    • Written by from Lakeland

    After having a bad experience with another (different brand) back-up drive, I decided to give the Time Capsule a try. While expensive, I have found it is worth every penny. It serves as a 3TB back-up drive AND a 802.11ac router. AC wireless routers are expensive, so considering this gives you a cutting edge WiFi router in addition to 3TB of back-up storage, you really do get a lot of bang for your buck. Besides, it has been very reliable and is quite nice looking to boot. I would highly recommend this product!

    Fantastic

    • Written by from SOUTH EUCLID

    A few weeks ago, I ordered this to replace my first or second gen (don't recall, it's been a while) Time Capsule. The old one was a refurb, and had seen better days. Signal strength was weakening, backup had stopped, it was refreshing IP and dropping connections. There are at least 10 devices in my house connecting all at the same time. I work from home. I was hesitant to order this one based on some of the reviews. If you're like me, don't hesitate. It's great.

    Setup was a breeze. Did it from my iPhone. Backups from my Apple laptop started immediately. All devices connected seamlessly; no need to go through the password routine. Xbox, iPhones, Android phones, printers, Kindles, two work laptops, one personal laptop and more --- lots going on.

    Signal strength is outstanding. I get 5 bars on my Windows laptop (my main work device) consistently, dropping to 4 at the lowest. I do a lot of VOIP talking through this laptop and voice quality in and out is good. Page loading is fast. Document uploads and downloads are great. I have good cable speed and could never understand why my uploads/downloads were so slow. This device has addressed that.

    And lastly, the design is typically Apple genius. The vertical presence is much more friendly to being put on your desk top. Instead of hiding under some shelf and collecting months' worth of dust, it sits there like it's supposed to be there.

    If it starts to fizzle out, I'll be sure to post another review, but so far -- Fantastic.

    Very Happy

    • Written by from Scottsdale

    I've had the 3TB TC for about six months or so. It has been excellent. I connect my three Macs, MP 5,1 (just sold), 2012 mini and 2012 MBP by Ethernet when on my desk. The MBP and iPhone 5c frequently use WiFi. I've had no configuration or connection issues at all.

    The poor thing has even been tortured a little bit by having the reconfigured mini and sold Mac Pro sparsebundles deleted. On another occasion I deleted the TC just to start out fresh with TM backups from the mini and MBP.

    For awhile the TC was holding backups from all three Macs. Could I be happier? Sure, another couple of Ethernet ports and a 4TB or 5TB option.

    Brilliant stuff...with potentials for improvement

    • Written by from Aylesbury

    What an "Apple night". Now Airport Time Capsule and Apple TV are happily running together. I've never experienced an easier network setup. With Airport I've plugged it into the network and it did everything automatically. All I have to do was to provide my ISP username and password. No need to web browser access to 192.etc addresses. The interface was very intuitive and I'm now running two WiFi networks, at 2.4 and 5 GHz so there is a better WiFi traffic distribution at home and the signal is stronger. Highly recommended. One suggestion: allow disk partitioning

    Seamless installation and connectivity

    • Written by from Singapore

    The way my apartment is designed, I needed two 'networks' in the home - one for the front and one for the back. The problem was that in order to print I had to go to the back to print. I also had the old Time Capsule in the back and the Time Machine on my laptops would only work when I was in the back of the flat. Unfortunately, the old Time Capsule had only 1TB space, which was insufficient for 2 Macs in the home.
    Decided to buy this new AirPort Time Capsule. Awesome connectivity. The whole home is covered with printing, scanning and backup for the 2 Macs. I now use, the old Time Capsule to save my Photo and Music libraries.
    No regrets - as usual.

    Well worth the $$$!

    • Written by from Memphis

    We had a HD failure and immediately regretted not having one of these. The setup was easy and only took 5 minutes. I have not yet seen the speed enhancement that reviews have talked about so thats a bummer.

    My only gripe is that it didn't come with a CAT 5/network cable. For $399, it should come with it even if its only a 3-5ft cable, simply because you need it. It wouldn't take much talent to throw one in the box. From a manufacturer cost perspective cables are dirt cheap.

    The minute your MB Pro, iMac, or any IOS device fails it'll be worth its weight in gold.

    Simple, fast, and excellent signal strength.

    • Written by from CLEARWATER

    I am very impressed of how easy and fast it was to be up and running took all of 3 minutes after clicking for the first time.

    1st the back up is easy and fast, and best of all its automatic.
    2nd its all very seamless, to save to , access, and have in your house.
    3rd its a ton of storage that will take a bit to fill up, but with ethernet and USB expandability you can add plenty more.

    Buy it so worth it, and my wifi signal is nearly goof a block and half away.

    My first 3TB Time Capsule

    • Written by from Peoria Heights

    I walked into the store in search for a decent size capacity hard drive and in the back of my mind was hardwired G drive maybe with 1TB of storage. The associate recommended the time capsule and unlike me I did not ask a trillion questions, nor did I research the item before I made the purchase. Its fantastic to access and save to 3TB, in addition I can access with all my iOS devices over there wireless web. Im still researching how to access the time capsule over cellular, but so far Im coming up empty handed. I give this item a very high rating due to the size, space and honestly folks about everywhere we go we have wireless access. Its like having your own cloud.

    Excellent Product

    • Written by from London

    In response to the above review from Tim Q, If you want to extend your current Wi-Fi network the best way to do that is through Powerline wi-fi extender technology. It's cheap too. It works by connecting your router to your home electrical circuit via an ethernet cable and a 13amp plug through an adaptor. All the major router brands make the adapters. You can also use powerline adapters to run an ethernet cable directly from the mains plug socket via an adapter into your sky box or whatever freeing you to place your router wherever you want it.

    This upgrade to the Time Capsule is well worth it. It is so much faster and the 3GB is a welcome upgrade to our old 1GB capsule.

    Quality product.

    • Written by from SALE

    I've just purchased this today from my local Apple Store. By the time I got it home and out of the box, set my Virgin Media Super Hub to Modem Mode, plugged in the AirPort Time Capsule, downloaded the latest firmware via the AirPort Utility App on my iPhone, I was done in 10 mins. It was so simple to set up and I've noticed a performance boost for all my wifi connected devices now. Time Machine is set up on my Mac, and backing up seamlessly in the background. The build quality is superb, as to be expected from Apple.

    Super easy setup, flawless operation

    • Written by from White Lake

    I've set up several wireless routers at home offices and other people's homes but this is by far the simplest setup of all. When I finished the installation process, I couldn't believe I was actually done! I thought the process went too quickly and that I might have missed a step somewhere because the setup process was so fast, but I verified internet connectivity and voila'! I set up each wireless device in our home and we were up and running faster than my Keurig can brew a single cup of coffee!

    Love my 3TB Time Capsule. I've been using it for several weeks now and haven't had a single hiccup. I have a Wifi extender which is plugged in 2 floors above the router and I get 24mbps up and 5mbps down. Streaming Netflix in the spare bedroom won't be a problem with the range, directivity and reliability of this amazing product.

    I had a WD 1TB external drive that I backed up to. It was OK. Then I bought the Airport Time Capsule 3TB. It was so easy to set up, and now I do not have to do anything. Auto back ups, extended wifi range and very fast, I have connected all my devices from my smart TV to my work laptop and iOS devices to the the Time Capsule. It just works, and it looks good. You won't regret buying one of these.

    Had a cicso wireless, it was old but it worked well, but I wanted more power and more TM space. This device is perfect. Looks great, so simple to set up and wireless backup. 2 iPhones, iPad, macair and iMac all have WAY stronger wireless connection with this classy looking white brick. So does the PS3 in the far corner of the basement. Way to go Apple!!!

    We have an older 500G time capsule and a 2TB. This 3TB replaced both and has much better range. Setup is the easiest I've ever encountered. If you want a headache buy something from the competition. If you want the best and easy setup buy this.
