    Extremely pleased!

    • Written by from Canfield

    My old AirPort Extreme got wiped out in an electrical storm the day this new one came out. I had to wait for a new one to be shipped from China but I am glad I waited. This new one can power 5 bars in areas that used to only see 1 or 2 with the previous model. Thanks Apple! I love it and I'm actually glad the old one got fried or I would never have upgraded.

    This is the best wireless yet from Apple. Very glad they finally offer AC. It looks much larger in the pictures then it really is. Thanks Apple!

    Great Router, great range

    • Written by from Chatsworth

    This is my first Apple router, I usually would buy the other brands like netgear because I found them to be fast and have a greater range, I was excited that apple had finally released a new Router, I went and purchased this router right away, setup was SUPER easy, took 2 minutes literally, I love how consistent the connection is, never a drop in speeds, I do wish it had an setting where u can increase the power to increase or decrease the range so the whole neighborhood does not see it. But overall I love this router 5 STARS!!

    Best router I have ever owned

    • Written by from Indianapolis

    I upgraded from a decent Netgear dual-band N router, and the AirPort Extreme blows it away! Every aspect including speed, range, software, ease of use, and aesthetics. And I don't even have any AC compatible devices yet. I had tried a new Belkin AC router to increase range and was disappointed to find the Belkin had worse performance than the Netgear. The AirPort Extreme blows them both out of the water, though! This is my first Apple router and I am extremely impressed. Well done, Apple!

    Very solid. Uptime for wireless is excellent

    • Written by from Sheboygan

    I bought the airport extreme to replace my badly behaving d-link (their top of the line model). The old one required me to power cycle it several times a day, so I knew its days were limited. The airport extreme has been a solid performer for me. I think setup was just about the easiest ever for me in a router. I used the airport utility on my iPhone and I was up and running in under 15 minutes. It just works!

    Works great, lots of range

    • Written by from Brampton

    Bought this to replace my old d link n extreme router which had an unreliable connection (random disconnections). The airport extreme has more range, always stays connected and is very easy to set up.

    Easy to set up
    lots of range
    reliable
    no problems

    Great for people who aren't nerds!

    • Written by from Topeka

    If you want a router that takes little to no configuration that will manage interconnecting a bunch of Apple hardware, this is your device. If you are setting something up for other people, family, or friends, who don't know how to use routers, and have Apple hardware, this is your device. Why? Because if you do it right, you wont need to ever help them with router problems again!

    No, it isn't for advanced users, it isn't meant to be. If you want to tweak a lot of stuff, or other custom things look at routers that do that. Don't fault the device just because you didn't buy something that does what you want.

    It's ok, i'll leave it at that.

    • Written by from PATERSON

    This thing sure isn't what i was hoping for, it a nice router and all but don't count on it giving you anymore range than it's predecessor. I was under the impression that it's big awkward size was due to a improve antenna, it isn't. I can't recommend to anyone to upgrade their old router to this.

    Amazing Print Server Capabilities

    • Written by from Riverton

    The router works amazing as a print server for the small business world. We were able to quickly setup Xerox and Canon printers, which made the process of network printer amazingly simple. Love this machine!

    Awesome router

    • Written by from westfield

    Replaced my piece of &*#% Linksys router with this one. what a difference. I haven't had a device drop a connection since. I'm getting better download and upload speeds. the range has also increased significantly. the only thing I didn't like about it was the fact that it wouldn't recognize my NTFS NAS. I probably should have done a little more research, but that's life. I'd recommend this router to anyone. I also couldn't get a regular printer that didn't have AirPrint on it to work through the router.

    Range not improved from last gen

    • Written by from Lubbock

    I bought this one to replace a last generation model because there were 2 spots in my house (I don't have a big house - average size at best) where coverage was sporadic and unreliable. I thought that the claimed "better range" of this one would help since I just needed maybe 10 more feet to work perfectly. Well, after installing it in the same exact spot, coverage is exactly the same, or at best maybe 5% better, but not enough for me. So, I ended up using the old Extreme as an extender, which works great, but I was planning on selling it... Oh well... Also, I followed the menus to migrate the settings from the old one to the new, and the setup quit at the end with an unknown error, and I had to reset the new Extreme and do it the regular way. Another problem, the new one does not allow you to use the 5ghz channels for the wifi "n" only, which I used on the old one and it helped me segregate wifi between the old ipads and the new ipads/iphones. Not an option anymore.

    Pros: Looks great, easy to set up
    Cons: Settings migration did not not work, range is not better, missing wifi channels options

    BUY THIS ROUTER, IT'S FAST, FAST, FAST,

    • Written by from Rehoboth Beach

    I had a very new wireless router than was NOT inexpensive, and had lousy coverage, slow speed, and areas of my house where I could hardly get any signal. This router is absolutely a dream come true. You set it up with a simple app on your iPhone or iPad.....as easy as pie. It works PERFECTLY, and EVERYWHERE. All I have to say is, Apple products are not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. They work like no other on the market! And on top of all that, it's beautiful looking too!

    Airport Extreme!

    • Written by from Seminole

    I have recently switched over to Apple from the PC world, to a Mac Mini late 2012 handling all my freelance graphic design needs and invested in this Airport Extreme router. I must say I am highly impressed, as the set up was astoundingly easy and recognized straight away and the speeds/range is almost 10 times what I was getting with my expensive Cisco router that cost around the same price range.

    The fact this is future proofed to wireless AC is a sure bet, you'll be happy you invested.

    Apple AirPort Extreme me918am/a

    • Written by from Kingston

    Super fast and easy set up - even faster performance ! Just moved up from the 5th gen to this newest model . Using late 2011 macbook , with a couple apple tv2 , ipad2 , iphone 5 and iphone 4 . Everything that worked very well previously is moving even faster ! Looking forward to 802.11 Macbook air laptop soon ! Excellent range and power - even working backwards on b/g/n - probably 25-30 percent faster and same in increased range . Happy i made this decision ! Well made and looks great , prefer the aesthetic of this new router over the 5th gen . No longer using 5th gen extreme , and airport express -- the new device puts them both into retirement ! or for sale ! lol

    Incredible speed

    • Written by from Redondo Beach

    I purchased 2 of these puppies to replace my 2 Gen5 Extremes. I upgraded my TWC to 50 Mbps and now I can get 50 Mbps EVERYWHERE in my house when previously I was getting 50Mbps only close to the router and 20 Mbps everywhere else. These puppies are FAST! setup was a charm as it allowed me to automatically copy the configuration of my old extremes, and cleaned up afterwards ready to sell them on amazon.

    I now get 50 Mbps on all my devices, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, 3 iPads, and 2 iPhone 5s, no matter where I am.
