    Best Router purchased.

    I purchased the Time Capsule 2TB about a month ago and I am very happy with it. The signal is great and the wireless works on every device I own with no additional setup (MacBook Pro, iPhone 5, iPad3, Sony Ericcson Xpheria, xBox360 slim.) The harddrive on it is also very reliable and easy to connect to. It took me a second to find it as it shows up in the shared are in Finder instead of as it's own icon on the desktop. So, my one and only complaint. The harddrive is slow. I read a little about this being the case online and it does have some fair points. That being said, this is not such a huge problem for me personally so I am still very happy with it. 4 out of 5 stars, only for the slow harddrive.

    Get this now!

    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

    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.

    Amazing! All wifi gripes eliminated immediately!

    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.

    3 years later and still runs perfect

    Got this three years ago as a way for me to back up my hard drive, and to use as a router as I was going off to school. I have never had a single issue or problem with it. The router capabilities are fantastic and it significantly increases the range for the internet. Tried a WD backup but had a few issues with it, so decided to upgrade to this. Love it and still do.

    Frustrating

    So disappointed. Yes it works great as a backup storage. Yes it has great connectivity. Wanted both backup and to be able to move files over to as well. Could have bought another brand 2T wifi hard drive for less money that would allow me to back up AND store files. Why does apple make some things so difficult? Just like you cannot move photos to iCloud. People really want to save their photos in other places beside a flash drive and or on laptops.

    Works well so far

    Fast = yes
    Easy = yes
    Can it host files like a NAS = yes
    To set this up you just have to log onto the router from each Mac computer

    What would make this better? = convenient local sync like a personal cloud such as drop box or sugar sync

    I'm still working on how to network attach a USB printer...

    Fast and Easy

    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!

    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

    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!

    Outstanding Product

    I live in a building that has a lot of disturbance. Upgrading to this router solved the issues of spotty service that I was having with a Netgear router. Configuration was performed using my Phone 5S. My pings are now consistent and never get any timeouts. Love it!

    Excellent Speed and Range Increase from Netgear WNDR3700

    Replaced a year old Netgear WNDR3700 and this router is amazing! Speed is very quick compared and range has been extended too. I bought this with an Airport Express to connect a network printer and it automatically connected to it. It also extended the my network without an ethernet cord attached from the Airport Time Capsule and the Express acted as an access point as well as connecting my printer. The Time Capsule portion is also successfully backing up 3 computers as well. I wish I had bought this router earlier! Worth every penny!

    The best just got better

    Easily the best update to one of Apple's signature devices for me. Takes barely a minute to set up and have running, helped by the excellent Airport Utility. It is everything you want in a backup device, it really does just work.

    The footprint is smaller than the previous version although of course it's taller. The range of this device is superb, even in my 3,600 sq. ft. house. There are full bars and very quick wifi downloads - even using Time Warner - on all other devices in the house [2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 3 iMacs and a Macbook Pro].

    Excellent device. Highly recommended.

    Nice and good-looking router

    It's one of the very few and robust home solutions for backing up hard drive! At the same time is a very good wi-fi router.

    Plus:
    It's silent, I have met some routers that make a lot of noise

    Very easy to setup with any apple device or windows 7.

    I simultaneously synchronize my iphone, run back up, surf the internet, stream HD content on my apple TV without a hussle and all these through my 72Mbps settled laptop speed.

    Minus are:
    It's mildly hot all the time, not extremely though

    It's formatted as FAT32 so it won't serve windows machines always at it's best. For example Windows System Image requires NTFS.

    You can plug in only FAT32 Hard Drives. If you have a disk formatted otherwise, then it will show up but it won't be usable.

    Best router I ever had

    It took 10 minutes to make it work (including unpacking, plugging and typing in passwords for new network from my iPad). Network speed is amazing: both on WiFi and gigabit LAN ports. Internal disks are mapped as network shares so you can easily access from any mac/*nix/windows machines.
    The only minor issue I've met: plastic legs at the bottom are sliding on my table so I have to place the device in secured position to avoid accidental drop.

    2 Issues with Time Capsule

    Actually, OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 UNDID my wireless access to backup - I now have to be connected to my Airport Time Capsule (an older version) via ethernet. So backups are not happening automatically (my only cable is old, broken tab, needs to be carefully set up) my data is at risk. Looked for help on forum, just found others with same issue. Also - have not understood how the wi-fi router in Time Capsule is supposed to work with the wireless router that brings internet into my house: my ISP people tell me that the two routers will simply "fight with each other", undermining my internet delivery. Wish I could find answers more easily about this product.

    Great Router, Love the Extra Features.

    I actually purchased both an Airport Express, and the Airport time Capsule, and couldn't be happier. I put the Express down stairs and the Time Capsule in my room to extend the Wi-fi network upstairs. It has worked flawlessly so far, and the speed upstairs is a big plus. Time Machine works great on my new Macbook Pro, but the biggest selling point for me was the USB port on the back of the Time Capsule. I reformated an old WD 1 Tb drive I had for my old PC and plugged it into the back of the Time Capsule. I love being able to upload files from my two Macs or my Moms PC to the drive over my Wi-fi network, It's like my households own personal Cloud. Would highly recomnmend to anyone on the market. Thumbs up Apple.

    Fastest Router I have found to date.

    I I was a little skeptical about this purchase at first. I have been a Netgear and Linksys user for many years. I was using a Netgear router R6300 and thought that this was the best you could buy. I plugged in the Time Capsule and apple computer found it right away. Setup was easy which took about 5 minutes and I was back online. This doubled my speed of my wireless devices and the range covered my entire 1800sqft home. I like the fact that you do not need to have a Mac to use this and can set it up using an IPhone or IPad with Airport Utility.
