Amazon has an extensive line of tech products, ranging from smart speakers and streaming devices to affordable tablets, smart home gear, and e-readers. We like that these products offer an easy entrance into the smart-home market with their intuitive functionality and newbie-friendly price points.

Encompassing audio, entertainment, and home security devices that'll fully streamline your life, our two tech editors reviewed the 30 best Amazon tech products. Read on for our Prime-worthy picks and get ready to make an upgrade.

Amazon Fire 7 Tablet
Amazon amazon.com

The Fire 7 tablet features a fast processor, 16GB of storage space, and a microSD card slot while still maintaining a budget-friendly price point.

This tablet's smaller size is perfect for travel, and it also doubles as an e-reader. You can watch from various show platforms and apps, plus play games and video chat with friends thanks to its onboard cameras. You can expect around 7 hours of battery life with the Fire 7 tablet.

Amazon Fire HD 8 Tablet
Amazon bestbuy.com

If you're willing to spend a little extra than you would the Fire HD 7, consider shopping the Amazon Fire HD 8, which offers longer battery life, double the storage space, and a slightly bigger screen. It's perfect for web browsing, social networking, and streaming video. Rather impressively, the tablet also has built-in stereo speakers. There are five colors to pick from: black, white, plum, slate, and blue.

It’s worth noting that Amazon also offers a slightly pricier Fire HD 8 Plus tablet, which has a similar design and specs, as well as support for wireless charging. There’s even an optional wireless charging dock for the slate.

All-new Echo (4th Generation)
Amazon amazon.com

The fourth-generation Echo sports an all-new spherical design, and it offers improved sound quality thanks to its 3-inch woofer, dual-firing tweeters, and added Dolby processing. Compared to past iterations, the newer model is faster at answering your requests, and it features a built-in Zigbee smart home hub, meaning it can be used to control connected home gadgets and appliances.

As you’d expect, the Echo is still the perfect companion for your budding smart home so that you can control your lights, locks, and music playback with your voice. The Echo serves as an intercom, and Alexa can tell you the weather, news, or traffic. It also works wonderfully for setting timers, getting answers to questions, creating calendar events, reminders, and shopping lists.

The Echo’s fabric shell comes in three colors, charcoal, glacier white, or twilight blue, which help it blend into any room.

Amazon eero 6 Mesh Wi-Fi 6 Router
eero amazon.com

Amazon’s latest router features Wi-Fi 6, a new wireless standard that transmits signals more efficiently to deliver faster speeds and better performance. The router can support more than 75 connected devices simultaneously and reaches speeds as high as 500 Mbps. This two-pack covers up to 3,00 square feet, but if you have a smaller floor plan, Amazon sells a single router you can opt for instead to save some cash.

This device is more than capable of streaming in 4K, playing games online, and hosting video calls, but if you have a gigabit internet connection and want even faster speeds, you should opt for the eero Pro 6 instead. You can expand your network by adding more routers with both models.

Echo Dot (3rd Generation)
$34.99 (13% off)

Over the years, the Echo Dot has become Amazon's most popular smart speaker — probably due in part to its affordable price. This model is 70% louder than the second-generation Dot (but it's quieter than the newer, more expensive 4th generation Dot), and it flaunts a slimmer UFO-shaped design with a fabric cover that comes in four different colors.

The Echo Dot will hear your voice commands via seven built-in microphones, and it can connect to a larger audio system via Bluetooth or a standard 3.5-millimeter audio cable for an even fuller sound. It's the cheapest Echo speaker money can buy.

Amazon Smart Plug
Amazon amazon.com

Amazon's smart plug is designed to deliver seamless integration with the virtual assistant Alexa. It's also incredibly easy to set up. All you need to do is plug it into a power outlet, and Alexa will automatically detect it.

Once you're connected, you can just ask your smart assistant to power your appliances or lamps off and on. Or, you can schedule them to turn on and off automatically and control them when you're not at home.

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
Amazon amazon.com
$37.99 (24% off)

The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K allows you to enjoy 4K HDR content from all major streaming services.

Powered by Amazon Alexa, we like that the streaming player allows you to search for content by speaking right into the remote. It supports Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision and has a gorgeous, easy-to-use interface. Its remote also lets you turn your TV on and off and adjust the volume.

If you haven't upgraded to a 4K TV just yet, consider this more affordable Amazon Fire TV Stick instead, which supports Full HD TV sets.

Amazon Echo Show 8 (2nd Generation)
Amazon amazon.com

The Echo Show 8 slots in between the standard 10.1-inch screened Echo Show and the significantly smaller Echo Show 5. Like its smaller sibling, it features a privacy shutter for covering its camera when it's not in use. It does offer a much louder and fuller sound, though.

It's the perfect smart home companion, so you can easily control your smart devices with your voice or a simple tap of your finger. It also works wonderfully for video calls or streaming video on streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, and Hulu.

Amazon Echo Show 5
Amazon amazon.com

Editor's Note: Amazon recently launched the second-generation Echo Show 5, which costs $85. We plan to review it soon.

The smallest Echo Show rocks a 5.5-inch screen — nearly half the length of its sibling's display, making it an excellent alarm clock. The Show 5 allows you to control your connected thermostats, light bulbs, or video baby monitors with just a tap or swipe of your finger.

It also doubles as a smart speaker and has Alexa on board for asking questions or playing music. This option does have a camera for video calls. We're happy to see that it also features a camera shutter for blocking the lens when the camera is not in use. The Echo Show 5 was dubbed the smart alarm clock to get by the Verge.

Amazon Echo Show 10 (3rd Generation)
Amazon amazon.com

With its large 10-inch touchscreen, a 13MP camera (the best camera we've seen on a smart display), and a new rotating base, the recently improved Amazon Echo Show smart speaker adds a whole new way of interacting with Alexa.

The Echo Show 10 has a motorized base that allows its display to swivel itself to face you, so you always get a good view of the screen. It works wonderfully at keeping you in the frame during video calls — even if you're moving around in the kitchen.

In addition to being the ultimate video chat companion, the device is perfect for playing tunes, managing your daily routine, and controlling your connected home. The Amazon Echo Show can also play videos or stream live feeds from your wireless security cameras.

Not only that, it shows you recipes, delivers the news, and acts as a Zigbee smart hub, which makes it easier to set up and pair accessories for your smart home. The sound quality of the device is impressive, too, thanks to its 3-inch woofer and two 1-inch tweeters.

Echo Buds Wireless Earbuds
Amazon amazon.com

If you want to take Alexa with you on the go, opt for Amazon's latest pair of wireless earbuds. They feature active noise-reduction technology, along with water resistance.

These buds can play up to 5 hours of music at a time, but their charging case provides an extra 15 hours, making them a very travel-friendly option.

Ring Stick Up Cam
Ring amaozn.com

The highly-rated, easy-to-use Ring security camera is a nifty gadget that will let you keep tabs on your home 24/7 in full HD and send you alerts if it detects motion. It's also compatible with Amazon Alexa and is good for shoppers on a limited budget.

Blink Indoor Security Camera
Blink amazon.com

The Blink security camera is an inexpensive battery-powered camera that'll help you keep tabs on your home while you're away. Its features include infrared night vision, motion alerts, and a built-in microphone that supports two-way audio. Since it's wire-free, you can place it practically anywhere in your home.

The camera integrates with Alexa, so you can arm and disarm the camera or get a live feed (if you're Alexa speaker has a screen, of course!) Amazon also sells a waterproof outdoor Blink Camera, as well.

Amazon Fire HD 10 Tablet
Amazon amazon.com
$124.99 (17% off)

The Amazon Fire HD 10 is simply one of the best tablets you can buy, especially if you want to use it as an entertainment hub. Key specs of the Alexa-powered slate include a crisp 10.1-inch display with Full HD resolution, stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, a speedy octa-core processor, and up to 12 hours of battery life.

Of course, the Fire HD 10 will also give you access to Amazon's vast library of content, which includes books, music, video, and apps. Lastly, if you plan to crank out a lot of emails or text, consider opting for the Fire HD 10 Productivity bundle, which comes with a Bluetooth keyboard and an annual subscription to Microsoft 365.

Amazon Fire TV Cube
Amazon amazon.com

Get yourself a Fire TV Cube, and you can pretty much ditch your remote altogether. This smart streaming device is equipped with several built-in microphones and a speaker that can pick up your commands from another room.

Not only can you ask Alexa to pause, increase volume, or turn off the TV, you can even ask the smart assistant to order pizza, change channels, and switch inputs. As you'd expect, this streaming device packs all the latest viewing apps, whether you're a Hulu or a Netflix household (or both!).

Amazon Kindle Paperwhite
Amazon amazon.com

The newest version of the Kindle Paperwhite is a game-changer for book lovers — it's waterproof and also comes with Audible. You can pair it with your Bluetooth headphones and listen, rather than read if you choose.

It still has instant access to thousands of books, a glare-free backlit display, a battery that lasts for weeks, Wi-Fi, and a 6-inch touchscreen.

Amazon Echo Studio
Amazon amazon.com

The Echo Studio offers more immersive, room-filling sound than any other Amazon speaker since it can sense the acoustics of your space automatically. It's equipped with five drivers and supports Dolby's Atmos tech to add even more depth to your music.

For the audiophiles out there, this baby has three midrange 2-inch speakers, a 1-inch tweeter, and a large 5.25-inch woofer.

Compared to the Amazon Echo Plus, it has a larger footprint, a physical mic mute switch, and the ability to be paired to your Fire TV for surround sound.

All-new Ring Video Doorbell 4
Ring amazon.com

The Ring Video Doorbell 4 is one of the most feature-filled smart doorbells you can buy. It wires to your existing doorbell line (or can be powered by a battery) and offers a sharp 1080p picture with a wide-angle lens, so you can see everything at your doorstep.

You receive instant alerts (and quick preview clips) to your smartphone when visitors press the doorbell or trigger a motion sensor. You can also watch a live feed anytime on your smartphone, tablet, or computer, making it a useful tool for monitoring new Amazon Prime packages on your porch.

Ring Video Doorbell Wired
Ring amazon.com

If you're on a budget, the Ring lets you upgrade your smart home for around $50. While it isn't battery-powered like the Ring 4, it still offers night vision, motion-sensing, and two-way communication, and it records in high definition.

Amazon Fire TV Recast
Amazon amazon.com

For those who are cutting the cord on cable, consider purchasing this Fire TV bundle to save some dough and get free access to cable channels. It allows you to record local channels such as ABC, CBS, NBC, and Fox (among others) in high definition for free. Just make sure that you also purchase an antenna.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation) Kids Edition
Amazon amazon.com
$39.99 (33% off)

The Amazon Echo Dot Kids Edition includes a 1-year subscription to Amazon's FreeTime Unlimited service, which gives your children access to ad-free radio stations, playlists, audiobooks, and games.

The smart speaker will automatically filter explicit songs from Spotify, and you can use it as an intercom to tell your children when it's time for bed or dinner. As you'd expect from an Echo, it still answers questions, controls smart home devices, and sets timers. This one gives kid-friendly answers, has integrated parental controls, and was designed to look like a tiger or panda.

However, like with any other kid-focused gadget, you should err on the side of caution before placing one in your child's room.

22 of 30
Amazon Kindle Oasis
Amazon amazon.com

Want to step your e-reader up a notch? The Kindle Oasis is thinner, more durable, and sharper than any other Kindle.

Plus, it offers more storage space for books and comes with Wi-Fi or 3G for downloading them anywhere. It's waterproof and has Audible built right in for listening to audiobooks. If you have a large content library, we recommend opting for the 32GB configuration, which offers enough storage space for thousands of books or more than 160 audiobooks.

23 of 30
Ring Stick Up Cam
Ring amazon.com

The Ring Stick Up Cam can help further bolster your home security both indoors and out. The camera is completely weatherproof and offers 1080p Full HD live streaming. Key features include motion detection, night vision, a built-in siren, and two-way audio.

There's also a battery-powered variant for those hard-to-reach areas that aren't near an outlet. The cameras integrate nicely with your Amazon Alexa devices, so you can ask Alexa to show you what the cameras are seeing on your Echo Show or Fire TV.

Amazon Echo Dot (4th Generation) With Clock
Amazon amazon.com

The fourth-generation Echo Dot shares the same globe-like design as its sibling, the Echo, but measuring in at just 3.9 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall, it's much smaller. It comes in the same colors, charcoal, glacier white, or twilight blue, but is half the cost.

We think the Echo Dot is the best bedside speaker since it’s equipped with a LED display that shows the time, alarms, and outdoor temperature. You can even tap the top of the Dot to snooze your alarm.

For those who find the clock too distracting, Amazon also sells a clock-free variant as well that's a little bit cheaper.

25 of 30
All-New Ring Alarm 8-Piece Kit (2nd Gen)
Ring amazon.com

The Ring's eight-piece security kit comes with a base station, a keypad, four contact sensors, a motion detector, a range extender, and a video doorbell. You can easily add more sensors to the system if you wish.

You control the system via a sleek smartphone app or using your smart speaker. Of course, Ring Protect will also alert you in case something happens while you're away.

The coolest bit about Ring is its competitive subscription pricing of just $10 per month for 24/7 home monitoring.

Toshiba 32LF221U21 Fire TV Edition 32-Inch Smart HDTV
Toshiba amazon.com

If you're in the market for a new small TV, you can skip the streaming box and opt for this HD smart TV from Toshiba, which was developed in collaboration with Amazon. 

It runs a full-fledged version of FireOS, so you have access to more than 15,000 channels and apps. Its remote control has the virtual assistant Alexa built right in.

All-new Fire HD 8 Kids Edition
Amazon amazon.com
$89.99 (36% off)

Amazon Fire HD 8 Kids Pro Tablet
Amazon amazon.com
$89.99 (36% off)

This 8-inch tablet is built with older kids in mind (6-12 years old). It sports a more grown-up design with a slimmer protective case and gives your youngsters filtered access to the web. 

The tablet offers older kids a wider selection of content to pick from. Whether your young ones want to listen to streaming music, watch Disney+, play Minecraft, or do a Zoom call with their grandparents, you can grant them access to download a wide catalog of apps. It's worth mentioning Amazon also sells a variant with a larger, 10-inch display.

Amazon Luna Controller
Amazon amazon.com

Amazon Luna is the tech giant’s new cloud-gaming service, which lets gamers play their favorite titles instantly wherever they have an internet connection. The service uses Amazon’s Web Services (AWS) to easily stream games to their Fire TV, PC, Mac, iPhone, or iPad.

Users can play Luna with a keyboard and mouse, but we recommend splurging for this controller. It connects directly to the cloud, so you can play your games without the annoyances of pairing or having to worry about your button presses stuttering.

Echo Flex
Amazon bestbuy.com

If you want to put Alexa in every room of your house, stock up on the Echo Flex. It's a tiny speaker and microphone that you plug right into any wall outlet. It also features a USB port at its bottom, which can be used for accessories like a night light or motion sensor.
