Not so pleased

James Davis, MacMall
4 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Pros: 1 - The AppleTV was very easy to setup. Everything works as designed. Cons: 1 - The AppleTV remote activates any MAC computer in the room. The MAC has to be turned off when watching AppleTV. Would like to see: 1 – Internet access to other video sites such as HULU

Apple TV

David Harrison, MacMall

  • Conclusion: Apple TV works very well with Netflix if you have a fast internet connection (3 Mbps download speed or faster). If you have a 1.5 Mbps or slower, some shows from Netflix will play, but they might have a lot of pauses. HD movies and shows are too much memory for such a slow connection.

Impressive device for $99

Keith, Amazon
16 November 2010
  • Summary: Great stuff! We have a fiber broadband connection so my speed may be atypical, but the streaming - especially Netflix - is lightning fast. The interface is great with an iPad/iPhone controlling it. Initial setup was cumbersome until I got the iPad hooked up.

Using iTunes and iPods daily, I was curious to see how Apple TV would integrate into iTunes in addition to being able to add additional Netflix streaming capability to my house--which was my main objective in getting...

Consider this product instead of an Ipod dock for your receiver

NJ Dog, Amazon
20 October 2010
  • Summary: If your like me and have a home theater receiver and don't want to shell out $100 - $200 for an IPod dock then consider this product as a better alternative. First of all it's either the same price or cheaper than a dock and secondly it's not limited to just playing songs on your IPod.

a great box for getting media from point A, B and C to your TV

S. Miller, Amazon
2 October 2010
  • Summary: I was looking forward to this product since it was announced early last month. I'm glad I pulled the trigger and bought it when it became available. For $99 it provides most of the functionality I was paying microsoft $50 a year for.

Only Worth THe Money If You Are Prepared to Truly Use It

sghawken, Ciao
9 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Apple TV is on the surface nothing different from what we already have available to every household with todays modern technology, so with a price-tag of between £79-£99 you do have to ask whether Apple TV is worth the investment.
  • Pros: Deliver any content via wifi to your television
  • Cons: If you do not use it to it's full potential it's a terrible waste .

Bye-Bye DVDs...

M. Harrison "Hamish", Amazon
9 March 2012
  • Summary: I'm not sure why it took me so long to make the relatively modest outlay required to have the grandly titled Apple TV. After all I have Apple's i-justabouteverything else. My delay was all the more dim since it is strongly rumoured that Apple is about to do for television what it did for the...

MC's Apple TV Review

City Dweller, Amazon
4 December 2011
  • Summary: Love the sleekness and usual thought-through design of this device. Packaging again is impressive in it's minimalistic simplicity. The one thing I would have liked to see on the physical box, would be some clever way to wall-mount this.
