Top Customer Reviews
So, to the review. The Geek Squad guy came and installed it along with a new Yamaha receiver and 55" Sony TV. I already had a home theater set u- from when we built our house so the Geek guy was just replacing old equipment. While this is not a review of the Geek Squad, the guy did do an excellent job and gave my wife and I instruction on how to use all the new devices. When he left we stumbled around a bit following our notes and after an hour or so began to get the hang of it. While the GT1 is not without some warts. It does take some getting used to after which it is a pretty slick little device.
The PROs for me are it is a Blu Ray player (not my primary goal). While my new SONY TV is "internet connectable", I need a Blu Ray player to get Netflix etc. The GT1 allows this plus being a DVD/Blu Ray player. The real bonus is it allows me to surf the net. All in all it fits well into my surround-sound home theater. [Actually, the Geek guy got my sound system working better than it has ever been.]
The CONs for the GT1 are: small size of the controller and keys on the key pad; my 70 year old finger tips are big and blunt. The manual that came with it is practically non-existent. It would have been a real chore without the Geek guy's kick start. Even after he left, I had some questions he didn't touch on and not explained in the "manual". I went to the SONY online "help guide" where I got a phone number that put me in contact with a guy to easily explained the solution. There is an FN key on the controller that needs to be used in combination with other keys; this is not labeled or explained in the manual. Once I saw that, I understood more about the controller. The SONY help guy was excellent.
So, I am giving this device a four plus rating to counter the very negative reviews. It seems that some of these folks had a SONY axe to grind or were too impatient to try to work through the bugs. I like the device and have no trouble recommending it. It will no doubt get better as it evolves.
First of all, I went to purchase a Blu-ray player with wireless internet. Why? I wanted to get Netflix in my bedroom and I wanted to be able to play DVDs too. I knew I was looking at spending around $200.
I walked by this in the store and gave it a whirl and was already impressed. The menus are not confusing if you have a smart phone with apps. It is pretty much set up like that. Even the keyboard is reminds me of my android cell phone. Then I found out it wasn't that much more money for this than a decent internet blu-ray.
I bought it and took it home. I wanted to wait for my hubby to come home and hook it up, but I was too excited so I gave it a go. I followed the easy start up guide in the box and I had everything set up and running in about 15 minutes. Now this was impressive. It was easy to follow instructions, great on screen commands, super duper easy remote set up. I was set to go. The remote that comes with the unit flawlessly controls my TV/Cable box DVR and this unit.
Now for the best parts of this unit. I can get my Netflixs with no problem. I can even read, send, recieve emails. I can look at my facebook and post and do anything else I normally do. I got an email from my dad that had a photo attached and I was able to pull up the photo on my 37" tv. I love being able to search the internet right in my bedroom on a very nice 37" monitor. It also has a pic-in-pic feature so I can watch my show and google at the same time. I also have a chat forum I am fond of and go there and post. Don't forget Youtube. This is a prime feature of this also. I store my family videos on youtube so now I can view all the family videos in the comfort of my bedroom. I love the optical thumb mouse thing. It is just cool! So easy to use.
My kids also love this unit. While one is on the laptop, the other can still be on the internet if they want to be. My kids are 7 and almost 9. My daugther loves to go to Barbie.com and play the games online there. She wants to go InnerStarU.com but it says that it 'cannot support it'. My son likes to Lego Star Wars and play games there. But he wants to go to some Clone wars thing and it says the same thing, 'cannot support'. Forunately for me I did not buy this unit for them to play video games in MY room. This unit is not really a 'gaming' type of unit. I do not think this is a con. Some people might. Not me.
Okay, so the cons for this unit. I can't seem to figure out if I can 'print' to our wireless printer, but it looks like we may not be able to. I say this because I was googling a recipe the other day and wanted to print it out and nothing happened. Not a big deal, but it would be nice. Another con is that the menus are a bit different than what I am familiar with. It will take some time getting used to.
The biggest CON I can see right now is this: I can't wait to get sick and stay in bed!
