    Update on the below; I received an email from Amazon following my below review offering support. I thought I’d give them a call the next day however, that evening my echo show which did have the night screen background which was almost the same colours as the night clock numbers making the time hard to see, changed to a dark / black background.Mysterious but problem sorted. Thank you Amazon assuming you did that?Nice unit, great sound generally very good. My only complaint is that I like to see the time when I wake during the night, its got some wavey white / blue background when in night mode which makes the white clock number hard to see as the colours blend in. I’ve been unable to change this so far. Note *only in night mode* which is why I give it 2 stars.The clock is fine during the day when my photos are rotating etc. Apart from that it’s all good. If anyone can tell me how to change this I will move it to 5 stars.

    Wish we had purchased this 12 months ago during lockdown!We have moved a family member into an assisted living complex and the Alexa Show is perfect for us to keep in touch many times a day.When the device is set up to ‘Drop-in’, it does this automatically without the person having to press any buttons to answer. We previously had problems with using mobile phones and FaceTime due to this.It has enabled us to encourage their recovery as we do daily exercises with them, read the newspaper together and do crosswords. It is like having them in the room next door but we can see and hear each other very clearly.It has also helped with calling assistance when he has been unwell or fallen.It is taking a while for staff members to get use to the Alexa Show as I am sure they have concerns about the device being able to watch them. It is today’s technology being used to help the wellbeing of individuals.Brilliant!

    I love the size of the echo show 8 I have had the 5 which was great but the echo show 8 is much better for me to read the recipes . The sound Quality is very good I listen to the Radio when I’m in the kitchen, also I like to see all the old photographs I have manage to upload on to the echo 8 I am getting good in my old age. Overall I highly recommend the echo show.

    Arrived a day earlier than expected. Bought on Prime day so excellent value. Already have the show 5 but absolutely love the 2021 version of the show 8. Its great how it follows you if you move. Easy to set up. Easy to customise to users needs. Never a dull moment with Alexa in the house. Added Skype so I can video callfamily and friends without an echo show. Looks great anywhere. Sound is clear and not tinny. Music sounds good. Love the bigger screen.Only thing I don’t like is the white power cord and plug that came with the black unit. Looks mismatched. I love that all the packaging (except the plastic covering the screen) can be recycled tho. Well done Amazon.

    Upgraded to this from a show 5 and.immediately noticed the differences. Not only the size of screen but also improved sound quality and other features like security and camera follow. The following feature makes calling other users easier, without the need to stand up throughout, also being able to use the device as a home security camera remotely is fantastic. Overall I am pleased with the new echo show 8, quality picture and sound, simple to setup and operate. I bought one for my parents who are in their 70s, even they found easy to use. and a great device.

    Loved my echo 5, love the 8 even more and bought the stand to go with it, just wish it could move around with the stand, love using the camera to look at my rooms with it, but it either needs to be able to swivel around or be set up high to use the camera function properly

    The device itself is excellent – having previously had an Echo Dot, and then an Echo, we visited family and saw the additional functionality offered by the Show, and figured that we had to have one. Really pleased with it. Great enhancement to the Echo.Pluses: The screen is excellent, the sound quality is very good (it can be a little ‘too’ bassy at times), and the functionality for drop-in (which we wanted to use for checking in on pets, etc) is very useful too. The fact that it has the privacy cover to give you peace of mind that people can’t literally ‘drop-in’ on you is excellent too. We’ve found it to be perfect for accessing any materials for which screen presence (rather than voice responses) would be useful. Ideal for recipes, very handy as a karaoke device, etc!Minuses: The device almost certainly needs a stand, which you have to buy separately – without one, it tends to sit too far back on its rounded back and so the screen (and camera) faces a little too upwards if you’re sitting further away from the device than a few feet. Additionally, as it’s very likely to sit on a side unit or a desk, without a stand it literally sits on the very surface where spillages may occur, and the wrap-around speaker won’t likely react well to such spillages.

    I have had the echo show 5 for quite some time now and love it, I had a debate with myself as to whether I could justify spending over £200 on the echo10 when it was released. I decided not to and glad I waited until this was released, all set up in no time as it was linked to my other echos I have, one in every room. I use it primarily for the music, but also the weather, news headlines and reminders, also to use the drop-in feature if I am away from home. All in all a great bit of kit, and I am so pleased I made the purchase, it is surprising how much bigger the whole thing looks against the 5” screen. My 5” show is now in my sewing room. Would highly recommend this if like me you feel the echo show 10 is a step too far.Update 21/6/2021 I still love my echo show 8 (2021) but feel gutted, to say the least, that 12 days after release date that this has £35 knocked off it for Prime day. This is the second time I have ordered something on pre-launch and it has been reduced significantly within a matter weeks, if it had been say £10 cheaper that would have been annoying, but 29% knocked off after only 12 days of it being on sale is a bit of a Mickey take. Lesson learned, do not buy anything on pre-order again, twice bitten but not a third time.

    I bought it on prime day so good price i mainly bought for ring doorbell and it works lovely if someone rings doorbell I just say Alexa show front door there is a small delay while it connects to ring then shows front door with a microphone in off mode as it is a touch screen I just touch the Mike and can speak and hear and see front door.I have a prime account and 3 sonos different named speakers one of the speakers has Alexa built in i have switched the mike off on that one and just use the mike on the show as it is much much better it picks m voice up from the other side of the room it also shows my selected photos at first i did not know how to switch it off then i read somewhere to say Alexa turn screen off and it did that obvious you might think not to me i am still learning it plays all my amazon music on any speaker i choose the sound is very good there is more bass on the show than my sonos speakers the picture quality is tremendous so lots of pluses for me it as exceeded all my expections and i think the best is yet to come well I can’t sit here writing reviews all day I’m off to listen my Johnny cash.

    My first intention was to use this Echo Show device in the kitchen for recipes and also weather and radio, I am still experimenting with it, so far I am pleased with what it can do.
