  • Summary: if you like flip-flapping around with remote control to point and click flip one side to click on reply flip other side to type flip back to other side to send-- to type e-mails then this internet player for you. if you don't like horse arsing around typing e-mails or searching on net then this crap not for you. the ONLY good part is voice command find movies for you like amazon kindle HD fire neither one worth buying.

Disappointing, to say the least.

Thomas J., Newegg
10 May 2014
  • Summary: If you're looking to eliminate your t.v. bill, this will NOT be a good alternative. To enjoy it, properly, will end up paying Netflix, Hulu, Amzn Prime, etc, etc, to watch your movies and shows. The plus to this is, in the long run, that your monthly t.v. viewing WILL be reduced, but far from eliminated and you will be paying for exactly what you want to watch, not an exorbitant amount of money for a bunch of rubbish that you don't want.
  • Pros: Well... it's free t.v. and I suppose you get what you pay for.
  • Cons: First of all, this lame beast is SLOW. It, probably, has a Pentium II processor, at best. The OS is erratic and unstable and to top it off, pretty much all of the "free t.v." sites are just about crippled from heavy user traffic and prolific usage of add media.

Not what I was hoping for

jason phipps, Amazon
20 March 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this item instead of a Roku 3 because of the web broswer capacity. I was a little wary because the app system of the Apple Tv and the Roku make jumping around simple and easy, but I was hopeful. I got the box hooked up to my TV, and while set up was a little cumbersome, it wasn't a sever drawback to the product. What I did find cumbersome, however, was use of the remote. I did find navigating through the app system was pretty slick, so again, I was hopeful.

Issues began after two weeks....

Robert, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: A couple of weeks after a seamless installation and setup the audio started lagging behind the video. I'd reboot the GS8 and it would start working correctly again. Then, an issue began where I'd be watching something on my DVR, fast forward the show and the audio would be gone. Reboot the device and corrected again. I tested by disconnecting the DirecTV DVR from the GS8 and plugging it straight into the TV and trying to replicate the issue.

its not worthy for 128$

RJ "RaRi", Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: I'm using logitech Revue for the past two years. I thought this will be an upgrade but very disappointed with the purchase. Remote was not working well. its clunky and very slow. If you already have a Google tv don't think about it. its not an upgrade option Compared to Revue it has the same hardware configuration. one gb ram and same version of google tv sofware. only difference is in the processor. it has a new generation ARM processor.

Audio and Video out of sync and could not get resolved.

Book Lover, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit and I'm returning it because no matter what media I played the audio and video are out of sync. The audio is behind the video. I tried using the av-sync tuning parameters but had no success. The problem is with content from this box. Using another input source, the TV is fine. I can also stream content, like Amazon Prime Video, to other devices in the house and there is no problem.

Pretty disappointing

Tyronne, Amazon
1 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this product specifically because it has Google TV and has the Chrome browser. Lots of features but all of them seem to be in the early stages of development and are pretty disappointing. It was a quick set up and was able to integrate with my TiVo and Sound System fairly easily. The best part of this system is the remote - it's quite well designed. However, the internet browsing and the ability to play video content from the internet is horrible!

I really tried to like this item, but......

Gary P., Amazon
27 May 2013
  • Summary: The concept of Google TV has intrigued me for a while now. I looked at the earlier generation models, and had nothing but issues with them. Now, a few years later, I thought I would test the waters again. I really wanted this to work, so I ordered the Sony Internet Player on 20 May 2013 and gave it a try. First, setup was fairly painless. It attached to my wireless network without issue, and since I have Sony components, it hooked up with the TV effortlessly.
