Amazon’s largest Echo Show is now on sale at Best Buy and Amazon. The Echo Show 15 was originally launched in December at $249.99. Today, it is available for $199.99 at both Amazon and Best Buy. The Echo Show 15 appears to be a smaller version of the Echo Show 10, with slimmer bezels. The Echo Show 15’s 15.6-inch screen offers additional functionality that is not available with other Echo Shows. It can display multiple blocks at once, including calendars, weather and reminders. Although the Echo Show 15 will not replace your living room TV, it is far more comfortable to watch streaming videos or view cooking tutorials on YouTube in the background. The display can be mounted horizontally or vertically to your wall. However, if you don’t want to mount it, you will need to buy a stand.

The Alexa-equipped Echo Show 15 mimics Samsung’s The Frame TV. It is designed to look like a framed piece on your wall and allows this tech to be placed innocuously on your walls. Although the widgets are limited and the smart speaker’s camera may not be as good as it could for a device this expensive, it still makes a decent HDTV and is a great organizing tool for your house.

Amazon’s Echo Show 8 smart display is available at a discount at Best Buy and Amazon. The original price of the compact smart display was $129.99. Both retailers have now reduced it to $89.99. This is a great opportunity to upgrade and match its lowest price.
The Echo Show 8 had a 1MP camera. The 2021 model has a front-facing 13MP camera that can zoom in and pan, as well tracking you around the room. The new model has a more robust sound quality and an eight-core CPU. However, the exterior design is unchanged and Alexa’s full capabilities are still available to the smart speaker.
The choice between the second-generation smart speaker and the last-gen Echo Show 8 is easy if you plan to use your Echo Show 8 for video conferencing or Zoom calls. Even if you don’t plan on blinding your camera with the integrated cover the processor upgrade is a great option. Check out our review.

Beats’ new workout-focused earbuds offer a lot of features. Although wireless charging would have been nice, the earbuds rely on USB to charge. We were still happy with their sound quality and other conveniences offered by the Apple ecosystem, such as support for Apple’s immersive audio feature and hands-free voice commands. Other notable features include the earbuds’ excellent active noise cancellation and fintipped design. This prevents them from slipping out of your ears when you exercise hard.
The Fit Pros can still be used with Android devices. However, their Apple-centric features make them a solid choice for iPhone users who are looking for a pair of earbuds that will last. Read our review.

The Roborock S7 robot vacuum is a great choice if you want to get spring cleaning done. It’s currently on sale at Amazon for $479.99. This is the lowest price we have seen for the $649.99 robot vacuum, and it will be available today only. Although the vacuum-and mop combo lacks some functionality, we still consider it one of the best robot vacuums available right now.
The S7 Plus still offers the same features as the S7 Plus, including voice activation, programmable cleaning zones and seamless transitions from mopping hardwood to vacuuming carpet. The main selling point of S7 Plus is its auto-emptying bin. This feature is not available in the standard S7. The auto-empty station was not a great feature of the robot vacuum, but we did review it in our review of S7 Plus. So you don’t lose much if you go for the more affordable model.
This multitasking robot can vacuum and mop, and it does both well. It can lift its mop to vacuum your rug without getting it wet. It can be used with an auto-empty charging base (sold separate) and has Alexa and Siri voice control.
