The good: The Echo Flex is super cheap. Its USB port allows for flexible usage. The plug-in design means you can put the Flex almost anywhere in the house.
The bad: The small speaker isn’t built for high-quality music playback. Echo speakers pose legitimate privacy risks.
CNET rating: 4 stars out of 5 (Excellent)
The cost: $24.99 to $30.48
The bottom line: Amazon still has work to do to protect user privacy, but this new Flex boasts some impressive smarts.
