If anyone was looking to pull the trigger, now would be the time.
Given that the the Home Mini generally retails for only slightly less, this is a great deal.
I have every product in the Google Home Family: This one, the Mini, the Max and the Hub.
This one (the original Home) is the solid, reliable mid-ranger. It picks up sound very well and has impressive sound quality. It’s not an audiophile device, but it’s well suited for music.
