Pick up an Amazon Echo Show 5 for just $45 right now

Amazon pioneered the smart display product category with the original Echo Show, and there have been several upgrades and new models since then. The original Echo Show 5 was released in mid-2019 as a more compact smart display, with all the same features as the larger model. Now you can get one for $44.99 at Buy, a savings of $35 from the original price.

The model on sale is the original Echo Show 5 (model B07HZLHPKP), not the updated version that was released a few months ago. The first model has a 5.5-inch 960 x 480 touch screen, a built-in camera for video calls (with a physical privacy shutter), a 4W speaker, and the Alexa virtual assistant. You can ask it to stream music, look up information, control smart home devices, and anything else Alexa is capable of.

    This is the original Echo Show 5, released in 2019. It's almost identical to the current model, and Best Buy has it on sale for $44.99.

Even though the original Echo Show 5 is over two years old at this point, it’s almost identical to the model that replaced it. The 2021 upgrade improved the camera quality a bit, and also removed the 3.5mm audio output available on the now-discounted original model.
