    Great Wireless Extender

    Had Airport Extreme Base Station with 2 airport expresses set up to extend wireless networks to corners of house with weak signals.

    Not really totally happy with old airport express's performance so I thought I would try new new Airport Express. All I can say is wow. Positioned new express between area where the old two expresses were. Now my speed in either of the corners of the house where the old airport express's were has nearly doubled.

    Best $100 I have spent for awhile. Because of form factor, also looks cool sitting on table. This new express basically replaced the two older airports and increases download speed. Whats not to like?

    Highly recommend if planning on using it to extend wireless network.

    Cheap WIFI

    My Dad has an EMac computer hooked up directly to a cable modem. By spending a hundred dollars I now am able to use fast WIFI at his home. I simply ran his cable into the WAN port and hooked an old Ethernet CAble I had out the LAN to his machine, nothing changed for him, but his house now has password protected WIFI for his guests to use during visits.
    Used my MAC Book Pro to set it up, took all of 3 minutes, couldn't have been easier.
    Fast, Simple and Cheap!

    Express upgrade

    No Doubt this is an upgrade from thePrior express models! set up took less then 2 minutes. Good signal even on my front porch & Back Yard. Guest feature is a plus. Only wished I could add a USB networked flash drive from the USB port.

    Excellent

    I ordered this product last Friday, and it arrived today, thought it was late due to delays because of Hurricane Sandy. Got it set up in about 10 minutes, and its great! I have my MacBook Pro hooked up, and am streaming iTunes to it via AirPlay. The performance of it is great!

    Peace in the household

    Tried many wifi routers, this one was the first one to connect everyone's devices in the household without problem. Coverage is great and handles multiple and simultaneous session without a problem. Apple TV works flawlessly for the first time. Never had to reset while this was a regular activity with all previous routers. VERY easy set up, event to add share printer and airprint.

    Important Notes about Voltage

    I've seen people note that this new Airport Express model does not support 120/240 volt world compatibility but this is incorrect. While the supplied power cable does note 120v only, the device itself is labeled as compliant with US and world voltage at 120 and 240 volts. My guess is that the cable itself is labeled for the US, since in other parts of the world the supplied cable would be different.

    solved the problem but at a price

    I had a wi-fi dead corner in my house: weak signal, dropouts... . I've tried everything. Finally Apple support suggested the airport express base station.
    bought it, plugged it in - it took two minutes to install from my iPad. the dead corner now has a full signal. It's $100 but it works! Bravo!

    Amazing!!

    Just purchased the Airport Express & am very happy with it. It was easy to set up & I love how I can stream my music from all of my Apple products to my Bose using Airplay. Excellent wi-fi connection. Very happy with this purchase. Excellent customer service prior to purchase. Another home run for Apple.

    Simplicity and Complexity all-in-one-place!!!

    This Express knocks the previous version from the curb to the next city!! Way to go Apple!!! If you need a wireless device to extend your current network, this thing is hands-down the best device on the planet right now!!! Setup took 30 seconds, maybe a minute!!! Works flawlessly with all 10 devices we are connecting to the Wi-Fi... even our flatscreen TV can now see & play the shared iTunes file on our network drive!!!

    Love this little miracle worker

    We have Xfinity service and it has been a hassle since we moved to our new home, which is a older and does not have a great flow for technology. We have been through so many routers that I was about to give up all together. I finally decided to give this tiny little item with the big price tag (in my world)a try. It was simple to set up and most importantly powerful. Our biggest issue was the amount of items would cause some items to drop off or a lot of time no one was able to connect at all. We would reset our router at least 4 times a day on average. With 2 iPads, 3 kindles, 4 cell phones, 2 computers, apple tv, and 3 game systems it never seemed to work out for us. Now with this little miracle worker everyone is connected all the time with no issues. We have had it set up for a week and I haven't reset it once. I am so happy that I could just dance.

    Quick, painless, and smooth operation

    I have used many routers over the years. Linksys, net gear, and even an asus I put dd-wrt on and ALL would give me problems. Random drops, lag on gaming, etc. none compare to the simplicity and speed as this one.

    I have owned it for two days now and no drop outs, not to mention my Sonia not coming to me complaining abut lag on his Xbox 360. Even my "New iPad" doesn't drop the connection. I was starting to suspect I had one with the wireless issues. Not any more.

    This thing has great coverage. I live in a 1500 sq ft house and I get full bars anywhere. The base station is in a central spot. I am sitting here typing this 60' away through 3 walls and it's at ful bars. Just pure perfection,

    I can't express how much of an apple fan I have become and this device just adds to my appreciation of all things Apple.

    Another Amazing Apple Product

    I had a 2 year old Cisco Router, which I paid good money for. I have around 11 devices running and it could not handle it anymore. Now the AirPort Express handles it and more. On top of that it was connected and running in less then a minute. Its another clean, simple product by Apple

    Near perfect

    I've had this router since June 2012 and it has been nearly flawless. Integrates perfectly in my apple ecosystem. Fast, reliable, easy to set up and use.

    Finally!!

    I just got a mac mini and started having issues with my Linksys router. I purchased a D- Link and their customer service was not able to connect it to my mac. Finally Apple suggested I get the Airport Express and it works amazing!! I no longer get the error "another pc is using your same ip address". Also I have a 2 story 1400 sqft house. I have it connected on the second floor and the reception is better than the other routers I had. I get full bar reception on my iphone and ipad all over the house with no issues. If you are worried about getting this one verses the extreme, just purchase this one and try it out. You may not need the more expensive one. I was told by apple support that this new one has much better reception than the old one. I am so happy and always willing to pay a little extra for apple products when they are so simple to use. I am very happy with this.

    Perfect!

    Bought this router to replace my cable providers router that kept cutting the signal at weird times of the day and it has been nothing but FLAWLESS. Super easy to set up, super tiny and works just fine for an apartment of 4.

    Works like magic!

    I compared this with what Netgear and Belkin were offering (ballpark $80) before my purchase but finally decided on this one because of the ease-of-use of my last one, and the unobtrusive form factor - its in my living room.

    I use a Linux machine for a DHCP server and planned to use this in a bridged mode to make everything else work together. This isn't a bizarre configuration, but not the most common configuration either.

    So here's the cool part: I plugged it in to my network with my Macbook on the physical network, expecting to fish around a bit in 'Network Preferences' - but before any intervention was needed, the AirPort utility popped up with a picture of my new device, then asked me to name it and set the password.. it displayed something about 'checking the existing network' then configured itself in 'bridge mode' exactly as I intended to do manually. The only extra clicking I did was when I double-checked that it had just finished doing the smartest thing possible on my network.

    Easy & Effective

    Went to Apple Store, bought it on my Iphone and was out of the store (which was full) within 90 seconds. Got home, connected it to the power. Went to my Mac opened Airport Utility and was up and running literally within 10 minutes. It has extended the range of my network incredibly into my backyard/patio area. Kudos for Apple. It continues to be an incredible company (even w/o Mr Jobs No disrespect intended)

    Plug and Play!

    If all your electronics are Apple, this is a MUST have. I needed a booster for the back of my house and this was perfect combined with my AirPort Extreme. I plugged it into the wall, opened AirPort Utility on my MacBook Pro clicked the box in the upper left hand corner of the AP Utility pop up and the Mac did the rest! Once it was set up and showed up in my Network, I unplugged it and took it to the back of the house and plugged it in. FOUR bars of Network signal!! YES!! I can't believe it took this long for me to buy this! MUST have if your Network needs a boost!
