What's great about it: Easy to use, excellent for streaming, eliminates a few wires in my case
What's not so great: I think there isn't anything that could be improved
Apple has always made me wonder how they did it with making fun things so small and easy to use. They haven't disappointed me yet, and I am very happy to have this product. Airplay is probably my favorite feature. I tend to stream a lot and getting rid of a iPod to TV cable was a nice thing since I have a ton of cables running around to my electronics. I love the compact design of the case. Very simple design, but packed with a good bunch of features that makes my home theater quite entertaining. Overall, It's excellent for streaming, Looks very nice on my stand, emits very little heat, and is packed with fantastic features that I am sure you'll love.

The main reason I wanted the AppleTV was to play music from my iPhone into my stereo using AirPlay. And that works great! Since I clearly have an iPhone, I was able to use the quick-setup technique: the AppleTV gets your WiFi info and password from the iPhone using Bluetooth, and you're up and running very quickly. However: I did *not* see the easy setup message on the start screen at first, because I was going too quickly. I started trying to to a manual configuration, which was a *big* mistake. So, be sure to read the startup screen carefully.
Apple TV is just what I was looking for without having to buy a new tv. The preloaded apps on it are what I was looking for as well. Mirror option to use my phone on the bigger TV is really nice for viewing apps and emails.
