Stopped using Amazon as their delivery service has really gone utterly downhill

In the old days they were truly amazing , now they're truly abysmal

Also bought a fire stick only to find it's replicated in software on ATV and much nicer too

Amazon promised Ring Doorbells would get HomeKit support how many years ago now? Hmm??? Still waiting, no sale.

Couldn’t disagree with this first comment more - apples and oranges here (no pun intended). Have solved many a friends/neighbors/relatives problems with eero mesh systems. (And easier for me to “support”. Will absolutely pick up another set at this price - don’t even know whose problem it will solve yet. But it won’t go unused.
OK, I may have overgeneralized. Some of these products are surely nicer and more useful than others. I was mostly talking about the echo and fire devices. Either way, on principal, I personally still wouldn’t use eero or ring devices even for free. Case in point, I actually stopped using my Roomba the day I heard Amazon bought them. The company is becoming scummier by the second, and their online marketplace has gone from innovative and disruptive to trashy and deceptive.
