    Works great!

    Got this to stream music to an old speaker system. It works great. Set up took less than a min, plus it extends the range of our wireless network.

    Would only get this if you are looking to expand your network, not if you wanted to use it as your main router. Get the Airport Extreme for that.

    Don't Bother

    Useless piece of rubbish.

    The first one I got didn't work. Got a replacement and it was worse. Sent the third one back and got a refund. It worked for about 3 days... and then nothing.

    I expected more from Apple. Only gave it one star because I couldn't give it zero.

    FANTASTIC!

    This router replaced my Belkin router that I only had for a few months. It would always drop its connection and Airplay would never work so I had to keep unplugging it to restart it. With Apples AirPort Express I no longer have these problems. My Internet is always connected and Airplay is always there when I need it. Thanks Apple!

    Does not work

    I have tried installing 2 of these in the last few days. Both times it will not extend the network connection. I get an error stating "An unexpected error has occurred, please try again". Afterwards the router does not show in the Airport utility window. It only returns after I reset the router by pushing the button.

    I suspected the salesman knew there was a problem for the device. He assumed I wanted to return for a refund, not exchange. My desire to try a second airport seem to caught him off guard. Maybe should have taken his hint and just asked for a refund. I am trying it now and will likely return it in the morning.

    Now, how do I get my older version back from my cousin??

    Apple and HP... Lovely combo...

    I'm not one to write reviews but this is the best wireless station you can buy! The AirPlay is sooo sweet with the right set of 3.5mm jack speakers. I got the Print feature to work using HP ePrint app ( I have an older Photosmart C4280). The app detected the printer. Transferring files to this app from Pages or accessing documents through the supported cloud drives is a breeze! Hit the print button and its good to go! Thank you Apple!

    Changed my life. I'm not joking.

    I looked at Bluetooth audio adapters for a week before I realised that Apple made something.
    Now we are streaming the best underground tunes through Itunes to the old stereo and it has made a huge difference to our day to day life.
    If your interested in the sound quality - don't get a bluetooth adapter. Get this.
    It does not do everything I wanted it to though. If you want to maximise this unit you need the AP Extreme as well.
    I wanted to extend my existing Dlink routers range. It is not possible to do this with 3rd party routers anymore (as discussed in the forums).
    Still a wicked unit though.
    BTW: Quite hard to set up with a 3rd party router. You may need to download the old version of the Airport Utility to get access to the settings you need such as WEP40.

    Airport Express

    Just purchased this yesterday to extend my wifi range for Apple TV in family room, and it WORKS LIKE A CHARM! Streamed all movies and content from internet connection through Comcast and had no stops or pauses playing them. It truly did extend my signal further out to the other end of the house, thank you Apple!

    If you had the last one, don't upgrade

    This unit forces you to always have the 2.4 GHz radio on, even if you want to disable it. For me, I don't like it because I have too many 2.4 GHz devices causing interference. It still only has a 10/100 Mbps connection at the back, so your wireless N, whether you use the 5 GHz band or not, will always be choked back to 100 Mbps, which fine for most HD video, but can be a problem in some cases. The only improvement is that the entire unit doesn't need to be plugged into the wall, but that's not worth the upgrade, there are better non apple products out there.

    Using as the Ethernet source to my HTR-4065 Yamaha

    Just got a new 5.1 channel Yamaha receiver from Costco. It has AirPlay but only an ethernet port. I used the AirPort Express to wirelessly connect to my existing Linksys WRT400N dual band wireless router. The AirPort Utility walked me through the process although some of the questions the wizard asked me took some time to figure out and I did reset the unit to factory defaults a couple of times because I messed it up. Now the soft green light is on and my Yamaha stereo is happy. The AirPlay feature on my iPhone actally wakes the receiver up from standby and out comes music. Too cool

    Awesome

    Bought this after reading some posts online. Wanted to extend my network (airport extreme). It was ridiculously easy to setup. Plugged it in, connected my iPad, settings ->wifi, entered my network password and that's it. Works great.

    Great addition to AirPort Extreme

    I've extended my wireless AirPort Extreme network with Airport Express. Setup is simple, signal strength is great and response time is outstanding. The Extreme is connected to a high speed cable modem in an upstairs study and the express is placed in a downstairs family room. I'm accessing the Internet via the Express with an iPad, a laptop, an iPhone, and a Blu Ray player and have experienced no problems whatsoever.

    Great!!

    Extened my network range easily with a few taps from my iPhone. Don't know why I didn't do this sooner.

    Returned the first day

    I bough this hoping to extend my Wi-Fi, but sadly it failed. It never connected to my router in the first place, I rested it and restored it to factory default 3 times. I tried a lot of times and it never connected. Very disappointing with this product. I looked at the booklet in side and look at my router. The router was perfectly capable but every time my iPhone said "An unexpected error has accored, please try again"

    So good!

    I had two previous airport express base stations. One started on fire internally and the other just didn't last. I spent the last 3 years switching routers and just came back to this one. Yes it is more expensive than comparable models but the set up is so easy. AirPlay and wifi printing are awesome. Plus I can configure 100% wirelessly. The others required me to configure first by direct connect and then wireless connection. Oh and the range and speed are so much better. I just hope this one doesn't burn and lasts.

    Unusable - constantly drops network

    Purchased this to extend the network from my Time Capsule and in "extend a network" mode it is constantly dropping the network requiring a reboot to join again then drops again after 5-15 minutes. Works slightly better in "join a network" mode. Had to go back to my previous generation Airport Express which isn't as fast but is perfectly reliable.

    There are many with the same issues yet no firmware update has been issued by Apple, Google "new airport express extend drops network" to see the scope of the issue.

    Amazing!!

    Just purchased the Airport Express & am very happy with it. It was easy to set up & I love how I can stream my music from all of my Apple products to my Bose using Airplay. Excellent wi-fi connection. Very happy with this purchase. Excellent customer service prior to purchase. Another home run for Apple.
