Echo Dot with Clock and smart light.
Reviewed in the United States on January 8, 2022
Four out of five overall stars because there's several instances where it tells me it can't connect to the Internet, which I remedy by unplugging and plugging the device in again. All things function properly if you simply reboot them. There's times when it pixelates the sound quality, where the sound becomes quite choppy when connected to my 32" Insignia Fire TV in my master bedroom. The lightbulb itself functions perfectly, and is really quite nice to say, "Good Morning Alexa" and the lights turn on immediately. (It surely beats the clap on clap off concept.) Alexa, make the light magenta. Alexa, make the light blue. Alexa dim the light. She knows several colors. Turquoise is a favorite. Red, green. Goodnight, Alexa turns the light off. If you Google how many different colors it can do, you'll get the idea. I do prefer to sync my Bose Revolve Soundlink cone shaped speaker to my TV, without ever having choppy sound. I bought the Echo with the built in clock and to tell you the truth, the clock on the Echo is the number one reason I bought this. It must be plugged into the wall at all times. When the light, or any other light in the room goes off, the clock dims, and I do love that feature. The Echo does not have a rechargeable battery as my Bose does. It also shows the local temperature. My Bose is still my favorite for syncing up to my television and for listening to music One thing I did find quite helpful, is there's an app for Alexa that you can adjust the treble and the base for your Echo speaker to produce a richer sound. It doesn't produce the volume for listening to music that my Bose can. But I still am glad I purchased the Echo with the bulb. I picked it up in December on sale for approximately $34.99 with the lightbulb included. It does sync up with my iPhone.
