Grab a 1st-gen Amazon Echo Show for $70

The second-gen is better, and the Echo Show 5 is just $20 more -- but you should still consider this.

No, that's not what Alexa looks like. It's an example of video calling, which you can do easily on the Amazon Echo Show.

The arrival of new Amazon Echo products means price breaks on older Echo products. Case in point: The Echo Show 5 went on sale earlier this week, and today we have a huge sale on its first-generation predecessor.

Today only, in fact, and while supplies last, Woot has the first-generation Amazon Echo Show for $69.99, shipped free for Amazon Prime members. (Everyone else pays $5.) Last time around, back in March, it was $99.99.

The Echo Show is Amazon's Alexa-with-a-screen product. You get all the voice-activated goodness of a smart speaker, but with a lovely 7-inch screen for watching videos, making video calls, checking the feed from your security cameras and so on.

It's not perfect, though, as you'll learn from reading CNET's Echo Show review. There's a second-generation model that's better looking and better sounding, but it's currently priced at $229. (It'll definitely see a discount on Prime Day next month.)

Meanwhile, there's also the new Echo Show 5, which sells for $89.99 -- but has a smaller screen and speaker. If you want a bigger screen and bigger sound, the original Show is a tempting buy at this price.
