Google Nexus Q

PC Magazine
6 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Google's Nexus Q is a good-looking media hub, but its meager app selection and reliance on Android devices don't come close to justifying its high price.
  • Pros: Attractively designed. Built-in amp. Integrates well with Android Music and YouTube apps. NFC app link is handy (assuming your Android device supports NFC).
  • Cons: Expensive. Requires an Android smartphone or tablet to work. Can't play video stored on your Android device. No Netflix or Hulu Plus. No streaming audio apps.

LAPTOP Magazine
12 July 2012
  • Summary: It's often a form of praise to say that a device does one thing and does it well. But when a device purports to bring the wonders of the Internet to your home, and then limits itself to less content than devices that cost a third as much, that's a fail.

Google Nexus Q im Test: futuristischer Media-Streamer mit Potenzial, aber nicht viel mehr

CNET
10 July 2012
  • Summary: Mit dem Nexus Q wagt Google den nächsten Angriff auf die Wohnzimmer und Heimkinos dieser Welt. Und zwar mit Stil: Auf dem Fernseh-Schrank sieht der Nexus Q vielmehr wie ein aus Diablo 3 entsprungener Gegenstand aus – und weniger nach Heimkino-Hardware.

  • Cons: sehr teuer, keine Streaming-Möglichkeiten von Nicht-Google-Services, kein Streaming von PC oder DLNA-Server möglich, keine eigene Fernbedienung oder Oberfläche, daher Android-Device zum Steuern erforderlich
