Picked one up last time they were on sale for $40 USD. For the price, it really can't be beat. While it doesn't sound quite as good as the standard Google Home, I'm not going to complain because I have a few extra bucks in my pocket!

Picked it up also when it was on sale for $40 overall great speaker decent sound and the 5 hour built in battery makes it easy to take the speaker out to the patio

Thanks everyone for feedback. I think I am going to pick up 2. Seems like a great deal for $25.

Very tempted to pick up another one (bought 2 last time when it was $35USD).

In the meanwhile, I have noticed an issue with both unit that when the volume is set to low (<30%), musics seems to get chopped off like the speaker is turning on&off. Feels like power saving to me that when some music playing is below certain threshold and it will turn off the speaker to save power.
It gets a bit annoying when I use it to play sleeping sounds (raining) and it is just turning on & off all the time.
Anything above >30% in volume sounds fine and better than my google mini.

How does it compare to the one selling for $19.99?
https://www.bestbuy.com/site/insignia-v ... Id=5865801

The one for $19.99 is about 2/3 the size of the one mentioned here and is wired/always connected to the power (no built-in rechargeable battery). I would actually recommend the one for $20 more as how often will you be moving around this "alarm clock"?

I have bought 10 of the smaller speaker when it was on sale for $25, now it's even cheaper at $20. They are really good, better than the mini for sure but the far reaching mics are better on the full version home. Still, you could end up buying about 7 of these for the same price as a Google Home. I'd order them again but they are a tough sell when no one has heard of them.

Thanks OP - I had a devil of a time placing an order - Best Buy's web portal is adamant it wants a US billing address and since my credit card and Pay Pal both have Canadian addresses - I had to call in to Best Buy's call centre to place a manual order over the phone.
I am going to be in the US for a week starting Saturday so it's perfect timing - I had it shipped to the closest Best Buy store to where I will be staying.

Never had any issues using the BestBuy Houston billing address they mention in the FAQs when using an non-US credit card

Did you try this.

Use this exact billing address in place of your non-U.S. billing address during checkout:

Should technically work.
