  • Pros: Movies on-demand, made easy, Beautifully designed interface
  • Cons: No TV show rentals in Australia (yet), Some iTunes rentals more expensive via Apple TV, Infrared interference with Apple computers

  • Cons: Well built, Great interface

Festplatten-Streamer mit dem Apfel-Logo: Apple TV

13 June 2007
  • Summary: Der Festplatten-Streamer Apple TV ist angenehm einfach konzipiert und bietet eine ansprechende Benutzeroberfläche. Wenn Apple nun noch ein Software-Update für mehr Videoformate herausgibt und auch HD-Inhalte auf Itunes anbietet, wird das Produkt zu einem echten Knüller.
  • Pros: ansprechende Bedienoberfläche, einfache Einrichtung, elegantes Design
  • Cons: unterstützt nur wenige Videoformate, fehlende Inhalte zum Kauf auf Itunes, kein Surround-Sound
