The NSZ-GS7 Internet Player with Google TV from Sony might be the perfect little box for those hoping to Internet-enable their TV without actually replacing the TV itself. Google TV uses your existing cable or satellite service so you do not have to switch inputs to use it.

It includes HDMI pass-through, SPDIF, two USB ports, built-in IR blaster, Ethernet and integrated Wi-Fi to provide plenty of connectivity options. The player provides a remote that is Bluetooth and uses standard batteries. It is the touchpad with options like tap-to-click, drag-to-scroll and even pinch-to-zoom that really helps bring the entire player's functionality directly to your living room.

Transform your iPhone, Android phone or tablet into a versatile remote control with a full QWERTY keyboard. Just download the free media remote app if you're looking for one less remote on the coffee table. The app also lets you send Web pages from your phone to your TV to view on the Chrome browser.

Experience your favorite Websites on a grand scale with the built-in Google Chrome browser. With it Flash-based video sites open doors to endless video content and engaging interactivity.

Just type it in and enjoy cross-search results from your cable provider, the Internet, apps and even select Dish DVR. It's all there, instantly. Best of all, Google TV uses your existing cable or satellite service so you do not have to switch inputs to use it
More Apps, More Choices
Download apps directly to your TV from the ever-expanding Google Play Store. Choose from classics like Netflix, Pandora and YouTube or expand your horizons with apps such as Crunchyroll, Redux and Qello. In addition to video and music apps, you can download games, social networking and news apps just like the ones on your smartphone
Remote Control Unlike Any Other
You've never seen a universal remote quite like this. The clickable touchpad works just like the one on your laptop, featuring one-handed operation and multi-touch pinch-and-pull for zoom control. There's also a 3-axis motion sensor for gaming. Flip it over and you'll find a backlit QWERTY keyboard that makes it easy to type at night. And don't worry, it knows which way is facing up so you won't accidentally hit keys on the other side

              Lots stuff to watch.
              3 free movies with purchase.
              Not very responsive sometimes, I think it's because of Honeycomb. It'll get better when updating to ICS or JB.
              Sideloading is a great plus for Android OS.
