Tricky WiFi set up but worth the hassle. Great upgrade!
Now that it's up and running, we love it. Our only frustration came during the set-up when we had continued WiFi issues. At times the Apple TV would pick up the WiFi but most of the time wouldn't connect even after trying everything (restarting Apple TV, modem, router, resetting to factory, etc). It then wouldn't see the WiFi network or if it did, say it couldn't connect even when all other devices were connecting just fine.
We almost sent it back until I came across an article on Google about going into your router settings and adding the Apple TV MAC address to the WPA permissions (just Google exactly that and you'll find step-by-step instructions). This was simple once we found the article and its worked perfectly ever since. It's just weird that we had to dig so much to figure this out when historically, Apple products have been extremely easy to set up.
Nevertheless, it was worth hassle. The 4k picture is gorgeous. The voice-to-text remote is awesome. Also, once you get past the WiFi issue, set up was incredibly easy. You bluetooth connect your phone to the Apple TV and it basically clones it, including all of your log-ins (Netflix, iTunes, Hulu, etc.) Now, whenever my phone is near by, it automatically gives you the option to use the keyboard on your phone to type into the Apple TV if you don't want to get up to grab the remote.
Long story short, if you're using an older gen Apple TV, this is definitely worth the upgrade.Read full review
