The show 5 is a good unit that does most things just fine. The voice recognition is very good and intergration with amazon works very well for listening to music or audible books. The screen is a little small for some things and the sound is sometimes a bit muffled but great with headphones if that is a problem. It works great as a clock by your bed but only one problem is the screen stays a bit lit up with auto dim so you get a dull glow which is not to bad but it would be better if it was darker as I have seen on some different types of google home devices. All in all it is a good device with a few tweeks it could be a great unit.
