I wanted a smart speaker that could control my smart devices, was not too big and had great sound. The 808 XL-V seemed to fit all my needs (and has Alexa), so I decided to give it a shot.

Getting the speaker set up was a breeze. I just needed to download the free 808 app, plug in the speaker, then follow the step by step instructions from the app to connect the speaker to my home wifi. Once it was added to my home network, the speaker was ready to use. I checked my Alexa app, and the 808 XL-V automatically showed up as one of my registered devices.

The speaker looks and sounds great, and the sound fills the room I have it in. The 808 app is nice as it links your stored music so you can start playing your music from within the app instead of opening a new app, plus you have access to other music services like iheart radio and Napster in the 808 app.

The big plus is it works seamlessly as an Alexa device. I can lock my front door, turn on/off lights, and even control my Ecobee thermostat without needing to get up from my desk or picking up my phone. It also accesses my music stored on the Amazon Cloud.

Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase.

This speaker has blown me away. Not only is the sound that it produces rich and powerful, but the Alexa Voice command is beyond impressive. From first opening the speaker, I haven't experienced a single problem. Set up was very swift and easy. I have it set up in my bedroom and use it constantly. It can set alarms, answer questions, tell you the weather and give you the news. One of my favorite things to do is to just ask Alexa to tell me a joke. The Amazon music library is massive and it also pairs well with apps on my phones such as YouTube and Spotify. It really is a good speaker, I couldn't recommend this enough.

Sounds amazing! Setup was not quite as easy as should be but once it was set-up it fully integrated with my Amazon account. It's a really good value and if you use a smart speaker to play music like I do, you should buy this product... Plus it has an auxiliary port to connect mp3 players and CD players to it. The app is also great and you can really create a whole home audio system with this as your smart alexa-based centerpiece.

Could not get it to connect to WiFi. Called their customer service # and was on hold for over 45 mins.
Not recommended, unless your looking for an exercise in patience.

I bought this for my 90 year old cousin hoping it would help him to not get too lonely or bored this winter. The miracle is he likes it and uses it to ask questions.

Returned this speaker. Even though the sound was great, it would not do all the things Amazon speakers do. The most important feature I wanted was the ability for the speaker to place phone calls. Being a third-party brand, this speaker could not do that.

It was difficult to set up, even for my friend who is savy with electronics. Once we got it up and running it was very slow to bring up new songs or on going songs and delayed to respond when you say "Alexa". Don't think it's my connection, I have Verizon and all my other products run quickly and smoothly.

It was a gift to my wife. She likes it. Nothing else matters. I’ve asked it about weather a couple times
