I love my echo products (I have 3), I'm committed to the eco-system, so am very happy with the Show. I wish the search was as good as google but understand they are different companies, that don't play nice. Alexa struggles sometimes to understand my Australian accent but hopefully this will improve, as Amazon invests more resources to their Australian customers. We also need the Apple Music integration in Australia sooner than later - come on Amazon. The micro-phone is very strong and hears me from a long way away. The screen quality it excellent and very easy to read or watch. Integration with all my smart devices is good (not great, as the TP-Link products become unresponsive too often and need re-discovering). The Wemo, Philips, Harmony and LG are very good. Before you buy, make sure you have decided what's important to you in functionality and how you're going to use it, as you will need to decide on Google or Amazon eco-system and which suits you the best.
