Not a slam-dunk
Engadget pounced on one for a review that concluded AppleTV isn't yet a solution for replacing cable TV service. It said content available on the device is still limited. An excerpt:If you just want a dead simple movie rental box and you're not that picky about content, the Apple TV is a no-brainer. If, like us, you're looking for options good enough to make you can the cable, Apple's new box still feels a lot like a hobby.
It may not be a no-brainer to pay $99 for an AppleTV if you already have more content available through video playback devices connected to your TV, such as a current-generation game console or networked Blu-ray player.
