    Pretty useless product

    Luckily we received this free with another purchase, because I would have never paid for it. It didn't come with any useful instructions and I can't see what is special about it. I guess I will do more research about it.

    All of its features are great. The half price sale was great. I want to use it in my camper van with my IPhone hotspot internet feature, but neither I nor a friend can establish that connection with the available instructions.

    Echo Dot is a mediocre product.

    Setup of the Echo Dot is extremely cumbersome. It took several attempts before I was able to make it to work. A week later it lost WIFI connection, for whatever reason. I had to spend two hours to restore the connection. For sure, the instructions are terrible. Answering simple questions by the ECHO DOT is OK, But not with slightly more complicated questions. Not impressive.

    I have 3 of the Echos and love them. They are so smart and I use them as an intercom. I have only one complaint and that is they weren't that easy to get the devices to work like you want them too. I know it is me but I believe the instructions could be a little better in explaining how to correct problems. For example, I can tell Alexa to play music and it plays in another room. It does this sometimes when you tell it which room you want the music played in. They are very smart and I use them for more tasks all the time. They come in very handy as a timer in the kitchen. My granddaughter gave me my first one as a Christmas present when they first came out and I didn't know what it was. I thought it was some kind of hockey puck. I am an old geezer but I love having them around. I would absolutely recommend them to a friend.
