In our Echo Show 8 review, we concluded that the Echo Show 8 is the best Alexa smart display ever. It's the middle-man in Amazon's Echo Show lineup, and it hits the sweet spot with regards to price and power.
It features an 8-inch 1280 x 800 resolution display, stereo sound, and built-in Alexa support, which means you can control it via voice commands. For video calls, it sports a 1MP front-facing camera and it even has a privacy shutter. In a nutshell, the Echo Show 8 supports all the best Alexa skills.

If the $99 price is still too high for your budget, Best Buy also has the smaller Echo Show 5 on sale for $69.99 ($20 off). It sports a smaller 5.5-inch display with a 960 x 480 resolution.
Keep in mind that we expect both Echo show models to be $10 or $20 cheaper on Amazon Prime Day, but if you can't wait till then — this is one of the best Echo Show deals you'll find.
