I like the dot. I’ve got an older one plugged into an ancient set of 2.1-channel PC speakers that sound better than the full-size Echo.

We have ours configured to opt-out of any human review of any voice interactions. It still does a good job of hearing me yell at it from under the car in the garage, even over music.
