It's everything Apple TV should have been when it launched, complete with audio and video podcasts, Flickr and .Mac integration and—most importantly—movie rentals without a computer.

When you've got $100 in your pocket and a burning desire for video and audio options you just can't get from your cable station, is the Apple TV the obvious choice? Well, Roku provides more free stuff if you dig around, and for an extra couple of hundred dollars, you can get almost a full...

The Apple TV is capable within the narrow goals Apple has established for it. In fact, it does what Apple promises very well. But is that enough?

Network Multimedia player with Wireless 802.11n support and embedded hard-drive. Easy to use with sophisticated interface. But limited codec support. But you can hack it to expand capabilities (http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30103...

If it was 2005, I'd rave, but it's 2009 and I've had one for two years. No apps, no removable media (which some people want but I'm ambivalent to) no media server utilities, you can't add storage, etc. What I want is the current interface in a box that is a media server...

It was great for a replacement for a DVD player. It had onboard storage and didn't need a computer to buy items. If it had netflix it would have been perfect.

This is a review of the new Apple TV. I personally own the old HDD based model, but I have plenty of experience with the new "hockey puck" model. This is a great little media streaming device at $99. I am holding out hope Apple gets an app store on this thing soon because that's when it'll...

Won this at a xmas raffle, didn't really use it at first, but now it's a big part of my home setup. Great for streaming netcasts or internet radio. Nice that you can sync movies to the HD or stream content from your entire collection.

At its simplest, you could say that Apple TV is like an iPod that you connect to your home theater. You can take anything in your iTunes library and experience it in the living room, the bedroom, kitchen, or anywhere else you have an HDTV. It isn't without its faults but it gets the job done...

Just to be clear from the onset, I'm not an Apple fanboy. In fact, before I purchased the Apple TV, I built my own media center PC - awesome hardware, sweet case that looked good in an entertainment system, multiple TV tuners (1 SD, 2 HD), etc. It was more fun to build than to use with XP...

Ahead of it's time but a bit too temperamental and lacking support for what the iTunes store would become. Seeds of greatness hampered by a PC-centric design.
