This Apple TV seems like a great upgrade over my previous Apple TV model. At first glance the speed is much smoother and heavier apps like YoutubeTV are running much more smoothly. I can't speak on TV quality but everything does look a bit more crisp in comparison. Loading of video is much smoother and is a glaring improvement over previous models. Already enjoying this new model!

The body also seems like the same size as previous Apple TVs since it fits in my previous AppleTV's mount.

The remote is a MASSIVE upgrade over previous models already. Much easier to grip in the hand with square corners but a rounded back. It feels much better and I don't find myself hitting the siri button on the right side of the remote. The physical buttons on the touchpad help so much navigation!

The re-adjustment of the buttons has been an easy and natural adjustment since the icons are a bit easier to understand. Also a physical power button will be amazing for the people who couldn't find it on the previous model.

I do wish there was a light on the remote but I can understand wanting to keep the design sleek.

Overall 10/10 nice upgrade over the previous model. It worked directly out of the box. I will update this review if I come across anything more glaring.
