Pros I am not all that tech savy and so far am having NO problems navigating this system!!
Cons My only problem is-I need a cut off screen say NOW IT IS TIME TO GO TO BED!!!
Summary Gosh I am a great Grandmother and needed another flat screen TV. I went to the store and almost fell over my feet when I saw this TV!!!
Why wouldn't a person get one, it cost no more then a comperable Led of any other brand...
I did but extra warranty though since it is so new..
Pros I needed a TV with an analog input for the videophone (everyone in the house but me is deaf). The set-up was easy and gave us Internet access and basically another computer for the price of a good TV.
Cons So far, the only con is the keyboard remote is a little clunky. It would be nice to have one a simple remote with just TV functions and input selection.
Summary I am still learning all the features and a little overwhelmed at all the options but so far no problems at all (I even managed to program my phone as a remote)
Pros more than i even know, there are so many crazy short cuts and cool things this tv can do. if you want a tv that can also act as a computer (for entertainment purposes) this is for you. the amount of free movies, vids, and media is never ending ;)
Cons i'm a techie IT guy and this tv makes me feel like my grandma trying to program her vcr, but i've only had 1 day so give me a few more and i'll get better hopefully. tv is very easy to setup but very complicated to use to its full potential so far.
Summary i love it so far but before i knew it i had wasted about 5 hours of my awesome life just playing around with this tv trying to figure out all the awesome things it can do. it will definitely take me a while to learn how to use some of the more cooler features of this tv. originally i was pushing for the tv and my wife was like "do we have to, why" and after she got her crack at it she told me this morning how addicted she already is to it. if you watch any sort of videos on your computer throughout your day this tv is for you.
my wife watches japanese tv shows and movies on her computer and now she can watch them in HD with the nice stereo surround sound from the comfort of our big ass couch instead of the uncomfortable computer room. i see this tv putting 10 lbs on my wife and i by next spring. tv is awesome but now i will have to work less and go to school less in order to watch all the stuff available to us now. i have no reason to leave my couch anymore!!
this tv is to tv's what android was to phones in my opinion and its only going to get better in the coming months. i saw where people were saying this tv was not the sharpest or clearest tv on the market today, i also saw where the cost breakdown showed that this tv is basically $1250 (46") and the computer google android part was like $250 so that tells me that i have basically a $1250 dollar tv set with some extras. comparing this tv to other $1250 tv's and not comparing this tv to the best and newest $2k tv's out there this tv is just fine. my only complaint on that level is that it has a bit of a glare when looking at it from the side angle or with a lamp next to you so just know this and plan accordingly.
in my opinion this type of tv will be in everyone's home in the future, this is just the first gen model ;)
so my only cons at this point are the learning curve in order to get it to do all the neat fancy things it boasts about. the remote is a little overwhelming and although it may do all the fancy stuff i still prefer to use my normal cable box remote for just simple tv watching as of day 2 of ownership but the sony remote is handy just a little odd and will probably take some time to get used to. i wish i could have designed a custom remote, i would have placed some functions in different places, removed some keys, and added some extra keys,, for example the 'tab' button on the sony remote is the recall or last button from my cable box remote, how is someone supposed to know this, also my page up and page down (single buttons) on my cable box remote now require pressing 2 buttons simultaneously in order to get the sony remote to act in the same manner (func+ pageup or pagedown). the sony remote is nice but a little odd, thats all i'm saying.
Pros Its pretty much making your tv a computer. You can surf the internet and it has satellite like properties. The only thing it cant do though is to make word documents and that stuff. Otherwise its great.
Cons These are still pros. You can connect a wireless keyboard and mouse to the tv or the google tv and surf the internet from atleast 30 ft away. LOL.
Summary best idea out there so far and simple.
Pros Has a dumbed down version of the Android Market (now Google Play or something)
Cons Has absolutely no support for connecting devices (and greys out options in the setting menus in order to adjusts things to fix problems). Definitely not a tv if you plan on using anything other than same year Sony devices.
Summary Not too impressed. My $300 black Friday tv is better. (Westinghouse) I can connect my cat to it (and chihuahua)
