    I was thinking of purchasing a google tv box. I notice the sony has some of the highest reviews on Amazon but I was thinking Asus has a track record of faster updates. Granted I have not been impressed with Asus's android products in general.

    Also I already have a Nexus 10 with hdmi hookup. What would be the biggest benefits of a dedicated Google TV?

    I ended up getting the Sony. It definitely has some nice features over just using an android tablet. The live TV guide is really nice and makes it much easier to find shows than using the more expensive u-verse guide. The only thing I don't like is that I couldn't just play a video from the shared folder on my windows 8 desktop like I can with my tablet. The only option was to use the es media player after I installed es-file explorer and it didn't work so great. Instead I had to load plex on my desktop which is working well now.

    I just stepped up to the Sony NSG-GS7 from a Roku 2 XS... Love the difference.

    I've been depending on Plex for a year now and it is a great way to extend the streaming content.

    Don't buy one - You will regret it. I did, and I do. The Asus Cube is a turkey. It will NEVER be 'upgraded' to Jellybean.

    I'm liking my Sony Google TV a lot. Although it makes me watch more TV

    Google TV with TiVo connected to the HDMI input is definitely the centerpiece of my solution for cutting the cord. I am finding enough to watch that I just toss the DirecTV, Comcast, and U-verse promotions I receive in the mail directly into the recycle bin without opening them. The Sony NSZ-GT1 and Sony NSZ-GS7 both see a lot of use in our household.

    We use our Sony all the time. It has its issues, but 95% of the time is problem free.
