5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing device, love it!, 16 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have had my echo dot for around a couple of weeks now and I love it! I am surprised at how much we're actually using it.

Pros
- Very small and discreet, so it fits in nicely into my home. The design overall is very sleek, and I really like the little light animations. Also the way the light ring is used in general as a UI paradigm (to show the volume for example) is a really nice example of screen-free UI done well.
- The speaker is much louder than I expected. I'm not saying it's a top notch speaker, but for a small room it is more than enough to listen to music
- I like the fact I can set up stuff using the app while I'm out, for example an alarm
- It has tons of commands, and seems to get updated in this sense very often

Cons
- The speaker is ok, but it's not amazing. It can however connect via bluetooth to other better speakers
- Sometimes it randomly speaks when it thinks we have asked it something. Doesn't happen very often though
- Some commands need improving. For example, if I ask at what time it's going to rain, it just tells me the chances overall during the day, which seems like a bit of a missed opportunity

I may end up buying another one for another room as I actually miss having one in the living room and kitchen. Very happy with it and looking forward to further improvements!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely little record player for a great price!, 5 Sept. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely record player that looks pretty much the same as others on the market that are way more expensive. Yes, the handle is a different tone of white as reviews mention, but it looks nice this way, don't really understand the fuss to be honest.

In terms of the sound quality, you get what you'd expect, for us it's perfect as we live in a small flat anyway so we don't play the music very loud, but you can always connect it to a more powerful speaker if it's not enough.

Definitely happy with my purchase! :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Pretty but flimsy, 12 July 2016

Looks really nice but the micro USB plug broke very easily after less than a month, it still works though, it's just a bit wobbly when plugged in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best micro USB cable I have found on amazon, 12 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're looking for a sturdy micro USB cable that doesn't mess up right away this is the one to go for. Very durable and charges very fast, looks great and for the low price you actually get two cables (didn't realise when I purchased it, was a nice surprise).

Arrived fast and works very well, we used the selfie stick a lot on a trip and it was fine, held on the camera well. For the price I would definitely recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than I expected, 12 Jan. 2015
I was rather skeptical about how useful this would be, and if it was more of a gimmick that would end up in the drawer. Surprisingly enough though, I actually find this very useful, I am definitely checking my phone less often, and it's really convenient when on the go. There are even some games that work on it, and work pretty well. The key word here is Potential.

Also, Android Wear just got updated to 5.0 and it has been vastly improved.

POSITIVES
- Easy to set up
- Surprisingly very useful - and has a lot of potential, I'm hoping apps like Citymapper and Uber will pick up on it, although there are quite a few apps out already that support it (Lyft, Evernote, etc)
- Battery life is quite good. As an example, I took it off the charger on a Saturday morning, and on Sunday evening I still had 38% left. Also note this was with screen always on, so if you don't use it heavily you might actually get 2-3 days out of a single charge
- Build quality is good, the screen looks nice (not super res, but good enough) and it feels resistant
- Android wear app is nice, it doesn't do much yet but it's fairly easy to set up and use
- Charging dock, while not mind blowing, works well and gets the job done, not fiddly at all as it has a magnet when you connect it to secure it into place

NEGATIVES
- It's a bit bulky, and the design is a bit meh, I can see this looking very dated very soon, but considering it's pretty much the first android wear device to come out I would say it's a pretty good start
- The strap is massive, rubbery and just not that nice, I will def get another strap in the near future
- Android Wear is nice, much better since the 5.0 update, but it still has a long way to go. Also, the learning curve is quite high IMO, it is a new paradigm so it will take you a couple of days to get used to it
- It occasionally disconnects from the phone, and I have had to restart both the watch and phone for them to sync up again, but usually it sorts itself out after a few minutes

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing computer, really good value for the price!, 26 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is such an excellent computer, and so cheap for what you get. I bought 8 GB of RAM on Amazon and it works even better.

Things I particularly like about the device:
- Beautiful design, looks lovely on my desk (doesn't look like a computer so it goes with my living room which has a bit of a retro look)
- Completely silent and doesn't get hot
- Really easy to add RAM, you just rotate the base and it pops up, then it's just a question of plucking out the DIMs that are there and inserting the new ones, which pop in with a nice click
- Very fast, and for most people will be enough power to do everything they may need. I am a designer so I do push the machine a bit more than the average user, and it still works flawlessly

3.0 out of 5 stars Flickers a bit, but does look nice, 26 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It flickers a lot, so I guess that's why it's cheaper, but it does look nice so if this doesn't bother you, then it's fine, I have it in my living room and it works ok. Just wondering how long it's gonna last...

I used this on my holiday in the US and Canada, works really well and looks nice, I would def recommend. It does work well for both the US and Australia, you just need to rotate the little plug pins.
