The Amazon Echo Show is on sale for $179.99 for Amazon’s Black Friday Sale. This is the lowest price that the Echo Show has ever been. Apart from being the best sounding device in Amazon’s Echo lineup, the Echo Show’s standout feature is its large touchscreen and camera that allow for new interactions and video calling.

Amazon’s Black Friday Sale is in full swing. One of the best deals among the bunch is the Fire HD 10 tablet for $99.99. This is the brand new tablet that was just released last month. It’s normally $149.99 and this is the first time it has ever been on sale. I personally own this tablet and think it’s great. You can install the Google Play Store on it in literally a few minutes directly from the tablet itself. The base model comes with 32GB of internal storage, but there is also a 64GB version on sale for $139.99, which is normally $189.99.
The all-new Amazon Echo Plus is on sale for $119.99 as part of Amazon’s big Black Friday sale. The Echo Plus is available in Silver, Black, or White. While this may look similar to the 1st generation Echo on the outside, it is a completly new device that has new improved speakers and circuitry. The bigest differentiator between the Echo Plus and the regular Amazon Echo, which is also on sale today for the first time at $79.99, is that the Echo Plus has a built-in smart hub. This allows it to control many smart home devices, like Philips Hue lights, without needing to have any additional hubs. While supplies last, you’ll also receive a free Philips Hue light bulb with your order of an Echo Plus.

This is the new model released last month that is capable of 4K and HDR. It’s Roku’s closest competitor to the Amazon Fire TV 3, which doesn’t look like it’s going to be on sale during Black Friday this year. While the interface isn’t as nice as Fire TV devices and it’s not as customizable/tweakable, Roku makes a very compelling product for those of you just wanting to stream content from major providers.

The included hub connects to the Fire TV via Bluetooth and the remote relays button presses through the included hub to the Fire TV.
