Amazon is selling their wifi plug for $25, and in this one you get 4 for $25. So I obviously went with this one. They came in the box, in there little spaces, not out of place. It took me a little while to set them up because govee has two different outlets. Wifi plug (this one), and smart plug. After 10 minutes of trying to setup I figured I was trying to connect the wrong one. So then I clicked on the wifi plug and the setup was quick. Then I plugged my lamp in to the wifi plug and then went to see how to connect to alexa. It was really easy to connect I just clicked on smart plug thing on the govee app, click settings and then the Alexa thing and boom, connected. The wifi plug never randomly disconnected. Every time I've told Alexa to turn lamp on, it always worked. One fatal flaw though is that you can't put 2 smart plugs by each other. I had one of them plugged into the top outlet and when I went to get another to put into the outlet below I realized it was too big. If I were govee, I would do what amazon did, make them a rectangle so you can have 2 by each other. Also when there is power outage the plug automatically connected to my internet, which is good because some products forget when they loose power. Apart from the size issue these are really good and function just as described.

Pros:
-Can turn on via the button the side
-connects to wifi automatically after power outage
-works with alexa (it says it works with google but I haven't tested)
-has nice click sound when turning on and off
-can also turn on/off with govee app
-can set timers
-responds fast when you ask alexa

Cons:
-round shape makes it impossible to put one under another one (look at pictures)
-takes 15-30 seconds to reconnect to wifi after being pulled out of the wall and put back in (to simulate power outage)
-Only has 2.4ghz (meaning it wont work with 5ghz internet)
-App needs to know location for some reason
-ipad app is just a port of iphone app but bigger, the app doesn't fit the whole screen on my ipad
