Score the best deal on the Amazon Echo Show 5 we've ever seen.

The Echo Show 5 just dipped down to $40, which is the lowest price we've seen for the top-rated smart display.

The Echo Show 5 packs all the usual Alexa-powered voice goodness and adds a 5.5-inch screen. The caveat is that this is the first-gen model that originally debuted in 2019, not the newer 2021 model with a slightly better camera. But given the $40 savings, we're willing to overlook the slight optical downgrade.

Note that the Show 5 might be better suited to your nightstand than to, say, a kitchen counter (though some may find the display a little bright, even at its lowest setting). Read Andrew Gebhart's Echo Show 5 review to learn more.
