    Amazing Print Server Capabilities

    The router works amazing as a print server for the small business world. We were able to quickly setup Xerox and Canon printers, which made the process of network printer amazingly simple. Love this machine!

    Excellent APEx upgrade from my older APExtreme

    Huge Apple product fan and have been using APExpress, APEtreme, and Applt TV for many years now and decided to upgrade to the newer, smaller foot print, APExtreme. Without a doubt, its has increased my local range along with faster data transmission times. The setup was 10x easier than I thought it would be, since my old system is WPA2 with every peripheral secured, but I just plugged it in, booted up my Mac and Airport Utility software, and it walked me through migrating my old systems settings over to the new one, AMAZING and so SIMPLISTIC! Started to check all my other peripherals and everything was linked to the new APExtreme, no problems.

    Excelent!!!

    I thoroughly read many reviews about the performance of the Airport Extreme and was skeptical even at the time of purchase. Had read that it did not communicate well with older versions of the Airport Express (i have two) so I also bought one of those just in case... But then just out of the box connected all of them (Airport Extreme the two older AExpress, the new one, all to different stereos throughout the house)to a single glitch during installation or lost signal in the month and a half since I installed my network. I can say that am really happy how Apple products work together...

    So Far So Good!!!!

    Just installed my new Airport Extreme and it is much stronger then 5th Gen. I tested both routers at same time in the worst part of my house.

    Results:
    5th Gen: 18MB down/3.98MB up
    6th Gen: 38MB down/4MB up

    Will retest 6th gen again later tonight when people get home and our node is stressed. Stay tuned.

    Amazing router

    I just bought this AirPort Extreme today took me less than 10 minutes to set up, it replaced an AirPort Extreme 4th gen. and a airport express also old my house is 3000 sq ft and before I was having issues on the far side of the house now it's a solid reception everywhere, did I mention my macs are old one is a 10 year old iMac the other is a 24 inch mac and one note book they all hooked without any problems, at first I was getting a message that my airport software was old but I ignore the note and my old mac began to configure the new router without any problems. This machines are amazing.

    Huge performance increase over 3rd Gen Extreme!

    I was reluctant to purchase the latest version of Airport Extreme. Upon finally getting one, I was very pleasantly surprised! Big range increase and a very noticeable difference in throughput! With no other adjustments but replacing my 3rd Gen MIMO Extreme with the latest, my transmit rate went from 108 to 270. That's more than double! On Time Warner Cable's Extreme 50MBs, I felt a huge power burst in performance. I feel validated in my purchase. If you've been on the fence or struggling with some questionable performance, give this one a try! I think Apple finally got it perfected.

    The best router ..

    After struggling with umpteen Bell and Rogers modems/routers which provided limited coverage we tried DLink. The Dlink router was intermittent so we returned that product. One of my colleagues suggested the AirPort Extreme. So easy to set up and now we finally have coverage everywhere.
    Apple … your products deserve all the accolades.

    Worth every penny

    I've tried several brands of routers and had difficulty with streaming HDTV content and signal strength in remote parts of the house. All those problems are gone now. I added a gigabit switch to plug in several devices including Sonos, VOIP, etc. It all works great.

    Excellent router!! A definite BUY!!

    I have a single story 2500 sq foot house with a separate detached living area (built off the garage), so there's a wide area of coverage needed with older thick walls. We area an apple family - with a dozen clients (iMacs, Mac Books, iPhones, iPads, Apple TVs, PS3, etc.) needing wifi coverage. (I was also using a new Airport Express to extend my network into the detached loft).

    I had upgraded to Time Warner's Ultimate Internet service (50 Mbps), but I was only getting the high speed on an iMac that was physically connected to my old Airport router via ethernet. I was having to reboot my router more than once a day to get the speeds to pick up from horrible to simply passable - Netflix movies would stop streaming - kids were screaming - it wasn't pretty.

    I researched all the new high end AC1900 routers (Netgear Nighthawk R7000, Asus RT-AC68U), and I have to admit I was tempted to finally drop my long term reliance on Apple Airport products. Then I remembered that the Apple Airport had always been so easy to use and I don't need to break into my router to configure it in any non-standard way, so after reading some decent reviews - I went back to my Apple roots and bought the new Airport Extreme (w/AC).

    I don't have any AC clients yet, but I can say this: I was able to swap out the router and have a new network up and running in less than 60 seconds flat. I used the old network name and every device automatically reconnected to the network without having to do anything.

    I am now getting 50 Mbps on my Mac Book Pro (n) - when previously I had only been getting 5 Mbps! The increased range is incredible too - reaching full strength everywhere now where it hadn't before.

    Conclusion - if you're a multiple Apple user like me and have an existing airport that's causing your internet to become sluggish - and your family's patience at it's limits - stop reading about all those other routers and buy this one.

    Best of the best

    Apple released this very well in time when my Linksys E4200 died on me, i thought that was the best router, this is my first apple router and its easy to setup, wide range, better speed and airport utility app compliment everything, if you are serious about your home of work network then don give any second thought, quality never comes cheap.

    Best thing since sliced bread

    We had a 2007 AE and were getting increasingly frustrated with it - lack of range in the 5GHz mode, cutting out when the microwave was used in the 2.4GHz mode (and even on the 2.4GHz band it only barely reached the far corners of the house and not strongly). It wasn't simultaneous dual band, so we had to choose one evil or the other. So, I bit the bullet and bought the new AE and WOW - am I ever glad I did! Our transmit rate is now about 4-5X what it was in any given location and things are generally zippier all round. No more interference from the microwave, either. The older devices work, the newer ones are as fast as can be and the range is wonderful. All good!

    Increased Coverage in My Home, and Improved Video Streaming

    Purchased this unit to replace my 4th generation Airport Extreme. I'm impressed by the increased range in my home. I have this unit placed in my second floor office, and I get increased signal strength as shown in the settings on my Apple TV on the first floor vs. my prior router. I also love the smaller footprint design which takes up less space. And best part of all is the easy setup (can even do it from my iPhone or iPad) using the Airport Utility. Like all Apple products I own, great design, build quality, and hassle-free setup.

    Amazing!

    This replaced my old linksys router. All I can say is WOW! This is leaps and bounds ahead of any other router I've ever used. I actually get 1mb more than I pay for with this router! Being able to set up a guest network is a nice feature also.

    Another Amazing Apple Product!

    I previously had the 4th Generation Airport Extreme (which was just fine), but I upgraded to this new and redesigned 6th Generation Airport Extreme. The speeds are about the same as my old one (60 download / 10 upload), but I have greater range throughout my whole house (even outside, in my garage, front yard and back yard). Setup was very simple and I like the smaller footprint. Thanks Apple.

    Fantastic AEBS Comcast user !!!!!

    i purchased the latest september 2013 model Airport extreme base station and wow setup was super easy on the iMac!! The quality is outstanding the only issue was i had a comcast modem/router that interfered so i called comcast customer service to have the router switched off (which can only be done by phone)!! and i must say Download speeds are at 56mbps and uploads are 15mbps. My PS3 is super fast now:))

    It really is a must buy !! The negative reviews seem to be because they arent very tech smart or their other equipment is faulty modem, computer etc.... not the actual AEBS!

    When i looked for a router it was tough because there is so many but im sooooo glad i bought this.

    EASIEST SETUP EVER

    This has got to be the easiest setup I have ever encountered with a router. It took me longer to route the power cable then it did for me to set up the network. It was quick and easy with the AirPort Utility App on my MacBook Pro and all of my wireless equipment connected immediately.

    This signal strength throughout my house has seen a huge increase. I am just amazed and completely happy with my new AirPort Extreme!!!!!

    If you are in the market for a new AC compliant router I strongly recommend this product. I know it is a bit pricy but similar products from other manufacturers cost just as much.

    Works great!

    Upgraded from Gen4 Airport Extreme. Range is much better and set up with just as easy as normal. Speeds are better on iPad2 and iPhone 4S and excellent on iPhone 5S. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

    'One-Stop-Shop' Top Quality Router

    Bought with scepticism but from a great, knowledgeable, friendly sales person.
    Hooked up my Huawei 4G LTE modem router, through ethernet flawlessly.
    Hooked up my Lian Li USB3 HDD cage with 5 HDD's perfectly.
    Streaming my 2TB movie collection to AppleTV, MacBook Air, iMac without stutter.
    (Library on iMac and media files on external HDD attached to router).
    Using one of the HDD's as time- capsule for my Mac's.

    This unit took me 2 mins to set up and looks so much better than I expected.
    Worth every cent when hooked up like this unit is hooked up.

    I thought Apple had lost me there for a while .... but my new Airport Extreme and new Macbook Air have made it so easy to stay committed.
