    love love love mine

    this is amazing, i really want to get one more as i always like to have at least 2 backups.

    its super simple to use and set up, but the mine thing is that it JUST WORKS like all of apples products do.

    wifi is super quick too

    but one you'll love it

    Good wireless access point however ....

    I bought it couple years ago (actually two of them) and it used to work great, no problems whatsoever however after last firmware update it disconnects all my wireless devices 2-3 times a week! All you can do then is restart the time capsule. Please fix it Apple as its not reliable anymore.

    FANTASTIC PIECE OF EQUIPMENT - EVERYONE SHOULD OWN ONE!

    This is the most FANTASTIC piece of equipment I have ever used. Automatic back-up and a very powerful router. I also use Apple Airport Express's to receive extended WiFi reception in my garden and swimming pool house. My fibre speed is 1Gb, which I can easily receive thirty plus meters from my property. Everyone should own/use an Apple AirPort Time Capsule! Thank you Apple...

    I've owned three - and all of them switch themselves off.

    Yes, I know - triumph of optimism over experience, but I really have tried three of these, and all of them have taken to switching themselves off. After the second one failed, I suspected an electrical power problem, and so bought a UPS to protect the TC. It made no difference; the TC will still switch itself off, after a period that has varied from ten days to under 15 minutes. Disconnecting and then reconnecting the power lead always restarts the device, but I need it to be reliable.

    Worth it's weight in gold

    I've just lost a computer, the one I do my full time work on, which was a disaster. I have a Time Capsule, which has been ticking over in the corner of the room for the last year or so. When the new machine arrived, I plugged it into the Time Capsule and did a full restore, and it was as if I had never been without a computer, it had every single file, setting, application from the moment I lost my old computer.

    Anyone who values the content of their computers needs to have something like this, as the moment when your computer is gone is an awful feeling unless you have it backed up completely. The Time Capsule has worked faultlessly and when the absolute worst happened, it's saved the day. Great product.

    Hopeless

    Works well as a router but hopelessly slow as a backup. 6 hours for 2GB. It's a bug but I'm not prepared to wait for a fix. This has to go back. far too expensive just for an Airport Extreme with an unusable hard drive. Meant to give zero stars but that's not an option.

    Excellent Product

    In response to the above review from Tim Q, If you want to extend your current Wi-Fi network the best way to do that is through Powerline wi-fi extender technology. It's cheap too. It works by connecting your router to your home electrical circuit via an ethernet cable and a 13amp plug through an adaptor. All the major router brands make the adapters. You can also use powerline adapters to run an ethernet cable directly from the mains plug socket via an adapter into your sky box or whatever freeing you to place your router wherever you want it.

    This upgrade to the Time Capsule is well worth it. It is so much faster and the 3GB is a welcome upgrade to our old 1GB capsule.

    Quality product.

    I've just purchased this today from my local Apple Store. By the time I got it home and out of the box, set my Virgin Media Super Hub to Modem Mode, plugged in the AirPort Time Capsule, downloaded the latest firmware via the AirPort Utility App on my iPhone, I was done in 10 mins. It was so simple to set up and I've noticed a performance boost for all my wifi connected devices now. Time Machine is set up on my Mac, and backing up seamlessly in the background. The build quality is superb, as to be expected from Apple.
