Sony Google TV is a wonderful TV

Summary: We personally have two of these Sony Google TVs in our house. When searching for a new TV, we typically tend to look at CNET and look at the reviews and specs that are offered there. With this TV, we were really looking for something that we felt visually was comparable to my husband's Panasonic Plasma TV, which they do not make anymore. One of the coolest things this TV comes with it the very intuitive remote control.
Summary: Performance of this TV has been really good ... this is my first internet tv and also my first LED/LCD based television. colors are good ... there is an yellowish tinge sometimes on black background images ... not that distracting though. Internet option is really good. able to watch live cricket matches over this television by browsing to few free links. Overall impressed with the quality of television. 1 disadvantage is the glossy screen.
"Now at Android 3.2 easily the most fantastic TV owned"

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.
Summary: I am very pleased with this product. It opens up a whole new world of , entertainment options. I can link with my laptop,android phone and tablet as well. Everything in HD. Its great for surfing the web.
Summary: Overall, this HDTV is nice. Honestly, I don't know why people are having problems with the remote. If you're somewhat tech savy, then this is the perfect tv. It's fun to use and has a really smooth look and feel. This HDTV works with ALL consoles. The only problem that this HDTV has so far is that there is a slight lag when you are playing video games. I'm going to try and calibrate the tv and game(check game's options.), and hopefully it will be at the right pace!
Summary: I found this tv to be great with almost everything. I even found a great price for it considering all the other higher prices. Only problem was with streaming mp3 music and divx video from our networked computers. Sony prohibits it and this was a deal breaker. I suspect they prohibit it because it cuts into their sales of dvds and cds. We ended up just purchasing a regular lcd tv and adding the Logitech Revue with Google TV.
Summary: Initially I was very confused as there were so many options available for internet TV varying on different parameters like pricing, features, TV dimensions etc. Pricing was more concerned for me as my budget was around $500-700 max for internet TV and in that range this TV fitted the best. The prime feature I was looking for was inbuilt youtube app & browser and Sony-G TV fullfils both of these.
Summary: I am so glad I got this tv it is fantastic! I bought it mostly because with it being internet ready I can mount it above my fireplace and still connect to my Netflix and other tv viewing wirelessly. The app store is fun too - you can completely customize this tv to your specific needs and wants.
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: I love this TV. I recommend calling the Sony helpline. Have them walk you through all the steps when setting up. Make sure your cable and wifi is properly set up before setting up this TV. If you can, buy a really long ethernet cable. This will help just incase the TV does not pick up the wifi signal.
