    Simultaneous dual-band 802.11n.

    AirPort Express lets Wi-Fi-enabled devices connect to your network on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless bands. Which means every connected device automatically uses the best band available for the fastest possible performance.

    Stream music with AirPlay.

    AirPlay takes the music from the iTunes library on your computer or iOS device and sends it wirelessly to any connected stereo or speakers in your home (audio cable sold separately). Play music on one set of speakers — or if you have more than one AirPort Express connected to speakers, play your music from iTunes on all of them at the same time.

    Print wirelessly from any room.

    On the back of AirPort Express is a USB port that’s made for your printer. Just plug it in and instantly it’s like having a printer in every room. And since AirPort Express works with Mac and PC, everyone in the house can take advantage of one centrally available printer.

    Compatibility and security.

    AirPort Express is compatible with devices using the 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, and 802.11n specifications. So no matter what Wi-Fi device you’re using, it will work with AirPort Express. AirPort Express also features a built-in firewall to protect your network from malicious Internet attacks. The firewall is automatically turned on, so you don’t have to do a thing.

      fantastic upgrade

The new airport express adds many of the features previously only available to the Extreme. A Ethernet port as well to hook up to a wired computer or a switch is finally included as well. Very easy to set up and works perfectly. I'm in 800SQ FT home though. anything over you should still consider an Extreme for the range.

      Great Router?

      Knowing the extremes Apple, Inc. goes to, this is once again one great product of Apple. I had a Linksys router, which almost cost my house to be in flames. The Knowing the extremes Apple, Inc. goes to, this is once again one great product of Apple. I had a Linksys router, which almost cost my house to be in flames. The Linksys must have overheated and caught on fire - burning a hole in my cherry wood desk that has my 'Apple Collection' including vintage Macs. I would have died if anything would have happened to them. I saw online about this product and was persuaded to purchase it! It is so small, fits perfectly on my desk, and lastly became well fit in with my Apple Collection! The setup was quick and easy; Any old person could set it up! Great job again, Apple! :)

      Better than the last one!

      It is worth the price tag and to be honest, it is better than the previous AirPort. Easy to set up and working flawlessly.

      Drops constantly

      This thing is terrible. I use it to extend my wireless network and it drops the connection on a semi daily basis. Have to do a hard reset.

And even then, both Apple airport utility apps, both on my iPhone 6 and on my MacBook Pro fail to find the airport express. I have to reset them on average 12 Times before the airport app finds the airport express. Even then, when I go through the set up procedure it errors-out 90% of the time. Most frustrating product I have ever purchased - except for maybe iTunes, which cuts off songs before they're done playing, then moves onto the next song. Apple needs to wake up and start remedying their failures in a timely manner - they're getting a name as being 'the lesser of two evils' as compared to competing products.

      Lacks Features and Web UI, Overpriced

Ok I know it has AirPlay but bluetooth is a basic thing nowadays specially on routers that can stream media. - Web UI. Any $30 home router has a built-in web interface, this one needs the AirPort utility application installed on your PC or Apple devices. It's really inconvenient to have to depend on the AirPort Utility in order to be able to configure it. - The WiFi coverage is OK but not the best for a $99 router. Conclusion: It does it's job and works OK, however, it's really overpriced considering the features it has and the ones it lacks.
