Not so pleased

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
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.
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.
Bought It For Netflix But After Getting It, Use It More For iTunes

Summary: I'm a PC person but when it comes to MP3 players Apple is the standard--period. 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

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

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
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 .
Excerpt: Wow is my only true reaction, as I have come over to Apple my wishes as to what I can do on my computers have one by one come true, Apple TV has completed my wish list, I have always wanted to share my computer media with my entertainment system, but using a windows PC I never achieved it, now I...
Pros: Easy to set up, Plays content from your PC, can be used to play Netflix
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...
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.
