    Apple TV (Gen 4) - 32GB

    This review is for the latest AppleTV 4th generation with Siri Remote. As has been reported by many on the web, the remote is just cool! Apart from the remote, here are things I really like on the new ATV: 1- iOS based modern Interface officially known as TVOS 2- Third party apps, though it is yet to reach the fever level of its iOS sibling 3- On-board flash based storage space (32Gb) 4- Super fast and responsive navigation thru out the entire system 5- Effective voice search, though yet to be implemented across the board. What I really hate on this ATV iteration: 1) NO Software remote and existing Apple Remote App not compatible. Are you kidding me? Apple's own TV remote App Cannot operate Apple's latest TV device? That got to be the biggest joke of the year! The remote incompatibility single handedly pulled down the Apple mantra of ...."it just works". It made the Apple TV look unfinished/beta/rushed job. 2)- Apple need to do away with the idea of forcing iTunes account authentication when setting up Home-Sharing between two devices within the same LAN. I should be able to share things within my wired or Wifi network without having to travel outside to iCloud and back to a device sitting just a few feet away. 3) No more optical audio output. Apple, you just released audio streaming service "Beat Music/Apple Radio", to encourage people to use your service means not shooting yourself on the foot by removing one of the main means of integrating it into existing AV system. Not every AV Receiver is capable of HDMI audio return. Even those that does, user may not want to be forced to use HDMI when they could have easily run an optical cable only.

    About as Expected

    I didn't leap at getting the original Apple TV as I was disappointed that it didn't have Amazon Prime, so I went with app rich BluRay players that had Amazon Prime. Since then, I saw a deal on this and even though it still doesn't have Amazon Prime, there are plenty of apps and I wanted the ability to AirPlay from my iOS devices and Macbook, so that's an added bonus since it works seamlessly. My only complaint thus far is that the YouTube app itself has been spotty on performance, but the rest of the apps I've worked with are much better than the BluRay player versions of the apps I've played with before. The new remote in typical Apple flair is sleek, but as is also typical of Apple -- high on polish and less on just basic usability. Also a frustration is (again in typical Apple-ness), you don't get batteries, you have to charge it with the lightning cable. Since I have enough Apple gadgets in my house, this isn't a showstopper, but if this were the only Apple product I had, I'd be unhappy with this. The initial setup of the device would've gone better if it had properly paired with my iPhone (as it will pull over your home WiFi settings, Apple ID, etc. if it can pair with your iPhone or iPad), but instead I had to type all that manually with the remote -- which is (again) frustrating as the remote doesn't use traditional remote style buttons. My final comment is that this has no audio out if you wanted to run composite L/R audio or to a receiver to play audio. I guess in today's HDTV centric entertainment, maybe this isn't a big deal, but if you had older receivers that you wanted high quality audio piped from your iTunes library or streaming services through to your receiver, it doesn't have this capability. Basically you just have HDMI out. So, if you have a receiver that you funnel all HDMI through it, this would probably work great. If not and you wanted just to listen to music, then you're stuck with listening to it through tinny HDTV speakers.

    Riddled With Bugs

    I was excited to purchase the new Apple TV. I had 3 of the 3rd generation Apple TVs and was looking forward to the App Store. In general, the new features are cool, but there are a number of bugs that impact the basic functioning of the device. Apple is becoming more like Microsoft everyday. For example, streaming from iTunes from my computer, there is a lot of buffering, the screen goes blank and sometimes the screen freezes and only the soundtrack moves forward. My old Apple TVs never exhibited this behaviour. This is a known issue - several people complaining about it on Apple support. I have 300MBPs internet service and I typically get 60 to 70 MBPs where the Apple TV is positioned. Given, that there were no problems with prior Apple TVs, I don't believe it is a network problem. For some reason, when using Airplay from an iPhone, if the screen locks, the airplay will discontinue. This was not exhibited in my prior Apple TVs. Other people are noting similar issues on Apple Support forums. Netflix, Vevo, You Tube all work fine. The Apple TV 4 is much snappier than prior Apple TVs. The App store is pretty cool, but limited at this time. The HDMI sometimes loses connection with my TV. Not sure if this is device specific or across the Apple TV 4 range. In general - the device has a lot of potential - but it does not have Apple's usual "It Just Works" approach to functionality. I will likely return it and repurchase when the next iteration of the Operating System is released.

    Not quite ready for prime-time

    This is a review for the initial release of the Gen 4 Apple TV 32GB. The interface isn't as cluttered but there is a lot of missing functionality. Love the size of the new remote but the swipe touch surface is hit or miss. It seems pretty inconsistent. The screensavers are amazing but the video quality for playing movies and TV shows is worse than the Gen3. There are lot of stutters and pauses even with lots of bandwidth. Hulu's App(not made by Apple) is really buggy and the video quality is pretty bad. There are a lot of missing features (e.g. can't change name of device, bluetooth keyboards don't work on Gen4 now, parental controls don't consistantly work,, audio is hit or miss, DTS doesn't seem to always work, etc.). Overall the device seems to have a lot of horsepower but the software isn't quite ready yet. I would wait until they get some of these things fixed before buying one. Hopefully they will get a lot of the issues fixed before Christmas so it can be used as nice little presents for loved ones. Right now, my advice is to hold off.

    Bought this to replace an Apple TV 2 and a Roku 3. RIght now as is it feels like I am beta testing a product. There are a lot of stability and performance issues. Used it for a total of 4 hours last night. It crashed/rebooted on its own 8 times. Displayed NOT AVAILABLE about 1/2 the time when I tried to airplay to it in several different apps on my iphone 6s. Airplay with the Amazon Video app did not work at all. Would not use/see my iphone 6s to do the set up at the beginning. Lost connection to the remote several times (even while using it). Every game I played (except for Asphalt 8) stuttered. NO support for the Remote App. Scrolling is wonky at times- especially when using the keyboard. (Charged the remote for 2 hours before using it) That said - I like Netflix, Hulu, Youtube, Vevo, etc. I like the search function and hope it expands to everything on the ATV4. Asphalt 8 played very well and looks great. Being able to FFW and RW with a swipe is great as is just saying "Go back 1 minute" or "What did he say?" There is a lot of potential here. Hopefully an OS update fixes the stability and performance issues. 9.1 just went into Beta so we shall see.

    Great apple tv as always with an awesome remote

    I used to have the older generation Apple TV and loved it and how well it worked as well as all the features on it. When I was moved to be stationed out on the west coast I left it with my parents so that they could use it for Netflix and to watch other movies and apps on the device. I finally decided it was time to get the newer one since I was missing the Apple TV. I have a Playstation 4, which also has a lot of the apps that Apple TV has, but a big feature that the playstation doesn't have is the screen mirroring feature where if you have another apple device (such as an iPhone, iPad, or Macbook) you can put whatever is on your screen on the tv. The New Remote I definitely was expecting a lot from the new remote and it didn't disappoint. The touchpad feature works really well and I have not noticed any problems with it and it is such a nice feature to have that makes navigating a breeze. The ability to just talk to the remote "Siri" instead of having to type everything makes it so much easier! The TV feature Apple TV has a new feature that is meant to try and connect all the TV apps so that you can sign in once through your TV provider and it will sign into all of the apps, which is a PHENOMENAL idea! I love it! The only problem is that not too many providers are on the list of working with it (U-verse for example in my situation). Even without that you can still use the TV app to navigate all of the TV apps and have everything in one place to look at, instead of having to go from each specific app for every channel. All in all, I am still a big fan of Apple TV and recommend it over any other streaming service, especially if you have other apple products.

    Not a Apple basher

    Posted

    First off, unlike many that post these negative reviews I am not a Apple basher. I currently have the following products that I heartily recommend. MacBook Pro (2012), iMac 21" 2.5gh i5, iPhone 6, previous generation apple tv, iPad mini (second generation), iPod touch (and numerous other devices that I no longer use). All have worked perfectly from day one and continue to do so. This latest generation Apple TV worked well when I brought it home (purchased it at Sams Club for 119.00). After updating the system software to the current version it has been nothing but trouble. It is constantly unable to connect, requires several attempts just to play movies I've already purchased and has been a huge disappointment. The remote works well though it took allot of getting used to. It seemed much faster then the earlier version, but seems much less useful. I use my Apple TV to compliment my cable tv, not to replace it. The current Apple TV seems to want to bypass your cable provider (instead of working with it as the older one did) and it appears they are more concerned with selling subscriptions (like Amazon) then providing a top notch product. Gone are apps like HBO Go (that you can use with your cable subscription, now it seem you have to subscribe though Apple). Whether they come back is yet to be seen, but as the current Apple TV is I would not recommend it to anyone. I would like to give it more then one star but honestly cannot recommend it, my old Apple TV is much better for my needs and I wish I had spent have as much for a better product.

    It was crazy easy to setup and use, totally Apple in that respect. I bough it primarily for listening to my massive music collection thru my home stereo. YES it would totally stream my collection the functionality was fine. My issue came with the output format. My Stereo is a 1993 High end Yamaha (yes I know that's ancient but the specs rival anything sold in a Best Buy Magnolia) so I don't have HDMI inputs. The latest gen Apple TV only has HDMI. So I send the HDMI to my current year Sony tv and use the optical out from the tv to get the sound to the stereo. This works flawlessly for My XBOX One and Comcast X1 DVR, they both send perfect Dolby Digital and DTS etc with no flaws or issues. Something in the format it sent the music out in would only come acros as Pro Logic and to make it worse it would only use the center channel and the surrounds. The mains and subwoofer got nothing. Videos and services like Netflix, CBS,HBO,etc were fine using both DD and DTS. It was only iTunes. I contacted Apple and we could not resolve the issue. It was either EVERYTHING was in 2ch stereo or EVERYTHING was using surround sound. Stereo isn't that good for modern video as even the cheapest commercials are using surround sound these days and surround sound would be fine for audio only but when it won't decode to the proper channels.... Now I will freely admit it most likely has everything to do with the age of my receiver, but if I could have at least got it t be normal 2ch stereo would have been fine. So to wrap this up, if you have an older stereo and audio only sources are your primary use, you may be disappointed. If you have newer Audio gear you should be ok, but I can't verify that.

    Near perfect streaming box

    The apple TV is absolutely great for anyone invested in the apple ecosystem. If you've heard this term before, basically you use an iPhone, purchase music, TV shows, or movies on iTunes, have a Mac computer. A caveat of this, however, is apple obviously wants you to utilize what they are selling (those TV shows and movies) So you won't have the same access to everything offered by their competitors, be that Google or Amazon. Pros: very simple to use. The controller is easy and the touch panel on it is nearly as responsive on a phone or tablet. The Siri button works great and is very intuitive and quick. Streaming content loads snappy even with a lower WiFi speed. (I've streamed Netflix even in HD on 3mbps, even though the apple TV documentation seems to indicate it will downgrade HD at lower WiFi speeds.) Cons: there's no dedicated "back" button. You have to use the menu button. This is sometimes a struggle because if you wanted to select the menu to change, say, subtitles or audio tracks in a video you're watching, the Menu button will go back, not bring up a menu. The only other con is the lack of other video services like amazon or Google play. There's YouTube, I guess, but that's not what I'm looking for on a TV to begin with. Bottom line, I don't even use many apple products. I don't have an iPhone, but the apple TV is a great a great addition to my home entertainment. It's a little pricey for what you're getting, considering there are other streaming boxes that can accomplish nearly the same thing or you could always hook your computer straight to your TV. But for not having to switch hdmi cables around or move my computer, I'll take the apple TV any day for the simplicity of the product.

    I suppose I should start this review by saying that I am a hardcore Apple fan. My electronics are Apple. So I bought this knowing that it would work seamlessly with all of my devices. (I also knew I would like it because I have the previous generation.) I have had a few streaming devices before transitioning to the Apple TV. I had the first generation Roku and a Roku 3, as well as a Samsung Blu-Ray player with streaming capabilities. These were all great at watching Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, etc. But they failed miserably at seamlessly transmitting media from my electronic devices onto the TV. I had cables--HDMI to my computer. But it was a pain to hook it up and sit on the floor next to the TV if I wanted to watch YouTube videos. (I know, third world problem) This is the only thing that works with my devices. And to me it is worth it. ALSO, this generation surpasses the previous one. I LOVE that there are so many more apps that can be downloaded and that the remote is essentially a trackpad. To me it is more user friendly--well worth the extra money. But as I said before, I am an Apple fan. So take my opinion as you will. I will say, however, that I hate that I cannot stream Amazon movies. The fact that Apple and Amazon can't play nicely together is an annoyance and petty, if you ask me, but I digress. I still have my Blu-Ray player that works well for Amazon Prime movies, and considering this is the only streaming player that allows me to screen mirror my phone, I would buy it again in a heartbeat.

    A Fantastic Addition to Apple Ecosystem

    Being primarily an "Apple" family, it was a no-brainer to give this product a go. I was so excited to be able to download apps for the newly opened interface, Siri integration, and to get my hands on the redesigned remote control! None of this has disappointed yet. I have two other previous generation AppleTV units on other televisions and I'm finding myself wishing they had the same capabilities as this one. There was one app that I downloaded right off the bat that I relied on AirPlay to view the content from my phone. Although it was workable, now that the on demand app is native to AppleTV, it's a joy to open if up and stream without making the AirPlay connection! The remote itself has also been a joy to use. The ease of scrolling using the touch pad makes getting around much easier. That combined with Siri commands to search for items and to perform some tasks make navigation a lot easier! Without me even programming anything, the remote also picked up my television to turn it off when I put the AppleTV to sleep as well as use the volume control straight from the AppleTV remote! Again, being part of the Apple family of products makes this a perfect addition if you want to integrate your television(s) into the fun. I would not hesitate picking this up if this would be your first one. The ONLY negative I had experienced, however, is that I dropped the remote and the touch pad area experienced a crack on it. Despite this blemish, the remote has continued to perform without problems.

    Wonderful Plan and features but subpar execution

    The new fourth-generation AppleTV does have a lot of wonderful ideas, features and a number of advantages. At the same time it can cause a bit of frustration because the implementation of those ideas and features are not quite up to par just yet. It will take some time to get used to the remote but more specifically some of the apps don't function well (Popular apps such as Netflix). To be fair some of those issues and problems when it comes to the new apps for the fourth generation Apple TV is the fault of the app developers. In time they should be able to work out the bugs, but they do exist. As far as the functionality of the AppleTV goes, I actually find a better and smoother experience with the previous third generation Apple TV. This fourth-generation one has to be restarted quite often to clear bugs or cobwebs. For example, using the back button or sometimes navigating and trying to enter an app is problematic. Sometimes you have to hit the remote "enter" multiple times for it to enter an app and other times it's simply non-responsive which requires you back out of the system altogether or do a restart. It does affect the user experience when the experience does not go so smoothly. Once you're actually using the app, playing your videos and such successfully I don't find very many issues other then the fast-forward and rewind feature sometimes being a little buggy (either not responding at all or requiring multiple tries to make it advance forward or backward). All in all I would say it is a good product but as it is new it requires a bit more polishing. Future software improvements should polish it and make it that much better.

    I'm not the biggest Apple fan, and it wasn't my first choice - I had actually bought the Roku 4. But the Roku didn't work with the HDMI port on my main TV, no audio. I tried everything to get it fixed (it worked on other TVs) but wasn't able to. Because of this, I had to get the Apple TV 4 instead, as a Christmas gift for my wife. We we were previously using a Chromecast device with an iPad to watch Netflix, Plex, and HBO Go. I have to say, I'm very happy with the decision. Setup was much easier than the Roku because I had an iOS device connected on my wireless network. It took my wireless settings and my account information from the iPad and was up and running in less than 15 minutes. Navigation is a little weird at first. The remote is sensitive and responsive, but you can't always tell what icon you're on. It's very easy to find your way around once you figure out that the entire top half of the remote is a button. The apps load quickly and streaming was consistent. There were hiccups, some apps took forever to finally connect to the internet and if one hangs (as one of the games I loaded did), it can be tricky to figure out how to kill it. No surprise that network issues can cause problems. Other than that, most of the apps were easy to navigate and it played everything we threw at it. I was concerned some of my Plex movies wouldn't play, but so far no issues. This is much quicker, easier, and more stable than Chromecast. The remote is kinda fun to use and it's got a nice aesthetic. Very pleased overall.

    I bought this Apple TV so that I could use AirPlay with my MacBook Pro and my iPhone 6 on my tv and to use Netflix. I was a little dissapointed that Amazon was not included and the one feature I would love the most is that is not included would be integration with my current cable set top box. Would love to be able to have it plugged into my cable so that it would be and all in one interface without the need for switching back and forth from cable to Apple TV a feature that I see coming in the future of the copyrights could get worked out. Overall I love my Apple TV. It runs extremely smooth setup wirelessly through my 5ghz 802.11AC router. Streaming video is SUPER fast. There aren't very many decent games yet as I would hoped there would be but that's not a huge deal. I got the 32 GB hard drive instead of 64. I do not see spending another 50 bucks for space I will not need. If your are interested in buying an Apple TV in hopes of replacing your cable with it. That I DO NOT RECCOMEND. MOST OF THE APPS THAT STREAM TV LIKE CBS, NBC, ESPN etc. require you to log in through your cable provider to prove you have a subscription. They don't offer a set subscription through Apple TV. You must have cable or satellite in order to use those apps. But if your looking to buy it so that you can make your TV your computer monitor so to speak using AirPlay or to easily use Netflix. This is for you. As I said there is not an Amazon app to be downloaded however you can open the Amazon app on your phone and it has a nice integrated AirPlay function within the app so that you can watch it through your Apple TV through AirPlay. Hope that helps. Enjoy!!!

    I was excited to get the new Apple TV after loving my old one, but I am so disappointed in this upgrade. I read all these great reviews and think maybe I got lemon? Who knows. Either way, I'll share my issues with this machine. First, set up was easy as it is on all Apple products and having the App Store has proved useful. That's where the good stops. I've had consistent issues with the video playing, but the sound being choppy. It's almost like it skips. I went to the Apple message boards to learn I wasn't the only one having this issue, so I decided to hard line my Apple TV in as many people assumed it was a wifi issue. Nope, still happening. Next we tried a new better HDMI, really exhausting our efforts, didn't help. These sound issues happen about 75% of the time when we watch anything from our iTunes account or Netflix. Speaking of Netflix, it frequently errors out and we struggle to get it going again. At times the video will just freeze while the sound keeps playing, again with iTunes and Netflix. I have none of these issues with any other streaming device (Xbox One & PlayStation) including my other older Apple TV. All of those devices use wifi to stream. Lastly, the remote. I can see where Apple was trying to go, but they failed. The touch pad is a little too sensitive making navigating or entering a password very frustrating at times. The Siri feature is nice, but would be better if I could talk to the Apple TV without needing to use the remote, because let's be honest, we all loose it because it's so small. Overall I am just not impressed, I prefer the older Apple TV model, it's more reliable

    This is my second Apple TV my first was a second generation which was ok, but I am really liking the latest one. I love all the apps that allow me to watch network and cable channels like Bates motel whenever We want to. The new remote is a major upgrade from the minimal one from my older Apple TV, we love the touch swipe functionality which felt a lot like my Magic Mouse I use on my Mac mini. Another great feature is way it works with games like tennis and bowling and I was amazed on how well it worked with the tennis game, I mean you can get a real work out, and it is very precise and you get the actIon feeling kind of like ping pong, nice big plus. I totally love the app store as I have had iPads and iPhones over the years so it is a natural progression to have it on the apple tv. There are a lot of familiar titles, like all of the Tv channel apps I am used using via airplay, but now it is great to have them native to the device. Great new addition is the SyFy channel which I had to AirPlay from iPad, but now it is available awesome! I like some of the new health apps and may even give yoga a try. I also have tons of music from years of being an iTunes user so great to have all of that available as well as being able to AirPlay all the music I have setup on Amazon prime music. Overall while I just wanted a more stable upgrade as the older one was getting glitchy, I am very pleased with the latest product it works great and even magically was able to find my tv and reciever so I can use the remote for sound control. I would give it six stars if I could!

    For years I have wanted an Apple TV mainly for the AirPlay Mirroring and Netflix. I finally decided to break down and buy the latest Gen device and I must say that it's not regretted at all. I bought the 32 GB one because I didn't need the extra space really and 50 bucks wasn't worth difference. It is very fast and responsive just like ALL Apple devices and it runs very smoothly without much buffer (loading). I almost bought the last gen Apple TV but I figured I'd go ahead and get the newer one since it has a newer better remote with Siri which makes it very easy to rewind/fast forward movies Etc. very simple setup also as is with ALL Apple devices. The o my downfall was that it did not come with a HDMI cable which nothing does anyways but I had an extra lying around. Overall I gave this product 4 stars. Would have given it five if it would have had integration with my current set top cable box to where I could seamlessly switch from cable back to Apple TV without much effort. Would love to have my cable box connected Into Apple TV and have it upload the cable guide into Apple TV. Other than that I can't think of anything else that I would like in it. Overall I'm very pleased! If you are interested in buying one but are on the ropes. If you have other Apple products that you can use AirPlay with than its for you. There is also no Amazon Prime video app available on the App Store so you have to use it on your phone/computer and AirPlay mirror it through your Apple TV which isn't to bad. Thanks Amazon for having a mirroring feature for us to be able to do that. Good luck and hope you enjoy!

    Set up was a breeze. Basically plug and play when using an iOS device to set up. There aren't many apps as of yet, but enough to keep you busy for now. I love the new Siri remote. It's larger than our Apple TV 3 remote so it feels better in your hand. The trackpad has a little learning curve and Siri works great. So easy to search for shows as opposed to having to open each app to search. The picture looks great even when casting videos through services like Amazon Video. There's quite a few accessibility features. I've only used the zoom feature, which I love as I don't need my glasses to browse through movies/shows. My only minor gripes are there's no way to check how much storage you have available. It only lists the apps and how much space they're taking up, which is great. However, it would be nice to know how much storage you're using and have available. The remote app is not compatible as of yet. It would be great to have the keyboard for typing log in info. While some things are the same as the previous Apple TV I feel there's enough new features to upgrade.

    I have a samsung smart tv and the smart hub stopped working due to some network error. I tried fixing it and gave up as I wasn't moving forward in fixing it. I use the youtube, willow tv, yupptv and netflix app on a daily basis on my samsung tv. When I contacted samsung they said it was going to cost me 150$ for the technician to apply a software upgrade to resolve the issue with my smart hub. I decided to invest that money on apple tv instead of paying samsung as it offers pretty much the same apps I use with additional benefits such as games, itunes, iphone/ipad and Mac OS mirroring etc. Totally satisfied with the product. Installation is a breeze. You don't even have to set up the wifi or apple account if you use an apple product like an iphone. You just take the phone close to the apple tv during the initial set up and it detects everything needed from your phone. Apps are very responsive and streaming is never interrupted. I like the fact that I can mirror my laptop or ipad displays onto the TV without the hassle of additional HDMI cables and adapters. Best Part - The remote is IR, I don't need to point it at the apple tv to control it. Pros : Many as listed above Cons : Button on the remote feels little delicate, Option to play media from a hard drive using a USB port would have been perfect (It's apple, so we can forget about it, just being over ambitious), price is higher than comparable options such as google chrome cast, amazon fire stick or roku.

    AppleTv is far better than FireStick and Chromcast

    First thing, I bought the great deal of Apple TV 4th generation on Best Buy in which I got game controller worth 50$ as free. When you compare all the features with FireStick and Chromcast, all features are same except major 2 things. One is you can cast anything on TV whether it’s on web browser or any app or any device. You can mirror your iPhone or any Apple device to big screen with just one click. That’s awesome. In Chromcast, you can cast video from app or chrome browser only. Second is if you have smart HomeKit, Philips Hue bulbs etc, you can Control it from another corner of the world. It doesn’t require to be connected on same WiFi connection. Apple has synchronized everything with Apple ID. I guess this feature is also not available in FireStick and Chromcast. Although Apple remote looks really nice with small and slick design, unfortunately it connects with Apple TV via Bluetooth. So, it’s frequently disconnected or you have to keep it in range in order to operate it. But Apple has included in built remote in iOS 11 which makes no use of Apple remote. Gaming experience is also awesome when you cast iPhone screen on big screen and play the game. There is negligible lag between audio and video when you play the game. Last thing, it seems little expensive compared to other products, but definitely worth it. You just love it. Find good deal on BestBuy and buy it from here.
