    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.

    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.

    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.

    Put your Fire HD 8 in "Show" Mode!

    |
    Posted .

    I bought this charging dock in a whim and it turned out to be a nice little addition to my Fire HD 8 tablet. Show mode is a nice feature, and just like my echo dot plays my Sirius XM channels with a nice display, and responds quickly to my requests. Plus the unit overall has a small footprint on a table or nightstand. I would have liked to give the unit 5 stars but the tablet does tend to slide off the cradle a bit easy. Specifically, it slides off the charging pins easily. I don't see it causing any real damage to the fire tablet as it is in a case in the cradle but it does seem to be a poor design for an Amazon product. I'm pretty certain the next version will be much better!

    Using it as a smart alarm clock

    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.

    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.

    Got it for grandma during the peak of the of the pandamic with the tablet so we could stay in touch and plus i know she's not going to charge it. Well user error is a factor when your 80+ but it does work when used correctly.

    Great stand

    Posted .

    Makes the tablet just like the Amazon show. You can control your tv, roomba and any other smart devices you have by talking to it while it's on the stand. However it doesnt show its online like the other devices so it goes through the alexa app instead of the way the other Amazon devices do so when you drop in or video call it calls all devices with the app installed.

    I initially bought this for myself but then received a Show as a gift. My granddaughters also had a Fire 8 HD so I gave it to them so they could call my show from their Fire 8 HD. The youngest (4-1/2 years old) also likes the Show mode to ask Alexa to tell her a "jote" - she has a little trouble with C and K sounds. But Alexa understands and proceeds to tell her a joke.

    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.

    Great tablet for simple use

    |
    Posted .

    I use my tablet pretty much for streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, etc) and for the occasional kindle book read. It definitely is not meant for anything powerful, as it tends to run a bit slow even with my basic use and being not even a year old yet. For the price you can't beat it though. As for the alexa show part of it, I haven't had much of a need for it, but it is nice having a charging case/stand. I think that's worth the extra few bucks for me.

    The show mode charging dock allows you to use your tablet and Alexa while charging your tablet. I use one in the kitchen to look up recipes, get the weather report and control the living room lights. The one in the bed room acts as a alarm clock and controls the bedroom lights so I don’t have to stumble to bed.
