random disconnects are the bane of appleTV users existence
21 August 2015
Summary: This was the worst apple product I've ever purchased. The only reason I bought was for mirroring my ipad. Well, when it works (which is like 20% of the time) it often has resolution problems and the motion gets unbearably choppy. It will also randomly disconnect for no reason.
Excerpt: Used the apple TV 2 times and then it would not work properly. Turned it on and it would not follow any commands and the only way it would turn off was to unplug it. Called Apple and was told it needed to be reset.
Summary: When I read the description of the Apple TV no where did it say that it doesn't stream Amazon. Every smart TV I have streams Amazon. Every Blue Ray player I have streams Amazon. I bought this to take with me when I go to my daughter's house so that I can watch Amazon Prime movies at night.
Excerpt: I used the Apple TV only 2 times before I had a problem. According to Apple service the unit needed to be reset. So I would have drive 80 mile round trip to an Apple store or go out and buy a micro USB cable and connect it to the internet to correct the problem. Needless to say I am returning it.
Cons: Complicated Controls, Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Lack Of Basic Info
Summary: I bought this item less than a year ago and at least once a month, but more than likely several times a week, the box would lose internet access while ALL OF MY OTHER NON APPLE DEVICES were fine. Now apple wants to charge me $30 just to talk to me about the issue......I should have bought a roku :(
