I have four of the larger ones from the last thread, and two of the portable ones from about three months ago that all work fine. I use the four large ones linked together at work so anybody can switch songs from their phones. Works great, listening to them now. Not the best sound ever, but for the price with Wi-Fi I think they are a great deal.

Bonus feature of these linkplay speakers is that they also function as Wi-Fi repeaters.

bought 5 returned 5 of big ones. Absolute pos. quality was 1/10 brand new it felt like used and deformed. I bought decent cheap bt speakers before but this was absolute trash. stay away if you have any appreciation of quality products. This is by far worst thing I've ever used/ tried

I did not buy this model, but the previous deal. I'm not sure what people are expecting for $20 or less but it seems to me they're expecting too much.

In any case, I have one speaker in multiple rooms and they playback in sync. I find the sound quality to be very good. I wish they were a slight bit louder but for the size (and price) that might be expecting too much.

I mostly use their app. It's OK. I've also connected - bluetooth or included wire jack - to my parent speaker and that streams in sync to the other speakers as well.

If his model is similar to the previous then the value is VG+ imho.

I bought the vibe one's from last deal and these are clearly used ones sold as new. There are signs of use all over the place on all the 5 units I received. While the deal itself is worth at $10 per unit, it's very disappointing that staples don't mark these as used. If you have any coupons that can bring the price down to $10 range, it clearly justifies the mediocre sound and the functionalities it offer . As much as it sounds unreasonable to expect more out of $10 unit , the cons really are

1) weak sound
2) heavy lag while watching videos
3) annoying auto shutdown
4) long boot time
5) spotty Wi-Fi connection (sporadic issue)

To schedule what? These are only speakers. There is no mic, no speaking to them. This is probably one of the reason why they were discounted. Maybe?

I can ask via app to say start morning meditation at 4:30 for 30 minutes. And then put another one at 5:00am to push this loudly to wake up everyone. else.
