Summary: Easy to setup and configure. We use it mainly to watch HBOGO and Netflix. It doesn't have the buffering problems that watching Netflix on our Samsung Blu-Ray has. My son uses the built-in WWE Network app. He also uses AirPlay to show off his iPad games on the TV.
Pros: Easy of setup and use. Smooth video and great sound. AirPlay.
Cons: Can't add additional apps. You need to run some apps off of your iPad or iPhone.
Summary: Makes for a great door stop. After a few months of working, it was showing a picture indicating a cable connection to a computer. Not knowing what this meant had to go on line to look it up. Found out this means connect to iTunes to restore.
Summary: This is my second Apple TV box. What I like is that I can stream identical content to both at the same time, so a group of people can be in the living room and another in the media room watching the same movie. The new $69 price point is great.
Summary: I got this for the sole purpose of Apple Airplay. I unboxed this unit and was streaming iTunes music from my PC to my stereo receiver (connected with optical audio cable) within 10 minutes. For me, this feature alone was worth the money.
