Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) sitting on a nightstand

The old adage states, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” A perfect example of this, Amazon’s Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) is more than a year old, yet it still holds up rather well in the grand scheme of smart displays. Even better, it’s now more affordable than ever at just $34.99 ($50 off).

There are a lot of Show-branded devices in the Echo lineup, but in terms of the Echo Show 5, this second generation version is the latest and greatest model, even with a release window of June 2021. Don’t let that date deter you, though, because this device is a solid one.

Amazon Echo Show 5 2nd Gen

The Amazon Echo Show 5 2nd Gen is a compact smart display with a 5.5-inch display and Alexa support.

For starters, it’s one of the most affordable options of the Echo Show bunch, even without the huge $50-off price reduction. Its 5.5-inch display is just big enough to enjoy content—like photos, video calls, and even shows from your favorite streaming services—yet small enough that it can easily fit on a nightstand. As you might expect, the Echo Show 5 also comes loaded with Alexa, so you can fire away questions and commands at will. There’s even a kid’s edition, also with Alexa support and one year of Amazon Kids+. This model’s on sale, too.

You can pick up the Amazon Echo Show 5 (2nd Gen) today for just $34.99 ($50 off). It’s available in several colors to match your preferences or decor, including Charcoal, Deep Sea Blue, and Glacier White. You’ll need to be quick, though, because this deal expires at the end of Thursday, October 27, 2022.
