Amazon Echo (3rd Generation)

 

The third-generation Amazon Echo smart speaker is basically just a more affordable Echo Plus, thanks to some minor compromises you're unlikely to notice.

Powerful, well-balanced sound for the size and price.

Alexa can be a little awkward compared with Google Assistant.

Bottom Line: The third-generation Amazon Echo smart speaker is basically just a more affordable Echo Plus, thanks to some minor compromises you're unlikely to notice.

Amazon Echo: The speaker of the house

 

Amazon's smart speaker was arguably the breakout product of 2015. Two years later, Alexa is still going strong.

Amazon's voice-activated smart home speaker is undeniably futuristic, but it's also practical and accessible. With a rapidly growing slate of features, integrations and use cases, it's easy to get excited about the Echo's potential.

The Echo's sound quality is slightly uneven at times, with weak bass at high volumes. It also can't distinguish between different voices like the Google Home smart speaker can.

More than two years after its debut, the smarter-than-ever Amazon Echo remains one of the best connected home products money can currently buy.

Amazon Echo

 

The Amazon Echo is so much more than a wireless speaker. It's part voice assistant, part home automation hub, and its abilities continue to expand steadily. And it's a blast to use.

Excellent voice recognition. Works with many third-party devices and services. Regularly expanding support for new features. Fun to use. Solid speaker sound quality.

Speaker distorts at highest volumes. No access to email and messages.

If you're just looking for a speaker, chances are you wouldn't have read this far. Sure, there's really nothing you can do with the Amazon Echo that you can't do with the smartphone in your pocket. Yet there's something here that feels infinitely more...

Amazon Echo review: Betcha can’t buy just one of these voice-activated connected-home controllers

 

The Echo is so awesome you might want one in every room of your home.

Exceptional voice-recognition capabilities ; Very fast and extremely responsive ; Extremely versatile, offering music playback, connected-home control, weather and traffic reports, and much more ; Very good app support, plus an IFTTT channel

Inferior audio features compared to the least-expensive Sonos speaker ; Flash feature would benefit from additional news sources ; Can’t control Philips Hue lighting scenes

Amazon’s Echo is versatile and powerful; an terrific value all around.

Amazon Echo Review (2017)

 

Amazon couldn't have hoped for a better response when it created the smart speaker market three years ago with the original Amazon Echo . What once seemed like a vaguely creepy gimmick - a virtual assistant housed in a slender black totem - has gone on...

Few people an Echo in their home (although it could be a real boon for the disabled), but it is nonetheless an incredibly fun and useful gadget—especially if you have a connected lighting system. And with support for Philips Hue, Belkin WeMo, and Wink,...

Amazon Echo Review: One Smart Speaker

 

The Amazon Echo can stream music, answer questions, control smart home devices and help you shop — and it sounds good, too.

You can emulate many of the Echo's voice functions by using Siri or Google Now, but having the speaker always ready to respond is more convenient. And Alexa, while not as witty as Siri, understood me better than Apple's virtual assistant did. Add in...

Amazon Echo review: Betcha can’t buy just one of these voice-activated connected-home controllers

 

Amazon's Echo is the best voice-controlled product that I've seen at the consumer level. It's versatile, powerful, and amazingly quick to recognize your speech and then do something, whether that's answering a trivia question, playing music, giving you...

Inferior audio features compared to the least-expensive Sonos speaker ; Flash feature would benefit from additional news sources ; Can’t control Philips Hue lighting scenes

If I buy an Echo, I won’t take full advantage of its capabilities for a couple of reasons. First, my lighting system is already tied to my home-security system (Z-Wave systems can have only one master). Second, I’ve invested heavily in a Sonos audio...

Amazon Echo Review: "Alexa, why are you so cool and frustrating at the same time?" [Update]

 

Today we take a look at Amazon's latest hardware offering, the Echo, a small cylindrical device that listens for your commands and attempts to provide you with relevant information and music.

Why is Alexa Echo so cool and frustrating at the same? When it knows how to answer your question, the experience is like magic. When my wife decided to ask, "Alexa, what color is the dress?" and the response was, "The dress is blue and black," we both...
