    So far so good...

    I wasn't sure if it was going to make much of a difference from my 1st gen time capsule because i have no devices that utilize the newer 802.11ac wifi connections, however I already feel a speed difference and stability increase by quite a bit. I'd say 15% faster on a normal 802.11n.

    So for those looking to simply update there Time capsules, or airport system. I would say yes!

    Time Capsule be a WIFI network Extender of AirPort Extreme?

    Will the new Time Capsule extend the WIFI network of an Airport Extreme as it did in the past.
    In an 8000 SQ ft home, II needed 3 routers in the past. Time Capsule was like a middle man with multiple functions. Will this still be true with the newer versions?

    Absolutely Fantastic!

    Let me make a long story short - I've owned pretty much every brand of wireless router including D-Link, Netgear, and Motorola routers. My latest mistake was opting for a Motorola combo cable modem/WiFi router because it was about $100 cheaper than the AirPort Extreme and included the required cable modem. Boy was that a mistake. I live in a studio apt. with a small concrete wall dividing my bedroom from the living room, and I couldn't get a signal in bed. I resorted to buying a Netgear range extender, but it cut my speeds by about 90% so I finally gave up and just bought the AirPort. WHAT A DIFFERENCE! I now get 5 bars in my room with nearly 60 Mbps speed (on a 60 Mbps connection), and I couldn't be happier. This router is worth it's weight in gold. Save yourself a LOT of headaches with the other brands and get yourself one of these bad-boys now!

    Great Router. The Best Yet!

    I can't tell you how many high end routers I have had over the years (including other Airport models). This one I just tested and love it. It took only 2 minutes to set up. The key though is the range and throughput which are both better than any other router I have tried. Look, there are some people that say the wireless backup and access is a tad slow. That is true but it is wireless folks. If you are looking for the quickest speed for a extra drive go buy a WD raptor and plug it in to your computer via USB. I find the access time acceptable. If you are using it for Time Machine backups like me, it works in the background so you don't even know if it is fast or slow. Finally Apple designed and created a AirPort product up to the high build quality and performance of all their other products!

    Great Router and Backup Device

    I got this to go along with my Mid-2013 Macbook Air, and coming from using a Linksys E3000 router, this thing works great! Setup is super super easy using the airport utility, and its really nice to be able to set up a guest network. The speed and range is a lot better than my previous router and it is also easy to get to the storage device and my usb attached drive as well! I think the design is well put together as well. My time machine backups through wifi didnt take that long to back up 32 GB of space i was using in the air.

    Unexpectedly Amazed

    Noticeably faster speeds on all devices, none of which are .ac. The only surprise is the software interface needs to be rebooted to see changes such as new devices just joining the network.

    Made it hard to rejoin a speakers-enabled Express since I thought the program would update it's presence on the fly. Only when I closed the program and reopened it did it see the remote base station after painstakingly resetting it several times. Otherwise, very, very pleased. The addition of a guest network was a pleasant surprise. The packaging is the best yet from Apple, and that's saying a lot.

    The coolest Time Capsule yet!... No, really, it's "cool"!

    I owned a 500GB Time Capsule, which most of the time was as hot as my 1st Gen Apple TV, not to mention the hot footprint that the unit leaves. This new Time Capsule not only has a significantly smaller footprint when compared to older models, but even after performing an initial backup of 500GB the unit and surrounding area is cool to the touch!

    OMG! I love this thing!

    I bought the time capsule expecting maybe a slight increase in my wifi speeds and range. After the quick setup with my Verizon fios modem, I noticed that I was consistently getting twice the speeds on wifi through out my home.

    Fantastic Upgrade!

    Had an old timecapsule and it worked pretty well for 5 years or so... This new one has nearly double the speed and range. Highly recommend! Definitely worth the money... pending it lasts for a long time of course.

    Best Time Capsule and Air Port Base

    The main purpose for this purchase was the better distance antenna. It impressed me, I'm so happy Apple makes great products that just work. The migration from my old Time Capsule was seamless and fast and intuitive. Definitely recommend, I can be out at pool in the back yard with great connection and speed.

    Best router I ever had

    It took 10 minutes to make it work (including unpacking, plugging and typing in passwords for new network from my iPad). Network speed is amazing: both on WiFi and gigabit LAN ports. Internal disks are mapped as network shares so you can easily access from any mac/*nix/windows machines.
    The only minor issue I've met: plastic legs at the bottom are sliding on my table so I have to place the device in secured position to avoid accidental drop.

    Great Upgrade!

    Originally I had the older model of time capsule. This upgrade was certainly satisfying! Set-up is easy, automatically backs up my computer and the internet is much faster!

    Time Capsule is Great!

    Amazing!

    I had a top of the line Linksys router before I upgraded. It would get chocked up, and it would reduce my bandwidth to a crawl if I had more than a few devices on the network. The Airport Time Capsule gives me amazing speed, even with over 20 devices connected!

    NEW TIME CAPSULE IS A BEAST!

    I had a new Airport Extreme and Airport Express (both bought within the last year) that were bridged together in my apartment. The Airport Extreme had to be plugged directly into my Xbox for a strong connection, and the Airport Express range was mediocre at best (I have concrete walls in my apartment which have always been a problem).

    This new Airport Time Capsule has allowed me to get rid of both Airports, AND the signal is strong without a direct connect to my Xbox. The strength of the signal is as powerful as they say! Best router I have ever seen, by a long shot.

    Simply fantastic!

    I have owned MANY WiFi routers over the years and this Airport Time Capsule is by far the best. I’ve seen complaints that it is too expensive, however if you were to purchase another high end WiFi router and a 2TB external drive it would cost you well over $300. Super easy to configure yet has the key configuration options you need such as port forwarding and WPS setup for printers. It was easy to extend my network to a second Airport Extreme with the Airport Utility, just a few clicks and I have excellent coverage in all parts of a large one story home.

    Great Router, huge update.

    It works very well, and with the new taller design and ability to send extra "waves" to where your device is, it's great. Also, if you have an older one and are upgrading, I suggest using your old one to extend the network.
