Great for Apple people

I wanted a way to watch my iPad on a bigger screen. I was going to buy the hdmi adapter but for the few dollars more bought the Apple tv3 instead. Both the mirroring and AirPlay work great. Streaming from a website on my iPad via AirPlay to my monitor works perfectly. Although I don't think Apple will support this unit any longer in favour of the Apple tv4 this unit is all most people will need. It has the big three apps Netflix,Shomi and Cravetv built in along with twenty or more others. If you're an Apple person this is the one to get.

APPLE TV

I wish I bought the ROKU I tried out a ROKU after I Bought APPLE TV . What a mistake the Roku has so much more to watch . The APPLE TV is not a good buy if you are looking for variety and choice in streaming TV . The APPLE is Expensive like all Apple products but does not deliver good value.

handy device

I bought this so I could go to websites where they have educational videos to watch. Apple TV makes the videos full screen videos, which is great! Found out that if you leave your iphone or ipad on auto lock setting, the video stops after a short time. If you set the auto lock feature to 'never', then the video is uninterrupted. I also enjoy seeing iphone photos on the TV screen. Pleased with the purchase.

Apple TV Plex connection

Very easy to connect with iTunes, but VERY difficult to connect with my home computers Plex files. I guess apple wants to keep you as a captive audience by not allowing you to do your own thing without having a computer degree.

Apple tv 3 obsolete

Apple tv dont work ith apple music :-( a simple firmware could fix that but they prfer selling you a new apple tv 4.... also bluetooth headset that works great with my iphone 5s are useless with apple tv 3 but will be fine with apple tv 4.... to listen to apple music i have to use airplay... it is a decent product for 90$ but most of the stuff is integrated in new tv... apple are shooting themselves in the foot with all this proprietary stuff ans non compatible issues. I got 2 ipods but nope they wont work with offline music from apple music... nope you need at least an iphone 5s or ipod touch... right everybody likes to buy new stuff for nothing. Sd to say but as much as i love my iphone 5s, i'll go back to android, spotify and more evolved and much cheaper streaming box .....

Loved it so much, I bought 2 more

I've had my 3rd gen Apple TV since July 2015 and love it so much that I bought 2 more for Christmas gifts. It's easy to set up, compact, and I love that I can have the premiums for any streaming subscriptions deducted from my iTunes account. I would've upgraded to the 4th gen, but I read that it doesn't have digital optical and I'm not willing to make that sacrifice.

Great for the price

Got it for a month and it does what is advertised. I use it mainly for streaming music, pictures and video from my PC and other iOS devices. Picture and sound quality is great. Several annoyances: iTune has to be restarted on my PC whenever I turn on the Apple TV box, otherwise it becomes unresponsive. It won't play purchased music or Apple Music directly: I must play them through other iOS devices or through iTune (with Air Play).

Really smooth and so easy to set up

I'm a big apple fan so this is definetly worth it for me as I have both an iPad and iPhone . Netflix works really good only has blurred up one time . The device is also pretty fast and smooth running . My only complaint is the selection of channels or apps . Hopefully there will be a big update at the September Apple event . Overall though pretty good and cheaper than most streaming boxes

Amazing!

Just bought our first Apple TV last week and we love it! Easily streams all of our shows from our tv apps on our iPad in amazing HD. Love how all of our iTunes purchases are available to view/listen to right from it. Also the built in Internet Radio app was a nice surprise. Listen to it all the time now while cleaning. With cable/satellite prices being so high this is a great way to still enjoy watching all of your favourite shows and more!!

Restart quite frequently

I bought this to stream movies from an app...it works but I have to restart both apple tv and the device I'm streaming off of each time I want to watch something....like if it's been a few hours or the next day. It is better than the crappy digital AV HDMI cord you plug into the device though!

It's nothig special

The product is great! The quality is amazing and I love the AirPlay. It's very simple to use and it is accessible to all ages. It's has a variety of movies, music, trailers and much more! I would recommend this product. If you are willing to pay for the movies, music, etc... Then this product is for you. If you want free movies, music, etc... Then you might as well stick with android TV. Currently there is no jailbreak so you cannot get the apps products for free. I will keep it just in case the jailbreak comes out. THE PRODUCT IS GREAT QUALITY AND LOOKS LIKE IT WILL LAST A LONG TIME.

I Love This Thing!

I just got my apple tv and what a pleasure it is to use it. My tv and blue ray were the last things to go wireless in my house and I am glad I did it. Set up was incredibly easy and so is the operation of it. I really like the way it streams from my lap top and plays everything from Netflix to my own pictures etc. I will also be able to use it for presentations which is a cool thing.

Fantastic

A breeze to set up. Now I no longer have to sit in front of my iMac to watch movies. I can stream my movies from my iMac, as well as videos and photos from my iPad and iPhone right to my TV. Lots of other channels available too.

Don't Bother

I've had this product for over a couple of years. It is the only Apple product I own besides an ipod, so I can't speak for users who stream from a Mac. I stream all my own movies through iTunes but from a Windows 7 OS. Most times I want to watch something that is streamed from my PC I'll have to restart iTunes. If this doesn't work I reset my wifi and restart the Apple TV. Usually this will work, but when it doesn't I go through the entire process again. 3 months ago, I purchased a Roku 3. Wow! What a different experience. It has it's faults also, but I have never had to restart anything to get it working - basically just move my mouse so my PC is out of screensaver mode and I'm good to go. I moved the Apple TV to a lesser used TV. Now every time I have to use it, I brace myself for about 15 minutes of [messing] around before we can watch anything. I've decided to sell it [...] and buy another Roku. No more Apple products for me. I would have given it 0 out of 5 but it works fine with Netflix and movie rentals through Apple. It's just streaming through the PC that it fails miserably with.

Apple TV Setup Review

[...] Setup was very easy and only took a few minutes. I went with just a HDMI cable and now my wife can watch all her Downton Abbey shows that she missed. Great variety of options for movies etc other than just ITunes. Instructions with kit are well explained and anyone can set this up if I can, good purchase for sure. Cables with kit are just the right size and not excessively long or difficult to work with. [...]

Great if using an Ethernet cable

I have 3 Apple TVs in my house and have them all wired with Ethernet Cable. I use a combination of softwares to make digital copies of DVDs and BLURAYs that I own to store them on external hard drives. I now have over 1500 home made titles stored, movies or tv shows available at my finger tips. I really like the fact that my children can't scratch a disk or loose it. I also like the fact that all my kid's movies are always available. I did find that without the Ethernet cable connection, the product had connectivity issues but with Enternet cables, no issues. I made my own cloud! This was the key component.

Excellent Unit

Have had the Apple TV for about a year now and have nothing but great things to say about it. The recent software updates allows for continuous viewing of Netflix which was one of my biggest complaints about the earlier versions. Easy to use interface and a fast streaming connection allows for HD videos to be played which is nice, but only necessary of you are running a true HD tv. If you're an Apple fan, I don't know what would force you not to get this item, if you're not an Apple fan, you're missing out, this device brings so much to your finger tips.

Highly unreliable

I've had one of these for over a year. At first, it worked great. Now, however, I can tell it to play an HD movie or TV episode and the thing will take 15 minutes before it does anything...if it does anything at all. Waste of money.

Not what I thought

I bought this to mirror shows from my ipad, specifically the TMN GO app, however it turns out that some apps (specifically this one) do not allow mirroring. The only other use for the Apple TV is to watch movies and other shows over the internet, which I can already do with my PS3

Great for those in the APPLE Ecosystem

If you have Apple products already like an iPad, iPhone or an iMac and get your movies, music, television shows, and other products from iTunes, this product works great. I recently bought a new APPLE TV to replace an old 2nd generation APPLE TV and I love it, I would never go to a different unit. The only downside really is that these unlike other units like a Roku don't have an APPS store, but thats not a large deterrent for this unit.

waste of money

I am an dedicated Apple user for number of years, but...I am starting to change my opinion. I purchased Apple TV to have remote connection to laptop. It loses connection approx. every 30 minutes. If you like to keep get interrupted - it's OK, othervise waste of money. Use cable instead.

Good little gadget

Bought it as a precursor to cutting the cable. Works great to stream Netflix to TV. Great companion for the iPad. Not sure how useful all of the pre-loaded stuff is, but with the mirroring option, whatever you have on your iPad, you can also see on the screen. Very easy to set-up. Assuming your home set-up isn't too complicated, it's about as plug-and-play as it gets. Good investment for the price.

Not worth it

Air play is the only good function. Everything else is a crappier version of the website version. YouTube on Apple TV for example only has a fraction of what YouTube has on their website. I should have just bought a cheap refurbished computer for media instead.
