    Great Router

    I must say this has been a joy to own! it is by far faster than my WRT1900acs and thats saying something! the upload on my internet is 345 up and 45 down! Amazing little thing! Only con is its a bit on the pricey side but aren't ll Apple products? Worth it though if you have the money!

    my 2008 model saved my bacon

    When my older iMac died an inglorious death, this little older Time Capsule saved my life, so to speak. When the new one arrived, the time Capsule proceeded to go to work and restore every single thing just as it was, so that using the new iMac was no different than using the prior one. It put every siingle item back where it had been and it was just like having my old computer...except in a sleek new package. I will not ever be without one of these. That one crash was enough to make me a fan for life.

    Great product

    I've had this for two and a half years. Have never had a problem with it. Does what it is supposed to do. Don't think I've ever had to even re-boot it. Would buy it again.

    Amazing

    It set itself up! Didn't have to do anything to it, just plugged it into my Mac and Ethernet port. Super fast, and I can create a guest network. Highly recommend.

    The best router I've used

    I went through my fair share of WiFi routers. All of them that I've used, from Belkin, Linksys, D-link, etc were all painful to setup and had options I'm sure their makers don't even understand. They also got super slow as time went on, need to be restarted every now and again to keep things running optimally. Yes, they were cheap, probably the only good thing about them.

    Enter Time Capsule. I bought this along with my Retina Macbook Pro two years ago now in 2013. It's 2015 and is been well over 2 years, I I thought I would at least share my experience. First, it's so simple to use! The setup was painless, just open Airport Utility on Mac or iPhone and enter the network name and pretty much done! Airport Utility is one simple app as well. Not a lot of options but that's a good thing for me (not that I'm not technologically savvy -- heck I'm a software developer, but I have no patience with hard to use hardware/software).

    I also use Time Machine to back it up and encrypt my backup. Two other people in my house also back up to the same time capsule. 2TB is plenty for us. The Time Capsule automatically cleans up older backups and pretty much takes care of everything.

    After setup, there is 0 maintenance that I've had to do on it, aside from the fact that there were 1-2 software updates, which again, was painless. I don't even remember ever restarting the Time Capsule outside of power outages. Folks, this is one product that I don't mind saying, It just works ™.

    Sure it's about $100-$200 more expensive than the rest of the guys, but you know what? It's worth it, just for the experience alone. You can get a decent AC wifi router for $100 less than this. But they would be more painful to use, harder to maintain, have way lower quality of customer support, and they would need replacing after 1-2 years because somehow they manage to slow down as time goes on.

    This is hands down a 5/5 product for me. Couldn't be happier.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
