I've been interested but didn't like it enough to pull the trigger but we got one as a gift. It's month 2 and the novelty is wearing down but I still like it quite a bit for music and kitchen timer help. If you're in house music system is top of line it's probably no use but it's hard to beat the convenience of tunes on command.
Everyone I know who has one and loves it has young kids who like to play with it
Kids love it. Almost to an annoying level.
My buddy has an Echo and I have a Google Home that I got as a gift. The Google Home doesn't have as many tie-in apps yet, and it's annoying that I can't change the trigger phrase, though hopefully that's coming. But I find the google home more useful. It's more conversational in it's abilities, and it's good at answering things it can easily pull up from google itself.
In general, I'm not a huge fan of amazon devices at this point though, so I admit I'm biased.
