    Worst Apple product I have ever seen!

    First router I have ever bought, they say it sets right up. Well, after 2 nights of trying EVERYTHING on this planet, reading for a million hours and it just doesn't work! I think I'm going to go out back and use it for target practice! After having a bad iPad experience, and now this, I would have to say I believe Apple is going downhill!

    set up with sky anytime + within minutes!

    I have an Apple Airport Extreme connected to my Virgin broadband router ( wifi turned off ) and i have just bought an Apple Airport Express to connect to & extend my network. I have used the ethernet port from the Express to use with my Sky box for anytime + and I managed to set it up in under 5 minutes. I did concider the Sky anytime + wireless connector, but for an extra £19 i can get the Apple Airport Express and extend my wireless network as well, so it was a no brainer!!

    Best £79 pound iv spent!!!

    Highly recommended!!!

    Poor wi:fi signal

    I am a big fan of apple products, but this AirPort Express is just bad.
    Easy set up, beautiful and fancy. I bought it for my apartment on campus but it did not surprised me. My University's wi:fi is more powerful than this router, even when I sit with my mac close to this router. $99 was not worth it, I prolly just going to buy the Extreme base station and sell this product on Amazon.

    Fantastic!!!

    I was really worried about using this as a primary router (with Bigpond Thomson modem/router) but it is working flawlessly and was an absolute breeze to set up! Airplay and Airprint are both fabulous features too! 'It just works' love it!

    This pains me, but....

    I'm a big Apple fan - iMac (2), MacBook Pro (2), iPad (2), iPhone (2), the whole works.

    I purchased two of these when they came out, primarily because the ethernet out port enabled me to connect my DVR to to Internet without having to wire to a pretty difficult spot. (The second AirPort Express I bought for my parents, to replace a generic cheap wireless router.)

    I mostly use my AirPort Express to stream music to my stereo using AirTunes. I had been using a previous generation AirPort Express for this, and it worked flawlessly. Never any drops or glitches. I've got a Time Capsule and two other AirPort Expresses in my house, and they all work well.

    The 2012 AirPort Express is constantly dropping from my network, even though it is about 10 feet from the AirPort Extreme, in a straight sight line. My father reports that the same thing is happening with his, noticeable even though he is only surfing the Web. His serves as the primary router, connected directly to his cable modem.

    I returned mine for another model, which the Apple Store graciously provided even though I was beyond the return time, but it is more of the same. I'm hoping for a firmware update that will fix this; there is a lot to like about the new model.

    You can see that others are having this problem by checking the Apple support community for the thread "AirPort Express (2012) drops network connection after ~1 hour...ideas?"

    Easiest router I've ever set up!

    Sure you could probably save twenty bucks on some d link router. However, this router was so simple to setup its totally worth it! It took like three steps. Plug in, imac detect it, then name router, DONE! Also and this may just be my expierence but I noticed my wifi was significantly faster.

    Wow! And I'm not paid to write this...

    I literally opened the new Airport Extreme box and plugged in 2 cords and wall-laa its done. I never used to get wifi in my 2 story house... Now I get full coverage wifi all the way to my mail-box and the routher is in the basement! Excellent product!

    It even has airstream for your music? Wireless from your phone to speakers in your house?
    Its sooo legit..... HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. (and yes im screaming it at you) for $108 at best-buy you absolutely can NOT go wrong.

    Reason for buying.... Just bought a new Macbook Pro "15.4" non-retina display and needed wifi considering my whole house is hard wired. All I did was connect a ethernet cord from the moden to the wifi now I have hardwire for the whole house and wifi for friends or laptops that are in the house and it doesnt even slow the connection! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! BUY IT

    Air port Express

    Simply brilliant, just switched on the wifi on the mac, found the airpot express.. let the airpot utility do the rest to link the extreme base station and the airport express .. a few minutes later... the whole house is now covered with internet, I can stream music the TV surround sound system via the output from the express, and connect the Humax TV box to BBC iplayer... perfect!

    Good Device

    Bought this to replace the router function of my virgin super hub. Easy to setup through my iMac, took literally a few minutes. Solved the constant wifi drops from the VM Superhub. Overall great little device.

    Cons: Bit pricey and also wireless signal not extremely strong for even my 2 Bed Apartment, but enough for me to use in lounge.

    Excellent

    I replaced a router with the Airport Express. Fantastic results in speed and reliability. I no longer have Wifi dropping out and seems a lot fast loading. So easy to install.

    Excellent product

    Just bought the airport express to replace an old router. Very easy to set up, the only drawback I found was trying to create a guest network. Instructions are very general, was not able to set one up. Not a big deal but still a bit disappointed. All in all a great product and would definitely recommend it

    Fantastic product

    Very easy set up.
    Significant wireless improvement over my old device.
    Works superbly with all my devices.
    On top of that, can enjoy the benefits of AirPlay.

    Phenomenal Upgrade!

    Love the AIRPORT EXPRESS!! It is an excellent upgrade with much more flexibility than the old AIRPORT EXPRESS, plus it provides a turbo boost to my home wireless network when I paired it with a Fifth Gen. AIRPORT EXTREME BASE STATION. I'm getting 5mbps and greater download and 2+mbps upload from a network that usually delivered only half that speed, at best! My network IPS is also wireless to my home from a nearby tower so download/upload speed was not consistent and often sluggish due to bandwidth overload at the tower. However, for some reason that I can't quite fathom, my all-APPLE wireless network seems to have solved that problem once and for all! So I am a happy Apple fanboy, once again! Oh, and one more thing. It has extended the range of the old network by at least 75%, if not greater. So do yourself a favor, and install an all-APPLE wireless network in your home and join the APPLE Happy Club! (No, I do NOT work for APPLE nor do I own stock, unfortunately, lol).

    Less options than previously

    I expected it to be the best to play music with airplay, but the output level is too loud for my external loudspeaker with built-in amplification.

    In addition to the bad side, the level of Wifi can not be tuned anymore in Airport v6.x (9even if it was announced possible in the online description)! and whereas it was possible in previous Airport v5.x.

    So easy to configure... because there is less to configure !
