    "Wow !...fun !...Gift for college student,she loves it!...Awesome techy gift...Awesome techy gift...All in all, the Echo Dot is worth the $29.95 that paid for it and I would give it a 4.5/5.0, and recommend that you buy one for your home if you can envision current uses, such as listening to news reports, music and a variety of podcasts, asking Alexa to look things up in Wikipedia for you, or have Alexa tell you corny jokes and words of inspiration or for future uses, such as controlling the lights (smart bulbs), alarms, smart thermostat, etc."

    "WOW !...I LOVE...Useful for school...Look forward to purchasing more for holiday gifts....Look forward to purchasing more for holiday gifts....I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because although it's nice to be able to ask it the weather, have it call my phone if I can't find it, it serves as a home phone for me to make calls, lets me know what's on my schedule or add something to my calendar however it's not compatible with all my smart devices like my Chamberlain garage opener or Orbit b-hyve sprinkler system and it works when it wants on my ecobee thermostat."
