I have the Echo Show 9... think I got it for $5 less.

Love it - works great for me and the sound is better than my Gen 2 Echo.

Highly recommended as an awesome smart alarm clock.

I noticed the same thing, with the Echo Show 5 I had to be in the same room and facing the unit for it to pick up my wake word while the dot works from any room. I just swapped the 5 for an 8 hoping it'll be better, the 8 is picking up my voice from one room further than the 5 wasn't picking it up from so it definitely seems to be a better mic. However, the 8 isn't very loud, I can hear it from where I am but it's not loud, whereas a cheap bluetooth speaker attached to my dot from about the same distance is significantly louder. That said, I'm only intending to use the 8 for clock radio-type purposes and it's more than loud enough for that purpose. I assumed the 2x10W speakers in the 8 would be louder than the 1x4W speaker in the 5 but, while I don't have them side-by-side, it seems about the same, just a bit higher quality with the 8.
