If you are looking for an alarm clock type thing, it works great. I like having a bedside Echo and the screen makes it much more functional. I use mine mainly as a clock and bluetooth speaker, but sometimes I use if for shopping and really like that it shows you the item you just asked about. It’s often just nice having a visual of whatever the Echo is telling you/doing.
My biggest complaints, which are minor and fixable, is that I don’t like any of the clock faces very much. Odd backgrounds or just look corny. I prefer analog, but without my glasses none of the faces are very readable for me. Also it will only set one time alarms for the next 24 hours, which seems silly.
I would also like an option to turn off the display on a schedule. I try to remember to turn it off before work but have forgotten a couple of times. I have the rotating cards thing turned off because I don’t need to see the weather every 30 seconds on it. So it will have the clock face all day, and a good portion of it doesn’t move. I haven’t noticed any burn in though. Also, I would love to see an OLED version.
Just be aware it is really not good for music, but works great for podcasts. It’s also not extremely loud. I have to put it at it’s max volume setting if my portable AC running (which is pretty loud) to hear it. I sometimes use it to play NPR linked with my big Echo in the living room as I am getting ready in the morning and works great (I haven’t done this in months because the news is too depressing on a daily basis).
I highly recommend it if you want an Echo and music isn’t going to be a primary use.
