    Great product

    I've had this for two and a half years. Have never had a problem with it. Does what it is supposed to do. Don't think I've ever had to even re-boot it. Would buy it again.

    Amazing

    It set itself up! Didn't have to do anything to it, just plugged it into my Mac and Ethernet port. Super fast, and I can create a guest network. Highly recommend.

    Time Machine

    My Time Capsule, the second one, has died. It was unreliable at best, now it is dead. Looking online, Time Capsules are not reliable.

    Awesome Device

    I absolutely love my AirPort Time Capsule...not only is it my sole backup device for my MBP, MBA, and iPad but it's also my high-speed router at at over 200 mbps. It came in particularly useful when my MBP crashed ~ a year ago and I used it to provide the full restore when the OS had to be reinstalled. The price is excellent and I've had no issues with the device since I purchased it three years ago in 2014. I can't say enough good things about it...it just continues to back up all of my devices and provides wireless internet to my devices as well as my 70" Samsung 4K smart TV. I'm not sure what's behind some of the questionable reviews, but all I can do is share my wonderful experience with my ATC.

    AirPort Time Capsule

    Was very wary at first but eventually took the plunge, glad i did as the set up was very easy (even for me) & so far so good. A highly recommended product.

    Maybe i've expected too high for this product from Apple

    I'm kind of Apple fan boy, happy with all of its products I've used so far expect this TC.
    Primary reason I decided to buy TC is to back-up my data: especially photos for which I traveled and spent a lot of time as it's my hobby.

    Unexpectedly, my TC worked for just over a year, then, began making a loud noise and overheat. Finally stop working expect still making the loud buzzing noise.I did not purchase Apple Care as I believed that kind of product was designed for long term usage and for sure not to be abused. it just sits on a desk and does its thing. This product should last longer than a year especially for more than 300 sgd.

    However, I still don't mind, went to service center, check the status. I won't still mind giving like 50% of brand new price to get it fixed (without losing my important data). Guess what, service center just replied in polite manner that they can't do anything expect exchanging the device (1 for 1) at almost 90% of brand new price. Frankly, I'll still pay for this price if they can recover all my data and exchange new one. Suggested that I can go for 3rd party service center. Normally I choose apple, pay for higher price as I don't want to get frustrated by these 3rd parties, well...well...

    Now, it seems like I don't have any option other than to showcase this TC on my desk as a decoration. Definitely, not worth the money and worst APPLE is not reliable for this product, Apple doesn't take any responsibility for this product literally. You're set on your own.

    Great Product!

    I see many people leaving bad reviews but my experience has been much different. It has worked flawlessly for the past 3 years I've had it. I have hardly ever had to reboot and it works great. Granted I wish the USB drive was 3.0 but who cares. Love this product. Q

    A bit pricy but it just works

    Bought this to replace my netgear router several years ago. Quiet, fast, and so far, reliable. Seemless switching between 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz. Very easy setup. No issues with WiFi dropouts on connected devices. Good strong signal. Use it as the base station for my home network talking to multiple Airport Expresses placed around the house. Have a USB hub connect driving 4 additional USB network drives. No issues recognizing the drives. Only issue I've had is when the internet goes down it sometimes doesn't find one of the Airport Expresses when the internet comes back up. Restarting the affected Airport express resolves the issue. Bought a 2nd one as a spare after Apple announced they were stopping further development. Very satisfied.

    I have had an time capsule for a very long time (flat type) I bought a new 2 TB air port time capsule in January great wireless On The 31st I backed up my 2011 mac book pro for the first time (company issued) The 500 gig hard drive failed on Feb 7th with 270 gig of important files plus pictures from a 35 year anniversary trip I restored my mac book pro from the time capsule ( new 500gig SSD installed) in less than two hours like the hard drive never failed .

    Saved my bacon a number of times

    This would be a 5* review except I couldn't get it to join my network fully wirelessly. I wanted to site it hidden, out of the way somewhere, and join the network wirelessly but after extensive research, it appears it can't do this so I have it ethernet wired into my router. Aside from that issue, it works a treat. My MacBook Pro backs up to it each hour, and I've done a number of full restores with it (once to a new SSD drive which saved me having to buy cloning software and once to a replacement SSD) and the odd single file restore. Not the quickest thing over wifi but in my case a full restore was 500GB so understandable.

    Best router for Apple products! (I am addicted to buying routers).

    I bought a Linksys AC2200 model ea8300 with it's try-band 2.2 Gbit mumimo technology etc. It came with a free Linksys modem. Well its going back. I own a premium Asus router, Nighthawk (Netgear), TP-Link's Alfred, and about 3-4 other (premium) routers. Every time I go back to my AirPort Extreme 2TB I bought last fall. It's the fastest, most reliable, and works the best with my apple products. I recently bought an Airport Express because I heard Apple wasn't going to make them anymore. I plugged that in as an "extender" on my 3rd floor and BAM now those slow/spotty areas I used to have are GONE. Apple is the biggest company in the world for a reason. Their products are the best. I keep looking for more "security" but its all JUNK on the other big name routers. I have tried Pfsense and if you wanted a really good firewall thats all you need (just the software). I use Little Snitch once in a white. But again these AirPort Extreme;s are AWESOME!

    Almost three years and no problems

    I bought this to replace an Airport Express in 2014 and so far so good. No problems whatsoever. No dead spots in my 2 story bungalow, although signal is not that strong outside. Still a good product.

    Not functional

    As a router it is very good. As a storage device - backup for laptops, mac mini, etc. good. Not good for backups of mobile devices. Mobile devices only sync to iTunes on laptop or Mac. Process of creating shortcuts or extensions to a location on the network on the Timecapsule is futile since the links go bad and are later unrecognized. Constantly corrupts those backup files for mobile devices - iPad and iPhone. Home sharing music from here is ridiculous process: laptop must be on somewhere in the home synced to this music library. Only then can Apple TV find the music library in my computers. It can't just find the library as the Timecapsule can't complete the function of home sharing the library itself. Previous mac minis could be converted to TimeCapsules....think Apple should consider merging/consolidating the time capsule/router/apple TV all into one device with better gaming function. iTunes should sync to this again when back on your "homenetwork" on all devices. It should allow for the personal home cloud and their apple cloud to work seamlessly.

    Has been working fine for years

    I got this product roughly 3 years ago and so far so good. Does a great job of backing up my iMac and MacBook pro. I had multiple wireless stations before and I will say, I have had to restart or fiddle with this less than any wireless router/backup hard driver I have ever owned. I just hope Apple continues the product line and comes out with an SSD version soon.

    Overheating

    I bought this product as a real fan of Apple products.

    This has been without a doubt, the worst product apple has ever produced.

    Like most other people who have reviewed this product, mine also stopped working wirelessly after a few weeks which means that the only device that it was backing up was the Mac connected to it by an ethernet cable.

    After 18 months, it has now stopped working altogether with a permanent orange light and a message that it is overheating!!

    Really disappointing as I can now see that this product had issues when it was launched. I am not going to have to purchase another wireless Hard Disk and it certainly won't be another Time Capsule.

    it does just work

    I had previously bought a nether and a linksys router. Both died after just over a year. I am now going on my 3rd year with the AirPort TC and it is still going great. Coverage is, not great. As with all routers placement is key. Thats one advantage of this device. Its compact enough and looks good enough that you don't have the need to hide it off in a closet.

    The TC portion does work good. The HD speed is a bit slow so data recovery is not real fast, but haven't everything built into my device is good. As with all HD, you quickly realize that you probably need a larger HD and its not easy to replace in the TC, though you can plug a USB HD into the back, but then speed is even slower.

    The device is pricey for what you it appears you are getting, but I am very happy with it and would buy again (though probably not with the TC portion and just use my own HD).

    Perfection in every aspect

    I have virgin fibre optic internet service and used to use their super hub 2. Speed was never reaching the limit I'm paying for 200MB/s unless connect via Ethernet. Also wifi signal kept dropping at least once every two days. Also the signal never reached the entire house. A year ago I went for a new MacBook and bought this baby just to use it as a back up drive and thinking the wifi signal would not be different , never been so delighted to be wrong. This router solved all the aforementioned problems and now my wifi connection is perfect : reaching maximum speed I pay for (when checked with Speedtest app or website) and stays max even if far from the router. A year down the line and I have not had a single occasions of dropping signals!!! The signal is strong anywhere in the house and the backup function for the MacBook is a breeze ( runs in the background without affecting the wifi signal in anyway)

    If you are thinking about a new router/ hub with additional back up feature then look no further. Worth every penny and money well spent!!

    P.S the same poor performance noticed with Virgin Superhub 3 when recently upgraded my speed to 300Mb, I now believe these hubs supplied by your ISP is designed in a way to limit the service you get but customers never get informed about this !!!

    Nothing compares

    I have tried many wireless routers and nothing compares to the time capsule. Amazingly easy setup, outstanding reliability, and if that isn't enough it also backs up you're Mac automatically everyday. Is it a little pricey? Yes. I'd pay double the price to not deal with the headache of other routers that have to be unplugged and reset constantly. Another amazing product by Apple!!!!

    AirPort Time Capsule - 3TB

    This is the most FANTASTIC piece of equipment I have ever used. Automatic back-up and a very powerful router. I also use Apple Airport Express's to receive extended WiFi reception in my garden and swimming pool house. My fibre speed is 1Gb, which I can easily receive thirty plus meters from my property. Everyone should own/use an Apple AirPort Time Capsule! Thank you Apple...
