An £80 mono speaker.This ultra modern tech seems to be passing me by.


Definitely passing you by if you think this is simply a mono speaker. It's like calling a laptop a screen.

Interesting. Perhaps there are different versions of the same unit. My dot hears me in the next room without me needing to shout. The only issue I've had is on day two when she would repeatedly blank me when I called her name. She'd light up, and then ignore me. WTF?! Ignore me, in my own home!! An infuriating morning until I realised its Alexa and not Alexis.

So well done to you! We're defnitely the opposite - I can shout from up stairs to my full blown echo and she still does what I need but the dot next to the bed cant pick me up unless I turn to talk to her.

It is essentially a bluetooth speaker with mic. As clever as a smartphone app.

About time too! This has been 20 quid more than the brand new one for a week now...

I'm raging I never waited a few months til the price went down

I purchased this new and the echo dot when they were on sale on Amazon Prime day recently.

I kept the dot and returned the echo. I found the echo couldn't hear me over its own speaker but the dot has no problem.

I've noticed the same. I've 3 dots which are fab, no issues. My friend has the full size echo and when the speakers are playing on high volume, Alexa doesnt hear a thing, even shouting. Needs to be manually turned down for her to hear you.
The dots do recommend that linked speakers arent kept right next to it tho because you get the same issue so it's understandable that the full size echo struggles when it's part of the same speaker unit

Took the plunge, hard not to at that price!

Thats bevcause the dot is far, far quieter. The echo hear's me fine unless I take the volume above about 6.

Bagged a mew one from, Very for £70, so this is cold for me, but will ad heat anyway!

Wow, are you trolling or are you genuinely in the dark regarding what the Echo does/can do/will do??
Edited by: "bellboys" 4th Sep

Got an Echo and 2 dots on Prime Day and think they are great. Worth noting that Mutli-Room music feature has just been added. Meaning you can create a group of Echo's/dot's and play music across all of them at the same time (similar to Sonos). Currently only works with Amazon Music, Tune in radio, and a couple of others, but Spotify support is "coming soon". For my usage, it creates a very affordable household music system, with voice controls.

Where are the instructions todo this?

It's in the app now.takes about a minute to set up. Settings. Multi room and then select the echos you want in the group and give it a name. I have an echo upstairs and dot downstairs. Alexa play 70's rock EVERYWHERE

Just go into the Alexa app on your phone/iPad etc and it's an option in the settings - game changer for me and the reason I bought this, it goes along with my 2 dots and other echo in the house. Decent multi room on a budget

I managed to get the echo and 2 dots for £130, so bought them depsite not having multi room support, but this now makes them seem even better value (once spotify is added). Only slight improvement I would like to see is the ability to have multiple groups containing the same Echo device. At the moment you can only assign to one group. I have an Echo and a Dot downstairs, and a Dot upstairs. I can have a "Downstairs" group and an "Upstairs" group, but I can't then put all 3 in an "Everywhere" group. Hopefully will come with a further update later on.

I still don't really get what these are for. The only thing I use Siri for is to set timers when I'm cooking and have messy hands. Do you start using voice technology more when you get an Alexa or is it just not for me?

Didnt know that, only set up the everywhere group at this stage, but yeah, would think this should be an easy update in the future. Love it! Also impressed with how echo has learned to understand my beautiful Scottish accent asking for things on tune in radio

Even more so, I wouldn't use one for free - they gather all your private details, listen in to all noises around the house, all the time. Just put a cutout of Bezos in the living room and see if you're comfortable with that.
I'm normally not paranoid, but in this deal, Amazon is definitely not losing money.

I hope they enhance this further by allowing you to stereo piar two speakers...

Are these actually any good? I mean considering the speaker is quite basic, and that I already have a Sony Bluetooth speaker and sub setup connected to Siri, would there be any point in me buying this? I can't imagine the sound quality being much to rave (literally) about

Personally not fussed by this. Echo sound is more than sufficient for my living room, and the Dot's are more than fine for a bedroom/kitchen. If you need/want more, I would think a more expensive setup would be bettter, potentially using a dot connected for voice commands.

As a sidenote, its amazing how much more music I listen to (like when getting ready in the morning, or cooking in the kitchen) just because I can say "Alexa, play Spotify". Now also looking at getting smart bulbs and potentially a Nest/Hive thermostat.

We've noticed the TV doesn't get used anything like as much now we have the Echo. Already have Evohome (smart zoning system for heating) which we can now control via voice. And we also input our (EDF) meter readings via Echo. Plus I've just ordered some Xiaomi Yeelight colour LED bulbs (think Hue but a third of the price and no bridge required) direct from China which we will control through Echo. Wouldn't be without it now.

When and how? :-)

Cold from me. Brought a brand new one from qvc 2 weeks ago for 89.99

This is easy, buy when you need it, if you didn't need it then it was a mistake, but nothing major. If you needed it and used it then you bought at the right time.

So you paid £10 more and this is cold?

You do realise they are more or less brand spanking new. You won't be able to tell the difference. I would rather the customer service and warranty with Amazon directly than QVC.

10 extra for brand new everytime.

I had a problem with music prime and Amazon called me within 30 seconds so same customer service.

£89 for a brand new one or £79 for a second hand one????? Hhhmmmmm the mind boggles why so many people think this is hot.

Its OOS on qvc so that price is wholly irrelevant. And don't they charge p&p?

Or the Chromecast. I don't know so genuine question: can you buy the echo from google store? They are bitter rivals at the end of the day, both vying to be the first trillion dollar company. .

A few points, These are like brand new. We bought one and still had all the original packing not a fingermark on it. As for the not hearing you I had this problem you need to move it about /0 cm away from the wall and works fine.
