    Comments about Sony Internet Player With Google TV:

    Basically this product turns your T.V. into a giant voice command operated smart phone. No more fumbling with different remote controls etc. etc. etc. : Once turned on, all you need to do ask for something and goes on its own through your T.V. channels and or On Demand, and or online on the internet and immediately delivers what you asked for. Because my ceiling fans,air conditioning, and lights are enrolled on my wireless network to enable operating them through my smart phone they are now operable through voice command on my T.V. !

    A good gadget

    Comments about Sony Internet Player With Google TV:

    I was a bit disappointed in the lack of Hulu + support. There is an app called Play on you can download that gets around this deficiency to some extent by making your PC to function as a media server and thus fool Hulu into allowing access. The Netflix interface is excellent. The remote functions well, although the mouse pad takes some practice.

    Comments about Sony Internet Player With Google TV:

    Sorry to say that this Sony product was a let down for me. Purchased my original Internet Player less than a year ago and noticed glitches about two weeks into it. Freeze ups was the main issue and it seemed to be due to heat syncing, in other words the box it self would get very hot to the touch. When you have to start unplugging equipment again and again to get them to work, there is an issue. Sent the unit off to repair and receive a replacement unit in short time, less than two weeks. All was well or so it seemed. Here we go again with freeze ups and signal blocking. Hope your experience is better than what I'm having.

    The Most Under-Rated Internet Player

    By PharmD

    from Arizona

    Comments about Sony Internet Player With Google TV:

    Aside from Apple politics...this unit delivers! 1080p, dual core processor, and possesses decent apps for present and future. One will not go wrong in adding this unit to any TV. Last but not least ...the bluetooth is great for using with my Sony Premium Dock RDP-XA900IP as a second speaker ....goodbye SONOS!

    Impressive, with some (temporary) drawbacks

    By Innovator

    from Washington DC

    Comments about Sony Internet Player With Google TV:

    As a first time Google TV owner, I have to say that overall, I'm impressed with this device. The new voice search works extremely well, and the new PrimeTime app is a breath of fresh air in discovering live content. The remote control is also refreshing to use in that in addition to using traditional remote control arrow keys, I can now use a touch track pad, backlit keyboard, or my voice to search for, and interact with new content on my device. As for cons, the initial device set-up takes (by it's own menu’s admission) a solid 20 minutes to complete, which seems unusually long for such an advanced device. I also wish the Google Play app store had more compatible apps for the NSZ-GS8, as so many apps currently in the Google Play store are only compatible with mobile Android devices. However, at the very least, I wish for now this player would gain support for the HBO GO and Hulu Plus apps. Integration with Facebook, and especially its new Graph search tool to show Google TV users what's trending inside of their own social networks would also be a welcome addition down the road... Also, as for the three free movies Sony offers, well you only get to choose from 15 movies: Anonymous, Battle Los Angeles, Colombiana, Friends with Benefits, Ghost Rider, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, Jack & Jill, Just Go With It, Men In Black, Men In Black 2, Moneyball, Smurfs, Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, and The Pirates! Band of Misfits -- This isn’t exactly the most robust or most desirable collection to choose from. So for future Google TV customers, I hope Sony expands their offerings. In conclusion, even with the limitations listed above, this is a very impressive device, if for no other reason than because its Google TV voice and PrimeTime user interfaces make accessible a new world of content to users that in my opinion have essentially been “locked away� behind poor user interfaces for years. This device is a true game changer that I have no doubt will only improve in the months to come.
