Apple TV has been redesigned to be small in size but big on entertainment. Rent from the largest selection of HD movies — many available the same day they come out on DVD. Watch Netflix titles instantly. Rent TV shows, commercial free in HD. And stream photos and music from your computer to your widescreen TV. The sleek new Apple TV has been completely retuned for your entertainment. It’s 80 percent smaller than the previous generation — even with a built-in power supply, which makes it perfect for sitting neatly on a widescreen TV stand or squeezing into a crowded media cabinet. Not only does the new Apple TV have an amazingly small footprint, it’s also incredibly energy efficient. It stays cool without a fan, so it’s never noisy. And when it’s not filling your living room with drama, romance, and comedy, it uses less power than a night-light. Setting up Apple TV is about as simple as it gets. Just plug the power cord into the wall and connect Apple TV to your widescreen TV using an HDMI cable (sold separately). Since everything streams wirelessly to Apple TV, that’s all you need. Well, that and a comfy couch.

Very enjoyable 6/14/2012
ATV was very easy to set up and start using. Netflix works wonderful, no lag or loading. Easy to connect to the iMac and use airplay with my iPhone. The remote is OK, works well but it is a pain to enter email and password with the remote, use the remote app for iPhone or iPad.
Great product 5/17/2012
The UI is slick, the setup was somewhat easy (but would have been easier with keyboard support) and the ability to control music from my laptop and desktop is fantastic (through iTunes via the currently limited "airplay" functionality).
apple for tv 11/21/2011
Its a really small box that bridges the computer to the tv. It has netflix and all your Itunes media that your would expect. The Airplay is a cool feature that makes it really handy if you have ios devices like a Ipad.... it can play what your playing on it and then send it to your apple tv so you can see it on the big screen. The airplay isn't supported by all apps. The only thing that is missing is possibly a large hard drive and more of a live tv functionality that would be nice.
K.I.S.S. tech 11/14/2011
Positives: It's small, sophisticated exterior and UI, easy to setup and use. Very well integrated with other Apple products. Stream media from a server on a 5.8GHz wifi network without problems. Easy to mirror your iPad or iPhone to the TV though this device.
Negatives: No 1080p resolution, really focused on Apple customers.
Should you get it? Definitely, if your into Apple products.

AppleTV Rocks 6/1/2011
What can I say but buy the new version of the AppleTV or you'll be missing out on an amazing and convenient little device! I bought two - one for my bedroom and one for the family room! It's incredibly convenient to be able to watch YouTube, Netflix, as well as everything in my iTunes library. A+ for this device!!!
