Summary: I purchased one of these a few years back direct from Sony. The unit works well as a tv but the google part is too cumbersome and difficult to use. Glad it has several HDMI inputs. This allowed me to hook up a ROKU which is much easier to use and much less cumbersome. The google controller works well with my Uverse cable system. I also purchased the 24 inch because this particular one fit under cabinets in my kitchen on top of a great turntable sold by Amazon.
Summary: The Sony Google TVs are no longer available but I wanted to put a warning out to those who "love" theirs so much. I received one 18 months ago and the power supply inside the TV blew. I brought it to a qualified tech who attempted to order the part. Two months later they were still not able to get the part and the TV was junked after they called me to say the part was just NOT going to be available.

Summary: BEAUTIFUL picture and sound. Everything but the kitchen sink. I have this TV on my kitchen counter and it's not too big but not too small. The only beef was, was trying to navigate and get to the settings to adjust picture and screen, as well as the time of day. The newer Sony models are easier to "navigate" (I have a 46-inch LED TV - NX720). That is much easier to get to the settings than this TV. It's a little complicated, but it takes getting used to.
Sony solid brand, but a couple small dissapointments.

Summary: Sony is a pretty strong brand and I have always had good luck. Overall, the tv is nice with a lot of features. But it had a issue with a large amount of dust behind the screen. And this seems to be an issue with this Sony model, because I bought the same exact tv in a 32 inch direct from Sony. And the same thing. Also the internet browser is a bit slow on both to say the least.
Summary: I bought this tv for two reasons: I wanted a tv in my office and my husband's laptop is getting old so I wanted him to have an alternate internet source. We have used the tv for both purposes and I'm not disappointed! My husband was having a little trouble navigating with the keyboard (and he doesn't do well with change) so I attached a full size keyboard and mouse for him.
Summary: I have two Roku devices, and Netflix running on XBox 360 and Wii. I've played with AppleTV and tried various setups hooking up PC or Mac to a TV screen. At $300, Google TV built into a 24inch screen is a great deal. I think Google TV is my favorite setup for situations where I have cable, especially the basic digital cable box I have, because it adds a guide. The basic digital cable box from Frontier doesn't have any kind of channel guide, but with Google TV, I have it!
Summary: First, as to the other review here, I have high speed internet and the tv is connected wireless. Yes mine did an update also, but the whole process took maybe 10-15 minutes. Wasnt that bad of a wait... The picture is very sharp. Lots of connections. No, I did not buy mine from amazon. I paid a little more than amazon price, but since then amazon's price has gone up to nears what I paid.
Summary: Where to begin ... I purchased this TV because I like to watch TV in the kitchen. I could eliminate my laptop and use Facebook and Netflix without any other boxes to connect. It's wireless 802.11 so I won't even have to run a network line to it. Awesome. So I thought. The TV arrived, and I placed it on the wall in place of the Viewsonic I was replacing. It works fine, I was upgrading. So I thought. After the updates were done uploading, which took hours...
Summary: So for a long time i have been thinking about buying this tv. I read all the reviews on just about every website. I think most are negative. I got the tv 2 hours ago and i wall mounted it in my 3 year old's room. I just love it. For $298 .00 i can stream netflix wirelessly, I can also access my Nas that has all of our ripped movies to mpeg-2 format and wirelessly stream it all. I can also watch my amazon prime free tv shows.
