A Joke

Mark Amershek, Amazon
6 December 2013
  • Summary: This must be some kind of joke! I just bought an Apple TV and a HDMI cord at an Apple store yesterday for a total of $126. Amazon should kill this ad and protect it's customers. Buyer beware!

Seems like a very bad deal. I won't buy it.

Andrew, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: I agree with the other reviewers. I have not bought this product, but it is clear that it is overpriced for what an Apple TV should be. For reference: [...] marked as $99. It should be that price or less on Amazon (I've seen $92.99 Apple MD199LL A TV Please consider *very* carefully before buying this.

Returned

Hans, ABT Electronics
30 May 2013
  • Summary: The Apple TV seems to be just a vehicle for selling content. They should give them away. You can get much more control, freedom, and content by connecting a laptop via HDMI cable to your TV. I have a Yamaha receiver connected to my home network via a network bridge. It seems much easier to connect to the network and is far easier to use with the excellent and FREE Yamaha AV Controller app for my android phone.

GOT USED APPLE TV INSTEAD OF BRAND NEW!

KJ, Adorama
10 January 2013
  • Excerpt: I didnt expect this at all...I ordered a brand new apple tv from adorama online....however they sent me a used item which was clearly visible from the loose packaging and even the configuration settings of the previous user were present on the device. That's why I am very disappointed with this purchase. Adorama people - do look into this and would like to see a positive action.

Get a PS3 instead!

Ricardo, B&H Photo
4 July 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought this hoping to be a bridge between my computers and my TV. It does work well with pictures, and music. But for movies, it cannot even handle simple things like MPEG-2 and AC3 - in fact even the Mac computer cannot handle it, let alone the AppleTV. I am so disappointed I'm giving it away to my friends.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Remote, Interfaces Well With TV
  • Cons: Local movie stream POOR

Perhaps the most useless gadget I have ever bought!

agfarm01, CNET
27 May 2012
  • Summary: A device loaded with commercials from Apple related stores and with very little utility. My recommendation is not to buy. This is the worst Apple product I have ever bought.
  • Pros: None that I have found.
  • Cons: Should be given away as a loss leader to sell Apple i-Tune store wares and related products. If you already have a smart TV or a w-fi activated DVD there is really no great advantages to gain from this little device,\. No HMDI cable included.
