    I have 3

    The Airport Utility makes setup trivial. In less than 5 minutes I had a functioning wireless network. I bought two more and extended my network around and outside the house. This is awesome in the summer/spring time when I am sitting in the backyard sipping a cold brew or early morning coffee while reading on my iPad Air.

    hate this product

    Airport utility doesn't detect anything. The bridge mode gives me the same amount of signal without bridge mode.

    Absolutely Excellent

    I brought the AirPort Express with the intention to use in my student flat. I have tested it at home and it works well in quite a large house so I am looking forward to using this in a much smaller area and less devices. Thank you Apple!

    Digital output is hopeless

    Pros: love the new design, it connects seamlessly to my Time Capsule, the analogue output works fine.

    Cons: the digital output is hopeless. I have my AirPort Express connected to an Arcam irDAC via toslink. The dropouts are infuriating. I wish that I had read the Apple forums before my purchase. Search for “Airport Express (square) skips unbearably with Airplay.”

    Really disappointed.

    Useless piece of junk

    Do not buy one of these. The old model was fine, the new one is a completely useless piece of junk. It won't connect to a network, you cannot reset it, it's impossible to configure, and randomly decides what behaviour it might choose to adopt on a given day. As an example, it randomly chooses to connect to and extend my neighbours wifi, even though I have done a 'factory reset' (which achieves nothing) many times. It will not however, connect to my network, extend it, or create a network of its own. Airport utility as a way of configuring it is also completely broken, with a crazy UX design that is just impossible to navigate.

    If you want a worthless white brick with no wireless connectivity, buy Lego. It is cheaper and more fun.

    Apple Airport Express

    I installed this unit as a wireless access point in my house (connected back to DSL router via ethernet). Works very well and easy to setup using Apple Airport Utility. Can't be faulted. Don't use in wireless extender mode, works best when connected via ethernet.

    LAN output very useful

    I have used the Express to stream music via Airplay successfully for some time.

    This weekend our Sony Smart TV lost connection to the internet through its wifi dongle. I was able to connect the TV directly to the Airport Express using an Ethernet cable, and it works brilliantly. We can watch internet TV programs while streaming music through the same device.

    This is a good solution as our TV and audio equipment are in the same cabinet.

    Ridiculously Simple - The best $119.00 I have spent this year.

    I purchased a new Airport Express yesterday to add to my Wi-Fi network. I needed a LAN port for my home theatre and running cable to the media room was not an option. I run an Airport Time Capsule for Wi-Fi at home, so I had to wirelessly connect the Express to the Time Capsule and then a LAN cable from the Express to the home theatre system. Using the Airport Utility from my iPad the whole process took less than two minutes. It was so ridiculously simple, a few taps on the iPad and I was done.

    Excellent Update

    I recently bought the latest AirPort Express, to replace my first generation AE which had been cutting my wi-fi connection in and out too frequently. I couldn't be happier with the new device. There has been NO loss of signal since I set it up last week. Not just that, but it's producing faster loading results.

    Best purchase I've made in a long while.

    Works awesome

    I bought this at my university bookstore to replace my Linksys E900....its great and stable and all my devices connect flawlessly...everything from my Mac, Ipads, Iphones, android devices, along with all my PCs connect with no issues, and no dropping of signal or freezing of network...its fast enough for everything I do, and my internet throughput increased to my maximum upload and download speed for my ISP...

    Awesome

    I went from downloading/uploading at 11.44/14.27 Mb to 55.33/3036 Mb with this! Huge upgrade in performance! Device took me 2 minutes and 17 seconds to set up and it's so small and convenient i fits perfect on the desk. Easy to take with you for business trips as well.

    fast and consistent speeds

    I purchased the airport extreme to increase the wifi range and consistency of my home network. i live in a 1000 sq ft apartment and my $40 netgear router wasn't doing the job. purchased the airport extreme thinking i would back up my macbook over wifi, but found the speeds to be inconsistent and comparable to what i was getting with the $40 netgear router. returned the extreme and picked up the express. i am so happy i did. i get my advertised cable speeds at 30 Mbps consistently throughout the day. well worth the money and recommend to anyone who is considering upgrading router.

    supports PPPOE

    I used this in conjunction with a Netgear DSL modem/router combo. I configured the Netgear to run in modem only. I was happy to discover that the Airport Express could handle all the other chores, like negotiating the PPPOE connection, DHCP, NAT, and everything else. On top of all that, it was incredibly easy to configure.

    Airport express is amazing

    I bought this router because my current Dlink dir-615 that I've had for about 3 years now was giving me issues. I would have to turn it on and off about once a week and my Internet connection would drop on my iPad but would work fine with my other apple devices. At first I was struggling to install it because I would get a message saying there was a DNS error so I did my homework and found out that when it comes to hardware devices the best thing to do is to shut down the power of previous router, airport express and MacBook Pro for about ten minutes and then power all the devices back on. Airport express works extremely great and I also noticed speed enhancement. Very satisfied with this product :)

    Don't know whay so many people had problems (get the Airport Utility APP!)

    From the moment you power the router on using my iPhone to program it was the easiest setup of a router I've even done. I'm using it with a Vonage adapter and a original Xbox using Ethernet and both work fine. Without the App (Airport utility) you can don the basics of the wireless setup but the router did want to go into bridge mode as it was plugged into the Vonage and was continuing that (makes sense if that's what I wanted)
    Using the airport utility I was able to set it up as it's own router so it was separate than the Vonage and having the Xbox then plugged into the Ethernet port of the express allows my iPhone, computers etc to see it. I was also able to set up the XBOX on a DMZ zone allowing all access to it so my NAT type was open. With the app also you can set up a wireless printer easily using WPS.
    Everything you can do on most routers this makes it easy using the app. If you have a computer can can even more options than the app gives you, again you just have to install the airport utility on those if you want to configure the router from them.

    I originally have 2 Linksys router, I replaced the 1 with a newer one, then replaced that with the apple router. Both routers before I was forever unplugging the router at least once a month sometimes once a week or even once a day to get them going again. The apple I can honestly say been using it for about 6 months and not have to reboot it once.
    Great router!!

    I'm impressed

    I have two older Airport Express (3 or so yrs old). This new version vastly increased my coverage and everything is much faster!!! I do wish they had the option like the old units to plug directly to the wall without a cord for portability but that is my ONLY complaint. Well worth $99

    Perfect

    Easy set up and is paired with my Airport Extreme and i am so happy that i have a wireless network through my whole house now. Thanks Apple for another great product.

    Fantastic!

    Purchased an airport express to extend wireless signal into my bedroom which had very poor coverage. I use an airport extreme as my primary router. Within minutes of opening the box, my bedroom had great wifi coverage. Great product. Very easy set up. Seamless integration with other apple products. Great purchase. Thanks, Apple!

    Airport Express 70% speed boost

    I just added an Airport Express to my network yesterday to allow more simultaneous devices to be connected, and to setup a guest network. The installation had one small problem - I received an error message - "an unexpected error occurred. Please try again". The written setup guide that came with the Airport Express indicated that if there were any problems the first thing to try is powering down the modem and Airport Express, then power back up. Once I did that, everything was flawless. Now the best news - I did speed tests before and after on what was already a fast home network. The download speeds increased by a minimum of 70%. The system has been operating flawlessly and we can now connect our 10 devices without any problem, and still have 40 additional connections left over. Very impressive piece of equipment from Apple.
