I got no pick-up notification or cancellation e-mail from Lowes.

I've tried ordering from a million different places, but all the orders have been cancelled. I put in one last order with both Home Depot and The Source.

I'm just trying to ditch my Amazon Alexa devices, as those things are more useless than a box of hair.

Have a feeling my Best Buy order will be cancelled shortly. Been about four day now and it hasn’t moved but the item still shows available for back order.

Ordered my first GH. For those who are still on the fence and wondering whether to get one, this is my experience:

It's sort of like having a woman in the house that, generally, does what you ask. Although you may have to repeat yourself or clarify what you mean. She will also almost always want to get the last word in. Occasionally you may get that "How did you get that from what I asked?!?" moment, particularly if you're using two different languages (but in the same sentence). There's also a teenager side to GH (or some women will say it's like a guy in that aspect) and if you string too many instructions together it may get confused and some or all of them will not be done.

If you happen to wear a grind guard to bed you may have to convince GH that you do not have a lisp, you really do want to hear The Schwings Band.

How long did it take for yours to arrive? It said it was shipped yesterday for me. But can't track it still.

Home Depot said shipped on the 16th, but UPS didn’t actually pick it up till last night, and it got here this morning. I’m in the GTA btw.

If you have split 5GHz channels, one for narrow band another for wider band, or whatever, one GH device might be connecting on a different band which could give the "appearance" of a worse connection. For me, I had some on the 20MHz band and another on a 80 MHz hand. It makes a difference when it comes to distance and interference.
My 5GHz AP is broadcasting an 80 MHz channel, that's all, no splitting.

The home has a staggeringly poorer connection to both my many v1 minis, and the v2 mini, and my chromecasts, it's night and day.

Checking online I'm seeing similar issues with no resolution, seems like Google just farted on the the design for WIFI on this thing (among other things), which considering how huge it is, makes no sense, it's not like they were having trouble fitting an antenna.

I was hoping it was a dud unit, looks like it's a design defect. Tempted to put it in the box and send it back, not sure.

Same here, although the fact that BB is still taking orders is a good thing. It'd be a bit nutty to keep selling the things if there isn't a plan to get the product. Whether it's a good plan or not I guess we'll see.

Looks like there's stock at Staples in the Cambridge/Kitchener/Guelph area if you can do instore/curb pickup:

Did a instore pickup at Homedepot but they had 0 stock. I was offered google nest hub 7inch for the same price.

Was able to pick one up from Staples today. Seamless process as I ordered at midnight and was ready for pickup early this morning. Curb side pickup was also a breeze.

Thanks OP for posting this deal!

I think this was bad timing with curbside pickup and stores reopening. People did in-store pickup then the stores re-opened and people went in and bought them before they could fulfill the pickup orders.

Ordered mine from Costco on May 15th. Arrived today. Put in the garage to replace the Home Mini I had in there for better sound.
