    9.5/10 Rating ! This has to be one of the best AI products I have used in a while. The screen for an smart home device can be very useful. It really can't compete with the Google home because the Show just brings convenience without having to call it. I primarily use the show to turn on/off my smart lights, simple cooking measurements, simple math, travel time, store location hours, calling, and video calling.... and more. Everything else like, news, calendars, weather are already displayed on screen. Definitely worth it if you plan on using all the minimum features above.

    After playing with a friend’s dot, I decided to go check them out. We decided to go with this unit. This gives you more music than you could ever imagine. The sound quality is really good. I’m able to ask Alexia what’s in my calendar, I use google calendar. You can ask about weather, traffic just about anything. Alexia also likes to play knock knock and tell jokes. It’s very cool to be able to ask for recipes and see the information on the screen. I was able to buy one get one $150 off. Awesome deal, I gave the second one to my son for his new apartment.

    I came across this on sale and thought it would be cool for my office, but I didn't realize how useful it would be! I use it constantly to set reminders, add things to my calendar, and play music. I do a lot of business with other countries, so I love being able to simply ask alexa " what time is it in China?"! A other fun feature is being able to make quick video calls to coworkers, I can have a quick discussion or show them something without having to leave my desk!

    I love this and my wife and son do so more. It’s got all the bells and whistles as the newer costlier show except not as big of a screen (still plenty big in kitchen) and not as good of sound quality as the latter but if picture quality and superb audio are what you are seeking then you should consider other options. Personally, I have it linked via Bluetooth to my stereo and it is awesome. The main thing we use screen for is video calls and recipes for my wife. At this price I highly recommend!

    Great sound-quality and a robust assistant

    This is my first Echo/Alexa product, and I must say I'm quite impressed! Having experienced the limitations of Siri on the Apple platform, Alexa definitely delivers more accurate and complete responses to a variety of requests. As for the sound quality as a bluetooth speaker, it is of surprisingly good quality. The screen and the visual information it provides is quite useful as well, and the touchscreen is quite responsive. Overall, for the price point, this is a quality product that delivers what one expects, and then some.

    The Show is an Interesting New Alexa Device

    The Show is the new Alexa Device with a video screen. I like being able to see a screen when you ask questions, and you can view videos too. I also like that you can see the temperature, and date without having to ask. I like you can view a video of a recipe, not just see text. The one item missing from this great device is the capability to hook it up to your surround audio system. I have two dots and love them. The Show would be perfect if I could also hook it up to my audio system. Even though this feature does not exist, it still is a great product.

    The Amazon Echo Show is a great addition to my smart home. I can turn on/off, dim, or change color of any light, view any one of my cameras, unlock any door, change the temperature on my thermostat, open my garage door, and much more. It’s amazing what this device does! If you have any smart home device, the Echo Show would be a great addition to your home. Heck even if you just wanted a voice assistant with video capability this would be great! At the end of the day, this is the best voice assistant out there today!!!

    Nice novelty...sort of a waste of a screen

    Great sound, easy set up. The screen seems sort of wasteful now that I've been playing with it. Maybe it has the capability to work as a digital picture frame....I'm just certain yet. I was able to set one picture to it...Not multiple. Would be nice if could be used for Hulu or Netflix and stuff since the picture and sound are so clear. I like the visual to do and shopping lists. Still worth the purchase. A good want to have...just not a must have...then again maybe I have not tapped into all it can do.

    We bought this for our family and so far we LOVE it! We did need a subscription to be able to listen to music roughly $10 a month but totally worth it. There has not been one song Alexa can't find. The sound quality was a ton better than we expected it's actually very good quality. The bonus games are great for entertaining and family fun. News updates are a neat addition as well as fun facts and weird facts. I love that it can also start my Ford. Still learning many new features every day and have yet to try the video calling but will soon.

    A great upgrade for an existing Echo user

    The price is a little high, but overall I have been pleased with the upgrade over the standard Echo. I have the original, two 2nd gen dots, and now the Show. Sound quality is improved on the Show. We have a Philips Hue system, Wink, Ring, and Wemo stuff all running perfectly with Alexa. The screen on the Show isn't really necessary for most things, but it is nice to be able to video chat with family and peek in on the camera at the front door. If all you do is play music with your Echo, you don't need this, but overall I think it was worth the upgrade for us.

    Not as convenient as ads make it seem

    This item seems great on the ads, but it reality it can’t do nearly as much. To get it to do more you have to download “skills”, some of which work well and others of which do not. Some are reviewed, but many are not. Connecting is often difficult and sometimes the password you use has to be the same as your Alexa device (which no body tells you). I’m sure with some practice this device will be fun and useful, but learning to use it and sorting through the skills is a pain.

    I must admit that when I purchased the device, I was not exactly sure what I would do with it. But as soon as it was set up, I put it to work. First of all, very simple, it was a tried and true alarm, waking me up on workdays, but not on weekends. With Amazon Music, I was able to play, and with the help of Bose Speaker, send through my home virtually any type of music I wished to listen to. Great source also as to weather reports, news updates, and to find out the drive that I will have to work. All in all a great device.

    I love the Echo Show. The only reason it’s not getting 5 stars is because sometimes the picture can shake but, it comes and goes and doesn’t stay. They have updated the Echo Show also. I’m not even sure you can get this version any longer. Anyway, I like being able to drop in on family and actually see their faces (especially on my grandmother who has health issues and doesn’t always fess up when she needs help. A picture is worth 1000 words)

    Bought this for the kitchen. I use it to listen to podcasts, watch Youtube videos, and watch recipes while doing the dishes or cooking something. The audio is loud enough and the screen size is big enough for Youtube watching. It looks pretty nice too, so it goes with the furniture and the white-ish color of my kitchen. It would be nice if the audio is more higher quality at loud volumes (like the Sonos or Bose). But I understand that this may not be doable at this price point.

    4th Show purchase

    This Show was purchased for my mom. She is older and lives alone so the Echo products make me feel a little better about that. She simply loves all that the Show has to offer, even shows her Ring front door camera. And since she thinks she needs to report the weather to me, she can see the 7 day forecast. And at $99.00, this device is a steal. Now I have two, purchased one for my son who lives in Florida and now my Mom. She and can both watch the grandchildren grow up without being there.

    Each and Every Version of Amazon Home Products have gotten better and better. This Amazon Home is the Cadillac of Amazon Home Products. The News Feed on the screen at all times along with the options and features that you can do with this is amazing. I love the ability to call my mom and dad and see what they are doing. They are only a couple of miles away but it is fun. I also love playing music on the device since most of songs include the words. You might find out that you have been singing the wrong lyrics for as long as you can remember.

    This was our first Amazon Echo product in our home. The price sold me. It didn’t matter to me that it was an older generation. I use the Echo Show for everything from checking the weather while preparing breakfast, listening to music while cleaning, and looking up recipes while cooking. My kids love to ask the Echo for jokes and whatever random questions they have at the moment. Sometimes this Echo Show does struggle to pick up on voice command but rarely.

    I absolutely love that I can ask Alexa to play any song and she will!! While I'm sure there are playlist limitations, I haven't encountered that since buying in November. Alexa is great for weather, news and helping answer my daughter's funny questions about random things. I would recommend purchasing. However, we haven't used the calling feature to another Amazon Show, we have used the calling feature from the app to our Show & that works fine.

    The Echo was so good, I ended up getting the Echo Show as well. At first it was a device that I enjoyed using for various reasons, one being that I could ask Alexa to watch any YouTube videos I wanted to watch. Then one day, I asked Alexa to play a video and she responded by saying,"Google is not supported on Echo Show." Until YouTube comes back as a skill, the Echo Show probably isn't worth the extra money. I'd say stick with the Echo if you have Amazon Music or Spotify, or the Echo Dot if you only use the echo as part of your smart home.

    I am an electronic nerd and this thing is okay but could easily be much better. You can watch prime movies on it but it will not show you the full library. you have to know the movie name or ask to see a gernre and it will only show you 20 movies per genra. 99% of everything you do has to be done by voice which is annoying. it has a touch screen let me navigate the device with the touch screen. don't make me speak to it to make it do everything. on the positive the speaker is decent and it is nice to view my arlo cameras on it
