Price: $299.99–$399.99

Google TV is perhaps the most promising of the bunch when it comes to offering a full-featured, fun, and futuristic replacement for your cable box. It attempts to leverage the full power of the Web, has handy Google navigation tools, and starting this summer will get a new Android Honeycomb 3.1 OS with access to the Android app universe. You can stream the big three: Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon Instant Video, but you can also surf the Web as normal, viewing content on almost any site your heart desires. Like the other options listed here, the major television networks have blocked all official avenues for viewing their content online.

Google TV also offers a ton of other cool features, like watching shows in a picture-in-picture frame while you surf the web, using your cell phone as a remote control, creating playlists and more. It comes in two set-top models, the Logitech Revue for $299 and the Sony Internet TV Blu-Ray Player (depicted above) for $399.
