    works fine

    i have a BT hub/router. Problem was signal kept dropping out and coverage poor.
    So, as a mac household, it seemed sensible to disable the wireless function on the bt router and connect an APE to disseminate the wifi signal. I have 3 kids & a spouse constantly on the home network. Dead easy to set up (including parental controls). The system works great, looks great (i hate those tacky looking things with antennae sticking up) & we've not looked back. thank you apple.

    3 TB version. 3 years of flawless daily use

    Used as one of my three Time Machine backups and to house many videos as a router, which is only UAB 2.0 in my model has performed flawlessly for the three years that I've owned it. I/m backup nut so I also have a six TB Synology 2 bay server and a 2 or 3TB (I don't remember, WD My Book for Mac and Time Machine backs up to all of them. I honestly don't understand the negative reviews about this product. We have a fairly large house and did by an range extender but it was no problem. In three years, the router has never malfunctioned. I don't know what more one could ask for or expect.

    IMHO you may buy this product with the utmost of confidence.

    Works great. 2tb is fine but get 3tb if you can afford it

    I got this Airport Extreme to get to the newest generation of WiFi and for backup. I had older, smaller versions and they always worked fine so I expected the same. Well it did work perfectly until one update but that was figured out quickly and easily. I just found out that if I copy all of my iTunes to a portable drive, I can connect it to the AP Extreme and access them there. I have 40k tracks so I need the space on my MacBook Pro. I have been an Apple geek for sometime now and plan to stay there. I use the newest MacBook Pro, 9" iPad Pro, iPhone 6, Airport Extreme 2tb, and will keep expanding.

    Solid Performance

    Replaced a 5th Gen that still worked fine but wanted to add the additional band available with this unit. I run 4 extenders via 4 Airport Express and the transition to the new AirPort Extreme was flawless. I have used all sorts of routers in the past but once I moved to Apple AirPort Extreme life was grand!

    I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants great coverage and stability. These devices are built by Broadcom to Apple specs and quality standards.

    Easy to setup and great performance!

    I decided to stop paying Comcast monthly rent for my wireless modem/gateway.I purchased a Motorola Modem found on the Comcast "compatible devices" list from Amazon and bought the Airport Extreme. I put the switching out process off for a few days fearing I would need to read manuals and then possibly call Motorola or Apple for support. But I found that my just unplugging the Comcast device and putting the cable into the modem, all the lights on it came on. I then connected to the Air Port and went online and found my new network popping up. It walked me through a couple steps and in a couple minutes I was online and so far my speed seems to be about 10 to 15 % better when I check it on "Speedtest" web sites...even Comcast's own site.And the Apple router is so much nicer to look at than Comcast's as well!

    (BTW I am typing this on a MacBook 12 inch I picked up last week...no more typos caused by my fat fingers with this amazing wide key keyboard!)

    Impressive gain over previous generation

    I updated to this version of Airport Extreme from the previous generation. It solved a lot of connectivity issues. My Apple TV and Tivo units are downstairs and on the opposite side of the house from the wifi transmitter. The speed bump and stability of connection improved so dramatically with this new unit that I can see movies, etc... instantly and flawlessly in HD. Areas that previously could not connect now connect and signal strength is better. Nice job!

    So FAST!!!

    my old medialink was newer than the AirPort Extreme when I bought it. I finally started the transition to all apple about a year ago and the router is one of the last pieces to get swapped out. I had no idea how much faster, more stable and reliable a router could be! Using the same cable modem and ISP, my AirPort Extreme is 4 times faster than my medialink was. If I would have just spent the money then, I would have had a router that is still state of the art 2 years later instead of owning this medialink paperweight. Penny Wise Pound Foolish - spend the money now and own a router that'll hold up over time!!

    5 star awesome product makes magic

    I have a 100ft Ethernet chord running along the baseboard of my living room, dining room, and kitchen and pvc piped 4 inches under the ground for about 50 ft to my back house and have this baby connected. It gave me signal strength that one could say maybe had taken a viagra, very strong. It covers 1200 sq ft made completely of bricks and it goes through all walls I get the 2.4 strength perfectly. Well worth the money especially with the Barclay card. Plus this thing looks amazing. It's so slick, it makes me drool. I have my PS4 Xbox360 lan wired in and I use my MacBook Pro flawlessly on the wifi. I phones work well I'm using 200/200 TW cable internet.


    DESIGNERS I KNOW THERE ISNT MUCH MORE TO OFFER FOR A 7TH GENERATION BECAUSE THIS THING IS PERFECT BUT IT SHOULD HAVE BLUE TOOTH CAPABILITIES FOR MUSIC AND AN AUDIO OUT JACK. IT WOULD MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE FOR CONVIENIECES AND MAKING THIS THING A BUILT IN AUDIO BLUETOOTH RECEIVER.

    Outstanding Performance

    Installed this recently and have yet to be disappointed. the range is incredible, i have a 9 room house and a 2 acre yard and i walked around the perimeter watching a youtube video and never once did the video hiccup, stutter, or buffer even at the farthest point away from the unit.
    my only regret is not buying one sooner .

    Great Range Extension

    We moved to a larger house. Older 6 Gen Apple Extreme on first floor and iMac in opposite side of house in finished basement. First floor reception near old router was good at 160 Mbps download, but iMac in basement was only about 6 Mbps download. Thought we'd have to put in a WiFi extender to get signal on that side of house. Instead, got this new Airport Extreme. That made a big difference. Basement iMac went from 6 to 120 Mbps download with new router. That was the only change. No WiFi extender needed. Great range increase and coverage. Great Router!

    AWESOME!!!!

    This is an amazing,easy set up, stylish (no ugly antennas), most powerful router I have ever owned. Range is superb in my 2300 sq ft. Single story home!!
    Wifi connection to all my devices are always at full strength. Down and uploading movies is super fast and smooth!

    Bought a second Apple extreme for the garage. It's even easier set up because all you need is to plug the power and let the 2 pair up. NO 2nd Ethernet connection wire needed. It's that super easy! Not only do I have strong wifi connection in my house, I also have strong connection in my garage and back yard. Perfect for the 2 places I spend the most time in!

    Highly recommend.

    Fixes all wifi issues

    I love this device. We have been Apple fans for so long, I can't believe we overlooked this product. We have had constant wifi issues with nearly 20 clients on our third party access point/router. I have been told by reputable authorities that too many clients can be difficult for a consumer wifi access point. Using the same router, turning off it's wifi, and using the Apple Extreme has solved all problems. I can now get great wifi in parts of the house which were previously dead. And speeds have improved everywhere else. This product is the most overlooked product on Apple's whole product line. IT IS AWESOME!

    worth the extra $

    After some concern about the high price I bought this unit to replace my Linksys EA4500. The ea4500 was considederd a great router but we never got good coverage and the speeds were not great. I must have spent 10 hours over the last while playing with settings and turing things on and off trying to get this thing to work as advertised. As usual, you get what you pay for! The Extreme was up and running in 5 minutes, coverage was spectacular and we were finally getting the speeds we pay for (Cogeco). Our family has 4 iphones, 3 macbooks and a few ipads. File sharing is now a (simple) reality with this great little device. Buy this if you want a router that works as advertised, especially if you are a mac household.

    Extending network

    While our house is not that big, the primary Airport Extreme signal was intermitant at the other end and up stairs. The signal was not consistant because of a 24" stone wall in the middle of the house.
    Got a second Extreme since I figured it would be most compatible and easier to hook up.
    Very good idea.....to get the network set up and the two talking......took less than a minute.......max strength signal now upstairs!!

    Best Router I've used

    I own quite a few Apple products so far (Apple TV, MacBooks, iMac, IPhones) and this is one of the best apple products. I was having trouble with my modem and router from Time Warner. It kept disconnecting ever time my iMac went to sleep and would disconnect from my Apple TV. I finally bought this and a different modem. The set up was easy, less than 5 minutes. My computer hasn't disconnected and it's been faster than ever. Worth the investment!

    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.

    Easiest most awesomely fast network ever!

    I bought the Airport Extreme today after my old (not apple) router keeled over. In five minutes, I plugged my cable modem, printer, and one wired computer in, plugged in the extreme, it walked me through setup, and in 2 minutes flat I was up and running on all 10 devices in the house. My speed is topping out at 60mps download, only because my older cable modem is limiting me. Time for a new modem!

    Being in IT, I know the hardest thing still even in the middle of all our wonderful tech options is the communications/networking piece. Usually, after turning the air blue and working for hours, I can finally bring up a network. Well, as usual, Apple streamlined everything, put it in a pretty package, and made it simple simple simple. I can't say enough good things!

    If you are hesitating because it seems hard to set up a network, go straight to apple for this little beauty. Merci beaucoup Apple!

    ps I am in no way affiliated with Apple. Just a very satisfied multiple times customer
