    Very very good

    Has the second generation time capsule before and upgraded to this as my network was getting weaker and weaker.
    I had about 3.5 mbits speed in my office before and I have an airport express to help me with that. After this upgrade I still have to use the airport express but speed incased to 12 mbits.. An amazing improvement.
    In the rest of my apartment I get speeds between 30 to 80 mbits. Great improvement.
    The backups are much more stable and very much faster ( guess due to increased speed).
    Can recommend anyone to upgrade or buy it for the first time.

    Best router I ever had

    It took 10 minutes to make it work (including unpacking, plugging and typing in passwords for new network from my iPad). Network speed is amazing: both on WiFi and gigabit LAN ports. Internal disks are mapped as network shares so you can easily access from any mac/*nix/windows machines.
    The only minor issue I've met: plastic legs at the bottom are sliding on my table so I have to place the device in secured position to avoid accidental drop.

    Great Upgrade!

    Originally I had the older model of time capsule. This upgrade was certainly satisfying! Set-up is easy, automatically backs up my computer and the internet is much faster!

    Time Capsule is Great!

    Install was a breeze, set up in less than 5 mins. Absolutely flawless. Great value for the money.

    Easy to setup, works perfectly, nice design

    Great value for money, very easy setup, works well with Time Machine, wifi seems very fast despite not having any 802.11ac devices yet. Superb design, doesn't look out of place in media room compared to previous 3 antenna router. 3rd party external hard disk connected via Ethernet and visible with no other work required.
    Couldn't recommend more highly.

    Amazing!

    I had a top of the line Linksys router before I upgraded. It would get chocked up, and it would reduce my bandwidth to a crawl if I had more than a few devices on the network. The Airport Time Capsule gives me amazing speed, even with over 20 devices connected!

    Replaces 1TB TC.

    Connect, plug it in and it just works. I have 4 AP expresses on my network for music and 3 of 4 were recognized right away. Fourth I unplugged and plugged back and it showed up in AP Utilty.

    Although not faster because I don't have wifi AC equipped devices, the connection was much better.
    Time Machine BU of my iMac took only 2+20. The old TC took over nite.

    Backing up MBAir now... Looks fast also.

    Here's hoping that the new iPads, iPhones will have this faster wifi standard

    Great!

    I had one of the earlier time capsules, I bought this to increase speed, needed a larger drive and increase wifi range. Does all the above. A+ Apple.... good job!

    Great Wireless Router

    I just picked this up today as a replacement for my airport extreme gen. 5. Setup was incredibly easy, less than 15 minutes even with the firmware update. I did not even have to reset the airport express that is also on the same network. This is a noticeable improvement in speed over the airport extreme I replaced. The signal beaming seems to be very effective. Glad I purchased this.

    Very impressed

    Bought the new TC 2GB tonight to support 802.11AC on my new MBA when it will arrive early next week. I already have 3 routers at home, 1 from Verizon FIOS and 2 Linksys E1200 as 1 router doesn't cut it in the house.
    Setup was extremely easy, I have a MacPro with no wireless connected to one of the LAN ports, it took ~ 1 min and airport utility popped up and it took ~ 2 min to go through all menus and set the router up. It automatically set up in bridge mode which is exactly what I wanted, as I want all my computers on the same subnet.
    Performance on my MacPro (wired) appears to be slightly better.

    So far very happy with my purchase, now I can't wait to get my new MBA to have a real speedy wireless network ...

    Fantastic Router

    Excellent speeds and range. I have a very tight area in same area as my AV equipment (not optimal for range) and I get full bars all over my house in N-speeds. Once new MacBook Pros come out, I will get full advantage of ac, but still with internet speeds at 55/8, I'm sure the difference will not be fully realized. The one hiccup I did have was when I had everything hardwired with a 8 port switch, I needed to renew the DHCP lease, and now everything over ethernet is working just like before. Another excellent piece of hardware from the best!

    Excellent upgrade from previous generation

    This is my fourth Time Capsule since they were first introduced and, so far, it is definitely the best. Significant improvement in both WiFi range and speed. Right now I am getting throughput of 450 on 802.11n with my MacBook Pro Retina 15 and right next to it am getting 850 on the new .ac standard with my new MacBook Air 11. Also the form factor and design are top-notch. The TC looks very impressive on my desk and I heartily endorse springing for the new model.

    Great Range, super easy to set up...

    I tried FOUR different routers to replace my 500gig time capsule to get a better signal. No luck. I was about to settle for the n spec dark knight, when this week, BANG a new TC. I'll try it, I thought and I'm glad I did. Better range, no dead spots and 2 tb backup for $299 instead of separate router and hd for $280. Thanks again Apple.

    Spectacular Bandwidth Improvement!

    I am getting ~4x bandwidth improvement close by but we have a 100 year old house with wire mesh lath and plaster walls and this new antenna array appears significantly less able to penetrate these walls than the last generation Airport/Time Capsule.

    Very good but a bit unattractive

    For functionality and utility I have given this five stars. it is really easy to set up and get working, and the backup works incredibly fast in my view. Please note though, that it is a router and so you still need an ADSL modem (or whichever you use for your broadband) to plug the Airport into. For some ISPs they will lock their modem down so you can not use it in bridge mode, which restricts some of the functionality of the Airport router. However, the Airport is strong and fast and I am really happy with it.

    With regards to the looks, this is bigger than I thought it would be. The footprint is quite small but this is a lot taller than I had imagined and as such it does look rather odd, so be aware of that if it is important to you. Also note that for UK prices this is very expensive indeed.

    For functionality and utility, this is fantastic and for me I am very happy with my purchase.

    Super Fast! Awesome

    This worked perfect on my iMac that isn't the new Mac Book Air like some people have been commenting on in the Questions & Answers area for this product. It is super fast, sleek and the smaller foot print is nice to boot. Backs up faster too.

    Possibly too easy to set-up

    I bought this to replace my nearly 5yo Time Capsule (still faithfully working). As such it needed to be given a name and password to match the old one and other than that it went straight to work.

    Things generally feel a little snappier on N 2.4GHz and 5GHz (no new wireless-ac devices yet, but soon). I started new backups for the Macs without any real concern for data roll-back disruption as the old TC is still able to be plugged back in.

    My only concern is that it didn't need me to fiddle and play with it to get it working optimally. I did run iStumbler and Speedtest to check out the channels and performance to give some level of technical poking and prodding.
