Great Door Stop

SaiJaiJai, Crutchfield
16 April 2015
  • 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.
  • Pros: Great Door Stop
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: This product only works with 2011 or newer Macs. Incompatible with all other versions,like mine. That was not clearly stated in this ad. Only deep digging at the Apple Store garnered the critical info.
  • Pros: Unknown
  • Cons: Incompatible with my version of Mac

yet another "me too" device

nick, Crutchfield
9 May 2013
  • Summary: Apple TV is a ok choice if you are starting with nothing. ( No smart TV, No wifi Blueray player, No PS3/Xbox/etc. No a/v receiver) Chances are that you already have some device that can already do most of what apple tv does. (netflix, hulu, youtube etc.
  • Pros: apple logo on box, airplay integration.
  • Cons: another box with wires/connections that is really redundant and not needed in any decent av system

Disappointed

Slackdaddy, Amazon
21 February 2011
  • Summary: I'm a recent apple converted person (iPhone and MacBook) I decided to give the apple tv a try at a friends suggestion. I am a service member stationed in Japan so I can't access things like netflix. Further, there is compatability issue with my JVC TV in that the screen cycles on/off.

Does Not Deserve to Wear the Apple Logo

D. S. "dsinsf", Amazon
16 September 2008
  • Summary: I'm an Apple fan. I have owned two desktops, an Airport, four iPods, and and iPhone. This product is just not ready for prime time. But it makes a really nice, warm, $300 doorstop. Here's my setup, DSL line to Airport base station, over wireless, to Apple TV.

Tuned for the Test Drive, Disappoints in real life

M. Hill, Amazon
6 August 2007
  • Summary: I would like to preface my negative review by saying that I'm a die-hard apple freak and apple stockholder, so I'm not some random PC shill here to bash without reason... That being said, I could summarize my experience with AppleTV by saying: The interface is stunning, and it will impress the...

Apple Tv Review

Claire Russell, Unbeatable
3 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Having received the 160GB model of the Apple TV as a Christmas present, I have found it to be a reliable and polished experience, allowing my television to become a hub for more than just standard televised viewing or films.
  • Pros: Excellent picture and sound quality Ease of use The ability to rent and download movies directly General Apple build quality
  • Cons: Prehaps a little over-priced considering there is only a 160GB hard-drive

Awful

Ms. N. Hopkinson "natalieh36", Amazon
29 October 2008
  • Summary: I dont know how anyone can possibly say this is easy to set up. Unless they are very technical. I regard myself as reasonably ok with technology but this is just so hard to set up with your network.

And It Could Have Been A Contender

John Henry, Amazon
26 March 2007
  • Summary: Apple has done it again! They've turned up late on a scene where a handful of companies are already making decent products with their own inferior take on it but packaged in a pretty little box. Remember the original iPod's technical problems and woeful battery life?

Apple TV: Does everything apart from show TV..

J. Everall, Amazon
31 January 2007
  • Summary: For a product that promises to bring everything together on your TV, one can't help but think it a bit of an undersight not to allow you to watch TV..on your TV. This entire £200 box, for all that its worth, basically allows you to plug your iPod into your TV, so you can listen to music and watch...
