Score 10.0/10
Good points:
A great product, when you need a night in but there is nothing on the tv, you can instantly download a film or tv show that's available on dvd (we haven't come across one they haven't had yet). The downloads are available to watch within seconds. The quality is incredible.
Bad points:
It would be good to be able to download tv programmes that are available online through bbc iplayer etc for free. Apple TV seems to only stock shows that you have to pay for. You can watch film and cinema trailers which is great, but it would be useful to know when they are available to download on dvd.

Good points:
Great Features - brilliant when working !!
Bad points:
I tunes sync does not always work easily - user guide very poor - where is the more detailed on line guide ? Have to work things out for yourself. No clear instructions on how to copy across videos.

Why have you asked a question about battery life when the Apple TV is mains powered ? Lack of attention to detail.

Would be good if the AppleTV could be used for streaming video from laptop or PC from apps like BBC i-player - this would make it complete !!

Manufacturer's Description

Apple TV gives you access to an easy-to-navigate world of entertainment. Rent HD films. Buy TV programmes. Listen to your iTunes music. Even show off your photos. Connect one HDMI cable and, just like that, Apple TV turns your TV into so much more.

The largest selection of on-demand HD films. And thousands of TV programmes, too.

HD films. TV programmes. HD podcasts. It’s all here. Apple TV gives you instant access to newly released blockbuster hits and popular classic and library titles, including the largest selection of on-demand HD films. You can also purchase and watch most of your favourite TV programmes one day after they air.

Play your music through your home theatre system.

With Apple TV, iTunes syncs wirelessly to your TV, so all the music you’ve collected can now be played on the best speakers in the house. You can browse and buy music videos on the iTunes Store. Sort through songs and videos by artist, year, rating — all while viewing the album art. And sync songs and videos purchased on Apple TV to your computer and iPod or iPhone.

Now appearing on HDTV: Your photos. YouTube videos. And podcasts, too.

Your photos deserve a bigger stage. And Apple TV puts them on your widescreen TV, where everybody can see them in stunning high definition. Select My Photos to browse photos that are on your Mac or PC. You can also access your Flickr or MobileMe galleries. And you no longer have to gather around a computer screen to see YouTube videos and podcasts — Apple TV plays them big and bold on your TV’s spectacular screen.
