    Another grand slam for Apple!

    This router is simply amazing. The speed and range is crazy, but I'm most impressed with ease of setup. I upgraded from the previous generation Airport Extreme to this bad boy. Using the Settings app on my iPhone, I found the router and I was asked if I was replacing my old router. I said yes and it automatically moved my settings over from my old Airport and prompted me to plug in my wires and that was it. My network downtime was 38 seconds (yes, I timed it). This, along with a new 802.11ac adapter for my desktop and I went from an average of 160 Mbps to 866 Mbps. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

    Excellent APEx upgrade from my older APExtreme

    Huge Apple product fan and have been using APExpress, APEtreme, and Applt TV for many years now and decided to upgrade to the newer, smaller foot print, APExtreme. Without a doubt, its has increased my local range along with faster data transmission times. The setup was 10x easier than I thought it would be, since my old system is WPA2 with every peripheral secured, but I just plugged it in, booted up my Mac and Airport Utility software, and it walked me through migrating my old systems settings over to the new one, AMAZING and so SIMPLISTIC! Started to check all my other peripherals and everything was linked to the new APExtreme, no problems.

    Xmas woes

    I was given Apple TV for Xmas and successfully hooked it up. But, having done that it pretty much brought down my wifi, what with being a family with an iMac, 2 iPads, 2 mini iPads, 3 iPods an Xbox and Sky Catch up. I then bought Airport Extreme and whilst we haven't noticed a massive improvement in speed, we can now all access wifi with no problem. Well worth the money!

    Worth every penny

    I've tried several brands of routers and had difficulty with streaming HDTV content and signal strength in remote parts of the house. All those problems are gone now. I added a gigabit switch to plug in several devices including Sonos, VOIP, etc. It all works great.

    Best of the best

    Apple released this very well in time when my Linksys E4200 died on me, i thought that was the best router, this is my first apple router and its easy to setup, wide range, better speed and airport utility app compliment everything, if you are serious about your home of work network then don give any second thought, quality never comes cheap.

    Best thing since sliced bread

    We had a 2007 AE and were getting increasingly frustrated with it - lack of range in the 5GHz mode, cutting out when the microwave was used in the 2.4GHz mode (and even on the 2.4GHz band it only barely reached the far corners of the house and not strongly). It wasn't simultaneous dual band, so we had to choose one evil or the other. So, I bit the bullet and bought the new AE and WOW - am I ever glad I did! Our transmit rate is now about 4-5X what it was in any given location and things are generally zippier all round. No more interference from the microwave, either. The older devices work, the newer ones are as fast as can be and the range is wonderful. All good!

    Works great!

    Upgraded from Gen4 Airport Extreme. Range is much better and set up with just as easy as normal. Speeds are better on iPad2 and iPhone 4S and excellent on iPhone 5S. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

    So much better than the Comcast Modem/Router

    I recently bought the Airport Extreme. At the same time, after so many disappointments from Comcast, I switched to AT&T (praying that 6mb download times would not be horrible). Amazing...

    The difference between the "Up to 50mb" Comcast router and the "Up to 6MB" AT&T modem was my fear. With the Airport Extreme on board, it made the difference so slight, it's almost not noticeable. Further...

    When I used to open my Mac, sometimes it would connect to the Internet and sometimes I had to turn off the wi-fi and turn it back on again in order to get on the Internet. Now, I think it's on before the screen is vertical. And, I no longer have any streaming problems. How nice not to have to count the days before U-verse is available.

    Wow!

    Replaced my 4th Gen Extreme. What a difference. Much better signal and range.

    Worth every cent!

    I have a Verizon router that was not doing the job. The Airport extreme is more than adequate. I've been on my Mac while my wife was also on hers & both of my daughters were using their iPads & AppleTV was streaming music without any problems. Totally worth the money.

    DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY

    I was looking forward to Apple's first AC router. I currently use Airport Extreme 5th Gen. Unfortunately, after several tests, I decided to return the unit. I have a fairly big house. Multiple levels. Outdoor area. My 5th Gen Airport output to 2nd Fl office is consistently at 162. Sometimes it pushes up to 207. With the AC model, same channel, I get 81-108. These numbers are based on n clients. Very disappointing.

    If you are considering an upgrade from Gen 5 Airport, I would reconsider until more of your devices are AC ready.

    Sorry Apple. I am fan. But this router is way below standard

    Great buy

    I upgraded my old Airport Extreme to Apple Time Capsule that didn't work, so I bought the new Airport Extreme which was wonderful but decided to get back to Time Capsule and give it another try and it worked beautifully. They are essentially the same product, the difference is of course the wireless HDD on the time capsule. Both work very well as routers, very fast and reliable. True, they have a history of trouble but I hope Apple has worked out the glitches. Very satisfied.

    Airport Extreme

    Skeptical about this product being so good and easy to set up. Hey it's apple I gave it a try purchasing a refurbished one & setting it up the day I received it. The internet didn't work on the router so I called apple support & less than 2 minutes simply changing one setting I was good to go. Set up time took about 10min. What took the longest was the router uploading the data from my OLD router. Works like they said it would Perfect

    Wonderful Router

    This product is top of the line. Along with its time capsule counterparts, the ac wifi is incredibly fast. I have never had an issue with loading anything or airplay. This product is absolutely amazing and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    It Just Works

    As the famous saying goes this device just works. I had constant drop outs with my previous router and my speeds weren't anywhere near what I was paying for (75mbps). I've had this since December 2014 and I could probably count the drop outs on a single hand if that. The speed is consistently fast as well. The best compliment I can give this device is that I rarely even have to think about it.

    it really doesn't get any easier than this

    I have struggled over the past year with my old wireless router, I had a friend tell me about the Apple airport extreme after purchasing it, I was slightly reluctant to believe how easy it was everyone was saying, it literally took me longer to get it out of the package then it did for me to connect it. Signal strength is awesome everywhere on my property and the speed is too! But the best thing is now, my Apple TV works like it should!!!! five stars!!!!!

    Love it! No more connection issues!

    I have always used the modem/router provided by telcos. It would work for 6months and then connection would start dropping out, become slow etc..

    Airport Extreme as solved all of my connection issues!
