This was my fist experience with the Echo range of products, and I couldn't be happier. It has been a pretty seamless experience so far, setup worked first time, re-configuring when I change my WiFi, perfect!
However as with most assistants it doesnt always get words right and has issues hearing me when the portable air-con is on (granted my google home has similar issues). The skills are great however its such a pity it has to be in English US to use most of them, prefer the Aussie voice.
Looking to purchase a dot shortly. Well done Amazon!!
