Supposed to be an "open" device. Only time will tell. It looks awesome though. The GUI experience if it's as shown in the demo videos is going to be SICK. Many review sites that had a hands-on with it say it's very very good. Can't wait to get it in my hands and play around with it. Biggest factor will be that Plex runs like DOO-DOO on the Roku. If it's as flawless on the Fire TV as the creator of Plex says it will pay for its price.
Plex runs just fine on the roku. I run at full 20mbps without issue. Direct plays my rips fine. If you're having issues it's likely your server or network. The fire tv won't change that at all as it still relies on a plex media server.
