    Ease of set up

    • Written by from NEVADA CITY

    After plugging in the cables the Amber light flashed and the book instruction said go to page 18. I followed the instruction and in a minute it was working. Then the utility lead me through setting a password and I was done except for installing the password in my iphone and iPad. I had envisioned an afternoon of frustration. Even Time Machine started working after I designated Time Capsule as the disk to use. It hadn't worked for three weeks.

    Top of the line!

    Went into my local electronics store looking for a new router. I went over to the shelf and picked up a high-end wireless router ($300) Walked over to look at the apple stuff. Started talking to the Apple attended on staff at the store. He informed me that Apple also has a wireless router that is easier to set up And very user-friendly with AC technology ( The latest Wireless Technology) . I certainly did not know this! ( Apple needs to advertise this more) I also was informed for the same manufacturers price of other high-end wireless router! Apple offers a high-end wireless router with a 2 TB hard drive for back ups. I was very interested in this because we own two MacBook Pros with retina display. I purchased the Apple airport time capsule took it home to set it up. The set up was so very easy! From unboxing the airport Time capsule to completion was only 7 minutes! I was totally blown away with the AC Wi-Fi range! I'm getting double the wi-Fi distance that I was used to!! Thank You Apple for simplifying our lives! Keep up the great work!!

    I should have known better

    • Written by from Youngsville

    After trying to purchase a couple of lowered priced devices (router and extender), I decided that I would buy a time capsule and give it a shot after reading a lot of positive reviews. Let's just say that not only I am happy but my daughters are happy too. We have great coverage and speed throughout the house. Devices include iMac, Macbook, two iPod touches, three iPads and two Apple TV's. Great product and I highly recommend, next step is set up time machine,

    Great Router

    • Written by from Reynoldsville

    This is a wonderful product. It delvers incredibly fast wireless to the 15+ devices that are constantly connected to my network. I have had absolutely no connection or other issues. Well worth the cost.

    • Written by from San Francisco

    My old (version 5) Airport Time Machine has worked well, but the signal did not reach everywhere in our three-story house. I had read that the signal strength might improve with newer devices, so on a whim I decided to buy this new version. The setup could not have been easier, even by Apple standards--I moved the modem cable to the new Airport and plugged it in. Upon opening Airport Utility, the new device was identified and the new device seamlessly replaced the old. So none of my devices, including Apple TV, the kids' video game consoles, and even a Samsung Blu-ray player had to rejoin (the last one is pretty annoyingly cumbersome). Out of curiosity I clicked on my old Airport and the utility asked me if I wanted to use it to extend the network. I placed it elsewhere in the house and it works great.

    Speeds? On SpeedTest I went from (Comcast cable) 18Mb/sec to 36Mb/sec. Pretty incredible for a few minutes of setup.

    Best Time Capsule and Air Port Base

    • Written by from Austin

    The main purpose for this purchase was the better distance antenna. It impressed me, I'm so happy Apple makes great products that just work. The migration from my old Time Capsule was seamless and fast and intuitive. Definitely recommend, I can be out at pool in the back yard with great connection and speed.

    Very impressed

    • Written by from Temecula

    Bought the new TC 2GB tonight to support 802.11AC on my new MBA when it will arrive early next week. I already have 3 routers at home, 1 from Verizon FIOS and 2 Linksys E1200 as 1 router doesn't cut it in the house.
    Setup was extremely easy, I have a MacPro with no wireless connected to one of the LAN ports, it took ~ 1 min and airport utility popped up and it took ~ 2 min to go through all menus and set the router up. It automatically set up in bridge mode which is exactly what I wanted, as I want all my computers on the same subnet.
    Performance on my MacPro (wired) appears to be slightly better.

    So far very happy with my purchase, now I can't wait to get my new MBA to have a real speedy wireless network ...

    Fantastic Router

    • Written by from East Patchogue

    Excellent speeds and range. I have a very tight area in same area as my AV equipment (not optimal for range) and I get full bars all over my house in N-speeds. Once new MacBook Pros come out, I will get full advantage of ac, but still with internet speeds at 55/8, I'm sure the difference will not be fully realized. The one hiccup I did have was when I had everything hardwired with a 8 port switch, I needed to renew the DHCP lease, and now everything over ethernet is working just like before. Another excellent piece of hardware from the best!

    Excellent Router and Back-Up

    • Written by from Harvest

    Great and simple user experience. Plug it in, select it on your computer, assign password, done. Even though it was big (200+ Gigs) first back up over wi-fi, that went seamlessly in approx. four hours.

    Time Capsule saves me data on my cell phone carrier: Previously my kids on the other end of the house would lose the wi-fi signal and their phones would revert to cellular data. With the AirPort time Capsule they now get 3 or 4 bars and wi-fi is never dropped. Download speeds are fine, have not even bothered hard wiring the unit to my 5K Retina iMac as originally planned.

    Digital Saver!!

    • Written by from GATINEAU

    I love this router. My signal has become more stable and stronger. I now have access to my Wi-Fi everywhere in the house. The time capsule is working seamlessly and I couldn't be happier. Is it expensive? Yes however the payoff has been well worth it.

    I don't usually write reviews but i just purchased this and I love it. I am happy I bought it because the reviews almost deterred me. It's only the first day, but it works great. Easy set up, no problems at all.

    • Written by from ATLANTA

    For years we suffered with a router that required daily rebooting. The Time Capsule does its job all day, every day. You do nothing.

    We have Comcast service and the measured speed on Apple devices has gone from 7 MB down to a blazing 50 Mbps. Wireless range has improved and setup is a snap.

    Yes, it's a tad pricy, but you get what you pay for. Get one and enjoy it.

    Great Wireless Router

    • Written by from Hooksett

    I just picked this up today as a replacement for my airport extreme gen. 5. Setup was incredibly easy, less than 15 minutes even with the firmware update. I did not even have to reset the airport express that is also on the same network. This is a noticeable improvement in speed over the airport extreme I replaced. The signal beaming seems to be very effective. Glad I purchased this.

    Simple, Sleek, Fast, Reception and Compatibility

    • Written by from Markham

    The title says it all! I am very impressed on how the Airport Time Capsule functions! The router is located in my basement of a 3 story house. The third story gets full bar reception! Haven't seen that much since I had an access point set up in the home!

    Looks simple and un-noticed as a router, blends in with it's modern design! Just have the wires well set up and clean and you're good!

    Blackberry to Windows PC to the Macbook Air, iPad and iMac (2009) all connect instantly! It is as if the internet is built in to my devices these days.

    B/G/N/AC - My cellphone alone goes 433 Mb/s (N/AC) with over 12 devices connected on the network at the same time.

    Time Capsule - 2TB, Wicked feature to have!

    Keep the competition going Apple!

    Very Pleased

    • Written by from Gloucester

    Hooked up my new TC and all of my devices found the new network easily. I'm router phobic and was dreading the switch over to a new router but it went off without a hitch - well except for one device - my HP eprinter simply refused to find the new network. Once I went in and manually entered the network name, the printer found it immediately. Everything is up and running perfectly. I couldn't be more pleased.

    Fast and Easy

    • Written by from Sonoma

    I needed a backup for my Mac and went with Time Capsule. I thought I would use my current Airport Extreme as an extender to improve signal in the farthest room in my house. The 811.ac technology was a nice-to-have for future upgrades.

    As a router, this thing really flies. Fast and strong coverage across the wide angle I need. I don't really need to use my Airport Extreme as an extender. The directional antenna feature (I think) only works with the 811.ac devices, but no worries, my current devices work great.

    As for the Time Machine, the set up was so easy I was kinda disappointed I didn't get to play with it more. The application figured everything out for me and I was up and running in no time. I added a scheduling app from the App Store for $4 so that the backups would be done at night. The default setting is pretty aggressive with hourly backups.

    All in all, couldn't ask for more.

    Easy setup and powerful and fast wi-fi!

    • Written by from LOS ANGELES

    I purchased this to replace my old 1TB AirPort, the one with the low profile. This current model is exponentially better. They've added antennas, changed it to a vertical profile (with the antennas at the top - better to transmit and receive) and paired it with VERY easy network setup in the current Mavericks OS. I had it all set up and working within a couple of minutes of getting it out of the box. The frustration I had with the old model was that the wi-fi signal, although strong, seemed to choke the speed of my connection. This current model is insanely powerful - I'm loading web pages on my iOS devices without any delay. Streaming to those devices is seamless. And the range is far better than before - it covers all of my property, making repeaters unnecessary for the first time. If you're also replacing an older AirPort, you could probably use the older model as a repeater - but I didn't have to. I use the AirPort's wi-fi signal instead of my wireless router's signal, because it's far more powerful.

    And, of course, the whole Time Machine backup is seamless - as usual. I couldn't be happier.

    Airport Time Capsule 2TB Works Great

    • Written by from lynchburg

    I replaced a top of the line Netgear wireless router with the Airport Time Capsule 2TB in order provide a backup device for our family of Macbook Pros/Airs. It has worked fabulously since coming out of the box. It provides super fast streaming on multiple devices and works seamlessly with Time Machine to back everything up on our computers. The range is impressive as well. I absolutely love it!
