Amazon Fire TV Repairability Score: 6 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair)

Simple construction—upper case, lower case, heat sink, motherboard. Once it's apart, there's not much to keep track of.

The power supply is separate; should it ever need replacement, there'll be no disassembly required.

Standard Phillips screws populate the internals, making this box a worry-free affair once you're inside...

...provided you never need to remove the heat sink, which is secured with copious amounts of extremely sticky glue.

The outer case is a very tight fit. Plastic clips are used rather than glue, but they're so stubborn you'd be forgiven for thinking otherwise.

A single board hosts all the vitals—clean and simple, but when it comes to repair, it's all or nothing.
