Was possibly a great idea, but horribly implemented.

Summary: This is a failure of a TV. While it does display a good picture, that, uhm, is actually all the good I can say about it. Netflix needs to be constantly reset to work correctly. Sometimes twice in the same day.
Pros: Displays good picture. That's about it.
Cons: Netflix only works occasionally, Input lag, Input lag, Input lag, Get the point?
Summary: Have had this Internet TV (NSX-40GT1 40-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LED HDTV) for exactly 6 months. Really haven't tried all of the features, but what I tried I have been fairly satisfied with. It is pretty straight-forward in setting up and getting it going. The remote is a little difficult to understand all of the functions, but I can get by with my types of use. Here's the catch... Sony service and warranty!!! First of all, I wish you could read the warranty info before buying.
Summary: If you are buying this to view your Amazon movies, DON'T. Buy a Roku. The Roku will play internet videos quickly with no lag. I have yet to get an entire 30 minute video to load on this thing.
Summary: I owned the Google TV for about two months it was OK, nothing exceptional and then last Friday I was prompted to do a system update. I dutifully clicked OK and waited... and waited. Nothing. The TV froze and would only show the SONY logo in white taunting me. I called Sony tech service. After a lengthy series of what amounted to "kick the tires" the rep gave up and said I needed to talk to a technical expert.
Input lag, read update at bottom (Will not work with PS3, XBOX360, Wii)

Summary: I spent a long time shopping for a new TV and turned down a bunch because I wanted something cheaper. Once I saw everything Google TV had to offer, I ended up deciding to spend more. Picture: I have seen some complaints about the picture quality but have not had the same feelings myself. I am in love with audio and good sound, an audiophile, but not a big "Nice picture" kinda guy. That being said the picture quality seems awesome.
