I just purchased an ATV2 Saturday night and I must say I am pleasantly surprised! I had (Note the Past Tense) a Roku 2 XD and was not impressed. All the menus seemed laggy and gimmicky all around. M new ATV2 is quick, streams all my iTunes media I have on my FreeNAS box with ease and just all around very happy with purchase! I'm in the process of using Handbrake to encode all my DVD Rips I have... which on a 2008 macbook is turning out to be a lengthy process... can't wait to get a new computer!!!
