The arrival of new Amazon Echo products means price breaks on older Echo products. Case in point:, 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. There's a second-generation model that's better looking and better sounding, but it's currently priced at $229. (It'll definitely .)
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.
