In my review of the Apple TV, one of my complaints was the 40GB hard drive (which only has 33GB of usable space). Though Apple says that’s enough to store store up to 50 hours of video, 9,000 songs, 25,000 photos or a combination of each, it doesn’t...

The Apple TV cant access Internet videos - and its not a DVR like TiVo - but it works well as a way to send your iTunes content to a big screen. At its core, the Apple TV is a conduit between your iTunes library and your widescreen TV. That may no...
Good Simple setup. Breezy to use. Only way to link iTunes-purchased media to the home theater.
Bad Small hard drive. No HD content on the iTunes Store. Restricted video formats. Cant access iTunes Internet radio.
Bottom line The Apple TV frees your iTunes movies, TV shows, podcasts, and music, as well as your photos, from confinement within your Mac. If youve longed for a way to connect your iTunes media collection to your home theater, the Apple TV is the missing link...

Good Streaming works remarkably well over moderate-to-fast networks; easy to set up and use; solid picture quality; beautiful interface.
