We have google homes and Alexa's. To have a visual means to communicate with these personal assistants are great. The Echo Show 5 price, if you purchase two was unbeatable. The sound beats the Google Nest Hub with much deeper bass. Also, the Echo Show 5 has the ability to set complex alarms, such as two separate alarms, and only on weekdays, or specific days. (this would work well for those who want two alarms in the morning). The display dims nicely at night so it doesn't bother you. I really like this one.
