Summary: I already had a Roku but saw that NeoTV had Youtube, so I bought it to try it out. I am taking it back today. It has only a few channels as opposed to the Roku, very few children's options. The quality was nice but honestly, the Roku is a better choice all the way.
Summary: I am really happy with this product. It's like having an additional android connected to my TV. I do so many great things with my Nexus phone & tablet but now I can also do this on the TV! :-D I really like the remote but it's really cool to control this with my Nexus. I can install a file explorer and play content on my desktop PC which is a huge plus for me. I love being able to use my DVR camera software and am able to side load APKs like Google+.
Excerpt: A few weeks ago I purchased the Roku 3. Amazing piece of hardware. So I saw this and had some reward certificates as well as a 20% off coupon so I thought what the heck I only am 26.00 out of pocket. I figured it would at least be worth that. I was wrong!! I am the Technology Facilitator for an elementary school and I am not a stranger to setup and configuration as well as connectivity issues.
Pros: Easy To Set Up
Cons: Low Range, No Amazon Instant Video, No Time Warner App, Slow Connection Speed, Unreliable connection
Summary: This would be a good beta test unit. Not quite ready for prime time YET. Not thrilled with it yet, but having premium silver status I get 60 days to see if netgear continues to do meaningful upgrades to firmware. If not I'll consider it not worth the gamble and return. I have a logitech revue, like it alot. Would like another gtv for my 2nd tv, using a roku on it for now which would go to the bedroom tv.
Summary: After setup, it rebooted and all it did from that point on was crash. I tried resetting it and it wouldn't work. Apparently, there is something wrong with the OS. Hopefully Netgear figures it out.
Summary: I have used a couple Google TVs before from Vizio and Logitec. This one from Netgear is by far one of the worst. From day 1 since it arrived, it continues to have problem. The aVia app which comes preinstalled in the box for user to play the media files crashes all the time when tried to play something. Then, eventually it crashes every time I tried to enter the app. I had to give it a hardware reset and wiped everything out to get it back functioning.
Summary: I bought this NeoTV Prime as well as the Sony Internet Player NSZ-GS7 at the same time to compare. For some reason, the NeoTV picture quality on my 106" projector screen looks better than the Sony's. I compared Live TV, VUDU, Netflix, etc. It may be the different video processing like NeoTV's Deep Color setting. I'm keeping the NeoTV and returning the more expensive Sony.
