I'd imagine it's worth the extra tenner to get the regular one over the essential one. Just bought, thanks OP. Looks good and reviews are decent too. Came to €38.62 with the shipping charge.

Thanks for that, was looking for a google based clock for my parents as they already have a google home. They complain that their ancient clock radio switches the radio off after 59 minutes so the essential should be perfect. Love the nightlight feature too, not on the dearer one. They don't need a touchscreen clock so there was no point in me paying the extra.

I have this since last year in the bedroom.i find it great.use the alarm clock (set by my voice).ask for radio on the mornings that I'm off work.some spotify when taking a shower in the ensuite.good sound.it has a plus and minus button on top to adjust the volume.(I find voice control for volume poor enough across google and amazon devices).
It also looks very well,not as in your face like an echo show.
Bought for my missus,she loves it too

I'm hoping this screen won't flicker as much as the echo show does. The echo show has a camera, this doesn't. I love the nightlight on the lenovo essential one.

Basically getting this for my parents as a replacement for an old click radio.

Does the grey colour look nice? Or would all black be better?
