If you missed out on Woot.com's Sony Internet Player deal last week, Best Buy's Deal of the Day has something that will make you smile. The NSZ-GS7 is again on sale for 50% off, bringing the price down to a more affordable $99.99. And unlike the Woot.com deal, this one comes with free shipping. Just take action before today is over - you wouldn't want to miss out on this deal a second time.

Yes, $99.99 is pricier than a $35 Chromecast, but there are two key differences to bear in mind. One, you can actually get your hands on a Sony Internet Player right now. Two, Chromecast isn't the Google TV replacement it appears to be. It lacks the ability to run native apps, access to the Play Store, and live TV. This device comes with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor and 8GB of internal memory, significantly higher specs than a Chromecast needs to serve its more-limited function.

The NSZ-GS7 first entered the market in 2012, and it has since been replaced by the nearly-identical GS8 model. The latter comes with a remote that features a microphone for voice searches. A backwards-compatible remote is available for $50, so if you bundle this with the price of today's deal, it's still slightly less than the NSZ-GS7's current price on Amazon.

    It is still too expensive unfortunately.

    I would really like to see a Nexus version of a GTV so you could be comfortable that your device might benefit from any improvemenst in the platform. Its just not mature enough to buy a device and run with it.

    While I love my Logitech Revue for the price I got it for it is still limited and a little buggy, running a very old OS. Also, since its logitech, its got some proprietary crap that was never updated and wasnt good in the first place.

    Get Hangouts on GTV with the ability to run any webcam and make it a nexus like device where Google publishes the updates and I will upgrade.

    I have basic cable (free cable through my apartment complex). How beneficial is Google TV with this setup?

    I have a chromecast too, and as much as I want GTV, I can't seem to figure out why I would want it.

    • CoreRooted

      Without a cable box, GTV still has it's uses (BIG web browser, some games, apps that are mostly already on Android, etc). However, it really shines when it's paired up with a cable or satellite box.

        Appreciate the response. I was trying to sell myself on it, but I just realized that the fact that I'll need 2 remotes now (Logitech Harmony One & GTV Remote) pretty much turned me off. Sucks, I've always wanted to jump into GTV, but I'd rather move into Internet-based TV anyways, like Youtube, controlled through chromecast.

        • CoreRooted

          Actually, there are numerous software based remotes for GTV. I actually use Chromemote on my laptops/desktops and the GTV app on my devices. I haven't used a hardware based remote in ages for my setup.

          But, you're right. If you don't have a real need for it, it then becomes a nice to have item that'll probably collect dust. For my setup, it's perfect because of Netflix, Google Play Music, and the DLNA apps.

          • Ivan Martinez

            Netflix + Google Music = Chromecast
            DLNA Apps (Plex) - Samsung TV App for now, DYING for Chromecast setup

            Chromecast is hooked up through my 7.1 receiver, so I'm balling from a music perspective, and HDMI-CEC means it automatically changes all my inputs. I'm in love and it sounds like GTV (for my needs) is a poor man's version of this.

            Thanks!

    still not as good as the tronsmart t428

    Instead I just ordered the MINIX neo x7, $138 for an A9 quad core, Mali 400, 2gb ram, 16 GB flash, android 4.2.2, SD card, bluetooth, WiFi, miracast, 3 usb, optical audio, ethernet, etc.
    It seems to have a very active development community on the official MINIX forums, but who knows.... willing to be a guinea pig to try this out.
    If only I could get a nexus device like this..
