    4 Years Later

    No issues. One restore from disk image and perhaps 5 times retrieval of lost file. As a router it has also worked flawlessly.
    We have very slow and spotty net access and so are not moving to the cloud soon.
    I hope time Capsule is supported for some time to come.

    Best solution for my apartment.

    I live in a apartment full of thick concrete walls. Only with this device i was able to have setup a one big and strong wifi network all along the the house. Additional the two tera for backup are great. Setup was amazing simple!

    Simply Brilliant

    I've been using a 3TB Airport Time Capsule for backups for 3 years.

    It's easy to set up and just takes care of business in the background which is exactly what you need a backup system to do.

    I have used it twice for full system restores to recover after a dodgy software installation and to ensure my Mac was virus free after being exposed to potential malware. The whole restore process was simple and easy to do although it is quite slow to complete ( eg 20+ hours to restore 1TB ).

    I would also really like to see Apple enhance the product in five ways:

    (1) Add support for mirrored drives inside the Airport Time Capsule so the data in the Airport Time Capsule is protected.

    (2) Increase the capacity of the Airport Time Capsule so I can more conveniently use it as a remote disk.

    (3) Add the ability to copy the Time Machine data to an external backup disk for offsite storage.

    (4) Enable iTunes to seamlessly offload multimedia content from a Mac to an Airport Time Capsule.

    (5) Provide more user control over the timing and retention of snapshots and restore points.

    Awesome

    I've had this router for 2 yrs, love it! Just upgraded my wifi service to 200Mbps, and the Time Capsule easily handled it (had to buy the latest cable though, I didn't realize that the older cable I was using couldn't handle the increased speed). Bummed that they're not developing new routers anymore

    Easy Setup - No Issues

    This time machine was purchased to replace a 6 year old time machine that was starting to drop it's internet signal almost every other day. Set up was extremely easy and all existing network settings (i.e. password for WiFi) were automatically copied over. So far so good with a reliable WiFi signal.

    Finally I get the speed i paid for!

    This has been the best buy to enhance my network! I am not experiencing the negative review about this device at all. Easy to setup. started to backup my MacBook Pro. To backup 60gb took two hours. Definitely worth it.

    6 Years, going strong

    Best thing ever. Has worked brilliantly without an issue. Way better stability and consistency of signal for Wifi. Smooth backups that I've had to use.

    Works as it should

    I have new to my 3TB two 1TB Time Capsules, this 3 TB Capsule is nice, the backup of devices, the web connection and all it should do, works with no big problems.
    Since I use them behind my router i have a secure WIFI/WLAN proving and a nice quite and secret backup of all my apple devices.
    Thats is really a great solution. One just has to stay inside the apple family, no hybrid solutions and no mix.
    Since I kicked all D-Link and other wanna be Routers out, my WiFI Home network stays stable and reachable for ALL mobile, and all TV Streaming and ALL Music streaming in all 4 BR!
    (Although I leave a FRITZ BOX from Germany at the etisalat LAN direct access. Best Firewall and protection.) So all trouble in the net is either from etisalat hick-ups or because one TimeCapsule needs a Firmware update. But then the Apple WiFi Airport Utility flares up and shows the trouble maker...

    Great must own!

    I have the time capsule and its great. I got the 3TB because you can't have enough storage. Step up was easy as you would expect from apple and it is compatible with verizon fios.l

    FANTASTIC PIECE OF EQUIPMENT - EVERYONE SHOULD OWN ONE!

    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...

    Worth it's weight in gold

    I've just lost a computer, the one I do my full time work on, which was a disaster. I have a Time Capsule, which has been ticking over in the corner of the room for the last year or so. When the new machine arrived, I plugged it into the Time Capsule and did a full restore, and it was as if I had never been without a computer, it had every single file, setting, application from the moment I lost my old computer.

    Anyone who values the content of their computers needs to have something like this, as the moment when your computer is gone is an awful feeling unless you have it backed up completely. The Time Capsule has worked faultlessly and when the absolute worst happened, it's saved the day. Great product.
