    Great TV for nerds, February 21, 2011
    D. Norden (SC USA) –

    This review is from: Sony NSX-46GT1 46-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LED HDTV, Black (Electronics)

    Let me start with this–If you’re looking for the best possible high-end TV panel on the market, this TV probably isn’t for you.

    If you’re looking for a TV with a lot of features that can most likely only get better with time, I would whole-heartedly recommend this panel.

    Rather than write a long, drawn out review–I will mainly respond to the main criticisms about this panel as well as raise some of my own.

    -Many complain about the 60hz refresh rate. I’m of the camp of thought that feels that TV refresh rates are mostly a marketing ploy. You can feel free to argue with me if you wish, but I don’t have any qualms at all about the 60hz refresh rate for either TV watching OR gaming. I own a PS3 and motion is fluid AND natural–I personally feel that 120hz sets look ‘fake’–also, many sets with higher refresh rates typically have higher input lag for gaming and that is another reason I would rather not buy a fast 120hz TV.

    -I’ve read complaints about edge-lit LED bleed through on this set. It is there. But I’ve only noticed it while the screen was black when my Blu-rays were booting up. Other than that, I haven’t noticed the issue–and I’ve made a conscious effort to look hard for it during normal TV/movie/gaming.

    -Web browsing. I thoroughly enjoy the browsing experience. Granted, I’ve only been connected through wired ethernet (haven’t bothered with wi-fi and I’ve read people having issues via wi-fi, but the web experience is pretty snappy considering it is running an Intel Atom chip. Flash intensive sites (ones with lots of flash-based advertisements) and games like bejeweled can chug along at times (especially during scrolling), but playback of flash-based videos works great–no stutter or slow downs I’ve noticed. I do wish that switching between dual view and TV only view was more seamless (it currently takes 1 or 2 seconds to switch between the two, but this is a very minor complaint in my opinion.

    -Included ‘apps’. Currently, most of what comes on the TV is filler. Most of the ‘apps’ are glorified web-links that show nothing more than video clips. It doesn’t bother me too much only because the official Android Market isn’t available yet–so I’ll make final judgments once real apps are available to put on the TV. But the core apps are there (pandora, netflix, etc) and they all work very well. A big complaint is the Rovi TV guide. If you live in an area where your cable provider doesn’t support Rovi pulling your program information, then you’re out of luck to use the included TV guide app. And after reading on the Google TV forum, there seem to be quite a few people living out of Rovi guide-capable areas–myself included.

    -People have complained about the set-up and boot times for the TV. My initial set-up took about a hour to complete. The initial software update took about 15 minutes to complete (download and install) and then the rest of the time was me trying to figure out how to get my A/V receiver working with the TV. And part of the delay was Sony being ‘green’ and not giving me a printed manual–a minor headache, but not a huge deal. I’ve rebooted the TV several times so far (not due to crashes) because I was playing with the browser user-agent settings (more on that later) and it took about 20 seconds to reboot. I keep the TV set to ‘quick-boot’ (essentially a hibernate option) mode, because I’ve heard a cold-start reboot can take up to 40 seconds (according to others)–I’ve only done a few reboots, and they took about 20 seconds, so I’m not sure if a 40 second boot start is accurate or not. Either way, I’ve chosen the quick boot option and the TV is on instantly. With regards to set-up, I’d say the TV isn’t very hard to get connected and up and running at all. I guess the biggest time-sink during set-up was looking up the manual online.

    -Remote. Remote is great. Keyboard is great and clicky. I find it very intuitive. I have noticed on two occasions the TV getting bogged down with input requests from the remote and it’ll slow down for about 10 seconds (like the volume won’t instantly go up or down, but take a second or two to adjust). I’m sure this is a bug that needs fixing. I wouldn’t worry too much about this because while the remote control lags, the TV or whatever you are watching is not impacted at all–in other words, just because remote is acting slow, doesn’t mean the video stutters–the video and audio continue to play back flawlessly. Also keep in mind the android remote app is available. I have a Droid and the remote app works well. The remote app needs polish–ie droid phone keyboard isn’t 100% functional with the TV (about 90%). But using the Droid’s screen as a mouse is much better than using the optical joystick on the sony remote. Btw, the optical joystick isn’t perfect, but it is very usable. One last comment–I think the Sony remote is great, but it won’t…

    ok guys i dont do much reviews but this tv deserve a worthy praise, first of all the internet apps is VERY good, that was the primary reason why i get this tv. second for those that worried about 60hz, i have news for you most TV services/ps3/xbox360 are in 720p/60hz so if you want to spend the extra 1080p or 120hz then by all mean, i dont see the difference. THIRD if you think this tv color are not vibrant, well try to tune it like this

    under picture mode i put custom
    backlight: max
    pictures 95
    brightness 45
    color 47
    hue: G5
    color temp cool
    sharpness 0
    noise reduction low
    mpeg noise reduction low
    cinemotion auto
    black corrector off
    advance contrast off
    gamma -3
    live color medium

    white balance
    Rgain -4
    Ggain 0
    B-Gain -9
    Rbias -15
    Gbias 3
    Bbias 7

    I have spend the whole week, trying on different settings to get the best color, vibrance and as less noise as possible, and this setting makes it the best, so vibrant that i have watch avatar again after watching it 15 times already. give this setting a try and tweak it to your liking! my tv is now perfect! for the money you honestly cannot get a better LED tv with the feature for less of the price. i dont play games on this tv so i could not tell you how it is, but as far as TV and surfing the net, it is breath taking!

    NOT for GAMING!, December 11, 2010
    Chines “MagnaRider” (San Diego, Ca USA) –

    This review is from: Sony NSX-46GT1 46-Inch 1080p 60 Hz LED HDTV, Black (Electronics)

    This tv looks pretty. The features are nice and the picture is clear. Blue ray looks wonderful and the tv speakers ain’t half bad. The controller has a full keyboard with a motion sensitive scroller for mouse-like use. The controller reactions have slight delay, but that’s no biggy. The biggy is when playing a game on this 60hz overpriced thing. I estimate there is about a 1/10th of a second delay between striking a button on my ps3 and the reaction you see on the screen. That may not sound like much, but if you are playing a fast action game like Modern Warfare 2, it is extremely frustrating. Unfortunately, that is a deal breaker for me. At this price, I should be able to play a PS3 game without problem…which is why this sucker is going back. If you are not a gamer or even a casual gamer, then this tv may suit your needs. If you are, go buy something with at least 120hz. The bare bones minimum of 60hz is a sad oversight for what could be a wonderful television.

    FYI: Set up takes a long time. Expect to lose a good hour or so for updates and settings.
    Browsing the net is a breeze. The browser works like a charm and streaming is great. Wifi was pretty painless.
