content. You need to make sure you have a 5Ghz router or at least a dual band router.
