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

Looks like a really good deal compared to the 7" Google Nest Hub but I don't think this JBL or the Lenovo Smart Display's ever got Netflix. Reviews claim that this little JBL sounds OK for music but I've never found any of these little guys worth listening to especially since I prefer bass heavy music. Still thinking of returning my Hub and grabbing this JBL.

should not be more than $50 at this time. I have one. tends to loose wi-fi connection occasionally (even when google/nest hub stay connected), but otherwise it is good. Good sound and everything. No matter how good it is, the price can not be more than $50 now since the price of google hub is now reduced significantly. This price was good/excellent 1-2 years back. Btw, I would suggest not to buy lenovo display, it has significant wi-fi issue (at least with mine), lost connection frequently even it is next to my router.

The size of the screen is bigger. It also has a built in camera and better sound than the Lenovo 10 inch.

I've had this for a while now and I also have a Nest Hub. I'll echo the others that say it loses connection occasionally, but it never drops when I'm actively using it like watching YouTube TV or listening to music. I'll walk into the kitchen and the screen will say it's disconnected but it reconnects after a reboot. This maybe happens once every couple months. The sound however is a massive, massive upgrade from the Nest Hub. This is going to sound a little snobby but to me, the Nest Hub is pretty lousy for listening to music - it's a picture frame with an assistant but music and audio sound pretty bad on it. If you're going to use it for audio it is worth the extra $30-40 for this over the Nest Hub.

Yes, I also use it in the kitchen. But mine does not always reconnect after the reboot. So I have to wait until it decides itself to reconnect to wif-fi. There is no other way (to turn on wi-fi) to force reconnect. Yes, sound is very good but I do not need a massive sound in my kitchen. Plus I have massive dedicated sound-systems in the house (and multiple great speakers). The point is while the product is good, the price is not....specially in 2021.

I have now had this for a month. I really like it so far. Sound is great on em. The display is ok, the plus feature I like is the physical camera shutter.

How do you get to watch YouTube TV on this JBL?

Interestingly, I never used the camera function so far (did not feel the need) !!! If someone would like to buy it just as a speaker (an expensive speaker in 2021 !!), that is ok.
