“In less than 15 minutes, Apple TV was up and running, and I was on the couch enjoying a movie. I watched feature films and TV shows I purchased from the iTunes store as well as feature films I converted from DVD with Handbrake,” Levitus reports.
Levitus reports, “Being able to choose iTunes songs, artists and playlists on the TV screen with the Apple TV remote control was a treat [and] using Apple TV to display slide shows from iPhoto was the icing on the cake. I loved being able to select background music and turn on the Ken Burns effect and gorgeous transitions without leaving the couch. And the photos looked spectacular.”
“I wish it supported true high-definition programming and surround sound. So for now when I want the most engrossing experience, I’ll still watch DVDs. But for most movies and TV shows and all of my music and photos, Apple TV is a delightful addition to my HDTV setup,” Levitus reports.
Levitus reports, “Bottom line: I like Apple TV. A lot.”
