  • Super easy to set up
    Reviewed by Sunny1 - December 3, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The show 8 easily set up, no problem connecting to my WIFi, It is bigger than I expected but I like it in this size. I especially like the long power cord. So far no problems with the show, it easily set up everything, is currently playing music, I hadn't realized how much I missed that. Answers questions quickly, shows recipes. A smart plug came included, not sure if plug is defective or damaged in shipping. Box was pretty smashed on the smart plug. Anyway I installed Alexa app on phone and smart plug doesn't connect. I am rating just the show, not the smart plug in this review. I haven't been tried making any calls but appears it can be done. Screen resolution is very clear. 8 " sound is excellent! Hands free calls.

  • My new best friend
    Reviewed by teris04202013 - December 16, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It was very simple to set up and complete the installation. I can control the lights, calls, set reminders, listen to music and so much more, just by taking to Alexa. I set up the lights with Alexa along with the smart plug and I can turn them on and off, just with my voice. I can call family and friends and also conduct video calls through it. The screen has a wonderful 8.0 that's perfect for video calls with my love ones. I love baking, so I can cook along while making the recipe using Alexa. I can touch the screen to complete tasks. I fell in love with this device and will continue to use it.

  • Very Nice.
    Reviewed by Anonymous reviewer - December 22, 2020

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love all areas of New technology. I love using any device that is Alexa enabled. With the echo show you are able to due multiple things. You can check the weather, look for recipes, play music from different apps, enable your calendar and add your pictures for the background. I am in LOVE! The only thing that I dislike so far is the fact that I cannot pull my Playlist from apple music. That is an update I would love to see. I would definitely recommend this and I am looking forward for any updates.

  • Nice smart home companion
    Reviewed by Greg - January 8, 2020

    We purchased two Echo 8's after trying the Echo Dot and liking it. So far so good, we have one in the kitchen and one in my daughters room. They act mainly as a smart assistant, clock, radio and have used it several times as a speaker phone to make calls. Pro's: Nice size screen, speaker sounds good, picks up voices easily, picture quality is good for the size and purpose, works well as a smart home companion for accepting commands, daughter likes how you can watch Youtube and Amazon Prime Video. Con's: Alexa isn't as 'smart' as 'Ok Google' when it comes to looking things up, bit of a novelty item after initial use period. Overall for the price I would definitely recommend it!
