Sony NSZ-GT1 Reviewed at AnandTech
I’d love to see sales numbers for the NSZ-GT1 and Revue; can’t think the are very good because Sony dropped the price $100 a few days ago. Besides AVRs I think Blu-ray players have the most potential as GoogleTV devices, but I have to wonder if GTV have the chops to make it in a crowded over-the-top apps market. What do you think?
Offering unprecedented content aggregation via a consumer oriented federated search experience, the Google TV (GTV) platform is a fascinating product with incredible promise. Subsequent to its launch amidst high expectations, users have slowly come to terms with the capabilities of the software as well as the underlying hardware platform.Without doubt, the Logitech Revue was the flagship product for Google TV at launch. However, many of its users are finding it hard to justify a dedicated device for just the functionality provided by Google TV. A detailed review of the Revue will follow in the coming weeks. However, the unanimous opinion amongst the editors at AnandTech is that Google TV could only be justified as a bundled value add-on for already existing CE devices in a HT setup. Consumers would probably be willing to pay for Google TV on devices such as TVs, Blu-Ray players, media streamers, STBs or even AV receivers.
