Quote from GeoffreyK24 :
I have owned the JBL Link View, the JBL Link 300 (speaker), the Lenovo 8" Smart Display, Google Home, and Google Nest Hub.
Out of all of the Google Assistant displays, the JBL has the best sound quality, hands down. With the small subwoofer, it generates more bass than any other Google smart display.
If you want the display more for the digital photo aspect first and the sound second, I recommend the Google Nest Hub. Google did an amazing job with their adaptive displays and they easily beat out the glossy, computer screen look of the Lenovo and JBL displays. They can also be found for around half this price (on sale).
The Lenovo is still noteworthy and isn't bad at all. The speaker may even be better than the Google Nest Hub.
All of that being said, if you are only looking for a Google Assistant device and a good sounding speaker, the JBL Link 300 is an awesome option. It brings a significant amount of bass and produces clean sound even at high volumes. I have not noticed any difference in it's Google Assistant experience in comparison to any of my other Google branded Google Assistant devices. You can find them open-box or refurb on eBay for probably half this price and get two for what you would pay for one of these JBL displays. Two Link 300s would give you a formidable sounding speaker setup.
It is really all personal preference amongst these selections for Google Assistant devices. What you are looking for and how you listen to your media content can help dictate if you need/want a device with a screen or if you could save money on just a smart speaker
Repped for awesome post. How would you compare microphone sensitivity (especially with music playing) between your different devices? Are the non-Google brands just as good? I have to shout if music is playing for my Insignia Google speaker to hear me. Microphone is noticeably worse than my Google branded ones.

How do you get to watch YouTube TV on this JBL?
Don't know about TV, but it has played YouTube movies and I can cast HULU from my phone.

Does this run the same native software as nest screens? I'm concerned that 3rd party ones seem slow, laggy, and aren't updated to new features in the past with google home stuff.

Google version of this (with screen) was sold $45 or LESS many times in the past (and during thanksgiving sale). So the difference could be $14 "now", but it is not the real difference in price that people paid.
I mentioned in a previous comment that I don't think the regular Nest Hub is a comparable product because the audio quality is very bad. I'm more likely to pit this against the Nest Hub Max for that reason.

Quote from mateohoffman :
I bought this for Christmas and I'm disappointed as it doesn't seem to always pick up my voice correctly I Google home hub does a much better job in my opinion maybe the sound is a bit better on this but sometimes the functionality is completely broken I ask it to do something and it says it's doing it but then it just shows the next photo and my photo slide.
I bought this back in January for $109 from Best Buy. I already owned a Google Home (classic is what I'll call it) that I use to listen to music and I needed a new clock. So I figured, why not get both in one product! Later on I invested in Hue lighting and I use it to control that as well.

The sound is great. It doesn't surprise me that JBL was able to pull it off but I'm really commenting to echo your comments:

1. Compared to the old Google Home I have this thing doesn't always hear me. Sometimes I end up repeating myself a couple of times, especially if music is playing. My voice is extremely deep, I don't know if that has anything to do with it but it occurs quite a bit. It just seems the original home can hear "through" the noise that it's making and know that I'm talking to it. I also had this same problem with the Insignia Google Home device.

2. I have that bug you mentioned where I expect it to start doing something and it just doesn't do it. It doesn't happen enough that I don't use the thing. It just happens enough for me to notice. However, I don't know if it's the Youtube or Spotify apps that are responsible or the device.

3. To echo someone else, my JBL also loses connection a lot. There's nothing I can other than to wait for it to figure out how to reconnect. It's right next to the router in my office so since I'm usually working when it happens I can say that nothing else loses connection. This thing might do it 4 or 5 times a day.

But otherwise it's a great speaker. I remember when it was about $300 a few years back.

I guess so, maybe you could let them work together via Google Assistant
