    Huge signal, amazing reliability

    I'll preface this by saying I am a software engineer and have decades of experience with networking hardware both at home and in commercial settings. I have owned many NAT devices, switches, routers, wireless access points etc. My device before this one was an Asus WRT router running a version of Tomato USB that I customized and sported 3rd part high gain antennae that I added.

    That said, this is probably my favorite device for 3 reasons:
    1 - It has remained up and working for months at a time, which means my wife is not asking me to fix the wifi all the time any more.
    2 - We have 7 macs in our house, and they all get backed up all the time, because TimeCapsule and TimeMachine work so well.
    3 - For the first time, every nook and cranny of our 2 story house has strong signal; with one of these.

    6 iOS devices.
    7 Macs.
    2 Apple Watches.
    2 AppleTVs.
    3 kids watching Netflix in HD.
    ~14 Homekit wifi devices (outlets, switches, blinds, popit buttons).

    Can't tell at all they're not all hardwired.

    Computer back up is so well solved I never want to mess with another solution.

    Works Great

    Purchased in April 2014 and has worked superb. I have retrieved data from it numerous times and it has not failed me. Since nothing last forever, I also keep another back-up for when the time capsule fails.(For those of you that rely on only one back-up, loss of data will happen to you some day.)

    What has motivated me to write a review has been the performance of the router. It also has worked great for me. I have a 2 story home with about 1/2 acre and I am able to use my WiFi anywhere on my property without any problem. I recently upgraded with my cable company and included in the bundle package that I got from them was the latest and greatest "lightening fast" panoramic WiFi. The Time capsule WiFi has been faster in every "speed test" that I have performed.

    Best wifi & backup system I've ever used!

    One year and going strong.

    4 Years Later

    No issues. One restore from disk image and perhaps 5 times retrieval of lost file. As a router it has also worked flawlessly.
    We have very slow and spotty net access and so are not moving to the cloud soon.
    I hope time Capsule is supported for some time to come.

    Best solution for my apartment.

    I live in a apartment full of thick concrete walls. Only with this device i was able to have setup a one big and strong wifi network all along the the house. Additional the two tera for backup are great. Setup was amazing simple!

    I've had this router for 2 yrs, love it! Just upgraded my wifi service to 200Mbps, and the Time Capsule easily handled it (had to buy the latest cable though, I didn't realize that the older cable I was using couldn't handle the increased speed). Bummed that they're not developing new routers anymore

    Easy Setup - No Issues

    This time machine was purchased to replace a 6 year old time machine that was starting to drop it's internet signal almost every other day. Set up was extremely easy and all existing network settings (i.e. password for WiFi) were automatically copied over. So far so good with a reliable WiFi signal.

    Best thing ever. Has worked brilliantly without an issue. Way better stability and consistency of signal for Wifi. Smooth backups that I've had to use.

    Great must own!

    I have the time capsule and its great. I got the 3TB because you can't have enough storage. Step up was easy as you would expect from apple and it is compatible with verizon fios.l
