Three Echo Show devices are offered by Amazon and all three are great. The original Echo Show has a big display that makes it great for so much, but also very expensive at $230. The Echo Show 8 mid-size is a little more inexpensive at $130 and has an 8-inch screen that’s nice and big despite its compact shape. Our favorite is, however, the smallest model, the Echo Show 5, which takes up little counter space.
The $90 Echo Show 5 Compact Smart Display with Alexa has all of the excellent features of the two other models, which include all Alexa-enabled integrations. You can tell Alexa, for instance, that you have a Ring Video Doorbell and the Echo Show 5 is required for you to show who is in front of the door. This is only one of the millions of examples— the options are endless.
Although $90 isn’t an excellent price for your device, if you get one on Amazon right now, you won’t be paying nearly so much. Certified Echo Show 5 models are currently on sale for just $59.00, matching Black Friday’s price. The certified refurbs of Amazon will look new or you can return it, so you have nothing to lose at all.
