No dislikes. My wife has MS and AI is not just a fancy pile of gadgets, it's a real work saver for anyone disabled. it adds yet another step to our home entertainment, a big thing for us as we are limited in a few ways.
I've had a Echo Snow 1, 2 and now 3rd generation and they seem to improve at each step while keeping the old feature compatibility that I've come to love and rely on. I use the drop-in feature with each of my machines as well as relatives and they all work flawlessly. The skills from my old machine transferred completely to the new machine once it was setup properly to the Wifi and Alexa apps. I have the new moving head version but it doesn't move very much as I think that the ambient light in the room I have it in is not that bright to activate it properly. The screen is very clear and connects to other skills like video cameras quicker than my earlier models.
Alexa mostly displays something different than what is being requested. You must be tech savvy to set up devices. My Ring video doorbell works, but I must still walk up to the unit to activate the mic, easier to use my phone which is closer at hand. Overall, not user friendly and poor setup guidance available. What is working well, is the camera following your every move and the system listening in to your conversation.
I have this product for a while now and I can undoubtedly tell this has been my worst Amazon Alexa product purchase yet. The motion sensor doesn't work as intended. The screen moves around despite you turning it off. (After factory reset too). Alexa doesn't hear you at all. Have to restart device to have her listening. This has happened in multiple instance. Cool concept but can't deliver. So, DO NOT BUY.
The motion feature is abit annoying. Sometimes it works really well. Other times, it says it hit something, but there is nothing near it. Sometimes it won’t move at all. Love the screen quality. Has great sound. Overall it’s pretty good device
Even quality and Alexa integration is extremely good. The way the screen follows you is actually a handy feature. We were deciding between the Echo Show 8 and the 10 and were quite glad that we spent the extra money on the 10.
