    HomePod has an awesome sound quality providing 360? sound. It's unfortunate that it still lacks the intuitiveness compared to its competitors to be a more valuable virtual/contextual assistant.

    Apple's homepod is an awesome speaker and having Siri is great. It works great with the Apple TV and you can even control the tv by voice when connected. It does lack with integration with anything not HomeKit enabled. But I do believe that will change when Apple opens it up to everyone else on a software level vs the current hardware. Make that change and this might just be the best smart speaker.

    Great sound but wish it was more compatible with more devices for the smart app HomeKit. Recommend only for speaker use but not for smart devices.

    First generation product with great sound. Siri and other software limitations bring it down a notch, though

    I'm a Apple fanatic and bought this as I normally would as a new Apple product. It's on ok product but does have it limitations compared to its competitors.

    This speaker sounds phenomenal for it's size! Siri is the only drawback, sine it's not as far along as it's on the iPad/iPhone/Mac.

    Excellent sound for a speaker this size, but like most YouTube and online reviews, it's lacking badly in the smart aspect of the speaker. Also locked down entirely to the Apple ecosystem and for $350, it doesn't sound that great with all the limitations!

    The HomePod sounds absolutely incredible. Setup is a breeze, and it integrates into the Apple ecosystem seamlessly. My only lament is the lack of a AUX port.

    the HomePod is a very well made speaker. Clear sound, responds well to voice....only complaint is for Apple due to the lack of integrations with internet and apps. Great for music and smart device control.

    I love the Apple HomePod, great integration with Apple Music, but my main issue with the speaker is not being able to put a song or music as an alarm. You would think that spending so much on a speaker and having access to millions of songs wouldn't have that issue, but hopefully Apple fixes that with the next update. That is one thing that I loved about Alexa, music to wake me up, not an abrupt alarm noise.

    The sound quality is outstanding when you're listening to music. Given the price, I would expect a smart speaker to be smarter. Siri needs lots of work and is worse somehow on the HomePod than on iPhone or iPad.

    Incredible sound, flawed "smart" features

    If you are invested in the Apple ecosystem of computers, mobile devices, home kit smart accessories, and home entertainment devices like Apple TV, then you can not go wrong with this smart speaker as you will know the capabilities as well as limitations of Siri. The sound quality and volume that comes out of this small speaker is seriously impressive. However if you intend on using anything other than an iOS device, look elsewhere and don't waste your time because this is not made for Android devices and you can not connect anything via USB or AUX port because there are none.

    I had a chance to get my hands on this device as a demo. It is lacking what Google and Amazon have been doing great for years. Apple comes out of the gate with older technology with less support for triple the cost.

    Nice speaker with great sound. It only supports Apple music, which is ridiculous considering you are paying $350. Competitors support Spotify, Pandora, Google music & even Apple music. I would've given this 5 stars if it supported more than Apple music.
