Sony's NSX-46GT1 Internet TV makes browsing on the web through your television as easy as ever with its LED edge lit image quality, 1080p and tons of content from Google TV. Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey review the QWERTY keyboard remote, built-in wireless and more for its $1,100 price tag.
What You Need to Know
- The back is all white.
- It’s only about 2” thin with some inputs on the side.
- The front is all black with an edgeless design.
- 4 HDMIs.
- 4 USBs, so you can stream media from a thumb drive.
- 1 Component and 1 Digital Audio.
- It's got the full keyboard and directional pad as well as an optical mouse sensor.
- Using the optical mouse isn't easy, though, so we just ended up using the d-pad most of the time.
- The keyboard works well; the buttons have a nice click feeling and they're easy to reach.
- There's also two shoulder buttons than you can use to scroll and zoom in the browser.
- Overall, we liked using this.
- When browsing Flash-based websites or Netflix, it does so with no problems.
- It's got a faster processor than the Logitech Revue, so it did feel a bit quicker when switching between applications or browsing the web.
- As you can see, the Google TV interface is an overlay over your cable or Blu-ray player, which is why it works so well.
- It's still the easiest way to stream internet content on your TV.
- Google TV should also be getting the ability to download apps from the Android Market later this year, too.
- The TV looks really good; colors are bright and accurate, especially because of the LED edge-lighting.
- Blacks are deep, but the mix of the Google TV overlay and normal television seems like it confuses the backlights, so there might be some bleeding over.
- It doesn't have the 120 Htz Smooth Motion technology, but action scenes still looked clear.
- It's also not 3D, but overall, we liked the picture quality.
