    Easy setup and powerful and fast wi-fi!

    I purchased this to replace my old 1TB AirPort, the one with the low profile. This current model is exponentially better. They've added antennas, changed it to a vertical profile (with the antennas at the top - better to transmit and receive) and paired it with VERY easy network setup in the current Mavericks OS. I had it all set up and working within a couple of minutes of getting it out of the box. The frustration I had with the old model was that the wi-fi signal, although strong, seemed to choke the speed of my connection. This current model is insanely powerful - I'm loading web pages on my iOS devices without any delay. Streaming to those devices is seamless. And the range is far better than before - it covers all of my property, making repeaters unnecessary for the first time. If you're also replacing an older AirPort, you could probably use the older model as a repeater - but I didn't have to. I use the AirPort's wi-fi signal instead of my wireless router's signal, because it's far more powerful.

    And, of course, the whole Time Machine backup is seamless - as usual. I couldn't be happier.

    Great hard drive/router

    Bought the Time Capsule after returning a SeaGate hard drive. As far as back ups and storage, which is my primary reason for buying, it is awesome. No issues so far and it functions as well as the other reviews have stated. Set up took 3 minutes, created my own network that I bridged off my current cable company provided router, and it sped up my streaming a little bit. My only issue, which I knew before buying, was that you can't access it when not in range of the signal. But that was expected. Great product, worth the money.

    Great Router with the bonus of wireless backup!

    Added this to an existing Apple Airport network... The cable modem attached to the main Airport Express is upstairs and most of our time is spent downstairs... Before adding the Time Capsule, the average speeds down stairs was about 10 Mbs.. After, they average 55 Mbs! GREAT increase!!!! VERY happy with the purchase! Plus it works as advertised for wireless back ups of both of our macbook pros!

    Great Router

    This router/ hard drive (for backup) is awesome!!! The range on it is twice that of the net gear router that I replaced. The support from Apple is spot on and very reliable!!! Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to purchase a new router or wifi for your home network!!! A+ for Apple and their AirPort Time Capsule and Support Team!!!!!!

    Airport Time Capsule 2TB Works Great

    I replaced a top of the line Netgear wireless router with the Airport Time Capsule 2TB in order provide a backup device for our family of Macbook Pros/Airs. It has worked fabulously since coming out of the box. It provides super fast streaming on multiple devices and works seamlessly with Time Machine to back everything up on our computers. The range is impressive as well. I absolutely love it!

    Really a great item!

    Fastest router I have ever had...67.8Mpbs/4.2Mpbs! My wife's Air up stair at the opposite end of our home is running 34/3.
    Very easy to set up and I have all the back up space I will ever need.
    Well, maybe.

    It really is Absolutely Amazing!

    We have a very old building with 18 inch thick block walls that has been added onto 3 times. Signals from routers never made a few feet beyond the office but with airport and one extender we have WiFi in the entire building and it is amazingly faster. Cant say how pleased I am, would recommended it to anyone.

    Just wish I had bought it sooner

    Fixed my range problem...

    I purchased this hoping it would cure my Wi-Fi access problem in the backyard. It worked!! The location of my outdoor audio equipment that I connect my iPad to is in a "Wi-Fi weak" corner. I was getting one or two signal bars on my iPad with the Airport Base Station. Now i'm getting 4 to 5 bars consistently. I was going to use the Airport Base Station as an extension, but there's no need as I have even better Wi-Fi signal coverage through out the house.

    I haven't tried the Time Machine backup app yet, but I'm sure it will exceed my expectations.

    Great product

    As all Apple products, this one is excellent. It's lightning fast due to the latest 802.11 ac speed. I've got an IPad Air and a MacBook Air both with ac and I can tell the difference. I had a Linksys EA2700 before which was a good product too, but didn't have the range or speed. The 2TB storage is also an excellent feature to back up the 3 Macs we have in the house.

    A must have

    What can I say. This device delivers - not surprised - I have recently become an Apple convert.

    Left the windows world behind - for good.

    Everything Apple designs is done with the user in mind.

    This device is no different. Set up was easy and backing up my computer is no longer a thought - it's automatic and flawless.

    Excellent range & speed

    I thought about upgrading my VirginMedia advanced wifi hub (100MB+ line) to this, when I finally did, I wish I had done it earlier! The range & speed on this device for my MacBook Retina, MacBook Air, iPads etc is amazing.

    Brilliant Product

    Replaced an earlier model which needed 2 Airport Expresses to extend the signal. With the new device I do not need the Expresses as the Time Machine covers a much, much bigger area with it's signal. Set up was very easy.

    Also bought a Extreme for the house with the same result. Apple always do things well and I would advise that it is always worth taking out AppleCare. The devices are normally covered if your Mac is under Apple Care. These warranties and support agreements are worth every penny.

    Sold the old systems on eBay which almost paid for one of the new routers.

    Best money spent

    I wanted to have an automated backup system for both my Mac and my brother's Mac. And I also wanted something that will help our internet as we are going to have our internet re-done in my home. I needed something to handle a lot of devices and this will do the trick. I absolutely love Apple and their products. I hear a lot of people say, "Once you go Mac, you never go back," and I absolutely DO NOT want to go back to Microsoft. It would be nice if Microsoft had something like this, oh wait, they probably don't have the power to make one since all their products catch viruses.

    Very good router/backup solution

    It is fast, reliable and takes up only a very small small space.

    I use an app called Time Machine Backup Scheduler from the Mac App Store to schedule daily backups over WIFI. It backs up my system every single night while I and my computer sleeps without any hassle.

    It is very good value and I can connect an external drive to backup the backup disk for double protection. Sweet!

    I always worried that if someone breaks into my apartment and steal my laptop they would take my attached backup drive. It is very unlikely that someone would take my router.

    Great router, cosmetically my wife approves

    I bought this to extend my network. FiOS router was in the basement and my wife was complaining about slow internet and her iPad2 dropping signal all of the time.

    I plugged in the router to the data port in a upstairs bedroom. Make sure to choose 'create network' using the same SSID, security settings, and password. It's fast. I knew it was going to be better but was surprised on the difference it made. I set up Time Machine on my MBP. It all worked seamlessly with very little set up.

    Bonus: This is cosmetically the best looking router. My wife approves and it almost could pass as some sort of white vase or canister. Now I don't have to hide in some cabinet.

    Airport Time capsule 2Tb

    Another excellent Apple product, I needed a seamless back up solution and fix to months of wireless woes. 10 minutes after unpacking it I was up and running and performing my initial back up from my new iMac.
    It also solved my wi fi problems, neighbouring wi fi routers were making air space very limited and I frequently had annoying drop out with problems reconnecting, now I have a 5 Ghz multi channel connection which is very quick and very reliable.
    The Time Capsule looks uber cool and runs silently, just as well as it is in the bedroom just a few feet away from my head on the bed side units!
    An excellent and very worthwhile purchase!

    Perfect in Every Way!! Can't Say Enough!!!!

    I could honestly go on and on about this product. My internet provider had given me a wireless gateway which was supposed to be a wireless N router with all the latest features, and it was horrible - slow speeds, poor wireless signal, and constant problems with things like Air Play. So, I went back to using a four year old Time Capsule which drastically improved speeds and instantly solved the Air Play problems. Then, I decided to purchase a new Time Capsule. The positive experiences began with the physical look and design of the unit and continued from there. This Time Capsule literally doubled my internet speed, now actually giving me the speed I'm paying for - yes even wirelessly. Wi-Fi range has been improved to be even more impressive - even without any 802.11 AC devices on my network. Back-ups with Time Machine are fabulous also. I did an initial back-up of almost 400 GB in around six hours - wirelessly! Yesterday we were streaming a TV show on Apple TV while my daughter streamed a show on her iPad. At the same time, we were performing an initial wireless back-up and streaming music via Air Play in another room, and everything worked perfectly. I would have been confident to make a FaceTime call or anything else on top of that too. Now obviously as you can tell, we have a very fast internet connection - over 100 MBPS, but still we never realized those speeds over Wi-Fi until getting this new Time Capsule. This and the Airport Extreme are the only routers I ever recommend to people. I exchanged my internet provider's gateway for a non-Wi-Fi device and I couldn't be happier! Love it!:)

    Outstanding Product

    I live in a building that has a lot of disturbance. Upgrading to this router solved the issues of spotty service that I was having with a Netgear router. Configuration was performed using my Phone 5S. My pings are now consistent and never get any timeouts. Love it!

    Great Router, Love the Extra Features.

    I actually purchased both an Airport Express, and the Airport time Capsule, and couldn't be happier. I put the Express down stairs and the Time Capsule in my room to extend the Wi-fi network upstairs. It has worked flawlessly so far, and the speed upstairs is a big plus. Time Machine works great on my new Macbook Pro, but the biggest selling point for me was the USB port on the back of the Time Capsule. I reformated an old WD 1 Tb drive I had for my old PC and plugged it into the back of the Time Capsule. I love being able to upload files from my two Macs or my Moms PC to the drive over my Wi-fi network, It's like my households own personal Cloud. Would highly recomnmend to anyone on the market. Thumbs up Apple.
