Looking for reviews and can you stream from your PC to the fire?

The Fire tablet, the Fire TV or the Fire Phone?

And yes, there are threads about all three. All you have to do is search.

I've had a Fire TV for a few months now. I think its great even with its few quirks. You can install XBMC on it and stream video from your PC. At my house, its mainly used for XBMC and Netflix. When XBMC acts flaky, i can just restart the Fire TV (takes about 5-10 seconds) and that fixes it every time.

Here's the thread for Amazon Fire TV in the Streaming Talk section. You'll find links to reviews and a couple owners that can answer your questions.

You can use Plex to stream video, music and photos from your PC.
