    Great Router, Love the Extra Features.

    I actually purchased both an Airport Express, and the Airport time Capsule, and couldn't be happier. I put the Express down stairs and the Time Capsule in my room to extend the Wi-fi network upstairs. It has worked flawlessly so far, and the speed upstairs is a big plus. Time Machine works great on my new Macbook Pro, but the biggest selling point for me was the USB port on the back of the Time Capsule. I reformated an old WD 1 Tb drive I had for my old PC and plugged it into the back of the Time Capsule. I love being able to upload files from my two Macs or my Moms PC to the drive over my Wi-fi network, It's like my households own personal Cloud. Would highly recomnmend to anyone on the market. Thumbs up Apple.

    Fastest Router I have found to date.

    I I was a little skeptical about this purchase at first. I have been a Netgear and Linksys user for many years. I was using a Netgear router R6300 and thought that this was the best you could buy. I plugged in the Time Capsule and apple computer found it right away. Setup was easy which took about 5 minutes and I was back online. This doubled my speed of my wireless devices and the range covered my entire 1800sqft home. I like the fact that you do not need to have a Mac to use this and can set it up using an IPhone or IPad with Airport Utility.

    Easy to install

    I bought this product to improve the backup speed from a 3rd party NAS device. Since this product also had wireless routing capability, I decided to also replace my Airport Express in the hopes of seeing an improvement in range.

    What really impressed me was how easy the setup was. When I plugged the device into the network it asked me if I wanted to add it the the network as a new wireless network, extend the range of an existing network, or replace existing network. I chose to replace. It imported the configuration from my airport express, set my old airport express to default settings. None of the dozen wireless products in my home even noticed the difference. Sometimes reconfiguring a wifi enabled thermostat is a pain when you change wireless routers. In this case the device never skipped a beat.

    You get what you pay for and in this case I feel this a bargain.

    Great!

    I had one of the earlier time capsules, I bought this to increase speed, needed a larger drive and increase wifi range. Does all the above. A+ Apple.... good job!

    Excellent upgrade from previous generation

    This is my fourth Time Capsule since they were first introduced and, so far, it is definitely the best. Significant improvement in both WiFi range and speed. Right now I am getting throughput of 450 on 802.11n with my MacBook Pro Retina 15 and right next to it am getting 850 on the new .ac standard with my new MacBook Air 11. Also the form factor and design are top-notch. The TC looks very impressive on my desk and I heartily endorse springing for the new model.

    Disappointing device from Apple

    Constantly issuing "Backup Verification" messages and starting backups over, I can't recommend this device after a few years of use. In addition, BTM has never worked reliably, and expect a restore to take weeks over Wi-fi for a 200GB backup. But hey, it's a great router!

    Excellent....!!!

    Beautifully designed, looks smart, excellent performance, automatic backup which is what I like most and server level hardware make me feel more confident and reliable. Signal strength is just amazing and speed ..i love my iPhone, Macbook Pro & iPad more, it has boosts their performance as well. All apple family.
    Apple products are space age technology and you are missing if you dont own this or any of their products.

    Great product

    This is a great product. The ad wireless is faster, but my network provider is slow so I can't fully enjoy it. N wifi is also noticbly faster though. It is good for backing up your mac but I wish you could handle the backups easier because time machine sometimes gets confusing. Otherwise, I would recommend this product highly.

    Haven't had a problem yet.

    Everything has worked great for me so far and I've had it for about a year. The backups work and the router works.

    Everything you can ask for!

    I purchased this rougher due to the reliability issues I was having with my old one. I have had it for about a week now and am simply amazed at how much better this one is. The range coverage I am getting is almost twice as good as the old one. I also am averaging a speed thru the router 4-5mpbs faster than the old. This router is definitely worth the cost!

    Excellent

    I have used many different WiFi routers over the years, including custom open-source versions, but this device beats them all in terms of ease-of-use and functionality. I have installed two AirPort Time Capsules so far and they have been flawless, both as WiFi access points and TimeMachine disks, for several months of 24x7 operation. The beam steering antennas provide outstanding range with no drop-outs. They provide solid performance for several Macs, Windows laptops, Android tablets and smartphones. Excellent value.

    Great router, cosmetically my wife approves

    I bought this to extend my network. FiOS router was in the basement and my wife was complaining about slow internet and her iPad2 dropping signal all of the time.

    I plugged in the router to the data port in a upstairs bedroom. Make sure to choose 'create network' using the same SSID, security settings, and password. It's fast. I knew it was going to be better but was surprised on the difference it made. I set up Time Machine on my MBP. It all worked seamlessly with very little set up.

    Bonus: This is cosmetically the best looking router. My wife approves and it almost could pass as some sort of white vase or canister. Now I don't have to hide in some cabinet.

    Perfect in Every Way!! Can't Say Enough!!!!

    I could honestly go on and on about this product. My internet provider had given me a wireless gateway which was supposed to be a wireless N router with all the latest features, and it was horrible - slow speeds, poor wireless signal, and constant problems with things like Air Play. So, I went back to using a four year old Time Capsule which drastically improved speeds and instantly solved the Air Play problems. Then, I decided to purchase a new Time Capsule. The positive experiences began with the physical look and design of the unit and continued from there. This Time Capsule literally doubled my internet speed, now actually giving me the speed I'm paying for - yes even wirelessly. Wi-Fi range has been improved to be even more impressive - even without any 802.11 AC devices on my network. Back-ups with Time Machine are fabulous also. I did an initial back-up of almost 400 GB in around six hours - wirelessly! Yesterday we were streaming a TV show on Apple TV while my daughter streamed a show on her iPad. At the same time, we were performing an initial wireless back-up and streaming music via Air Play in another room, and everything worked perfectly. I would have been confident to make a FaceTime call or anything else on top of that too. Now obviously as you can tell, we have a very fast internet connection - over 100 MBPS, but still we never realized those speeds over Wi-Fi until getting this new Time Capsule. This and the Airport Extreme are the only routers I ever recommend to people. I exchanged my internet provider's gateway for a non-Wi-Fi device and I couldn't be happier! Love it!:)

    Great performance

    I have purchased about a month ago to sync all of my apple products at Home. Wifi speed went up almost 10 times faster than regular router from cable company. Moreover, I have been using time capsule not only back up drive, but also home files sharing for all of music, movies, and doc. Time capsule brought much more options than what I expected. Strongly recommend.

    Fantastic

    Replaced older 3 TB time capsule, fantastic device. It was painless to setup and configure as most things are from Apple. Since it has just been setup last night and my imac did a full backup it seems to me to be faster and stable - but only one day old.

    Not Very Impressed... Slow to Backup on Snow Leopard

    I spent the extra $100 to get the latest and now wish I went with the older (and cheaper) tried and true. Setup was ok, although confusing at times particulary when a screen shared auto configuration with blanks for manual settings and no clear header saying those blanks were for manual configuration. The instructions on that screen also read more like they were written for a computer programmer rather than an end user. That all being said, the real disappointment is the slow, slow, slow backup speed So far it's taken 2 hours to backup 75GB. And it seems to take 2-5 minutes to startup. What's with that? The Apple rep told me this was the latest and greatest and it is the future, but honestly it's at least five times slower than what it's replacing. Maybe it will get better after the first backup, I don't know, but right out of the box it's a disappointment for backup. The Wi-Fi seems to work good, but that's not really the main reason why I bought it. Remember, Time Machine backs up every hour and at that slow speed it's going to be running into itself If I add more than 40GB of data.

    It is Perfect!

    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!

    Great Range, super easy to set up...

    I tried FOUR different routers to replace my 500gig time capsule to get a better signal. No luck. I was about to settle for the n spec dark knight, when this week, BANG a new TC. I'll try it, I thought and I'm glad I did. Better range, no dead spots and 2 tb backup for $299 instead of separate router and hd for $280. Thanks again Apple.
