Amazon's Fire HD 8 tablet features a 1,280 × 800-pixel display and impressive 64 GB of storage. You can also enjoy front- and rear-facing cameras to help you snap photos and videos in between watching movies, playing games and reading your favorite books.
"I’ve been using Fire tablets since the first one. They are great for entertainment. Where it’s not necessary to have a Prime account to use this tablet having one makes this tablet shine. It’s great for reading watching videos, listening to music and auto books and playing simple game, and shopping. The battery is outstanding the screen looks great," said one happy customer. "It’s an outstanding value."
Want to catch up on your reading in 2023 the modern way? The Kindle Paperwhite Signature Edition Bundle holds all your books but weighs just six ounces. It also grants you access to Amazon’s ginormous Kindle library — get thousands of titles delivered straight to your e-reader. Read for up to 10 weeks without needing a recharge (not a typo). The Paperwhite has a screen that looks like, well, actual paper, so you can get more of that real-book feel. This set comes with its own case and stand.
"When I read about the new Kindle Paperwhite, I really couldn’t believe I needed another device, but I am an avid reader, and it just sounded great," said a satisfied shopper. "I ordered it. I love it. It reads so much like a book, has more memory and holds a charge for longer. It was a great buy."
If you have a big home, then you know the struggles of getting Wi-Fi to the far corners of the house. The Eero Pro 6 Mesh Wi-Fi Router can cover up to 2,000 square feet of space and support more than 75 different devices at once. It's Wi-Fi 6–compatible for the fastest speeds, and you can expand your network as needed to create a more reliable, more secure internet.
"I originally had a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 Triband router, but since I have a two-storey, the rooms at the far back weren’t getting strong signal. The house is 2019 square feet, and even with the antennas (six of them), it still could barely reach the upper rooms. With the Eero Pro 6 mesh system, I only have one SSID and constant coverage. I’ve had absolutely no drops in signal, even with all my devices (seven DirecTV stream boxes, six phones, three tablets, Smart thermostat, Echo Dot, three smart TVs). This was a great buy," one user said.
The holiday season just passed, and unfortunately many people found their packages missing from their porches. What's the easiest solution? Installing a video doorbell! Not only does this give you an easy way to greet guests when they arrive (even if you aren't at home), but it provides you with a real-time feed of anything going on around your home.
"We finally got a Ring doorbell when on a great deal over the holidays. The quality is great, and it's so handy to answer the door without getting up. Yes, that is a little lazy but most people are just trying to sell something so I'd rather stay comfy," said one comfy homeowner.
If we had to recommend a single smart display above all the rest, it would be the Echo Show 15. Between its large size, the ability to display multiple widgets to keep track of your life, and the slew of other features, it's already a great value proposition — but now it even includes Fire TV functions. You can watch all your favorite content while you cook, or even boot up picture-in-picture to view a security camera feed.
"This Echo Show is fantastic. The screen graphics are crisp and clear. Easy to display integrated family calendar, running shopping list, music playlist. It recognizes profiled users and adjust the screen to the user. Add and remove shopping list items using Alexa. Integration with the security doorbell announces to us 'someone at the door' and automatically displays the camera view. We are still learning, but this Show is impressive," one user said.
If you're looking for an easy-to-use TV, you can't go wrong with the Omni series. Between the support for HDR and Dolby Digital Plus, the 4K resolution, and the easy access to more than one million TV shows and movies, it's a great set-up-and-go set. It comes with a lot of bonus features, too — and right now, it's $120 off.
"Bottom line: This is a great TV. Gaming in 4K and watching movies/shows looks amazing. There are a plethora of options to fine-tune the picture settings," said one happy viewer. "My favorite feature is the Smart-HDR setting which makes SDR look much more detailed and have better contrast. The FireTV OS is my favorite over everything else (Roku, AppleTV). Best purchase I've made in a long time."
The Echo Dot 4th Gen looks a lot better than the old hockey puck design, but more than that, it produces a surprising volume of sound. You can even link multiple Echo Dots together for a sort of surround sound experience. Plus, if you have the Eero Mesh Router, you can use one of these as a mesh relay to further extend your Wi-Fi through your home.
One user was more than a little impressed. "I still can't believe how good it sounds. We stuck it in our showroom at work for some background music. Before a remodel we had a very expensive sound system that we no longer had room for after the remodel. No regrets as this feels the entire showroom with great sound!"
This pint-sized display is only 5.5 inches on the diagonal, which makes it the perfect choice for use as a bedside unit. You can glance over to see the time, get a read on the temperature outside, and much more. It can even be used for video calls!
"So, we have these in every bedroom, the kitchen, living room and balcony. I love the connectivity that it offers. The voice recognition can be kinda trying when you say 'Alexa' and every device, phone and even the Fitbit responds but hey, that's the cost of having a smart home," one five-star reviewer said. "I might buy a weatherproof after-market case for the balcony device, but so far its been at least 18 months and there's no problem. I like to connect to the Ring camera and watch my bird feeders."
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
