    Amazon Show Mode Dock

    |
    Posted .

    I suppose it's doing what it was designed to do, which is be a cheap alternative to the echo show. For the most part it works, but I constantly have to reset the tablet in show mode despite it always being connected to the dock. It's very frustrating as I'm not sure exactly what the triggering action is for throwing it out of show mode. The other frustrating thing is despite the tablet being connected to a Bluetooth speaker, voice commands are still recorded using the tablet's microphone. This means you have to be practically on top of the tablet for it to hear your commands. I would bypass buying this and put the money towards purchasing an echo spot or echo show.

    Had an old fire tablet that was collecting dust, I have been wanting to get a new alarm. I saw this on sale, it was very easy to set up and works well. I am glad I found a new use for it. I bought a 10 inch I use all the time for reading kindle books and for recipes. It's a good buy well worth getting.

    Nice dock, performs as described

    |
    Posted .

    As others have commented, I agree this dock is not worth its full asking price. I got mine on BB’s website as an open item and had a $5 RZ certificate. Getting this for a reduced amount was fine, but I wouldn’t pay $40. As far as the dock itself, there’s not much to it - plug it in with the included adapter, attach your Fire tablet, and you have yourself a stable charging cradle that can automatically turn your Fire tab into a Show. I have a Show (and countless other Amazon devices), which is used in our kitchen, while the tablet is docked on my bedroom nightstand and then connected via Bluetooth to my Bose Soundlink Mini. This docking station isn’t going to make your tablet recreate the sound a Show provides...not sure how one could expect it to? Anyway, it’s Amazon’s continued effort to take a low risk approach in to getting us to buy yet another peripheral device to use in the house. They’re not marketing these to make a ton of cash, rather, to help those who won’t get a Show, or those who have a nice Bluetooth external speaker, use their tablets for expanded use.

    Bought this is an open box item and like it. I had a fire HD eight tablet lying around that wasn’t being used and turn this into an echo show. Works well, Not sure it’s worth the full price but if you can pick one up on sale it’s nice to have

    Surprising Bang for Your Buck

    |
    Posted .

    When my fiancée insisted on buying this dock for her Kindle Fire, I was reluctant to plunk down this amount of money for essentially a charging dock. However, it has basically turned our $80 Kindle Fire into an extra Echo Show device (one of which we already purchased for $200). So now we've got an extra smart home device in our kitchen/living room to play music, check the weather, check sports scores, and read the news. And we're still learning all that it can do.

    I bought this at the same time I bough my Fire HD 8 because I don't always want to be holding a tablet in my hand. Besides using it for charging, I use the dock for view videos.

    Great way to use Alexa

    |
    Posted .

    Bought for my mom for the Fire 8 HD and works great. Only downside is no additional speaker is on it since the Fire 8 is not that loud. Luckily, I dedicated a Bose Soundlink to the Fire 8 HD so when docked you can use Alexa from all over the house and hear her crystal clear, works great with music too.

    Although ordered as "brand new," when it arrived, the cover of the box was torn and top flap missing. It was taped over with a piece of packing tape that said "Inspected by Best Buy." It appeared that the charging cable had been out of the box. Otherwise the item appears to be okay and working as expected. Should have been discounted as "Open Box" item.

    We decided to buy this docking station since we already have the Amazon Fire HD tablet to turn into show mode. So far we are liking it.. does not have the leaker sound as the shows do but we are still figuring it out.

    Alexa Powered Home Security Console

    |
    Posted .

    I was thinking about getting the Alexa Show for my home security console. I noticed this item and since I already had a Fire 8 HD this was a cheaper way to go with about the same function without the speakers. It works great and with Bluetooth I can have my speakers also. Kind of a no-brainer.

    This is such a smart concept I’m not sure why other companies are doing this, but you get the dual functionality of having a android tablet and an echo show in one. What’s not to love. We actually bought these for gifts and then bought one for ourselves because our friends love the gift so much.

    Expensive dock, replicates echo show

    |
    Posted .

    The fire tablet dock is designed great and serves the purpose of allowing the fire to run automatically in Alexa show mode. With that in mind it is expensive for what it really is. The dock is about the same price as the tablet itself, but still much cheaper than an echo show.
