    Stay Away from the Refurbished Posted by: from: on I have Apple TVs and know how to set them up and how they work. This just does not work or was not tested. Right out of the box this Apple TV thinks there is an Ethernet connection so it will not look for WiFi. Called Geek Squad and the only thing they offered is to come to my house to check it out for a low, low fee of $149.99. Seriously, Best Buy? Seriously?

    Great if you have WIFI but no Cable TV Posted by: from: on We go north on the weekends and frequently stay where there is WIFI but no cable tv. I bought this refurbished for a great discount and even threw on a $20 rewards coupon, it ended up costing me $31 - BONUS! The remote and range it receives at are great, also the cord is very thick and much nicer than I expected (typical Apple power supple cord with the figure 8 shape at insertion). Both the unit and the cord are black, they hide well visibly. The variety of things you can access was more than I expected and I ended up loving that it syncs with my Apple photo's and music. It works very much like an Iphone, in that you just hit menu (home button) to click back a step out of any program (very simple). It's small and packs well for us when we travel, although it is in the den at the moment being used by the kids. We like it!

    This was a great unit for the price Posted by: from: Kalamazoo, MI on This refurbished unit performed great. My primary use is to be able to stream from my iPhone to tv and it has worked great for that.

    Solid smart TV box, but missing some features Posted by: from: on This is a solid device. First, I didn't hesitate at all to get the Geek Squad refurb--it works great and arrived in really nice condition and it was a great price. This is the sort of device that just sits on a shelf, so I was confident I would get a good, clean used product. Second, it basically does all of the things I wanted a smart TV device to do. I wish it had an app for Amazon Prime Video (odd that there is an iOS app, but not an Apple TV app). I guess Apple wants to minimize the competition. I also wish it had more modern home theater features, specifically, I wish it supported HDMI CEC, which would allow the Apple TV to turn on the television and switch to the correct input. Finally, if you are a Comcast customer be aware that SOME of the apps are blocked by Comcast. In other words, Comcast will not let you stream content from certain providers on the Apple TV. Pretty annoying...Comcast also blocks apps on other devices (for example, HBO Go on the Playstation 3 and 4), so this isn't an Apple TV specific problem. Also, if you think you're being clever and try to use AirPlay mirroring from your iPad's Comcast xfinity app to the Apple TV, prepare to be disappointed: Somehow Comcast's app ALSO blocks AirPlay functionality! Again, this is a Comcast complaint, not so much an Apple TV complaint (though Apple must have some involvement in allowing this to happen at all). Overall I don't think you can go wrong, especially for the geek squad refurb price and if you have a lot of Apple devices already in your home.

    Pretty Basic. Posted by: from: on Apple TV is ok. Sometimes it can be tedious and slow. Other times is can run smooth. I do have freezing issues periodically.

    Tried to save a few dollars on 4 hour sale. Posted by: from: on Didn't realize when I ordered it that it was "re-furbished" or returned. The remote control didn't work so I sent the unit back. Will pay special attention in the future to make sure the products I purchase are not "Re-furbished".

    Good vs Last Year's Roku 3 and Streaming Stick - N Posted by: from: on Much better than Roku. We have a Roku 3 (2014 model), Roku Streaming Stick (2014 model), the Apple TV 3, and a 4-channel Tablo DVR. We use Apple TV's native channels to watch Netflix. Using the Tablo for over-the-air network TV, mirroring from an iPad Mini 2 to Apple TV 3 provides better performance (less buffering# by far than Roku Streaming Stick, and somewhat better than Roku 3. Apple TV has the same quantity of RAM and a slightly faster single core CPU as the Roku 3, so the extra speed must be coming from a more efficient CPU or GPU #or both) and better firmware code. It beats the pants off the Roku Streaming Stick's hardware. Apple TV's seamless streaming of iPad and late-model Mac screens with Airplay is a good reason to choose it. If you're looking for voice control and a touch-screen like user interface, you're best served by the 4th generation Apple TV coming in October 2015.

    Excellent Quality! Posted by: from: on Very pleased. I purchased a new one first and then decided I wanted a second one. I saw this refurbished one and decided to give it a try. I am so pleased! It looks and works great! The Black Box looks brand new! The remote also looks brand new with the exception of one very tiny "ding" in the silver finish. Very minor. And it works perfectly. I am delighted and certainly recommend.
