    This is very good

    I find this very good, my only negative is that the USB port is only for a printer and can not support an external drive. Also, i actually prefer the previous design where the whole thing plugged in to the electric socket instead of this design where there is a cable. Other than that, I find it to be very good and reliable, and incredibly easy to set up.

    Shockingly Bad

    Do not buy this. I bought it to create wireless printing capability for my new iMac and to boost the wireless signal. The wireless printing works, but the wireless signal is appalling. It only works intermittently and the signal from the cable company supplied router is actually stronger.

    In short, not worth it.

    Great!!

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

    Excelent!

    I bought this some months ago and I have to say that its the best router that I've had. I would never switch to another router. My Wi-Fi speed is absolutely powerful. I would totally recommend this product, trust me its worth the $200.

    Not Good

    Ive been using Airport Express for years but sadly this new generation is far from stable. It disconnects from the network and has to be manually connected, and then fingers crossed it will stay online. I have to add before I bought this box the old one worked fine.

    My advise is if you can find an alternative system then use it. £79 is far too much for something that doesn't work properly

    Decline in Apple products; Airport constantly dropping form network.

    I agree with Matty D's review. I have multiple Apple products in my family, (7) MacBooks, (6) iPhones (not including the older generations), (2) Apple tv's, (2) Airport Express, (1) Airport Extreme, and numerous Beats products as well. The Airport Express has to be the worst Apple product I own. Both of my Airports keep dropping from the network, and interrupt music streaming. Anytime I want to stream music via either of my Airports I have to unplug them from the power source, and then plug them back in. Even then, they may only play anywhere form 30 mins up to a full day before they drop from the network, loosing the ability to stream music. I have called Apple support and the gentleman on the phone was very helpful and nice. However, there was not a solution to fix the problem. It is very in-convent to have to stop whatever you are doing to reboot a streaming device. I have Sonos speakers in multiple rooms at our lake-house and the product works impeccably. I am currently looking for another solution to stream music at home.

    Airport Express

    After having trouble with Netgear routers I purchased to AirPort Express. Setup was extremely easy. The speed of my WiFi improved dramatically over my Netgear model 4500. Setting up the guest network was quick and easy. I highly recommend this product.

    Excellent Network Extender

    I am not big on writing product reviews. Other than this one and one for the Airport Time Capsule, I have only written maybe three others. A product has to really impress me for me to make the effort to write a review. Also, I will admit I was an Apple hater until 2011 when I got my first iPhone. Last year I replaced my PC with a Mac Air and I’m fully hooked!

    I used the AirPort Express to extend my network. Works like a charm! Only word of caution, ignore the instructions provided in the Support section on this site. Just make sure the Airport Express is with in range of your Extreme, Time Capsule, or Express base station; plug it in; start Airport Utility and click extend network.

    FLAWLESS-Another great apple product!!!

    I have not had any problems with this product and have had it for going on 8 months.
    It was an addition to my existing home (1,800 Sq ft) network. 3TB time Capsule, AirPort Extreme and 1st Gen. AirPort (1st fl streaming) Express.

    Modem and Time Capsule are on 1st fl. and this unit is on 2nd fl. about 40' apart through a concrete wall and floor.This is my only wired connection.

    I use it to extend my network on 2nd fl for Apple TV, streaming music and surfing the net.

    I have read many of the lower rated reviews and as with any router- location is very important. Avoid electrical interference. Do not try to hide this unit if you expect great range-place at desk to shoulder height.

    AirPort Express is Apple's worst product ever

    I don't know how Apple can get away with producing such a bad product. Try to link two AirPort Express devices and you know why it's such a bad product. I am trying to extend my wifi network with a second AirPort Express in order to stream music wireless. The connection constantly interrupts and this completely destroys my listening experience. I am actively searching for something better. Don't let Apple do your wifi connection! You will be dissappinted.

    Great Wifi Router and Repeater

    I absolutely love this. It's small and strong! I live in a concrete house and getting a wifi signal to connect to the bedrooms is hard. I had this in my living room and it reached into my room. I got a second one to extend the signal to the back of my house.

    AirPlay and Spotify brought me out of the Stone Age

    I've been a bit of a Luddite when it comes to music streaming -- didn't understand the benefits of Spotify and thought my Beocenter 2 from about 2002 was still state of the art. I was actually still buying music CD's!

    Story is too long to re-tell but bottom line is that I discovered that I could stream music, using Airport Express, to my existing B&O system. How cool!

    Bought the Express and had streaming with Spotify up and running in five minutes flat (no BS). It works perfectly and, with Spotify, I have unbelievable access to any/all music on the planet!

    So for $100 I've brought my mega-buck, but obsolete, stereo system into the 21st century and have a whole new perspective on music -- what I listen to, how I access it, everything! It really is revolutionary -- AirPlay and Spotify. (I suppose Apple Music is similar)

    If anyone is looking to buy a bunch of old CD's I have several hundred...

    PS Reason I gave only 4 stars is that I haven't explored the other capabilities of the Express yet.

    Works awesome to extend extreme

    I just purchased one today and set it up to extend my 5ghz network from my extreme. It took 2 minutes to setup and that included the time to find the perfect spot. Before I put this in ,the 5 ghz only went to about 25% of my house and with the express w/extender setup, the 5ghz now covers my entire house which is great for all of our apple products. Highly recommend and super thrilled.

    Best WIFI router we've owned.

    Over the years we have used three service providers, ATT (SBC, Ameritech), Comcast and Verizon. We've used various versions of modems with three different router vendors. Without a doubt the Express has been the most reliable of the three. Our last router had deteriorated into at least a once a day reset. Considering a flight of stairs was involved, it became a royal PITA. The only time I have reset problems is when our current provider has system outages. Otherwise, it is stable as a rock even during heavy lightning storms or after power outages.

    Some of the complaints on reliability had me concerned but we have now had ours for 17 months without a glitch. It supports 2 iPhones, 1 iPad, 1 MacAir, 1 Playstation, 2 Windows laptops and 2 TVs across three levels, each of which has approximately 900 sqft/level, from a location on the first level and has enough gas to cover the front porch and rear deck as well.

    Today, I finally used the AirPlay feature when I moved an old PC speaker system to the lower level, plugged it in and my iPhone was playing music to the connected system immediately, no reconfiguration needed. Apple makes high tech gear that is invisible, not an obstacle and that's why we have continued to add to our  collection!
