It is a great little fun gadget. We have it as a radion in the bathroom and it works well. As a Star Trek fan its especially cool that you can chose to call it "Computer" instead of Alexa. I also like the news skills to keep quickly up to date on what is going on in the world. The only downside is the sound is rather average so I would probably by the bigger one as next one. However it is a solid sound for a speaker of this size.
