I know it’s all subjective, but I thought I’d share me experience real quick before I head out the door. I’ve been using and loving apple tvs since the Apple TV 3. It’s been the centerpiece of my living room and I’ve had a lot of good times with it. There’s nothing better than going on a trip with my family and taking a bunch of pictures and videos and coming home and reliving those moments by air playing those to my tv. And the way Apple TV just made renting movies so much easier than going to Redbox and buying movies that I can watch anywhere has been just plain awesome. Love that I can start a movie on my Apple TV and continue on my iPhone later on. But now smart TVs have gotten so good, I can’t really recommend people buy apple TVs anymore. Back in the day when TVs were nothing more than displays that did nothing else, sure. But last year I got an lg TV and wow. The web os interface is so much nicer than apple’s and their virtual assistant understands me even better than siri! How can siri, something that a trillion dollar touts as one of their biggest features, be so bad at even the most basic stuff? Now I moved that lg tv to the bedroom and bought a new Samsung and the difference between smart tv and Apple TV is even greater. The apps load quicker. The interface is much less cluttered, the assistant understands me better, it hooks directly into my home stuff, the picture quality is better when I watch through tv’s Netflix and YouTube vs apple’s, the remote is much much easier to use. And now I’m told Samsung will be getting an update in the spring where I’ll have iTunes and AirPlay. Two of the biggest reasons I had an Apple TV. So I wonder at this point if there’s anyone else that feels like me and sees it as a bit redundant having a box plugged into my tv that does what my tv already does.
