    Perfect in Every Way!! Can't Say Enough!!!!

    • Written by from EVERETT

    I could honestly go on and on about this product. My internet provider had given me a wireless gateway which was supposed to be a wireless N router with all the latest features, and it was horrible - slow speeds, poor wireless signal, and constant problems with things like Air Play. So, I went back to using a four year old Time Capsule which drastically improved speeds and instantly solved the Air Play problems. Then, I decided to purchase a new Time Capsule. The positive experiences began with the physical look and design of the unit and continued from there. This Time Capsule literally doubled my internet speed, now actually giving me the speed I'm paying for - yes even wirelessly. Wi-Fi range has been improved to be even more impressive - even without any 802.11 AC devices on my network. Back-ups with Time Machine are fabulous also. I did an initial back-up of almost 400 GB in around six hours - wirelessly! Yesterday we were streaming a TV show on Apple TV while my daughter streamed a show on her iPad. At the same time, we were performing an initial wireless back-up and streaming music via Air Play in another room, and everything worked perfectly. I would have been confident to make a FaceTime call or anything else on top of that too. Now obviously as you can tell, we have a very fast internet connection - over 100 MBPS, but still we never realized those speeds over Wi-Fi until getting this new Time Capsule. This and the Airport Extreme are the only routers I ever recommend to people. I exchanged my internet provider's gateway for a non-Wi-Fi device and I couldn't be happier! Love it!:)

    I honestly couldn't believe how fast my internet became after purchasing the Airport Time Capsule and then it looks so sleek and beautiful in design sitting in my living room waiting for me to store data. I absolutely love it.

    Great performance

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I have purchased about a month ago to sync all of my apple products at Home. Wifi speed went up almost 10 times faster than regular router from cable company. Moreover, I have been using time capsule not only back up drive, but also home files sharing for all of music, movies, and doc. Time capsule brought much more options than what I expected. Strongly recommend.

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Timberlea

    Replaced older 3 TB time capsule, fantastic device. It was painless to setup and configure as most things are from Apple. Since it has just been setup last night and my imac did a full backup it seems to me to be faster and stable - but only one day old.

    Amazing!

    • Written by from Worcester

    I had a top of the line Linksys router before I upgraded. It would get chocked up, and it would reduce my bandwidth to a crawl if I had more than a few devices on the network. The Airport Time Capsule gives me amazing speed, even with over 20 devices connected!

    Great Range, super easy to set up...

    • Written by from Greenwich

    I tried FOUR different routers to replace my 500gig time capsule to get a better signal. No luck. I was about to settle for the n spec dark knight, when this week, BANG a new TC. I'll try it, I thought and I'm glad I did. Better range, no dead spots and 2 tb backup for $299 instead of separate router and hd for $280. Thanks again Apple.

    Amazing! All wifi gripes eliminated immediately!

    • Written by from New Haven

    This little guy was an absolutely wonderful investment. All of my gripes and complaints about my wifi network (slow speed, poor range, cutting out) are gone. I can't recommend this machine enough. Plug and play- in just a few simple steps, my brand new network was ready to go, as was my Time Machine backup. A must-have for tech enthusiasts, pros, and beginners alike.

    Love my TC

    • Written by from Vancouver

    The time capsule has improved my productivity immensely in terms of storage, retrieval and creating files non-linearly. Love the fact that I can go back in time and get different versions of files without saving them in my folder using version 1,2,3... Also when my graphics card went I was able to recover the whole system exactly as it was before the crash (unfortunately crashes sometimes do happen even to Apple). Everyone should have one!

    Airport Express/Extreme

    • Written by from Manassas

    I love the Apple Airport Express and Extreme for handling an additional Mac, MacBook Pro and Netflix. They're great. However, I have issues with the Time Capsule as being too slow and temperamental. I prefer hard wired backups. SuperDuper updates in less than 2 minutes on two USB 3.0 drives and the Time Machine works great too.

    Best router in general but with the extra storage, Backup savior.

    • Written by from Shelter Island

    Title says it all. When I first purchased it it came with a dead Ethernet port on the back. Didn't really need it but I wanted to get it fixed. Months went by and scheduled an appointment at an Apple store near by and they gave me a whole new one. Was out in 5 minuets. Couldn't of had better service.

    Amazing range and speed increase over old Airport X

    • Written by from Clackamas

    I purchased the 3TB version ahead of purchasing my new Mac Pro this month. I wasn't expecting such a range and speed boost as I'm still only using the "n" technology in my devices. The third story of my home was always a slow connection and was an issue with streaming TV content through my Apple TV. Now I get full strength and over 20 Meg's per second instead of 3-4. Great Job Jony and team ID!

    Best router I've owned yet

    • Written by from Franklinton

    Have had Linksys, Netgear and a couple of other non name brand routers through the years. But this Airport Time Capsule-2TB delivers fast, strong and reliable wireless signal anywhere in my home. To compare, I can be 100+ feet away with a small office, trees and several walls inbetween and still get 40 Mbps. Same spot with the linksys and netgear router I barely get 2-5 Mbps. Also the automatic backup to the Airport Time Capsule ensures flawless and complete back ups.

    Apple, I sincerely thank you for consistently making such easy to use, high quality products.

    Even my Garage has strong signal now!

    • Written by from Aliso Viejo

    I have owned an Apple Time Capsule since 2008. I appreciate the tight integration with Mac's Time Machine backups. This is my 3rd Time Capsule from Apple. It works flawlessly. But what is really amazing with the latest iteration is the strength of the wi-fi signal throughout my 1800 square foot, three level town home. It sits on the top floor. It covers every square inch of my town home with strong signals. But the "coup de gras" was my realization that my iPhone had full wi-fi strength in my garage (even outside of it)! I never had connections in the garage. Overall, this is another great time machine.

    Absolutely Fantastic!

    • Written by from Portland

    Let me make a long story short - I've owned pretty much every brand of wireless router including D-Link, Netgear, and Motorola routers. My latest mistake was opting for a Motorola combo cable modem/WiFi router because it was about $100 cheaper than the AirPort Extreme and included the required cable modem. Boy was that a mistake. I live in a studio apt. with a small concrete wall dividing my bedroom from the living room, and I couldn't get a signal in bed. I resorted to buying a Netgear range extender, but it cut my speeds by about 90% so I finally gave up and just bought the AirPort. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I now get 5 bars in my room with nearly 60 Mbps speed (on a 60 Mbps connection), and I couldn't be happier. This router is worth it's weight in gold. Save yourself a LOT of headaches with the other brands and get yourself one of these bad-boys now!

    Great Router. The Best Yet!

    • Written by from Phoenixville

    I can't tell you how many high end routers I have had over the years (including other Airport models). This one I just tested and love it. It took only 2 minutes to set up. The key though is the range and throughput which are both better than any other router I have tried. Look, there are some people that say the wireless backup and access is a tad slow. That is true but it is wireless folks. If you are looking for the quickest speed for a extra drive go buy a WD raptor and plug it in to your computer via USB. I find the access time acceptable. If you are using it for Time Machine backups like me, it works in the background so you don't even know if it is fast or slow. Finally Apple designed and created a AirPort product up to the high build quality and performance of all their other products!

    OMG! I love this thing!

    • Written by from Plano

    I bought the time capsule expecting maybe a slight increase in my wifi speeds and range. After the quick setup with my Verizon fios modem, I noticed that I was consistently getting twice the speeds on wifi through out my home.

    Great job @ $50 a year - which hits technology upgrade point

    • Written by from Los Gatos

    This is my third time capsule in about 15 years. It serves as a router (incoming WAN from cable modem to HP LAN switch); wireless access point (part of a wireless canopy with 3 airport express); and time machine target. This purchase replaced a Time Capsule from 2008. Installation was a no brainer. I left the other Time Capsule powered up. When I started the new Time Capsule, it asked if I wanted to copy the settings from the old Time Capsule. Click Yes. Done.

    It does its job beautifully. The backups - Time Machine - from the macs in the house has never failed. I've used it only half a dozen times over the years, but when you need it, you need it.

    It is a consumer grade product which means expect it to last about 5 years or so.
