Bought an echo dot to pair up with my plus for my office at work - as with the plus, I had nothing but drama setting it up.
I'm typically an Android user and thought I'd give Amazon a go before setting up our smart house. While I am on the geeky side, I'm far from a technology wiz.
The set up was flawed. I couldn't connect anything or find anything. I had to use the alternative wifi method and even then it took 2 hours of back and forth with the same processes and resets of the device. It was annoying and I dread the day that I need to set another device up.
The sound is unreal once set up and I actually encouraged other people in my office to get their own speakers (which they did!) and they had the same unnecessarily difficult time with set ups.
Not sure what it is but there's no way I could handle the stress of an entire smart home with any Echo product..
I would recommend for end result usability though. Great quality.
