The more robust 4K device, normally $49.99, drops by 24% for a current price of $37.99. The entry-level Lite, meanwhile, is just $24.99, down from $29.99.
The 4K Stick is one of our favorite streaming devices as a budget-friendly streamer for big users of Alexa and Amazon Prime Video. Not only does it support popular streaming services, including Disney+, HBO Max and Peacock, but the device comes with an "excellent" remote with voice search that can control all of your Alexa-compatible gadgets. It also supports 4K (HDR10 and Dolby Vision) and Dolby Atmos sound for the freshest viewing experience of shows and movies.
If you're looking for something a little easier on your wallet, there's the Fire Stick Lite. We've noted before that the Lite's remote also comes with Alexa voice remote capability and the access to well-known streaming services. However, the Lite remote doesn't have volume adjustment buttons that can control your TV's sound or the Dolby Atmos passthrough that the 4K Stick and the standard Fire Stick ($39.99) both have.
That being said, Amazon customers have awarded the Fire Stick Lite more than 142,000 perfect 5-star ratings and praised how easy the Lite is to set up and use. They also liked how quickly they said it could jump between services and shows.
Whether you want a simple start or the best viewing experience possible, Amazon has the bases covered. If you're looking to jump into the world of streaming without draining your wallet, pick the stick that's right for you!
