    UGH-MAY-ZING!!!!!

    I honestly couldn't believe how fast my internet became after purchasing the Airport Time Capsule and then it looks so sleek and beautiful in design sitting in my living room waiting for me to store data. I absolutely love it.

    Out of the box & working in 5mins

    We have a Virgin Media Superhub. We set this to Modem mode and connected the first AirPort Time Capsule this was quick & simple with the the instructions on-screen via the AirPort utility of the iMac. Once the set-up was complete my daughter set-up her AirPort Time Capsule via her Macbook Pro bridging from the first Airport Time Capsule giving it another name & pass key / word. Again this was simple and the whole process took around 15-20min.

    No other company makes this process so simple it just works.

    Everything gone

    Do NOT trust this product with your files.

    My Time Capsule has been generating error messages for the past week. This weekend, I followed its suggestion to rebuild due to some sort of corrupted directory.

    One hour later, every single file is gone.

    Great performance

    I have purchased about a month ago to sync all of my apple products at Home. Wifi speed went up almost 10 times faster than regular router from cable company. Moreover, I have been using time capsule not only back up drive, but also home files sharing for all of music, movies, and doc. Time capsule brought much more options than what I expected. Strongly recommend.

    Great product

    I have an iMac from 2006, a Mac mini and ipads. By adding this one i could backup the old machine, got a better looking faster acces point and it even shares files. I do not need to get a separate server. Incredibly easy to install, but still includes the important safety features. Great product - thank you Apple

    Great but not a home run!

    The Time Capsule is a great router and an excellent backup device. It would be perfect if Apple simply made it support DLNA like every other router on the face of the earth! This way you could stream to your Apple TV / Smart TV device from its file share.

    very disappointed

    i have bought the air port time capsule to replace seagate media center.
    the seagate was a loot better.
    i was able to access it from tv without computer and able to do east tm backup.

    really bad that its not accessible from tv-dlna or iPhone app.
    cant access to my go pro video easily like the seagate.

    apple should add dlna support and iOS app to make this killer

    Huge improvement on coverage

    Have owned the TC for about 6 months now and loving it. Wireless range is significantly improved as well as slight increase in download speed. Our unit supports 2 apple Tv's, 2 iPads and 2 MB Pro's without a hiccup, most times streaming simultaneously. Can't wait to try the MIMO architecture once we updated some devices. Well done Apple.

    Excellent router. Good backup storage. Poor file sharing.

    I've bought it 2 months ago.
    Flawless installation/configuration.
    Reliable and fast as a router.
    Good a storage for TimeMachine for my Mac Mini (ethernet) and MacBook Pro (WiFi).

    However file sharing is disappointing due to too aggressive spin down time. Disk goes to sleep in less than 30 seconds after last access! Streaming media from it may lead to 'funny' pauses in playback if your player buffers more than few seconds. Streaming stuff to Macs can be painful. Streaming anything to PC is just pointless. And no 'spin down time' option in configuration :(

    It also reported bogus (hopefully) problems with the hard drive. After restart it's green again.

    Considering all that I've decided to buy proper NAS solution, leaving Capsule as backup-only device with no file sharing at all.

    Time Capsul Quick Setup

    Just purchased the time capsul today. Took me less than 5 minutes to set up and I didn't even read the instructions! Speed seems pretty fast, definately faster than my old dlink.

    ANOTHER BRILLIANT BIT OF KIT !

    My TC has been running faultlessly for about two months now; it is very cool and quiet. As with previous Airport devices it was quick and simple to set up and works well with a host of wired and wireless devices all over the house. I am very pleased indeed with this product which I use in conjunction with a Vigor 120 Ethernet modem.

    Nice piece of kit

    Reviewed the product online, went to the apple store, 2 minute chat with the salesman, drove home and connected time capsule as the booklet said.5 minutes total
    Job done. Backing up now brilliant.

    Is the coldest running time capsule yet

    Yes pleased with this model, easy to setup and runs quiet and cool compared to old models. Interested to find out if this generation uses less energy. Highly recommended.

    Good product and easy to setup

    The Linksys router at home died on me. It was time to get a new router. I was happy with my old Airport so I thought getting this one with reported speed and range improvement would be good features to have. Apple didn't disappoint.

    With my iPad and with Aiport Utility, setup was easy and took a very short while. The purported speed and range improvement was evident. Worth the wait and the money spent.

    The existing Aiport Time Capsule took a few minutes to integrate and extend the wifi coverage to the 2f of the house. I recommend this product to anyone contemplating getting a new router

    Not reliable

    I had an older version (2012) of the 2TB Air Port Time Capsule (the square flat one) and it just failed without warning after about a year and a half. Took it to the Genius Bar for diagnosing and they asked me "you have this all backed up, right?" ha ha ha, the Time Capsule WAS the back up!!

    I could feel the unit was working (could feel heat and hum) but no light on the front. No way to recover data. It just bricked one day. Had to pay to replace the whole thing, no recovery, no apple care, no replacement.

    I'd recommend another brand based on their inability to even apologize that all my archived data just disappeared.

    Packaging Stinks

    I haven't used the product as designed but I wil say the design of the package is conducive to dropping the unit when opening. Even after i knew the limitations, I still had issues and almost dropped it after placing it back in the package until i was ready to use the product.

    Died within a week

    Initial Time Machine back-up took 12 hours via Ethernet (this is recommended as Wi-Fi would have taken days). Once set up on Wi-Fi, backing up worked for a week. The next attempt to back-up revealed that the Time Capsule had corrupted and even Disk Utility couldn't see it, let alone repair it (Apple Forums suggested the corruption may have been been due to 'interference'), so I lost all my Time Machine back-ups. I also didn't notice much improvement in speed of devices on Wi-Fi, so would be suspicious of the '3x' faster claim.

    Of course, your Time Capsule may not corrupt at all...

    A real improvement

    I had the older flat version of time capsule and this is a definite improvement. Its a breeze to set up and produces a very fast WiFi connection. The automatic back up facility works really well - I found it was a bit clunky in the older model and didn't always work - but then Apple do an excellent job of continuous improvement and the new time capsule is no exception. (and I don't work for them :-) ).

    I bought this thinking it was a 2TB wireless hard drive

    Went in to the Apple Store and bought it.
    I figured out how to load files directly.
    I love how it backs up everything.
    What I don't like is how many times it freezes when going into Time machine and having to reboot MBA.

    Fastest Router I have found to date.

    I I was a little skeptical about this purchase at first. I have been a Netgear and Linksys user for many years. I was using a Netgear router R6300 and thought that this was the best you could buy. I plugged in the Time Capsule and apple computer found it right away. Setup was easy which took about 5 minutes and I was back online. This doubled my speed of my wireless devices and the range covered my entire 1800sqft home. I like the fact that you do not need to have a Mac to use this and can set it up using an IPhone or IPad with Airport Utility.
