In case anybody's thinking about pulling the trigger on this, you should know there's a long-standing bug that causes the Home Max to frequently drop its WiFi connection. You can search for "Google Home Max keeps dropping wifi" and find a huge thread dating back a couple years, if you want to verify. Google knows about the problem, but hasn't done anything to solve it, and it's a lot more annoying than you might think it'd be.

Anyway, there's an easy solution that works for several people, including me: if your access point supports a 5GHz band, just put the Home Max on it, with no other devices.

If your AP doesn't support 5GHz, I'd seriously think twice about purchasing this, even at this discount. It'll drive you absolutely nuts.
Sound is fantastic on this. Built in assistant is a bonus, but great to have in the family room. Frozen II soundtrack never sounded so good!
Heads-up Google Home Max is discontinued by Google. That means no firmware updates but existing services are promised by 'Google' to work.
Google doesn't keep up their promise in most cases.

Got this for $160 in December, the speaker quality is pretty good. Considerably better than those tiny Google home/nest mini's. Though I kinda wish it has a built-in battery so I could move it around.

I'm tempted to buy….hmmmm. As others said, a battery would make this a killer device. Having to be plugged in is tricky

How does it compare to the main Google home? That sold for $30 a few years back ($129 retail)

How is sound compared to Ikea Symfonisk Sonos? I was waiting around for this deal but since it was so long since it last went down I ended up getting a pair of Symfonisk and they sound great.

These are "mesh" speakers. They're essentially a direct competitor to Sonos as they generally have the exact same functionality. The one thing Sonos has on this (and its a big one) is the ability to string them together for home theater duties.

From what I heard, Google was working on this as well, although I havent' seen any updates. This speaker in a surround sound system would blow Sonos out of the water in terms of overall value (I have both, sonos sounds find, but at 2-3 times the cost).
