Some long time ago I tested my Chromecast vs. Amazon Fire (stick, not TV.) I ended up putting Chromecasts (now Chromecast 2s) on all 3 of our TVs, primarily because the Amazon Fire stick experience felt clunky, slow, and Plex (which we use a lot) seemed to have a lot more buffering problems. I liked how so many apps on my iPhone/iPad have built in Chromecast support (including Google Play music.)
The one thing that has me taking a second look is Amazon Prime Video. Most of our streaming video watching comes from Netflix and Hulu, and Plex for ripped DVDs in our collection. But once in a while there is something on Amazon video I’d like to watch, and of course Amazon is never going to let it’s Prime Video be compatible with Chromecast.
So my question is: What are the pluses and minuses of the current state of the Amazon Fire Stick and Amazon Fire TV vs, the Chromecast 2?
