Amazon devices such as the Echo series of smart home assistants, the Fire tablet series and the Ring Video Doorbells are, without a doubt, among the best in the market. However, they are still relatively unaffordable even at discounted prices, especially in the case of those with the Alexa smart assistant enabled and those supporting hands-free voice commands through an Alexa device.

Fortunately, you do not have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a functioning Echo, Fire tablet, Kindle and other Amazon devices and accessories because you can now buy them pre-owned online at the Amazon Warehouse. And it is good to know that these can be bought either used or refurbished. While used pre-owned devices are fully functional, refurbished ones work and look like new, and backed by the same warranty as a new device.

With all else said, these are the best pre-owned Amazon and Alexa devices that will save you hundreds of dollars:

1. Amazon Echo Plus (2nd Gen) - Used

Featuring a built-in temperature sensor, the second-generation Echo Plus has the same features as the original Echo, including voice control via Alexa. It now has a built-in Zigbee hub to easily set up and control compatible smart home devices -- no need to buy a separate hub when controlling compatible smart lights, switches and more. In addition, it also allows you to call or message almost anyone hands-free.

2. Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen) - Used

Add Alexa to any room with the all-new second-generation Echo Dot. Featuring a fabric exterior, this popular and compact smart speaker can fit perfectly into small spaces.

The Echo Show 5 is proof that big things do come in small packages. Featuring a 5.5-inch smart screen, it lets you connect via video call or messaging with friends and family who have either the Alexa app, an Echo device with a screen, or Skype. Like all other Echo devices, it is built with multiple layers of privacy, with an off button that disables the built-in microphone when not in use.

4. Amazon Echo Studio - Used

The Echo Studio surrounds you with studio-quality sounds from every direction, thanks to five "strategically positioned" speakers that point to each direction. Through an Amazon Music HD subscription, it gives you unlimited access to millions of songs in Ultra HD as well as a growing catalog of 3D music, which has up to 10x the bitrate of standard streaming services.

5. Amazon Fire HD 10 - Used

The Fire HD 10 lets you enjoy downloaded content anywhere you go, with up to 10 or 12 hours of mixed-use battery life.

It also allows for hands-free, voice-controlled streaming and commands via Alexa.
