    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...

    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.

    All-in-one hard to use

    I bought this AirPort Time Capsule back in 3 August, and it took me almost 18 hours of tinkering before it finally works. It has good wifi, but it keeps losing my backups every 2 weeks or so even if the backup drive isn't full. And I am always scared that it is overheating (how long will it last in this condition?). The good thing is that now my iOS devices can finally AirPrint using my non-AirPrint HP printer.

    So far so good and reliable

    I bought mine 5 months ago and so far it has been working very good even I live around 20 metres away from it. Backing up of my 2 Macs through Time Machine is much better and doesn't drop compared to the netgear and D-link.

    Time Capsule as back up only

    I wish to use my new Time Capsule as a wireless back up device only. Very disappointed in the lack of instructions on how to disable all of the "new wireless network creation" features.

    Very disapointed

    Bought the new time capsule when I up graded desk top and lap top. Unit is very disapointing. My mobile devices constantly fall off the wifi and I must re boot to frequently to re establish connectivity. Using the time capsule, the unit also looses the ip of the desk top (hard wired to it) and the lap top pro. You get one back up and then you must reboot the device and modem. Hate it, have re connected my old airport (works like a charm) and will be throwing this time capsule in the bin,

    New AirPort Time Capsule User

    Was a bit apprehensive after reading all the negative comments. Still go ahead by faith in Apple and I was not disappointed.
    Setup and wireless backup was easy. Wifi signal was good too.
    Now lets hope it lasts :)

    Shorter range than previous generation

    I bought a new Airport time 2TB capsule to replace my last 2TB time capsule. After installation (thank you apple help) we noticed the retransmitted range was shorter. Don't know why, just an observation, nothing else changed in the house but the router.

    Top of the line!

    Went into my local electronics store looking for a new router. I went over to the shelf and picked up a high-end wireless router ($300) Walked over to look at the apple stuff. Started talking to the Apple attended on staff at the store. He informed me that Apple also has a wireless router that is easier to set up And very user-friendly with AC technology ( The latest Wireless Technology) . I certainly did not know this! ( Apple needs to advertise this more) I also was informed for the same manufacturers price of other high-end wireless router! Apple offers a high-end wireless router with a 2 TB hard drive for back ups. I was very interested in this because we own two MacBook Pros with retina display. I purchased the Apple airport time capsule took it home to set it up. The set up was so very easy! From unboxing the airport Time capsule to completion was only 7 minutes! I was totally blown away with the AC Wi-Fi range! I'm getting double the wi-Fi distance that I was used to!! Thank You Apple for simplifying our lives! Keep up the great work!!

    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.

    Excellent thus far.

    I bought an AirPort Extreme which I could not get to work properly, I returned it and had an Apple Store set this up for me and it has so far worked faultlessly.

    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.

    Excellent range & speed

    I thought about upgrading my VirginMedia advanced wifi hub (100MB+ line) to this, when I finally did, I wish I had done it earlier! The range & speed on this device for my MacBook Retina, MacBook Air, iPads etc is amazing.

    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.

    Very good router/backup solution

    It is fast, reliable and takes up only a very small small space.

    I use an app called Time Machine Backup Scheduler from the Mac App Store to schedule daily backups over WIFI. It backs up my system every single night while I and my computer sleeps without any hassle.

    It is very good value and I can connect an external drive to backup the backup disk for double protection. Sweet!

    I always worried that if someone breaks into my apartment and steal my laptop they would take my attached backup drive. It is very unlikely that someone would take my router.

    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!
