Summary: It is the perfect technology that compliments my high definition tv and both my itunes (pc and mac) and my ipad. It is amazing to be able to play a board game on my ipad with 3 other people and we can all stare at the tv when its not our turn. Watching movies from itunes is awesome as well. The mirroring ability alone makes this a great electronic device.
Summary: another great example of a simple and elegant design that meets the needs of the customer.. absolutely love apple tv - stream music from iphones that are on your wifi, watch pictures from you mac etc wirelessly...
Fantastic option for getting i-tunes and Netflix on your HDTV in 720p

Summary: This simple device, that's easy to connect to your TV and sound system and easy to operate, gives you access to tons of TV and movie viewing options from i-tunes, Netflix, and a number of other services. It's easy to operate, and can connect to your internet connection either with your wifi or with a standard ethernet cable. Most i-tunes programming is available in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and 720p High Definition.
Summary: this is one of the best pieces of technology I've purchased in the last decade. I spent alot of time getting my movies into my itunes libary, but now that I have, this is so great. maybe its my tv, but even SD content looks good and so does the HD content. I screwed around trying to use the xbox 360 as a media box and that whole process was a huge FAIL. itunes, matched with the appletv, with airplay, and airplay mirroring is some sweet technology that just works..
Summary: i have an internet-connected blu-ray player, a roku box, and this apple tv. the apple tv is by far my favorite device of the three i own. i use it for netflix mostly, but i can also stream music from my iphone to the tv, which is awesome. the apple tv is the fastest too, despite being the furthest away from the wifi connection. the roku is right next to the wifi box and it's not as fast as the apple tv. another great product by apple!
why is it so much??? I would pay $1000 for this device it a bargain

Summary: I am so glad most don't know the power of this little hockey puck. I can say I'm one that paid 230 for a new one and I am extremely happy with my purchase and I back to pick up another one. also, if you know what this box can do there's no comparison between this and roku.
Summary: excellent product. my housband install it by itself and it works perfectly. thanks to my husband that looked up online how to connect it to the pioneer amplyfier and home theatre, now we can controll all the house music system via wi fy, from my ipad or iphone.
Summary: Consumer technology: for the average consumer there are two meaningful categories - 1) it works out of the box or 2) it doesn't. When you are looking for a device that connects to your network (wireless and wired), accesses content not only from the internet but from the computers in your home as well, and streams movies, videos, images and other content to whatever you are using as a display - Nothing will work right out of the box.
