In exactly 2 months, to the day, I'm going to be moving in to my dorm as a college freshman. Of course, I'm almost done getting all of the essentials for my room and have done extremely well with my original budget (I made myself a budget and bought quality items at good prices thus far) and I have been wondering if a HomePod for my room would be a useful/cool bonus. I already found a guy willing to go $245 cash on an open box one (of course I'm going to successfully pair them first, before paying) and was curious if I should jump on this opportunity at this price. I was thinking of getting some LED (no-bridge) lights to link with HomeKit too, so we can use Siri to control the lights. I know it's not the most frugal decision but my work has 2 HomePods and I've been able to hear the sound quality and that alone has almost sold me. Can anyone endorse or criticize my thought process here? $245 HomePod worth it? LED Homekit lights?
