The innovative Amazon Echo HD Speaker with Voice Controlled Personal Assistant is a hands-free speaker that is designed around your voice and the commands you give, with the ability to answer your questions, read audiobooks, report on news, traffic and weather, provide sports updates and so much more. Access everything from your connected devices to all your favourite technologies with the brilliant Amazon Echo.

Amazing Alexa - the brain behind the Amazon Echo, Alexa is voice service that updates through the cloud automatically and is continually learning and adding new functions and skills to their repertoire. The more you use the Echo in your everyday life, the more it adapts to your speech style, vocabulary and preferences.

Serious skills - from ordering a takeaway meal from Just Eat to requesting a taxi from Uber, skills mean all your favourite applications can be accessed instantly. Amazon are constantly adding new skills to the Alexa app - just enable which ones you want to use, and instantly see reviews and ratings about them too.

Voice recognition makes it personal - with just a word, the Echo responds to you - just say "Alexa" to wake up your device. Far-field voice recognition means the Echo can hear you ask a question from any direction, even in noisy environments. You do not need to train Alexa to understand your voice, as the Echo works with multiple people’s voice commands straight out of the box.

Surrounding sound - with seven microphones and developed with beam-forming technology, the Echo can hear you from across the room even while music is playing. The Echo is also an expertly tuned speaker that has been designed to fill any room. Plus, it can play your favourite music and playlists from Amazon Prime Music, Spotify and more, using just your voice.

Connect your home - the clever Echo has the ability to controls lights, switches, thermostats and smart home technologies, when you pair it with compatible connected devices from Philips Hue, Hive, TP-Link, and more.

Seamless set up - just plug it in, connect to the internet with the Alexa app, and you are ready to go. The included Quick Start Guide will help you get the most out of your Echo, and there are no subscription fees to use the Echo either.

Wonder why all the cold votes? I've got an Echo and it's great. Plus isn't this £4 less than the current Amazon price?

I can only guess it is because this was £99 a few weeks ago and the Dot is only £49.99 but does the same thing.

£99 was for Prime customers only, of course.

I have the Echo Dot too, in a bedroom - the Echo has an amazing speaker, it packs a real punch - whilst the speaker in the Dot is really only good for voice announcements.

I suspect the price to drop when Google Home is out.

Why pay £100 extra for a speaker when you can get so much more for less. You'd have to be mad.

i voted cold as a £4 saving against buying it from Amazon not worth the 3% or so saving.

All in one device though, no extra wires, no extra bulk, nothing extra to plug in - and I bought my Echo at £99 so it wasn't £100 "extra" :)

I sent my Amazon Echo back for 3 reasons:
- Was unimpressed by the Speaker quality of the Echo, it's not bad but found it disappointing = from a non-portable device I expect better quality, Bluetooth speakers in the same price bracket just sound better... I want better sound quality, the Echo is just above average.
- Alexa is a bit dumb, e.g. when you ask Siri/Cortana/Google "What is the temperature" they will just tell you but Alexa readers the full weather forecast for the day + she's useless for search + the voice recognition works really well but mainly detects mainstream artists, if you're listening to more obscure artists recognition usually fails
- There are not too many useful skills for the UK i.e. couldn't get a few of the ones I really wanted :-( https://ifttt.com/amazon_alexa/recipes

Might get a Dot and hook it up to better speakers... because I did like being able to launch radio and set alarm clocks etc.
Will see if there is a Black Friday offer or suspect price will drop anyway when GOogle releases their speaker in the UK at some point (but that might be months off)

IFTTT support is coming to UK Echo's soon, that's when it will really take off for me - pairing it with my home automation (Broadlink IR remotes and so on).

I got one, it makes the morning routine nicer being able to play the radio, listen to news etc without having to get your phone out. On the way out the door, just tell it to turn off. I just told mine to turn up the heating as it was getting cold in here.
