Reviews and Problems with Sony Internet TV NSX-40GT1

"Now at Android 3.2 easily the most fantastic TV owned"
2 April 2012
Pros: Design. Upgradable Android platform, now at 3.2 with hardware acceleration, Google Play, Developer support (adb). These are really hard to find anywhere today after the Android upgrade made them popular.
Cons: Unfortunately early reviews scared people off and firmware arrived late so sales suferred. That is a real pity for a TV set that is just fantastic now with Android 3.2 Sadly Sony decided to discontinue the model, not their wisest move.
Good tv for the price, expect input lag on HDMI inputs.

Summary: The Sony NSX40GT1 is an excellent tv for the price that I paid (around $600.00). The picture is beautiful and the apps are awesome. I love the "built in" Netflix and there are apps that allow me to watch videos and listen to music from my Windows file shares (a huge plus for me). I am very dissappointed in the input selection, however. It has four USB, four HDMI, RF, and one component input.
Summary: The TV is excellent but I have experienced a couple of problems with the Google Android functions. Sony have been very responsive in providing support but they have advised me that the Browser does not currently support PDF files. Some App's don't work on this Android implementation also.
Impressive TV, but read the reviews so you know what you're in for!

Summary: This TV is used in our bedroom. I got this TV in September for my wife, to replace our old 22" tube TV. I waited a couple months for us to use the TV before writing this review. We are in our early 50's. Pros: Even when it's off, this TV looks great - very sleek and clean, back side is white. All printed documentation that comes with the unit is in English only. No multi-language excess garbage.
Summary: I just got it and a week later on Nov3rd it upgraded to Android 3.1. Everything changed now so whoever got it earlier will have a different experience. Its mcuh better then a "dumb" TV alot more things to play with sort of like an Ipad or a Droid phone and the video quality is really good. Very detailed video adjustments with black correction macro and color correction macro and color temp etc. It gets very sharp.
Summary: bought it online. received it in a week. opened it and connected to Internet with built in wireless. worked immediately. if you plan to use it with your family or friends, create a new google account for the tv. had the tv for a month and still happy with it. media server streaming - a good feature if you have win 7 homegroup set up. can't wait to see android market upgrade.
Summary: Update*** So after the price drop 6+ months ago and right when they did the first update to 3.1 I decided to buy the 32". It made a huge difference in the TV's responsiveness and overall usability. I have no problem populating the program guide, Netflix works like a champ, as well as YouTube. Those are my primary uses for the TV.. The one problem I seem to be having now though is streaming movies from my PC.
Summary: Pros: -Decent picture -lots of stuff built in -nice qwerty remote that feels good in the hands and is easy to type with -netflix and pandora built in -updates frequently through google -works most of the time -decent sound quality from the built in speakers for an led tv IMHO--nice for Pandora -decent interfacing with cable boxes and dvr's Cons: -thick and heavy compared to other LED tv's due to computer components inside I assume, almost plasma like -frequent updates...
