Love, love, love our Echo. Organization, music, interactive games, Q&A, home management. Can’t wait to try out more features.

Awesome! Nothing like an Amazon Echo!!!! This is our SECOND Amazon Echo! I bought one for my hubby’s birthday in September and we love it so much I got another one for upstairs!! I love controlling our lights, outlets, switches, and so much more with Alexa. We love music and have a blast listening to whatever we want whenever we want. Alexa has become a wonderful addition to our family!!!!!

M. May says:

Great value! Bluetooth speaker alternative. I really only use it as a speaker and to get jokes (and to say inappropriate things to see how Alexa responds), but it does all of that pretty well. I need to start using the ITTT functionality…maybe this coming year.

This is by far one of the coolest things I have purchased. Being able to keep everything handsfree is really cool. I haven’t really explored everything that it does, but I have used it to add items to my cart, and to put things on my grocery list. I look forward to what the company has planned for this speaker. Great buy!!

I love Alexa!!! Paired with Amazon music, it’s one of the best gifts I’ve ever received.

I was a bit disappointed with the limitations of “Alexa”. But, as each week has gone by Amazon is able to have “her” do more and more things to the point where “she” can actually be interactive to a point.

Kathleen says:

Just GREAT, Easy set up. Fun I bought off another site for the same amount very much recommend for the price

mythbuster says:

This is a good gift for people that have everything. I got it for the heck of it and ended up finding it pretty useful. I plan on buying one for my parents also.
