    Even my Garage has strong signal now!

    • Written by from Aliso Viejo

    I have owned an Apple Time Capsule since 2008. I appreciate the tight integration with Mac's Time Machine backups. This is my 3rd Time Capsule from Apple. It works flawlessly. But what is really amazing with the latest iteration is the strength of the wi-fi signal throughout my 1800 square foot, three level town home. It sits on the top floor. It covers every square inch of my town home with strong signals. But the "coup de gras" was my realization that my iPhone had full wi-fi strength in my garage (even outside of it)! I never had connections in the garage. Overall, this is another great time machine.

    Spectacular Bandwidth Improvement!

    • Written by from ROCKAWAY

    I am getting ~4x bandwidth improvement close by but we have a 100 year old house with wire mesh lath and plaster walls and this new antenna array appears significantly less able to penetrate these walls than the last generation Airport/Time Capsule.

    As Advertised

    • Written by from Lawrenceville

    I previously owned the Airport Extreme router from apple and had nothing but a positive experience for the years that I owned it. It was time for an upgrade for all our new IOS devices and iMacs so I took the plunge on the 2TB time capsule. After a slight roadblock with my cable companies modem everything works perfectly. The range is great for wifi as well. My apple TV is in the living room and is blocked by 5 walls and the signal is definitely stronger than the old one. The storage space is just right for my wife and I using two separate macs. All in all it was a great buy made even better with the iPhone app by purchasing the unit on the iPhone and picking it up 20 minutes later at the local apple store. Nice product, as advertised!

    Time capsule = JUNK

    • Written by from Sacramento

    I have been a mac/apple fan boy since the late 90's and have had nothing but good things to say; repeated referrals; and constant upgrades. My time capsule is the biggest waste of money ever spent on technology; and to make it even worse no support from apple. Investing several hundred dollars on something that quits far before my cheap external hard drive is an embarrassment.

    Really a great item!

    • Written by from Wausau

    Fastest router I have ever had...67.8Mpbs/4.2Mpbs! My wife's Air up stair at the opposite end of our home is running 34/3.
    Very easy to set up and I have all the back up space I will ever need.
    Well, maybe.

    Fixed my range problem...

    • Written by from Washington

    I purchased this hoping it would cure my Wi-Fi access problem in the backyard. It worked!! The location of my outdoor audio equipment that I connect my iPad to is in a "Wi-Fi weak" corner. I was getting one or two signal bars on my iPad with the Airport Base Station. Now i'm getting 4 to 5 bars consistently. I was going to use the Airport Base Station as an extension, but there's no need as I have even better Wi-Fi signal coverage through out the house.

    I haven't tried the Time Machine backup app yet, but I'm sure it will exceed my expectations.

    Best money spent

    • Written by from Clarence Center

    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.

    Best router

    • Written by from Southfield

    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,

    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...

    Unexpectedly Amazed

    • Written by from RENO

    Noticeably faster speeds on all devices, none of which are .ac. The only surprise is the software interface needs to be rebooted to see changes such as new devices just joining the network.

    Made it hard to rejoin a speakers-enabled Express since I thought the program would update it's presence on the fly. Only when I closed the program and reopened it did it see the remote base station after painstakingly resetting it several times. Otherwise, very, very pleased. The addition of a guest network was a pleasant surprise. The packaging is the best yet from Apple, and that's saying a lot.

    easy set up but not perfect

    • Written by from San Diego

    i had netgear extreme router before and decided to switch to airport as i'm slowing moving from pc to mac. set up was easy and worked within minutes. the range of wifi, however, is the about same as my previous netgear. i noticed wifi signal strength varies even when i stay at one spot.
    i was hoping for better range and stronger signals but that didn't happen.

    Everything you can ask for!

    • Written by from Pittsburgh

    I purchased this rougher due to the reliability issues I was having with my old one. I have had it for about a week now and am simply amazed at how much better this one is. The range coverage I am getting is almost twice as good as the old one. I also am averaging a speed thru the router 4-5mpbs faster than the old. This router is definitely worth the cost!

    Great Router with the bonus of wireless backup!

    • Written by from Graham

    Added this to an existing Apple Airport network... The cable modem attached to the main Airport Express is upstairs and most of our time is spent downstairs... Before adding the Time Capsule, the average speeds down stairs was about 10 Mbs.. After, they average 55 Mbs! GREAT increase!!!! VERY happy with the purchase! Plus it works as advertised for wireless back ups of both of our macbook pros!

    Great Router

    • Written by from Wallace

    This router/ hard drive (for backup) is awesome!!! The range on it is twice that of the net gear router that I replaced. The support from Apple is spot on and very reliable!!! Would definitely recommend this for anyone looking to purchase a new router or wifi for your home network!!! A+ for Apple and their AirPort Time Capsule and Support Team!!!!!!

    It really is Absolutely Amazing!

    • Written by from canton

    We have a very old building with 18 inch thick block walls that has been added onto 3 times. Signals from routers never made a few feet beyond the office but with airport and one extender we have WiFi in the entire building and it is amazingly faster. Cant say how pleased I am, would recommended it to anyone.

    Just wish I had bought it sooner

    Great product

    • Written by from Lafayette

    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

    • Written by from POUGHQUAG

    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.

    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.
