Sony's new $200 Google TV box NSZ-GS7:
Vizio's new $100 Google TV box:
Marvell Armada 1500 ARM 1.2GHz dual core chip:
I haven't seen confirmation yet that the Vizio box uses the same Marvell chip. Here is a review on the Sony box:
I am pretty sure it will be clear soon that Vizio has some cost cutting to reach that price compared to the Sony box. Some key Google TV differences between the Logitech Revue and Sony NSZ-GT1:
1. Logitech Revue doesn't handle DTS.
2. Logitech Revue doesn't handle MPEG-2.
3. Logitech Revue uses a lesser processor.
4. Logitech Revue has less RAM.
Owning both of the first generation boxes, you might feel the Sony premium was worth the price so I think the same thing needs to be done before deciding on the second generation boxes. Let's hope this product takes off, I still use Google TV often but since I already own three of them, I am sitting on the sidelines with the new version, at least for a year or so.
