    Hello everyone. I am new the forums, but not new to Google and Android. I just purchased an NSZ-GT1 from Best Buy as an open box item. They had it marked as $69.99 and i talked them down to $49.99 because it has no ac adapter.

    1. Is this a good deal (they had a couple more that I could hook up in the bedroom and son's room)?

    2. Where can I find a replacement power adaptor? 19.5V seems to be an odd size.

    Thank you in advance for any help that you have top offer!

    Sure, if you can find the missing replacement parts.

    I'd check here, "Sony Parts and Accessory Request"

    I have sent an email to the Parts and Accessory Request site. Is it difficult to find replacement parts for the Google TV boxes?

    I would expect that it depends on the manufacturer.

    Sony responded with a price of $139.99 for the AC adapter. I don't think so. Looks like I will be taking it back to Best Buy over lunch break. If they charge $159.99 for a new setup and the replacement cost of the AC adapter is $139.99 that means I the actual box is only worth about $20 to Sony. You would think that they would be a little more customer friendly with the prices, that is just plain and simple gouging!

    Yikes! That's ridiculous. I don't understand why companies would gouge customers on replacement parts. That's horrible customer service.

    Sony can do that since all of their products are proprietary.

    Good news is that I went over to the Best Buy in the town that I work (different than where purchased), returned the box. I went back to their electronics section and they have three "Open Box" Google Internet boxes. I asked the clerk if they were returned with the AC adapters. He checked behind the counter and sure enough, there was one there. I asked if I could have that one and "un-return" the box that I just returned and he was good with it. So now I have a AC adapter and a Google box with remote all for $50. Now time to go home after work and hook it up to my Dish Network setup and see if it works.

    Excellent, that's pretty resourceful. Now that's a good deal!

    If he would have had a second cable, I would have offered to buy another unit and sell it for $50 and the cost ofr shipping. Or maybe I should just buy a second unit incase I decide to root this one and brick it.
