Promising review: "I've waited for a smart home speaker for some time because I wasn't sure which one I should get, since there are a few to consider. I chose the Echo Dot for a few reasons. It has a ton of support for smart devices and they have many app skills to pick from. The sound quality is great! I was really surprised by how much sound comes from this little device. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids, and I am very pleased with the sound. I am having a great time connecting it to some of my devices like my Xbox One, Bluetooth headsets, and speaker system. I plan on ordering more smart plugs to control my lamps and fan for starters, and may look into an Alexa-controlled smart TV. All I can say is that Amazon has really made a great upgrade to the previous versions. It was part of the reasons why I picked this one. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a small smart speaker with the ability to control devices, and a great assistant." —Phantom Phreak
