    If you are ever in a situation where you need to repair or tinker with your Amazon Echo device, you are in luck. It's not too tough to work with. The folks at iFixit got hold of the device and performed their dissection of it. they gave it a 7 out of 10 on the repairability scale. The most complicated part is some fabric in the speaker design that requires cutting and removing/replacing of tape. Here's the summary from the iFixit article bellow.


    As we shared in our preview and review of the Amazon Echo, while the device will not completely knock your socks off with the wow factor, it is still a very handy and capable voice activated audio device. If you can manage to score yourself an invite from Amazon to get one, it's probably worth the investment for most folks.
