I initially misunderstood the ordering instructions. When I ordered "1" I thought that it was 1 pair, not a single unit. But Amazon was great at fixing my mistake.
So for the review - the Echo Dot is fantastic. Easy to set up and easy to link my Alexa compatible products. I linked up my Smart Outlet plugs and it is so nice to just tell Alexa to turn on/off my lights as I go from room to room.
The sound quality is very surprisingly good - really very good.
My only issue is that while in the set up I have a Chinese language option, that option does not work when enabled. Also, I don't think that you can enable more than 1 language, which is a pain, as we speak Mandarin, French, English at home and my boys are learning German and Spanish at school.
I will be buying some more Echo Dots so that I can leave them in other areas of the house.
My only complaint is that when Alexa confirms she has done something, she sounds so bland or apathetic which I find very annoying. Come on Alexa, put some spirit into your voice and sound interested in your work.
