I am a new Echo user, but I love them. I started with a couple Dots because I thought I would just want to use the microphones to turn smart switches on and off. However, when I discovered I could listen to sounds of nature, I wanted the sound quality of this model. I am now drifting off to sleep to the sound of waves or rain. That is awesome! I have also listened to music and the Echo sounds surprisingly good, however, I am rarely in the same room for long so I like to use louder speakers with a subwoofer so I can hear my music from other areas. I could sync my music and play it from Echos all around the house, but that would be expensive to replace my dots and add more Echoes!
Really good Echo plus I saved $20 by getting a refurbished one. It didn’t come in a branded box (just a plain brown box), but it came with everything I needed to get up and runnng. I got this mostly to play music in my basement. Compared to my original Echo, I think it sounds better. A little more bass. It might be the location though. I love the size. It easily fits on the shelf by my laundry. I do wish it still had the volume ring. It is the one thing I miss. I have this on a high shelf so I can’t see the buttons on top.I have some smart lights in my house. I can control them with the Echo. I also have the Echo Connect so I can answer the house phone with this Echo as well. All in all, I’m very happy with this purchase.
Works just fine. Replaced my Echo Dot with this and the sound quality is much better. Going to use my Dot in the bedroom.
ALEXA IS NOT VERY SMART. SIRI IS WAY BETTER. I USE IT AS A TIMER AND TO PLA MUSIC.
I buy one and I just run for one more lol
Works amazing I use it everyday love it
Just wish it worked with my A-Com alarm system
