The battery powered Ring products do not work as great though. When trying to connect the Echo Show to a battery powered Ring device, I get a message saying something like, " The camera is asleep and needs to wake up and it could take 30 sec". This happens with my Ring Stickup Camera. So, if you want the best experience, you should buy the Ring Doorbell Pro instead of the battery powered versions.
One of my parents just came out of the hospital and sometimes just doesn't have the energy to even pick up a cell phone when we call. So, we have another Echo Show, just for her, in drop in mode.Read more ›
I currently own the original echo which is in my living room, a dot in my bedroom, and one at work. I have lights, fans, a thermostat, surround sound, and TV all connected to my Alexa devices. Of course I had to buy one with a screen. I'm a big fan of Alexa, the products have become a routine part of my day. As soon as the Show was available to preorder I ordered one without any hesitation.
Initially I wanted to put my show on a 70 inch TV stand by my 60 inch TV where my original Echo was. I figured it wouldn't look bad because I could use it as a digital picture frame also. I don't have end tables and quickly came to the realization that viewing a 7 inch screen from 8 feet away wasn't going to work for me. My Show now sits on my kitchen counter. I figured I'd get more use out of it in my living room because most of my Alexa enabled devices are in there and generally I spend more time in my living room than the kitchen. A few people mentioned why don't you put it on your desk.Read more ›
I’ve been using this device for a few days so far. Below you will find some of my initial impressions:
### What I Like ######
Good build quality: The Show has a nice, bright screen that has good viewing angles.
Good sound: The speakers on the Show sound much better than the original echo.
Easy setup: Setup was extremely easy, mostly due to the Show’s touch screen. After making a few selections, the Show was up and running in no time.
Content suggestions: When you aren't interacting with the Show, it continuously displays content suggestions. I like that it will suggest videos to watch.
Video content: I like being able to view Amazon Video, video news briefings, movie trailers, and YouTube videos on the Show.
Video calling: Video calling works as advertised. I like being able to initiate a call with my voice.
Music with lyrics: When playing songs from Amazon Music, you can see album art and song lyrics on the screen.
Home automation: Like other Echos, the Show can control your smart home products. The show has the extra ability to display camera feeds.
On-screen apps: The echo can display my calendar, reminders, lists, timers, local weather, and more. Because of this, I find the Show infinitely more useful than the original Echo.
### What I Don't Like ######
The Show needs more functionality that leverages the touch screen.Read more ›
