    Perfect in Every Way!! Can't Say Enough!!!!

    • Written by from EVERETT

    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

    • Written by from Birmingham

    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.

    • Written by from Pflugerville

    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

    • Written by from Clackamas

    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!

    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 performance

    • Written by from Jersey City

    I have purchased about a month ago to sync all of my apple products at Home. Wifi speed went up almost 10 times faster than regular router from cable company. Moreover, I have been using time capsule not only back up drive, but also home files sharing for all of music, movies, and doc. Time capsule brought much more options than what I expected. Strongly recommend.

    Huge improvement on coverage

    • Written by from Portland

    Have owned the TC for about 6 months now and loving it. Wireless range is significantly improved as well as slight increase in download speed. Our unit supports 2 apple Tv's, 2 iPads and 2 MB Pro's without a hiccup, most times streaming simultaneously. Can't wait to try the MIMO architecture once we updated some devices. Well done Apple.

    Fastest Router I have found to date.

    • Written by from Fernley

    I I was a little skeptical about this purchase at first. I have been a Netgear and Linksys user for many years. I was using a Netgear router R6300 and thought that this was the best you could buy. I plugged in the Time Capsule and apple computer found it right away. Setup was easy which took about 5 minutes and I was back online. This doubled my speed of my wireless devices and the range covered my entire 1800sqft home. I like the fact that you do not need to have a Mac to use this and can set it up using an IPhone or IPad with Airport Utility.

    Best router

    This is the best router I have worked with. The initial backup of my laptop took some time but that was about 495 GB of info. But the daily backups only a few min,

    Excellent Speed and Range Increase from Netgear WNDR3700

    • Written by from SANTA CLARA

    Replaced a year old Netgear WNDR3700 and this router is amazing! Speed is very quick compared and range has been extended too. I bought this with an Airport Express to connect a network printer and it automatically connected to it. It also extended the my network without an ethernet cord attached from the Airport Time Capsule and the Express acted as an access point as well as connecting my printer. The Time Capsule portion is also successfully backing up 3 computers as well. I wish I had bought this router earlier! Worth every penny!

    Fantastic

    • Written by from Timberlea

    Replaced older 3 TB time capsule, fantastic device. It was painless to setup and configure as most things are from Apple. Since it has just been setup last night and my imac did a full backup it seems to me to be faster and stable - but only one day old.

    The best just got better

    • Written by from Brooklyn

    Easily the best update to one of Apple's signature devices for me. Takes barely a minute to set up and have running, helped by the excellent Airport Utility. It is everything you want in a backup device, it really does just work.

    The footprint is smaller than the previous version although of course it's taller. The range of this device is superb, even in my 3,600 sq. ft. house. There are full bars and very quick wifi downloads - even using Time Warner - on all other devices in the house [2 iPhones, 2 iPads, 3 iMacs and a Macbook Pro].

    Excellent device. Highly recommended.

    Get this now!

    • Written by from ATLANTA

    For years we suffered with a router that required daily rebooting. The Time Capsule does its job all day, every day. You do nothing.

    We have Comcast service and the measured speed on Apple devices has gone from 7 MB down to a blazing 50 Mbps. Wireless range has improved and setup is a snap.

    Yes, it's a tad pricy, but you get what you pay for. Get one and enjoy it.

    Very highly recommended

    • Written by from San Francisco

    My old (version 5) Airport Time Machine has worked well, but the signal did not reach everywhere in our three-story house. I had read that the signal strength might improve with newer devices, so on a whim I decided to buy this new version. The setup could not have been easier, even by Apple standards--I moved the modem cable to the new Airport and plugged it in. Upon opening Airport Utility, the new device was identified and the new device seamlessly replaced the old. So none of my devices, including Apple TV, the kids' video game consoles, and even a Samsung Blu-ray player had to rejoin (the last one is pretty annoyingly cumbersome). Out of curiosity I clicked on my old Airport and the utility asked me if I wanted to use it to extend the network. I placed it elsewhere in the house and it works great.

    Speeds? On SpeedTest I went from (Comcast cable) 18Mb/sec to 36Mb/sec. Pretty incredible for a few minutes of setup.

    Nice and good-looking router

    • Written by from Παλαιό Φάληρο

    It's one of the very few and robust home solutions for backing up hard drive! At the same time is a very good wi-fi router.

    Plus:
    It's silent, I have met some routers that make a lot of noise

    Very easy to setup with any apple device or windows 7.

    I simultaneously synchronize my iphone, run back up, surf the internet, stream HD content on my apple TV without a hussle and all these through my 72Mbps settled laptop speed.

    Minus are:
    It's mildly hot all the time, not extremely though

    It's formatted as FAT32 so it won't serve windows machines always at it's best. For example Windows System Image requires NTFS.

    You can plug in only FAT32 Hard Drives. If you have a disk formatted otherwise, then it will show up but it won't be usable.

    Easy to install

    • Written by from Houston

    I bought this product to improve the backup speed from a 3rd party NAS device. Since this product also had wireless routing capability, I decided to also replace my Airport Express in the hopes of seeing an improvement in range.

    What really impressed me was how easy the setup was. When I plugged the device into the network it asked me if I wanted to add it the the network as a new wireless network, extend the range of an existing network, or replace existing network. I chose to replace. It imported the configuration from my airport express, set my old airport express to default settings. None of the dozen wireless products in my home even noticed the difference. Sometimes reconfiguring a wifi enabled thermostat is a pain when you change wireless routers. In this case the device never skipped a beat.

    You get what you pay for and in this case I feel this a bargain.

    Best router I've owned yet

    • Written by from Franklinton

    Have had Linksys, Netgear and a couple of other non name brand routers through the years. But this Airport Time Capsule-2TB delivers fast, strong and reliable wireless signal anywhere in my home. To compare, I can be 100+ feet away with a small office, trees and several walls inbetween and still get 40 Mbps. Same spot with the linksys and netgear router I barely get 2-5 Mbps. Also the automatic backup to the Airport Time Capsule ensures flawless and complete back ups.

    Apple, I sincerely thank you for consistently making such easy to use, high quality products.

    Great reputation, great performance!

    • Written by from East Burke

    I had an Airport base station and had no complaints at all, when I saw this one coming out I told to myself, I want one! Do I need one? Maybe not... However, having the combo of an Airport station and Time Machine was the big upgrade for me.

    Totally recommend this unit, works great and performance is outstanding. Pricy, but I would say it will be years before I have to think about upgrading again!

    Thanks Apple!! Again...
