    AirPort Time Capsule - 2TB Fantastic!

    Living in a new build three floored house it was hit and miss at times when i would have a wifi signal on the top floor of my house, having tried all sorts of bits and bobs to improve the signal i finally dig deep and got one of these. The setup was super quick but had to work out how to turn off the wifi signal from my sky hub took a bit of time.
    I decided to try a Airport Extreme to boost it even better and i can now say there is fantastic wifi all over the house.
    My biggest criticism would be the price and the 6 hours it took to do a back up but apart from that its all good.

    Time Capsule (replaced 3 times)

    The Time Capsule (2T) has been nothing but a nightmare. You just need to negative reviews to understand why I am rating it as a lemon (disconnecting, slow to backup, unreliable, unaccessible etc.) As for the people that are finding it a true miracle, it would be interesting to know how long these people have had their unit and to which product they are comparing it to. I have two other different hard disks and they work much better than this! I should have known better that to buy something that does wi-fi and backup. I am finding that it just doesn't work!

    Poor performance

    Wifi signal is horrible, I have 2 of them to have signal in my home.
    Performance is horrible, I tried to use it for iTunes, but due to performance issues iTunes will not download to that location.
    Backup doesn't work on the Timecapsule due to performance issues.
    I used the time capsule as router.... Well it brings back old times, just like a dial up connection..
    Apple TV streaming.... nah, forget it.
    Apple support??? HA, I would be better of asking my wife.

    This all on a stable internet connection of 200Mbits. Got my old router back and my old NAS, all problems are over.

    Worst external disk I ever had

    Constant connection problems with my Macbook air in any kind of OS for several months, no solution. Go buy something else, doesn't worth it.

    Fast and rock solid

    Very happy with this purchase. Very very fast, and the HD I've connected to it works flawlessly.

    Keeps needing a restart

    Macbook Pro, iPad and iPhone 6 are all fine on the network as they use the 5Ghz version.... iPhone 4s keeps losing network all the time at the 2.4Ghz keeps needing a restart. Turn off and back on again and it works again. Never had this problem once when using the BT home hub. Glad that the Macbook has got a wireless backup drive but disappointed in the amount of times I need to restart it.

    I had a Linksys router and separate Seagate backup drive. As a router the Time Capsule blows the Linksys away! My Linksys router picked up interference and lost its signal whenever I used my microwave, and I had to reconnect to my network whenever I brought my Mac Air out of sleep mode. The Time Capsule never drops, has no issues with the microwave, and all my devices automatically pick it up. Time Machine make back ups a piece of cake and there’s never a need to connect to an external drive. I just turn on Time Machine. Set up was a breeze – only required a couple of mouse clicks.

    I was an Apple doubter for a longtime. But I am sold! They are way more than a mobile phone company!

    Hands down, best stylish and fastest router.

    Now this is router quality you get for the price even if it's Apple! Nothing compares to this which Inlove most about using the time capsule for it. Wish Microsoft thought of this at the time because this is a huge leap forward to making the most of my experience. Speed of light, I can be as far as I want in my home and the range is still perfect! My neighbors are impressed how they can connect from their homes to.

    Very Pleased

    Hooked up my new TC and all of my devices found the new network easily. I'm router phobic and was dreading the switch over to a new router but it went off without a hitch - well except for one device - my HP eprinter simply refused to find the new network. Once I went in and manually entered the network name, the printer found it immediately. Everything is up and running perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased.

    Love my TC

    The time capsule has improved my productivity immensely in terms of storage, retrieval and creating files non-linearly. Love the fact that I can go back in time and get different versions of files without saving them in my folder using version 1,2,3... Also when my graphics card went I was able to recover the whole system exactly as it was before the crash (unfortunately crashes sometimes do happen even to Apple). Everyone should have one!

    Great product oozes quality, well packed and oh so simple to set up and run

    My original ATC was full. I decided to invest and purchased through the store. Delivery took 2 days which was very good. Well presented looks the parts and took 5 mins to set up. First new back up took 4 hours by cable now its running wireless with my Mac and Mac Book Pro. Would recommend this product.

    Beautifully designed, looks smart, excellent performance, automatic backup which is what I like most and server level hardware make me feel more confident and reliable. Signal strength is just amazing and speed ..i love my iPhone, Macbook Pro & iPad more, it has boosts their performance as well. All apple family.
    Apple products are space age technology and you are missing if you dont own this or any of their products.

    Airport Express/Extreme

    I love the Apple Airport Express and Extreme for handling an additional Mac, MacBook Pro and Netflix. They're great. However, I have issues with the Time Capsule as being too slow and temperamental. I prefer hard wired backups. SuperDuper updates in less than 2 minutes on two USB 3.0 drives and the Time Machine works great too.

    Excellent Router and Back-Up

    Great and simple user experience. Plug it in, select it on your computer, assign password, done. Even though it was big (200+ Gigs) first back up over wi-fi, that went seamlessly in approx. four hours.

    Time Capsule saves me data on my cell phone carrier: Previously my kids on the other end of the house would lose the wi-fi signal and their phones would revert to cellular data. With the AirPort time Capsule they now get 3 or 4 bars and wi-fi is never dropped. Download speeds are fine, have not even bothered hard wiring the unit to my 5K Retina iMac as originally planned.

    Not ready for prime time

    It works well when it works, but almost daily, often more than once a day, the time machine fails with a variety of error messages: disk not available, not enough space on the disk, changed identity (what could that mean?), or just "failed".

    It's WAY too much trouble for the price.

    Time Capsule disappointing

    I purchased a new Airport Time Capsule, and it was relatively easy to set up. It completed a first backup on one computer. So far so good. The next day, I tried to set up a second computer for backup, but the backup disk could not be accessed. Got the message "internal drive needs repair". Having the backup disk crash after just one day of use is unsettling. I now have very little faith in this product as a backup option.

    This rating is for the Apple Airport extreme

    I decided to buy the Apple Airport extreme instead of the Time Capsule because I wanted to add my own high-quality hard drive.
    2Tb Samsung's are awesome factory OEM not the newer drives which are actually manufactured by Seagate but branded under the Samsung name
    I am happy with the performance of the AirPort Extreme. The router speed is good and the backup works very well with my Time Machine plus I can share data stored on the back up drive with my macs iPhone iPad (using GoodReader) and PC clients

    worst apple product

    ....two hours of trying and the airport time capsule I bought just won't connect, sadly the instructions that where supplied where just so vague it was laughable, while I like apple products, this has to be the worst experience I have had with an apple product, sadly its going back to the shop

    So disappointed. Yes it works great as a backup storage. Yes it has great connectivity. Wanted both backup and to be able to move files over to as well. Could have bought another brand 2T wifi hard drive for less money that would allow me to back up AND store files. Why does apple make some things so difficult? Just like you cannot move photos to iCloud. People really want to save their photos in other places beside a flash drive and or on laptops.

    Digital Saver!!

    I love this router. My signal has become more stable and stronger. I now have access to my Wi-Fi everywhere in the house. The time capsule is working seamlessly and I couldn't be happier. Is it expensive? Yes however the payoff has been well worth it.
