Amazon Echo, Echo Show, and Echo Dot are on sale for Prime members [Expired]

Amazon has discounted several of their Echo devices for Prime members. The new 2nd generation Amazon Echo is available for $79.99. At a savings of $20 off the regular price, that matches the lowest price that it has ever been when sold individually and matches the Black Friday Price. The Echo Show is on sale for $179.99 for Prime members. That’s $50 off of the regular price of $229.99 and is the second lowest price it has ever been. Lastly, the Echo Dot is $39.99, which is $10 off of the regular price. It was available for $29.99 for most of November and all of December last year, which is the lowest it has ever been. These Prime-exclusive prices are good through January 18 and is limited to one per customer per device.

    The Echo Show needs to stay at around $149-$179 permanantly and the Echo Spot should be lowered to $99 permanently. I feel like Amazon’s wanting too much $$$ for their current perceived value and worth.

    Tough sell after paying $129.99 for a Show at Target and getting a show with a plug for $175 at QVC. I think a new ceiling has been set.

    I think Amazon needs to settle this no-YouTube-app issue first
    before I indulge in any more purchases of any Amazon hardware regardless.

    I am more than unhappy with Firefox and Silk as YouTube players.

    Crap. Waste of time.

      Did you try using them? Because it links to by default and works almost exactly like the old app.

      Yeah, I’m not a fan either… With a device like this, it’s all about convenience. Adding a few extra commands here and there takes away that convenience.

      I haven’t tried Firefox because I think it’s crazy to install a browser to play YouTube on a device that is advertised as being able to play YouTube. (Silk was automatically installed…) But on my Fire TV’s, the playback through Silk definitely isn’t as smooth as the old webapp was. I’m surprised at that, because I’m assuming that the old app was basically just using a stripped down version of Silk.

    Anyone know anyway to make a security camera you already have display on one of these things? I have searched and found other people asking the same question, but mostly I have just found stories about the Echo Show.

    The security camera does not have Alexa support, but it will work with software like Blue Iris and iSpy. Seems like a shame to replace an already setup security camera system, especially when an Alexa compatible camera I tried has such terrible lag that you could answer the door from upstairs before the Echo Show loads.
