Good, innovative product, but know what you want first

  • Summary: I purchased the Apple TV, and for the most part it has lived up to my expectations. It was very easy to set up, the interface is very simple and user friendly, and I have had no problems with use on my Wireless N network. That being said, I have two complaints. The first is when viewing photos you cannot sort through thumbnail pictures. So if in a folder you have 100 photots and want to see photo 98, you need to scan through the first 97 to get to.

  • Summary: How on earth can this be given 4 stars and the Tivo box 3.5 stars? Some of these reviews boggle me, has a comparison with anything else on offer even been made? The fact that it doesnt support non-Apple formats is a real killer. Connecticity and file support is key with these kind of products but once again Apple insists on you only using what it creates.
  • Pros: Simple
  • Cons: Doesnt offer a lot

Must do better....

S. McDonald, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the idea of this product, but there are far better options for me personally. For audio; I have an xbox 360 which i can plug my ipod into. This is hooked up to my surround sound system so i can get all my music with a fully functioning HUD and remote and excellent quality. I also dont have to have my desktop switched on (a real bug bear with these products).

video ipod plugged into telly does same job

Mr. S. Black, Amazon

  • Summary: If you want to spend all your money on itunes then this is what to get. I take it most people have an ipod or use itunes as your music/video software. This just seems to be a wi-fi ipod with extra connections I bought myself a video cable to plug my video ipod into my tv on the front connections to watch my stuff on my normal widescreen telly. Since i only watch podcasts or youtube clips or self encoded films the quality isn't super anyway. Fine for watching comfortably.

If only...

I. BROWN, Amazon

  • Summary: A very nice piece of kit but with a serious design floor, with digital television coming to the UK within the next year Apple have missed an important opportunity because of the lack of integrated Digital Free View within the components of the 'apple tv'. With DVB included this could have been a classic piece of kit for the 21st century home.

confused

Modem, Amazon

  • Summary: Looks good, but will it allow me to watch/listen to all the MPEGs and MP3s on my networked PCs? I dont't use iTunes. This appears to be the elephant in the room issue for this product, which Apple are ignoring. Can Apple answer the question that, frankly, should have already been addressed in their glossy materials? The focus on iTunes is too great IMO if this product is to succeed large-scale.

  • Excerpt: не является полным медиаплеером в широком смысле, т.к. не может сам брать файлы для проигрывания из домашней сети, или через USB порт, хотя цена - соответствует как раз такой функции плеера. Т.о. эта игрушка предназначена для покупки фильмов с iTunsa, что можно сделать и с компа, а проиграть по HDMI (250р.) - кабелю с него же, а потому красная цена ему 2000р. При проигрывании с компа через него часто рвет картинку даже при высокой скорости передачи через роутер.
  • Pros: компактность,
  • Cons: высокая цена при малой функциональности

  • Excerpt: Покупал для просмотра медиа-контента с MAC из iTunes. Со своими функциями справляется крайне плохо, связь между устройствами по WI-FI ужасно медленная, подвисания при просмотре. Короче выкинутые деньги. Пока дождешься загрузки фильма можно десять раз с флешкой управится. Лучше взять обычный FULL HD плеер.
  • Pros: Коробочка упаковки красивая :))))
  • Cons: Тормознутое устройство.
