Sony NSZ-GT1 (Google TV)

 

Blu-ray player with built-in Google TV; revolutionary Google TV software enables potential access to virtually all online media, with a powerful interface; user interface overlays TV content from cable/satellite box; can control TV, AV receiver, and...

Frustrating controller handles neither Google TV or Blu-ray well; major content providers like Hulu, CBS, and ABC are currently blocking Google TV; user interface geared toward power users; Google's "universal" search doesn't search Netflix; antiquated...

The Sony NSZ-GT1 combines Google TV and Blu-ray in a single box, but Sony's frustrating controller, the high price, and Google TV's content issues make it a tough sell.

Sony NSZ-GT1 Google TV Blu-ray Disc Player Review

 

The Sony NSZ-GT1 sounds more like a Japanese sports car than an Internet TV Blu-ray Player. I mean, are we reviewing the hardware? Yes. Are we reviewing GoogleTV? Yes. Are we reviewing Sony? Yes.

1. Android Honeycomb and Market access

1. Some websites are blocked for Google TV

"It kinda works, I have no buyer's remorse."

 

Learned more about it after I bought it. However initial setup is painless, it checks for and installs the update. I recommend using the ethernet port over the wifi connection.

Ties everything together - almost. Would recommend it to anyone who does not have internet connectivity through their bluray or tv. Everybody seems to be selling it for 199. My kids like it.

Unclear if this will continue to be developed. Marketplace has been added but Flash is reporting this device as unsupported.

HOOOAHHHH! Totally AWESOME! Best thing i ever bought.

 

PERFECT. Simply perfect. i'm sure the price will drop come christmas time, but by then, a newer and faster model will be available. for now, every home entertainment center should have one. i've stopped buying dvds and just switch on my google box....

Got an awesome deal for $169 at Best Buy. It was an open box, who cares - so the box was taped up. Took less than 5 minutes to set up. Perfect for surfing - checking email - NETFLIX is just perfect. Imagine 100 episodes of Law n Order. And to search

I only wish Sony backlit the remote. Other than that, its totally off the hook. guys, remember this is not a computer. its a device that makes you access TV shows, movies, email, endless surfing. So who cares about uploading or downloading. use a lap

Great addition to media entertainment

 

This is a great addition for the kitchen, bedroom or media room. If you already have a Blu-Ray player then purchase the Logitech Revue.

Able to watch U-Verse and able to stream netflix, amazon, etc web browse and soon more this fall when android 3.1 Honeycomb is realeased

This is slanted to all media outlets like CNET and others who have not updated this product's info since October 2010. It's late July 2011 and tech capabilities have changed since then. Get with it

Device compatibility sux,only 4 gigs,no antivirus avail

 

Updated on Jul 13, 2011

Has Neat Apps for media streaming and music, comes in very handy when your computer is down if your using it just to surf the net & email and simple stuff like that. Of course excellent for watching movies

Its a pretty pricey gadget for the limited capabilities it has as for downloading & saving files and its compatibility w/ other electronic devices (ex: av receivers, non HDMI TV's, home theatre systems etc) sucks. I'd do some research B4 buying it

Broken promises from Google.

 

I replaced it with McTivia by Awind. I now can mirror 8 computers on one HDTV.

Easy setup

Not enough apps. Google promises apps but hasn't delivered in a year. You have to pay extra to integrate it with Dish Network. Freezes at times. The processor speed is too slow. Does not support HULU or common websites like NBC
