The video display no longer works! I just bought it in December. I'm not a happy costumer
Earlier reviews - same issues...
Works great - when it works.
Google doesn't support this device .
I never write reviews but felt obligated to leave one today. I bought the smart display over the Christmas holidays and it worked fine for about 2 weeks then shut itself off and won't turn back on. After doing some digging on the internet found out this is a pretty common problem so buyer beware. Contacted lenovo and they would honour the warranty but I had to mail it to them. Not paying for shipping when I can simply return it. Lucky for me it broke while I can still return it, you might not be so lucky.
we purchased this to use with the nest camera as a baby monitor.... AWSOME! i strongly recommend this set up.
Unsure where the screen issues that others are commenting about are coming from? I purchased 4 of these units, and all perform PERFECTLY! I do with the 10" was available in Canada (US-Only at the moment), as the larger screen would be amazing in the kitchen.
Search for recipes, follow cooking directions. Set timers. Set appointments, reminders, and control smart home devices such as bulbs and switches.
Have had all four running for a week, and have absolutely no issues with them.
Being able to "group" the displays, to have sound play in multiple areas of the house (also connects and groups with other Google Home products) is amazing!
Lenovo was the first out of the gate to run these displays. JBL and Google themsevles now also have display units, with more coming from LG and Sony - and likely more!
They are NOT a tablet. The are a Google Home with a screen. There is no app store, and you can not load applications to it. It runs a compact version of Android called "Android Things" - casting also works, ie: you can cast YouTube to it as a Chromecast device.
One star removed only because Netflix is currently unable to cast - in fairness, it can not yet cast to ANY "Android Things" screen device. Hopefully will be added in a future firmware update.
Bought this on Black Friday... Everything went well after setup and function well as intended....
About 2 weeks ago the screen would go black and nothing will wake up the screen....
I can still give command to google assistant and cast on the unit... Just the screen is black...
I will have to unplug the power and plug it back it to bring the screen back up... But it will go black screen randomly.... i've tried factory reset and setup the unit again, but will go black screen....
Was planing to exchange the unit, But its all sold out... (but Bestbuy was able to Honor the sale price, when the unit becomes available)
We love it, works great and features will probably get even better.
First smart display unit appeared to be working just fine but then we realized oh the touchscreen isn't working. Went through the troubleshooting tips, no go. Returned the unit and got another. This one is working flawlessly.
- Ambient mode is fantastic
- Having a visual for cooking is so convenient
- Playing music on Google Play music with lyrics is pretty neat
- screen is fairly decent
- speakers are pretty good, better than the google mini so just below the regular google home
All in all this unit is really great
Didn't work from the first second I plugged it in, screen was black could only see some minor light bleeding from the edges. Heard the Google Assistant kick in and start talking about setup, still no display. Did a quick google search("lenovo smart display no video") and discovered in the first few results a post from the Lenovo site talking about there is a mass of these things that have the same defect, screens do not function. BUYER BEWARE. Lenovo has yet to address it officially, and only offers to "repair" the unit at your cost.
The unit arrived within 3 days, the unit seems to be well built, has good sound for the size of the speaker but will need return it since the screen was DOA.
Can't review it without a display.
I received one as a present and it works great for playing music from Spotify, easily hooked up to our ecobee and awesome for looking up recipes. The only downside is that as of today it does not work with Google duo for phone calls.
We bought 2 of these - one works, one doesn't. The one that doesn't displays nothing on the screen. Googled that and found a LOT of people having this problem! The Lenovo support site says hold down the power button for a few seconds. That lowers my confidence level a huge amount - because there IS no power button (you unplug it to turn it off). Many people said they bought multiples and one of them wouldn't work - this appears to be an extremely common problem. Not impressed. Lenovo also wants me to pay shipping charges to send it to them...not likely. And of course, Best Buy won't let me return it until next week...and they have none left in stock so this is becoming a real hassle!
As someone whom has only dabbled in the smart phone assistant world, I am not sure what to expect. But, after a week of usage - I must say, this smart display has exceed all expectations.
- display: while it doesn't have the highest resolution, it is perfectly fine for my use case: watching some news, youtube while eating. following recipes.
- sound: I've read online that the speaker isn't great. I don't know what they are comparing it against. To me, the sound is pretty good! it lacks base (like most speakers that size), but it is clear, loud and can fill the room easily. It basically sounded like a premium bluetooth speaker. If you are big on hip hop with a ton of base then this won't really work.
- mic: gotta say, it picks up your voice command VERY EASILY. I can instruct the display to do things from the second floor even. and I didn't even need to raise my voice. Though occasionally when you are behind it, I find it doesn't pick up as well. but overall, it works 95% of the time.
- Google home: this basically works like most other google homes with the benefit of screen. which means you can cast things to the display. HOWEVER, it does not yet display Netflix which is a huge bummer.
Overall, I am very happy with it. It is definitely a great kitchen gadget and the ability to use voice while you are preparing for breakfast/cleaning up is AWESOME
