Amazon has just put the 4th-gen Echo Dot on sale for $27.99. At 44% off the retail price of $49.99, this is the second lowest price that it has ever been. The only time it has ever been cheaper was Prime Day last year when it was $3 less. This current sale even beats out the Black Friday price, which was $2 more, so if you’ve been waiting for a good price to pick one up, now is definitely the time. It’s available at this price in Charcoal (black), Glacier (white), and Twilight (blue). Alternatively, you can get the Echo Dot w/ Clock for $39.99, which is just $5 more than the lowest price it has ever been. If you have a 1st or 2nd-gen Echo Dot, this latest model sounds significantly better and is worth the upgrade, especially if you use your Echo Dot for music. Compared to the 3rd-gen Echo Dot, the newer model sounds slightly better, mostly due to the speaker pointing slightly forward instead of straight up, but not different enough to upgrade for sound quality alone.
