    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.

    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!:)

    Newer should be better, faster, stronger??

    I had the older flat square Airport Extreme w/no hard drive for storage & that was great, no issues, never a problem, great connection & reception strength always full bars on all devices. I live in a 2 story condo which isn't very large, normal size 1300 square feet & the old Extreme handled it beautifully.

    This newer version although works fine I thought I'd have this killer speed boost & performance would just be off the charts!!?? But uhh no, not any better in fact sometimes worst than the old version. Youtube videos are a great tester & on my Apple TV & MBP w/touchbar the video's load somewhat slower than I thought, still the spinning wheel??

    I was expecting much better

    Nothing compares

    I have tried many wireless routers and nothing compares to the time capsule. Amazingly easy setup, outstanding reliability, and if that isn't enough it also backs up you're Mac automatically everyday. Is it a little pricey? Yes. I'd pay double the price to not deal with the headache of other routers that have to be unplugged and reset constantly. Another amazing product by Apple!!!!

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    It works for me

    I have had this tallish white tower sitting by our Mac for a year and a half. We are average users in ComputerLand and run a Roku . I have had nothing but great performance from our Apple device. It performs backup to the Mac just as scheduled and Wi-Fi signal is strong though out our 1500 Sq Ft home. The ease of setting up the network was amazing. I have a friend who this past weekend attempted to install a new Wi-Fi device and has yet to get it to work properly...I just don't get it. Apparently it is not as easy as the AirPort. We haven't had any of the issues mentioned in the reviews, just flawless performance. And on top of all that, it looks pretty cool too.

    Cannot recommend as a router

    Since I replaced my obsolete Netgear router with a Time Capsule, I systematically experience that my devices are kicked out from the network. May be TC is a nice device for backups but as a router for a WiFi network it is a disapointment.

    Do not buy it!

    Time capsule is a really horrible product, this is not a bad product, but really bad product.

    The drives are extremely slow, the router is also very slow and you will need to restart this device on daily bases.

    I strongly recommend that you look elsewhere, and I know the good looks of this product might make you want to buy it, but please don't if you looking for something reliable.

    Works as intended/Has more potential

    I just purchased this product, I've had no issues so far but I think it could be so much better as a file sharing device between all apple products that i own. I have a mac book pro an iPad and an iPhone I was thinking this was some sort of server between the devices I own. I'm not asking to share with anyone else I just want to store photos or videos here and be able to access them from anywhere I love my MacBook but it has such a small hard drive and I thought this was a solution but I may be returning it seeing as all it serves for is a backup. This is the first Apple product I'm disappointed in. So for unused potential I subtracted 4 stars.
