    A new kind of help.

    5/5
    Hi, I'm Ian a disabled man living alone but suffering with MS. Until now I never realised how helpful my new alexa from AO could actually be. Rather than having to physically try to get things done in my home I can now ask my smart friend. I've connected it to my lights, alarm system and even my new smart robot vacuum cleaner! . I also now have no more problems having to bend and change cds as my alexa has more music than even I can manage!! More people like myself need to be aware of these gadgets and how much help they give. Thanks for the help AO. Ian Smith

    Keeping in touch has never been so easy

    5/5
    I reviewed the Echo Show 8 during the lock down and oh boy! if there ever was a device that came into its own it was this device. I don't think any of us could have imagined just how important, in the absence of physically being able to see someone, it would be to be able to have a clear visual conversation with a loved one. The Echo 8 show allowed us to just do that, with each of us having an Amazon account (which is free) we purchased and set up 3 of these so we could keep in close contact with our loved ones. The setup isn't easy but once its done working the device is all voice controlled and simplicity itself. The screen is large and sharp, the built in speaker load and clear. You can use the Echo Show conventionally as a music player to listen to your favorite tunes but the display offers you so much more! We were particularly interested in the 'drop in' feature as my father in law is disabled and sometimes struggles to get to the phone. This feature just requires a voice command from our side to automatically connect and view into his living room, which gives us peace of mind. My father in law actually finds it easier to use the touch screen to call than he does by voice command and so its nice to have a choice. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this device although I would advise that you check out other competing devices serving a similar purpose to see which suits you best. With that in mind and my only criticism; this device doesn't follow you around the room as it's image is fixed, worth mentioning as this might be a deal breaker?
