'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Did you miss out on Prime Day? Get the Echo Show 15 and get a free Echo Show 5

For only $249, you can build out your Amazon smart home system with both Echo devices and save $84.

Amazon Echo Show 15

Prime Day may have just ended, but the sales Amazon is offering are still ongoing. If you missed out on building a new smart home system yesterday, you're in luck -- right now, you can buy the Echo Show 15 for $249. It's full price, but there's a catch to the savings. You can also add the Echo Show 5 (2nd gen) for free, saving you $84.

This is a great deal because you can build a smart home ecosystem with both devices. You can put the Echo Show 15 on your living room wall as a handy calendar and timer while you keep the Echo Show 5 in your kitchen to walk you through the latest recipes. Or vice versa, or you can use the Show 5 as an alarm clock in your bedroom.

With the Echo Show 15, you get a 15.6" Full HD (1080p) smart display that, when not in use, can display your favorite family pictures. For long-distance families, its 5MP camera captures images and can be used to catch up via video chat. You can also catch Netflix, and other hit shows from the large display.

Plus, with the addition of the Echo Show 5, you will get a smaller 5.5-inch screen that comes with a 2MP camera for those same video chats with friends and family. Like its larger sibling, you can watch Prime and other streaming services from a small device.

Since Prime Day was yesterday, we don't really know how long this deal will last. If you're looking to upgrade your smart home, be sure to pick this bundle up today for $249.
