    "This is a great gadget for home, although not so much for work since it involves a speaker. It is really great for home though. I have really enjoyed the convenience of having messages read."

    "I just bought a house and it came with the Nest. So far I really like it because it's much easier to use than a traditional one! I can even hook it up with my phone to preset it before I get home on a hot day."

    "I don't know that these are really that handy, but I do like the sound quality. The sleek design fits right on your desk without looking obtrusive. But it just plays music, I feel like a 'handy gadget' should do more than that"

    "Alexa combined with eero makes a great wifi setup for those who don't want to think about setting up their wifi. Alexa by herself is good for house stuff like making lists, turning lights on and off, etc, but eero can't doo too much by itself."
