    Super easy to setup

    Bought one for the office (and travelling) having had for years the Airport Extreme at home.

    This was super easy to setup via my iPad. Plugged it in to ethernet WAN and power. IPad found it via the settings/wifi and then I could rename it and set a password.

    So easy to setup and use. Thank you !

    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).

    Wow!

    Yesterday I bought the AirPort Express in the Apple Store in Amsterdam. I bought it to extend my wireless network. The installation was almost completely automatic! Just 2 minutes and it was ready! This is really a stunning product, both in terms of usability and design. A 5 star rating isn't even enough!

    Perfect for Fios!

    This is what I needed after trying 3 different routers and 1 antenna to my network. Works seamlessly with Fios!

    Everyman's WiFi Network

    I bought the Airport Express Base Station to replace two older AEs, one extending my network on the 2.4 GHz band and the other extending the network on the 5 GHz band. I plugged the new AE base station in and launched Airport Utility 6.1. Airport Utility detected my existing network and in seconds had configured the new base station to extend my network both the 2.4 and 5 GHz. The only action I had to take was to click the button to update the AE. It could not possibly have been easier. Even the greenest novice should be able to set up a relatively sophisticated wireless network with this combination.

    Apple and HP... Lovely combo...

    I'm not one to write reviews but this is the best wireless station you can buy! The AirPlay is sooo sweet with the right set of 3.5mm jack speakers. I got the Print feature to work using HP ePrint app ( I have an older Photosmart C4280). The app detected the printer. Transferring files to this app from Pages or accessing documents through the supported cloud drives is a breeze! Hit the print button and its good to go! Thank you Apple!

    Easy setup - Fast

    Easy to setup. I successfully connected wirelessly with my apple TV, macbook, 2 iPhones, nook and a netbook. Airstream works great along with the airplay to my apple TV.

    There are over 30+ wireless networks in the area and no problem with interference!!

    Upgrade from the old Airport Extreme (the one shaped like a flying saucer)

    This is an upgrade from my old Airport Extreme (the one shaped like a flying saucer).  I was frustrated by Internet connectivity that was slow with frequent hang ups.  The new Airport Express is a dramatic improvement, connectivity to the Internet on my iPod and iPad is easily twice as fast. Setup using my iPad took about a minute. Signal range is comparable to my old Extreme, easily reaching all rooms in my two bedroom home, and extending out to a deck about eighty feet in the backyard (the Express is near a rear window).  If available, consider a fully warranted, reconditioned Airport Express.  The quality of the design is an additional pleasure.

    Great upgrade!

    Bought this today to because my old express wasn't reaching the back side of the house and did not want to buy the extreme. Hooked it up and used my old settings and then turned the old express into an extender. Took less than ten minutes for everything! Good work Apple!

    Great Addition

    We use several Apple devices in my household. I have an Airport Extreme set up in my office, that alone was great. I will lose 1 bar on the other end of my house, I just installed my new Airport Express in the center of my home ( 2 step process with airport utility) now I have full bars in my entire house. You just cant beat that....
    It has been a great addition to our apple family.

    Better than best

    This thing was a dream to set up. I've been using a Linksys router for years and you have to log onto the Linksys web site based on a hyperlink (192.168.1.1) with an ethernet cable from you computer, and you have to spend quite a bit of time figuring out the many screens with security and network name with passwords and and and and..... I set this thing up in about 2 minutes doing it all on my iPad. Wirelessly. Don't waste your time on another way to hook up to the internet wirelessly, and for the record it does much more than just that.

    Well worth the price!

    I live in a 1 BR condominium and find that the new Airport Express base station perfectly meets my needs. It is sleek, compact, and very easy to setup on a Mac! This unit has exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and performance!

    If you need a good router for a small area, this is the one to buy!

    Well done, Apple!

    Apple Express + Motorola SURFboard 6121

    It's perfect. I have a 1900 square foot home, two floors, and no problems. My Airport express is on the second floor and plenty of wifi coverage across the entire home. I have cable internet so instead of renting from the ISP's, I just bought my own equipment (Motorola SURFboard6121). In combination with my Airport express, it was very easy to set up. I called my ISP first to set up my modem. Do not set things up on your own. Call your ISP. They will be needing your MAC i.d. from your modem to get the process started. Once that was squared away I called Apple and double checked my set up was correct. I'm very excited about my network. I have two iPhone 5's , an iPod 4, iPad 2, MacBook PRO, PS3 and a Wii. Even with all of this equipment, I have no problem obtaining fast internet speed. Thank you Macintosh.

    FANTASTIC!

    This router replaced my Belkin router that I only had for a few months. It would always drop its connection and Airplay would never work so I had to keep unplugging it to restart it. With Apples AirPort Express I no longer have these problems. My Internet is always connected and Airplay is always there when I need it. Thanks Apple!

    Skeptic from Reviews

    After reading so many reviews, I was a bit skeptic but I figured I have 14 days to try it then return if I didn't like it, so here it goes...

    MY STORY:

    First of all I am using this device as a router. After buying, I did the setup (very easy by the way) and immediately started using it with the AirPlay (music) feature as well and connected it with speakers. I have had it for 3 weeks now and I haven't had a single issue with it. I spent $200 last year on a Linksys EA4500 router and from the start, the router often would not provide internet. I would have to restart it frequently to fix the issue but it would occur almost everyday. Until I got fed up and bought this one to replace it, which is a "downgrade" if you think about it.

    SPECS:

    Anyway, once, in these three weeks I did experienced an internet connection loss but I noticed that the AirPort Express "recognized" this and restarted all on its own! I was sitting next to it when it occurred but 5 secs later I was back online. I would consider the WiFi range to be decent but I really can't say much in this matter because I live in a 1,000 sq ft apartment; so, I get full signal almost everywhere. On this product's specifications it doesn't state the transfer rate, so I tested it, and, depending on your device, you may get up to 300 Mbps. I've used this AirPort Express connected with a Motorola Surfboard (Modem), MacBook Pro, iPhones, iPads, AppleTV, Canon Printer and a Sony VAIO (Windows). They all work perfectly fine with it.

    Hope this helps, good luck!
