PC Magazine reviews new 1080p Apple TV: Editors’ Choice

“Two years later, and our Editors’ Choice set-top box Apple TV ($99, 4 stars) is back, and it’s new and improved,” Will Greenwald reports for PC Magazine. “Those improvements are very, very slight, but they still count. The 2012 model is pretty much identical to the old one in size, shape, features, and its $99 (list) price tag.”
“An overhauled iOS-like interface gives the Apple TV a fresh menu system, but that’s available to last-gen Apple TV owners through a software update. Still, the new model supports 1080p video and keeps its under-$100 price, so it retains its Editors’ Choice crown.,” Greenwald reports. “If you already have an Apple TV from 2010 or you don’t have a large 1080p HDTV, you don’t need the new box. If you’re new to the game, and want to stream all of your iTunes media and Netflix, the new Apple TV is a top choice.”

Greenwald reports, “If you have an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, the benefits are even more apparent thanks to AirPlay support and the ability to use those devices as a remote.”
