Poor Outer Packaging

Summary: The outer box protecting the Apple TV was barely holding together when I received it. The Apple TV was falling out. Someone (from the Post Office) tried over-taping it, but that was a shoddy job and the tape was all twisted and falling off. Quite a bizarre package.
Summary: I brought the apple tv to help mirror my yoga and meditation apps to the tv. It works well. I've just detest the remote, it takes so long to type. But overall, it has many smart tv shows and it is great.
Summary: I'm not an Apple fan and have never bought an Apple product for myself until now. It's because I had to in order to view the SAG Awards-nominated films. They're all on iTunes and none of the other lesser-priced streaming systems has iTunes. So far, Apple TV has been relatively easy to use.
Summary: The product works great. The only issue is that you need to make sure your high speed internet is sufficient to support the playing of movies, etc. If not enough, it will buffer and become pixilated.

Summary: Easy to hookup to tv, but it doesn't come with any of the necessary cables. Also, easy to program to tv however, getting it to work with an ipad, iphone or ipod with the instructions included is mediocre. View videos on You Tube & it makes it much simpler. Other than that, it works great.
Summary: We bought this so that we could show videos of the grandchildren on our TV that we took with our Canon recorder. Even after nearly an hour on the phone with Apple, we were not able to get it to play more than clips of the video we recorded. Each clip had to be individually started.
Summary: Once I learn how to use the Apple TV I purchased, I know I will love it. I purchased it because I wanted to get a yearly membership to redbox instant. I was told the only way I could use it was to get an Apple TV to hook up to my tv.
Summary: I have an iPad and iPhone and wanted a way to stream from them to the tv as well as mirror to view pictures, etc. What I didn't know and don't care for is the limits apple has put on what you can stream (certain channels I can watch through the app on my ipad but not stream or mirror play through...
