I have been very pleased with the Wi-Fi reception of the built-in Fire TV. It actually works a lot better than the USB-plug-in external fire sticks, for whatever reason.”

In this madcap crossover, Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach and Yoshi join forces with four friendly Rabbids (from the hit gaming franchise Raving Rabbids) in a wacky adventure to save the Mushroom Kingdom from a not-so-friendly group of invading Rabbids.

“I couldn't be more pleased with this Amazon Fire product,” shared a savvy five-star shopper and traveler. “That was just the start. I wanted to go on a two week trip across country and didn't want to carry my big laptop as a carry-on. But, I wanted a bigger screen than a cell phone for reading books and checking email. The Amazon Fire was the perfect solution to my problem. The day I got it I started setting up Kindle and using the internet. It performed beautifully on the plane. Once I got to my destination I started seeing what else I could do. I was able to easily get into my email and Facebook within minutes. The only thing this little wonder won't do is make a phone call. Everything else is easy and intuitive. Love it!”
