Vizio's Google TV Set-Top Runs $99, Comes with OnLive Gaming Built In
The streaming device is a full $100 cheaper than Sony's.

I am a big Google TV fan so this is good news. Of course the product actually has to be good with a processor up to the task. Hopefully the Marvell Armada 1500 is at the heart of the box. Great price if it turns out to be what I hope it will be, if not, the Sony at $100 more will be the best option, I am confident it will be excellent. We should know about the Vizio box soon enough but I am skeptical for now.

One big concern will be firmware updates, my understanding is that Vizio hasn't been particularly efficient in that regard with their Blu-ray players but I have never owned one to know first hand. Sony has done a great job with Google TV firmware for the first gen box and Logitech has done a poor job in my opinion, owning both.
