    Exceptional Product!

    Unmatched in the industry! Nicely done Apple. Great to add wireless to just about any audio/video component and printers that have an internet port which then becomes accessible via Apple AirPlay.

    Fantastic

    I upgraded a netgear n150 wireless router when airplay mirroring was lagging on it.
    Setup was different from the netgear but the setup software explained everything along the way and before I knew it I had everything going wired and wireless. My ipad on the 5ghz network helped eliminate any lag with airplay mirroring and my apple tv is hardwired to the express, now when I stream my movies from icloud in HD the buffer time does not take as long compared to my old netgear. Best investment I have made to improve my network.

    Extended range

    Purchased this to extend range of my Apple Extreme base station. House is on three levels with Apple Extreme on top floor. Could not get signal to back rear of house nor to out side front. Installed this unit on lowest level. Now receive signal throughout house plus outside of home. No dead spots. Excellent signal strength. The bottom line with these devices is placement. If you wish to use to extend your signal you may have to try different locations. The other factor is the cable modem bringing the signal to the base station. Is it b/g or b/g/n? Finally, the setup to extend is extremely simple. Just be sure you have your passwords.

    so far so good!

    Bought this when I moved. Hooked it up to my cable modem, printer and speakers.
    Works well. I consistently get 5GHZ signal. Airplay works well with my iphone, macbook pro but not my ipod touch (gen 2).

    I recommend it!

    Great addition to AirPort Extreme

    I've extended my wireless AirPort Extreme network with Airport Express. Setup is simple, signal strength is great and response time is outstanding. The Extreme is connected to a high speed cable modem in an upstairs study and the express is placed in a downstairs family room. I'm accessing the Internet via the Express with an iPad, a laptop, an iPhone, and a Blu Ray player and have experienced no problems whatsoever.

    Wow! And I'm not paid to write this...

    I literally opened the new Airport Extreme box and plugged in 2 cords and wall-laa its done. I never used to get wifi in my 2 story house... Now I get full coverage wifi all the way to my mail-box and the routher is in the basement! Excellent product!

    It even has airstream for your music? Wireless from your phone to speakers in your house?
    Its sooo legit..... HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. (and yes im screaming it at you) for $108 at best-buy you absolutely can NOT go wrong.

    Reason for buying.... Just bought a new Macbook Pro "15.4" non-retina display and needed wifi considering my whole house is hard wired. All I did was connect a ethernet cord from the moden to the wifi now I have hardwire for the whole house and wifi for friends or laptops that are in the house and it doesnt even slow the connection! LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! BUY IT

    I don't get it

    The new design is bad. One of my favorite things about the previous versions of the Express was that it was a self-contained, super portable little router. I could slip it in my laptop case and take it with me on the road and not even feel any extra weight or notice much extra space taken up. Now this new version adds a long power cord into the mix. It's much less portable. I have returned the unit and am sticking with my old Airport Express.

    No Gigabit WAN!

    Why in this latest update Apple couldn't include a gigabit ethernet port is beyond me. I purchased one and let that fact slip by me. Going to return the device asap. Using Fios 150x65 service and the 100baseT throttles the service down by 60Mbs

    Terrific!

    This is serious competition to D-Link and Linksys routers... I love the Apple TV like design. It looks so simple and elegant and yet it is so powerful!

    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!

    very weak wifi signal

    I purchased an airport express on the advice of an apple sales person that it would provide a perfectly good wireless signal over a distance of 30m.
    Once I purchased the product and set it up in our home office I found that that was not the case and I could not get a reliable signal in the house (approx 20m away from the home office).
    I was then advised to purchase a second airport express to use as an expander in the house. However, it still takes about 5 times as long to load a website in the house as it does in the office, and the express in the house keeps dropping the connection with the express in the office.
    I have purchased a new imac and two airport expresses only to find that I have to use my 6 year old wireless G router in order to get reliable internet access to the computer in the house.
    When I called applecare support I was advised that the earlier advice given by the apple salesperson was wrong and that an airport express really only gives a strong signal over a distance of about 10m.
    As a result, he suggested I buy a third airport express and set it up in between the two I’ve already bought, however, that is impossible as there is only lawn between them.
    I feel like I’ve been sold a lemon by apple. Very disillusioned with this product. Complete waste of money.

    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.
