1. Amazon Echo 4th Generation

There are multiple Echo Dot models on sale now, but this one (currently on sale for $60) is at the top of our list for several reasons. For one, it's the newest version available featuring all the Echo Dot features you love, like using Alexa to answer questions, set alarms, tell you the weather or stream music.

If you already own an Echo device, you can even play synchronized music across different rooms. But don't just take our word for it. One impressed buyer shares, "It seems to produce more sound than previous versions...with a little more bass and louder max volume. This could also be due to the sound-mapping feature that allows Echo to maximize the sound by detecting the acoustics and shape of the room."

2. Amazon Echo Dot 4th Generation (2020)

You also can't go wrong with the 2020 version, especially since it's 60 percent off. You can go from setting timers while you cook to blasting music and talking to friends and family with the Alexa app and devices. It has a shorter height and width than the newest version, so you won't have to sacrifice your precious counter space.

3. Amazon Echo Dot 3rd Generation

The 3rd Generation Echo Dot has many of the same fun features—Alexa-set timers, news briefings, impressive sound quality for playing all your favorite music—but comes at a lower price point than the latest fourth gen for those looking to save even more (it's on sale for $18). It’s also more compact, making it the best option for folks who don’t have a ton of space or prefer the effect of practically invisible speakers.
