Rated 4 out of 5 by AlfromONT Great design and easy to use
Since the Adobe Flash player (ver 10.2.164) is built into the Google Chrome browser it cannot be updated to the latest version (11.6.602). For Rogers customers, this means you will not be able to stream any shows from rogersondemand as the website requires minimum ver 10.3 of Flash player.

Rated 4 out of 5 by POuimette Hardware GREAT; software needs some work...
Received my unit earlier this week; some inconsistencies with networking - would be nice to select Fixed IP for LAN - not just under WiFi. Biggest challenge has been odd behaviour of user interface where in many apps, does not work as expected, example: could not select purchase date from popup calendar in registration thus not completed; other is you can hover and highlight a menu item but cannot select.
Thankfully my issues are not with hardware and hope that Sony developpers will address these software 'anomalies' - video processing and HDMI pass-through are great!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sigh Box of short cuts to pay for stuff
I was talked out of buying a Smart TV at Costco with the promise this device would due me better in the long run. I have had it a week. Most apps are short cuts to sites you need to pay to use the content on. Stuff that should be free such as YouTube worked once an not since. US product, not ready for Canada. Before someone asks if my wifi is working. I am on my laptop wirelessly now staring at YouTube loading (again) waiting for the Try Again message. Back to Costco it goes along with the TV. PS - I don't write reviews. First one. Never been this dissappointed with a product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by frodosk This won't be for you. Not many Apps
I am enjoying the device but there is limited use for it.
Google and/or Sony have not made many Apps.
I don't see this NSZGS7 device going far!!
Really sad especially with the price they put on it.
Great Idea / Priced to fail.
You really dropped the ball Google and Sony.
Too bad i can't recommend to my family or friends. :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by AlanStJean Not what I expected
I purchased this because I wanted a different one then the one I already had. However after pluggin it in and going through everything. I returned it. Why?
it will streaming content from your computer, but it does require a server program to run on your computer. That's not required with a media streamer I purchased for 1/2 the price. The media player needs to support DLNA!!! I purposing bought this to stream content from my computer and I did not want to start setting up a server program as well. I wanted a plug and play. This doesn't cut it.
The key board is a great little item but it takes some getting us to and is quite big.

Rated 5 out of 5 by news2me NSZ GS7
I was looking for a wi-fi enabled media device fro streaming music, photos, NetFlix, etc. This one won out over WD Live and am glad it did. It was so easy to set up,I was up and running in 20 minutes with soundbar and tv all connecting through the awesome remote. Still learning all the cool things but happy so far!
