I love it life-changingOwned for 2 weeks by when reviewed.
This was my fourth Echo device purchase. I have two Echo Show 5's, a 2nd generation dot, 4th generation dot and now this. We originally purchased an Echo Show 5 for our kitchen and I loved it so much, I decided to upgrade to the Show 8 and move the 5 to the living room. Luckily, the app makes it easy to change rooms for your devices because a lot of echo shuffling went on after that. We now have one in the kitchen, living room, basement, bedroom and bathroom. While I'm getting my lunch ready for work in the morning, I have Alexa show me the latest local news. Sometimes, I'll play some music, stream a show or watch a game while cooking. The resolution is pretty good for a small device and the sound is great. It's not stereo quality of course but it's not bad either. It was super easy to set up. I'm talking suuuuuper easy. Other than plugging it in, I didn't have to do anything. I didn't even have to add my wifi password because I was able to set everything up before the device even arrived thanks to a setup email. I didn't buy a stand for it but it fits just fine where I set it. It's not wobbly or unstable. I don't use my echos for phone calls so I can't say how well that works. I also haven't used the camera on this one, nor do I really have any immediate plans to, so I can't attest to that either. I honestly use these mostly to control lights throughout the house as well as the TVs, create shopping lists, set reminders and timers, view the cameras we have set up outside, check to see who is at the doorbell, ask about the weather and use for entertainment purposes. Speaking of entertainment, I have had issues with it opening Netflix. This isn't isolated to this device though. It's something I've had issues with on all my echo shows. You can ask her to, and she'll say she did, but nothing happens. I need to play around with it but haven't had time yet. Obviously not a priority. Other than that, she opens Amazon Prime just fine (of course) as well as Tubi. What's really nice is that I was also able to open my YouTube TV via the internet and scroll through the live guide with no issues. I have Amazon Photos and have made albums specifically for the show. I just did one that is all Christmas backgrounds and it looks so festive! I love it! I've also used their nature one and really like it. The photos are beautiful, although you do get news bits and Alexa tips inbetween. That doesn't bother me. Some of the tips are interesting and the news bits are informative. All in all, I think it's plainly obvious that I love the Alexa devices, having 5 throughout my house now. I'm not even sure I will stop there as I have considered getting one for our shop/garage as well as my workout shed. Time will tell there, but if you like the dots, upgrading to the shows are totally worth it and I'd definitely recommend.

Alexa UpgradeOwned for 1 month by when reviewed.
This unit is a fantastic upgrade to our old model that has long had issues with static and popping noises while playing music. Super annoying … so it was time for an upgrade. This unit is smaller, sleeker and the sound is terrific. We’ve had this for just over a month so far and we re very happy! I did buy the warranty just in case this time!

Show (In a home with Echos and Blink Camera)Owned for 1 month by when reviewed.
Bought this show along with a blink camera to be able to see the camera's feed on the show's screen. I love it. I have several echos throughout my house; I would always ask for the time or the temperature, so it's nice to just look over to this one and see that displayed. It's a big plus that I'm able to see art, landscape or my photos as a screen saver. Haven't gotten around to customize settings yet, but so far this product has exceeded my expectations. If I had paid regular price it would have seemed pricey, since I got it on sale and because it would help me see my camera's feed, I didn't hesitate to purchase.
