I'd been skeptical towards Alexa. But this prime day purchase totally changed my view. The Dot, at its price range, is just such a versatile and useful gadget that made me regret many of my other purchases at substantially higher price.
The audio quality is beyond good for something this small and affordable (purchased on prime day at more than 50% off). And Alexa works great with my existing computer and smart home devices. She also has a great collection of games, sleep sounds, a library ever-updating.
