Amazon Echo Show 8 Review: Third time’s the charm Score Details DT Editors' Choice “Not too big, but not too small, Amazon has an absolute gem with the Echo Show 8.” Incredible value at $130 Size is perfect for any space Simple, on-device setup Strong audio performance Lacks YouTube integration If Goldilocks were to somehow stumble into Amazon’s headquarters, she probably wouldn’t have an affinity for either the 10-inch Echo Show or Echo Show 5.
