I’ve never purchased from Woot before. Their FAQ is confusing and I’m disinclined to patronize them, but it’s a good deal and I’ve been considering a ROKU player.

What is the returns and manufacutrers warranty situation for Apple products from Woot?

As per the Woot Apple TV sale page it is Apple's standard warranty for a new product. Woot is basically just an extension of Amazon at this point. Also, its sold out now so it doesn't matter :)

Haha noice. I’m not a prime member, so with the $10 extra plus shipping, less of a deal anyway.

Also, the Amazon parentage is part of my disinclination. I’ll get a Roku or ATV next time they’re on sale from Best Buy. I’m not in urgent need.

This model has no YouTube HDR support as a FYI. It only allows 4K SDR YouTube. It works fine for the normal HDR10, Dolby Vision streaming content.
I've set my Apple TV 4K (2021) to 4K SDR because it looks much better than HDR
My TV supports HDR 10

I dunno, maybe it's just my TV's fault lol

I should order this. This is genuinely my favorite remote for a tv type device.
The remote is available for less than $20 new, for those of you nostalgic ones. Never liked the old remote, it's not ergonomic and too easy to inadvertently tap a button... not that the new remote is a great ergonomic design either!

I was excited about the new remote, I didn't dislike the old one, but thought, hey - this must be better, right? Well after having it for about a month, I hate the new remote.

I also keep having this issue with the newer 4K Apple TV, it keeps switching between audio formats, and cutting audio - I have reset the entire Apple TV several times, same issue. This is not my TV, I brought back my other older 4K Apple TV with old Siri remote - and no audio issues, no idea why this was happening. I had moved the older Apple TV to another room thinking the newer Apple TV was better or faster, but I see no improvement.

I am returning the newer Apple TV with new remote back to Amazon, and placed this Woot one.

They are already sold out, so this deal is no longer available! Perhaps Apple is trying to get rid of the remaining stock of 2017 models.

I’ve read several forum threads saying ATV 4Ks are sold out at many retail stores too. So maybe Apple is having supply issues. I doubt we will see an update to the 2021 model any time soon though.

I wouldn’t buy it for $10. Roku does everything we need for $30: Amazon, Netflix, and Plex. Total subscription cost is about $30 per month and we order stuff off Amazon so get faster shipping to boot. Tried Apple subscription and there just wasn’t anything of interest to us.

I didn't have audio issues, but I had video issues with my AppleTV 4k. It turns out it didn't like my HDMI cable. Bought a new one and it was fine. Might be similar for you?

Anyway, part of me is tempted, but the TV that doesn't have an AppleTV on it still has the AppleTV+ app, as well as Netflix, Amazon, and YouTube, so aside from a slightly faster interface, I'm not sure I see any value in getting this.

Probably is. Many/most "HDR" labeled TVs can accept the signal, but can't actually reproduce it properly.

So unlike, say, 4K content on a 1080p display where it acts like supersampling, because these are mismatched color/lighting signals, it just comes out looking wrong.
