The LG G2 with Google TV Video Transcript
Hi. I'm (Tipan Aubrey?) from CNET.com and this is a review of the LG G2 Google TV. It's been a tough year for the Google TV what with Budget Tech blaming Google for losing a lot of money. And the underwhelming (Honey Comb?) update. But that's not stopping companies forging ahead with new releases. The OGG 2 Series is a 2nd television to feature Google TV after last years Sony. And it's certainly looks futuristic with it's frost aluminum bezel and unique stand. The user interface is also a little different from standard with a combination of both LG's and Google Smart TV layout. While the looks pretty...it's a shame the menu system is tough to use. If you want to do anything other than customize the shortcuts. The best thing about this product though is the Hybrid Magic Motion Remote with it's integrated keyboard. It's the Swiss Army Knife of control devices and a million times more easy to use since Samsung Smart interaction system with it's waving about and shouting. Do that and thing in a (Bob's?) were all well and good. But what about the picture quality?. Well, I just say that that's the biggest disappointment. The TV has really shallow black levels which makes images indistinct and colors ain't as vibrant as it's competitors. While 3D images are much more comfortable to watch and even last years LG Passive TV's. It's the lack of Black that destroy the illusion. Our faxes is also a problem with an oil slick appearance on dark section of the picture. Well, that might look pretty. The OG Google TV is hobbled by the Android Interface and just two expensive at 1,600 for the 47 inch and 2,100 for the 55 inch. Do yourself a favor and buy the Panasonic ST50 instead. This is been (Tipan Aubrey?) with the review of the LG Google TV.
Samsung's best LED TV in recent memory, the high-end UNF8000 not only blends stunning design with best-in-class features, it also manages to deliver excellent picture quality.
The Sony NSZ-GT1 combines Google TV and Blu-ray in a single box, but Sony's frustrating controller, the high price, and Google TV's content issues make it a tough sell.
Sony's high-end KDL-XBR9 series of LCD TV offers a bundle of extras and solid picture quality, but the price will turn off most buyers.
While not quite the best in its class, the Samsung PNE550 plasma still merits a look with its very good picture quality, sophisticated Smart TV platform, and attractive price.
Easily the most capable Internet-connected TV ever made, Sony's NSX-GT1 series calls for a tech-savvy buyer who can live with Google TV's growing pains, a touchy remote and so-so picture quality.
The good-looking Sony W802 television offers decent image quality for an LED but its color palette and high price pale in comparison to cheaper plasmas like the Panasonic ST60
