Great idea but poor execution

Summary: I was excited to get an apple TV so that I wouldn't have to use the PS3 to watch netflix. I was annoyed by the PS3 because of how annoying it is to enter characters using the controller. The Apple TV allows users to use an iphone/ipod/ipad to control the device.
Summary: Returned. This New Apple TV does not like NetFlix! It constantly pauses to load video and audio it really becomes irritating. Fortunately, I also have the Panasonic Blue Ray DVD Player with Netflix streaming and performs much better with little or no pauses, wired or wireless.
Netflix Streaming Problems and No Amazon Video On Demand

Summary: As other reviews have stated the Apple TV was very easy to install. If you have a password protected wireless network, you have to be patient while you key in the 26 character password using the Apple TV remote.
Summary: First off I should say I am a big fan of Apple and I have owned and used a great number of Apple products over the years. This is why I feel so bad about sending this Apple TV unit back. It just isn't ready for prime time yet.
Summary: Beautiful design but I understand why this is still a hobby for Steve Jobs. If you live in UK then forget it unless you are on fibre. It takes 2-3 hrs to downloand an HD movie and it's annoying it does not let you start watching it while it's downloading the rest.
Summary: If you're thinking of buying Apple TV and live in the UK, it's good for three things; Listening to your music through your stereo (if it's connected to the TV), YouTube and boring your friends with your holiday snaps.
Summary: Yes, Apple TV looks cooler than an ice cube and does do a lot of things very well, BUT let us remind ourselves what the sales blurb actually says it is supposed to do: "HD Films. Instant film rentals--It puts the cinema in home cinema...
Summary: Apple TV 2 is like a beautiful skinny mail order bride that brings you nothing but woe. She bleeds you dry, she embarrasses you in front of your friends, but you still can't bring yourself to kick her out because of the one thing she does pretty well.
Summary: This is a lovely piece of kit and when you used it in the US the content and price can make this the heart of your entertainment system. The problem's start to mount, however, the moment you use in the UK.
