    Awesome upgrade

    • Written by from Smithtown

    I just installed the new Airport Extreme and couldn't be happier with the results. It has extended my range throughout my house. Far better than the previous version. Apple has done a great job on this product.

    Great router

    • Written by from Montreal

    I just bought the router an hour ago and I am really satisfied. Streaming videos on 4 different PCs and speed hasn't been affected! Also, range is excellent.

    Great buy!

    Replaced my 1st Generation Time Capsule

    • Written by from Warminster

    My 1st generation Time Capsule was nearly 6/7 years old and was starting to show its age as far as sharing out my broadband so I decided to replace it with this and retire my Time Capsule to just back up duties.

    So far the speed increase is unbelievable, if this one lasts as long as the one it replaced I will be very happy.

    love this product

    • Written by from New York

    Once you go mac you never go back.I have had different routers and I may say since I had been using apple routers I would never buy anything else. Well built very strong signal easy to use and you can set up from you're I phone or any cell phone . You can change any set up on the router with you're cell and take charge. Find the router that is best for you but make sure it's an apple router. You will not be disappointed. Save some money now and this will be the only router you will need. Buy more than one apple router to reach those areas that are weak or no signal and they will connect automatically and find all the apple router in you're home and give you great signal coverage.

    fabulous…great range

    • Written by from gladwyne

    We have avery large old house with 2-foot thick stone walls. Had been having difficulty getting the signal throughout the house from the basement. Old one did a good job with a few well-placed express as boosters. The new tower-like extreme is even better (though admittedly, I ran a wire out through an air vent to get the base station out of the basement) and get a much better signal throughout our entire house and up to the 3rd floor as well.

    Another grand slam for Apple!

    • Written by from Boise

    This router is simply amazing. The speed and range is crazy, but I'm most impressed with ease of setup. I upgraded from the previous generation Airport Extreme to this bad boy. Using the Settings app on my iPhone, I found the router and I was asked if I was replacing my old router. I said yes and it automatically moved my settings over from my old Airport and prompted me to plug in my wires and that was it. My network downtime was 38 seconds (yes, I timed it). This, along with a new 802.11ac adapter for my desktop and I went from an average of 160 Mbps to 866 Mbps. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!

    Excellent APEx upgrade from my older APExtreme

    • Written by from Folsom

    Huge Apple product fan and have been using APExpress, APEtreme, and Applt TV for many years now and decided to upgrade to the newer, smaller foot print, APExtreme. Without a doubt, its has increased my local range along with faster data transmission times. The setup was 10x easier than I thought it would be, since my old system is WPA2 with every peripheral secured, but I just plugged it in, booted up my Mac and Airport Utility software, and it walked me through migrating my old systems settings over to the new one, AMAZING and so SIMPLISTIC! Started to check all my other peripherals and everything was linked to the new APExtreme, no problems.

    More ethernet ports

    • Written by from Redwood City

    Why oh why can't Apple put another couple of ports in this thing? There are only 3 usable ports in here after the WAN port. I have a NAS plus two VoIP phone lines, which leaves no room to connect my iMac up with hardline! I think this device, at $199, should have at least 7 usual ports after the WAN port. Look up the price of gigabit routers and other devices in this price range have at least 8 ports. 3 stars until it gets more ports, then 5.

    Worth every penny

    • Written by from Jacksonville

    I've tried several brands of routers and had difficulty with streaming HDTV content and signal strength in remote parts of the house. All those problems are gone now. I added a gigabit switch to plug in several devices including Sonos, VOIP, etc. It all works great.

    Best of the best

    • Written by from danbury

    Apple released this very well in time when my Linksys E4200 died on me, i thought that was the best router, this is my first apple router and its easy to setup, wide range, better speed and airport utility app compliment everything, if you are serious about your home of work network then don give any second thought, quality never comes cheap.

    Best thing since sliced bread

    • Written by from Toronto

    We had a 2007 AE and were getting increasingly frustrated with it - lack of range in the 5GHz mode, cutting out when the microwave was used in the 2.4GHz mode (and even on the 2.4GHz band it only barely reached the far corners of the house and not strongly). It wasn't simultaneous dual band, so we had to choose one evil or the other. So, I bit the bullet and bought the new AE and WOW - am I ever glad I did! Our transmit rate is now about 4-5X what it was in any given location and things are generally zippier all round. No more interference from the microwave, either. The older devices work, the newer ones are as fast as can be and the range is wonderful. All good!

    Upgraded from Gen4 Airport Extreme. Range is much better and set up with just as easy as normal. Speeds are better on iPad2 and iPhone 4S and excellent on iPhone 5S. I would definitely recommend this to a friend!

    So much better than the Comcast Modem/Router

    • Written by from WEST PALM BEACH

    I recently bought the Airport Extreme. At the same time, after so many disappointments from Comcast, I switched to AT&T (praying that 6mb download times would not be horrible). Amazing...

    The difference between the "Up to 50mb" Comcast router and the "Up to 6MB" AT&T modem was my fear. With the Airport Extreme on board, it made the difference so slight, it's almost not noticeable. Further...

    When I used to open my Mac, sometimes it would connect to the Internet and sometimes I had to turn off the wi-fi and turn it back on again in order to get on the Internet. Now, I think it's on before the screen is vertical. And, I no longer have any streaming problems. How nice not to have to count the days before U-verse is available.

    Much More Range

    • Written by from Weston

    I purchased this to replace an older airport extreme for the sole purpose of increasing the range and it worked very well. In the past I had tried airport express as a network repeated and wasn't sure it was increasing performance, but when I switched to the new airport my performance at the far end of the house increased to the same as in the near end (download speeds of 25Gbs - the tops of my FIOS speed - instead of 5 or 6). It's expensive for just a range extension, but I'm sure I'll take advantage of the ac network soon.

    Fantastic!

    • Written by from Sartell

    Dramatic increase in speed and range. definitely worth upgrading from any other router you currently own.

    I get full signal and fast speeds all the way across the street at my neighbors with the new Macbook Air, And about half or more signal bars at same location on iPad mini. just awesome.

    Amazing. Worked well with all devices including xbox 360 Slim

    • Written by from Nanuet

    The setup was a smooth process and very simple. Was up and running within 10 mins. Download speeds and upload speed hands down improved. Connecting to xbox live was not a problem with an OPEN NAT.

    Devices connected to my network include, 2 MBP's (wireless), an iMac (wired), Apple TV (wireless), 2 iPhones, iPad, and 2 smart phones. Heavy internet traffic is usually at night and after 2 weeks of use, I am amazed. All devices were streaming HD flawlessly and playing on heavy games such as Battle Field 3 online had no lag.

    Overall, this product lives to the reviews imo. Great product!!
