    Works great!

    Got this to stream music to an old speaker system. It works great. Set up took less than a min, plus it extends the range of our wireless network.

    Would only get this if you are looking to expand your network, not if you wanted to use it as your main router. Get the Airport Extreme for that.

    Changed my life. I'm not joking.

    I looked at Bluetooth audio adapters for a week before I realised that Apple made something.
    Now we are streaming the best underground tunes through Itunes to the old stereo and it has made a huge difference to our day to day life.
    If your interested in the sound quality - don't get a bluetooth adapter. Get this.
    It does not do everything I wanted it to though. If you want to maximise this unit you need the AP Extreme as well.
    I wanted to extend my existing Dlink routers range. It is not possible to do this with 3rd party routers anymore (as discussed in the forums).
    Still a wicked unit though.
    BTW: Quite hard to set up with a 3rd party router. You may need to download the old version of the Airport Utility to get access to the settings you need such as WEP40.

    Airport Express

    Just purchased this yesterday to extend my wifi range for Apple TV in family room, and it WORKS LIKE A CHARM! Streamed all movies and content from internet connection through Comcast and had no stops or pauses playing them. It truly did extend my signal further out to the other end of the house, thank you Apple!

    easy to setup

    I plugged it in in my family room and before I could walk to my Mac, my son called out that Airport Utility had spontaneously opened on his Mac. In moments, I had clicked to add the Express to our home network, checked iTunes and saw it was already listed as a selection to play AirTunes. I can't imagine anything easier.

    Drops constantly

    This thing is terrible. I use it to extend my wireless network and it drops the connection on a semi daily basis. Have to do a hard reset.

    Works Great in 5G mode

    I had bought and returned three wireless routers from best buy until I finally talked to geek squad and they recommended the Apple airport express or extreme. I now have no problems with new iPad mini or my iPad second gen loosing connection while on the 5 gh connection. A Belkin and two different net gears would keep kicking me off. Thanks geek squad and apple.

    Great

    I used this to connect it to my xbox through an ethernet and used this to extend my network. Works very well and is easy to use.

    Easy to Install, Easy to Use

    To be honest I am not an expert of networking stuff. I have used many different kinds of wireless routers. While most of them do work, they need some knowledge to setup and maintain, many times I encountered unknown disconnections and I had to restart them and prayed the problems get solved.
    Then I read a lot of information on AirPort, and Apple released the new generation, so I decided to get one. It ended up to be a great decision.
    The install was really easy, just like all Apple products, and the AirPort Utility app gives great visual information on the networking, and changing setup is so easy too. Also the WiFi is very stable, all wireless devices working great! I never see the connectivity limited icon again!
    Plus I haven't even put good use for the AirPlay function or connecting printer yet.
    In conclusion, great product! Worth the money!

    Works with Uverse

    I purchased the new AE to expand my wireless area in my house and allow for greater flexibility of device locations. I have a PC with Win 7 64 and my internet comes by way of AT&T Uverse. the RG Uverse supplies operates on 802.11g and my PC is wired in. I needed to move my PC to an area where there were no ethernet outlets and at temps of 105 outside, I really did not want to be in my attic running new wires. I also had some dead spots in my master suite. This little unit works like a charm, I had to use my iPad to configure it but there really was not much to it. My only complaint would be that I have no idea how to configure it with a PC. I am writing this review on my PC that is now wireless, and my iPad, iPhones, iPods and Apple TV's are all working perfectly and I can still connect to my set top boxes with my Uverse remote app. At a $100 bucks a pop you really can't beat the ease of connection. I may get one more for my master suite just so I can place my tv where ever I so desire.

    Usted to be good

    I had no problem until I updated, since then it keeps disconnecting itself from my network. I have to reset it at least 2x a day. The worst problem is that I can't find a way to resolve this...I guess I have to throw away two airport express, and I'm not happy about it since they cost a lot of money!

    Been using one for about a year...

    Best router I've owned by far. In the year I've been using it haven't had to reset it once. A little disappointed by the lack of wireless AC support and actually bought a non apple $150 AC router to see if it would be worth the upgrade... Long story short I'm back to the express as the primary router for our home and it meets our needs. Internet speeds at around 70mbps in our home although I wish the range was a little better (Get outside of the house and the signal disappears) - if I were to upgrade it would be to the airport extreme, but I couldn't be happier with the reliability. Honestly the main reason why I will not ever buy another brand again after going through several others in the last few years (Linksys, Asus, Netgear) was the rock solid reliability offered by our little Apple router. Zero buyers remorse.

    Great Extender

    I bought this as an extender for my wifi outside. I have a ranch style house and the router is at the opposite of my back patio. Reception there is mediocre. I added the airport express and in less than 2 minutes from connecting with the app, we were up and operating. Everywhere outside is now speedy and hassle free. Don't know how it would work as a primary router, but as an extender it's rock on.

    Great Product and some help with setup

    This is a wonderful product. As to the one star reviews I encountered a similar problem where it keeps asking for the password but there is a simple solution for most I think. If you are using it to extend the range on your existing extreme router for example, when you get to the part where it wants the password to connect it. It doesn't want the password you would normally use to connect a device to your wireless. It wants the password for the main router itself that you setup the day you put it in. Once you know this and enter that password problem solved. Hope it helps someone.

    If it doesn't work perfectly just exchange it

    Please don't be discouraged by the one star reviews stating this unit doesn't work. It should work perfectly, and if it doesn't, just exchange it: I purchased this unit for my daughter to extend the range of our wireless network (served by an older Airport Express) to her room and allow her to stream music. I know one should be able to plug the unit in, set it up in under 15 minutes, and have it to work flawlessly for years. However, setting this unit up failed several times requiring hard resets. Once finally set up, every device in my house could connect to this unit except my daughter's iPhone 4S running iOS 6. A call to AppleCare determined that the unit was indeed faulty, and the Apple store cheerfully exchanged it for another. The second unit was a breeze to set up, and has been working perfectly in every way, as it should.

    Quick and Easy

    It took me literally just moments to set this up with just my iPad. Just download the correlating Airport utility app and you can be set up in less than five minutes.

    Unstable

    Loses its connection constantly. Music playback suddenly clips and stutters, randomly can't be found on my network for airplaying, just disappears with no warning. Has to be reset every 2-4 days. Waste of money. The only product from Apple i regret buying.

    Using as the Ethernet source to my HTR-4065 Yamaha

    Just got a new 5.1 channel Yamaha receiver from Costco. It has AirPlay but only an ethernet port. I used the AirPort Express to wirelessly connect to my existing Linksys WRT400N dual band wireless router. The AirPort Utility walked me through the process although some of the questions the wizard asked me took some time to figure out and I did reset the unit to factory defaults a couple of times because I messed it up. Now the soft green light is on and my Yamaha stereo is happy. The AirPlay feature on my iPhone actally wakes the receiver up from standby and out comes music. Too cool

    Very simple way to extend your WiFi

    I own an Airport Extreme and for a long time had a dead spot in my apartment. After much research on trying to do this with older non-Apple routers (Linksys e2000 and Netgear MR814v2) I owned, I came to the conclusion those routers did not support the repeater mode I needed to make this happen.

    I then proceeded to check out the AirPort Express. After further research, I went for it and I have no regrets what so ever. Yes in typical Apple fashion you do pay a premium, however, it literally took me two minutes to set up and now I no longer have a dead spot in my apartment.

    If you own an apple router and looking to extend the WiFi in your home, I definitely recommend this product/approach. Very simple and hassle free.

    Save your money

    Drops connection once or twice a day and must be unplugged and restarted. Wish I had read the reviews here before I purchased. I now know that's a common problem with the Express.

    My 5th Generation Extreme works great. Hard to believe the Express is made by the same company.
