I was very resistant to having this type of device in the house, but apparently once you start, you cannot stop. I bought one, then two more, then one more, then two Chromecasts...will probably get at least one more of these and another Chromecast. We are pretty much Star Trek at home now.
Bought several to place in different areas in my home. Small, convient, great volume, excellent value. Family loves having the convenience of Google answering questions, alarms, and playing music. Happy with purchase.
