    Exactly what I needed

    Got one of these yesterday ... and it's brilliant ... only 10 minutes after it arrived I was streaming music from my iPad to my HiFi. and the quality is brilliant ... must be a good DAC in there.

    Note for prospective purchasers ... make sure you install the Airport Utility App (Free) on your iPad (or iPhone or iPod) then the setup is incredibly easy.

    Vast improvment

    The design of this airport express is a vast improvement, having the power cord gives much flexibility. The power cord is very slim lined and as a result maintains portability. Dual Band is a clear advantage, its simple to set up using the airport IOS app and clearly well thought out.

    About Time...

    Normally don't write reviews but this looks like exactly what I need.

    I had to rate it as five stars to compensate for the reviewer that decided it only warranted one star because it now has a separate power cable rather than just plugging it in to the wall.

    For me, the new format is a major improvement and should give me greater scope in positioning the unit to maximise the signal.

    I'm writing this review from my garden

    I wanted to extend the range of my airport base station as signal in my livingroom was poor, it took less than 3 minutes to setup, i now have a full signal in my living room and i can now surf in the garden.

    Simply the best...

    I've used tens of different routers both on home networks and in business.
    At home, I took the plunge to replace a perfectly functional router with an AirPort Express.
    Unbelievably easy to set up, it was significantly faster for both PC & Mac clients than the Belkin router, and in a test, faster too than a Cisco Aironet AP.
    I echo all the other comments regarding having a separate power cable as this gives much better flexibility than the previous plug-in unit, especially when travelling when the power sockets are never where you want them to be or have much space around them!
    In short, I have been so impressed over the last few weeks that I have now bought an AirPort Extreme as a base station (I needed the extra LAN ports), and 3 more AirPort Express units. Three of the airport express units are used as wireless range extenders of the base network (very easy to set up, and far faster than a powerline adapter for a big old house with very solid stone walls). The remaining Airport Express unit now travels with me, bringing easy wireless set up in hotel rooms with cabled Internet. This is often far faster and more secure than the hotel Wi-Fi network. In short, brilliant product.

    set up with sky anytime + within minutes!

    I have an Apple Airport Extreme connected to my Virgin broadband router ( wifi turned off ) and i have just bought an Apple Airport Express to connect to & extend my network. I have used the ethernet port from the Express to use with my Sky box for anytime + and I managed to set it up in under 5 minutes. I did concider the Sky anytime + wireless connector, but for an extra £19 i can get the Apple Airport Express and extend my wireless network as well, so it was a no brainer!!

    Best £79 pound iv spent!!!

    Highly recommended!!!

    Air port Express

    Simply brilliant, just switched on the wifi on the mac, found the airpot express.. let the airpot utility do the rest to link the extreme base station and the airport express .. a few minutes later... the whole house is now covered with internet, I can stream music the TV surround sound system via the output from the express, and connect the Humax TV box to BBC iplayer... perfect!

    WiFi Perfection - Thankyou

    At last....I now have a wireless network that covers the whole house. Easy to setup and extend an existing Airport network. I am using 1 x Airport Extreme and two of these new Airport express base stations connected together over Netgear powerline adapters. Complete WiFi coverage with seamless switching when moving around the house. The added bonus of Airplay and network access to USB printers is superb.

    Must buy

    I have been using this for about 1 month now and have had no issues. I have been using the express with my BT Infinity modem and much prefer this over BT's router due to its low profile form factor. The router has all the bells and whistles most people will need, such as built in firewall, Mac address filtering etc. all in all highly recomended. The express also puts out a better signal than my old BT router too.

    Additional Port

    This is a great little box. The old audio out (Digital Optical or Analogue) and USB from the previous box are still there - thats pretty good for less than 80 pounds
    THEN Apple add a LAN port too! - even more network extension options.
    Improvements to the Airport utility have made set up really easy.
    This is one of Apple's gems

    Superb

    Wanted to extend my netgear router wireless range so it could reach around the garden and have excellent strength. Decided to go with purchasing two of them instead of one Airport Extreme as I figured this would give me a better range. Plugged the first one in the router and the iPhone found seconds. Gave it a password and network created. Wanted to use the second AE to extend the network from the first AE. I couldn't figure out how to do this with my iPhone so used my Mac to configure which it did within minutes.
    Excellent router and would highly recommend.

    Easy to extend network

    Have a wired network and a wireless network. One building is out of range of wireless. In that building I used the WAN socket to plug this in to the wired ethernet, plugged the computer into the LAN socket, and bingo - wired connection OK and my wireless network has been extended to that building. It all set itself up automatically. Could not be simpler.

    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!

    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!

    Does a great job

    I'm using this as an Airplay device connected to my amp and an ethernet port connected to my Sky+ box. Setup to my Netgear WiFi router was fast and uncomplicated, as always it just works, I'm managing to get 300 Mb/s connection speed which is more than enough for what I need, very pleased.
