Do I like the Show 8?
Yes
Do I like the Show 5?
Yes
Do I prefer the show 8?
Yes. But. If you plan on using either as an alarm clock/bedside, definitely go with the Show 5.

Overall. The Show 8 is great. But why, why, whyyyy, is the time displayed so small in one place on the nice big display? Like seriously amazon? Can you not give us the option to have a full display clock? It makes absolutely no sense. Not sure who's bright idea it was on the R&D team but it's ridiculous. The rest of the display is a waste when not being used. It's so frustrating.

Also. The show 5 has more options for settings and displays etc.

There's certain things that all the Show models will not do in cansda which is silly and frustrating. But overall they are OK.

If the Show 10 wasn't so crazy in price vs the Show 8, I'd buy one. But a $200 difference at current lsiitng for an extra 2 inches is silly. It's only $30 to go from the 5 to the 8. Why is it $200 to go from the 8 to the 10.
