And there are reports all over of tracking pixel on the TV streams and questionable privacy policies of the TV makers or Amazon, or whatever. I refuse to have my TV actually connected to the internet.
I understand Apple's push to have ATV+ on more devices, but please -please - please do not EOL the AppleTV box.
I've owned Rokus, Amazon Fire devices, Smart TVs and a couple of other Apple TVs over the years, but I just set up the new Apple TV 4K this weekend, and daaaamn, Apple did get it RIGHT this time. Granted, I've always preferred the layout of the Apple TV home screen to that of the Roku and Amazon (which seem designed to push MORE apps/media at you rather than to allow you to enjoy the ones you already have), but on this new device, the entire experience is now buttery smooth. Transitions, menus, startup, shutdown, app selection -- it all just works better on this edition.
YMMV, but I'm a huge fan of the most recent Apple TV, and it's price really isn't out of line for what you get (ie, the Spatial Audio, SharePlay, Audio Sharing, HomeKit, AirPlay, etc that hellosil mentioned earlier.

AppleTV also works as your hub for homekit enabled devices, allowing some really cool features, including the ability to control your devices from literally anywhere with an internet connection. It also does cool things like shows you who is at the door on your TV if you have a video doorbell and since Siri is controllable with the remote, it allows you to control all of your homekit devices through Siri if your phone isn't anywhere nearby.
This is more specifically about Plex on these devices, but it will definitely give you an idea of how different devices compare to each other in many ways:
Also, this video is for the old AppleTV 4K from before the upgrade earlier this year.
