Echo Dot-smart speaker with Alexa Cons
I’m forced to use the online Alexa app because I don’t own any Apple or Android device and my Windows 10 PC doesn’t have the app.
I cannot say enough about this amazon echo dot.
It is WONDERFUL.
Loud, crisp, and knows my voice so well.
I love the size of this one.
It is much more convenient and easy to stow away but still be heard with the far-field of sound.
My guests have absolutely enjoyed asking questions and about the weather and especially using it with my Spotify.
I purchased a wall mount too that works very well.
Again I would recommend this to anyone who loves to have music around the house being played.
Did I mention the price? Unbeatable.
Don’t get a knock off! Just get the amazon echo dot 3rd generation and do yourself a favor.
I am just over the moon about this item.

For example, you can create a morning routine that turns on lights and your coffee maker with a single request.

Amazon Smart Plug- works with Alexa Cons
I experienced issues as other folks are having, but Amazon Staff on the Alexa boards are failing to help.
Got this smart plug so I can remotely turn appliances/lights on and off in an Alzheimer’s patient’s home.
I can remotely make sure things are off by simply turning them on/off in the Amazon Alexa app – super simple to use and really helps me out.
Now I don’t have to drive over there to make sure the lights are off, or the AC or TV is off, etc.

I primarily use this as an alarm clock and I love it!
Echo Show 5- compact smart display with Alexa Cons
The downside to using this as an alarm clock is if the power goes out, you get nothing
I think it is pretty cool that I can watch the daily news briefing on my alarm clock.
I can get the weather for today or the week’s forecast displayed.
I can play music with decent sound (much better than most clocks sound) on my alarm clock.
It displays the date and weather information in the top left corner and alarm time in the top right.
All of that is voice-activated.
I can also use my voice to set the alarm (and turn it off) rather than fiddling with 3-4 buttons, or holding one down while it cycles through 24 hours.
You can also manually set it in the settings with the touch screen.
The alarm sound can also be set to come on quietly and gradually increase in volume.

I wake up in the morning and she does the routine I’ve set up, and she’s so comforting and useful and fun overall
All-new Echo Dot with clock- a smart speaker with Alexa Cons
When playing music, sometimes the sound seems distorted especially the high trebles.
I’d recommend this for someone who needs an echo for their kitchen, bedroom or bathroom.
It’s just not going to hold down a living room unfortunately but overall, I like the sound and if I need a second echo, I’ll definitely get a dot.
This is an experience made for younger ears.

My daughter loves to use them for music, books, random kid questions, and whatnot.
I got her this second-generation kids edition Echo Dot in the rainbow.
Echo Dot kids edition with parental controls-rainbow Cons
You cannot set up voice recognition on a kid’s profile.
This is exactly what I would expect from a kid’s edition Amazon product.
There are easy to use parental controls that make me confident I can allow my daughter to use it without worry.
I say it’s definitely worth what I paid for it.
The little bit extra you pay is for the FreeTime Unlimited; I didn’t notice any other differences between the regular and kid version.
However, the FreeTime unlimited is what makes this more fun for kids.

Great sound & size.
Just starting to play around with it.
I like it so far!
Echo Show 8”-HD8” smart display with Alexa ConsI can’t stand the “try Alexa” phrases at the bottom.
From all the reviews I read on the 5 I wasn’t the only one.
At least make it an option.
We keep the Amazon Show 8 in our kitchen, and the whole family enjoys using it.
The display is the perfect size on the kitchen counter.
We enjoy playing music (sounds great) and of course, we enjoy asking Alexa for the temperature or the weather forecast, and asking basically any question you can think of.
The recipe feature is excellent too!

I am an avid reader and adore the new paperwhite! To me, it’s the perfect reader.
Kindle paperwhite- Waterproof-2X more storage Cons
It feels flimsy and hollow.
It still has the same design as the original Paperwhite, you know the one released back in 2012 which makes it 6 years old
Using overdrive on my phone or tablet, it’s easy to borrow books and return books from my library.
The newest update allows you to return right from your paperwhite and that is a huge improvement.
As a prime member, I get a free book every month plus I follow several emails that alert to free or greatly discounted books.
8 GB of storage is way more than enough for me.
I find the weight to be significantly less than a paperback even with a case.
I am happy with this purchase!

Kindle Paperwhite-E-reader-black 6” Cons
It does not have a lighted screen.
This is a much better book reading experience.
Love the form factor and ease of use.
Also not being able to switch to other apps while reading is a good thing.

Ring Wi-Fi Smart Video Doorbell Cons
My refund was only 64 percent of my total cost.
Not only did I love the great price, but I also enjoy knowing who’s at my door when I’m not home.
The product came quickly and was easy to install.
I’m very pleased with this purchase all around.
There are also Smartwatch and Apple watches with sales prices too.
This is $30 cheaper than the normal price.
These prices will not last long and the Black Friday and Cyber Monday events are great.
- Optical heart sensor
- Digital Crown
- S3 with a dual-core processor
- Accelerometer and gyroscope
Really, I don’t have any cons.
I know people think a smartphone in your back pocket is the top, but this just changes the game.
Apple Watch Series 3 Cons
The watch was in a constant state of pooping the Apple logo and did not break out of it even with a reset.
I love this watch! I upgraded from a series.
It runs so smooth and flawlessly compared to series.
It feels like what the Apple Watch was meant to be.
The ability of Siri to talk back is refreshing.
The ability to see HTML emails is a huge plus as well.
And finally, the fact that it is waterproof seals the deal.
