    Best WIFI router we've owned.

    Over the years we have used three service providers, ATT (SBC, Ameritech), Comcast and Verizon. We've used various versions of modems with three different router vendors. Without a doubt the Express has been the most reliable of the three. Our last router had deteriorated into at least a once a day reset. Considering a flight of stairs was involved, it became a royal PITA. The only time I have reset problems is when our current provider has system outages. Otherwise, it is stable as a rock even during heavy lightning storms or after power outages.

    Some of the complaints on reliability had me concerned but we have now had ours for 17 months without a glitch. It supports 2 iPhones, 1 iPad, 1 MacAir, 1 Playstation, 2 Windows laptops and 2 TVs across three levels, each of which has approximately 900 sqft/level, from a location on the first level and has enough gas to cover the front porch and rear deck as well.

    Today, I finally used the AirPlay feature when I moved an old PC speaker system to the lower level, plugged it in and my iPhone was playing music to the connected system immediately, no reconfiguration needed. Apple makes high tech gear that is invisible, not an obstacle and that's why we have continued to add to our  collection!

    Such Excellence

    We are IT professionals, and just replaced our 13 (yes 13) year old AirPort with AirPort Express. While we can troubleshoot anything, we really appreciate not having to! This was plug-and-play, and the performance is excellent. And as always, we also appreciate the great design.

    And a tribute to our 2001 AirPort. It worked wonderfully for all those years, only now failing. We haven't been able to use the AirPort Utility for years as the old device was not supported, but it did not matter. How many technologies work for 13 years????

    Great experience

    Router is super easy to set up. Now after two years of use, it still works perfectly. Great buy for a lower-range "Apple enabled" network (i.e. Airplay, Time Machine, etc.). Highly recommended for Apple users and PC users alike. Management is definitely more streamlined on Apple devices but I use the PC app now and then and it still has all the features and ease of use. Buy it!!

    FLAWLESS-Another great apple product!!!

    I have not had any problems with this product and have had it for going on 8 months.
    It was an addition to my existing home (1,800 Sq ft) network. 3TB time Capsule, AirPort Extreme and 1st Gen. AirPort (1st fl streaming) Express.

    Modem and Time Capsule are on 1st fl. and this unit is on 2nd fl. about 40' apart through a concrete wall and floor.This is my only wired connection.

    I use it to extend my network on 2nd fl for Apple TV, streaming music and surfing the net.

    I have read many of the lower rated reviews and as with any router- location is very important. Avoid electrical interference. Do not try to hide this unit if you expect great range-place at desk to shoulder height.

    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.

    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!

    Better than my Linksys router

    After doing lots of research, I decided This router best suited my needs. Very simple to install, And improved my wifi range all the way out to most of my backyard (1300sq ft rambler). This also solved my airplay issues I was having while playing videos. The speed seems slightly faster than my Linksys router, and I've not had any drops in connection like my last router that occurred quite often. It also looks very clean and simple on my computer desk.

    Useful in CONCRETE & STEEL building!!

    Awesome product. I have two of these bouncing the signal to the furthest recesses of my house. I live in a 3000+ sq. ft. concrete house with steel paned concrete slabs, rebar in concrete and OWS joists between floors. Main router is in my basement and I have two of these boxes (on each of the two floors above). Works fantastically well. Noteworthy: my version is the older one (one box is 3 years old and the other is 2), this newer version must be better. p.s. - I don't work for Apple : )

    Great for Extending

    I live in a large house and had poor wifi reception on one end. I bought the Apple Express router and set it up in my kitchen which is halfway between the router and the other end of my house. Setup was very easy with my iPad. It went ahead and gave me the option to extend my wireless network from a Time Machine router I have in my living room. Now I can receive excellent service in the troubled area. Great fix for the price!

    Excellent Update

    I recently bought the latest AirPort Express, to replace my first generation AE which had been cutting my wi-fi connection in and out too frequently. I couldn't be happier with the new device. There has been NO loss of signal since I set it up last week. Not just that, but it's producing faster loading results.

    Best purchase I've made in a long while.

    Signal extension plus airplay to my old receiver

    Added one of these in our guest house in order to improve signal strength. That worked great. Then I found I could add a cable and connect to an optical port on my old Denon. Now I am driving some vintage speakers with airplay off my phone or I-pad. I expect that guests will love being able to play their music through that system.

    fast and consistent speeds

    I purchased the airport extreme to increase the wifi range and consistency of my home network. i live in a 1000 sq ft apartment and my $40 netgear router wasn't doing the job. purchased the airport extreme thinking i would back up my macbook over wifi, but found the speeds to be inconsistent and comparable to what i was getting with the $40 netgear router. returned the extreme and picked up the express. i am so happy i did. i get my advertised cable speeds at 30 Mbps consistently throughout the day. well worth the money and recommend to anyone who is considering upgrading router.

    Love It

    The AirPort Express works as advertised. It is super fast and set-up for 4 computers, an Apple TV, iPad, and 2 iPhones took less than ten minutes. The unit comes in a very small form factor; matching the size of the Apple TV. If you want an easy to configure wireless router I would definitely suggest paying the extra few dollars for this unit.
