Think about buying this for my elderly parents to do video chat. Anyone has experience with this 1st gen device or I should look for 2nd generation which cost much more? TIA

We have this model for ourselves and both sets of parents.
Love it so much!

It was just about that price once on woot. They had a coupon that was applying 25% off.

I have two of these and a 2nd gen. Obviously the 2nd gen is much nicer, but besides looks and sound, they are basically the same.

I love mine, I don't know his anyone can complain for under 100 bucks. The software is updated so you can do things like hulu and YouTube and the speaker is just fine. Video chat is simple, we gave my mother in law one since we have a baby due in a couple weeks and she uses it for all sorts of things.

I absolutely love this device and use it just about on a daily basis with my parents... It is by far the best sounding echo... The screen is meh... But it definitely gets the job done.

I've had this for more than a year. It's mostly useless. When I open Silk or Firefox to play a video, it will auto-close whatever you're doing to go back to the home screen. It's a shame because it could have been a nice media device but Amazon has severely limited its capabilities. The Google Home Hub can at least stream videos I play from my PC on VLC.

Got this last time for 50.00 with the woot coupon. Love it but I think 90.00 probably too much for gen 1 now. 50.00 for sure a buy.

If you listen to music, go with 2nd gen definitely. If not, get the first gen

I still use 1gen and I'm def not at the point where I feel the need to upgrade. Videochat is great and not that difficult on it.
