Apple TV ( 2012)

CNET
17 October 2011
  • Summary: Beautifully designed and incredibly easy to use, Apple TV is a top-notch product for those who are happy to rely on iTunes and Netflix for their TV and movie content. However, it still lacks support for UK services such as BBC iPlayer, which is frustrating.
  • Pros: Compact design; 1080p resolution playback; Beautiful menu system; Netflix support.
  • Cons: Lacks key UK services like BBC iPlayer; Doesn't support non-Apple formats like Xvid and MKV video files.

Apple TV review: Simple, but limited, streaming for Apple acolytes

CNET
17 October 2011
  • Summary: While it's still a step behind the Roku 3, the Apple TV is an excellent streaming box, especially for those invested in the Apple ecosystem.
  • Pros: The Apple TV lets you stream all the video content in the iTunes Store to your HDTV, with purchases stored in the cloud. Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO Go, MLB.TV, and a handful of other online media services are available, plus music, videos, and photos can be streamed from iOS devices using AirPlay. AirPlay Mirroring lets you stream any Web video to the Apple TV, if you have a newer Mac running Mountain Lion. And the Apple TV's user interface is one of the best there is.
  • Cons: The competing Roku 3 offers more content sources (including Amazon Instant), cross-platform search, and a remote with a headphone jack. The Apple TV is less of a standout streamer box if you don't own other Apple devices.

The new Apple TV streams 1080p HD movies, TV shows and music

Good Gear Guide.au
27 January 2012
  • Summary: If you're invested in the Apple ecosystem, the Apple TV is a good product: it's the easiest way to get movies and TV shows from iTunes onto the big screen. Music is a more complex proposition, requiring iTunes Match or a networked iTunes library. Using the Apple TV is a cinch through the included remote or the iOS app, too. We don't like the high price of using the iTunes Store, and we wish an always-on Internet connection wasn't mandatory.
  • Pros: Excellent interface, Huge content library
  • Cons: High rental prices, No persistent storage

Apple TV (third gen, early 2012)

MacWorld
20 January 2012
  • Excerpt: The new model of Apple TV looks and acts exactly like the previous model. I’ve spent the last week with the new, 1080p-compatible version of the Apple TV , and I’m here to report that it’s exactly like its predecessor in all but one way.
  • Pros: Good value for money; 1080 video standout feature
  • Cons: Not much difference from the previous model; 1080 videos require fast internet connection

M3
23 August 2012
  • Summary: Test Den tredje generationen mediabrygga från Apple är här och till det yttre är den identisk med föregångaren. Är det då värt att uppgradera?
  • Pros: Airplay, Billig, Extremt kompakt, Strömsnål
  • Cons: Dåligt filstöd, Utbudet av hyr- och köpfilm, Inga appar, Omdöme, Ett givetköp för dig som använder Iphone, Ipad eller Mac med Mountain Lion, men viktigt att poängtera att som fristående mediaspelare är den väldigt begränsad.

Apple TV 2012 (3ème génération)

CNET
28 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Cette 3ème génération d'Apple TV constitue une évolution très mineure de la version dévoilée en 2010. En attendant une vraie TV Apple ?
  • Pros: Prise en charge vidéos 1080p, finition et design, ergonomie, simplicité d'installation et d'utilisation, connexion avec iPhone/iPad via AirPlay démultipliant les possibilités.
  • Cons: Usage restreint dû aux formats pris en charge, difficile à connecter à un ampli, pas de service VOD alternatif... toujours pas d'applications !

Recensione: Apple TV 3G, un buon completamento di Mac e iDevices

saggiamente.com
21 March 2012
  • Excerpt: Ebbene sì, questa recensione è fuori dai nostri standard perché ci sono molte cose che mi hanno lasciato perplesso, se non addirittura amareggiato, e dopo un rapido confronto con Maurizio ho deciso di cercare un conforto o delle smentite riguardo l'ultima "scatoletta nera" Apple. È la prima che possiedo, ma ho usato parecchie volte la seconda versione a casa di un amico, sebbene solo per una limitata serie di funzioni.
