    Echo Show, Spot or Dot?

    Hi There, Looks like Amazon is almost dominating the smart speaker space. There are different varieties in the market like Echo Show, Spot, and Dot, and they all seem to be doing the same things but differ in sizes. If you are to purchase what would you be recommending? Some good reviews to differentiate the different Amazon Echo varieties here

    I have a Sho, a Spot, A dot and 2 Flexs. It depends on what you are going to use it for and where you are going to locate it.


      Starting to tinker with TTS to the Alexa devices here. I have one Amazon Dot connected to the Russound distributed audio system. Also tinkering now with a CCTV Alexa Monocle plugin with is a reverse proxy for the cameras to show up on the Amazon Show.

      As IanIreland mentions above it is related to what it is you want to do with the Alexa Devices.
