    DO NOT BUY IF YOU VALUE YOUR DATA

    True Story - This week i did the El Capitan update before checking if my Audio interface would be compatible and unfortunately it wasn't. So the only option, aside from buying a new sound card, was to revert back to Yosemite. This is actually pretty straightforward in principle, but requires restoring from a back up. No problem as i have a time capsule that has backed up several times a day since i bought it 3 months ago. When i needed it the most, the backups could not be found on the time capsule despite being on the phone for about 3 hours with Apple support. I now need a data recovery specialist, at my expense, to recover the data. DO NOT BUY, THIS PRODUCT IS NOT RELIABLE.

    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.

    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!:)

    Easy setup - and reliable

    I have used Apples Time Capsule for now many years in an extended network. Wanted to replace my first model recently, even if it still works flawlessly. But I needed a bigger harddrive, and replacing the capsule was no sweat at all. Hope that Apple will continue to develop and produce capsules and routers.

    Love it BUT

    I too love this, the set up was simple and it works seamlessly on back ups, however, as another reviewer said, I have done a lot of research as I was told by the Sales guy at JOHN LEWIS in the UK that this could be sited in another room even hidden, not so, it does have to be hardwired to the hub which is on the desk in the office in full view!

    Believe earlier reviews - the hard disk can die quickly

    Less than 2 years old, hard disk dead. Many others have the same problem. Bad apple this one. Router good but don't waste your money for storage/back up.

    Perfection

    Unlike some reviewers, I found the box straightforward enough to open, and the kit inside did what I expected, flawlessly, rapidly, even guiding me through replacing an existing TC. Great wireless range and strength. Very impressive piece of kit.

    Best money spent

    I wanted to have an automated backup system for both my Mac and my brother's Mac. And I also wanted something that will help our internet as we are going to have our internet re-done in my home. I needed something to handle a lot of devices and this will do the trick. I absolutely love Apple and their products. I hear a lot of people say, "Once you go Mac, you never go back," and I absolutely DO NOT want to go back to Microsoft. It would be nice if Microsoft had something like this, oh wait, they probably don't have the power to make one since all their products catch viruses.

    UGH-MAY-ZING!!!!!

    I honestly couldn't believe how fast my internet became after purchasing the Airport Time Capsule and then it looks so sleek and beautiful in design sitting in my living room waiting for me to store data. I absolutely love it.

    2yrs after purchase review.

    I hate it, I can't get no wifi. The only reason I waited so long is that could be a good review. Apple would not reimburse your money for bad product. I hope no one buy these junk!

    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.

    I would not repeat. Lack of Windows support since 2015 with last firmware.

    5GHz/2.4GHz Wifi Coverage is not so good... I have the same or even better wifi coverage with some cheap branded wifi equipment (about 40€).
    I would say it's the worst product I've never seen from Apple... but it's not true, because I really think MAC PRO LATE 2013 is even worse.
    Apple has decided to stop supporting driver control from Windows, so if you sell your MAC (let's say, for example, this piece of metal called MAC PRO LATE 2013) then you will probably have no way to control your Airport from Windows since they stopped support with last firmware (7.7.8)

    For sure... I would not repeat with Airport neither with MAC PRO LATE 2013.

    It works for me

    I have had this tallish white tower sitting by our Mac for a year and a half. We are average users in ComputerLand and run a Roku . I have had nothing but great performance from our Apple device. It performs backup to the Mac just as scheduled and Wi-Fi signal is strong though out our 1500 Sq Ft home. The ease of setting up the network was amazing. I have a friend who this past weekend attempted to install a new Wi-Fi device and has yet to get it to work properly...I just don't get it. Apparently it is not as easy as the AirPort. We haven't had any of the issues mentioned in the reviews, just flawless performance. And on top of all that, it looks pretty cool too.

    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...

    Great product

    As all Apple products, this one is excellent. It's lightning fast due to the latest 802.11 ac speed. I've got an IPad Air and a MacBook Air both with ac and I can tell the difference. I had a Linksys EA2700 before which was a good product too, but didn't have the range or speed. The 2TB storage is also an excellent feature to back up the 3 Macs we have in the house.

    A must have

    What can I say. This device delivers - not surprised - I have recently become an Apple convert.

    Left the windows world behind - for good.

    Everything Apple designs is done with the user in mind.

    This device is no different. Set up was easy and backing up my computer is no longer a thought - it's automatic and flawless.

    Amazing range and speed increase over old Airport X

    I purchased the 3TB version ahead of purchasing my new Mac Pro this month. I wasn't expecting such a range and speed boost as I'm still only using the "n" technology in my devices. The third story of my home was always a slow connection and was an issue with streaming TV content through my Apple TV. Now I get full strength and over 20 Meg's per second instead of 3-4. Great Job Jony and team ID!

    A Winner

    I must say I was a bit hesitant on this after reading the reviews, but it sure is a hit with me. My late husband had built a complicated network that I could not get into with 4 different servers. When he passed and I had to unhook what he had built I had a mess on my hands. I received this yesterday, unpacked it, turned it on and now the three main apple computers in the house are completely backed up and runnning and all of my devices are purring right along as well. I was even able to get into the Apple TV which was wonderful as I had not been able to access it at all. So, I am a happy camper and my backups are all completed. PLUS it is tons faster than my Netgear modem ever thought of being.

    Thanks Apple!

    Airport Time Capsule

    Hi I like the concept but the product does not work as advertised. I can't do any backups anymore. The system wants to overwrite the existing backups. Apple's support response is buy a "USB" hard drive and use it for backups. That this issue would be fixed in the next OS upgrade. Two years later and the same story. Save you money if you want a router not an automated backup system.
