its not all that great.

Pros: With the exception of an iPad & iPod, my house is Windows. Got this to wirelessly stream iTunes content (mostly music, some video). Wireless setup (Dlink DIR-825, 802.11n, 5Ghz) was pretty seamless. Works as advertised. No surprise, you can buy/rent movies. Has screensaver when playing music. The remote is solid metal and feels good in the hand.

Cons: Yes, it does connect to Netflix, youtube, & hulu...but so does my TV and BlueRay. It does NOT connect to Pandora or TuneIn. The native (and only) "radio" app is not searchable nor does it remember previous connections; you need to scroll through the alphabetized list each time. The other content streaming is pretty niche market (nba/mlb/nhl) and limited in scope. In keeping with apple design, the remote lacks complexity; typing in a long account name or password is carpel tunnel inducing when all you have is directional dial and . I also have a Harmony universal remote that works with it but is awkward, I tend to go back to the native apple remote.

Other Thoughts: Treat this as a monotasker if you have an Apple product. If you want to connect your iTunes content to your home audio, then this is the device. For everything else, you are subject to whims Apple corporate licensing so stick with other hardware's native applications.

2nd Generation v 4th Apple TV

By Keith

Verified Buyer

Comments about Apple TV (1080p):

Outstanding quality and great value. Only one niggle - the inability to add new apps. But mirroring (in my case from the IPad) gets round the problem. Much easier to use than the 4th Generation.

I love this device so much! If you're wanting to cut the cord, this makes it super easy. When I compared other devices, this just seems to have the most to offer.

A useful product but with one caveat

By gabk

Verified Buyer

Comments about Apple TV (1080p):

Apple TV is a useful product but it is sent in an incomplete manner--one of the needed cables is not included necessitating a trip to Best Buy to purchase it. Had I known, I would have ordered it from B&H and been able to do the simple set-up with no frustration. Overall, it is easy to use and makes managing allot of sources of video easier.

Apple Equals Elegance

By Warren

Verified Buyer

Comments about Apple TV (1080p):

Dollar for dollar this is a tidy little box packed with performance. At current price it offers a nice enhancement to your music library allowing it to be streamed to your smart tv bringing sounds from your computer, iPad or iPod into the family room. It also makes streaming movies and tv shows accessible seamlessly. Once set up it is easy to use and the remote is so simple and elegant. Looked at the 4th generation but didn't find the extra functionality to be worth the extra cost.

Comments about Apple TV (1080p):

I like it for watching movies, TV shows etc.  If you just want something to connect to your TV so you can watch things you have on iTunes or even Netflix, this is perfect.  I also love being able to mirror my computer/iPad's screen onto the TV, so I can show people what I'm working on!

Added another Apple TV. This time to the newly created Man Cave with 65" TV. Looks just as good as on 40" TV; and they're both over Wi-Fi.
