Sony NSX-46GT1 46" Internet Television Review

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


  • $1,100

    As for other pioneer Google TV devices early launches were not that successful due to immature pieces of software and preparations. However this shaped up a lot during 2011 and the arrival of Android 3.1 on these devices in late 2011 changed things a lot in perceived value for these products. Now the NSX series support Android Market/Google Play, developer app development support, hardware acceleration improvements, a revamped UI. Things that would have meant another story had it been there at initial launch. Sadly while these products now shine brighter than ever, they were discontinued by their vendors due to the losses. So if you look for getting a real gem, do not hesitate in going for the NSX-xxGT1 models. Now at Android 3.2 they are impressive. But since they went out of production it will be difficult to find a new one. When the rumor spread that the latest updates were really cool these TV products have become in demand. When it�s too late for the vendors to reap the rewards of them having endeavoured to make these models available.

    "First off this is a awesome TV but like all things new there are a few bugs here and there. I'm a BIG tech fan and the bugs dont really bother me. Random restarts when watching flash. Thumb pad not responding. Volume not responding..... No problem I can handle that but the HDMI lag..... This is a total shame. it makes playing any games on PS3 Xbox 360 WII impossible. anything that plugs VIA HDMI and oh composite lag so bad that no other feature this TV has to offer can make you over look this problem.
    Advice if your looking for a "cool" looking TV and can deal with a few bugs (That im sure their going to fix VIA updates) and dont play video games of ANY kind.... you'll love this tv.
    To all my COD bothers and sisters.... stay away from this TV like you would a claymore in S&D with no flack jacket on......
    you been warned"
