No separate component necessary, which we love — we're all about keeping things simple and elegant (and minimizing the bird's nest of cords winding around our entertainment center). Speaking of simplicity: This set comes with a voice remote so you can effortlessly have Alexa do your programming bidding.
But that's enough out of us — get a load of what some of its 2,700-plus five star reviewers had to say:
Take it from this repeat customer. "It's so good, I had to buy another one for another room!" they gushed. "The remote is set up with streaming apps already installed, and it's easy to add others. You can activate it easily by voice using Alexa. The remote also has a microphone button that you can push to make requests directly to the Fire TV. Another feature that I like is Amazon Music; you can request certain songs or albums and the TV not only plays it with great sound, but most have lyrics available that you can sing along to! It's like having your own karaoke machine!"
"Great picture and AMAZING sound quality!" proclaimed another instant fan. "This TV gets SO loud! I definitely didn’t need any additional speakers. Very lightweight, easy to set up and streams all my shows with ease. Remote is super easy to use, very self-explanatory."
And how adorable is this testimonial? "My husband and I both owned Toshiba TVs in our past lives, but this is our first one in many, many years. The picture is superb, as expected. The sound is SO much better than the off-brand TV we had previously — it was astounding the first time we turned it on."
