Apple TV (3rd generation)

Verge Review

After endless speculation and debate, Apple's latest event came and went with nary a mention of a Cupertino-made television set. But Apple's little set-top box did get a refresh, bringing some oft-requested upgrades and improvements to the $99 device.

    I absolutely love this little thing. I use it a lot! There's great content and isn't to big either so it won't take up to much room next to your TV. For only $99 BRAND NEW it's a steal. The Apple TV is amazing and if you like the Apple ecosystem (like me) you will love it. What I like about it is how it makes my regular none smart tv like a smart tv. Overall it's a great little device and I would recommend it for anyone who likes the Apple ecosystem.
