Amazon Echo Dot


#1

Does anyone have on? I’m toying with the idea of getting one but not sure if it is really worth it. The dot is down to 50 quid.


#2

i’ve got one though not used it much; still have the full size echo in the living room.

all depends on what you’re going to use it for/with and how well supported they are.

It would have been from mostly playing music until I watch a review and the dot doesnt have a speaker for that.


#4

aye, the dot you can attach to whatever other system you’ve got; i intend to attach it to something in the livingroom and move the echo to the kitchen, but haven’t got round to the faff yet.

We have a dot. Use it mainly for music upstairs getting ready in the morning and stuff. Sound from the inbuilt speaker is fine for that. I was surprised at the sound quality on the dot as I was expecting it to be a lot worse.
If you are looking for more oomph then the Full size daddy (was down to £99 the other day) has pretty decent sound quality and decent volume on it. We use that downstairs in living room.

As a speaker, it’s not great. As a device (ITTT is good) it works. And I got full size thingy. If it’s good monies, get it. Plenty of development going on. It can do many things, many will be coming. If you use internet (amazon a lot) to get stuff and do stuff or want reports on stuff, it can be great. Would recommend a base unit to use as a charger / power supply, especially for showerinbg etc!!! It doesn’t have it’s own power supply so needs battery stand or has to be plugged in.
