I am not going to spend more for a "smart speaker" than an Amazon fire 7 HD. Why pay more for a speaker than a fully fuctional tablet?
Minimum price it listed for a smartphone $200? Never paid that much for one, plenty of very good Android phones under $200, even $100 if you shop around at all. Also, AT&T Iphone SE's available for $149 many places.
I think it was $900 for a desktop system? Clueless. I build my own, but easy to build or buy a system for half that.
Start the catagories at 0$ to your current min, and also show an N/A. I am not going to buy a camera these days. I have several sitting around because no one in the family uses one since they always have their phone with them. Why pick a price for something I know I would not buy. Seems to just gather useless information.
Maybe only 2 questions that I would answer the same way I did if there were appropriate choices.
Bluetooth speaker? $0
Tablet for a 'child'? That depends...is the child 6 or 16? Different tablets.
Phone? My current $25 phone is just fine. More granularity...
I have no reason for a 4K TV over a full HD TV my vision isn't that good at TV ranges, and I would be getting a monitor or headset for 4K. So the real question is how much value would I add over a standard TV of the same size, and the answer is: it varies. For a 40 inch bedroom TV it would be worthless, for a living room movie display I would consider it maybe $50 extra for when I'm walking past the TV to not notice pixels.
I have no reason at all for tablets, drones, smart speakers, bluetooth speakers, earbuds, etc.
