Engadget Review

The JBL Link View is the Google Smart Display with the best audio quality, at least for now. With two front-facing 10 watt speakers and a rear passive radiator, the Link View goes especially well with bass-heavy tracks. Yet, the display and design pales in comparison to the Lenovo Smart Display. If audio is your priority, then the Link View is a great choice. If not, then either go for the Lenovo or wait for something else down the line.
