Sony NSZ-GS7
2.5 Star Review  cnet.com - Jun 24, 2012

THE GOOD: The <b>Sony NSZ-GS7</b> has a vastly improved, double-sided remote for Google TV, with a large touch pad and a full keyboard. Its a small, stylish box and the only current set-top box that supports Google TV. THE BAD: The Google TV software continues to disappoint. There arent dedicated apps for major streaming services like Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, and MLB.TV, nor is Googles own movie rental service supported. Major content providers like ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, Comedy Central, and MTV still block Google TVs software from streaming browser-based video. And the software is still buggy and difficult to use. THE BOTTOM LINE: The Sony NSZ-GS7 has sleek hardware and an innovative remote, but its hampered by the still too-limited and frustrating Google TV software.

4 Star Review   By Tedd on Sony - Official Store - Feb 17, 2014   

For a product way cheaper than a computer, this unit does most things quite well, and much better than other media players on the market. If you want good network performance use the Ethernet connection rather than Wi-Fi. Obviously there is room for development, for example compatibility with Skype and VideoLan would be great, but it's a nifty addition to any TV set.

Not Impressed! Over 2 years and no new apps !
1 Star Review   By frodoo on Sony - Official Store - Jan 4, 2014   

I bought this unit over a year ago and have had nothing but problems with it. Sony & or Google have not made new apps since I bought this NSZ-GS7. I was under the impression that Sony & Google, had or would have, more apps available for this unit in time but no go so far. Anyone who buys now in 2014 should know that in over 2 years since this device has come out, there have been no new apps. Very disappointing!! The unit needs more processing power and speed and more on board memory. So many things Sony could have done and didn't. I will not buy Sony again. I am surprised with this joint venture, Google and Sony couldn't have done better. Don't get sucked in by what the box tells you and way over priced!!!!!

HBO Go
2 Star Review   By NoHBOGo on Sony - Official Store - Sep 16, 2013   

I purchased the Sony NSZ-GS7 at Best Buy during July 2013. The print advertisement features HBO Go. When I listed the Apps, it had HBO Go. Within weeks, HBO Go was no longer listed. HBO Go was the primary reason I purchased this device. I am very, very disappointed

NSZ-GS7 Horrible Equipment
1 Star Review   By mrh5 on Sony - Official Store - May 26, 2013   

This product is horrendous. I strongly advise individuals to avoid this product. I have high-speed internet connectivity in my house with dual-band high quality wifi. Despite this this unit never works. I have an Apple TV and numerous other devices running and streaming in my house that work just fine, yet this unit never works. It just loads and loads, and loads and then never plays. When it does play it is often without sound. It claims the internet signal is week, but considering every other device in my house and even an apple TV sitting right next to it work just fine seems like nonsense to me. Definitely returning this unit. Don't waste your time with purchasing one.

Streaming internet player NSZ-GS7
2 Star Review   By Pmartin on Sony - Official Store - May 12, 2013   

The unit has it all! Great features,apps Utube,Cracle,Pandora,Goodle and more, great picture, great sound,outputs for home theatre...optical audio out is great to have, most streaming players dont have this. However, WI FI is horrible- with slow downloads and buffering. I had Time Warner come out, change my router and upgrade my internet speed.."extreme speed package" @ $82 per month, to make this work. Still buffers and freezes. Then added Net gear range extender, with no improvement. Taking it all back, usless in wireless connection. Shame, I really like what it was meant to do, just doesnt work well on WiFi. My older roku player works fine, just does not have Utube,goodle TV which I wanted to have.Good to buy if you direct wire, not good if you plan to use WiFI.

5 Star Review   By trvcrch83 on Sony - Official Store - Apr 30, 2013   

Like I said I use it all the time. I`m using it now for the review. People complain the remote isn`t good for games, but I didn`t but it to play games... That`s why Sony makes the PS3. For the price, compared to some of the others it`s in a class of it`s own! I got this one without the Blu Ray player because I already have one. With this machine I have one remote that will control every component I have. Love it.

Needs improvment
3 Star Review   By ErbNet on Sony - Official Store - Apr 22, 2013   

This product could do so much more if given an updated Android OS and more Apps. I tried other Android HDMI sticks and found them to be unstable. For this reason I bought this Sony product. End result was that I gave up functionality for stability. Hopefully Sony and Google update GTV to rectify this issue.

Great design and easy to use
4 Star Review   By AlfromONT on Sony - Official Store - Mar 17, 2013   

Since the Adobe Flash player (ver 10.2.164) is built into the Google Chrome browser it cannot be updated to the latest version (11.6.602). For Rogers customers, this means you will not be able to stream any shows from rogersondemand as the website requires minimum ver 10.3 of Flash player.

5 Star Review   By news2me on Sony - Official Store - Mar 3, 2013   

I was looking for a wi-fi enabled media device fro streaming music, photos, NetFlix, etc. This one won out over WD Live and am glad it did. It was so easy to set up,I was up and running in 20 minutes with soundbar and tv all connecting through the awesome remote. Still learning all the cool things but happy so far!

3 Star Review   By frodosk on Sony - Official Store - Feb 17, 2013   

Great idea!! I am enjoying the device but there is limited use for it. Google and/or Sony have not made many Apps. I don't see this NSZGS7 device going far!! Really sad especially with the price they put on it. Great Idea / Priced to fail. You really dropped the ball Google and Sony. Too bad i can't recommend to my family or friends. :(

Hardware GREAT; software needs some work...
4 Star Review   By POuimette on Sony - Official Store - Dec 7, 2012   

Received my unit earlier this week; some inconsistencies with networking - would be nice to select Fixed IP for LAN - not just under WiFi. Biggest challenge has been odd behaviour of user interface where in many apps, does not work as expected, example: could not select purchase date from popup calendar in registration thus not completed; other is you can hover and highlight a menu item but cannot select. Thankfully my issues are not with hardware and hope that Sony developpers will address these software 'anomalies' - video processing and HDMI pass-through are great!

NSZGS7
3 Star Review   By LakewoodQuebec on Sony - Official Store - Dec 6, 2012   

If you want a very easy to set up media player for Google TV to watch your Canadian shows and Canadian NetFLIX - you will find this to be a very easy unit to set up and use. The capabilities of this unit are consistent with NETFLIX's policy. Canadian users must only access Canadian NETFLIX. Check this out very, very carefully before buying. Otherwise, a great unit.

Not what I expected
1 Star Review   By AlanStJean on Sony - Official Store - Nov 26, 2012   

I purchased this because I wanted a different one then the one I already had. However after pluggin it in and going through everything. I returned it. Why? it will streaming content from your computer, but it does require a server program to run on your computer. That's not required with a media streamer I purchased for 1/2 the price. The media player needs to support DLNA!!! I purposing bought this to stream content from my computer and I did not want to start setting up a server program as well. I wanted a plug and play. This doesn't cut it. The key board is a great little item but it takes some getting us to and is quite big.

A BIG WASTE!!!!!
1 Star Review   By DCarter on Sony - Official Store - Nov 25, 2012   

I bought this device after canceling cable. Bought a really nice TV for this device. After 3 days of not being able to see any games or TV without paying for everything. I`ve come to the conclusion that I should have never dropped cable. IF everyone would be honest. This is a big WASTE!!!!!!!! Read the online reviews. If you want to see movies, live TV shows, browse the internet. Just get cable and a computer (Bundle pack). You`ll be sorry if you purchase this device....TRUTH

Box of short cuts to pay for stuff
1 Star Review   By Sigh on Sony - Official Store - Oct 25, 2012   

I was talked out of buying a Smart TV at Costco with the promise this device would due me better in the long run. I have had it a week. Most apps are short cuts to sites you need to pay to use the content on. Stuff that should be free such as YouTube worked once an not since. US product, not ready for Canada. Before someone asks if my wifi is working. I am on my laptop wirelessly now staring at YouTube loading (again) waiting for the Try Again message. Back to Costco it goes along with the TV. PS - I don't write reviews. First one. Never been this dissappointed with a product.

Internet Player with Google TV
4 Star Review   By cranemanjerry on Sony - Official Store - Sep 11, 2012   

This thing is great, I was thinking of a Smart Tv, then I decided this was better because it is not tied to one tv, with the wireless option it can be moved anywhere and we can take it when we go camping or on a trip and use it anywhere there is an internet connection or wireless. Can't exspress how much we love this, and it was cheap enough that I may just buy more. Thanks Sony for another great product!!!!

Great device to connect to your TV
5 Star Review   By otum on Sony - Official Store - Sep 10, 2012   

I've used just about every streaming device available including the Sony NSZ-GT1, Apple TV, Roku, Boxee Box and anything else you can think of. The GS7 beats them all. Sony made a huge improvement with the remote with key functions on one side and the backlit keyboard on the other. The availability of content is unmatched and the Chrome browser is better than the browser on other devices. In fact, most of the other devices don't even let you access the full Internet. If you want a single device that aggregates just about all the content that you need, this is a great choice.

No DTS Audio, No DLNA
2 Star Review   By tafypz on Sony - Official Store - Sep 4, 2012   

I would give this device a 5 stars if it would support DLNA and mainly DTS audio for movies. The device comes with Plex client installed which could take care of streaming content but it does require a server program to run on your computer. The media player needs to support DLNA. There is no DTS , DTS-MA support for videos so any movie with a mix of DTS and AC3 tracks will only allow you to have AC3 audio and nothing if the movie is DTS only... The DTS thing is probably a licensing issue but if sony can include it in their bluray player they should be able to do the same in this device.

Excellent Must Have System for any TV! 5 STARS!!!
5 Star Review   By TechyGuru on Sony - Official Store - Aug 28, 2012   

For $200 its well worth converting your big screen TV in an Internet TV with faster streaming and better resolution too with HDMI 1080P quality. The box unit is in piano black and it small and light which does not get in the way with other devices next to your TV. IR Blaster is a huge plus to have the remote control other devices to the TV as well. Configuration is very simple as well. You can go on your phone's Playstore to download an app to convert your cell phone into a remote as well. Multi tasking with adjustable split screening is a hug e plus too. The Google TV Search Engine is excellent as well since you can find other shows, videos or etc that you cannot normally find on your home computer or laptop. The 2 USB ports come in handy as well as the exthernet port and the 2nd HDMI port. For $200 its a no brainer great deal and recommend this over Apple TV any day.

Better than expected
5 Star Review   By Flank on Sony - Official Store - Aug 11, 2012   

I am loving this things. It works and does exactly as advertised. The reviews had me iffy about it, but I guess it up to the individuals preferences. Give it a shot you can always a return it.

Over Heating Issues
2 Star Review   By Neatwords on Sony - Official Store - Aug 2, 2012   

I was a previous owner of the GT1, and I was very excited when I got the GS7 with it's new ARM -based processor. I was very happy when my 3D channels passed through the google tv box, which didn't work on the previous generation with the GT1 and Revue. The new remote is a cool design, but I actually prefer the older one which seemed more effective to change channels. I find it annoying to keep flipping the remote to use the keyboard or change the channel based on number or name. I called Sony Technical support regarding my pass-through failing after a few hours, and they had no fix. Their only suggestion was to use different HDMI cables. Sony needs released this product too soon. If you don't need 3D, get yourselves the older Sony GT1. If you need 3D, get the vizio co-star.

Sony STB II
5 Star Review   By overtimeman on Sony - Official Store - Jul 29, 2012   

I don't know about all the other reviews,but this Sony is a step in the right direction. It is a step up from the Revue which is retired to a secondary TV.There is already a work around to get a full sized keyboard to work with the G7.I'm sure Sony will be upgrading features as they come available.As with any new product there will be growing pains. Apps,give them time.

Crashes my DVR
2 Star Review   By StyloRouge on Sony - Official Store - Jul 26, 2012   

I just purchased this from Madison avenue in New York city I was so excited but now I am very dissapointed The machine crashes my DVR constantly. My DVR reboots all the time. I have connected it to my Denon Receiver and i experience a lot of handshake problems. I live in Canada and they better fix it with a quick update before it come out here in August. If there is no handshake problems the device is awesome. The interface Chrome the Apps all work fine. I tried asking for support from Sony but no one has gotten back to me.

Terrible
1 Star Review   By rdrobinson3 on Sony - Official Store - Jul 24, 2012   

I am a huge android fan. I write apps for a living and so naturally I thought this Google TV would be great for me. it turns out that nothing really works well. Netflix and Pandora lags. The remote only works sometimes (try switching to the keyboard and sometimes it is not responsive). I am highly technical and even I find this device frustrating. My wife attempts to use it every day and gets fed up after a few minutes waiting on apps to load or play content.

What went wrong Sony
1 Star Review   By Salem on Sony - Official Store - Jul 23, 2012   

I do expect a lot from Sony, but this release brought a huge disappointment, why did you remove the blu-ray player, I believe you are heading to the wrong direction. If I has an influence on Sony's technology and strategy I would have done it this way: 1- I would have kept the blu-ray. 2- offered two options for the remote control, one for gaming and one for easy browsing, touch screen, back led. 3- Another important feature that will change the world of sony is adding a recording feature, with a 20 or 50 GB HDD. come one Sony, SSD are all over the place and CHEAP, what is wrong with you, people pay 10 $ per month for stupid DVR's, and 15$/month for stupid TiVo, Do it right, drop this product, and Do it right. You have my contact info already if you need to ask me for more for my feedback, Sony you better get your act together or others will beat You, and you will be a story that everyone is talking about (in HISTORY).

Good media player
4 Star Review   By CoolDude on Sony - Official Store - Jul 22, 2012   

This is a very nice device with cool remote control. Very easy to use. I have set the remote to control my TV as well as my Pioneer audio/video receiver. Web access is very easy and simple. Built-in NAS access app (Media Player app) is marked as "Upcoming" and Sony support told that it will be released by end of July 2012. So still need to experience NAS access. Sony/Google should add lot of apps that are compatible with Google TV to make this device more attractive.

Great product, need more apps.
4 Star Review   By MatleM on Sony - Official Store - Jul 12, 2012   

I received this product at the Google IO Sony Google TV after party. The best features : - The controller (Some people hate it, I find it pretty useful and well done.) - Internet on your TV (Chrome browser too, which lets you browse all other devices bookmarks) - Once you set up a Plex server with all your TV shows and movies, the Google TV experience really shines. It is simply amazing to have everything on my personal computer and to be able to stream all my movies either on my phone, my tablet or the TV. The problems : - Need more apps... I live in Canada so most of the streaming apps are useless for me. - The controller is not designed for games - The play store is really limited... Most (if not all) of the android apps are not compatible with this device.
