Very much dependent on hw you mange your media. I love mine and its used everyday.

*Music via iTunes Match

*Netflix

*Movies streamed from my computer upstairs (everything must be in iTunes though for ATV to see them). There is an programme called iVI that does all the work for you though and adds in all the metadata.

*AirPlay and Mirroring from iPhone and iPad.

*Photostream (if you have an iPhone) suddenly becomes useful. All photos can be viewed pretty much instantly on you TV without needing to do anything at all.

If you either already have a lot of your content in iTunes, or are prepared to take the time to convert it so it is then the ATV really is excellent. User experience exceeds anything else I've tried for streaming media around the home. It very much does depend on how you manage your media though whether it is for you.

I run ATV2. It is brill. I have a WD network drive which is DLNA'd to my tv, though, so external content can sneak in.

Since the OS upgrade, streaming web content (be it live streams or whatever), direct to my tv has been utterly fantastic.

And as Dave says, Netflix is lovely on there.

Best £99 spent by me.

I use my apple TV quite a bit. We download a lot of films (legally of course) and then i convert everything to MP4 and watch via the apple TV. We do use their apple store to rent films a couple of times a month. I know renting HD is quite expensive but when you think 2 student tickets was £20 to see Spring Breakers, the £4.50 doesn't seem so bad!

I'm looking for a device to run XBMC on my TV, although I don't know an enormous amount about it.

Would an ATV be a good idea? A friend mentioned that as a possibility.

Raspberry Pi? Xios? ATV? It would be mostly for streaming stuff from online.

Why is Pi hard work? It's currently the favourite, buying a card with XBMC.
