The Amazon Fire TV 2 series serves one specific purpose well: giving you a full-featured, full-featured smart TV at a budget price. For those looking for a solid budget TV, this TV is a great value with 40% off. Right now, you can get the 32-inch Amazon Fire TV 2 Series for $119.99 (regularly $199.99) and the 40-inch Fire TV for $178.99 (regularly $249.99). Here's what you can expect from this TV.

Amazon Fire TV 32-inch Series 2 HD Smart TV with Fire TV Alexa Voice Remote lets you stream live TV without cable and connect to Kodi for free streaming.

When it comes to budget TVs, the bar is pretty low. When a TV offers decent features, it puts it ahead of the rest, and the Amazon Fire TV 2 series offers a lot of them. Because it's a Fire TV, it comes preinstalled with Fire TV OS, making it a smart TV with the ability to cast your phone or computer and download apps to stream your favorite shows and movies. Fire TV can also run Kodi, a software that lets you stream any show or movie for free. If you don't want to go through this process, you can just watch the live TV channels that come with your TV.

If you're deciding between a 32-inch and 40-inch TV, remember that there's more to consider than screen size. The 32-inch only runs 720p HD resolution, while the 40-inch is a 1080p Full HD TV. Both TVs feature a 60Hz refresh rate and can be wall-mounted via 200 x 10mm VESA mounting holes on the back of the TV. In terms of ports, you get digital optical audio out, Ethernet, USB 2.0, coaxial cable for live TV, three HDMI 1.4 ports (one of which supports ARC), an IR blaster, and a headphone jack. The Amazon Alexa remote is actually pretty good and lets you control your TV with your voice. It's better than the low-end Fire TV Stick remote because you can control the volume with it.

The Amazon Fire TV 2 series won't blow your mind, but for its price and features, you'll get a great value for your money.
