    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.

    Airport Time capsule 2Tb

    Another excellent Apple product, I needed a seamless back up solution and fix to months of wireless woes. 10 minutes after unpacking it I was up and running and performing my initial back up from my new iMac.
    It also solved my wi fi problems, neighbouring wi fi routers were making air space very limited and I frequently had annoying drop out with problems reconnecting, now I have a 5 Ghz multi channel connection which is very quick and very reliable.
    The Time Capsule looks uber cool and runs silently, just as well as it is in the bedroom just a few feet away from my head on the bed side units!
    An excellent and very worthwhile purchase!

    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!:)

    Outstanding Product

    I live in a building that has a lot of disturbance. Upgrading to this router solved the issues of spotty service that I was having with a Netgear router. Configuration was performed using my Phone 5S. My pings are now consistent and never get any timeouts. Love it!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Good product and easy to setup

    The Linksys router at home died on me. It was time to get a new router. I was happy with my old Airport so I thought getting this one with reported speed and range improvement would be good features to have. Apple didn't disappoint.

    With my iPad and with Aiport Utility, setup was easy and took a very short while. The purported speed and range improvement was evident. Worth the wait and the money spent.

    The existing Aiport Time Capsule took a few minutes to integrate and extend the wifi coverage to the 2f of the house. I recommend this product to anyone contemplating getting a new router

    Dead in a month

    It's quite hard to trust this as a back up device, when it's dead within a month.
    "Internal disc needs repair".

    Reach is ok, but not fantastic.
    I so regret..........

    Best I've Had

    Replaced an ageing modem/router with AirPort Extreme 2TB. Had to buy a new Modem for ADSL connection but so far everything is working better than before. Easy set up. Backups for two MacBook Pros are seamless. I added an additional Airport the next week and it extended my network to the back of the house giving me full signal throughout. Set up was complete in less than 10 minutes. All my IOS devises automatically switch to the strongest device under the same SSID. Achieving external download rates just under 1mb per sec. Internally I am sending files to Boxee Box at 3-4mb per sec. Brilliant, simple, No hassle.

    Very very good

    Has the second generation time capsule before and upgraded to this as my network was getting weaker and weaker.
    I had about 3.5 mbits speed in my office before and I have an airport express to help me with that. After this upgrade I still have to use the airport express but speed incased to 12 mbits.. An amazing improvement.
    In the rest of my apartment I get speeds between 30 to 80 mbits. Great improvement.
    The backups are much more stable and very much faster ( guess due to increased speed).
    Can recommend anyone to upgrade or buy it for the first time.

    Easy to setup, works perfectly, nice design

    Great value for money, very easy setup, works well with Time Machine, wifi seems very fast despite not having any 802.11ac devices yet. Superb design, doesn't look out of place in media room compared to previous 3 antenna router. 3rd party external hard disk connected via Ethernet and visible with no other work required.
    Couldn't recommend more highly.
