Sony NSZ-GT1 (Google TV)

CNET
11 December 2010
  • Summary: 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.
  • Cons: 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 Netflix interface; limited app selection at launch; expensive compared with other Wi-Fi Blu-ray players; doesn't work with older, non-HD TVs.

Sony Internet TV Blu-ray Disc Player (NSZ-GT1)

PC Magazine
12 August 2010
  • Conclusion: The Sony Internet TV Blu-ray Disc Player may lack the Logitech Revue's Harmony remote functionality, but its Blu-ray drive makes it a better value if you want to get into the Google TV game.
  • Pros: Excellent value. Solid Blu-ray video quality for a convergence product. Google TV interface peruses Web content, TV listings, and apps with Google search. Streams audio, video, photos from PCs wirelessly.
  • Cons: Limited connectivity (only HDMI and Optical outputs). Only DISH Network DVR content shows up in searches. Cannot assign multiple user accounts to protect browsing, content-viewing history.
