    Does what it says - and well!

    My original airport express gave up the struggle after 8 or 9 years of sterling service. The 2nd gen was a doddle to set up - 10 mins from unboxing to completion. The 2nd ethernet port is very useful as I can now connect it to my modem over the home powerline network and still have a spare port to attach other devices. Couldn't live without Airplay, even being without it for a couple of days was too long!

    Simple to set up, works perfectly

    Happy to recommend. Simple to set up. It has definitely improved the WiFi signal in my first floor room. I use to drive my Naim amplifier from my Macbook Pro. Hard to fault.

    used flawlessly for years

    I bought my airport express back in 2013 and it has worked flawlessly ever since! it has streamed music to my old hifi, shared printers and now it acts as a guest wifi network. I love it! in fact, I'm tempted to upgrade it for the extreme for the shared hard drive facility (which is all is missing from the express)

    Absolutely Excellent

    I brought the AirPort Express with the intention to use in my student flat. I have tested it at home and it works well in quite a large house so I am looking forward to using this in a much smaller area and less devices. Thank you Apple!

    A sound Apple Product

    When my Netgear wireless router died on me, I tried two wireless routers, neither worked. I hooked up an old wired Netgear router and bought the Airport Express. It is brilliant! Just plug in the Ethernet cable to the Airport Express and it configures itself and works like all Apple products without a hitch. Superb!

    Awesome product

    Just bought this today as the WiFi on my modem was suffering. This now replaces the whole WiFi network in my house and covers everywhere. Coverage is really good and the speed is exactly what I needed.

    If anyone has a flat or two floor terraced house this is perfect for your WiFi needs.

    Excellent

    Third one of these I have bought, first of the new shape and I have to say I prefer it to the old shape. Having the power cord is a much better option than just plugging directly into the mains, it means I can hide it up rather then is sticking out of the socket. Analogue and optical playback works really well with my sony AMP, wi fi signal in my house has never been better.

    Thanks

    Fantastic

    Have had one for less than 12 hours and have been completely blown away. Being new to Apple kit I found it simple to setup and even easier to use. I have been successfully bitten by the Apple bug.

    Airport Express - Great piece if kit

    Purchased this item 6 months ago to connect to stereo system. Easy to set up even with limited knowledge. Works perfectly with BT hubs but I also purchased the Extreme base a few months ago. What a system I have now. You can also use the express to extend your network which is very useful in a large house or when out in the garden.

    Great access point

    Purchased this to extend an AirPort Extreme Late 2009 over Powerline adapters and did the job perfectly. I haven't had to reboot the Express in the 3 1/2 months I've had it which is much better than the previous Belkin AP I had. The only problem is that it lacks Gigabit Ethernet and only has 1 LAN Ethernet port. The audio quality out of the jack also seems to be good and works reliably.

    Great But?

    This is a great product, I purchased it with airport time capsule,the thing I found disappointing is that the fact the released the new base station with ac technology, they did not think to update and release the airport express at the same time.

    I will give it 5 stars, because it is based on performance, just disappointed I could not buy the to with the ac wifi technology

    Without a doubt one of the best purchases I've made.

    This is simply fantastic, my regular router doesn't reach through our whole house but with a power line adapter and this I get the best signal in the house! Plus airplay is a fantastic bonus to me! Well worth the money you are paying for such a brilliant easy-to-use product.

    Brilliant for streaming music to my old and fantastic stereo

    Wow, what a huge gift. I have an old stereo I really like. I want to hook it up to stream music from my Mac and/or iPhone. Was concerned that it wouldn't work or that the sound quality would be less than what I hoped.
    But it is WONDERFUL. Amazing. A beautiful tiny white box with a reassuring green light. Thought it would be complicated or that it would somehow interfere with my wireless network. But it's all better than I could have imagined. The sound quality is superb (bought a good quality cable to go to the AUX in the amplifier.
    Airport express works with analogue and digital. It's wonderful. No need to get rid of that old stereo (if it's good). This is the easiest way to bring it into the 21st century.

    Excellent and just works

    I bought this unit today from Newcastle apple store, got it home and after an easy set up I now have my music from Ipad, Iphone 5 and mac blasting through my hifi.

    The sound quality is really good, al in all a really good wireless solution for streaming music. Brilliant.

    Fantastic Product it works even better when paired with apple devices.

    To all pc users stick to cheap unreliable pc world nonsense, to all MAC fans this product is for us, simply it works. If you purchase this item please make sure you have optic broadband to see the full potential if you use a simple BT type and your internet speed is 3meg or less don't bother to use it as a internet streaming device to your equipment, if its only to use for home sharing or access your iTunes then yes its great. The worlds easiest device to set up less than ten minutes to set up via Mac pc, iPod iPad iPhone and the airport utility for windows. Love this device apple do deliver all the time (except thunder bolt adapter, WHY change something that worked really well).
    I install this equipment in clients homes who want a cheap reliable multi-room audio System and I have never had a complaint from clients, Altho they should incorporate video too that would be the best device in this current market. It will give all top manufactures of multi-room equipment for footballers homes a run for their money.
    Highly recommended.

    To the people who leave poor feedback on this device read the online instructions or if cant be bothered to read phone apple support. After all they do have the best of the best customer support.

    Does exactly what is says on the Tin!

    I purchased this for its Airplay ability and it has not disappointed. Took no more than 10 minutes to set up (Including the unwrapping!). Airport Utility on my iPad made everything simple, only downside is that I now want more so I have wireless music all around the home.

    4 and counting...

    These are brilliant. We have 4 and it is brilliant! You could never have anything this simple with Windows!! Even better is that in the bedroom we have a Tivo box, no power line adaptor needed! Plug ethernet cable from the box to the AirPort and hey presto! Tivo box on the network. In the study we have a printer connected, so easy and simple! If we had more rooms I would buy more, even better use your iPad (remote app) and control it all from one place, just have your mac turned on and you can access your music as well. Apple do know how to make it simple and easy!

    Great bit of Kit

    I bought this to replace the wireless function of my router. It did require a software update but then after configuring, which took all of five minutes. Happy days gone are the problems with wireless printer dropping out, the router trying to find a spare channel on the 2.4GHz range.
    Just solid WIFI performance.

    A breeze to set up and connect

    Firstly I work in IT (don’t judge me) but I am not a techy so I want something that basically just switches on and with the limited amount of effort get connected.

    My Internet service provider is Virgin Media in the UK and I have the 30Mbps service. I have the Superhub (limited range etc) in modem mode as I wanted to extend the range with my own gear. I have previously run Netgear (still great products BTW) with a base unit and an extender which were fine but older units.

    I had been considering Apple Airport products as everyone I speak to said they are very good and easy to set up but was struck on how expensive they seemed.

    Well after buying an AirPort Extreme and an Express I don’t know why I had not done it sooner. This stuff is amazing. From connecting to the modem and setting up I was connected in 15 minutes with the Extreme as the base station and the Express as the extender. The Airport utility is very simple to use and there are even iOS versions.
    Checking the Broadband speed anything from 28 to 31Mbps all of the time. We have 3 iPads, 2 iPhones, 1 Blackberry (yeah I know), a Windows 7 laptop, a Mac Mini and 2 Apple TV’s. All of them work seamlessly through the whole of the house and will even extend into the garden.

    I did have an initial issue with the first Extreme I received and had to return it but the service I received from Apple was excellent. I generally buy direct from Apple even though I could get it cheaper elsewhere.

    If like me you are not sure about what to buy and don’t want to be bogged down by technical details on how to set things up then look no further than the Airport products.
