    Great product

    Set-up was a breeze. It took about 5 mins. This was a fresh change from the old Dome looking Airport I had from years. I still have it, but the reason for the change was b/c the product kept losing conection to the web. Plus it has out lived its time. The size of the new base station has a very small foot print. Amazing how small this item is. Can't wait to try airplay speakers with it.

    Drops constantly

    This thing is terrible. I use it to extend my wireless network and it drops the connection on a semi daily basis. Have to do a hard reset.

    Don't bother

    It can't stream audio from movies/youtube etc. 2~3 sec delay.
    It can't stream music without continuous cuts, and I've tried all forum tips.
    And Apple don't bother fixing this.
    There are better routers for that price.

    Broken TOS Airplay

    I bought this device for one simple reason. I bought it to stream music to a DAC. The staff at the Apple store in Stamford CT stated that this device should be able to do that and do it well. I also read online that this device should to that as well. The problem is, it does not do this well at all. It constantly drops the audio signal and the audio skips like crazy, making the audio signal impossible to play on high end audio equipment.

    FIX YOUR BROKEN DEVICE AND FIRMWARE APPLE!

    Awesome!!! Couldn't be more pleased!!!

    I'm loving my airport express. My current modem/router combo was constantly dropping the Wi-Fi signal. So I bought this airport and bridged it to my modem and haven't had a problem since.. Couldn't be more pleased. It has great range and even reaches upstairs and in my basement..

    Sometimes it works!

    I've had this little cube for several years now and while streaming music using AirPlay from my MacBook Pro works pretty well most of the time, in the past few months (and I suspect since the release of iOS8) streaming music over AirPlay from my iPhone is just a non-starter. It'll work for maybe 4-5 minutes and then the connection between the phone and the AirPort Express will go down. I know for sure the home network is not the issue. Gonna have to look to other products that support AirPlay, because sadly, on this one, Apple has delivered a doozy. Don't buy.

    Signal drops out

    I bought this thing specifically to stream music from my various Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, Macbook Air) but I'm finding it SO frustrating. When it works it works great. But it's totally unreliable. Having people over for a party and trying to play music that will randomly just drop out every 30 seconds or so...unacceptable! I have a small condo so all equipment is within very close range. There is no excuse for this to happen. This has been an ongoing issue for over a year and Apple has done nothing to fix it or even respond. I'm kind of addicted to Apple products but for the life of me I can't tell you why. If everything worked properly I'd be their biggest fan. But in reality, it just doesn't. Not reliably anyway.

    Works but tempermental during setup

    If you do not think, plug the unit in, install the app, auto config, it works great. If you think about it, look at any settings other than what it wants to use you get no where fast.
    Saying that...
    I have gone through to many Linksys products, more than I can count. They work well at the beginning, about a year and then you get to reset the units daily. So far I have not had any issues with the AE and would recommend this to anyone who does not want to think.
    I have used this unit in Japan as well, worked great on most networks... if you auto configure.
    If it last 2 years I would buy again... stay tuned.

    Works Wonderfully!

    I was getting horrible internet in my apartment complex and decided to give this a try. Got this all set up and BAM! I've never been happier. Set up was a little tricky, but all that took was a call to customer service and they helped me. I would definitely recommend this!

    This thing is Amazing FAST and a breeze to setup

    its faster than muy wireless modem.. its recognized and setup buy my iphone.. works amazing in distance , and just super happy with the Air play... i would not recomend getting the Extreme vertion for USB harddrive back ups or use in general.. USB Ethernet- Wireless drives are really really slow.. just go for a Ethernet or USB 3

    Great update to a great product

    THis product simply works great! I plugged it in to my ethernet network (which already has an airport extreme) and the new airport utility new exactly what I was intending to do. Extend my wireless network via ethernet. A few more clicks and the new airport express was setup and running great. Tried airplay streaming and it seems to work much better.

    The best router ever!!!

    Before Airport Express I had a Linksys from Cisco, and it hardly speeded with 20-30 Mbps from 100 Mbps maximum (contractual). With the Airport Express I'm browsing the internet with around 90-95 Mbps which is excellent! Moreover, is small and very easy to configure, which makes it perfect for my living room.

    Color me impressed

    Because Apple allows anyone to post a review without verifying if they actually made a purchase I'm suspicious of the negative reviews. With that being said I consider this one of my best purchases from Apple. I was able to return my Xfinity router/modem combo that I was renting and have this up and running with just my iPhone! First off it's incredibly easy to set up just download the Airport Utility App and follow the simple instructions! As for as performance, I'm experiencing much better performance than I was experiencing with the Xfinity SMC router. I literally thought that I was going to have to pay for the top of the line internet service to ge5 the performance that I wanted. No more buffering and no more difficulty logging onto my game online. I highly recommend this product!!

    Flawless!

    I bought this together with an Airport Extreme, mostly as a WiFi extender to bring internet to a somewhat remote location on my property. After a simple setup of the Airport Extreme, this little device simply began to work, before I could even download it's utility. Doesn't get better than that. A vast improvement over my previously used and utterly unreliable netgear router system. I used the utility/app only to double check and set up a guest network. I am very pleased with this product.

    Simple. Fast. Sleek.

    Simple -
    Takes only a minute to setup. Quite intuitive and streamlined. One click to play your phone wirelessly to speakers attached to the Airport.

    Fast -
    Carries any speed I can dish out. Streams video on multiple devices at the same time.

    Sleek -
    Minimalist design. Cords all in the back. Small LED indicator.

    Love this!

    Cuts in and out constantly

    I bought an airport express specifically for playing music in my downstairs. Unlike AppleTV it constantly cuts in and out as I move about the room. Extremely frustrating... I've switched units and it makes no difference.

    Airplay is horrible/Router ok

    I bought 2 of these things for a 1500 sqft space and these suckers aren't particle. Network drops out from one end of the space to the other so I have to always walk toward the main one to get stable coverage. Also the Airplay is the only reason I got 2 of them and that feature is horrible, it never works. Maybe works for 1 min then starts dropping out. Apple's quality is really is starting to become like it was back in the 90s. Cool outside box with poor components inside and at the $99 price rage you'd hope for a better product.

    AirPort Express Product Failure

    Purchased Airport Express November 2013. Defective product from the beginning. Very difficult & many unsuccessful tries to set up. Finally set up and worked....for 3 weeks. Quit working and back to several tries on my part, and when support could not get it to set up -- conclusion -- a defective unit. Replacement is on its way.

    Doesn't work wirelessly with a third party router

    I have a Netgear router in my basement and it gives a weak signal to the second and third floor. I purchased the Airport Express thinking that i could use it wirelessly on the second floor to boost the signal. I learned after I bought it that the only way to use this product wirelessly to boost the signal is if your primary wifi router is another apple product such as the Airport Extreme or Time Capsule. You can extend the network with a third party router if the two are connected via ethernet, which practically does you no good considering they are right next to each other. If you want to boost range of wifi wirelessly you cant have a third party router. it's still a good product to use for airplay and airprint.

    Awesome product

    I had a router that came from a CERTAIN TERRI BLE cable company and my service kept cutting out every 5 minutes. I finally discovered it was the router. I turned down said cable company's offer to send a new one for a fee and went out and bought this. i love it. ive had it for about 2 weeks and it has never once cut out. It's one of the best apple products I have ever bought!
