    I like it. I got it for $99 when it first came out. Sounds really good and I find it useful in the kitchen. Prime radio is decent too. Not sure if I would have paid more than 150 for it.

    yeah that was my position: they offered it to me at 99 originally and never processed the order. i found my copy of it and they want to send me a refurbished one but i dont know if i need one more gadget in the apt. space is premium here so everything has to justify its shelf space.

    I ordered one on prime day and it'll be here tomorrow. If it turns into a creepy cunt, I'll burn it.
