The NSZ-GS7 is probably the best way add the Google TV experience to your existing TV, but Google still has a way to go before it deserves to be a fixture in most living rooms.

from $229.99+

Cons
  • Price is steep compared to other streamersGoogle TV ecosystem is still unproven
Sony NSZ-GS7 Google TV review
More Info Sony's second try at Google TV brings Blu-ray player, streaming box and a new remote Google TV goes international, Sony NSZ-GS7 set-top box up for preorder in the US and UK Google TV officially switching to ARM, Marvell Armada 1500 CPU to lead the charge If at first you don't succeed, try, try again and that's exactly what Google has done with Google TV. With the second generation of Google's software hitting older hardware and some TVs, it only makes sense that Sony would revise its hardware and fill the void left when Logitech decided to leave the party. The $199 NSZ-GS7 from Sony might be the perfect little box for those hoping to internet-enable their TV without actually replacing the TV itself. How well it does at that is exactly what you'll find if you click through.
