    They are functionally similar. The key difference with Time Capsule is it's an all-in-one solution from a single vendor. That may or may not be important for you.

  • I have tried both solution, and finally I sold the airport extreme and the external hard disk. The only difference is you still have one usb port if you use time capsule. Performance are the same for both solution.
