Summary: The Apple tv with the latest update 4.4.2 completely integrates ipad 2, itunes store, netflix streaming and your own media on your computer. Here is a list of items you can do. 1. Watch netflix streaming in a fast, easy to use interface that has an amazing style only apple could do.
Summary: I can heartily recommend the Apple TV. It is easy to set up. It connects easily to wifi. It is small. It is silent (no fan). It does not have a wall wart. It has a status light, but it's relatively unobtrusive.
Conclusion: At the end of my day, it's amazing to be able to sit down, relax, and watch a movie on Netflix, stream some video from my iPad or iPhone, or just play around on Youtube, all on my TV screen. Apple TV is a simple little box that makes it possible. I love it.
Conclusion: Video streaming and wireless connections are the future for home theater. Outstanding Netflix interface and access to iTune music and iPhoto libraries. Streaming lag times are impressively short. Could iTunes rental selections and prices be better? Yes, but that will improve.
Conclusion: My only gripe is that I can't figure out a way to make my Apple TV wake my computer when I want to what something. Other than that, setup was a breeze, the picture quality is awesome even on videos I have ripped at lower quality settings.
Summary: I'm an owner of 2 original Apple TV's. I hacked both of those to put XBMC ([...]) on them. XBMC lets you stream any video file imaginable to your TV directly from a fileserver. You don't have to have a computer running iTunes to do so. The new Apple TV 2 can be jailbroken with greenpois0n ([...]).
