Most helpful customer reviews141 of 143 people found the following review helpful.Better than your ordinary TV!By CMackThis TV is great! There are some mixed reviews out on the internet about this TV but the realityis, most TVs can not do what this TV can. There are some limitations to what the TV can do andsome down side to the actual specifications of the TV but the positives out way the negatives bya lot. I will start with the negatives:The first major negative for me is that the TV is only 60 Hz. While this is lower than most TVsout there this size, you can hardly notice a difference. The second major negative is that the TVsprocessor is also a little weak and causes the TV to lag a little when loading an application.Because of the slower processor speed the TV is not very good for playing video games onlinebut can still work fine for games in regular story mode (Offline). The third major negative aboutthis TV is the fact that some websites block the TV from gaining access to their site. Most of thewebsites that do this are working on special deals or have already made deals with Sony orGoogle and only a few websites actually block the TV. The fourth negative for me was that factthat this TV uses an Audio Optical Cable out in order to hook up surround sound which meant Ineeded to buy a new receiver because my old one did not have an Audio Optical Cable IN.Now for the positive features of this product: The first major positive feature of this TV is thefact that it self updates, meaning every so often new software is available that makes it better oreasier to use. As of right now each Google TV product should be running Android Honeycomb3.1 or higher. With The newest software update you have full access to Apps, Widgets, andevery feature Android tablets are capable of doing (Except a touch screen) all on your largescreen TV. The second major positive feature is Internet access on its own or at the same timeyoure watching TV! There are not many other TVs on the market that have a full Internetbrowser! The third major positive feature is instant movie/TV show rentals/streaming on yourTV. No longer do you need to watch Netflix, Amazon, or HBOGO movies (or any otherstreaming service) on your laptop/desktop or third party device like a PS3, you can just watch iton your TV. The fourth is HD upscale; this TV can upscale a picture or movie that is beingdisplayed in a lower resolution to 1080, which is nice if you have a bunch of standard definitionDVDs at home that you like to watch. Another cool feature that I have not tested out myself buthave heard about is a TV web cam (If anyone has tried this please leave a comment bellowletting me know how it works.)Some of the other features about this TV worth mentioning are a universal remote that isfunctional and easy to use. Note: the mouse on the remote isnt the best but its not the primarysource of maneuvering around on this product. The TV also has multiple USB ports, remotestreaming from your phone or computer and an application that turns your smart phone into aremote control! One of the coolest features I like about the TV is Google itself. I use a lot of thefeatures Google offers online like, Google Drive, the calendar, and chat (have not tried video),along with Facebook/Google+ and other websites that I can access right on the TV. This is aGreat TV and is worth checking out for yourself!
*If you think you want to try the Google TV out but dont want to pay all the money for a newTV you might want to check out the Sony NSZ-GT1 Wi-Fi-Enabled 1080p Blu-ray Disc PlayerFeaturing Google TV! Its a blu-ray and all of the features of the TV in a nice looking box thatcost around $200.00. I Also have one of these hooked up to a Samsung plasma in my living roomand it rocks! Google TV is now available on LGs new LED TV. LG offers a updated processorand faster refresh rate, making it a much faster, thinner TV worth looking at!42 of 44 people found the following review helpful.Excellent device, with a few flaws...By johnnycabI wanted a TV for gaming and video-on-demand (particularly Amazon). I havent had cable TVin years and get all my media from the internet, so the idea of having a non-internet-connectedTV seemed ludicrous.When I began researching TVs I was astonished to find there are basically no televisions thathave WiFi and full internet connectivity. And even the XBox 360 Im buying is crippled byMicrosoft so that web browsing is difficult or impossible.I really like the form-factor of the remote. I considered the Logitech GoogleTV offering but theirmini-keyboard approach seemed inferior compared to Sonys game-controller-style remote. Mymajor problem at the moment is the optical trackpad / thumbpad DOES NOT WORK! When Iclick it the cursor appears, and occasionally it will respond and move across the screen, but 9times out of 10 it is completely unresponsive. All the other keys work flawlessly so it doesntseem to be a signal problem. Perhaps the remote is defective, but I sure dont want to return thisTV just to get a functioning remote. Current workaround is plugging in a wireless USB mousewhich works perfectly but is inconvenient.Setup was easy; however, the mounting brackets on the TV did not slide fully onto the stand,preventing me from putting in the mounting screws. No amount of force/jiggling would allow itto slide fully on, but its on well enough to stay.Documentation is sparse and I had to search the web to figure out how to add/delete bookmarksand the like. Still if you can get around an Android phone you should have no problem with thisTV; it is essentially an Android device with a very large screen and a custom UI.I would say if you have a decent TV already, go with the Logitech box (or the Sony one if youhappen to want a BluRay player). But if youre upgrading to a new screen and are happy with the40" (or 46") screen size this unit is a good way to go. Part of the reason I didnt want a separatebox is that I expect Android/GoogleTV will be built into most televisions within a couple ofyears...if consumers get to choose between a dumb standalone box or a WiFi-connected fullyinternet-ready device, which do you think theyll pick?102 of 120 people found the following review helpful.Input lag, read update at bottom (Will not work with PS3, XBOX360, Wii)By D. MaxonI spent a long time shopping for a new TV and turned down a bunch because I wanted something
cheaper. Once I saw everything Google TV had to offer, I ended up deciding to spend more.Picture: I have seen some complaints about the picture quality but have not had the same feelingsmyself. I am in love with audio and good sound, an audiophile, but not a big "Nice picture"kinda guy. That being said the picture quality seems awesome. Watching Planet Earth in 1080was amazing and Disney animated movies (Like Toy Story, Shrek) look fantastic. My daughteris mesmerized with the picture on these movies. As I am sure a lot of you are aware of, thepicture quality of a Blu-ray depends a lot on the movie itself so there are some movies (LikeNapoleon Dynamite) that do not look the best and leave you feeling ripped off if you paid toomuch. I like to use Toy Story 2 as a good test of picture quality because it is not made to havethat "fuzzy" theater look and is very colorful. Toy Story 2 looks AMAZING! The one complaintthat I think has a little merit is the depth of the blacks in films. But it is such a minor problemthat I have to point it out to people to make them notice. Maybe "problem" wouldnt even be theright word, it just could be better. Its not like this TV is made with an AMOLED screen, theblacks are back-lit and therefore not perfectly dark.Hardware: The TV itself seems built pretty well. Along with the HDMI jacks there is an opticalaudio out that makes me very happy. Unlike my last Sony TV, this set turns the built in speakersoff when external audio is connected. On top of that the software allows you to disable the TVsound altogether (When you press volume on the TV it says its disabled) and that is perfect forme because I have a great home theater setup and feel the TV speakers are useless (For me, anamateur audiophile) The included stand on the TV could be better, but its nice and sturdy andgets the job done.Software and Google TV: This was the strong point and weak point for me. First of all havingGoogle TV built in is a very useful and impressive feature. The other options for Google TVrequire external devices that just cant do what a built in version can. My wife and I love beingable to access our TV applications and channel line-up and still have the show we were watchingin the corner. The applications allow you to watch Netflix and more and includes GoogleChrome for web browsing. The web browsing is just about as good and fast as my home PC. Thepeople that complained about the speed must have been using wireless. Since I stream a lot ofmovies it is important for me to be able to connect my Ethernet cable right to the TV. The builtin processor (1.6 GHz Atom) seems to be able to handle web browsing without breaking a sweat.The downside for the Google TV is the lack of an Android market (For those of you that dontknow, Google TV runs on Android). It seems there is so much more that this TV is capable ofthat it doesnt do. For this reason and this reason alone I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars.Google makes the promise that the Android market will be available for this TV this year (2011)and if it was any company other than Google, I would have waited. But Google is usually prettygood about following through with their plans so I took the leap and purchased this TV evenwith this problem. Once they open the Android market I foresee a lot of possibilities opening up.Dont let me down Google!***Update6.13***I dont play much video games and dont own any consoles but found that after connecting my
computer to the TV there was an input lag (Also a lag with Wii, PS3, XBOX360, Etc). I wantedto play one of my first person shooters on the TV instead of my monitor. I found there wasenough of an input lag to get in the way. I contacted Sony about this and got this response:Spencer_ > Users may experience a slight lag or delay in response time when connecting theInternet TV device to a game console.Spencer_ > This is a natural result of the advanced processing circuitry in the Internet TV device.Spencer_ > This is normal operation.Advanced processing makes my TV have a lag? More like poor design. They could have at leastapologized and said they were working to fix it. This TV has been great otherwise, but this is ajoke and their poor response, unwillingness to try to fix it, and lack of information about theinput lag before buying this TV makes them go from 4 stars to 1.Shame on Sony.See all 132 customer reviews...http://astore.amazon.com/naff01-20 | Shopping Cart Browse by CategoryHousehold FansPatio, Lawn & GardenTelevision & VideoHome Entertainment FurnitureVacuums & Floor CaresofaTV LED sony Similar ItemsDVI Gear HDMI Cable 2M 6 feet$4.05
