Apple TV 2nd Generation Unboxing

Sorry for the poor video quality, next time I’ll remember to shoot video in 720p!

I get a lot of use with the XBOX 360 streaming content to my TV in my lounge room but there are a few things I can’t do with the 360 such as stream YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, etc to the TV. This is where the Apple TV comes in for me. I picked it up this morning and thought I’d capture the unboxing on camera in case there are others out there thinking of getting an Apple TV but not sure if its right for you.

I quite like it, its nice and small and completely silent which was something I was looking for. The 2nd gen Apple TV outputs 1080p which is nice, has built-in 802.11n WiFi (as well as Ethernet)  and can stream internet content such as YouTube, Vimeo and Flickr which was what I was looking for primarily. I already own an iPad and my girlfriend has an iPhone 4 already so taking advantage of the airplay functionality is great too. When iOS 5 releases next week there should be an update to the Apple TV also which will allow clone display of iPad and iPhone direct to the Apple TV.

It does the job nicely and is dead silent which is great.
