At a retail price of $89.99, it's pretty hard to argue with the value proposition of an "all-new" Echo Show 5
smart display, especially when considering Amazon's other "all-new" Echo Show
(the one sporting a 10.1-inch touchscreen) typically costs $229.99.
But although the e-commerce giant no longer sells the original 7-inch model itself, Woot has the 2017-released Echo Show up for grabs today only at an exceptionally low price of $69.99. That's 20 bucks cheaper than a few months ago
and, unlike the pre-owned units in "good" working condition that fetched $49.99 a pop most recently
, these are brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged devices backed by a standard one-year Amazon warranty.
Don't forget that Woot is actually an Amazon subsidiary, which means the manufacturing company of the first-gen Echo Show will fulfil these orders itself, also offering free standard shipping (estimated delivery on August 9) for Prime members.
In addition to the aforementioned 7-inch touchscreen that you can use to watch stuff in the kitchen or bedroom (like a stationary tablet of sorts), the original Echo Show also has dual 2-inch stereo speakers going for it, a 5MP camera, and no less than eight microphones with beamforming technology and noise cancellation. That means the built-in Alexa assistant should be able to hear you from across the room and show you stuff, as well as stream music, answer your questions, make voice and video calls, and control compatible smart home devices without you ever having to lift a finger and actually touch the device. All for the low, low price of $69.99... if you hurry.
