Sony Internet Player With Google TV (NSZ-GS7)

PC Magazine
30 December 2012
  • Conclusion: The Sony Internet Player With Google TV (NSZ-GS7) is one of the better ways to get Google TV on your HDTV, even if the platform itself still suffers from a lack of polish.
  • Pros: Well-designed remote. Plenty of functionality. Lots of online services and apps.
  • Cons: Not as polished or intuitive as other media hubs. Finding good apps requires combing through many not-so-great ones.

Sony NSZ-GS7 Google TV box

Hardware.Info

  • Excerpt: Google's thirst for expansion reads like a case study in capitalism. First it was nothing more than one out of many web browsers, now it's one of the largest internet corporations in the world. With Android it owns half of the smartphone market, Gmail is dominant, everyone uses Google Maps, and millions of people watch Youtube every day. So what's missing from the portfolio? Television. Enter Google TV.

Sony NSZ-GS7 Internet Player With Google TV

Sound & Vision Magazine
26 October 2012
  • Excerpt: When I decided to review two Google TV media streamers back to back, I thought there would be little difference between them. After all, Google TVs run on an Android platform, and both the Sony Internet Player with Google TV and Vizio’s Co-Star would have most of the same apps— pre-loaded apps or those available through the Google Play Android Market. I was surprised to find that there was more difference than I had expected.

Sony's NSZ-GS7 boasts an excellent remote, but Google TV still disappoints

CNET
25 September 2012
  • Summary: The Sony NSZ-GS7 has sleek hardware and an innovative remote, but it's hampered by the still too-limited and frustrating Google TV software.
  • Pros: The Sony NSZ-GS7 has a vastly improved, double-sided remote for Google TV, with a large touch pad and a full keyboard. It's a small, stylish box and the only current set-top box that supports Google TV.
  • Cons: The Google TV software continues to disappoint. There aren't dedicated apps for major streaming services like Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, and MLB.TV, nor is Google's own movie rental service supported. Major content providers like ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, Comedy Central, and MTV still block Google TV's software from streaming browser-based video. And the software is still buggy and difficult to use.

Sony’s Google box does Web browsing and apps on your TV

Good Gear Guide.au
20 September 2012
  • Summary: Sony's debut Google TV device in Australia is effective at bringing Web browsing to the big screen -- the Chrome browser works very well. The Google Play app store claims thousands of apps, but few are appealing. Some of the best Google TV apps - HBO Go, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video -- aren't available in Australia, so the Sony box's appeal is largely limited to Web browsing and Sony’s video and music services.
  • Pros: Chrome Web browser is very good, YouTube and Sony Entertainment Network apps are good
  • Cons: Some localisation issues, Google Play library is small and unappealing, No popular streaming video on demand services

Sony NSZ-GS7

TechRadar UK
30 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Google TV potentially compelling, but even in the world of regular firmware updates and new apps, is that enough? It's should fetch video from disparate websites and present it in a source-neutral way. Chrome doesn't do that, and nor does a motley collection of mostly smartphone-centric Google Play apps help in that mission. The real arbiter of content on this Google TV box is an excellent YouTube app that is by far the best place to head to for sheer breadth of content.

Recensie: Google TV (Sony NSZ-GS7)

Computer!Totaal
26 November 2012
  • Summary: We weten niet zo goed wat we moeten denken van de NSZ-GS7 en Google TV. De belofte dat internet naadloos met internet wordt gemengd wordt deels waargemaakt. Het is inderdaad mogelijk om de interface als overlay over het televisiebeeld te leggen en om televisie in een klein venster te kijken terwijl je een andere app gebruikt. Daar houdt het qua televisiebeleving wel mee op, want basale functies als een televisiegids en gemist-diensten ontbreken.
  • Pros: Goede YouTube-app, Goede browser, Afstandsbediening
  • Cons: Slechte mediaspeler, Geen ondersteuning voor DTS, Weinig apps, Doet weinig met tv
