    People scoring 3rd gens on sale for 20-30$ so the 60$ price tag is a big difference

    The problem with modern reviews is that criticism just isn't so well understood. Reviewers tend to run with the idea that criticism is about finding something to have an issue with when what consumers need is for merits and demerits to be weighed appropriately. A $10 increase in price for something that includes new hardware is not as significant as it is being made here. Moreover, the title of this review is unnecessarily prejudicial. Not very informative but super clickbaity.

    The two million or so subscribers CNET has just aren't being well served. Well, unless they weigh entertainment value over objective insight.

    Charger? Echo dot doesn't have battery. How come its charger? It's power supply unit. Unboxing so dull.

    If I can see the time on echo, I wouldn't have anything to ask of it. 😂

    This video is 5 minutes too long.

    And how serious can we take a "technical reviewer" that calls its power supply a "charger" and "charging cable?"
