I returned mine. Does not handle well on hard wood floors. Accelerates too quickly, awkward controls. When it stops it wobbles around so it loses directionality. It is at best adequate to control on carpets. Head falls off at slightest bump. All sounds (other than motors moving) come from the controller ( your phone) and not the toy. Holographic messaging is cute but not worth it no actual projection or camera system just uses the camera on your phone to overlay a message. Cute but not worth it. Please note this is a comment on the toy and not the seller. I did not buy from this seller.

I bought mine from the Apple store.

I love my BB-8 SO much. The controls are really wobbly (But BB-8 is round, so this is okay!), and the sound all comes from your phone instead of the droid (although I don't know how a waterproof droid would have sound capabilities anyway, so I guess that makes sense.)

Very cute and fun to play with, as well as durable. My cat has attacked it a few times, and it's still going strong.

I do wish there was a way to give it more voice commands, as the interface is a bit limiting. Also, the box says BB-8 learns as it spends time with you, but so far, in my experience, BB-8 mostly just acts adorable and bumps into stuff (and amuses the cat). Maybe this is something that will be further developed? The fact that it is controlled by a phone app is really appealing to me, since it suggests upgrades and new things (I hope).

I would definitely recommend buying one of these. It's really fun.

This little droid is the one I was looking for. Small problem with delivery but eLightning made it right and BB-8 got to my door on time as promised in the end. Very pleased with this purchase.

I love this BB8 droid. First of all, let me state that I wasn't really sure at first if it was going to be worth the money or not. As a huge Star Wars fan, I love the droid.

Cons:
I originally thought that the sound, his beeping, came from the droid toy itself. It doesn't. Which I was a little disappointed with. It comes from the app\speaker from your smartphone or IPAD iPhone.
It is difficult to control at first, it is a "joystick" version to control him from your device.
Given that he is just a device, when you voice a command to him, you sometimes have to repeat yourself. A lot like Siri, the louder and more clear you speak, the better he understands.
His head does fly off his body if he hits an object too hard.

Given all all the cons, he does have pros. It is the ultimate Star Wars fan gift. Once you get the hang of the controls, he works great. He's adorable and the sounds from the app are good. I was surprised with how fast he can go, and the app is well laid out and very well done. My cat is amused and some what scared of him which lets face it, is entertainment in itself.

All and all, I am happy with the droid. It is entertainment as he was created for. Plus it's Star Wars, which is awesome anyways. Is he worth $200? Not for me personally. Will I return him? Not at all. I will continue to set up road blocks for him to go around and play with my cat.

I enjoy having him run around my room on his own as I do my work on my laptop. (I wish i didn't have carpet because he runs slower then he should) I also enjoy having my nephew join in on the fun and talk to it while chasing it around. Cute little toy!

BB8 has all the functions I tried on my friend's sphero with the added cuteness of the character. Having a face gives all the sphero functions context resulting in an hilarious and cute little droid running around.

I bought this for my son for his 8th birthday and he loves it! BB-8 rolls around our house easily. He watches The Force Awakens with us and reacts to the movie. Would highly recommend.
