    The best router ever!!!

    Before Airport Express I had a Linksys from Cisco, and it hardly speeded with 20-30 Mbps from 100 Mbps maximum (contractual). With the Airport Express I'm browsing the internet with around 90-95 Mbps which is excellent! Moreover, is small and very easy to configure, which makes it perfect for my living room.

    Unstable

    Loses its connection constantly. Music playback suddenly clips and stutters, randomly can't be found on my network for airplaying, just disappears with no warning. Has to be reset every 2-4 days. Waste of money. The only product from Apple i regret buying.

    Life Changing

    Ive had this router for six months now and it is flawless. Unlike previous third party routers that constantly crash and need to be power cycled - Ive never once needed to restart this Express and my connection on my MacBook, iPad and iPhone is consistent and never drops. Yes, its pricey, but you get what you pay for. Wireless speakers and printing are just icing on the cake.

    Flawless and easy set up

    Bought an AP Express to extend my network from an Extreme Base Station since I am in a ranch type house and the reach of the network on one side the house would leave speed and connectivity some room for improvements.

    Very happy, received, connected in a snap, and Voila! The connection is that side of the house is now super fast (FIOS) and no regret, this thing work marvels!

    Gadgets cannot connect right away & signal is lost most of the time

    The first generation airport express was really a performer. So after 3 years of being impressed by its performance, I decided to get this new airport express a few months ago. I was disappointed. My gadgets (iphone, mac, belkin switches, ipads, smart tv) can't connect to the new express right away. I have to search the wifi signal and type in the codes again. Very disappointing product!

    Five stars

    Very easy to use and install. Much better than the previous version. I have a lot of problems with the previous version. Now I have the new version and 0 problems.

    The best router I have used

    First let me say I have used a large amount of different routers over the past 12 years. This is the first router that has never disconnected regardless if it's the MacBook Pro with the retina display, standard MacBook, Xbox 360, iPhone or iPad. My current Internet connection is 40 GB per second download 5 GB per second upload it has never dropped or lost signal while playing video games, downloading apps, etc. It does have only one RJ-45 output but everything in my house is wireless so that does not bother me at all. As for the configuration it was all automatically configured and the only configuring I did with the Apple airport express was to create a second network for guest users and set up passwords. The Apple airplay and network printer/scanner was all plug-and-play and required no configuring whatsoever. I've had this express base Station for a couple months and had zero problems with it so I highly recommend this product and I definitely give it a five out of five.

    Save your money

    Drops connection once or twice a day and must be unplugged and restarted. Wish I had read the reviews here before I purchased. I now know that's a common problem with the Express.

    My 5th Generation Extreme works great. Hard to believe the Express is made by the same company.

    Worst Apple's product ever - streaming just DOESN'T work

    I can't believe this product has 4 stars. Try to stream music with AirPlay... Every model of this device had issues with frequent music drop out when streaming... and unfortunately I'm the owner of this model...
    More than four years of complains of other users on Apple's forum...

    If you're going to buy it in order to stream music - think twice :-)...

    Better Than Ever!

    Just purchased a new, Airport Express, and set it up with my existing Airport Extreme. I've been using Airport Expresses for years now, and the setup process was so simple, and quick, I really am surprised! It works great, and we now have solid reception, every in the house.

    This is the best Express, yet, and am so glad I added it to our home network.

    Simple yet powerful

    You know I really have to give those apple employees a lot of credit, your all amazing!
    This router is elegant, simplified and powerful. It took a matter of minutes to set it up, provided the range, speed and connectivity to all my devices effortlessly.

    Keep designing great products!

    AirPlay is Awesome

    the best thing about AirPort Express is the Audio out AirPlay Enabled, da new look goes perfect with my apple tv since they are the same size the same shape except that Apple Tv is black and Airport Express is white.

    Lasted 14 months

    I bought this September 9, 2014. It gave up December 2015. It shows strong wifi signal but does not connect. I tried connecting an ethernet cable to it but failed also. Now, I surf the net connected by ethernet cable direct to the modem.

    AIRPORT EXPRESS

    I needed a router for my DSL connection. I have the late Macbook pro with retina display for 2013. It works great with it. I'm not an apple product fan, but I love how apple products are in sync with one another. It connects all wireless products. My macbook pro comes with airport utility to set it up. U can also download it to your ipad, iphone, or android. Overall, this is a good product, but the price is costly.

    Does not work as advertised

    This was sold as a network extender with a promise in store that it does not matter what type of network you have. This is not true. It would not work with my Cisco network and Apple product support admitted that it does not work with any network other than apple networks (apparently the representatives I spoke to get between 2 and 4 calls a day about this so it is a major problem). I have not tried it with an apple network, but based on previous promises I would not waste my money buying one to find out. Of course in order to find out it doesn't work you have to open the package, so guess what - no refund. Am not impressed with after sales service for this product and since it is our first time needing after sales support it really makes us ponder any further purchases from apple.

    Excellent

    Added the Apple AirPort Express as a piggy back router to our NetGear Wifi Router and the connection in our house soared immediately. Moved the AirPort Express farther away from where the NetGear Router is located. Definitely a Buy!

    Failed product design is very unreliable

    I have had a few of these routers and have found that there are many problems with them.
    First if you use them to stream music say from iTunes you can't also use the internet as the music will stop playing.
    Second these routers will randomly go offline and have to be unplugged and "reset" - very frustrating.
    Third the range is ridiculously short. Do not expect to cover more than one room or you will be disappointed.
    Fourth they often don't even show up in Airport Utility so you can't access the firmware all the time to troubleshoot.
    Fifth they just die randomly and have to be replaced - a couple years lifespan from my experience - they seem to overheat.
    Sixth they have problems maintaining connection to another router if used to expend your wifi range - don't expect to have
    consistent success doing this and absolutely don't expect success using them to wirelessly send music to your speakers -
    this has been a complete failure. Buy a proven router from another manufacturer. They are cheaper and far far superior in operation and reliability. On the plus size they are small.

    Works but tempermental during setup

    If you do not think, plug the unit in, install the app, auto config, it works great. If you think about it, look at any settings other than what it wants to use you get no where fast.
    Saying that...
    I have gone through to many Linksys products, more than I can count. They work well at the beginning, about a year and then you get to reset the units daily. So far I have not had any issues with the AE and would recommend this to anyone who does not want to think.
    I have used this unit in Japan as well, worked great on most networks... if you auto configure.
    If it last 2 years I would buy again... stay tuned.

    Works Wonderfully!

    I was getting horrible internet in my apartment complex and decided to give this a try. Got this all set up and BAM! I've never been happier. Set up was a little tricky, but all that took was a call to customer service and they helped me. I would definitely recommend this!

    I have two of these – and they are both a nightmare!

    Having to continually do factory reset on both of them. 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.
