    The best yet!

    We have an older 500G time capsule and a 2TB. This 3TB replaced both and has much better range. Setup is the easiest I've ever encountered. If you want a headache buy something from the competition. If you want the best and easy setup buy this.

    Simply Brilliant

    I purchased this product and I am delighted with its performance, my system is complicated, so it has not been so easy for me, this is not a result of The product, but the fact I am using a Sky Hub, the Sky hub is where the problem makes it more complicated

    Perfect except the packaging. HOLD FROM THE BOTTOM

    Its amazing the amount of effort that goes into the packaging design of the product. Its so well done, but I have a bone to pick. I opened it at work, showed it to colleagues and put it back in the box. When I got home, and was grabbing my bag and a couple of other things with the time capsule it dropped out of the box within hours of receiving it. Its top heavy and you have to hold the box from the bottom. It got scuffed up and I had to push the bottom black piece in, but it works. Just annoyed.

    Otherwise the device is great. Much improved wireless, and time machine works great. Easy to setup share and well worth the money.

    Great for amateurs

    Although i feel i know a lot about gadget I am not very knowledgable about setting up wifi networks. First up the setup is very easy. I setup using my Macbook air.

    Once setup i have noticed a massive performance increase across all my device from the superhub and the range is simply unbelievable! I used to have problems in my house with range but they are completely gone now, which is great. I was even able to add a WPS printer really easy too, from the base station menu, exactly what i was hoping for :-) All in all I am very happy and would strongly recommend this solution to anyone, regardless of skill level.

    Easy setup, works well

    Coverage is much better than last time capsule.
    Vertical design takes up less space, only hiccup is unplugging the Cat cables.
    Overall 5 stars.

    Airport Extreme - 3TB Blitzkreig..

    This is one of the best and fastest router and Time Capsule in one product I have owned. My Belkin 1200ac is now history. The product setup took 2 minutes after I took it out of the box and connected the power and internet cable to it.

    It immediately updated the firmware and asked if I wanted to connect all other devices. I hit yes and it was all over in 2 minutes.

    As a PC user before I went all Mac... this product was a seamless connection for me. My Mac Book pros in the house all seamlessly connected to it. In terms of security the security of the Mac's connectivity to my older router was preserved on this and moved to point to the Airport.

    In conclusion its far easier to plug and really play not like the PCs out there and pundits who want to tweak this and that. However after seeing how my iPads, iPhones, Macs and Mac Book pros connecting instantaneously I was over whelmed. My older backup PC was also a breeze in connecting. None of the 192.. blah blah blah.dot not working stuff and going to Belkin and they routing me to Microsoft blaming software configurations etc etc and after 2 weeks nothing.

    Happy to envangelise this product to all my friends...and family..

    wow

    I bought one. It's very simple, you just need to set a password. If you buy, you never regret. >.<

    Worthy upgrade but flawed packaging

    This is a very well-designed Wi-Fi router and backup device that is extremely easy to set up and to configure both on Macs and Windows. Via the included app, it basically sets itself up automatically after you input your desired Wi-Fi network name and password. There are of course also advanced options which you may set manually if you desire to.

    This Time Capsule performs better than the prior version, even without 801.11ac devices in the network. With 802.11ac devices, it will be even faster.

    This contains more antennas inside the device than prior versions and also incorporates beamforming for faster wifi. The antennas sit higher and off the table top in the device which aids performance as well. When using my wifi network, things are noticeably more speedy than before.

    The design and foot print is also an improvement. It takes up less space on your desk or shelf since it has a smaller footprint, even though it's taller. And, I like the look of it better than prior versions as well.

    I also really like the fact that the built in hard drive can backup more than one computer on the Wi-Fi network, and it does this wirelessly (or wired). Now all the computers in my household can always be backed up with ease!

    Note - Time Capsule has a small fan that constantly spins (even when the internal hard drive is not running) the AirPort Extreme does as well. The fan is not at all loud but is noticeable if you listen close, or the room is very quiet. I wonder if it will get any louder in the long term.

    Another thing to note is the AirPort Extreme can backup wirelessly to an external hard drive plugged in to it and also print to a USB printer as well if you use a USB hub. In other words, you may prefer to get the Airport Extreme instead if you already have an external hard drive. This may save you some money.

    A note about the product box: be very careful opening the box, if you have it at an angle while pulling the lid off, the device will fall out and could be damaged. Also, after unboxing it, you cannot replace the base of the box because it will get stuck inside the box and be very difficult to remove after that. I recommend you put the base in sideways if you want to store the box. You will see what I mean after you get this item.

    In summary, Apple has another winner in this latest version of the Time Capsule! This is a worthy upgrade from prior versions, even if you don't yet have any 802.11ac devices since it also works with 802.11a/b/g and n devices, and you will be ready for any future 802.11ac device that you may get, which is the new standard.

    caused retina display to flicker

    The moment I hooked this up, my MBP w/retina started flickering so badly I could hardly see what was on the screen. Shut off wi-fi, problem went away. Turned it back on, intense flickering again. Not sure where the problem lies, but for now I've gone back to my old time capsule.

    No Go Right Out of The Box

    Would not work, but issued an immediate message, "hard drive needed to be repaired." Enough time wasted, sending it back and not having it replaced.

    Brilliant, couldn't be happier so far

    Did i NEED it? Not sure, had a airport extreme and express (to extend range) in home and decided to replace both with this 3TB 2013 Time Capsule and have an easy backup drive built in, so far excellent. Range seems to be way better, set up was a breeze, just left everything at default settings (didn't mess with channels, or 5gz) and so far getting my paid for speeds throughout the house on speedtest on iPhone 5's, macbook pro retina, air, iPads etc. The time machine backup is also amazingly a breeze, backing up 3 different machines, don't have to partition the drive based on which machine, you just tell it to backup to the time capsule and it figures it out for you. Love it. One small minor wish, Apple make a BLACK one please, it would blend in with people's components better like the apple tv, but whatever.

    Redesign Rocks

    Love it, love it, love it!

    So much faster and the range is insane. I can get a signal a block away!

    And all the extra storage, Thanks Apple....keep up the great work.

    More more more...

    Easy to setup, works well

    I found this extremely easy to setup and it is working well. I am really happy with the Bonjour printing support. On my Mac it worked without any changes. On my Windows 7 box, I downloaded the Bonjour driver and then it worked.

    The time machine backup is going to take 18 hours for starters but after that I'm looking forward to having constant backups on the mac.

    This unit is larger than I expected, about the size of a brick. It is quite heavy, probably from the hard drive within.

    Overall, I'm happy with this purchase.

    Nice looking, fast wifi.

    Same size as the Apple TV, so you can stack them, fast wifi, but still USB 2.
