Great device

Looks and sounds great. Ideal for keeping in touch with other family members over the internet using the drop in facility, especially now during covid season. Video linking ability is a great asset, and is easy to set up and use. Camera lens can be covered if you just want audio for privacy. Massive list of skills to choose from in the app. Love it!

Bought to allow video contact with my mum, and so she can see her grandkids in these isolating times. Works well.

Screen adds a lot to alexa experience but unit takes up more space and a little clunky

The screen adds a lot more to the ease of use and experience over the dot and the other alexa products. You can watch videos, ask alexa to search the web, load up music tracks etc, but the downside is that unit takes up a good 6 inches behind it, so you need a good amount of space, and because of the screen, there is not much point hiding it away , it needs to be out and visible. The screen is not that intuitive for non-tech savvy people; its hard to know how to get up the different functions because it doesn't have a "home screen" with apps on it like a smart phone. The speakrs are good, better than other bluetooth speakers. When you ask alexa to play direct from apple music (easy to set up), the sound is a lot better, than when I use my phone, and connect via bluetooth to play through the echo speaker.

Pretty good, but functionality still a bit limited but reckon over time as software improves so will possibilities.

Good quality

Great quality could be better if it had internal battery so can be made portable instead of being plugged in


Fantastic device, I’ve linked up my cctv and home connect appliances, easy to set up and fantastic quality sound
